    1. Thank you, Dan! Normal, fyi, is boring. As I told those women what I said in this post how hubby said, “That’s not normal.”, I told them I don’t want to be normal, just who I was meant to be. And that’s it. Besides, everyone’s definition of normal differs. Who is right? LOL

  1. Wild Women of the Woods. There couldn’t be a better group for you, Amy.

    *When something is important enough, you do make time for it.* So very true.

    I have experienced that thought/manifestation phenomenon before, sometimes in truly miraculous ways that I still can’t believe. They’ve mostly been related to travel, which is the conduit which has been the most open in my life. It’s funny how it hasn’t seemed to work in other areas. The thought can have absolutely no attachment to it at all. And I believe that patterns related to a particular desire must be cleared, so the desire can be crystal clear rather than muddled by a feeling of lack. I am so happy for you, Dear Amy. 💕❄️

    1. I know, right, Julie? It’s as though a custom made group materialized and voila!
      As for desiring a group of women such as this one … I’ve wanted this for years. Yet it did not happen. Life is NOT a genie. That is why I wrote I am a Partner with life. You know this. The time has to be right, there has to be room in your life, and many times, you have to do work in order to clear up the OLD that is blocking the new.
      There are many things I would love to have in my life now, yet deep down, I know that it truly is not the time. First things first. Between my back injury in ’93 and my willing sacrifices I makes for our cats, my life outside of this home has dwindled. I am determined to begin to create a bigger life in tandem with Life, but …. timing is of the essence. And of course, it is my responsibility to heal all those things that are blocking my dreams. (smile)
      Thank you for being happy for me. I’ve waited a long time for something like this to happen. Oh for the JOY!!! Much love to you, dear friend!! (((HUGS)))!!! xo

    1. I agree, Tim. SMILING!! And thank you about my snowscapes. I may have turned into a liar about this being the finale. It snowed here and the forecast has a lot of the white stuff in it. Right. Now it snows. I jinxed myself! LOL

  2. I’m so glad for you, Amy, that you’ve found a group of women to slosh through the woods with every week. You all must be a hearty bunch, and I know you’ll enjoy your friendship for many years to come. (Is that Chestnut Ridge? I think I recognize that arch.)

    1. Yes that is Chestnut Ridge, CM. Good eye! I am so excited about this group. They are honest, know how to laugh and joke, think deep thoughts, and they are outright beautiful all the way around! The woman I spoke to the most walked her dog and was the same age as me. I am deeply grateful for this opportunity.

    1. Aw, Sonia, you would fit right in!! It would have been so cool if you did live closer! If that is something you would like to have in your life, send those thoughts to the All and let go. I am SO grateful for this group of women. It’s been a long time coming!! xo

    1. Yet as I discovered, Erika, there has to be room inward in order for new to be welcomed. What I didn’t say was I was saying for years how I would love to be involved with like minded people ….. But recently after doing major inner work, and one day feeling very strongly to state to the Universe my wishes, then it happened. When it does happen when the TIME is right, however, it comes fast! I’m still amazed, believe me! xo

      1. That’s another proof that the like energies connect. We can always tell the level of our own energies with what/whom (and how) we are connected. If we want to change it we need to change something inside in the first place. It is such a simple law actually but our awareness often takes time to follow… lol

  3. That law of attraction Amy is the most incredible thing I have faced in my travels. It always amazes me that in going through something the very thing required turns up to push my buttons AND I am the exact thing required for the second party. Absolutely amazing. My dad was exactly what I needed to imprint and begin my journey, as I was for him to test those fears he had ingrained.
    What a magical world.
    And speaking of magic, I LOVE the shot of the snow on that tree through the archway. Just beautiful dear lady!!! xoxo 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 🦘 🐬 🐳 🌺

    1. It is a magical world, Mark, and once we become aware of how magical it is, we develop this sense of awe and deep deep gratitude. I’m still just amazed at the sequence of events that unfolded effortlessly!!
      That shot through the arch was my documentation of my “pee break”. LOL True. When I’m out in the forest for hours there are times a bush does come in handy. Teehee …. And when I saw the view this arch afforded I just had to take a shot. Much love your way, dear friend!! xo

      1. lol. Of course the universe gave you such a magic shot, it just had to nudge your bladder to get your attention 😂
        Still, great work my friend, thank you for sharing that lovely white world 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 🦘 🐬 🐳 🌺

  4. I’m happy you found fellow wild women!!! I must confess that I read this post with a huge smile on my face. 🙂 I am a loner by nature and I am blessed with the best tribe that is always there for me. Oxymoron? Perhaps… Or maybe the important people just stick? I wish you many magical adventures with your fellow wild women of the woods!

