Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
I have to admit, I have been up and down for the past week. I've been feeling like this all year. I don't know why? It's like a change or uncertainty is around and you have to trust. If you don't, you get ungrounded and very anxious.

I know many of us are going through changes, like illness, finding new jobs, moving, etc.

I have been so blessed this year, with everything! So grateful! It's just there is something in the pit of my stomach. You have to breathe and like I said, trust! Sometimes, you get tired of crying! LOL! But, crying is a release and it's good!

I know I say this many of times, but thank you for sticking by me!

Guess what? Today is my birthday! Here is my birthday cake!
And, here is my picture, when I saw it. This picture is "natural".  No make up today!

I should have fixed my eye brow! LOL! If you want, let me know, how old you think I turned? Some of you might already know. Don't be bashful! This year was a BIG year for me! I purposely showed a picture with no makeup, so you can see all the wrinkles! LOL!

Sending so much love and blessings out to all of you! I really mean that!
Thank you for the comments on my last painting! Means alot!!

  1. A very, very Happy Birthday to you dear Stacy.
    You are as old as your eyes, and a little older than your teeth (one of my father's sayings).
    I do hope that anxiety backs off. We are living in anxious times and it affects so many of us. Heartfelt hugs and oceans of caring.

  4. I’m sorry you feel anxious, Stacy. Sounds like you had a healing good year, hope whatever is in the pit of your tummy, passes.

    Happy Birthday! Strawberry shortcake?

    You look wonderful. 25 or 27 maybe. I really don’t know. I’m rubbish at ages. I ever give two craps and a pickle, how old people are.

    Wishing you a great week ahead! Cheers and boogie boogie.

  14. Happy Birthday Stacy :) Now I know your name just from looking at the comments! :) I can't guess at ages, I'm normally wrong, but you look so happy and sweet. I'm sorry you're having a rough time. I feel that pit your talking about, it's been nagging me for a month now. I cry a lot too, but for me, it's 99% of the time for stress release and it works. I'm trusting in the Universe and I believe the Universe has my back so I keep chugging on and trying to be happy and positive. Your cake looks delicious!!! :) Take care of yourself!!!

  15. Hope your bday was wondrous. That cake looks delicious and you look fantastic. I wouldn't begin to guess your age. Whatever it is, you look young.
    Okay, here's my question. How do you spell your name? I've been spelling it Stacy lo these many years, but I've noticed several different spellings so I'm not sure which is right. Please enlighten:)

  21. Happy Belated Birthday! You look beautiful even without makeup. Guess your age? Hmmm. Well, I'd say you're younger than me, and I'm 47. So 30? Maybe at the most 40? Love that painting. So colorful!

  29. Happy belated birthday! That cake looks amazing. Some times can definitely be more challenging than others. I hope things improve. I'm terrible at guessing ages, you always look beautiful and kind to me. Age tends to matter less than heart and you are full of heart!

    P.S. You don't look a day over gorgeous to me.

  33. Happy Birthday! Love the picture without makeup. I don't see any wrinkles- but they are signs of living life- so nothing to worry about. Hmmm- not sure at all how old you are. You look young to me. I am guessing in your 20s or maybe 30?

    Yummy cake! Hope you had an amazing day.

  34. Aw, happy belated birthday! Love that photo of you--you seem to be glowing with happiness! TIME FOR BIRTHDAY CONFETTI. ~\o/~

    So sorry to hear you've had so many ups-and-downs lately, though. Know too well how exhausting those can be. Hope all that anxiety starts lessening for you soon!

  35. Dropping by with a very late HAPPY BIRTHDAY greeting! I know you will discover it to be a beautiful year waiting ahead!

    As for feeling "up and down", well, I think it's part of life that ebbs and flows all through the years. I think it's us, strange creatures that we are, who try to impose the idea that we should somehow evolve or grow beyond that feeling. I can't imagine life going along too long without some of that rollercoaster of emotion, uncertainty and questioning. It's part of the gift of life to be able to face it again and again and see where we are among it. In my Zen teacher's view, it's just something to acknowledge and then to let pass. Not to cling to or worry over if you can manage.

    I suppose the key, in my view, is to be able to check in and discern if it is us who is causing it, an exterior force, or if it is just the natural rhythm of life. The first two we can work on, we can change our own way of thinking/reacting or we can eliminate that which does not serve us, clearing it from our lives. The third, the nature rhythm of life, is just part of the ongoing and never ending lesson of trust and centering and gratitude. So yes, cry when you need, but also welcome it and be thankful for the chance to check in and take stock and then, move forward into the next day, the next year. . . the next evolution of YOU!

    May the year ahead be filled with love and wonder Stacy!

    Big Crow hugs!

  36. A very happy belated birthday to you, Stacy! You're as young as you feel - and honestly I don't see any wrinkles. I love the natural look - I myself have stopped wearing any make-up many years ago.
    I hope your anxiety will pass. There are times like this when we feel restless for not knowing exactly why. I quite frequently go through them as well and they are very upsetting. Big hugs to you.

  39. I'm a bit late but I hope your birthday was great! I don't see any wrinkles, but since you say that it's a big birthday I'm guessing maybe 30? Although it could just as well be 25, I'm not good in guessing ages :-) I guess everybody who doesn't live in a cocoon feels anxious every now and then in these unsure times. Like you say: just breathe and trust, and know that you're not alone. Hope you're having a great week ♥♥♥
