How to Avoid a Mid-Life Crisis: Set Your OWN Expectations

We’ve only got one shot at this thing called life. And yet, all too many of us tend to give it away to living other people’s expectations. All too often, young people spend the first two decades of their lives absorbing their world’s expectations for them – figuring out what their parents and communities think they should be doing. They internalize those dreams, those visions, those goals. And then, they spend the next several decades trying to fulfill others’ expectations of what their lives should be like. And then, sometime on the approach to middle age, they become surprised that… Read more.

Take Risks, Make Choices, Create Change

If I could leave one piece of wisdom to the people on this planet before I go it would be that we always have a choice. We have a choice of not only what we put in our mouths for nutrition but also what we put in our minds and how we live our life. So much emphasis is placed on exercise and physical health, and that is indeed important. But we have to remember our emotional/spiritual health as well. We must choose to only accept positive thoughts, positive self talk, and remember with every exhale we have the ability… Read more.

5 Ways You Can Stand Up to Challenges

I started writing inspirational poetry for people 30 years ago. It wasn’t because I was a master of the English language; it was because I heard the poems when people would tell me about things in their lives. I didn’t pay much attention to it at first. But after the first hundred you start to notice that there’s something more going on. Over the years I’ve written poems for people facing just about every challenge imaginable. I’ve seen the same themes repeat themselves. For anyone facing challenge in their life, here are 5 things I’ve found to be true for… Read more.

Invite the Lightning Bolt of Change into Your Life

There is a moment when the dirt and the dust rises up in your life, maybe it is abuse, lack of money, lack of kindness, whatever it is. There is a turning point when you stand still in time. Everything stops. It is very quiet. You say, this is going to change. You become a radical demand for change in your life, and in that moment, the world shifts. It is a glorious shift into the light when you know you’re knowing, again. When you stand in the brightness of you. This is you that everyone else always knew and you… Read more.

Making Choices with Love

I’ve learned that I regret not so much the choices that I make, but the choices that I don’t; not so much the things that I’ve done, but the things I haven’t done. Not so much “mistakes” made, for there are truly no mistakes, only opportunities not explored. And there is the seed of growth and development in each of these. I’ve learned to allow myself to become, more and more, the witness and the witnessed, the seer and the seen, the observer and the observed. And I’ve learned to do this with a minimum of judgment. Although not with… Read more.

Choosing Your Response to Challenges

We all inevitably face challenges in life. Situations that rock us to the core and challenge us to keep moving forward. I ask YOU the question, “If tomorrow wasn’t promised, what would you do for today?” My mother’s death, 11 days before my eighth birthday, left a cavernous hole in my universe.

Her strength, her love, her work ethic and her legacy live on through me, through the family I… Read more.

Make a Big Impact with Integrity

Integrity, as defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, has three distinct qualities: 1) firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values: INCORRUPTIBILITY 2) an unimpaired condition: SOUNDNESS 3) the quality of state of being complete or undivided : COMPLETENESS Although integrity can be defined in many ways, I believe saying what you mean and meaning what you say lies at its core. So, why is it critical to embody this little word called integrity? I will share my story. I am the daughter of immigrants with little more than honesty, determination and commitment as the demonstration of integrity…. Read more.

Participating in Your Own Rescue

When people ask what I’ve learned from the experiences in my life I have to smile. What always comes to my mind is faith, accountability, courage, forgiveness and compassion. I have learned perception is everything, And, most of all participating in your own rescue is not an option. It’s a necessity. My life has been an amazing adventure from the very beginning. Some may hear my story and say, “How did she survive”?

Become Aware

Before you can achieve peace or happiness in your life, you must become aware of yourself. This is never an easy task as it is much easier to recognize the errors of others rather than take responsibility for our own errors. You must become aware of what you say and how you say it. The words you choose, your tone of voice, the expression in your face and eyes. You must become aware of what you do and how you do it. Always pay attention to details, as these are the little things that will make a BIG difference. Honor your word and the promises you… Read more.
