I Am Me

  1. That is such a sweet and uplifting story. That’s wonderful you are inspiring young women. Your beauty radiates, and while you don’t work out “to be seen”, I’m sure it would be difficult for anyone to take their eyes off of you.

    Many years ago when I was going to a serious body building gym, I usually ended up working in with the serious body builder women because we often lifted similar amounts of weight. I was working in with one woman, and when we got to pull ups, she warmed up with ten pull ups, then she put on a belt and hung a five pound weight on it, and did another ten pull ups. While she was hanging, stretching her arms, she asked me to add another 5 pound weight and she did ten more pull ups. I was so impressed with that woman. It’s very difficult for women to build up their lats do be able to do pull ups, and here she had me adding weights. Fortunately, she didn’t mentioned anything about wanting to look like me.

    You photos are fantastic. Beautiful colors and the birds are amazing. The hawk got breakfast or dinner.

    1. Tim, you honestly put tears in my eyes with your comment. To have been given such Gifts as these in a time we are living in, I am so very blessed. My story proves that when we come from a place of Love, peace, and calm, what unfolds is at times is like “pinch me!”. To procure inspiration in others is such a high compliment and I am so honored.

      And then your story about the woman with the pull ups blows me away. I KNOW how hard those are and here she is adding weight as well. Those days are well over for me and as I said just yesterday, I work with what I have. I remember the sensation of power as I did pull ups but by any means I was never able to add weights. That is impressive!!

      My photos ….. thank you so very much. The hawk I believe was on lunch as was the bluebird. Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll be over when I can. Busy morning here ….. weeeeee take a deep breath, Ame!!! Sending you much Love and I so encourage you that no matter what madness comes rushing from all sides bombarding all of us, stay high and be happy!!! xo

  2. Hi Amy, what a wonderful, light filled story and I could feel the joy and gratitude flowing through your words as you recounted your interactions at the gym. What a great feeling to be appreciated and it’s obvious that your energy is radiating out to those on the same frequency. Keep doing what you’re doing my friend, you’re inspiring and such a great role model. As for your photos, the collage and birds, they’re exquisite. Big hugs and much love your way xx 💜

    1. Thank you, Miriam. I had hoped that my inspirational story would get people to understand the greatest power we have is to be ourselves. To have others lately recognize me and respect me, is truly one of the greatest Gifts I have ever been given. I flow and am so uplifted when I run into people who have open hearts and a sound head on their shoulders. I rejoice that even though we all have been through hell, there are still some of us who are open and free in spirit. We all have choices. I understand it is a process to feel free yet it is so sad to see so many shut down.

      And a great huge thank you on my photography. Now that things have gone bleak Nature wise, I really have to put on my creative cap. Sending you so much Love!! Hope you and hubby are doing well!! xoxoxo

      1. I’m so proud of you Amy. And I couldn’t agree more, we need to stand up and be counted, to be seen and sadly many can’t. But I want to let you know that in my home city of Melbourne today more than 300,000 people stood up and marched peacefully for our freedoms. Thank God. Finally the people are rising!!! Huge hugs my friend and yes, we’re all good here. Feeling the light and love very loudly today. xxxx 🙏

      2. I stood up to my family doctor, Miriam, and in so doing spoke truth, truth she refused to acknowledge. In fact, she completely blew me off and in turn, I sent to her my thoughts ….. may God have mercy on you when you finally open your eyes. By doing what I did, I showed her how I am standing strong with Integrity and will stand for freedom no matter what. I’ve been watching Australia and I rejoice. Know the state that I live is THE major one to begin huge protests here. YES!!! I’m covered in goosebumps for I now know the tide has changed and so much will begin to happen all for the GOOD of this world!! Sending you so much LOVE!!! I’m feeling the Light and Love so very strongly too! xo

  3. Wow, all such stunning photos, Amy!
    I love how you brought up this example to inspire others only because you are who you are. That is everything everybody needs to do but also everything everybody should do. Being themselves naturally and doing what they do because it comes from within.
    Big hugs, Amy!

    1. Hi, Erika. Thank you regarding my photography. I love what I do! As for my example, to be an inspiration to those in their 20’s when I’ve seen more then 6 summers, is something I’ve not experienced before. This is however, what my heart wants …. to inspire, to teach, to encourage. Working out as I do, is very involved and if others are watching me to learn, I rejoice. You also have to know yourself, love yourself, in order to radiate the “vibes” of confidence and knowledge. All of us, once we step into being who we truly are, will discover miracles, such peace, and a way to live we never dreamed possible. Big hugs right back!!! xoxoxo

      1. There is nothing to add. Once we become one with who we are we are at home in us and whatever we do comes with strong energy that is not questioned. Would you allow me to quote you with this sentence: “Once we step into being who we truly are, will discover miracles, such peace, and a way to live we never dreamed possible.”
        Thank you for the hugs once we step into being who we truly are, will discover miracles, such peace, and a way to live we never dreamed possible.🤗

      2. Yes of course. But I noticed a word missing and so this is the corrected quote, “Once we step into being who we truly are, we will discover miracles, such peace, and a way to live we never dreamed possible.” THANK YOU, ERIKA!!

