Balance

Why do "we" as people, so often forget to appreciate the things we have in our lives, big and small?  It seems that life and it's lessons are certainly not on a linear path(I guess this should be obvious??).  Lessons keep needing to be relearned.  Things always go in cycles.  I am constantly amazed by life(all of what it entails) and the dichotomy of it, how it is all so simple, yet mind-blowingly complex.  I think that ultimately, everything comes down to balance, yin and yang sort of thing etc., from the most complex to the most base.  I think it is the answer to every problem in some way.  The trouble is, it seems, that things can always, and at any time go out of balance fairly simply. 

This, makes me wonder if wisdom is really just about getting better at re-aligning when things go off course.  Can we ever really get to a place where we are always balanced, or don't often need re-learning of seemingly the most basic of life's lessons?  Can a person get to this point in a lifetime?  I wonder if anyone really gets to a point where they always remember to use every moment in a way that they are proud of, in a way that if given the chance, they wouldn't change or take back.    I wonder all of this because I get frustrated with myself when I feel like I have slipped backwards or regressed in ways that seem to happen over and over again.  Like, for instance, I have a really hard time through the winter...every winter.  Every fall I think I am prepared and in a "good" place.  Then slowly weird winter me creeps in and I don't even realize the moment when this happens or really that it even happens until Spring comes and I feel so good.  Then I'm like hey, I haven't been good.  A part of my consciousness seems to hibernate in the winter.  Just checks out.

Anyway, I am so thankful right now for the sunshine and how nice it feels to have it on my skin again, how lovely it is to hear the birds chirping all around me, how romantic and light it feels having the windows open in the house and the warm breeze pouring through the house.  I have been really letting the moment sink in again.  I forgot what that felt like for a little while.  Like usual.  But you know what all of this contemplation brings me back to?  Balance.  In everything.  I wouldn't appreciate this sun nearly as much and the sound of those chirping birds so much, if I didn't have the long, cold winter every year.  See....balance.

Here's a picture of Ella from yesterday:



Also, this is my favourite song of the moment, "Be Okay" by Ingrid Michaelson.  I'm not sure why I have never heard of her before.  I got one of her albums last week and I am totally loving the whole thing.



Happy Easter long weekend!!!!

Very interesting questions and thoughts Tricia. I too am guilty of not taking every moment as what it really is...a gift. Thank you for the reminder.

Being a celebrity isn’t easy. If we were to itemize the celebrities who featured in their own sex tapes, we wouldn’t know where to begin and One night in paris where to end. Of course, any publicity is good publicity for most of the film stars. However, for some such sleazy antics are nothing but shameful. And, why not? When Paris Hilton Nude one has a much classier way to make a living, a fake sex tape is nothing but a disgrace. And Katrina Kaif’s porn video is an apt example. So, even though top class actresses paris Hilton nude don’t need to venture into such dangerous territory, it doesn’t take much time for people to term such accidental videos as a desperate publicity ploy.

Heaven's Rage is the story [U]discount tiffany jewelry[/U] of a retired helicopter pilot named Richard Tate who is found [B]buyers of tiffany jewelry sets[/B] murdered in his apartment; the most likely suspects being four women from Tate's past -- three ex-wives and his college lover. Homicide Detective Ian Buchanan must interview all four women to determine who killed Tate, however the more he learns, the more he sympathizes for the [U]replica tiffany jewelry[/U] women and not the victim!


Upon finishing up with the initial crime scene portion, Heaven's Rage is then split up into [U]tiffany jewellery uk[/U] four main sections detailing each horrendous relationship Richard Tate had [U][B]fake tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] with the women in his life. We learn that Tate (appropriately nicknamed Dick by the way) is a disturbed man [U][B]best website to buy discounted tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] with severe issues stemming from his childhood and just like Detective Buchanan, we are appalled by [B]baltimore tiffany jewelry[/B] Tate and of the way he treats each woman. I found myself feeling genuinely happy [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany rings[/URL][/B] that someone murdered him for the novel's sake, and became emotional in sympathizing with each suspect!

