Just by consciously focusing on positive thoughts, we are able to supercharge our dreams into being.
Life isn’t striving for Perfection, Life is Perfection in itself!
The mark I will leave on this earth will be a positive mark for others to follow and to share.
The key to success is to remember: it all starts with a dream!

Harry’s Perfect Moment, A Tale of Practical Enlightenment

It was a Monday morning and Harry swung his legs over the side of the bed. He knew something was different, but he had no idea that today he would have a “perfect” moment. Donning his cotton robe, Harry made his way to the kitchen and started his day like he always did by preparing breakfast for his wife and two young sons. He got out the usual supplies – knife, cutting board, bowl and fruit – and laid them on the butcher-block center island. Suddenly the morning took a new twist. There was a break in his routine. The… Read more.

You are magnificent. What makes you magnificent is everything you’ve previously believed is wrong with you.

Welcome Yourself Exactly As You Are

Welcoming means accepting yourself exactly as you are and also accepting life exactly as it unfolds. It is the ability to allow all of it, including all the parts of yourself and your life that you don’t like, and letting it all flow without getting hooked into the stories created by your mind. Welcoming is not trying to make your life any different than it is.  Easier said than done, right? I know it’s not always easy to welcome and accept life, especially your challenges, because you have been conditioned to continuously judge yourself and others. This is the inner voice… Read more.

Your outer reality is a direct reflection of how you feel about yourself.
What is the one thing that makes you want to get up on the table and dance? What do you ache for? How can you inject surprise, fun, and outrageousness in this very special day?

Do You See What You’re Missing?

My eyesight, or lack thereof, has always taught me lessons. Back in 2008 and in my recent book, From Type A to Type Me: How to Stop “Doing” Life and Start Living It, I shared my experiences of having poor eyesight before receiving my first glasses. I learned a lot about myself through my microscopic view of the world due to my near-sightedness. Then, once I had the right glasses, I began to see the beauty and interconnectedness of the world. Now my eyes are ready to teach me the next lesson. A few years back I received Lasik surgery. For… Read more.

Having fun is a pretty powerful way to start any serious relationship.

How You can Find Healing that Lasts

How would your life change if you trusted that your challenges are a part of your journey home – back to yourself and back to Life – instead of feeling that your challenges are here because you have done something wrong or you are being punished or God fell asleep on the job? What would happen if your illness, your difficult relationship, your demanding boss, your compulsions, and maybe even your troublesome dog were showing up in your life to help you heal? The healing you long for comes when you discover how to play the warmer, warmer/colder, colder game. Remember that… Read more.

Seek opportunities and experiences that invigorate you, those that are challenging, and that demand you show up as your very best self.

How You can Embrace Change

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the most responsive to change.” –  Charles Darwin So many people have a fear of change: changing jobs, changing relationships, changing cell phones, changing lanes…. The good news is, we are all born with only two fears: the fear of falling, and the fear of loud noises. These are quite obviously for our protection. That being said, all the other fears are learned. And whatever is learned, can be un-learned. Thus, we all learned (were taught) how to be afraid of aging, of riding a bike,… Read more.

3 Important Actions for an Awesome Life

You can have an awesome life no matter where you start; you just have to believe and do your part. No circumstance determines your result. It took me a long time to learn that, but now it’s as much a part of me as my DNA. Growing up in a physically and emotionally damaging environment, and spending the majority of my time alone, I arrived at adulthood a very lonely, socially inept, financially challenged person with low confidence and almost no professional or personal skills. The person I am today, after years of development, is a stark contrast to the… Read more.

Life is a window of opportunity and appreciating each day, whatever it may bring, is the key to fulfilment.

Don’t forget to dream! Making wishes and having dreams is where inspiration starts.
Choice is a human right.
Remember, everyone is just trying to be happy and protect themselves, no matter how ill-chosen their words and actions may be. They are just trying rescue themselves from their own fear and darkness.
The more love that is expressed, the more love there is to go around.
