A Smile is a Smile…

Bertha…gave me an affirmation this morning…and…I’m not quite certain…what it means…or where it’s going…but…what I do know…is…that…resistance…is futile…so…here it is…

When in doubt…smile…

Hmmm…I had to ask for clarification…and…a second cup of coffee…

She…of course…was happy to comply…with the clarification…I had to fix my own coffee…anyway…she told me…that a smile gives the appearance of…confidence…she went on to say…that…I have the answers that I need…to all my questions…in my heart…and…that…the reason I can’t always hear them…is that…I doubt them…sort of like the Wickersham Brothers…from…Horton Hears a Who

So…here it is in a nutshell…the more I smile…the more confident I appear…the more confident I appear…the more confident I feel…the more confident I feel…the more I’m able to hear my heart…and…the more I hear my heart…the less Who-vians…get boiled in…Beezle-nut oil

Okay…okay…I get it…I’m smiling…was there ever any doubt

Yopp!

Heaven on Earth…

I saw him this morning…crossing the dry creek…in my backyard…I rushed for my phone…in order to capture him on film…I had seen him earlier in the weekend…but…didn’t get a picture…didn’t want to make that mistake again…

Bertha…laughed as I was hurrying…reminding me…that…he…was a turtle…he wasn’t going anywhere…fast…I had a bit of time…

Of course…she was right…he was only a few steps closer to the shrub beds when I returned…unfortunately…the pictures didn’t turn out well…and I haven’t been able to determine his exact identity…

But…not to be deterred…I did look up the symbolism of the turtle…just to see…if he had a message for me…and…I believe he did…

Seems as though…in myth…the shell of the turtle…represents…heaven…and the underbelly…represents…earth…which was interesting…but…I didn’t think a whole lot about it…

Until…

I got an email…that was talking about…experiencing…heaven on earth…essentially…living from your heart…living a life filled with love…

Hmmm…not a coincidence…I’m certain…

Rather…once again…Bertha…was reminding me…lead with my heart…and…the life I desire…will follow…

I went in search of…Tommy Tomato Turtle…to get a better picture…but…alas…he was not to be seen…perhaps…his work here is done…or…perhaps…he’ll hang around as a reminder…for me for years to come…I hope that’s the case…