The flow of the novel is superb because it's [U][B]fake tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] got the "I-can't-put-it-down!" quality, with perfect transitions and breaks in [U]knockoff tiffany jewelry[/U] all the right spots. As a reader, the pleasure and value of Heaven's Rage is being able to identify with each of Tate's "victims", and we find [B]knockoff tiffany jewelry[/B] that we love to hate Richard "Dick" Tate along with trying to identify the murderer.

Being an avid murder mystery reader, I believe Heaven's Rage may [U][B]authentic tiffany jewelry monthly promotion[/U][/B] have been more impacting had there been more concrete clues scattered throughout the novel in regards to determining the murderer's identity. The largest draw and allure of crime and mystery novels is being able to apply [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany[/URL][/B] the author's clues to solving the murderer's identity before it is revealed to us. Although the murderer's identity is indeed surprising, Heaven's Rage does not provide readers with [U]3tiffany & co jewellery[/U] enough clues to solve the mystery on their own.

I personally enjoyed Heaven's Rage because of my familiarity [U][B]3tiffany & co jewellery[/U][/B] with the military lifestyle (being a military brat myself) and having lived in the locations featured in the novel including Colorado Springs, San Diego, and Coronado. On the other hand, you won't need to be familiar with the above attributes to enjoy [B]discount tiffany jewelry[/B] Heaven's Rage and better yet, it will appeal to all genres of readers! Heaven's Rage is evidence that Tiffany Craig Brown has amazing talent [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany earrings[/URL][/B] hands-down, and as a reader you won't be disappointed! No matter what your taste, you'll gain something from Heaven's Rage whether it be satisfaction from revenge or even being able to relate to nasty divorce and custody battles, among many other real-life experiences this novel [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany earrings[/URL][/B] brings to light.

As y'all might have noticed, I will do whatever it takes to [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany earrings[/URL][/B] weed out the most popular and chic jewelry around, even it takes traveling to [U][B]tiffany jewellery[/U][/B] very warm, beautiful areas like the island of Siesta Key in Florida. In fact, I'm even staying an extra few days here [U]pandora jewellery[/U] just to make sure that I absorb as much information and style as humanly [B]tiffany bracelets[/B] possible (either that or I'm simply not interested in journeying back to the cold tundra that is New York City). Either way, this is the best way for me to [B]pandora bracelets[/B] report back to you all the excellent styles that are pervading the fashion scene for the [U]tiffany london][/U] spring and summer of 2009!

If any of you saw the 2008 romantic comedy, Fool's [U][B]pandora[/U][/B] Gold, I'm certain you found yourself frantically Googling Kate Hudson's Palm [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany engagement rings[/URL][/B] Tree Necklace to find out where you could get one just like it. The palm tree necklace was popular last year, and is still flying [B]pandora uk[/B] off the shelves today. There truly is something appealing about this shining sterling silver and cubic zirconia necklace with its intricate palm tree design. Of course, we're all aware that [B]tiffany sets[/B] the palm tree necklace that Kate wears in the movie is the real Tiffany & Co. version, which is made of diamonds, but unless you [U][B]tiffany sets[/U][/B] are also a multi-millionaire like Kate, you probably will also stick to the inspired [U]tiffany & co][/U] version.

On top of various forms of palm tree jewelry, I have [U]pandora[/U] found a bevvy of starfish, seahorse, and turquoise and coral-colored jewelry in the many boutiques and shops that Siesta [U]tiffany engagement rings][/U] Key boasts. Look for two-tone starfish jewelry as a big hit this spring and summer, as well [U][B]pandora bracelets[/U][/B] as the Tiffany Inspired Anchor Necklaces, which is another fan-favorite. It also incorporates a [B]pandora bracelets[/B] sterling silver and cubic zirconia design that is nautical and airy for the [B]tiffany charms[/B] warmer weather.


Michelle is a member of the Mademoiselle Jewelry [B]tiffany co[/B] team - a company that was founded on the principal that jewelry is art. Mademoiselle Jewelry specializes in [U]tiffany jewellery][/U] unique jewelry, Tiffany Inspired jewelry and sterling silver jewelry. Each piece of jewelry is hand [U][B]pandora uk[/U][/B] selected for quality, uniqueness, and creativity. Mademoiselle Jewelry also carries jewelry lines specifically [B]pandora bracelets[/B] designed for men and children.

