Self awareness…


medi3I still remember the day that I first became aware of the space in between my thoughts and emotions. It felt like, if all of a sudden I got disconnected from everything else around me. I will admit that at first, it felt different and very uncomfortable, at least in my mind it did. I was so used to living life always thinking, looking outwards and suddenly everything around me just stopped moving. I began experiencing life as an observer rather than being in it myself. It took me a while to learn and realize that what I had just experienced was the beginning of a new chapter in my life; the beginning of a true relationship with myself, with life, with GOD. Like I said, it wasn’t a comfortable feeling at first but once I realized the truth and let go of the uneasiness the experience gave me, it felt like I had finally just found “home”. I then decided to continue practicing and embracing this “self awareness” experience through meditation and by just being alone and still. And when life gets challenging and busy and I fall back to my old unconscious self, which happens quite often:-), I remind myself to slow down, relax and re-connect with “that space”; the place where I find peace, regain balance and become one with all that is, the place where I find true love. I really hope you all enjoy this post as the inspiration came from a very personal and intimate place in my heart:-). Have a wonderful week my friends! Blessings to you all, Ms. Jeannie:-)

The LBD…


Hello everyone! I have been missing for a couple of days but I am back in “the picture”, literally:-). I had a very busy and emotional week. My daughter graduated from high school and the entire week was booked with end of the year banquets, ceremonies and of course, graduation day!  Today I wanted to brag about the advantages of owning a LBD. Although you may think the LBD is for evening wear, which may be correct depending on the style and fabric, the one I am wearing is a piece that can serve different occasions. It will transform, just like a chameleon, based on how you accessorize it. This one in particular is from H&M and is made out of a thick and durable jersey fabric that can be machine washed and only cost me $24.95! Aside from the price and material, what really caught my attention was the “retro vibe” of the style and its versatility. If you like the dress, the link below will take you the H&M online store (to this dress in particular). Hope you enjoy this post and if you do, feel free to share:-)  Have a great Friday evening!  My love and blessings to you all, Ms. Jeannie.
