You possess talent and skills that you haven’t even begun to discover, because it’s in growth that you will find true enlightenment.

Your Most Important Gifts

As a widow who has lost the majority of my family, I realize that life is the most important gift. We must use it wisely as life leaves oftentimes without warning taking with it all of the possibilities. People are next. Cherish every moment and be present with every person who feels special to you in some way and know that all people are special. There is only one race - the human race, and we are created equal. We all suffer regardless of age, race, educational background or income level. Life oftentimes is a struggle but we can choose…

5 Steps to Take Action

Take Action! So many of us wait for things to be perfectly aligned before we take action. I’m not talking about following a specific timeline that gives you the necessary steps to reach your goal. I’m referring to those who wait for things to be aligned just right before they make a move. We wait for the perfect time to get married. The perfect time to own a home. The right time to have children. The right time to start a business. The right time to take a family vacation. The right time to make a business decision. The right…

Are You Ready to Embrace Adversity?

Live your life in such a manner that it makes yesterday jealous. Always seeking, always hungry, always yearning for greatness. Attach a purpose to all that you do, understanding that it is on purpose that you are here. Never take for granted this purpose, by remaining forever grateful. Love yourself more tomorrow than you did today. Always strive to show yourself more love than you give others, yet never forsaking the importance of paying it forward. This will create around you a circle of love that will grow not only yourself, but also everyone that you encounter. Never underestimate the…

How You Can Choose Wealth Over Riches

I’m proud of my financial position in life, but contrary to what a lot of people may think, I never aspired to be rich. I wanted to be wealthy. It wasn’t always that way, though. I think there was a lot of fear driving me. Fear of being poor again and fear of going back to that impoverished life from my childhood. Being rich and being wealthy seem to be synonymous with success. However, there’s a big difference between the two. The main difference between being rich and being wealthy is knowledge. Wealthy people know how to make money, while…

Worthiness Will Definitely Come up on the Path of Spirituality

This topic is one that is bound to come up during each person’s path of spirituality: Worthiness. The deeper we go within ourselves, the more beautiful the internal world becomes. We tap into our purpose. We begin to understand what feeling good is all about. And even though this is all very natural: We are meant to feel good at all times… It is also new territory. The reality is most people have been conditioned into states of mind such as fear and worry – and sometimes these conditionings come from childhood. It’s almost as if we have to reverse…

5 Principles of Balanced Success

After having several successful careers, a marriage of fifty-one years, four children, and eight grandchildren, people ask how I’ve done it all. With hindsight, I see that I’ve always had these five guiding principles in the back of my mind. 1. When opportunity knocks, answer. Take every opportunity that comes your way, even if you don't have a clue how to do the task. You'll either figure out how to do it, or you'll fail and pick yourself up and move on. Either way you will have learned something. Remember, you don't learn to play tennis without hitting the ball…

22 Tips for Becoming the Best You

Don't focus on being happy, focus on being busy - so busy with work and people you love that you don't have time to ask yourself if you're happy. Find what you love doing, and then do it. Or if you can't do that, learn to love what you have to do. Meditate or learn to be alone with your thoughts for a few minutes a day. Be yourself, but strive to be the best version of yourself. Read at least one non-fiction book per month. Learn as many general skills as you can (specific computer software, building/repairing things, writing…

Ego Is Not My Father!

What is ego? I have found for myself that it is nothing but fear. It is simply a thought system we have mis-created. We have allowed it to separate ourselves from the Prime Creator (the thought of separation itself is an illusion). It keeps us a prisoner or slave to habits and personal thought patterns. It keeps us stuck in day-to-day life situations until we say, "Enough! I surrender all illusions about myself to the Holy Spirit." Ego blocks us from accepting our good because we do not feel we deserve our good or deserve to be loved. I am the Christ…

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.

Letting Go of Your Stuff

There is no right or wrong way to live. There is only life, experience, and the wisdom gained through living. But by nature, we are designed to seek comfort, become bored with comfort, seek adventure, and seek comfort again. It keeps us busy, gets us in trouble, helps us procreate (often connected with getting into trouble), and forces us to continue to experience life and gain more wisdom. Most of us tend to learn the hard way, for a while. But sooner or later we begin to catch on and learn what makes us happy, what keeps us safe, what…

There is No Repeat of Life – Live it Now!

We only get a one ticket admission to this thing we call life. Make the most of your time while you still can. Use it wisely. Experience it fully with eyes and heart wide open. See the beauty in the obvious, but do not forget the little things that go unnoticed. Take in the fragrance of the flowers in bloom as they are given drink by the early morning dew. Notice the artistry of the sky and the clouds that form recognizable images. Listen to the laughter of a child, still so innocent and unaware of the reality of the…

Live Your Truth, Fulfill Your Purpose

Are you living your truth or someone else’s? You are unique. You were created to live in this world, at this time. You were not created to become someone of someone else’s idea. You were created to fulfill a particular purpose unique to you for this period in time. Those of you living under the preferences of others are sacrificing who you are, who you were meant to be, and what you were meant to do. Knowing your purpose for this lifetime, you received inspiration to lead you to explore and gain the knowledge and expertise necessary to fulfill that purpose.…

Embrace The Journey of Life

God has a plan for all of our lives. We have to stop trying to fight it. You are a unique piece to the puzzle on the earth. Don’t apologize for it, but be proud in what He is through you. Embrace it. Wrestling with the Almighty just takes too long and is too frustrating. When you choose to blaze a trail, others will see you sparkle and they will be inspired to raise their own banners and walk forward in their own lights. We have to stop trying to compare our treks to those we may see around us.…

How to Transition From Cancer to Calm

In 2013, our dreamy life changed dramatically when my husband’s barber asked, “What’s that on your neck?” David saw three doctors and had six procedures by the time we heard the five words that rocked our world, “You have stage IV cancer.” The lump protruding from his neck was a malignant growth that had metastasized from the base of his tongue. Four days prior, our thirteen-year-old son was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. “What’s happening to our family?” I thought desperately, trying to make sense of it. Life was going along nicely, when suddenly our roles changed: husband and son became…

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…

Who Are You Willing to Be

We have more power to design our life than we think.We don’t control what happens. We can, however, control our response to what happens. Every moment…now, and now, and when tonight becomes now… is a choice point. Who are you willing to be? Courageous? Compassionate? Clear? What will you put on your TO NOT DO list? Checking your phone every 5 minutes? The choosing that enlivens us originates from a creator mind-set, not a victim’s. See your positive power. Sure, there’s negative power over others, but there’s also the power to and with. The power to create with others originates…

1 Easy Way You Can Find Purpose and Break Routines

By nature, humans find comfort in routine. We love habits, as they make life comfortable and cozy. Instead of having to confront the dreadful anxiety induced by facing the unknown, we can simply find a soothing rhythm and live within the confines of that comfort zone. Of course, there is a downside to living a robotic existence. When we settle into a life of complacency, it quickly becomes stale, and at best, we end up striving for mediocrity. How do we overcome that inclination and utilize our time on earth to truly live an awesome life? The answer is to remember…

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…

The Importance of Asking Questions

We spend so much of our lives seeking answers to others’ questions and to the Big Questions: Who are we? Why do we exist? Why do we die? What happens afterward? How should we live? How can we be happy? How can we give back? What does it all mean? It’s important that we give these questions their due, that we try to answer them for ourselves. But we must also strike out on our own. In contemplation of the grail quest, comparative mythologist Joseph Campbell wrote, “Where there is a way or path, it is someone else’s path; each…
