Another Dream Come True

I have fantasized about walking through a vineyard more times than I can count. My fantasy became true today! One item checked off from my bucket list!

I must confess that I have felt jealous when my friends talk about their vineyard experiences. I have researched countless vineyards across Ontario and Quebec and drooled over the photos and the experiences from the visitors. Each summer (for the last 6 summers), I have had it on my list of things to do but somehow never got to it. What is it that draws me to a vineyard? I believe that it all started from reading romance novels when I was in my teens. The couples who walked through the vineyards were always in love and the vineyard seems to be a perfect place to walk and celebrate their love. Some couples even got married at vineyards. I also love wine and grapes. So if you put it all together my attraction to vineyards can be summed in three words: romance, grapes and wine!

This is another re-affirmation for me that we simply need to keep on reminding ourselves of the things which we want to experience in this lifetime. The earth is our school as much as it is our playground. Whatever we can imagine has the potential of becoming our reality. Keep your visions, dreams and ideas alive by constantly revisiting them. They may not happen right away but don’t lose hope – as long as it is in the vortex, it is only a matter of becoming aligned for the manifestaion to happen.

Here are some photos to enjoy. Being in nature is the best thing for the spirit.

What is on your bucket list? Do you need to create a list of the things you wish to experience in this lifetime? Start today and go after each one!

Do you have a mindset which will make you gasp when beauty touches your soul?

I make it a daily practice to look for miracles, opportunities and the simple pleasures of life that sometimes show up unexpectedly!  I have a mindset to find joy in the ordinary and make moments extraordinary by seeing them through the eyes of my soul.  Little blessings add great pleasure to my day and I often find my heart bubbling with joyful music as my senses become more and more immersed in its natural home of gratitude.  How blessed I feel at the end of every day to be part of this amazing universe, the beautiful souls  who I meet in my daily journeys  and the thousands of angels that dance all around us, urging us to let go of our anxieties and love our planet unconditionally.

Our lives are busy and chaotic with much to get done at the end of every day.  The price of not meeting our obligations can be high and this leads to a high level of stress. However, we can claim a lifestyle of less anxiety by consciously shifting our MINDS and EYES to see the beauty around us, through our souls. Have you ever found yourself gasping because something is so beautiful, so inspiring, so dynamic, so alive, so fun, so exhilarating, so “WOW!”

The quickest way to expand our souls is to find beauty that speaks to our soul frequently.

Here are a few things which have brought delight to the eyes of my soul.

Look at this flower below… isn’t it just perfect!  I couldn’t take my eyes off it.  Every single petal looks perfectly placed. Nature is so divine! How more beautiful life could be if we can all embrace that divine perfection in all things around us!

On my way to the office yesterday, I  found GRAPES!!!! They were growing over the house of the owner of a sandwich deli and I was completely blown away that right in the middle of Ottawa, I found grapes! To stumble upon such treasures lifts my spirit a hundredfold… I skipped all the way back to work!

On a hot summer day, a cold, cold, cold beer is so delightful!  I completely enjoyed this Mills Street Organic beer in the Ottawa Market. Don’t rush home after work… take a few minutes to enjoy sitting on a patio somewhere and just soak in the sun and enjoy the buzz of people around you!

A good pizza is still a classic for a fun party!  This one was delicious with the beer 🙂

Look at this rack of bikes… what a great idea to make bikes available us to ride around the city! Just hopping on one in the middle of the day can re-energize you completely!

Cluster of flowers

A field of black eye Suzans right across from my workplace!

Doesn’t this tree hold hundreds of stories?  It sits along the St. Lawrence River, Upper Canada Village and if it could talk, I can only imagine the stories that it would share of love and war.

And the fun part at the end of a day was just hugging the little bear at Sugar Mountain!
