Don't Stop Believing In You

You have to forgive me first off. My writing might be all over the place for this post. I am so much better painting, how I feel.

As you all know, this month, is the month where I get emotional. I start to think about the hospital and how fortunate I am. Christmas has always been emotional for me. I hear Christmas music and I start to cry! And, it's not tears of sadness, I feel the magic. I truly do ;o) But, now, I tend to cry more, because I think of the past, but I smile too, because I am here ;o)
Me in the hospital (don't look to close, I wasn't able to pluck my chin hairs for two weeks, or wash my hair! LOL!)
People these days are crazy and they are getting worse every year! The malls are packed. Nobody smiles. It's give me more and more. And, I am going to yell here, excuse me, PUT DOWN YOUR CELL PHONES! THEY ARE NOT NEEDED, EVERYWHERE YOU GO! I just heard today, that the train crash in Spain, was caused by the driver texting!!! EXCUSE ME???? 79 PEOPLE DIED! I don't even own a cell phone. I don't even know what an i-phone looks like! Wake up people!

Think about your family, friends, a stranger. It's not only about you! Open a door for someone, when you walk through it. I have to admit, when someone opens the door for me, I smile big time ;o) Makes me feel so good inside. Or when an older gentleman tells me I'm cute, I really smile ;o) That's what life is about ;o) Making other people feel good ;o) And, that doesn't mean you have to buy them something! Smile, be good to your neighbor ;o) I feel our society is changing for the worse! You know, I am not going to be like these people! No one will change me! I will keep smiling and keep believing! ;o) No one is going to take my spirit from me!

I know so many of you have went through so much this year and are still going through so many things! Makes my heart break, when I think of these things! I don't know what to say? But, I do know one thing, you can't stop believing! Believing in yourself!!!! You can't let your magic, your spirit die! Even when things get to the lowest, find your spark! Please!

Shit happens, I know it does! Everything from illness, death, losing a job, someone scamming a person, a loved one walking into your life one day and walking out the next. I don't know why this happens. But, you have to become stronger and a better person because of it and live each day to the fullest!

Me out of the hospital, with my favorite hat on. My mom made it for me and I wear it every winter ;o) A special gift, when I came home.
Smile, dance, have some wild love making with your mate ;o) Live ;o) Give your fur babies a hug ;o) Cherish nature ;o) Cherish life ;o) Cherish your family and friends ;o) And, when your soul shines, other souls around you will shine too!
Maybe those crazy people will be blinded by how bright our souls are shining and they might change? We can only hope ;o)
For all of those who have suffered over this past year in blog land and are still going through things, keep your fire burning bright and remember, we are here for you!!! I do believe in positive healing energy!

Big Hugs and Much Love To You All ;o) Never stop Believing ;o)
Oh and one more thing, you are beautiful! Don't ever think, you have to get a boob job to make someone love your more! That isn't love!!!!

  3. Stacy, you are such a pure heart and I love you for it. I agree with every thing that you wrote. We get so wrapped up in things not being perfect that we forget.....almost perfect is magickal as well. We all have flaws, problems, heartaches and pain. That's the life part. Overlooking those and being a better person, a happier soul is the living part.
    I love you gentle spirit. To you and to living, cheers. Oma Linda

  5. Stacy you are so sweet! You carry magic and love wherever you go. I know people can be self absorbed at times, it happens sometimes, but I hope when it does happen it doesn't darken anyone else's day. Tragic about the texting accident... Big hugs to you and your mum and I am hoping you have a beautiful holiday season.

  6. Here! Here! What a Beautiful Post!!

    I agree wholeheartedly, a small act of kindness is always received as a big gift!! Acts of Kindness feel great all around and this is the perfect time of year to take a step away from the busy schedules and do something nice for someone else!!

    Have a Wonderful Day!

  7. Oh, Stacy girl, you ALWAYS make me smile!! What a wonderful post! I couldn't agree more with you. I do have a cell phone (not an iphone, just a regular old cell phone...lol) BUT I'm not attached to it 24/7 like a lot of people. In fact, I don't "always" want to be available : ) We all need to slow down, appreciate all that we have, and look for the bright things in life. No, it's not always easy, especially when things seem to all be going wrong, but there's still always something to be grateful for, even if it's just that we're still breathing! I got your email and I'll answer soon. Thanks SO much for being YOU and being a positive spirit in the world! Love and hugs, Cindy

  11. Oh Stacy - I have goose bumps!!! That really touched my heart. Thank you for saying things as they are. And for pointing out that it is not what happens to us - it is about how we deal with it. The world can be a cruel place - but everyone can make a difference. Just you are here in blogland. I cherish your blog and your comments on mine. You make everyone shine by just being you!!!! A big hug to you my friend!!!!

