Favorite things

For the first time in my life I have this special and meaningful space to retreat to whenever I need a moment. Each time I enter this space I get a wave of calm and joy; I even love the scent. There is an energy in this room that lingers, positive and filled with peace. Whenever I leave I am filled with gratitude.


This has been a week filled with challenges, discoveries and an abundance of joy. I have been challenged with my perceptions and views of the world. I have discovered it’s time to see the world with new eyes, to change what holds me down. I have had the opportunity to spend time with a dear friend. I have become aware of time and memories I have lost. I am  determined to hunt for the buried treasures of my own mind.

It’s fascinating and exhilarating to see how starting one dig is uncovering how large this excavation truly is.
