Reflections:

While cleaning out my email inbox yesterday, I was blown away by the many connections I have.  I am loved, cared for, and blessed with many friends and loving souls in my life.

Each of my four personal email addresses has a different focus.  Initially, I am cleaning my writing email account.  With this address, I share my writing, save ideas, and foster new writing projects.  Trying to clean up this email address is tedious and time consuming; I never knew I had so many ideas that I saved, quotes that I collected, or dreams that I processed.  I really never knew.

I also never knew that most of my creative friends are quick to offer cooking ideas, beautiful songs, and sweet stories.  My creative/writing email is full of love, there are so many people in my life that give unselfishly of themselves.  At this moment, I am humbled that people nurture me as they do.  Writing in a vacuum isn’t possible.  When you share of your art, your writing, or your soul, people want to share of themselves too!!!

There are so many days, I feel alone in my little creative bubble.  What I learned last night is that while I may sometimes feel alone, there are many people that are there for me.  Patient individuals that are content to be a part of my life in any way that they can.  I am blessed to be surrounded by loving and thoughtful individuals that love me or care for me as the person I am; they value my creative energy and make sure I know that they are there.

Blessing flags represent what my friends give:
Love, Compassion, Loving-kindness, Peace,
Healing, Honor, & Justice

This fair-trade flag that can be purchased at http://fairtradejudaica.org/product/jewish-blessing-flags/; each flag represents what I found in my inbox last night. Every email was filled with so many of the blessings above.   My friends love not only me, but life and humankind too; they are generous people that walk gently in the world and give unselfishly.

Cleaning up my inboxes is proving to be more challenging than I expected.

The good news is that while I might not empty all 5,000 by next week, I now have approximately 200 less emails in my inbox than I did after yesterday morning’s purge.  Between yesterday morning and last night’s email purge/file experience, I am down a total of approximately 500 emails and 200 spams.  Yay!

Slowly, slowly – I am working towards my goal for less clutter in the email realm.
