There has surely been a lot news reporting in the outside world, in the global world. Unfortunately, too much of it is not uplifting and is downright depressing. How many massacres have occurred this month alone?... Ukrainians are still fighting for their country and freedom... Inflation continues to climb. On and on it goes.
But I won’t leave you with those thoughts! I know we cannot keep our heads in the stand, but there is good news out there to lift our spirits so that we can shine our light, helping to heal the world.

So here’s some good global news:
Where once thousands of rusted barrels oozed out industrial slime, and pesticides, arsenic, paint, and heavy metals ran along the ground, now lie tranquil forested ponds full of fish, insects, and amphibians. Flowers visited by birds, bees, and butterflies all grow along the borders of this now thriving ecosystem
Now isn’t that more uplifting?!
I have good news on a personal note; it revolves around making a change, having the courage to make a change. I had been “pounding the pavement” although I already had a job. However, I needed and deserved a more fulfilling one, and yearned to honor myself with a role and work culture that feeds both my intellect and my spirit. Well, I think I found it!
Most of my job experience has been in the financial services field, but last week I started a job at a highly respected research university. In this organization, people are appreciated, respected, listened to, and supportive of others. There is a life-work balance, and the work is right up my alley—including utilizing the WordPress knowledge I’d garnered over 10+ years. Once I closed my business, I thought I’d not make substantial use of WordPress again, so I am delighted that I will be! My eclectic work and life adventures have paid off! I am so grateful.

I clearly feel the difference in my soul, spending eight hours’ a day sharing my talents and skills; exercising my brain as I get oriented and learn; and, working in a warm, supportive, respectful culture. Not surprisingly, this contentment and joy has already positively impacted other areas and relationships in my life. In such a space, I am nourished into being a brighter presence in all my interactions, helping to raise the world’s vibration and increasing the good news.
The world so desperately needs healing. May you feel contentment and joy in your soul and help others to do so, healing this world one being at a time. It all begins with you and me. Love.
As explained by Naomi Judd in this video from years ago, there is an ancient Indian legend about a boy and his grandfather, who by night, would watch over their kinsmen in the form of an eagle and a wolf. The Judds share it in this video, which from what I can tell, at least parts of were filmed in beautiful Sedona (where I lived from 2009-2015).
