Self-Direct Play in Your Life.

“Children engage in such (free) play because they enjoy it–it’s self-directed. They do not play for rewards; they enjoy the doing, not the end result. Once they get bored, they go on to do something else–and continue to learn and grow.” -Sheila G. Flaxman

Adults can easily learn from children just as children can easily learn from adults. Let’s all learn from one another and self-direct play in our lives regardless the situation. Life is about having fun and what is fun without sharing it with one another? Therefore, let’s all play with one another in this thing we call life and let’s ALL have fun TOGETHER!! 🙂

Have a fun, playful day all.
Much Love Always,
Dianne

My Divine Animal.

All Rights Reserved. Photo copyright to Dianne Furphy, 2012.

I posted this picture knowing it is very special to me because I have noticed over the past several months this bird keeps appearing wherever I go. First I noticed it flying around as I was pulling out of my back alley way with my toddler in the back seat a couple months ago. Then I noticed this bird flying above me as I was at the playground with my child and partner just two weeks ago (The photo listed was taken by me, Dianne at Smith Playground, PA on May 25, 2012). I also seen this bird flying above me just this past weekend while I was at my partner’s football game with my toddler, niece and mother-in-law. This bird flies high above me, circling around, in a diagonal view point from where I stand. I seen it other times in the past too. While this past weekend, I seen it, I was staring at it while I asked my mother-in-law what kind of bird it was. She had no idea. So when the football game was over, as we approached our car, a random guy says directly to me, “Do you know what kind of bird that is? It is a Hawk.” Ask and you shall receive, aye?

Currently, this whole journey I am on, this spiritual journey of finding out Who I Am has brought me here focusing on living in the Now. My main focus is to find out what my true purpose on this earth is. I have one life, I believe we all are very special, talented and gifted beings; we just are not fully awake and aware of it…and I am determined to find out why I exist in this life we call reality.


So, now here I am. Now in this moment, I am writing this blog post in regards to this hawk that has been surrounding me; whether it be the same exact hawk every time; I do not know but I kind of “feel” it is. I also “feel” and believe this special bird is soaring the skies above me for a very special reason. I thank this bird for its company; for it is rather comforting.

Me being the curious person I am, I of course took the initiative upon myself to  do research on hawks and spirituality. The research I have found basically states that Hawks are messengers and that I am awaking to my soul’s purpose. Hawks are also known as “Visionary power, attention, leadership, truth, creativity, insight, and guardianship.” (Hawk, Spirit Meaning, Symbols and Totem, All Totems, n.d.). Also, other information I found stated that when I see this bird, it is trying to tell me something; to be more aware and open in that given situation and that I have a gift/talent that I am may not aware about yet. There is SO much information out there about such topic. Therefore, with SO much to learn about myself  and that every thing is connected in one way or another, I decided to piece together what this animal can symbolize and mean in my own personal life. I have linked together a couple of things that makes sense. All the encounters I remember with the hawk, I had a child/children around me at the time. (A playground, a sports field with families…) KIDS, KIDS, KIDS!!! Kids have been popping up in my life for a long time now. I have recently applied to volunteer at my local library with my toddler to help out with arts and crafts and story time. I have even more-so BIGGER plans with my very own volunteering work. Stay tuned to reading to find out how YOU can be a positive change in your community and how to support and be a part of Create What You Want.

Anyhow, I am really working on finding out as much as I can about myself, as I am sure most of us are. I look back and reminisce with my past and see how far I have grown and evolved. All of my life experiences are what I have learned from to become a better, healthier me. Life experiences are life learning lessons; it took me a long time to figure it out and live by it and now that I am, I am most grateful.

I thought I would share this wonderful experience and insight with you.  As I am sure you have many of your own questions and curiosities as I do. Any other information on this topic would also be greatly appreciated so please feel free to leave any comments and/or personal thoughts in the comment box below. I would love to hear from you; as we can all learn from each other. Thank you.

Much Love to all…

Dianne

“I think I could turn and live with animals,
they’re so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied,
Not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another,
Nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.”
-Walt Whitman, “Song of Myself”

Laughter is Key.

All Rights Reserved. Photo copyright to Dianne Furphy, 2012.

Play, have fun, joke around, even be silly–only as long as your being YOU and having at least one dose of laughter a day (or more). It is known that laughter is the best medicine for all. Therefore, share your laughs and pass them along. For laughter helps you remain in a healthy state. Laugh all you can, whenever you can. Let loose and even make others laugh. Simply pay it forward because you will be doing a job well done for yourself and humanity.

“When you have a heartfelt belly laugh, all parts of your being – the physiological, the psychological, the spiritual – they all vibrate in one single tune. They all vibrate in harmony!” -Osho

“The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.” -Mark Twain

Have a fun day filled with tons of laughter. 🙂

Much Love,
Dianne Furphy…

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND YOU CAN CREATE WHAT YOU WANT.

On this bright morning
That starts this new day.”

Sweet Day in May.

Could not have asked for a more beautiful day,
Trees, flowers, streams, green grass, and stones were my way,
Feeling the warmth of the sunshine of rays.
In this place that focused on the natural environment, I surely want to stay,
With my two boys by my side, I can forever play and put our time together on delay…
On this fine day in this sweet month of May.
I am most grateful…thank you, thank you as this day comes to an end, this is what I pray.

Hope every one had a beautiful day and have a much lovely, soothing night!
Love from me to you always,
Dianne
