Mighty Pine at Sunset

Mighty Pine at Sunset by Beth Sawickie

It was a cold, cold night – a day after a snowfall.

The horizon began to glow.

This mighty pine stood strong and singular against the colorful night sky.

Blizzard Birds by Beth Sawickie

Birds of the Blizzard

It’s January 26, 2015 and we have the beginnings of a blizzard here in NJ.

The birds seem to know it too and they’ve been out in search of food often.

I couldn’t resist bundling up and heading outside to spend some time with them.

Just needed a few things first … 2 pairs of pants + ski pants, 2 shirts, 1 fleece, wool socks, heavy jacket, scarf, hat, gloves and snow boots..  that’s all 😉

I’m very fortunate that all these gals and guys were just outside my back door!

I could hear the wind moving through the trees as the fine snow blew through the air.  Along with the birds chirping and ducks quacking.

I don’t know what the two above birds are called – do you?

That’s all so far.

We’re supposed to get many more inches of snow overnight.

I look forward to spending more time in the snow.

Let go of the tizziness by Beth Sawickie

Drop the Tizzy! Just Be and Just Breathe

Let go of the tizziness by Beth Sawickie

Ever have one of those days when things are just in a tizzy?

Everyone is running around, it’s rush, rush, rush!

In a hurry and getting nowhere fast!

Gotta get out of the house QUICKLY – Now, Now, NOW!

It’s gonna snow – Gotta get milk and bread – HURRY!

Gotta get to where I’m going NOW! Everyone is driving too slow! Ride their bumper, beep the horn, pass ’em!!

What IS the rush?

Seriously – why?

Does getting all worked up in a frenzy really help anything?

Does it make you feel good?  How about those around you?

It makes me feel ill.  Just totally yucky!  I don’t like it one bit!

It’s times like this that I remind myself to just be and just breathe.

Tweet It!

Those are the two most basic things that we are here to do.

Be

  • be where you are now – NOW is all we have anyway.
  • be present
  • be yourself
  • be happy!

Breathe

  • the automatic and often un-noticed function that keeps us alive.
  • inhale slowly and deeply filling up your entire insides.
  • exhale just as slow and let go off all the “tizziness”!

Get yourself centered and re-connected to your true nature – your true self.

Put a smile on your face 🙂

Now ask yourself… What is really, truly important?

Probably not most of the stuff you were wrapped up in 😉

View from the Southern end of Long Beach Island looking towards Atlantic City at sunset – New Jersey.

This was taking on January 25, 2015.  The day before a major blizzard was to hit the area.

This photo was the reason I was soaked up to my knees!
