Emotions are the energies that fuel thinking and choices in life.

Living Simply, Kindly, and Compassionately Despite Tragedy

Some lives seem riddled with sadness and even tragedy. Many live a life of grief and despair. And yet there are others who experience similar lives who somehow become stronger and decide to make a difference in the world. I believe we have total control over how we respond to things that happen to us. We can choose to remain a victim or, after we have worked through our grief, we can decide to come out swinging. I have had my fair share of sadness in my life – some from mistakes I’ve made, others from mistakes others have made…. Read more.

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.

Are You Ready to Dream Big?

Every day you wake up is the start of a new beginning, a second chance. You can choose how you want to spend your day – happy, sad, frustrated or angry.

Follow your dreams, your heart, your passion. Make something of yourself. Why should you not? Put your dreams out to the universe and it will conspire to make them happen.

7 Elements of a Better Life

We often make attempts to compartmentalize different elements in our lives, but it is best when we allow all of these elements to flow together into a rich tapestry. Hopefully, this piece will allow you to see how the integration of mindset, nutrition, movement, and purpose can lead you to your happiest and most fulfilled life: 1. Don’t ever make an attempt to “lose weight”. Instead, respect your body, and know that it deserves the best. Stay away from fad diets that demonize specific food groups, and instead go for organic plant foods that are high in nutrients. Your body… 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.

Want to change your life? Change the quality of your decisions.

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.

Tomorrow is but a reflection of today's thoughts.
Inside each of us is a passion flame – and whether or not it consumes us or fires us in the direction of our dreams is purely a matter of choice.

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. Yet though my mother passed away all those years ago, not a single day goes by without the reminder that she helped me become the man that I am today. Her strength, her love, her work ethic and her legacy live on through me, through the family I… Read more.

Trusting Your Magnificence

You are a magnificent being. Has anyone told you that lately? Well I’m telling you, you are. How do I know? Let’s just say I’ve had experience in that area. You may not feel like you are a magnificent being, but it’s true. Your personality is the outside of you and the magnificent being is the inside of you. All of the components to your personality, the enjoyable ones as well as the not-so enjoyable ones, are those you chose to experience this lifetime. They are what make you unique. A fool discounts them; a wise person works with them,… 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.