Now 09 Christmas is just around the corner [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany & co[/URL][/B] and people are all busy buying presents for their families and friends. Then [U]knockoff tiffany jewelry[/U] what kind of presents should we buy? Many of us may [B]discount tiffany jewelry[/B] choose jewelry, for their elegance and quality. And [U][B]discount tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] what's more, jewelry has very high preserve value. However, there are [B]best website to buy discounted tiffany jewelry[/B] so many brands of jewelry and which has the highest reserve value? The following [B]3tiffany & co jewellery[/B] are the top 5 pieces of jewelry with high reserve value.


Mont Blanc of La Dame Blanche is a platinum ring with [B]3tiffany & co jewellery[/B] beautiful diamonds. These rings represent the classic beauty. The ring with black jaspers [U]replica tiffany jewelry[/U] among diamonds shows some kind of energy, while the other one with only pure diamonds [U][B]discount tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] has the beauty of silence. These two rings are very suitable [U]discount tiffany jewelry[/U] for couples.

Many people may know the leopard Cartier, which was the [B]cheap tiffany and co jewelry[/B] symbol of Duchess Windsor. During that time, Duke of Windsor, in order to [U][B]cheap tiffany and co jewelry[/U][/B] show his love for his wife, asked Cartier & Co. to design some special kind of jewelry for his wife. And [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany uk[/URL][/B] Cartier designed a brooch for Duchess Windsor which was leopard-shaped. This [B]tiffany jewelry store[/B] was the first time Cartier designed some jewelry [U][B]knockoff tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] according to some kind of animals. And later, the leopard became [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany bracelets[/URL][/B] Duchess Windsor's symbol and this series of jewelry became the masterpieces [U]tiffany jewellery uk[/U] in Cartier history.

The first one is Ribbons Tiffany which was designed by [B]best website to buy discounted tiffany jewelry[/B] the famous designer Jean Schlumberger. The diamond in the middle weighs 128.54 carat. It was engraved [U][B]tiffany jewelry boxes[/U][/B] from a huge yellow diamonds, weighing 287.42 carat, which means half of the [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany earrings[/URL][/B] original diamond was discarded. What's more, the diamond of Ribbon Tiffany has 82 facets of cut while the [B][URL=http://www.pandorajewellery.uk.com]pandora jewellery[/URL][/B] traditional Tiffany diamonds only have 58 facets.

When we buy something, we are always [B][URL=http://www.pandoraforyou.com]pandora jewellery[/URL][/B] thinking that it had better never become devaluated. The one piece that never loses [U][B]tiffany co[/U][/B] its value is always what people want most. Sometimes, the one [B]pandora bracelet[/B] piece would raise its price [U][B]tiffany bracelets[/U][/B] with the rise of money. Here is recommended the pieces that [B]pandora jewelry[/B] would always be treasured - Tiffany. The watches, bags, bracelets, necklaces. There will always be a classical piece in all the categories [U]pandora bangles[/U] of Tiffany.

First comes to the tank watches which [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany co[/URL][/B] are the favorite of a lot of people around the world. Of course, just like other [B]tiffany co[/B] kinds of watches, Tiffany watches have both man and woman [U][B]pandora bangles[/U][/B] style. No matter what kind of style [U]tiffany jewelry[/U] or color it is, the tank watch always has its classical features. The tank watch is called one [U][B]pandora jewelry[/U][/B] of the very important objects in the world.

The watches have the [B]pandora bracelet[/B] unique shape and "favored by all" watch bands. The mixture shape of geometry [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffanyjewelry[/URL][/B] and art gives the tank watch its lasting value. Women with the [U]tiffany pendants[/U] watches look more professional and modern [U]tiffany earrings[/U] while men with the watch seem more [U]pandora necklaces[/U] approachable.


Besides the Tiffany bracelets and bags, something [U]pandora necklaces[/U] else from Tiffany is also among the piece to be treasured, from rings to bracelets, from necklaces to [B]tiffany charms[/B] brooches. Some of them might be relatively cheap while some [U][B]pandora necklaces[/U][/B] of them might be expensive. However, all of them are worth treasuring since [U][B]tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] they would never devaluate as a classical [B]pandora jewelry[/B] piece.