  12. The world has changed and not for the better. Used to love Christmas time, now it's just another day.

  13. Hi Stacy, I agree 100% with you and your thoughts. No one thinks about anyone else. No acts of kindness any more. I use to think this time of year was special... aaah no. This is a hard month for me too... my dad died the day after Christmas many years ago....

  14. Beautifully said Stacey! My family and close friends decided years ago to stop exchanging gifts since it started to feel ridiculous. The holidays should be about spending quality time with each other. Plus this is a huge stress reliever!

    I'm so happy you are with us today in the Blog Land, Your posts and comments always make me smile. :) You're right, there is nothing like those little random acts of kindness. It is amazing how they spread too! When someone lets me go in traffic I smile and end up returning that favor to another stranger.

  15. and you wonder why I call you little Magic Love Crow 'cause you haven't forgotten what the true meaning of Christmas and how important it is to be kind to others, to strangers who may only get your beautiful smile for Christmas everything you said, is heavenly, never change you are beautiful inside out, and thank for showing us photos of you ...You're even more real to me, pure magic...I hope your head is ok, I know Your heart IS xxxooo

  17. This is a beautiful post,and like Lone, I have goose bumps. You are right that society has gotten so far away from what is important in life. Your spirit touches not only those around you, but it ripples into the world--I know we are better for having you in this world with us. Hugs.

  21. Bug hugs and love and yes, I'm sure Christmas is a mixture of memories for you. That smile in the hospital. What a huge, happy smile! You're absolutely right. We should hand those big smiles out, because they're free and they make anything (eve Christmas malls) better. I smile because it takes ten years off my face, but hey, maybe that's just me ;)

  23. The other day, I went to Target to get some PJ's for my nephew. He was staying over, and forgot to bring an extra set of clothes; a woman almost hit me right in the face with a door. She didn't even turn around to see if I was okay. I mean, I was, but it's the thought that counts.

    People have forgotten why we celebrate the season. It's not because of gifts, it's not because of party, it's because the Earth is helping us through another winter. We are alive! In your case, literally.

    This year, I celebrate you, my friend. Chin hairs and all. You are very LOVED ;-D

  26. You know I told my husband, as a joke, that the conductor must have been sending a message on his phone, now I realize it was true and how tragic. You are right – people are thinking so much about themselves they don’t think about others. Your post is so sincere – I can tell you talk directly from your heart. I wish many people would read your post and get some true inspiration. I loved it.

  27. Stacy you are a Miracle! You speak the truth which is so infrequent these days. I love your post and am going to share it all over the place. Your words and your art are so inspiring! Bless you dear and please keep speaking the truth because we all need to hear it! Love you Dear... Diane

  30. I love your attitude, Stacey! I can agree to so much you wrote here. I hate all those cell phone-people as well. I do have a cell phone, though - I guess every parent has - but I seldom use it and most times it is not even switched on. I am not a phone person at all!!!

    I love your way of looking to life. Please keep that. And thank you for reminder of believing in ourselves.

  34. I love your energy and your spirit! Your words jump off the page and lift my heart a little. The past few months I find little to write about with all the things getting in my path. Coming here is a good reminder to not let them put out my spark.

    Hope you have a very happy Christmas season and enjoy each day with continued good health- wear the hat and think of your blessings and your friends out here... Dance in the snow!

  35. Oh Stacy I LOVE this post!!! Every word, every emotion, every blessing!!! When people talk about the "magic" of the Holidays, what they are talking about is the heartfelt magic that comes from YOU and others like YOU!!! Your magic and your love got me to December when I wanted to give up so badly!!!! Oh and I can't forget your mom too!

    And just as you smile at others, they will carry that smile and it will be contagious! It's beautiful people like you that light the starts at night and bring that beautiful glow to the sky right before the sun rises!

    You are beautiful (and so is your hat) and yes it would be nice if the whole world could see the beauty around them, some are just in the dark unfortuently. Yes we all need to head your words and keep the sparks alive in us! Thanks for the great reminder.

    My small, saggy 51 year old boobs are still hanging in there and if someone wants to love me, well they have to love the real thing :)

    Love you Stacy!!!! The world IS blessed by having you in it! Oh and I am going to crank up the music and dance and think of you wearing that AWESOME hat!!! (Good job mom!)

  36. Beautiful, wonderful, BLESSED post, dear friend! You are so, so right; it is indeed as Robert Hastings says in "The Station": "The true joy of life is the trip... stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. Instead, climb more mountains, eat more ice cream, go barefoot more often, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets, laugh more and cry less. Life must be lived as we go along". *Big Christmasy Hug*
