Happy Friday 🍂🍃

Made by yours truly!

We are so boxed in by limitations that are “just the way it is” or “that’s how it’s always been”. Some kind of nonsense fuckary if you ask me!

But who’s asking me?? 😂😂🤷🏼‍♀️

Let’s love, live, and learn! This life is our only chance!

With Love and Light,

Join Me For Coffee?

I would tell you I heard an old song today, 3 Doors Down: When I’m Gone. I’d tell you about the horrendous days I survived during my childhood. I’d probably share the silliness my sister and I got ourselves laughing at, for no reason.

I would tell you reality hit me, hard! I wore my hair down today. I wanted to feel pretty; so, I washed, dried, and straightened it. As I sit here, I look and see tints of silver!! 😳😳 I have no words.

If we were meeting for coffee, I’d tell you about my healing through my grief journey. We all experience grief; some of it just hits harder. I ordered a breathless photo, 18×24 in size, to hang in my room. It’s sudtle enough where I know the value behind it.

I would probably share the joy and somber feeling of my area. The heat has passed. It’s Autumn; which fills me with all sorts of thoughts and feelings.

If we met for coffee, I’d probably ask how you are, first.. Because, I don’t talk about myself unless you’ve asked. I’d probably hug you, too; I’m a hug person. I would certainly order a mocha cappachino. I’ve discovered my obsession with them, recently!

I would want to hear all about your week. I’d ask you a lot your family and job. I would want to know if there’s anything troubling you; because, in that friend who’d genuinely care.

For now, though.. My dreams of coffee dates are on hold. I must get my kids now that school is dismissing.

I hope you take the time to have coffee with someone this week. Time is the most precious gift.

With Love and Light,

Tug of War

The tougher this gets,

The less my lungs can breathe..

The less my heart can take,

The harder life throws me around,

The harder it is to smile.

Always landing so far from peace.

Always in tears, weakened with grief,

Unable to find a way out.

Unable to escape the brutality..

Destroying the very fibers of

my being,

The parts of me that once felt life.

The harder I hold on..

The harder it is to hold on…

My soul is struggling so much right now…

And I’m sure you never knew..

But, I am.

Sincerely,

Nova

Why I Love the USA

There are a few important reasons; but, there’s one reason in particular, right now.

After a few years of volunteering to clean up polluted water, a group of guys shifted to sonar and diving.

Their skills and experience lead to closure for so many families. They, selflessly, gave time and resources to bring healing and answers. Recently, this team had a HUGE break in a case, which speaks volumes.

Whether inspired by Adventures With Purpose, or some self conviction, other Americans are saying ” We are going to do something. We are taking on the burden of searching and digging!”, exhausting themselves to find missing individuals.

The bigger picture? We’re not complacent! We are gathering teams, organizing searches, spending irreversible time for a greater good, looking out for one another.

America people are looking out for one another, despite what law enforcement and the professionals have contributed.

This labor of love shows a new change in American Society. In acts of kindness, lives are changed in unspeakable ways.

That’s what makes my heart proud ❤️

Keep Growing & Glowing Americans! WE ARE the people! We should be looking out for one another!

With Love and Light,

Incase You Didn’t Know: Love

Baby I’m crazy about ya!!

Haha! Sorry I couldn’t resist!

All jokes aside, incase you didn’t know:

  1. You are loved.
  2. You are worthy of love.
  3. You can know and feel love by giving it to yourself.
  4. You are allowed to grieve the loss of a loved one.
  5. You are capable of loving.
  6. You deserve so much more love then you think you do!
  7. You are allowed to love someone from a distance.
  8. You have no idea how much love people truly have for you.

I believe all of these things to be truths for you. I know some, if not all, may have a different opinion. This is why I wanted to take a few minutes and remind you. Don’t believe everything you believe.

Have a wonderful evening, afternoon, morning!

Love and Light,

My Mental Health Journey: Dear Love

Who knew the day I met you, you’d come to mean so much. Now I have to spend more time missing you; than the amount of time I’ve known you.

It’s not fair.

I know you’d shrug and say, “Life’s not fair.”

I cried for you today. I saw a picture; your precious face.. And I died again. I listen to songs and struggle to keep myself together.. for the measly two and a half or three minutes.. To reach the ending.

Oh love, I miss you so much. I know you’re here, though. I feel you in the warm gust of sudden afternoon breeze. I see you in the most glorious clouds. I see you in feathers and other ways.

God made my heart love you; no matter what we’ve been through. I think we both knew it. Something God has in store for me, kept me from you. Maybe it’s knowing your babies now could use a little female guidance. Obviously, I’d never take the place of their mom; but, I do cherish them all.. As if life has brought them to me.. To love.

As my tears flood my eyes, I miss you with every piece of I am. I’m so thankful to have met you, loved you, and now miss you. Lead me and watch over me.

My heart will be yours always!

Calling All Hidden Children

It’s safe to come out now.

Your present life is more than involuntary pain.

You can let go of “existing”. You can live!

You can release that which makes you angry.

You are special and beautiful and human, kind, and loved.

There’s a child in all of us. That child is pure and authentic. That child was born with an open heart, no judgement, and held no hate.

Unrealistic or not, we need to reconnect with those children. We need to embrace them; heal those beautiful souls.

This can start next week, or right now. The important thing to remember is you deserve it.

Happy Sunday!

With Love and Light,

Nova Namastè

When I think About

Thomas Kinkade was the artist of light! He mastered the perfect quantity of hues that literally shines in dim light.

Several years ago, I was so lucky to visit one of his galleries. It was stupendous! He had quite a display; with each room capable of dimming lights! When I watched, it was as if images came to life.

Please, take a look for yourself! 🎨🖼️

Thomas Kinkade Gallery & Gifts

What made me think about him, was the Queen’s passing. For as long as I’ve enjoyed Mr Kinkade’s work, I’ve particularly taken to his paintings of Edinburg! It was his art that made me fall in love with the area!

There’s also a wonderful movie about his life. I encourage you to watch it, as well!

It’s coming to Tubi TV on September 30!

Here’s a preview to check out 🙂

As nature begins to embrace the lushish palette, I remember this extraordinary soul, who did nothing short but extend light beyond his work.

Life never fails to show me the synchronization of my events. It never fails to show me it’s unimaginable and uncomprehensive size. Everything is linked to something else. Quite an extraordinary painting of its own.

Grateful Heart

Today’s been quite busy, my friends! I hadn’t forgotten about you, though! As the day went on, life got crazy. I was peopling.. In cars.. mingling in the general public!

Yup!! It’s true!

But, let me focus on the good and right things that happened, today.

  • I FINALLY cleaned out the junk on my 3rd row of seats in my car!! It just feels so much better!! I had gardening fencing and the grass weed stuff.. summer beach sand toys.. umbrellas! Haha! Seriously, something for every season.
  • My kids and I went to our favorite restaurant! They were well behaved. The food was amazing. The place wasn’t overly crowded. I treated my little helpers; they worked so hard on the cleaning.
  • I was able to talk to this super sweet and funny guy! I’ve known him for years now; but, I never took the time to really get to know him. I’m thankful I am now!
  • Later this afternoon, as my kids and I walked the slight incline to the playground, the warm sun shined on the colorful leaves! Everything in those 15 seconds was magical!
  • My love of photography allows me to truly see the world! Photographs are forever; and, as they should be! I created this one today.

Today, life reminded me of a quote:

Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful!

Hope you’ve had a fantastic week; and, always, remember you are loved!

Dedicated to my dear friend who is no longer suffering, here on Earth💔💚
