Exceptional lives evolve continually. I believe this. Choose to Live Life LARGE and exceptionally…Today. Don’t you agree that it makes no matter, our age, whether 20, 40, 60..or more? Catherine R. Cady just turned 75 on Saturday and she is even more awesome now than she was in her 50’s..even though her life has evolved. Carolyn Turi Gallant Short just celebrated her 70th yesterday and she is SURROUNDED by beloveds. Two fabulous ladies that mean the world to me. Exceptional needs and wants change yearly, sometimes, monthly. Sometimes daily. Hourly. It is being AWARE that counts! To define and set priorities. Then focus. Then make things HAPPEN! Exceptional goals never remain static, aspirations continue to build, dreams ever-expanding, like a tapestry in your mind.. Never fear treading this unbeaten path. Be authentic in what is important to YOU!! Make no excuses to yourself or anyone else for that matter. Apologize to no soul for your fearlessness. Be tenacious. Be assumptive. Hold back nothing of yourself. For if you do, it is only YOU holding you back from this exceptional life.. Trust me. If you are thinking it, it is in you. It costs NOTHING to be exceptional…It is FREE! Dig […]
Gentleness is always needed…soft emotions and edges…calmness and a sense of quiet…. It is a day of reflection—and more appreciation of what we encounter each moment of past days day in our individual lives… ..the small things, the LARGE things, the important things—the unimportant things… The gift of our lives is made of moment by moment experiences…a collection of memories, images, smells, tastes, sounds…Terrifying and exhilarating..times of immense love–and undeniable hate…not necessarily of another soul..but of what life has brought down on us–yet again… Yes…life so often takes our breath away.. in the profoundness of it…..

Salute to going into the day wearing Big Girl Pants and celebrating ALLLL the things you are… Happy Sunday wherever you are, with whomever you are doing Sunday with… Just DO it and be YOU!! What’s that you are saying? You want to take that course at the university cause the kids are going into that same university? Go sign up tomorrow. You want to make a complete career change and do something you love, even though it’s less money? But it makes you HAPPY? But people will TALK! And so..Do they live YOU? You want to learn to grow llamas then knit their wool into sweaters? How FUN is THAT! You want to date a guy/gal who is 15 years younger? You go girl/boy! You want to watch the new movie coming out Book Club? So does every woman over 40. You want to take that bus tour to Memphis and a casino in Atlantic City on the way back with money YOUR earned over the hard working life you had, Google and book it TODAY–before you head to dinner with the family.. You want to die your hair that lovely lilac colour Ferrier has out? Then–JUST DO IT!. […]
When I was little I was full of excited anticipation, All the time, breathless for the future.. My mind was full of visions of a life far beyond the small family farm we were fortunate to be raised and nurtured on.. My dear, precious mother would look in my eyes..and talk to me –without moving her lips– She told me to be.. -Unafraid…of becoming whatever I dreamed of–in each stage of my eternity -Unrestrained..in sharing my love and beliefs–spreading my word and the bits of knowledge and experience I gathered over my lifetime.. And -Unapologetic if I stepped beyond boundaries and over thresholds others thought a woman of my station should ever imagine. What a gift she gave me… Thank you, my Guardian Angel. My precious Mother. For being there–as you are even today… Always THERE..
