All you need is love.............

Not doctored in any way. The skies have been gray the past couple of days but I did catch one beautiful sunset last weekend.
There is a big "slide" of snow from the roof that hasn't dropped off the overhang yet. When it warmed up to 29, one day last week, it started this wonderful drip.
Ok, it's been almost six weeks, as of this Wednesday. My original post on Temporal Tapping was dated, November 11, 2009.

Here are my new nails, after a manicure with Tim. Tim who is the human counterpart of Louie, my cat. Every other word out of Tim's mouth is "stupid". We attribute that word to a lot of what Louie, the orange tabby WOULD say if he could say.
I certainly won't get any jobs as a hand model BUT I am very pleased. VERY PLEASED.
Those of you that know me in real life know that I rarely wore rings, if ever. I seldom put my hands in the limelight and some of you lovingly and patiently suggested that I take my fingers out of my mouth.
Well, I hope that those days are over. The Temporal Tapping is working. Tim actually had to file down some of them to even up the length. I think I have had colored nail polish on my nails three times in my life. Two of them involved fake nails.

Milestones................over coming a behavior that was unhealthy for me and not successfully doing what I thought it was doing, for me. What may have started out as a response to anxiety developed into a life long habit. A simple, very simple technique changed that behavior into something positive.
DOES THIS BLOW YOU AWAY? IT DOES ME! I mean, come on.......this didn't involve will power, difficult in any way and I'm on the road to not ever needing this negative behavior again?
So, there it is. I'll let you know how the Diet soda temporal tapping's goes. I really love my Diet Coke. I'm just not sure Diet Coke loves me back, you know?

Getting ready, getting packed up. The kids called this weekend all excited talking about meal cooking, what they were bringing, games to be packed, DVDs to bring, etc. It's so nice to know that they are as excited about this trip as we are. It makes it special.

Again, I hope that during this holiday season, no matter what you are celebrating or not celebrating that you take the time to create. The more you create the more you bring your physical self and your soul into balance. I hope that you find joy and peacefulness in your daily routine and I hope that whether you surround yourself with family or friends that you know that you are loved. Because the person that loves you the most should be yourself. That love will radiate out of you to all you meet.

:)Bea Go on, you know what to do........ :)

P.S. Still getting used to having nails. Dropped my coffee all over Tim's floor, have stabbed myself in the eye while trying to rub said eye, afraid to open a soda can pop top.....can't pick up anything it seems. And, you know modeling paste gets under the nails, what a pain!

  2. JULIET! Good, you found me. I changed to a domain name and Blogger was supposed to make it easy to find me. Not, the case. BUT, I'm glad you did and here you are. :)Bea

  3. I love your words as they trickle like a dripping icicle from the window's edge outside the window. I am working smaller but with quiet moments I can still make my sacred marks for myself and others. The cards are all different and yet the theme for Joy runs through them as I dropped them into the mail box. I love these simple re-connections through snail mail to people I miss seeing daily in my life. I am hoping they will know that I am they still have a place in my heart. I too am looking forward to being with the little ones who hold my heart captive with their tiny hands and smiling eyes. Be safe and enjoy living in the moment...time is all we really have to give to one another. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen

  5. Beautiful hands! I stopped chewing on mine years ago and while I like the actual nails, they are a pain sometimes.
    Diet coke - I love it also, but had to give it up except maybe once a month or something like that. It wasn't hard,...really it wasn't.

    have a wonderful holiday - enjoy the family.

  6. The nails are beautiful and, though I don't chew them, mine are soft and were growing out when I was religiously taking calcium this past year--I've been less consistent since the move.

    I forgot to tell you yesterday how beautiful your shot of the hibiscus against the snow is. Really beautiful! I missed the temporal tapping entry. Where is that?

    Have a wonderful time in the sun...and look for your package when you return. xx00

  7. Mary Helen, I am so glad you are taking it easy and just being in the moment. How wonderful that your family and friends receive a hand written note from you. In this day and age it is very special but of course, it's something that someone special like you would do. :)Bea

  9. Thanks Mim for the support. I'm hoping that giving up the Diet sodas will be just that easy. Then on to some eating behaviors that aren't good for me. :)Bea

  10. Thanks D. Mine seem to be healthy and hard so that makes me pleased. Of course, I take a ton of vitamins. My header shot is actually from a year ago but it's one of my favorite photos for winter. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you! :)Bea

  13. Hi, I found your blog while googling Temporal Tapping. I'm so glad it is working for you. You inspire me to try it. Can you tell me the exact words you use?

  15. Teresa, it's a trial and error type of positive statement. You have to watch your behavior and see if the message is doing what you want it to do. My first wording for my nails was I didn't need to bite my nails anymore. That didn't work because I stopped biting my nails but started working on the cuticles. Finally, I just made a statement that said I deserved healthy nails and hands.
