Synchronicity

Remember when I was saying that I've taken the No Stuff challenge? I'm really struggling right now. My favourite online shop just got some new goodies and I am SO tempted to treat myself. Maybe I will... just a little bit... I'll keep thinking about it until the weekend.

I've been noticing a lot of synchronicity (or synCROWnicity as Pam puts it!) lately. I've been having a lot of strange dreams and I'm sure there's a message somewhere in there. Recurring themes and images. One word that's been coming back for the past couple of days is Renaissance. As in rebirth (and once it was as the historical period.) It was even in one of my dreams. I remember that it was written on a black board in a classroom (I've been dreaming a lot about being back in school lately.) It said "entre deux renaissances" which basically translates to "between two rebirths." Hmm. Interesting. In my quest to living a greener life, I've had the idea to make my own net bags for fruits and veggies instead of using those flimsy plastic bags they have at the grocery store. A few days after I had that thought, JoyceAnn was talking about the same thing on her blog. Little things. Big things. Lots of synchronicity. I'm loving it.

So far this week, I've really been watching what I eat. Not counting calories or anything like that but I make sure to eat enough from all food groups and especially fruits and veggies. I'm doing really well. Also, today was my fourth day in a row that I've been walking, and not just the walk back and forth to work. At least 10 minutes each day. I'm feeling good. I'm enjoying it. Life is beautiful.

Before I go, I want to direct you to Lisa Vollrath's upcoming countdown. And today's image is last night's Art Card. Made with Stampin Up! papers and Amercian Crafts rub-ons. Using up that stuff I have on hand.

Yep! that's synCROWnicity ,allright1 Be sure to write down as much as you can rember of your dreams.. like colors , words images...make a dream book. I did this once when I was in therapy(yes..I was clinically depressed at the time) Dreams can tell you a lot! ...BTW..I am also trying to curtail buying stuff..easy for me since I have no extra $$! ha!
