The Seeds of a Dream

So I have been comtemplating the idea of writing a book and getting it published.  I mean, really, truly focusing on getting it done.  For years I have wished and dreamed of becoming a published writer.  I always put it off because life got in the way (ie, job, school, family needs, time, household chores,Continue reading “The Seeds of a Dream”

Wealth in Health

Today I am writing about the one thing that is the most valuable thing a person can ever have and that is his or her health.  Without good health a person has nothing.  The wealthiest person in the world has nothing if they are not healthy enough to enjoy their riches.  The most talented personContinue reading “Wealth in Health”

Why Am I Here?

She walks into the darkness not knowing what to do. Shards of light shines down and she hangs onto them like tiny gems in a cavern. The Divine Creator tells her, “I am you and you are me.  Go forth and experience all that I have created.” “Will I suffer?” she asks. “Yes and throughContinue reading “Why Am I Here?”

Making a Home

I went to a house warming party the other night where the new homeowner updated the house with fresh paint and new floors.  The hostess was blessed with guests bringing her food and gifts for her new house.  This made me think that a house is made of floor boards, painted walls, light fixtures, andContinue reading “Making a Home”

Cleaning out the Closet

A cluttered mind is a cluttered life.  That’s what I discovered while cleaning out my closets (including my mental closet).  You know it’s time to unload the baggage when the To-Do list is long and the worry list is even longer.  As I sifted through the unnecessary wares of my life collection I began toContinue reading “Cleaning out the Closet”

Unplugged

Today marks a new year, which for many that usually means out with the old and in with the new.  For others it means doing things differently to get better results (ie., dieting, exercising).  While others, like me, venture out for new experiences (ie., hang gliding, rock climbing). Okay I don’t plan on riding theContinue reading “Unplugged”

Finding Clarity

Clarity, clarity, oh where art thou?  You could find clarity in the stillness of your silence.  The trick is to actually sit down long enough to allow it to happen.  Jumping beans of thoughts and flashing movements of this project and that never ending to do list will not give you clarity.  However, it mayContinue reading “Finding Clarity”

Be Selfish

Be Selfish.  That’s right, make yourself happy first.  If you are not happy then you will not be able to go anywhere or do anything to improve your situation.  You need to make your happiness a number one priority in your life before you attempt to reach your goals. A demanding job,  a needy spouse, whiningContinue reading “Be Selfish”

Take a Chance

Take a chance this week.  Life is fleeting by every time you resist the chance to do something about it to change the way you want it to be.  Stand up to your fears and get risky.  Your life begins when you take a chance. Life waits for no one and neither should you.  CastContinue reading “Take a Chance”

The Wall of Reason

When you want to change something ask yourself why do you want to change it?  You may have the best laid plans to change something significant in your life but it doesn’t matter unless you know why you are making the change.  It is important to recognize why you want to create the change inContinue reading “The Wall of Reason”

It all Begins with You

Waiting for your boat of dreams to sail in?  Hoping your train of opportunity arrives?  Wishing for someone to give you a break?  Sorry to bust your bubble but it all won’t happen unless you make it happen.  What you want in your life can only happen if you make it happen. Think of someoneContinue reading “It all Begins with You”

Sometimes Bad Things Happen to Good People Because Good People Need to Change

The need to change isn’t always apparent.  We get stuck in the routine of our lives so much that we don’t realize  that we need to change.  At times, we do realize we need to change but don’t know how to do it.  That’s when we are hit with something big; a huge negative thatContinue reading “Sometimes Bad Things Happen to Good People Because Good People Need to Change”

Destroying the Bully Within

There’s a phrase we have heard before that states, “We are our own worst enemy.”  We say negative things to ourselves that beats down our true inner beauty.  Our own self worth is kicked in the gut and dragged down to the ground by the bully that lives inside us.  That bully needs to be stopped and needs to beContinue reading “Destroying the Bully Within”

Stay focused!

This week’s challenge is all about staying focused.  Let your energies hone in on one idea all week.  That cluttered closet, the craft project you started months ago, or those broken things you tossed aside with some far off intention to fix.  Maybe it’s something you’ve been thinking about for sometime but haven’t found theContinue reading “Stay focused!”
