I love this quote....

Throughout life, we get clues that remind us what direction we are supposed to be headed in. If you do not pay attention, then you make lousy choices and end up with a miserable life. If you stay focused, then you learn your lessons and have a full good life.

It's by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross I found it her book called the Wheel of Life.

* I have a really special layout that I created a few days ago. I really love the journalling messages I did in it for my boys. *

Just a few weeks ago I wrote a message on the blue bazaar forum asking for scrap buddies in South Australia. Since then I have met and scrapbooked with two new buddies. Deb and Steph! And tommorrow I get to do it again (hopefully). It's so nice to met new people, venture out and scrapbook!

Soul Letters: Once a week write a heartfelt letter

I read this passage in ‘don’t sweat the small stuff’ by Richard Carlson, called “Write a heartfelt letter once per week”.

He states: ‘This is an exercise that has helped to change many lives, assisting people in becoming more peaceful and loving. Taking a few minutes each week to write a heartfelt letter does many things for you. Picking up a pen or typing on a keyboard slows you down for long enough to remember the beautiful people in your life and in this world. The act of sitting down to write helps to fill your life with gratitude.
Once you decide to try this, you'll probably be amazed at how many people appear on your list. Even if you don’t have people in your life to whom you feel you can write, go ahead and write the letter to someone you don’t even know instead – perhaps to an author who may not even be living, whose works you admire. (Etc). Or to a great inventor or thinker from the past or present. Part of the value of the letter is to gear your thinking toward gratitude. Writting the letter, even if it isn't sent, would do just that.

The purpose of your letter is very simple to express love and gratitude. Don't worry if you're awkward at writting letters. This isn't a contest from the head but a gift from the heart.

Write your first letter this week. I'll bet you'll be glad you did.

I'm going to write my first two letters to my sons, Owen and Caleb.
