Visualize it: Close your eyes. Get in the zone, and focus solely on your wish – Nothing else! Another idea is to make a Vision Board. Have you heard of these? Cut out photos from magazines that represent your wish. Or, if you’re super creative and skilled, you could draw, draw, draw!
Believe it: Don’t let the face of doubt stare you down into a puddle of self-pity.
Don’t let the hand of negativity hold you down in the sinkhole of “I can’ts.”
Do it: Take action! If you think by sitting on your sofa – remote in one hand, popcorn in the other – is going to make your wish a reality…think again!
“Do the thing and you will have the power.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
(It’s as simple as that.)
New Day, New Dreams
Today’s a new day
for that baby step
Don’t even look back
just take a deep breath
Don’t listen to words
that may keep you still
Optimism is your friend
along with your will
Keep your dreams in view
not allowing them to stray
With fear on the sidelines
You Can Be Brave
Instead of your heart
wear strength on your sleeve
Stay focused with soul
and in Yourself, Believe!
So, did you make a wish?
If so, what are you going to do about it?

Poem from my book,
New Day, New Dreams
Have you wished to fly
in the big blue sky,
soaring with angels near
and feathered friends so dear?
Think how incredible to swim
in the ocean on a whim,
with a chummy dolphin
and the biggest grin
Imagine strolling in a meadow
with a butterfly show
or tiptoeing amongst the stars
to the music of guitars
Lend an ear to what I propose
Close your eyes, twinkle your nose
Cross your arms, blink three times
Twirl around, you’ll hear the chimes

(I thought a smile would be welcomed
to end the week. This is revised from
several years ago, and I’m wishing you a
fabulous Friday and weekend!)
This is an “oldie” but while wishing you a Happy Friday,
I thought I’d add some “autumn beauty” too! ♥
Happy Friday, Everyone! I’m grateful for every day, but I can’t deny how glad I am when Friday rolls around. Anyway, for some “end of week” smiles, I’m sharing just a few photos taken yesterday at the Marin Headlands with my daughter and our dog, Copper…It was real foggy and super windy, but we still had a fun time. Although, I think Copper had had enough of the wind. 🙂 Gorgeous views even in the fog, which adds mystery to the photo, I think..you’ll see the Golden Gate bridge is trying to push through and make itself known and the sky couldn’t have been bluer. The last photo is Copper and I making duck faces, while my daughter looks beautiful. 🙂
Wishing you all a Fabulous Friday and Wonderful Weekend ahead! Thanks for all your visits and a big Thanks to all my new followers, as well! ♥
Love and Blessings to you all, Lauren ♥
Copper (our lab) and I recently went on one of our “water tank” hikes. Though we’ve done this many times, I still take more pictures. How many photos can one have of the same location? Well, I guess many, if you try for new angles. It’s kind of like an addiction, but a healthy one. The hike is uphill from our house and we ended up with tall grass hugging us while walking on thin trails and all I could think about were ticks. Copper stays on flea and tick medication but once in awhile, they still manage to get on him.
Luckily, when we got home he was tick free and so was I! 🙂
I’m also including some flowers from our yard.
It’s coming back to life
now that Copper is getting a little older and less mischievous. 🙂

symbolic to Marin County and the highest peak in Marin Hills
Our grapevine, almost ready for tasting
Yellow Chrysanthemums to liven up the living room
Abutilon – I hadn’t heard of this before,
but I love the colors,
also known as Indian mallow and Velvetleaf
Beauty wrapped in pink
We have no idea what this is, as it moved in
before we did. 🙂
Of course, here’s Copper, my walking partner

I hope you’ve enjoyed this collection
and I wish you a wonderful weekend ahead.
HAPPY FRIDAY! ♥
In my last post, I mentioned that I’ve always loved taking photos. So I’m sharing some flowers for your Friday, though they are amateur. Currently, my only camera is my iPhone, which isn’t the best, but it works for me and is easy! 🙂 Along with the flora, I’ll add a little rhyming fun for this day and I hope you enjoy!
Today is great
for happy dancing and
jolly singing, too – ♫
not only for a Friday,
any day will surely do!
Wishing you all a Fabulous Friday
and thanks for stopping by! ♥
SOMETIMES LIFE’S HURDLES
ARE MAGNIFIED THROUGH WORRIES –
CARRY ON AND TRUDGE!
This is an oldie, but I thought to share again for some Friday encouragement.
May your day and weekend be filled with lots of fun and smiles!
This is the first weekend since the new year that I’ve been healthy,
so I’m truly smiling. 🙂
Sending hugs and blessings to you all!
