“It’s Never Too Late To Reinvent Yourself”.

Good Morning Sunshine!

Be excited because today is the day you get to start reinventing yourself.

Put on some Reiki, Zen, Piano, (whatever resonates with you) music, maybe something to evoke your spirit which will help you find your purpose.

Fix yourself a cup of tea.

Light a candle or burn your sage smudge stick while your tea is heating.

Open a window to help release negative energy from your home.

Find a quite, beautiful place to sit and listen to the music while you sip your tea. Maybe on your porch or outdoors so any negative energy can dissipate and you can absorb the beauty of nature.

Clear your mind and breathe (takes practice).

After this do a few stretching exercises to show your body some appreciation.

Grab a paper and pen/pencil/paint marker; something pretty to write on and with, maybe even one of your color book pages you can jot down thoughts along the edges.

Without thinking about your current circumstances; where you live, what you do, what you’ve done, your age, your health; write down your dream life; the career that will make you happy, where you will live, where you will travel, who you will be with, people who make you happy (known or not yet met), how you will dress, items that make you happy, activities that make you happy, how you carry yourself. Everything you can think of you can do. This is where you’ll start.

It is never too late to reinvent yourself and become the person you’ve always dreamed of or get back to that person that you once were.

Change starts from within and your thoughts become your reality.

When/if any negative, destructive, or self doubt creeps into your mind, go back to your page and doodle, draw, color, write, read and remind yourself what a STRONG, CONFIDENT, BEAUTIFUL WOMAN/MAN YOU ARE!

I believe in you and can’t wait to see you blossom through this new challenge in your life.

Be invigorated, enthusiastic and excited as you rediscover yourself.

And, just so you know, just writing this note to you is giving me the same incentive. Let’s do this together!!!!!!!! Have a terrific day!!!!!

Peace Love and Joy

Tea Time……

you time, we time, me time!

img_7150

I’ve been hit with another inspiring idea.

I’m not “all into” but getting “more into” taking time to meditate, unwind, think positive thoughts and all the benefits that come with taking time to “stop” and “be” in the moment.    Any moment, any time, for any length of time.

I find taking these moments to “pause” is beneficial in so many ways.  It can be life changing and has definitely improved how I’m living this life with which I’ve been blessed.   You may (or may not) know the sayings, “thoughts are things”, “change your thoughts, change your life”, etc.  I’ve found this to be so very true……how I think about things is reflected in how I live my life!   So I “think happy thoughts” as often as I can!

So many of us don’t think we have the time, or don’t take the time, to cherish a moment in time.   I was a busy mom raising three active sons in addition to working a full time job outside of the home.   Busy, busy, busy.   I rarely took the time to pause and appreciate the moments.   Now that I’m getting better at taking some me time, and making it quality me time, I find my life a little less hectic, problems a little less cumbersome, daily chores and errands a little less demanding.   Yes, it might be because I’m getting older and life changes as we age and gain more wisdom.   But, if I could turn back time, knowing then what I know now, I would have tried to hit that pause button more often and just reflect on a little blessing or two….even if only for a few seconds or minutes.     Grab all the good you can when you can.

And so comes to fruition my Tea Time Bundles.   I’m not sure exactly how the Tea time Bundles came to mind.   I just wanted to share my personal pause button with others, send some positive energy, ignite some positive thoughts and creative ideas, and encourage others to take some me time and we time.   Although I’ve never had an official daily set tea time, I do enjoy a cup of tea in the early evening before dinner or on the porch after dinner……my personal pause button……..a good time for me to take a breather and be in the moment. No worries about what was or what still needs to be done, just some time to sit quietly and clear my mind of clutter and actually see the world around me at that particular moment and listen to the quiet.

And so comes to fruition my Tea Time Bundles.   I’ve built them around my dream catchers and prisms.   Here’s what they are.

Tea cups!   I love them.   Some so delicate and beautiful, others bold and strong.   Each beautifully created.   I found this first batch on a recent road trip to Des Moines, IA. They are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!   I had so much fun finding the PERFECT cups with matching saucers to use for my bundles.   Found them at some of the shops I mentioned in my past road trip post here at Judy’s Treehouse.

And, if you are familiar with my prisms and dreamcatchers, from earlier posts here or at my shop, Judystreehouse.etsy.com, you may recall how I find them to be inspiring and uplifting.   If you don’t have one for yourself, you may want to consider filling your room with rainbows from the pretty prisms or catching good vibrations in the dreamcatcher web.   These make great gifts, too.

Then there are my notecards.   Handmade by me with prints of photos I’ve taken over the years; flowers I’ve grown, pics from around the farm, during harvest, etc.   I haven’t added these to my shop yet but I have a supply on hand and they’ve turned out very nice.    Unique, colorful and beautiful on the outside, blank on the inside so you can create and send your own thoughts and feelings.  I always like to have notecards on hand.   They also make a great gift or addition to a gift basket.     If you’re interested in more information on the note cards, please contact me.

With thoughts of meditation and relaxation in mind, my color book notecards have transpired. I’ve turned some of my photo print notecards into coloring book notecards.   Adult coloring is a new trend and very relaxing.   In my tea time bundle, you’ll get an original print notecard and its color book version.  Create your own unique piece of art by coloring the notecard similar to the original version or make it your own artistic style.   Every one of us has creativity lurking within.   And all things creatively made are beautiful works of art!   So color outside of the lines if that’s what you want to do, it’s okay!    Fun and relaxing outlet for your creativity and positive energy to emerge.…..just let it flow.
