Validation

    1. Susan, I am sure that you know by now, that in this world, when you stand by yourself to say I will not be anyone else but me, this world usually does not react positively. OK, yes there are cases where this is not true, but in my experience, it has not been an easy road. I just will not compromise me. Not any more. I was forced to do so as a child, but no longer. 🙂 Love to you! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

    1. Irene, please don’t feel obligate to leave comments because I linked your blog with one of my posts. I really understand how valuable time is, so I just wanted you to know, write when you can. I’ll know you’ve been here. (((HUGS))) Amyy ❤

      1. Thank you Amy. At the moment I use my PC more than in the last Winter, where here were too cold to sit. Now it is almost too warm 😀
        I comment, when I find the time and thank you for your link, much appreciated. ❤

      1. Hi Amy. Sorry for my short yesterday answer about the flower name. I received you question on my way to the car after my job was ended this is why I sent you just brief answer.
        Looooong time ago in my grandparent’s and parent’s gardens soil was not spoiled with fertilizers and pesticides. Everything was clean and organic. We took this flower, cut the end of its tail, and sucked sweet and tasty nectar. Then we realized why bees like these flowers so much. 🙂
        Have a nice day!

    1. Melissa, the image you viewed was very intentionally played with. I took my light reading from the yellow stem and should have taken it on the orange flower. As a result the orange came out far too bright, almost over-exposed. I used 5 editing rooms to get this image to look as it does now. And I am SO happy I took the time to do so. That is usually beyond what I normally do. Yet, this flower would not let me go, and so I worked on Her until my Heart said YES!!! So glad you enjoyed Her! Love, Amy ❤

    1. Yes, this is very true, Dan. In looking back, when I was young, I had no clue what I wanted to do with my Life. I was not one of the fortunate ones whose parents encouraged a child to be who she is. Gradually I figured it out with Life as my Most Important Teacher. Now I do not even know how to be anyone but me. For this I smile! Have a great day! Love, Amy ❤

  1. Per usual, your words accompany the perfect image. I always look forward to your posts, but especially on Wednesdays when I could use the morale boost and encouragement. Thank you for posting such powerful words and images! xo Melissa!

    1. Ah, Melissa, my Heart does smile so to hear I have helped you in my own way with your day. I am hanging onto these words as well, my friend. I’ve been addressing a serious issue, and now wait for those who are involved with this issue, to call me, as I was told this morning they would. I stood up for what is right, and right now I am not sure how the letter I sent was taken. If wrongs are seen in a place that could cause life threatening ramifications, is it not right to say something? To speak up? Or in my case, write a letter? I am concentrating on my breath and being in my gardens to help pass the time. I pray your day and what you have had to face or am facing, has turned out in your favor. Bless you, my friend!!! Hang in there! Love, Amy ❤

  2. Very powerful indeed.

    For me , this shows up as ” Being Authentic” which is really being and acting consistent to who I am for myself and who I am for others. The pathway and access to such authenticity commences from being authentic about one’s own in-authenticates and being willing to articulate them. That part of us which can observe these inauthenticities is our authentic self.

    1. Dearest Shakti, I know I had been following you but again WP has struck and I was no longer following. I refollowed and I have this to thank for, because if you had not come here today, I would not have known it.
      Please excuse the late reply. Life has been hitting very hard balls in my direction and have been called away from here in order to bring order out of chaos. Bless you for your glorious comment! I am learning how to be authentic to myself, in all areas of my Life. When I am in the BE moment, the NOW, I am in Bliss and feel just like a kid. Again, thank you! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤
