A Time For Change

We are having the cold spell of the decade right now. It either makes you want to stay in bed and pull the covers up or rebel against it and try to better your personal world. I am choosing the later right now. (the head in the covers option may happen before our long Wisconsin winter is over however).

I am doing some personal research and soul searching through a couple of sources.

1. I'm reading a great book I found, and I'm sure many of you have already read, called Overcoming Underearning by Barbara Stanny. I am finding it amazing for not only looking at how you handle money but basically how you take care of most aspects of your life. Bottom line; it's all about self esteem.

2. The second book is great for your body or head. It is You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. Her belief is that your belief systems can make you sick and heal you. Very interesting concepts and lots of great affirmations.

So think of me in the 30 below wind chills working on my beliefs, body, and finances. It will be interesting to see what comes of it all.

The last change is something I didn't think I would ever see. Our Samantha (the German Shepard) and Dimitri (our persnickety miss kitty) were found sleeping touching! I guess the cold got to them too!

Keep Warm.


P.S. Oh and I did some changing around in my Dining Room. What do you think of the new Bay Window set up?

Hi Kath,,, how cute, your kitty and dog :) They must be cold. I love the look of your bay window. So cozy. I love the Louise Hay book. I am also a huge Wayne Dyer fan. I need to check out the other book you mentioned. Happy reading. I wish you much clarity! hugs, gail

Kath...the bay window set up was the first thing I noticed and it looks great! Kitty and puppy are cute snuggled up there..they look like a matching set...LOL I haven't read either of the books, but the money managing one is definitely one I need to check in to. And yes, it is a proven fact that you can make yourself sick or well with your attitude and thought patterns.....which is why we all need to de-stress and smile a lot!!! :) :) :)

Pink hugs,

The bay window looks great, nice place to snuggle up with your books and so some soul searching - no wonder you've been so thoughtful.

Hi Kath, your bay window area looks so pretty and cozy. Your doggy and kitty look so sweet snuggled up together! Try to stay warm!

Kath I just love your fuzzy critters sleeping together. How adorable! Sounds like two good books you're reading. I don't think I could handle the cold where you are. I'm in NC and I'm ready to move to FL! I hate cold!

I haven't read the first book, but I have Louise Hays. I always have one in the shop. I like your bay window area and can see why the cat & dog decided to share the love seat. Thanks for sharing and we'll see you out of bed this spring..
Pink Hugs,

Whew...glad I live in FL although it is cold down here also. Got down to 38 the other night...brr! I think reading and soul searching is such a good thing for us all to do. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
