Summer is in full swing and I am back with a treat for your ears. I encourage a dance move or two…or three!!
It has truly been a whirlwind season. As August begins, I am compelled to curate a perfect summer night’s playlist, but also sitting here wondering how it got to be August so quickly! This playlist is perfectly suited for a backyard canopied in white lights, citronella candles, cozy old blankets cast over chairs and singing insects.
Whether you’ll be taking in the night sky, hosting a backyard shindig or simply cooking with all the windows open (my favorite thing to do) this evening, turn up the volume and enjoy this second dreamy mix!!
As always, here are the two links to enjoy the Essentials (Vol. II) as you read the tidbits I’ve included to set the mood:
Hello, friends – new and old. I have got to tell you something!
I don’t believe in coincidence anymore.
I walk around wearing a 50 year old dress and a sleeve of sailor tattoos like it’s no big deal, but I’m afraid to talk about magickal moments?
The other morning, fate walked up and said hello to me. I mean to say, it was louder than ever – like, “HEY! Hey you. ELYN! Look and listen already, damn it!” I’ve always believed certain things were meant to be, I’ve seen the ‘signs’ as they were presented (whether I chose to listen or not), I’m very spiritual but had no real ground to stand on in that area. You might even say I’m very superstitious.
Now, when I say ‘the other morning’ I don’t mean yesterday; this happened a week ago. I sat with this magickal occurrence for an entire week!! I’ve decided, like I said already, it’s time to come out with it.
I want to talk to you about this amazingly simple thing, that has completely changed my life – Positive thinking.
I know, I know. This sounds so cliche! But I’m as serious as a heart attack, as they say. Stick with me.
I’ve been working on myself for the past couple of years. Of course, I wish I could tell you I’ve always had this tool in my back pocket, but I didn’t. I just didn’t get the whole, “happiness is a choice,” thing. So, of course, positive thinking seemed totally silly to me, too.
