Holding On!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 29, 2012 by dianaswonderworks

 

What are you holding on to? Something occurred to me the other day. I have heard it before, but never really took it to heart. It is that, you can’t move forward without leaving the past (or present, whatever the case may be). I never realized how true this is and how it can impact your life. One thing I learned is that by letting go of the old, you clear room for the new. Your life is like a big closet, and it can hold a lot! But we fill those closets fast, believe it or not. Once that space is full, there is no more room, unless you clean it all out.

What I mean to say is that, if you want new clothes, when the opportunity to get rid of some old things, do not hesitate. Give it away, throw it away, lend it out. When you let go of all the old stuff, it will make room for new stuff. You will be surprised and amazed, how quickly new things will come into your life, when you are willing to let go of the old. The more new things you receive, the more happiness you have in receiving it, the more likely more new tings will come your way, and even more likely you will be to let go of things that you do not need anymore.It works for stuff, relationships, jobs, work, money or whatever you need to bring into your life! I am not recommending you give away your last shirt or pants, or even your last dollar. I am not saying you should be haphazard about how you live your life. I am saying, quit being afraid of letting go!

A new chapter in your life could be on the brink. You stand at a precipice and look over your life ahead of you, and sometimes the things we cling to are like an anchor. It keeps us rooted in the same place we have been for days, months or even years. If you want to bring about change in your life, you have to be willing to let go of those chains. it takes the  weight off your heart and the pull off of the tow, moving you forward into a brave new world. Have faith, all is not as it appears sometimes. It may seem like you are losing more and more, you feel like the world has turned against you. However, once you let go, you will be surprised to see all those things come back to you, bigger and better than ever!

For example.,. water will stagnate when no current is there. No movement, causes it to sour and become dead and lifeless. All life in that pool of water will eventually die as well. But, if you clear out the waterways to and from this body of water, before you can imagine it, life will return! New plants will grow, species will return and the water will become clear and healthy again. We are no different, we need growth and constant new creations to keep us happy and interested in this life. But, we must do the work, and be willing to let the old things fall away, return to a place in childhood. Return to a place where all is new and wondrous, where standing still is not some sense of false security. Go to a place where all things are of value, and be willing to share those things and move on to greater things!

Anyway, off my soap box I go. I haven’t got the winning ticket, just yet. But, it is close I am sure. I am ready to embrace a new chapter in my life! This time I am going to do it different. I want to see what it is like to be worry free when it comes to money, and further see what I will do with this opportunity when it is my turn! Wishing you lots of love and health, as always sending it to you and yours, have a great day, diana

Just Another Moment In Time!

Well hello! Been a few weeks, or minutes as I call them. Time really does pass us by. Thank you for reading and I am doing my best to get more scheduled, slowly things seem to be coming around. Been unemployed since December, just before Christmas actually! Anyway, I have not been hiking in a while, miss it dearly. I am thinking today I will be going on a small one. The weather here is not as cold and I need the fresh air! Been so busy dealing with unemployment, still waiting to get paid. Trying to get myself road ready again, find a new job, still keep up with laundry and so many other things. I am happy to report, that I feel great, and am positive this is going to be a great year for me.

Got a lot of ideas running around in my head for new art, and also trying to figure out a way to work for myself. I have been trying as much as I can to make my life the life I dream of everyday! It isn’t just about positive thinking, that is a real start, it is also about feeling it, knowing it and knowing I deserve it! It is hard work to undo all the negative mumbo-jumbo I was taught my whole life. Not to mention the constant Debbie Downers out there, more than willing to pop my bubble. So, at first it seems like a full time job, it does get easier, and I am finally getting to the point where it bothers me for a second or two and then I move on and dismiss it!

One thing I know for sure, is that I feel so much better. I have heard and read so much on manifestation and visualization, even the negative talk. My motto is simple, no one has to believe it, I choose to. If indeed it is just some hoax, it is fine with me, I still believe great things are on the way for me! Because I believe it, guess what I am happy! Anything that can make me this happy is well worth the work, and those who believe it isn’t have the right to believe what they choose. One thing I know for sure is, they are not as happy as I am. If they were, complaining Woodhull not be on their to do list. Hoping the new year has been a wonderful gift for you as well!

No big lottery wins as of today, but that will change in a minute! I am confident, and can’t wait to go on a long wished for and well deserved vacation! I am going to a great spa for a few weeks and then travel to some islands, first thing! Hiking volcanic mountains in Hawaii, and surrounding islands, bask in the sun, swim, learn to scuba dive, take tons of photos, paint, draw, and love everyone who crosses my path! This is the time of my life! I have not been this happy ever! For a while, I was remembering how I was finally happy like I used to be, then I realized I could be so much happier. So, every day I wake up and do my best to make this one happier than yesterday! Sending love to you and yours as always, diana

Another Minute To Go!

