Now more than ever we need to relax.

I know this is a tall order but start by breathing slowly…count to four as you take a deep breath through your nose, release more slowly through you mouth to a count of six. I also use music and exercise to help me relax. I am currently listening to my favorite singer Andrea Bocelli’s duet “If Only” with Dua Lipa. His voice washes the stress from my body.

Please take care of yourself now. We need to remember that this too shall pass. We will create, work, love, travel and prosper again. I know it is hard but we are strong! Hold your family and friends close, read good books, binge watch shows, do puzzles, meditate, eat well, have a glass of wine, be thankful, have faith.

Love you all. XOXO

Inspire others by living your best life

What makes you happy? Family, friends, work, home, travel and my dogs are the things that make me happy. I have committed to being grateful for something each day. I am grateful for sleep these days with a new puppy who rises well before the sun, I am thankful for my comfortable bed.

These are my goals, hopes and dreams for 2020.

1. EXPLORE MORE & LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY!

2. EAT EVERYTHING IN MODERATION.

3. READ, WRITE, COMMUNICATE & MEDITATE MORE.

4. TRAVEL MORE…TO ROME AND BEYOND!

5. EMBRACE LOVE!

6. THE BIGGEST GOAL…LIVE TO INSPIRE!

My goals for 2020 are simple. Enjoy life more, and stress less! Live in a way that inspires people to enjoy their own lives more!

Please share your goals by commenting on this post! Thank you for stopping by. Best, Celia

Love more, live more

This year, I am simplifying life. Less is more. My New Years’ resolution this year is to love and live more. To be present in my life and to be grateful every day for all that I have. I am so blessed to have such a large and wonderful family. My husband and I are both the youngest of five so our families are huge! I am taking the next year to enjoy every day and to find at least one thing to be grateful for.

What are you committed to this year? I wanted to pick something I could stick to. I wanted to choose a positive goal, what is more positive than love?

Ok let me know your thoughts by liking or commenting on this post.

I wish you all great happiness.

Best,

Angels are Everywhere

Angels have always been important to me; they represent love, light, heaven, family, God, and peace. I was drawn to them even as a child. My mom took all five of us to church after church in Rome and Florence. I think those early memories were what make angles and churches resonate with me. Now that I am housebound, I have my pictures, and I travel in my mind back to all of these beautiful places.

Rome and Lisbon are two of my favorite cities. I love looking at these trips and looking forward to my next trip. I am hunkering down now and staying home, but as soon as I get my wings back, I will fly.

I hope you are all well, and sheltering in place with your little angels, mine are not so small but I am enjoying them. Stay safe & healthy, and remember angels are everywhere. XOXOXO
