#sPIRITSAYS: 2013

2013

January

  • Watching for the end and wishing it wouldn’t, spectacular buds of opportunity float by unseen. Appreciate the rosy present and rose-colored glasses will not be needed to see your grand future.
    1/1/13
  • On tiptoes and fingers stretching, you resolve to reach your “do better” goal. Stretch goals are admirable, especially when started with loving who and where you are now.
    1/2/13
  • Fiscal promiscuity pulls at the thread of sustainability. Do you remember what it is to darn a sock? 0 debt will take more than a virtual commitment.
    1/3/13
  • This too shall pass. The house will soon land and when it does, the door will open to wondrous changes in the landscape and radiant smiles on your neighbors’ faces.
    1/4/13

    1/5/13

    1/7/13
  • Like a curly willow, you were born from a seed with the desire to grow and expand so strong that you spend your life stretching for the sky. Nurture your nature.
    1/8/13
  • You are a package deal. Stay balanced and remember that no one part deserves the spotlight or front row seats every day.
    1/9/13
  • Lulled by the rhythm of the regularly spaced and only momentarily felt bumps, skating on sidewalks is giving you smooth sailing time to think. In this space you meet your potential.
    1/10/13
  • The foam remembers the way you like to be held but arms can remember too. Climb out of your queen bed and back up on the dating horse. It is time to get cozy with something other than your comforter.
    1/11/13
  • Putting in your coin, the ride starts and so does your smile. Remember the fun is in the ups and downs, not the round and rounds.
    1/12/13
  • Just as baby’s chubby fingers curl instinctively around yours, you too know that the hand reaching into your crib is a helping hand and one to be trusted.
    1/13/13

    1/17/13
  • Just as suspenders hold up the saggiest of drawers, we hold up the saggiest of hearts. Your job is to believe all things are possible — our job is to support you in that belief, showing you that your dreams can and do come true.
    1/18/13
  • As the wave recedes, you have but a minute to witness the salty foam trail before it melts into sandy oblivion. Messages meant ‘for your eyes only’ are written in disappearing ink and do not stay in solid form for long. Pay attention loved one, we are sending you a sign.
    1/19/13
  • Remember making a whirlpool in your doughboy with friends and then on 3, all turned to sprint slow motion until you were once again controlling the current? You are always in control, now which way do you want to go? Hint: Collectively you have said 3!
    1/20/13
  • Once but a dream of the wisest of men, ‘hear no evil – see no evil – speak no evil’ is now a living breathing reality. Doing good is a conscious choice made moment to moment by a conscious people.
    1/21/13
  • Opening the book, a line catches your eye. Even as you read further into the story, your mind is busy wringing wisdom from the original words. Sentences for the soul are the juice, small shots meant to guide and affirm.
    1/22/13

    1/23/13

    1/26/13
  • A cocoon is never more beautiful than when it is baking a butterfly.
    1/27/13
  • Bills to pay, we hear the collective groan but we remind you that there are some who would feel blessed to receive a bill for electric lights and hot water.
    1/28/13
  • Whether tapping your toe in impatience or to the beat, the movement is the same. Set your intention rather than letting it be open for interpretation.
    1/29/13
  • Whether in Notre Dame or Nordstrom, release the behemoth baggage on your hunched backed shoulders. Set your burdens down before worry adds a chip to your shoulder and cripples your outlook.
    1/30/13
  • A fling is a recklessness weed that can overtake even the healthiest of hearts. Lust is a vine that grabs and entwines, and all who come near can be caught in its carnivorous grasp. Don’t let it take root.
    1/31/13

February

    2/9/13
  • Hoping the snake bite kit won’t be needed, you lace up your boots and set off eager to explore new territory on your annual hike. This year both fangs and claws will be content to stay sheathed, preferring the warmth of the rock instead of the tough hide of your soul.
    2/10/13
  • Lift up the film to erase past hurts. Let this be an etch-a-sketch moment. Wipe the slate clean.
    2/11/13

    2/24/13
  • Do you remember the last time your cheeks ached from smiling? Your joy guide says it is time to laugh. A belly laugh a day is even healthier than an apple.
    2/25/13
