B is for being and B52's

"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."      -- Oprah Winfrey

I have a artist/blogger friend from Arizona that lives her life by just "being". For the record, she has stage 4 throat cancer but it does not have her. She literally lives in the moment whatever that might be.

Her moments may be doing beautiful art...she loves giraffes. Her moment might be being sick from the chemo. It might be writing a blog. Whatever her state of being is at any particular moment is enough, she is grateful for them.

She lived this way before she was diagnosed with cancer and she still lives this way.  She is a beautiful soul who challenges me to "be" too. I am thankful to know her.

My music for today is the B52's. I like this particular song, which of course is one of their most popular. I like that it is also just hanging out and being too.


  1. "Be" is simple and essential advice. Be who you are. Be well.

  2. Be this be so much fun... hehehehe ..... bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb

  3. I wish more of us could live in the moment. I know I don't. I think too much...plan too much...obsess too much about what I am to do, instead being in the moment. Although, that does follow after thinking, planning, and obsessing. lol I admire your friend and wish I were more like her. I'll say a prayer for her.

  4. Wonderful topic. I like the focus on being, it's a good one that some forget at times.
