Begin Your Maiden Voyage Here

My dear mermaid friends,

I have curated this b~log, and what at first glance seems a typical lifestyle blog you will soon comprehend is not just another lifestyle blog. I have spent two decades creating this concept in which I took an idea initially from Benjamin Franklin and swam with his sense of what makes for an all-encompassing, balanced, mentally healthy human being. My blog is from head to tail, a transformational, all-encompassing b~log.

I have taken my life experiences, aspects I adore, and techniques I have used to manifest and caramelised them into what is now my lovely landlocked life. Along my voyage, I seek to inspire other landlocked mermaids.

Begin your little voyage here as a way of structuring your navigation throughout my blog.

The most popular pages are located on the sidebar to the right. However, I wanted to explain the categories section to carry you to what interests you most.

I have given each quadrant a sobriquet {nickname} so that when you see these dimensions at the end of a tagged post, for example, you will know of what each intelligence is comprised.

In my teens, as I was learning about time management from Stephen Covey's book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, I became vastly enthralled with habit number seven, which was essentially renewal and balance, called Sharpening the Saw. Benjamin Franklin also used this guiding philosophy of time management based on self-improvement concepts. They are for time management and an overall lifestyle of balance in all aspects of a persons framework.

The four quadrants are all-encompassing in the composition of a person's life. I have also chosen to add the category { The Carter Settlement Bequest} to make your selections of interest in my ongoing projects, creating and documenting The Carter Settlement Bequest much easier in navigation. If you'd like to participate in supporting The Carter Settlement, please sign up for Patreon. You will have a whale of a time. 

As is my blog, I am an ever-evolving person, and I want you to know I am learning and growing. I am so joyful you are here with me.  
I have since assigned new names to the four human dimensions to create a magical approach to my motto, "Take Joy!"

”Obtaining Your Sea Legs”

Obtaining your sea legs means learning balance in the four bits of intelligence of a human beings natural state.

Here are my curated four dimensions, and I'll explain each:

The Art of a Victorian Mermaid Life / Live ~ Physical
To maintain and develop a body we love, we must create it using physical fitness. The requirement to live is our physical need; food, clothing, shelter, economic well being, and health. A scant example: wise nutrition, regular balanced exercise, proper rest, relaxation, stress management, prevention thinking, and beneficial eating.

The Art of a Victorian Mermaid Love / Love ~ Social/Emotional

To make social, emotional, meaningful connections with others, we must correspond with our heart. Self-knowledge, self-awareness, social sensitivity, empathy, and the ability to communicate successfully with others is essential. The requirement to love is our social need to relate to other people, belong, love, and be loved—examples: Friendship, spending time and socialising with others, making social and emotional, meaningful connections.

The Art of a Victorian Mermaid Master / Learn ~ Mental
Our ability to analyse, reason, think, visualise and comprehend corresponds to our mind. A scant of this ability include continued study, education, self-awareness, learning, reading, writing and teaching.

The Art of a Victorian Mermaid Soul / Leave A Legacy ~ Spiritual.

Our soul's aspect of meaning and connection with Infinite Intelligence/God/Source and leaving a legacy pertains to the heart. A few scant examples of this are commitments to keeping promises, trustworthiness, educating, following our conscience, self-evaluation, spending time in nature, expanding spiritually through meditation, music, art, and appreciation. To leave a legacy is our spiritual desire to have a sense of meaning, purpose, personal congruence, and contribution to the world.
When we live cognizant within the four dimensions, we function at full capacity as a landlocked human. These components will allow us to possess the keys to our underwater treasure chest.

I'm so delighted you're here!
