We all have memories that we wish we didn’t remember!
But, what about the good ones?  Are you able to recall these, and use them to soften and heal from the others?  Are there places where you feel that forgiveness is “not deserved”.  I have memories like this in my life, and fortunately, I’ve forgiven most.

What about the sad memories of a beloved family, friend, or a pet who has died?  I have memories like this in my life.  The power of Love heals, where the passing of time can seem endless and hard.

What do you recall, in your memory, today?  We’ve all heard this quote:  “Yesterday is past, tomorrow is but a dream, today is a gift, and that’s why it’s called, THE PRESENT”.  My wish for you is that you decide to let go, or lose the grip of even one “bad or sad” memory, and to begin the journey of healing it today, with forgiveness and love.

Namaste’, sharon




We are great in our self doubt.. whether we wish to admit it or not.
For that is what worry IS
Can I Really be a Good Person, Good Parent, Good Spouse??
Can I Really do this Job?

Worse.. what if I can’t??

Last couple days.. been beating myself up over “What If’s” in a big way.. not sure why some days those What If’s seem sooo Much bigger than reality.. but they Do have their days..LOL

Well all do it 🙂 and been reading a couple friends Blogs that let me know.. This week has been a hard one on Many

“It’s so funny how like minds connect at the “right” times….so many times I have giggled over the synchronicity, I just love it!” Sharon Gilbertson

My FB feed is full of these moments.. either everyone is hurting and posting I need this feel better Post… Share 🙂

or everyone is posting jokes.. sometimes a bit of both

Next time the worlds energies Have you thinking “What the Hell?”

Arise from the flames of your Tortured ego.. and Notice..
Know your not alone… see the connections all around you

Then go outside feel the “Cleansing energies of the rain” the great “You are alive” energies of the Sun.. or the “wondrous Imagination inspiring energies” of the Moon and the Stars

Allow your mind to just take it in and let your “fires for Life” burn away the worries.. :))

Tonight I thank the Cleansing Rain.. and maybe tomorrow I’ll have to Thank againnn 😉
That to is ok..
soon I’ll just do it to energize my Fire to NEW HEIGHTS

As we all can… When we remember ;))

Thank you Sharon.. for writing what I am thinking far more eloquently than I ever could :))

INSANITY! #+$=@^(~?!&%

“Have I gone mad?” the Mad Hatter
“I’m afraid so.  You’re entirely bonkers.  But, I’ll tell you a secret.  All the best people are.” Alice, in Alice In Wonderland
Insanity… doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results.  Albert Einstein
“Insanity is hereditary, you get it from your kids.”  Sam Levenson
“Insanity is for me, super sanity.  The normal is psychotic.  Normal means lack of imagination, lack of creativity.”  Jean Dubuffet
“Insanity runs in my family.  It practically gallops.”  Cary Grant
World English Dictionary:  insanity 

1. relatively permanent disorder of the mind; state or condition of being insane  2. law  a defect of reason as a result of mental illness, such that a defendant does not know what he or she is doing or that it is wrong  3. utter folly; stupidity

How about you?

insanity“Insanity” hasn’t been something I’ve really cared to ponder, well, not until recently.  I had a very emotional epiphany, on a hot August day, in 2011.  That day, I stepped out of “my zone” long enough to see how I was caught up in an energetic, albeit sincere, hamster-wheel-dance.  My epiphany occurred when I was in the middle of a month-long time of solitude; my husband was out-of-town.  There was a lot of time that I could sit quietly to meditate, and to reflect.  On that particular day I just stopped, as a light seemed to flicker on and off, and then burned brightly in my brain:  “Hey, bird brain, has this road, most travelled,  ever really worked?”, “Has Wile E. Coyote ever caught the Roadrunner?” 7395256948_e355c85bc3_b

Of course, the answer was no.  I was caught up in the “activity of busy-ness” and that had always been my reward.  I was doing the same thing over, and over again, fully expecting a different outcome!

The word “insanity” is scary, and the thought of being insane makes most of us uncomfortable.  So, we make light of it with funny quotes, and jokingly say how we love our insanity.  When, in fact, the reality of insanity is downright scary.  I never thought that Alzheimer’s (dementia) would knock on our family door, but it has.  My wonderful mother has Alzheimer’s, her memory retention has gone, and her condition is progressing rapidly now.

Of course, it’s difficult for me, or my family, to find humor within my Mother’s situation.  Although, we all laughed heartily when Mom got confused and started to crawl into bed with my husband, and not Dad.  She laughed, too.

I continue to think that it’s healthy to make light of things, to laugh at ourselves, and of course let our “silliness” out while we walk, run, and sometimes stumble through life.  I’ve just decided that I don’t want to “kid” myself anymore, I’m craving the truth behind my actions.  Without a clear vision, I’ll simply turn my back on the many opportunities to learn, to grow, and to “take the road less traveled”.

How about you?

Love, sharon

Silliness is Good for the Soul

Do you act silly?  Do you know anyone who acts silly?  Silly is the BEST!  Let that kid out, relax and play with life and the people around you, have fun.  When’s the last time you did something silly???  I usually do at least one silly little thing every day, even if it’s making a goofy face in the mirror when I wake up to my  impromptu-hair-do.  My kids expect it, my grandkids call me epic!   If you haven’t already, lighten up, have fun with your life and letting your inner kid out doesn’t cost you a dime!  Love! Sharon
