Our thoughts are powerful, like seeds that grow, and can leave us paralyzed or call us to action. Just as our diet nourishes our body, so to do our thoughts nourish our mind and soul. I have kept a journal most of my life and have found that it’s a great way to monitor what’s going on in my head. It’s important because humans have a funny way of deceiving ourselves. Like the food we put into our body, we surely have a choice of what we think about, and it’s important to differentiate thoughts from feelings, as one does not equal the other. Thoughts are the things that will tell us if our feelings are rational or not. Of course it’s possible to have irrational thoughts but you don’t have to look far before you find a feeling attached to it. Awareness is a gift and a marvelous tool, when you get there, and like the tide, is in perpetual motion.

I hope your day is a good and thoughtful one. 📖✏

Happy International Womens Day from me to all you amazing women out there!

Yes, that’s pure joy on my face, standing next to one of my favorite Engineers. We had just finished up on a huge vegetation fire that was threatening multiple homes. If I remember correctly, I was giving him a hard time about his suspenders. Mine weren’t that cool! LOL

Although my health finally made it impossible for me to continue the Fire Service, the 10 years I was in will forever be a gem in my heart. ❤
