Where is Tara?

I've been neglecting my blog, I'll admit it. I've been thoroughly involved in a rapidly moving thread on MDC about the LOA that keeps me busy for most of my internet time. I have learned so much in such a little time through the Secret and these women that I feel like a different woman than I was just two months ago.

Life is moving on with me. I have acupuncture once a week. I try to get pregnant. I feel gratitude for all I have in life. We live and enjoy each other to the fullest. I am the healthiest I've ever been and I am finally experienceing some peace of mind. My demons are moving further away from me each day and I am living a life that some would dream of.

I'll be back soon with some updates but my best friend is coming to visit soon and I probably won't be back until late next week because we'll be hanging out.

MDC Brilliance

This came from a MDC mama and I want to remember it so I'm putting it here for future reference.

Wanting isn't the problem. Needing (fill in the blank) in order to be happy is a problem. Focusing on not having it will block the manifestation. The trick is to want it, and also be happy here and now and to know you are totally fine and happy without it. As in, I really want a boyfriend. And I am having so much fun on my own, that I am fine with this as long as it goes on. When he shows up we will have a great time together, just as I am having a wonderful time, now.Tricky, sometimes, true. But as assignments go, "Be Happy!" is a rather pleasant one, I think.

Valentine's Day

I am so excited for Valentine's day tomorrow. A whole holiday for celebrating LOVE. I have really been having powerful feelings of love lately. I love my family so much. I also love our home and town and weather and the fun we have together. While things in my life have not always gone as I would have wished them to, I realize that I am really lucky and have a really great life.
This crazy little skinny cutie is my favorite Valentine! Check out those abs!

First Necklace

I know the pic isn't great but I tried several times and this was the best I could get. This necklace has much significance. The stones were picked for their particular attributes:
Rose Quartz - It emits a calming, cooling energy. Love, beauty, peacefulness, forgiving, lovingness, self-love, emotional balance. Gently soothes and warms heart center. Emotional healing, loss, stress, hurt, fear, low confidence, resentment, anger. Slowly eases childhood traumas/neglect/lack of love, low self-esteem. Good to wear in a chaotic or crisis situation. It is "the stone of gentle love" bringing peace and calm to relationships. It can be used for spiritual attunement to the energy of love. It is a rejuvenating agent for both physical body and the emotions. It is an excellent energy for healing emotional "wounds".

Smoky Quartz - It can be used to gently dissolve negative energies and emotional blockages. Alleviates fear, anxiety, depression. It can be used to initiate a powerful force field which will absorb many forms of negativity, both from within ones self and from other forces. It promotes personal pride and joy in living. Smoky quartz has been used to regulate creativity in business, and to encourage astute-ness in purchasing. It works to diffuse communication deficiencies and to dissolve mental and emotional blockages which limit perception and learning.

I was also planning on including clear quartz but it never made it in. I made this necklace today on the first day of my new menstrual cycle. I made it with fertility and my future child in my mind and heart as I carefully lined the stones up. I made sure that there are two smoky quartz stones on each side of the pendant signifying the 4 people that will be in the loving unit of my family. The pendant is a rose quartz rabbit. In Ancient Chinese Medicine the rabbit symbolizes fertility. I am pleased with the results and will wear this necklace and feel it's healing qualities as I embark on my next cycle. I am blessing it and thanking mother nature for providing the health and fertility that will come to me through these gemstones.

Superbowl etc.

Isn't he the cutest bookworm you've ever seen?

The game was exciting last night. I was pulling for the Colts mostly because I like Tony Dungy and Peyton Manning. Otherwise I really didn't care too much which is nice as it makes for a pretty relaxing superbowl. I was very emotional yesterday and went all out for Superbowl food for the three of us. We had meatballs (well, Curt did), shrimp, spinach dip and pita chips, and strawberry shortcake I made myself.

The garage sale went as well as possible considering it rained both days and had thunder and lightening on Saturday. The weather has been rough on us Central Floridians again but I am lucky to say my family and I are all safe and fine. I do really wish my warm Florida sun would peek out again soon though. So we made about $75 and I got rid of a bunch more clutter by having the garage sale. I ended up donating any toys that didn't sell to a family I learned of who did lose their home and belongs in the storms. The specifically asked for toys for their kids so it worked out nicely that I was able to donate those that didn't sell. Otherwise a few things are going in the attic and two boxes will be donated to the church.

I went to Joann's looking for some specific gemstones this weekend and didn't find what I wanted. So today after Yoga I went to a little Bead shop I had heard of and found what I wanted. The prices seemed high and the lady was less than friendly, but the beads were just what I wanted and very pretty so I splurged and bought them. I'll try to get back to Joann's (with my coupon) for some wire and other do-dads so I can start on the necklace I have envisioned ASAP. I'll post pics when possible.

Well, I've been up since 4:30 ish this morning. We had some really wicked stroms come through our wonderful state this morning (what's new). It was so loud and I couldn't fall back asleep but luckily Curtis slept right through it. It's also lucky that we had no damage as I've seen online that some people lost homes and some even died in parts of the state.

This morning we had our garage sale and made over $50 already. If I can make that much again tomorrow I'll be super happy. I can't believe I made that much off of stuff I was gonna just donate to Goodwill.

Now I must go catch a short nap. I'm so sleepy.
