I see you....

Just saw this on Elephant Journal and it really made me stop and think.  As I have re-evaluated my life this past year, I know that I've been guilty of looking at people, but never really seeing them. I'm learning to slow down and connect. Look people in the eyes as I ask them how they are today. Stop and listen with my whole being and just exist in the moment. Keeping my phone in my pocket and all of my attention focused on that person. I think we need to do more of this on a daily basis, until it becomes a part of who we are as a people. We need to turn off the phones, tablets, computers, and televisions. We need to appreciate the silence, the moments, the here and now, and engage in LIFE!

Your thoughts???

It's been a long time.....

Hello Friends!!

Not sure if anyone will read this or not, because quite honestly my blog fell right off the map way back in August of last year. There's a lot to the story as to why my blog went silent and I'm ready to share some of that with you, my real friends, who have stayed in contact with me on FB, Twitter, and emails.

I've decided that my blog will get a refreshed "look" and also will be more about my journey and what has brought me to where I am today. It will just be me writing and sharing....if you're interested and want to stop in and say "Hello" that's great. If you're not because my focus has steered away from review books, that's okay too! I understand, truly I do.

Within a week or so I hope to have the template in place and will be getting "real" with what has happened in my life over the past year and how things have changed.

I'm actually excited about blogging again, and quite honestly, I'm excited about the no pressure aspect of it by removing myself from "reviewing" books.

Looking forward to catching up with you all!!
