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

Manifesting My Life!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 27, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

This week has brought about some really eye opening thoughts and feelings for me. I apologize for being away, I needed this time to get myself together. So much has happened to me in my life, and much of it wasn’t good. To be fair, this is not about bad situations, it is about rising above them, climbing past the, and finding myself in a world of dreams and happiness! It has been difficult at times to stay in a positive place, and I haven’y always succeeded, but I do persevere. This has been one of those times in my life. Slowly though, like some turning my head gently to the side, so I can see clearly, I begin to see my future.

Today, I woke up realizing, that all will be well, and all will be better than I can even imagine. Once again, I am refocusing on all my dreams. Slowly things have begun to change. I wanted a new car, I am getting it very soon, in the next day or so., It isn’t some show room new car, it is new to me and the beginning of a newer car to come. I wanted a break from work, a mini vacation, and got it by ending up in an E.R. My boss got mad that I needed a couple of days to re cooperate, and took me off the schedule for a week. Not the way I imagined it, lol, but arrived non the less. So now I am working on bringing money my way, and the wish should arrive soon! Maybe in the form of a big lottery check! That would be great!

All and all, life is in a good place, so many changes on the way, and in my heart I know they will all be good ones. My dreams manifesting themselves into my reality. This is what I dream for and wake for everyday. The potential, to bring magic into my life, and experience everything I always wanted. I smile at the thought of my new cars, new homes, vacations, travel, art galleries, art studios, and all the things I can do to give back. I want to help children with illness, use my art to cheer them and sell my art to heal them! I want to spend my money and time to help clean up the planet, especially for the oceans and all the sea life, that is depending on us to survive! I fill myself with these thoughts for the day, and wish for the ability to do it all and more!

So, as of yet, my lottery check is not here. But, I am sure it is on it’s way to me, now even as I type this. I know that all the worries I have are silly and a waste of time. he time serves me better, by realizing it is only in this minute, that things seem of course, that tomorrow or the next minute all will be at peace again. I have to believe it, wish it, envision it, taste it and feel it! Once I do, it is already here! Wishing you all the best for this holiday season and even more now at the end of this year, and the brink of a new year. The year of plenty, and the year of all possibilities, that is what I am claiming for me! So, whether I am working or not, whether I am at home or not. On this new year I am making a wish for m=not one or even two, I am wishing for all my dreams to come true, I also send that same wish for you and anyone else that needs it.

Sending my love to you and yours, as always, diana

Snow For Christmas!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on December 23, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, today was a wonder to behold. Here in New Hampshire we woke up to snow! Not that the weather wasn’t predicted,  but strange when you consider the weather yesterday. All day yesterday, it was like spring outside. The sun was out, bright and clear, the temperatures were mild. It really reminded me of the weather when I first arrived here in Late March. A light jacket is all you needed to enjoy the day. Then Some time over night the temperature dropped and so did the snow. Already with daylight, and the sun shining in the sky, the snow is starting to melt. But, the vision of that beautiful snow, unmarred by people, first thing in the morning, brings a smile to my face. Already it is feeling more like Christmas!

Okay, so now some quick updates, I am sure you are aware that I am an artist. If not, you will be familiar with that idea now. So,, for those of you who do follow me and my art, I do have a new painting to share with you. This is a painting I finished about a month ago. Maybe two now, just before I moved to my new address, it is a giraffe, felt in the mood to see Africa, SO, I decided to create a little of it for myself. If you are interested in any way to purchase it, or to see the prices, please follow the links enclosed to go to one of my shops or Facebook to contact me. I will be sharing a couple more in the next couple of days, as well as some photos of a few more hiking pictures, to help those of you not familiar with New Hampshire to see the beauty surrounding us here! Hope you enjoy them all.

It seems, one prayer of mine has been answered and I will be driving a new car. Not new, as in off the showroom floor, but new as in, new to me. This is a great relief off of my mind for sure. So, Merry Christmas to me, and to the givers of this wonderful gift, and to you as well and those you love. I hope you  are having a wonderful Holiday Season, no matter, what holiday you celebrate, if any. No matter, wishing you lots of happiness, and blessings of every kind.

