My Home is a Peaceful Haven

I was so inspired by the "Lovely Lorraine's" post on Paperbird appropriately tittled "Embrace The Day"

she wrote of the feeling of being behind even before the day has started.

WOW this spoke to me ever so loudly, I too have felt like I have been juggling, all very good things - but not really a sense of approval to slow down.

I had a really great response to my last post, so many ladies have emailed me their affirmations and positive feedback, one that stood out to me from

Caryn Lynn from Art and the Creative Spirit

she wrote about repeating "I love and Adore Myself" and every time she said it - it made her smile even more:::: and then leads us through her strength of true acceptance and self love!

It's a great way to start the day- to meditate on a positive affirmation, if I am at a loss for

one I visit Louise Hay -

this is where I found "My home is a Peaceful Haven"

and it is!!

I love and adore myself

I stumbled upon this fantastic mirror on my recent trip to Healdsburg(Northern Calif)
It literally spoke to my soul, I felt like I had found such a happy place deep inside.
I don't think I tell myself this often enough
(it's even more engaging if you look yourself directly in the eye when you say it)
This soul speaking mirror was perfecly placed in the ladies room in Cafe Gratitude
An amazing cafe where upon ordering you are invited to share what you are grateful for, the waitress literally asks you and yes it transforms your day.
How simple - just like the mirror, I can propell myself to my happy place.
OH and by the way the food is 100% organic and 100% delicious
Taken from the menu:
We select the finest organic ingredients to honor the earth and ourselves, as we are one and the same. We support local farmers, sustainable agriculture, and environmentally-friendly products. Our food is prepared with love. We invite you to step inside and enjoy being someone who chooses: loving your life, adoring yourself, accepting the world, being generous and grateful every day, and experiencing being provided for. Have fun and enjoy being nourished.
