Blogger Bliss at Rancho La Puerta

A few weeks ago I was invited to visit Rancho La Puerta, in Tecate, Mexico. I’m here this week as a part of an international group of bloggers to experience this incredible resort and spa. I am truly excited to share Rancho La Puerto with you as I’m inspired just being here. We met yesterday at the San Diego airport and boarded a coach bus for the hour-long ride to the ranch, just over the border in Tecate, Mexicao. The light at the end of the tunnel, on in this case, the resort at the end of the very windy… Read more.

How I Found My Purpose

When I learned that I was responsible for my own life – the whole enchilada – that’s when it got more meaningful, more fulfilling, more fun, more vibrant, more interesting, more purposeful, and more everything good – in spite of my kicking and screaming every step of the way. I learned it while I was engaged in a bit of seeking, as it were, which consisted of reading some bestselling new age spirituality books, taking a few classes, going to workshops here and there, and listening to some audio CD’s. When it became clear that everybody was pretty much saying… Read more.

You may remember I had the honor of interviewing the founder of Cirque du Soleil, Guy Lalaiberte for InspireMeToday.com. What… Read more.

Do Less, Do More-Recommendations From Twitter

I love how my blogs take on a life of their own. On Friday, I tweeted a saying that I saw on a wooden box at a museum in New York City last week. It read…  “Fear less, hope more; eat less, chew more; whine less, breath more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours.” I got a tweet right back that said, “Bark less, wag more”. Within a few seconds the idea for a blog was born. I then sent this request to Twitter: Pls recommend 1 thing to do less and… Read more.

The Whirlwind Tour: Interviews with “Rock Stars”!

I just returned home to Montana from a very productive trip to New York City and Las Vegas. Although my blogs are usually inspirational text, I wanted to share some fun photos with you today from the trip. I had the honor of interviewing some very inspirational people as future Luminaries on InspireMeToday.com. Additionally, I also interviewed these “rock stars” for my upcoming book, Embrace Crazy! Please allow me to introduce them to you here…. Please click on the images below for more! I’m glad to be home, but what an amazing week it was! Thanks to Mike, Lexxi, Scott,… Read more.

We Teach Our Children Best By Our Example

A few days ago I spent the morning with my friend Amy, a 45 year-old mom and her 12 year-old daughter, Sara. For more than an hour we talked about Sara’s dream to be a recording artist when she’s older. Both her mother and I encouraged her and told her that she could do anything she set her mind to. We supported her 100% with great enthusiasm. Interestingly enough, I asked Amy, the mom, about her own dream. Shyly, she told me that she’d love to be a writer and actually has a book or two in her closet that… Read more.

Embracing Crazy in New York

When is the last time you had a really crazy idea? You know what I mean… an idea that is so big it’s frightening, but at the same time there is such excitement in the possibility that you can’t wait to share it with someone else? Many times in my life when I’ve shared  an idea with a friend, I’ve heard, “That’s crazy!”  If you’re anything like me, you too have had this experience.  Those two words- “That’s crazy”,  have killed too many dreams and have literally stopped success in its tracks. But what if….. instead of running away from… Read more.

Abundance: How Much is Enough?

The most enduring teachings say things like, “To thine own self be true,” and “Follow your heart.” “The kingdom of heaven is inside.” “Follow your bliss.” “The answers you seek are inside.” All of these direct us inside. So, in order to connect with the inner guidance, it’s necessary to move into the pauses. Listen to the silence. See the invisible. We need to quiet down regularly, away from the external distractions, and listen, observe, sense, connect. And then move on that inner direction, checking it out and validating it from our own experience. We will either gain the desired… Read more.

You deserve to be happy – Take charge of your mood!

By Dr Michelle Gannon – a Psychologist specializing in Relationships, Wellness and Women’s Issues. She writes at Dr Michelle Gannon and Marriage Prep 101 I realize that times are tough for many people, yet as an optimistic person I will go out on a limb, and say, “You are responsible for your own happiness. You deserve to be happy… Take charge of your mood”. What does it really mean to be happy? When you think of yourself and your life, are you being the person you want to be? Are you living a life that brings you joy and pleasure?… Read more.

Twitter- It’s Not Brain Science, or is it?

Serendipity is one of my favorite things in life. I just received a telephone call from a Twitter friend, sharing how one of my tweets last week made her think bigger. With one little generic tweet, something triggered her to take action, resulting in a positive difference in her business. How cool is that! Just a few days ago I was on the telephone with my daughter asking for her help in finding someone who knows about the science of the brain. I’m writing a book and want to include information from a scientific point of view, but I don’t… Read more.

Structure As The Path To Happiness

I was chatting with a good friend the other afternoon and he was telling me about how his son had lost his cellphone and was a bit stymied about how to replace it. When you’re in a contract with a carrier, a lost phone can’t be replaced with another that’s subsidized and suddenly even the worst phone was going to cost $199, $299 or even more. Quite overwhelming for the boy. The challenge was to figure out how to pay for the new phone, because he apparently had his heart set on a pretty fancy phone with a slide out… Read more.