  4. Wowww as I am marvelling through one leaf after another, I thought what can be way better to be called award winning and not these? – and of course not unexpected that I was stunned in awe of your perfect timing – oh how Mother smiles at you, I totally believe 💛✨

    Your story from the gym – absolutely yes just by being you, you offer so much to the world, and such ease and grace surely for then to find the comfort to share with you, how they are inspired by you. I am so happy and grateful for you.

    1. Oh wow, I got a wowow from you, Prag!! THANK YOU!! While I was editing those leaves, I kept telling my hubby I honestly don’t know how I did these. I was in awe of me!!! And then when I captured those birds on another day, to be in the right place at the right time blew me away! Those birds were relatively in the same area. Coincidence? I think not!

      My dreams are coming true ….. to inspire, to teach, to encourage. To be able to be accepted by a generation 40 years younger then me, I tell you true, that is quite the compliment. Again with this I am so full of gratitude and I am literally blown away! Prag, what has been unfolding in my life of late is one miracle after another. I am in awe of me and LIFE!!! Sending you so much Love!! xo

      1. Magic truly awakens for you Amy – for coincidences and synchronicity are norms for those awake 💛😊
        It is amazing precious to be accepted and inspire those 40 years younger. When I read that I truly felt like that is my hope in how I live and I am so blessed to have you show me exactly how it is done. Your gratitude and acknowledgement for the simplest in life is most precious to get to witness 🙏🏼💛

      2. Prag, when you do the work on yourself, healing is essential(!), and align with the Universe what happens just happens. I’m not doing what is happening …. I have guidance to for example go over to someone to start a conversation and then Spirit shows up. You are embarking on a journey that fills me with such JOY for I know without doubt you will be fulfilling a great destiny. Embrace it. Know you are being guided and trust that guidance. You will achieve wings that will have you soaring high as an Eagle. (((HUGS)!!! xoxoxoxo

  5. These are glorious Amy, they touch what you really see. An acceptance of life…and ourselves. Exactly what love is. And a beautiful discovery of being appreciated by others…just by being yourself. Again, that acceptance of you is what you give out, not the mad worrier and stress head. And yes, we do have our days, and yes, we do have ‘our’ days ❤️
    Great post my friend, may there be many more discoveries, inner and outer 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    1. Thank you, Mark!! I honestly could not believe when I was editing those leaves that I did them. Something so huge is unfolding within me that it just wants me to cry like a baby and dance and shout for JOY that I AM ME and I FOUND ME!

      I will be starting to teach what I know in body building starting next week. I have one young lady all ready and eager to begin. She has plans on becoming a surgeon so IMO she will need a very strong outlet to let steam off. I’m giving her that means. My Intent that this will blossom and soon I will be teaching many young people on the correct way to work out. To be my age …. more then 6 summers …. and have young people respect me and then not only that admire me, I’m literally blown away. This is the first time in my life I’m getting recognition and I did so without even trying but just by being me. That is so cool!! Sending you so much LOVE!! xo

      1. Finding that place inside is a beauty all its own Amy. And to give from that place is that unconditional we have found. And as you just said, is now attracting accordingly. Well done and enjoy the journey, it has much to give ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

  6. It’s always nice when others pay you compliments (I’ve been told). Your leaves are very beautiful and I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many different autumn colours. Somewhere in Scotland there is supposed to be a mountain where the Forestry Commission planted the trees with the same coloured leaves all together, and in autumn the hillside is like a painter’s canvas, covered with differently coloured brushstrokes, all made of full size trees of different spicies. I should have written down where it was!

    1. John, I’ve lived more then 6 summers and for the first time in my life, I’m gaining respect and admiration from those much younger then me. My heart just wants to inspire them and to teach them too. That is happening.

      As for that tale from Scotland, my heart just sighs in thinking of it. I LOVE a full colored Fall forest. I haven’t seen one of those in a few years here with the weather being so nuts. Hope you are having a great weekend. xo

  7. Usually, we don’t know what we do that inspires others, and I fear others never know they inspired us. I’m glad these things were revealed, Amy. Your photos are beautiful. I hope you have a great weekend.

    1. Dan, it is so incredible when we are just being who we are is when we at times (not all the time) find out we are inspiring those around us. What a feeling!! It is turning out I am planning starting next week to teach a young woman how to train at the gym correctly. To pass on to the young generation my over 40 year experience thrills me just to think about it. What an honor! And thank you on my photography. Truth ….. I am in awe of me. Hope you are having a great weekend!!! xo

  8. The leaf pictures look amazing but on a bit on a sad side to me. That is nature and I can’t reject it too much. But your bird pictures just lit me up. Wonderfully captured the moments of cuties and a magnificence.

    1. YC, saying goodbye to the leaves for me is really a sad occasion and yes I grieve. But that is what Mother does and so in saying goodbye I welcome a new Season. As for my bird pictures I was in the right place at the right time. Believe me, my jaw dropped. Thank you so much for stopping by!! xo

    1. Take care during these times, Barbara, for I too end up on the couch some days. I know when to rest and when to inspire and when to play. Spirit aka the Universe is working very strongly through me and the frequency is so high that yes I must take rest time to recover and adjust. But when I’m in that flow OH how I fly so high. I would very much LOVE to stay there, but my nervous system would burn out, so I’m getting more helpings slowly over time. Sending you so much Love your way!!! Hang in there!! We’ve got this and my “Guidance” is telling me we are just about at that place we can finally exhale. xoxoxoxo
