Oh, Venice! Water, water, water :)
One thing I cannot do without in my apartment is my shower! For the obvious reasons, but also for my most important reason: I do my best thinking in the shower! Ideas and thoughts pop into my mind like light bulbs turning on. And the best thing I did to support my creativity was to change my shower head. :)
Yes, our DIY project for today. 1. Find a fabulous shower head. One that can move, swivel, and most of all massage your back with some force! Who doesn't want a live-in massage therapist and who specializes in acupressure! 2. Once you find the one you want (and it doesn't have to be expensive...mine was $35), don't be afraid to ask for help. I needed my strong boyfriend to take off the old (and a good pair of pliers).3. Replacing the new one is then pretty straightforward!

After all, Einstein did his best thinking near a shower!
Often, I just turn my shower on so I can hear the water fall. Not only do you get a little moisture in the air, but the sound is quite soothing and relaxing. Second plus...a natural waterfall indoors!
Anyway, keep it simple. Find what you can do today to improve your environment to create peace and inspiration. Its the little things that sometimes make the biggest difference. Let me know how it goes! :) Happy Showering! To your health...JLWAC
The History Channel's "King" is well done! A must see.
MLK Jr., my hero, my inspiration, my teacher!
"One man came in the name of love...". The embodiment of what was right and good.
His work is not done. Embrace your own light and gifts given to you, just like MLK Jr., in the name of LOVE! (p.s. it was not easy. anything worthwhile takes sustained effort)
As I listen to this song by The Fray, I'm reminded that we all this ability. Whether its a simple smile, a dollar, or just the act of listening; be THERE, be PRESENT! Everything takes a moment. Everything is a choice. Be a moment for someone.
A patient at work told me today, as I passed her leaving work, "Thank you for just showing you care, it really meant a lot". I had to think about what I did, but I do believe it came down to just being PRESENT at the moment she was describing. Simple acts...the best PRESENT one can give. We are all powerful beyond belief!
You might just save a life....Blessings for a beautiful evening, all of you!
Women, we are needed now more than ever. Your feminine energy will spread. The masculine energy needs us. There is too much violence and not enough heart. At least, what is portrayed in the terrible incidents that have happened with increasing frequency.
Woman must not accept; she must challenge.
She must not be awed by that which has been built up around her;
she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.
~ Margaret Sanger ~
Rise up women and embrace your feminine (and masculine) energies. Help spread compassion, peace, balance, and love. Women are powerful beyond their belief. Back to the basics. Let's restore Balance in this world. Peace, Love, and Hope!
