Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and THREE giveaways!

Brown Eyed Girl

Well my eyes are actually hazel (with dreamy specs of green and gold in them) they are not brown at all, but when  thinking of Tuesday and what words of wisdom to share, The song "Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morisson came on the radio, and I immediately sang along:

                     Whatever happened to Tuesday and so slow
                     Going down to the old mine
                     With a transistor radio
                     Standing in the sunlight laughing
                      Hiding behind a rainbow's wall
                     Slipping and a sliding
                      All along the waterfall
                      With you, my brown eyed girl
                      Your, my brown eyed girl

While the rainbow's wall in my reality is the park, and the transistor was actually a boom box for me, and the brown eyed girl was really a super tall brown eyed boy, the song brings up great memories! Who is your 'Brown Eyed Girl? Who is Your Brown Eyed Boy? (or maybe blue eyed or green eyed!)

Who is the person you flash back to in your mind when you think of being young, happy and carefree? Is he or she still a part of your life? Remember those days, those people and places that let you truly be yourself? Not the person your boss sees, the person your mom sees, the person your siblings see, the true you, the silly one, the one who likes to laugh and dance, the one who actually like wriggling their toes in sand or between blades of grass.

I for one, miss that place, that time and that person, don't you? Today readers I challenge you to find time to slow down this Tuesday. Re*connect with your Brown Eyed Boy/Girl. Maybe that person has changed and that's OK too, just spend some time with the one person who truly lets you be you today. And don't forget to let them do the same.

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I surround myself with those who appreciate the REAL me.'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

  1. That is the first song that I slow danced to with a boy! My daughter is my brown eyed girl. :) Have you heard the Lady GaGa song Brown Eyes? My daughter told me the other night that she gets lost in my brown eyes!

  2. So this song brings happy memories on both fronts for you! I haven't heard the Lady Gaga song, I'll have to look for it on iTunes and have a listen. What a sweet thing for your daughter to say, I hope you gave her a big fat hug! :-)
