TUT - A Note from the Universe 8/14/2014

Thursday, August 14, 2014

Just look to those who already possess as you wish to possess or who have already achieved as you wish to achieve, and ask yourself whether or not they have some special gift that you don't have? If they have more angels than you? If they're any more loved than you are now loved? If they have suffered more, worked harder, or waited longer than you? If I would permit them to be "luckier" or have it easier than you? And you will see, after careful consideration, that their success depended upon none of these things. It arrived simply because they expected it to arrive, and then lived their lives accordingly.

Boom, there it is -
The Universe

Oh yeah, this note really makes sense to me.

Rainbows!

Sunday, July 27, 2014

The combination of high heat and high humidity is really starting to wear on me and the rest of the desert dwellers. My enthusiasm for getting up early to exercise is gone. While we are in the middle of monsoon season, we rarely get rain. When we do, it's localized and only hits small areas. Mostly it builds up, drizzles a tiny bit and fizzles out. The past three mornings were stifling, but nothing like this morning.

Our shirts were plastered to our bodies shortly after we started walking, and rivulets of sweat ran down our necks. For the first 3 miles the only thing we waved to was the gnats that buzzed annoyingly around our heads. As the sun came up over the mountains we enjoyed cool breezes and the sharp contrast of the stormy sky to our left and the gorgeous pastel clouds around us. As we walked on, we could just start to make out the beginnings of a rainbow.
Gradually, it became a full blown arch that stretched out completely in front of us and a second one that never became as prominent. Well worth getting out of bed for!

7/11/2014 TUT... A Note from the Universe

Friday, July 11, 2014

What if, happiness didn't have anything to do with what you had, where you've been, or who you were, and arose entirely from what you chose to think about, yet nobody knew this?

And what if changing your thoughts, so that you could feel happier more often, would entirely change what you had, who you were, and where you're headed, yet nobody knew this either?

Do you think if we told them they'd choose to think differently?

Thinking of you,
The Universe

Yep, this makes sense to me.

Wonderful Weekend

Monday, July 07, 2014

This 4th of July weekend was one of the most fun we've had in a long time. We went out to dinner and then to the movies on Friday and enjoyed a comedy.

On Saturday we had lunch with friends at PF Chang's and I'm proud to say I ordered off of the vegetarian menu which also had some low calorie options. So, even though we ate out twice, I did not blow my diet. It also helped that we made time to get our walks in.

Sunday, I worked all day and the time off really helped my creativity and productivity. I hope everyone took the time to enjoy Independence Day. emoticon emoticon emoticon