Well, been busy lately. Looking for work, trying to get in shape, catch up on projects, deal with unemployment(still up in the air), promote work as an artist, and dividing what time I have left for myself, family and friends, it has been super fun and super charged! Now, apparently, came in contact with a bug, seems like I am catching a cold. Oh well, flu season abounds,so time to hydrate and prevent it from taking hold. Making some tea now, and maybe a nap on the way! Want to work on a painting I started a few years ago, of course as usual, it will show up here when I get it done. However be patient, it is a big canvas, it could be a while!

Just a quick update on my friend Kim, she is recovering, however it will be a tough ride. She is paralyzed, and will have to have extensive therapy, and mental and emotional strength (the doctors have basically told her, she will not walk again)! Tough job for her and hard on her mother who must now take care of her and five children, For her it will take all her strength to keep herself focused and prove those doctors wrong

Went out twice yesterday for a hike, took pics as always. Feels so good to be able to take these long walks now, and know it does not cause me any discomfort. I am not working so money is tight, but there is a path down the street from me, so I can do that, just leg work. Fills two purposes for me, maybe three, no cost, fitness and my artistic urges too! So the pics on here to day are from that walk. Hope you enjoy them, it was a wonderful day.

Slowly, projects are getting done, and more seem to open up in front of me. But, it is good it keeps me focused and does not give me time to dwell on any negativity in my life. I am determined to get caught up. I am determined to make a lot of money and create the life I always wanted with ex’s, the difference now, is I won’t have to share it, lol. All for me! A new Year, a New Life and  new Way of living. I am eady for the goodthings I always dreamed of. I am ready to be all I can be and am working very hard on all levels to accomplish it. Fixing my body, my thoughts, my spirit, my finances, my social and family obligations. I do hope all that know me will be patient while I work extra hard and making it all happen. Those who really love me will want me to have all I want, and in return I hope to help them get all they want.

Okay, the last of my updates for today, are lottery, and as of today, The check has not arrived. But it is in the mail I am sure of it. I am very excited and energized, and good thing too. I have a lot to do! Sending you my love as always, to you and all you love as well. Hoping this is a glorious year for you too, diana

Giving Hope For A New Year!.

Giving Hope For A New Year!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on January 1, 2012 by dianaswonderworks

 

Well, for all of you, hoping you had a wonderful New Years Eve! Hoping this new yer brings all the beauty, success and love you seek. For those of you who don’t know, I am an artist, trying to make my way in life, with my art. I recently lost my job, an opportunity to make my life the life I want now waits for me. I also, an\m new to the area, where I am beginning this new phase in my life. A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting a very nice woman, with five children. She is a single Mom, and the father is on the west coast. He is not helping with these children, obviously in a day to day way. I honestly don’t know his role at this time. I have been too busy trying to help her get focused and stay true to her dreams. I would rather her not dwell on things that will only bring her sadness or resentment.

Anyway, through our talks she was finally making the movement forward to get her life on track. She was working, lost her job, not much of a loss, since she was not getting a head anyway. She had made the decision to move. As of January first, she was going to stay with her mother in Maine, so she could save some money and get back on her feet. So far, so good. Yesterday (December 31, 2011), was her last day to move, and she left for Maine to make the last of her runs. It was cold, and the roads were covered in black ice. I am uncertain of the details just yet. She lost control of the vehicle and it through her from the vehicle, causing (so far as I know) two broken vertebrae. I will be sure to update you on any information as I get it. To say the least, she will not be working anytime soon. Five children is a lot of groceries and bills.

I made a decision last night to do all I could to help her and her family. She is lucky to be alive, and I do not want pity for her. I just want to help her get back on her feet, those children need her. My hope is to send you an opportunity to help. I am starting a new site today on Facebook. It is called Art For A Dollar$ (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Art-For-A-Dollar), it will be a page, to go and join a dollar raffle to win a piece of art (prints), by the artists who make them. As a side note, we were going to sell prints as well, for those who just wanted to purchase. From these purchases, my associate and I have agreed to give 50% of all direst sales profits, to Kim and her family. We want to help her and her family get through this tough time, and heal, so their futures can be brighter than ever. Starting the new year with joy would make a huge difference for them. We have a chance to take a tragic moment, and turn it into something glorious. I want to be part of that. I am hoping you do to.

Please look us up on Facebook, or send me a message here. Be happy to take donations, or make arrangements to sell you some artwork, to make this a reality for the whole family. Please come check us out, watch for any new updates. I will be sure to mention Kim in the title, so it is easy to spot. Haven’t checked my lottery today, so not sure of that outcome. It would be such a blessing to make my dreams come true as well. Keeping you posted, sending love to you and all you love for a new year, love diana