Before you read this—take a moment and think about someone in your life..A mom..sister–aunt–freind..who would rather not be single…Someone who pines for it more at Christmas ..Perhaps you will understand this post a bit more…Many embrace and thrive like crazy in singlehood—and GOOD FOR THEM! :))))) They are very fortunate to have that mindset..Trust me. I wrote this last year and feel exactly the same this year. ~~ For you who feel I need to be grateful for my life as it is..and stop concentrating on finding a nice companion. This is a perfect status that nailed it..:))) The photo of the couple is noce but the one with the words says it all. Christmas is a particularily challenging time of year for a single. Especially for someone like me who loves love and the romance of such an all encompassing and beautiful holiday like Christmas which affects our lives in 100 different and unique ways almost daily for weeks on end.. It IS a fabullous time for couples, isn’t it, my friends?? I bet you love it, too. But doin’t really think about the 100 ways it affects you–almost daily.. 99% of you in my crcle are a half […]
Good morning my most awesome circle of friends and family.. I would LOVE to join you here within this image for an intimate tete a tete.. I wonder what we would speak of.. Would we cry on each others shoulder in joy or sorrow in shared emotion?? Would we Laugh til we peed our panties ladies or till we hugged gents? Would we gaze at each other in amazement that we FINALLY met after all the words we have shared here–and discover that YES–we DO love and admire each other after all? Or would we just revel in our surroundings–breathless in it’s beauty.. So tell me.. What would we speak of, you and I, over coffee this morning.. Tell me..
Evening, dear friends and family!!! Hope you winding down the weekend excited about your what the week may bring…and that you will hop outta the sack Monday morning with something brewing on your mind about your job, making your heart stir and bringing a smile to your face..:) …ain’t nuthin’ to make us nervous about the day, otherwise, cause winter driving is not upon us , thank GOD! I’m starting back to work shortly–not for the love or passion for the job–but because I have to. I hope that changes sometime in the future–sooner than later.. I LOVED my working life before I retired to write my novels. I hope to again.. Why? We spend half our lives in our workplace.. Steve Jobs said it bang on..life goes BY fast! Ask me.. I will be 69 in a couple weeks. I was 44–yesterday. As the golden here, may i suggest a thing I learned way back?…. Don’t waste months, days, heck MINUTES if your job makes your stomach twist in knots..if it doesn’t allow your creative juices to flow or stops you from GROWING as a person… May I suggest an exercise to help you make the change if this […]
Good Morning, Saturday..and good morning all my beautiful people! It’s MID SEPTEMBER already!.. And it’s FALL. A transition time. Some days we should take time to reflect on priorities–and step back and decide where those priorities lie. Basically do a mental OR real-life pro and con list. Don’t you agree? Some days we have to just say STOP–and become aware again instead of how we are so often swept up on the wave of life and letting it simply take us along helter-skelter. But…. Some days we have to take a deep breath and focus on the task of caring for the entity that is “ME”. To rest our souls. For, how can we tend to others of we don’t tend to ourselves? To actually calm our beings and take a breath and regroup. In essence ”take a holiday’ from life and recharge.. Some days we must let life be and give ouselves a little T.L.C..
To CELEBRATING reaching this milestone–68 years young..In SPITE of stage 4 cancer and a nice little follow up heart attack..and other things.. Yep–celebrating every singe day.. With GRATITUDE. To not fighting aging but grabbing on to it and changing life up to be filled with gratitude and thankfulness EVERY single day that I CAN do so! To Embracing the gift of life–a thing that fringed on loosing too many times… To honouring those beloveds I have lost before me—knowing they added endlessly to the thing that is my soul… And taking on the responsibility of living it properly, hoping to inspire, guide and mentor with my manuscripts and by example, leaving a footprint of a decent, good and loving human being when my time is up.. Onwards from Pammyland..heart emoticon
There ain’t NUTHIN’ wrong with being proud of our achievements in our daily existence, grand or miniscule. It makes no matter the size of the prize. What matters is that it matters to YOU! Could be losing that final 10 pounds. Could be getting that job you have worked HARD to get. Could be helping another by just being there. The list goes on. There are 100s of things we do on a daily, weekly, monthly basis that bring us forward in life. It truly has no bearing on our age, gender, our country, our station in life. 10 year olds can achieve greatness. As can 90 year olds. All that matters is that we reach for our goals. That we fulfill our dreams By NEVER, EVER giving up. Or caving to those who say you can’t do a thing. For, if you believe you can, You CAN do that thing. Trust me! Pamela See More
