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

Willard Mountain View

Well, today I am posting a new painting I did inspired by a hike to Willard Mountain in New Hampshire. It was a beautiful day and my first real hike to an actual peak. It was tough, it really showed me how out of shape I really was and still am. But, it was a moment I will never forget, something I never dreamed I would do! With much struggle and some real effort I did make it to the top, and even got coaxed into going to the edge of the cliff. I will never forget that day!

On our way to the top I saw a tree. It was a funny tree. When I first saw it, from the angle I was at it looked like it had a nose. Once I started walking around it, I realized it had a crooked branch sticking out of it, and from the side you could not see it, it just looked like a big nose. I was so inspired that I decided to paint a picture of that tree, to remember my trip there. The picture of the painting is the picture on here today, and once I get my PC back and up I will put it up with the painting so you can see them together. For now, you will have to just imagine the tree I saw that day. The painting is more reflective of a Van Gogh style painting so it will not reflect the actual picture.

Okay, so far I don’t have my lottery check, still waiting! I did look for work today and found one I felt was promising. Last Friday, I had a black out and ended up in the ER. Rough night, was given time off of work and my boss was not happy. She took me off the schedule immediately and as of today has not put me back on it again. Times sure have changed. The days of people being empathetic and kind or concerned seems to be rare anymore. I was shocked to say the least. So, now I have to make a new plan and create a new income! As always I wait for my art to start selling and for other financial opportunities to come my way (looking of course).

Today, is a day to draw, and devise a plan for tomorrow. Part one will be going to the hospital to check on my paperwork and see if I qualify for assistance with the bill. Also, hoping to make a run for the unemployment office as well to see if I can salvage some kind of an income from there as well. Hopefully with some good luck in my favor the job I applied for today will call me and hire me. Mostly, it would be great if they are good folks to work for. It would be a nice change of pace, and I can only hope that since they are in the business of healthcare, that they have more compassion then my last few employers!

Sending my love to you and yours as always, hope you had a great holiday, whichever you celebrate, and if you don’t I still hope you enjoyed the season. We finally are reaching the dawning of a new year. I for one am very excited to see what it will bring! Lots of love to you, diana

Back To Beginnings!

Having a great day! Just got in from another sunset hike. No mountains to climb today, just mountains to photograph! Anyway, we went off to the White River Trail, in or around Ossippee, New Hampshire. We had a wonderful time, lots of really get stop offs from the trail to take photos, from many angles of the mountains. It was a perfect day in so many respects, the sky was generally clear a few patchy clouds, great for picking up some beautiful colors for the sunset. The temperature was in the forties, with only a hint of a breeze. So very comfortable to hike in, the ground in most areas was really dry and in some spots even frozen. Though there were a few spots, where the ground was wet and soggy, these areas were easy to get around or side step.

Wondering through the trees, and watching the sky change all around me was memorizing, I was walking along, feeling overwhelmed, by the colors of the sky and the lake, the more I walked the more at peace I felt. The one thing I got from this day, was a reassuring calm, brought on by the fact that my life in so many ways, has traveled around full circle. The last time I was this at peace with who I am and where I was going was before I head out to start my life in Florida. Just a teenager at the time, but spending all my free time, hiking through trails in the woods, talking to my friends, enjoying nature and the universe around me. Always aware the I was so small and insignificant, but at the same time the opposite, so important and necessary to the whole picture! I feel filled with awe and peace, joy and contentment, love and wonder, and a surety that I am exactly where I am meant to be, right now.

So many new ideas, and so many old ones, all merging and converging into a hazy, but definite picture. From where I sit, it is looking good too! I feel like, I am waking from a long dream, some of it glorious, and some of it treacherous, but all of it brought me right back to the beginning. A little older, definitely wiser and happier than ever! Sending you and your families all kinds of love and joy for this special holiday season this year. Please do enjoy the pictures from today’s  hike. Wishing you all the best. Love….diana

PS. Haven’t got that winning lottery ticket just yet, but keep your eyes peeled, you will hear from me soon with the good news!