    1. Oh, Zia, if only you knew how tremendously huge this group of women is for me. I’ve lost so much social life due to so many factors and now it seems slow but sure, social aspects of my life are being rebuilt. This time around fyi a whole lot better! I can see you with the big smile on your face!
      I am like two people. I require alone time. And I really enjoy being with people who are light in spirit and are “different”. This group of women are different. YAY!
      Thank you so much for the well wishes. I am really excited about all that happened!! Much love to you! xo

    1. As I now know, Eliza, there has to be room within in order for new to happen. There are times we have “old” blocking the new. When we rid ourselves of the old, that is when new is free to come in. (smile) xo

  5. Wild Women Of The Woods sounds such fun. 😅 You have reminded me of my darling mom who once told me that she never passed up an invitation to do something with friends. She could do the housework and other chores any time, but an invitation turned down is an opportunity missed and life is too short for that. You got some beautiful photos too. 😍

    1. Yes, Sylvia, Wild Women of The Woods is perfect for me. I’m going slow with this, as the other women adjust to my presence. I’m the “newbie” and while I go slow I will be observing who I tend to gravitate to. I also agree with your Mom 100%!! Life is so short and with that said, dust bunnies can wait! So glad you stopped by to enjoy this post. May you have a great Saturday!! xo

  6. Great story Amy!! Sometimes all we have to do is ask – it’s how I got the job I have now. Sometimes I get caught up in what I think is best for me, but when I turn it over the the universe – magic can happen! Just like your story – life can really work out when you release it and believe. Awesome! Hubby is quite funny – “normal people!” Love the wintery scenes – beautiful!! Have a great weekend! Much love, Donna

    1. I’m reading this great book right now, Donna, that says “prayer” is feeling as though what you desire in your life is already manifested. It was like that when I stated out loud to Hubby about how I would love to be involved with a group of like-minded women. Even though I have wanted this for years, (which I didn’t state in this post), evidently both the timing and my conviction and then following that up with listening to actually go to that park, did the trick. I still am in awe of how everything transpired and so so quickly! Life has been doing that of late …. it’s as though that last chunk of inner work I did, something huge fell away in order for allow the NEW to manifest.
      And Hubby …. yeah that normal comment is so typical. He of all people should know by now I am the furthest thing from normal, whatever that may be. LOL Everyone’s definition of normal is different! I’ve insisted ever since a child to be different and to find who I really am!
      May you have a great weekend too! I used my new light last evening and can’t wait to show everyone the magic I created. (smile) With that said …. I have a lot to do in order to go the gym this morning. Much love to you and BIG HUGS!! xoxoxoxo

    1. Aw, thank you, Colleen! Several people have told me they love that picture of the arch. FYI …. that was a documentation of where I had to stop to use a “bush” for a “pee break”. LOL Yep, this woman while in the woods for hours at times has to use a bush. It’s either that of wear Depends which is something, sorry, I will NOT do! There are no restrooms open during the colder months. When I gotta go I gotta go! Teehee ….
      And YAY for you that you have snow! So do we! I managed to create some magic last evening …. those images will be coming. Have a great weekend!! Much love to you! xo

      1. 🙂 I’m so glad I went. Because in came the rains and washed the snow away 😦 I knew it was going to happen so I am super happy I went. I will have to get ice cleats. I usually go where I don’t have to worry if I have them or not, but yesterday I was in an area with cliffs. And I can’t fly. 😉

    1. I’m proud of the fact I am not normal for that would mean I allowed the outside world to tell me how to be. Nope. Not me. I plan on meeting these women again tomorrow. If all goes as I intend it, I’ll be there with ice cleats and walking sticks. (smile) Happy Monday to you!! xo

  7. I love how you’re doing a new thing, and especially since you told the universe what you wanted.
    I feel like life is kinda river-y, all the flow and change in direction. It’s good to forge new paths. And so nice to have something to look forward to on Tuesdays!

    1. It’s nice to introduce “new” into a life even when you don’t know how to quite fit that “new” in. Can’t explain how I feel inwardly … there is this newfound confidence that yes this is mine and then don’t give that another thought, knowing it will show up. Hope your weekend is going great, Joey! xo
