No, friends, I’ve not forgotten my blog…I’ve been fully stretched and the weeks just all morph into one. All *should* return to normal after the weekend.

What follows is something my mum sent to me about 15 years ago. I came across it yesterday when doing my ghastly taxes ~ you know, that big box with dozens of papers that you've got to compile into order by the end of January. I grew up with a belief in the Law of Karma ~ as you sow, so shall you reap. Every action has a consequence, etc. I believe this is a healthier, more liberating look at our old friend karma. Have a gorgeous week ~ Veronika

Choosing your own lessons

Karma is not a law.

Karma is not given out by Karma Lords. It is not even a law. The truth is…it is one of many forms of decision making. It is one of the many ways you make decisions about what you want to learn. It is a vehicle that you use. It is not a law by which you must abide.

It is about what lessons you want to embrace; to tackle and embrace. Please note the words.

All along you have been choosing them. It is time to choose expansive lessons. It is time to choose what is right and good about you ~ your determination, your inventiveness, creativity, self-reliance, resourcefulness, commitments, courage; your love, passion and compassions that live inside of you.

Happy New Year

Dear reader,

Wishing you a sparkling, bright, brilliant, peaceful, loving, abundant and truly gorgeous New Year! Enjoy every single day, and live it as if it's your last.
~ Blessings, Veronika

I am unused, unspotted, without blemish,
I stretch before you three hundred
And sixty-five days long.
I will present each day
In its turn, a new leaf
In the book of life
For you to place upon
It your imprint


Each hour of every day, I will
Give you sixty minutes that
Have never known the use of man.
White and pure I present them;
It remains for you to fill them
With sixty jeweled seconds of
Love, hope, endeavor, patience
And trust in God.

I am coming -- But once past, I can
Never be recalled, Make me your best!
