1st of August, Beeginning of the Week and a Brand NEW Year... ;O)


Tomorrow starts the first day of August, the beginning of a new week, a new month and a new year.  What I mean by a new year, is a new year added to my age ~ Yessirreee, I will be a young 51 on the 17th of this month.  They say when you turn 50 you enter your golden years, well I beg to differ on that ... You see, for me it seems things weren't that way mine started out tarnish ~ a month before I hit the BIG "5" "0" I began a year of many losts, a year of tests, a year of disarray, a year of tears, a year of depression, and a year of despair.

The past year can be looked at as an analogy to a purse/pocketbook ~ When you set up your purse/pocketbook everything is neat, tidy and in order but as time goes by... you throw a receipt in from this store and that store... your earrings that you were wearing one breaks so you take both of them off and into the purse for safe keeping, you go to get lunch at a fast food drive through, the employee gives you the change and PLOP it goes into your pocketbook... you run into an old friend and you both exchange telephone numbers and addresses and BING the paper goes, yes into the purse with everything else.

Before you know it your nice tidy little purse/pocketbook isn't that way anymore ~ You're afraid to open it up in public because something might fall out or you'd be embarrassed if someone saw the inside of it..  So you snap it shut hoping that NO ONE asks you to open it up again...

You see the purse "like my Life" can be sorted, straighten, removing and letting go of things to lighten the weight of the purse overall bringing the purse back to where it started.  When letting things go it brings on a good feeling - knowing that you can leave some of these things at home or letting go completely and moving on with your Life.

Well I beelieve that I've gotten my purse/pocketbook back to were I can open up without fear & the weight of it is definitely manageable...  it doesn't weigh me down anymore.   All in all, I like and am proud of my Life/purse .  I have many many things to be thankful for and know that my LIFE aka purse runneth over with blessings.  There are a few folks that truly helped me through this time and I will bee forever in their debt ~ a debt that I am glad and happy to have, because they don't realize how valuable their time, love and caring meant to me...



 
With that all said ~ I've decided to do a 365 Creative Journal of this year journey to CELEBRATE the year that is ahead of me up till the next 1st day of August... this journey will bee shown & posted in on an older blOZ that I had called http://www.queenbeeofcreativity.blogspot.com/ ... My first creative venture for tomorrow will be creating a new banner for this blOZ... Note ~ I know that I started a journey with doing bEes in it ~ this Journey/Journal will also have a bEe on the piece that I create ~ it's like the book "Where's Waldo" well in this case it will bEe "Where's the bEe"... It might bEe there right in front of you or it might be hidden some where on the piece... The reason for the two blOZs is so that I can keep control of the entries and make sure that I'm on the move with creating too...

You will also notice little notes on the bottom of the post... this is for my friend Tricia ~ who is hosting "40 day challenge exercise" which I will bee participating in.  Since I'm on vacation from Face Book till after Labor Day I can't post my going ons with the challenge there.  So Tricia will be keeping track of me on the blOZ... 

Phewwww ~ I think I've said a mouth full and then some... I'm going to call it a night... Thank you for taking in all I said... its a lot but I know I can do it...

Have a honey of a night ~ sweet dREaMs!
God Bless~
Love,
Marlene