Now, also a quick update on the lottery horizon. Just to say, that my dream of winning the lottery this year, hes not come to pass, just yet. I am confident that one day soon, the message on here will be a joyous one. I can’t wait! Sending you lots of love, for yourself and all those you care about. Wishing you end this year with a smile and a life full. Full of blessings, love, joy, peace and happiness for all! Enough for today, and see you soon, diana

Life In The Making!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

 

Well, it has been a little bit. Been so busy, winter will be here soon and I don’t have heat. Forget starving artist, how about freezing artist. Looking all over for a way to get heat, looking for a second job, trying to sell art, looking for an apartment that includes heat (that I can afford), one thing after another. So, at the end of last week, I put my art up in the local library, was hoping to get some sales out of it. However, so far no calls or offers on my work or any calls on commissioned work either, It has been difficult, it seems that things are still moving a head, but at a snail’s pace. It has made it quite difficult some days to stay optimistic, and some days I have failed at that task. So much pressure and so little time, and the constant doors slamming in my face. But, one thing I know for sure, something will happen, all for the good, and each slammed door is getting me closer to the one that will open for me.

Now, as you can well imagine, promoting online has had its hurdles as well, mostly time for it, and really not having my computer up and functioning. This is another thing I am trying to get together again, but having a roof with heat takes priority for now. But, I do miss the sales from online, every dollar helps, and I am missing those dollars for sure! I have been dabbling in some crafts as well, anything I can do to make a buck. The more I do, the more I increase the odds of sales, however, the more I do the less time I have for all the other things I do, like my blog. I really do miss having time to share things with you, and I do love to hear back from you as well. So, just so you know what is all on my plate, I am still working to make the illustrations for my children’s book, I am making rag rugs, rag baskets, wash cloths, painting, drawing, working a full time job, looking for a second income, or a better one so I can survive,looking for a place to live, and trying my best to keep up with all my shops and sites online.

Oh, and I have something to say! Not sure how many of you are familiar with Artfire. I had a shop on there until very recently. It seems they changed their policy, and if you do not pay a monthly fee to have a shop, they deleted you all together, well the shop, and all you can be on for without paying is a buyer.  I thought that was really a bad move. I am not sure, how others did, but I had one sale in the two years I was on there, and that was made by a friend of mine, trying to help me out. I was not going to continue to pay them, when I was not making any money on the site at all. I can only hope, for their sake, that others are not having the same problem as me, It could be hard for them to pay as well. In the end, Artfire may suffer from being hasty and greedy, in an environment where, so many people are like me. Scrambling just to eat and stay warm, doing what they can to make ends meet. Not in a position to throw out money, when there is not enough coming in. Just food for thought.

I am finally playing the lottery again, no big wins, but I am hopeful and more confident than ever, that my day is coming fast. Hoping you are having a happy and safe weekend. Sending my love to you and yours as always, diana

Whatever The Weather We Will Be Together!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 10, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Today is D-day for me! My daughter is going to come and visit me, I am so beyond excited! So much to do. I dropped off some art at the frame shop. It will be ready later today! I cannot wait, plus that means all I have to do is take some pictures and them new stuff to show you and new stuff for the store! Hooray! The weather outside is frightful (bet you’ve heard that before), but as long as she is careful, I will be seeing her nice and early in the morning. I just can’t wait!

Got the bills paid, not much left to save for the move, but hoping that will all change soon. New roomie moving in next week and yard sales on the horizon. Save, save, save! Lots to do before the big move. Would love to trade some art for a better running car, not so thrilled about taking her up there, she is not very young and I think she is tired. Going uphill takes the wind out of her sails! Since, I am not moving to the plains (more hill country), this could be rough on her. So, I keep wishing and praying that something will break loose. Winning the lottery could really hep! I am still waiting. News is the check is in the mail. Seeing as it is God promising, who do you complain to, when there are delays! Big smile for all of you who just freaked a little, I am a silly girl and will remain so. He knows I am joking around, not about receiving the money I am not, just the part about the check being in the mail. It will arrive at the best time possible, for sure!

Picked up my numbers for the weekend, ready to win. It would be so wonderful to have the money to spend with my daughter here! I am happy no matter what, it has been a while since I have been able to spoil my girls, and I look forward to that day again, plus spoiling my grand-babies! I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed! You do the same!

Quick note, I have a couple of friends, whose husbands a really ill right now. Would love it, if you could send some love and good wishes their way. I know they would appreciate it too! Both are wonderful women, and their husbands are really great guys. It seems age and illness are getting the better of both of them. It would be really nice if they could stick around a while longer.

So the weather man is apparently calling for rain (so I hear, need to watch the forecast to be sure). I am hoping whatever may come is gentle, so my sweetheart can make it safely to my door. On the other hand, I do know she would be thrilled to see snow again. Keeping my fingers crossed for the best of both scenarios. No matter what seeing the smile on her face, is all I dream of! In no time at all, it will be the reunion with my other daughter, that makes it a winning year, full of love and life and beauty! Can’t beat that with a stick! Hoping you are having a lovely day, sending joy and love to you as always, diana
