Friendships – writing




Thank you my friends for being just that!  I am truly blessed.  My friends fulfill me.  They fulfill my mind and my soul.  They listen to my words, thoughts and opinions.  They value my mind.  They inspire me and I know they all value my friendship in return.  That is friendship.  How lucky am I to have you all.  God bless you all.


A few weeks ago, my husband and I had our bank manager over for some business matters and I invited him to stay for dinner.  We have always shared a great rapport with this man and had some great chats about life.  I proceeded to tell him about the book I was writing.  He knew over the years I had mentioned several times that one day I was going to ‘write that book’.  He had always commended me on my vast knowledge on many subjects and had sometimes questioned me on when I was going to put some of that knowledge to use.

Yesterday, I picked up my mail and noticed an unusually large padded envelope amongst the usual bills.  I tried to make out who it was from but there was nothing but a post mark on it.  When I opened it I found a note attached to a book inside.  The book was called ‘Get Published’.  The card said, “Deb, I saw this book the other day and I thought it may help you”.  This really touched me that what I had to say was important enough to a business acquaintance that even a week later he went and bought that book and sent it.   This is the power of the universe.  If you put yourself out there, you will be heard.  If you give, you will get back.  Foremost, you must believe.


Passion – Poetry

Today's thought



Don’t forget how to be frivolous

Don’t forget to frolick

Be Sexy

Remember your passions, act on them

Smile like the world is filming you

Stand tall and proud like a peacock

Strut your feathers

Love yourself

Treat others the way you would like to be treated

Don’t forget to breathe

Thoughts – #Brain health – Food for Thought


Can you even imagine?

All my great ideas and great question marks seem to come to my mind in the still of the night, lying in bed waiting to drift off into slumberland.
Last night I was reading an article in a health magazine and stumbled across an article on Alzheimers and Dimentia. As I was reading , I found myself becoming really frightened at what I was reading.
I know we all know about this terrible disease and we all think it will never happen to us, so in a certain way I think we disregard it like it’s something that we would never want to dwell on happening to us, but in the still of the night when your mind tends to wander into the realms of the ‘what ifs’ I found it scary.
The fact that your mind abandons you and possibly your lifetime memories and memories of loved ones could  be snatched away from you, leaving your life in a dark abyss. I think it just brought to light how we so often take so much for granted in life. Just the simple day to day things we do, we rely on our brains to autopilot us through life.
So in that sinister moment I  shake my head and reiterate to myself that I must keep feeding my brain. The brain needs exercise too, not just the body. We must feed it with knowledge. Eat well, read, write, listen to music, dance, play cards and anything else that challenges ourselves to keep it running like a well oiled machine.
