Happy birthday to me.
January is my birthday month. One day is simply not enough to celebrate one's birthday, so, I declared the month of January as my birthday month. I was born on my mother and grandmother's birthday and, both my mother and I were born on a full moon! Yes, I have been teased about the full moon connection-- often. I, on the other hand view being born on a full moon as an advantage, like being full of optimism, or, full of creativity and potential. I was born on January 12-- a lucky number as far as Numerology is concerned, I feel doubly blessed.

New Year Resolutions.
I don't make resolutions. I feel resolutions have too high a failure rate. Instead, I have the same agenda I keep year after year. One could argue my agenda is one long resolution. My agenda is simple: I strive to do better every year. I am mindful of my health all year long. I remember to tell the ones I care about how I feel towards them. I stay focused on; what goes around comes around. I recall the jewels of wisdom my mother handed down to me. And, I remember other nuggets of sagacity, I gleaned from various sources. Above all else, I keep in mind that we are here for all too fleeting a time, so I pause and admire the beauty and wonder of this planet everyday! I hope you too are amazed and galvanized by your life.

Since this is my birthday month issue, my thoughts turned towards birthday cards. Last year I came to the conclusion that sending B-day cards was not very ecological minded. So, I decided not to send any or receive any B-day cards. Cards are made from paper and paper is made from trees. Processing trees is a tremendous drain on our natural resources. We are lucky now, we can send E-cards or wish our friends happy birthday on the numerous social sites out there such as Facebook, or Twitter. By not sending a birthday card you will safeguard trees, save on postage, money and preventing another card from ending up in a landfill eventually.
Your Feng Shui tip.
In order to revitalize your life, get rid of dead plants, and dried flowers. Anything dead robs your home and you of alive energy. I especially dislike dead animals, or fish stuffed and mounted on the wall. Not only are you surrounded by dead energy, you are also surrounded by the anguish of the animal/fish at the moment of it's death. That type of energy lingers in your home for as long as the mounted animal remains. You want to be surrounded by vital, alive energy in your home. Your home is your sanctuary, treat it as such.
Thank you to so many of you who sent your New Year well wishes, as always I am happy to get e-mails from you. Stay connected!
May all your hopes and desires come to fruition in 2010!
