Being me

I quickly left the house without any makeup on. I rarely wear it anyways these days, but I still think makeup is fun.

This morning I really wanted to get a peaceful walk in. We are having one of those perfect gray days where it’s nice and cool.

Leaving my Invisalign in the house and not having them on my teeth is a “no no” but my teeth have been shifting and straightening just fine when I do this. Early on I very closely adhered to having them in as close to 24/7, but today having this walk and writing a blog at the same time.

Normally I wouldn’t share a photo of myself, much less would I share a photo of myself like this, but I’m pretty sure that happiness is good enough for me. See the above picture is from the stone I saw immediately after leaving my house, giving me a most lovely message.

My 40th birthday is coming up soon, and I’m coming to terms with it, being reflective, purposeful, inspired.

‘Age’ messages have been coming up all over the place. I was listening to podcast with face reader Lillian Bridges and this one caught my eye. I want to do this earlier, I thought.

Then I saw this one above, and I am thinking of ways to be adventurous includes sharing this picture of me on my blog. Why not?

I hope, you, my readers are well. I look forward to “seeing” you again, soon! I’m going to enjoy my walk now…. just wanted to share ๐Ÿ’—

  1. You look beautiful Ka and I like the glasses! I think near 40 looks great on you, you look much younger with bright energy. I hope the Lillian Bridges message is true as I get close to 60! Could it be that motherhood has lightened you up even more and gives you a youthful glow?

    Keep being you and enjoy your walk. โค

    1. Thank you, Linda! Thanks… I actually need new frames. Iโ€™ve had these for a very long time! I so appreciate your kind comment. Iโ€™ve been enjoying motherhood so much! I had a really good walk, and I try to keep doing that, to keep my spirits up with the current state of the pandemic and the grim political situation. Sending you lots of love, Ka

  2. Happiness is the most profound makeup, Ka. And no quantity of makeup can hide its absence. Thanks for following your heart and sharing this lovely message. May we all let the light within us shine!

    Hope you had a lovely walk…

    1. Thank you very much, Michael! You really โ€œheardโ€ me. I did have a lovely walk….

      I had tried to post a comment your way a couple of times on a recent blog post but it didnโ€™t work. This happened maybe 2 or 3 times a couple of weeks ago. Maybe Iโ€™ll try again soon while Mercury has stationed direct in Cancer (a water sign)! ๐Ÿ’ง

    1. Thank you, Shay! I felt like saying โ€œhiโ€ with my โ€˜wholeโ€™ & basic look these days…. lol ๐Ÿ˜† just me being me. Birthday is coming up soon! It will be a very quiet one. They usually are… but this one even moreso. Thank you dear Shay xoxoxo

      1. It is not the noise we make on these days, it is the fact we don’t let them pass when these are precious seconds we can’t get again xxxx ( I buried my mum on a birthday once. It took me years to know we still should do even the smallest thing. You know, I have not said this to many folks xxxx)

      2. Iโ€™m so absolutely sorry you buried your mum on your one birthday. Thank you for your sharing this tender memory here. Iโ€™m sorry it took me a while to respond. My sweet grandmother died very recently. I Appreciate you Shay. Xxxoo

  3. so beautiful to see you! you are lit up with joy from the inside out and it looks stunning on you. gorgeous also is that pendant! wonderful energy it exudes, just like your heart! so glad you decided to share yourself here Ka! โค much love to you.

    1. Thank you, Tania! So nice to greet you, greeting me ๐Ÿ’—! I look forward to coming your way and seeing what you have been up to on your blog and in your art, reiki, etc. ๐Ÿ™‚
      My pendant is a special amulet Iโ€™ve been using for my Medicine Woman Rite of the 12 Celestial Regents. Itโ€™s pretty โ€œjuicedโ€ up at this point after months and months of ritual work and focused intent. ๐Ÿ’— Much love back to you!

  4. Ka, you look great! If you are concerned about anything at all, it is in your own mind.
    Don’t know who Lillian Bridges is, but her comment about people over ’60’ is just not
    true. For instance, I started my blog when I was around 60, and it’s been over 11 years now!

    1. Thank you very much, Eddie! I always enjoy your perspective and your coming here and sharing. Lillian Bridges is a Chinese medical face reader. Itโ€™s a tradition thatโ€™s been in her family for a few generations and she travels the world lecturing on it. I love your blog!! ๐Ÿ’—

  5. A lovely photo of you! Happy 40th ๐Ÿ™‚ It is a time of reflection indeed, I remember that when I turned that age, and I am sure you will make this coming decade a pursposeful one that is full of many great things! I hope you had a nice walk xx

    1. Oh, thank you, Christy!! I canโ€™t imagine you being older than 40, because of your youthful smile and that special vibrant light in your eyes…
      I hope this decade can be long-lived and full of many great things, and connections. My walk was so lovely! ๐Ÿ’— wishing you a safe summer with lots of meaningful moments!
