I used to think...w I used to think when I was much younger that I was lucky. I also remember having big, bold, audacious dreams. Then...as time passed...my dream circle shrank in size. I became afraid to let my mind expand. I cut off the blood supply to my imagination and entered a room with … Continue reading Practice Asking: “What if…?”
As I pry my fingers off of all the hurt I've been carrying...some from perhaps when I was maybe two or three...the actual chain of events...vague...but the pain...raw and real...I'm thinking that we can only let go when we learn. I'm not suggesting painstakingly rehashing events. What I am suggesting is that we let our … Continue reading Let Down that Heavy Load
Often we need to take a step back before moving forward. Most of all we need to listen to what our soul is trying to tell us.

I am finally learning and understanding to be gentle with me. Lord knows how often I feel negative and act on those negative … Continue reading What it is to be Human…

Years ago, I heard a guest speaker at an event say: to know and not to do, is not to know. This phrase … Continue reading The Travesty: To KNOW and not to DO
Every day we need to recommit to our goals and dreams...to the contracts we've made with ourselves...our intentions....what we choose to continue, alter, begin or stop! At the seat of it all is what we are thinking...while we are doing. The story we are telling is far more important than any action we take. When … Continue reading Recommit to your Goals…Daily!

This message is clear and is put in a place where the person for whom it is intended will get it! Yet when we have a message we tend not to be so … Continue reading Are you Communicating or just Talking?
