Welcoming a wonderful New Year: H a p p y 2 0 1 4 !


{ vertically from left to right: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. }


H e l l o !

with true Joy I come here to wish you all

the merriest of New Year's ahead!


Here is to a 2014

where each day - or as many days as possible -

begin - and are! - as if it is

  O u r   B i r t h d a y .


Here is to a Year

where G o o d  D e e d s 

brighten up our  

W o r l d 


Here is to a Year full of

physical, emotional & spiritual

H e a l t h  &  G r o w t h


Here is to a Year

where  P a t i e n c e is not only a virtue,

but an honorable way of living,

benefiting the ones who practice it,

as much as the ones who receive it.


Here is to a Year 

{ clockwise from top right: 1. 2. 3. 4. & 5 }

where the little things are enjoyed,

true stories are shared

for good purposes

and to a year where  I n d i v i d u a l i t y 

is celebrated,

cause the W h o l e is nothing without the sum of its parts.

So let each part be as magnificent & pretty

as  S n o w f l a k e s  are,

all  d i f f e r e n t  in their own beautiful way!


Here is to o a Year filled

with all kinds of  m a r v e l s  &  w o n d e r s  &  m i r a c l e s,

cause there is enough space in

the arms of this World & this Life

for  i n f i n i t e  numbers of them to occur.


{ the woods  +  the sea  }

I'm and have been feeling ever so grateful for so many aspects of life in general and mine personally,

and know that this intensely "pregnant" period I seem to have been going through 

lately is reaching to the point of a happy, focused & prosperous release.


And yes, sharing my work in what has become { our beautiful, beloved home } & my recent projects!


* ssshhh, let this be a secret { you may as well laugh here, I'm doing so, too ; ) }, 
but I think I must have gone through a phase of adult  t i m i d i t y... well if that exists... can you possibly relate in any way?...enjoying life & very often also wishing to share about it all, but somehow being hesitant... or just wishing for privacy and quietness after all...
a bizarre thing for a person with quite a few social media platforms you might say... * 


this calls for reevaluation of situations...

but to return to what I was talking about,

above all I'm grateful for the loved ones in my life,

my home next to the woods, 

here  in the middle of this beautiful country,

as much as appreciative of my origins by the sea.



On another notice, recently I read this on Pick the brain and I was sighing with  r e l i e f,

while the word  B E L I E F 

was "blinking" with pure, white light all over and around me...

it's just  SO NICE  to find out there something

that resonates so perfectly with your thoughts & emotions simultaneously ....

Care to read through and come back here to share your thoughts?

A little time consuming perhaps, 

but then maybe when you make some time space for it!


{ left  & right }

So, how about when giving advice, to try to be modest by adding a phrase like:

"this is working for me, so I thought I share it with you in case it could help you, too!"


I do say a big , clear YES to thorough  p l a n n i n g   &   o r g a n i s a t i o n,

as in so many parts of life it is absolutely essential

{ well, much like in our living environments ; ) }

but then, let's also remember that not all people are, think or act the same,

and each situation is unique


In some cases and phases of our lives, perhaps all we really do need is to just: 

b r e a t h e,  t r u s t, l e t go &  s e e  what happens,

while keeping in mind that

g o o d  things  t a k e  t i m e,

so let us just  b e  p a t i e n t

and work passionately towards actualizing our deepest positive wishes & desires! 



I'm very happy and thankful that you take part here,

in this blog place which still feels right with my heart,

{ I even STILL like the header after 2 and half years!.. is it just... me? oh well. }

I wish for changes.

There's more than that & I need to combine my strengths to carry it all off!

There is evolving a new order of things & I'm as eager to see the form and outcome

as much as you are perhaps!



We all need each other

and I know I need people like you,

who take the time to go through,

read & reflect upon what is shared here or wherever else I might be.

Above all I love to share

J O Y !



{ clockwise from : 1. 2. 3. 4. & 5. } 

d i s c l a i m e r  : 

all the images have been found on pinterest boards of people I follow.

Other than combining them together into collages to convey a personal

message, the full rights belong to their creators,

who I'd very much love to know!

However it seemed impossible to find original sources in most of the cases,

therefore lots of them as just linked to pinterest,

all of which you can find on my "like" page,



I would love to be pinning all these in my boards,

so if anyone could assist in providing valuable sources so that it can be done the "proper" way,
I'd be ever so thankful!

  3. Happy New Year, dear Ivy!! I hope everything is well with you. Loved reading your post, by the way! I totally relate and I think it's so refreshing!! Looking forward to reconnecting with my favorite people from like the good old days - when flickr was that very popular platform for photographers.And that is why I'm here with you today, so we can keep in touch and support one another. :) Now we have instagram, etc, etc... and people seem to be all over the place - so much noise out there! This year I have many goals to accomplish and one of them is to start blogging again. So if you want to come over and visit, you'll find me at this address: sincerelycarmen.com . Now, I'm not the best of writers like you are, but I speak from the heart. :) I'm looking forward to connect with genuine people like you. So hopefully we'll continue to stay intouch. My best wishes to you, dear friend. And may God continue to bless you with gifts, talents, happy thoughts, a balanced and peaceful abundant life!

  4. Happy New Year to you too dear Carmen,

    I'm glad you enjoyed the post! Thank you very much for your kindest words & the beautiful wishes you generously shared at the end of your paragraph. I deeply appreciate it. Even words have vibrations and your good intentions have reached me and moved me deeply. This is such a beautiful Sunday here, despite the grey weather & you have contributed to making it so much more nicer!

    About being a good writer, what other than writing from the heart would be one of the characteristics of a "good one" ? I'm sure you are a great writer therefore. As for me, I can only confirm that writing comes to me very naturally, that it comes straight from the heart & that it fills me with utter Joy & happiness :) If that makes me a good one then, I'm content to accept the compliment. Thank you once more.

    I'll be visiting you on your blog. I'm wishing you a wonderful journey there!
    The best of wishes to you, too!

    Iro xoxo

    1. Marijuana—also called weed, herb, pot, grass, bud, ganja, Mary Jane, and a vast number of other slang terms—is a greenish-gray mixture of the dried flowers of Cannabis sativa.

      The main active chemical in marijuana is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive ingredient. The highest concentrations of THC are found in the dried flowers, or buds. When marijuana smoke is inhaled, THC rapidly passes from the lungs into the bloodstream and is carried to the brain and other organs throughout the body. THC from the marijuana acts on specific receptors in the brain, called cannabinoid receptors, starting off a chain of cellular reactions that finally lead to the euphoria, or "high" that users experience. Feeling of a relaxed state, euphoria, and an enhanced sensory perception may occur. With higher THC levels in those who are not used to the effects, some people may feel anxious, paranoid, or have a panic attack.
      Cannabis plant used for medical or recreational purposes. The main psychoactive part of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol, one of the 483 known compounds in the plant, including at least 65 other cannabinoids.

  19. Best Article about psychedelic for sale  Excellent post. I appreciate this site. thanks for sharing! Because the admin of this web page is working, no doubt very quickly it will be well-known, due to its quality contents. This website was how do you say it? Relevant!! Finally, I’ve found something that helped me. it has never been easy to buy psychedelic online because there are few suppliers who can actually supply you with good quality psychedelics. But last week, I was fortunate enough to order top quality mushroom online at psychedeliconlinesales.com and I received the products with maximum security and fast delivery. I will advice anyone in need to visit psychedeliconlinesales.com for mushroom and other psychedelic products .
