Fuel Your Gratitude With Faith

Exactly how does that Bible verse go? Is it "in everything give thanks..." or is it "for everything give thanks..."? I have to be honest and tell you that I don't always feel thankful. On nights that homework with my daughter turns into a 3+ hour ordeal, I don't feel thankful. When I was told that my daughter had autism, I didn't feel very thankful. When strangers in stores and restaurants gave us angry stares because my daughter was too loud or too busy for their taste, I felt defensive and angry, but not thankful. God expects us to cycle…

Living in Gratitude

Operate from a place of gratitude, positivity and selflessness. There is always something to be grateful for. I look at each experience in life as a chance to learn and grow as a person. I am known for taking a day-old batch of lemons and making a kick-butt pitcher of lemonade to share with everyone around me. I work hard to find the positive aspects from each experience that life throws my way. In 2004, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and I've since learned to appreciate the little things in life. You won't find me complaining about doing the…

5 Principles To Lead A Fulfilled Life

1. To learn anything, you cannot be afraid to ask questions. This fear no doubt harkens back to grade school, when other kids would poke fun at the kid who asked for clarification on something. Unfortunately, most people don't grow out of it, fearing others will think them simple. The reality is, while everyone is an expert at something, no one can be an expert in everything. If you don't ask, you won't learn. Ask questions until you are satisfied you understand the answer. This may be the only opportunity you have to learn. Don't miss out on the experience.…

All Is Welcome

Some of the most important things to me are… To be authentic. Just be yourself, love yourself, and everyone else will love you. When we love ourselves it spills over and makes it a lot easier to love everyone. We get the feeling there’s only one of us here. To be grateful. Opening our eyes in the morning and being alive on this beautiful planet is already a miracle worthy of dedicating the day to thanks and appreciation. Once we start, there’s no end to the gifts to be grateful for. To be generous and available. Living in gratitude puts awareness on…

What Matters Most (Poem)

There’s no right answer, to what matters most. The heart of each of us holds a special choice. What matters is living fully, in every possible way. Live like you mean it, like there is no next day. The answer lies within, deep inside your soul. Find those secret places, take a flashlight when you go. Shine down upon them, get still and really see. You will feel a spark inside, that fills you and helps you be. Play and dance and paint it out, until you light a fire. Raging brilliant flames, for your true heart's desire. Allow what…

Waking Up to Gratitude

I have a beautiful friend named Marsha, who has been married to Harry for over 40 years. Marsha says, "When I wake up in the morning and realize I am breathing, and then I hear that Harry is breathing too, then I just know it's going to be a good day." Since Marsha shared her morning ritual, I have taken on a similar attitude. While still in bed, before I move a muscle, I cast a joyful anticipation of all the possibilities the day holds for me and I give thanks for the opportunity to live it. As I move…

3 Lessons for Improving Your Life

A few years ago, I was given a glimpse of what eternity must be like: the intense, pure, twirling, dazzling, pale turquoise light I saw during a spiritual healing, behind my closed eyes, penetrated my soul. I wanted to remain in its presence forever. This amazing light represented divine love to me. It confirmed my belief that beyond this world is another realm where all beings go back to the Source we all originally came from. The beliefs I held prior to the episode with the light were profoundly altered that day. I can tell you this: You are fully…

10 Truths That Will Change Your Life

1. If this were your last day, what would you want to be experiencing? How often do we spend our days recounting our hurts, how we were wronged, what we don’t have, what is stressing us, and how we were disappointed? Choose instead in every moment to experience joy, love, happiness, laughter, connection, and creativity. 2. Pain comes from expecting a dog to be a cat. A dog is going to be a dog. Accept people for who and how they are, not who and how you want them to be. In doing so, both of you will find release,…
