From Survive to Thrive

What matters is living life fearlessly from your authentic self by embracing happiness and love. You have an option in every moment. You can suffer—from worries, stress and anxieties that are woven into the fabric of everyday life—or choose empowerment. Breathe deeply, dance wildly, sing to the sparrows or indulge in hilarious laughter. Take brief respites from your endless list of tasks and drop into stillness. The spacious silence is a profound place to reawaken your intuition, creativity and life force. Instead of reacting from a jumble of emotions, develop inner calmness and shift from survive to thrive! Even in the…

Want to Make A Difference? Find Your Passion

Do you use your talents, knowledge and passion to inspire and help others? Begin with gratitude. Reinvent yourself. Everyone can find their passion and do what they want to do. Whether it's helping someone, inspiring people or making a difference in the lives of others, you can do it. Be grateful for what you have. Not for the material things, but the lessons learned in life, the adversity that made you grow stronger, and the continual falls that brought you to the road of success. I always dreamt of how I could make a difference but didn't quite get it…

The Valuable Lessons I’ve Learned From Dogs

Everything I've learned so far I've learned from dogs! I love watching dogs run after seagulls on the beach. They set their sights on a flock and then are focused, single-minded, and even quite passionate about running down a bird. At the same time, they are very fulfilled in the thrill of the chase, having a tremendous amount of fun just frolicking on the beach. Going home without having caught a bird doesn't for one moment diminish their love of life. When we realize that just being alive is the gift that keeps on giving, we may pursue our own…

7 Pearls of Wisdom for a Happy and Fulfilled Life

Is it true that man is the product of his environment? The answer is NO, because growing up in Haiti in times of political instability, insecurity and extreme poverty, the fate of my life couldn’t be anything but an enormous failure. I would not let circumstances define who I am but instead who I am would change my circumstances -- and who I am is a conqueror. Indeed, it took me some time to fully understand who I am; nevertheless, when I finally figured it out, nothing could stop me from living up to that standard. During my journey to…

When you find it, and I trust that you will, if you haven't already, the next step…

Do You Have Too Much Stuff?

In this very instant, right where you are, you have everything you need to create the life of your dreams. In fact... You Have Too Much. We live in the most abundant times in human history. We're so blessed, we're stressed. We have so many clothes, we often experience Apparelization: the stress felt undecided, frozen in our closets, paralyzed by our apparel. Most Americans cannot fit their car in their garage. Storage is a billion dollar business. Our children have more toys and gadgets than their room was designed to hold. We get angry with them when it becomes a mess.…

We are Souls on a Human Journey 

If there were one important - or invaluable - message I could share with the world, it would be that we are souls on a human journey.  Our physical bodies, material possessions and thoughts rooted in fear all boast impermanence and superficiality. This human experience is merely a playground for our souls. A classroom, if you will. Life on earth is a chance to physically express ourselves, to grow our divinity amidst a variety of challenges. We are love. Our roots, our core, our very being is love and light energy. We are intertwined, interconnected to everyone and everything. Such…

How Do I Take The Next Step in My Career?

"As a medical professional, I feel that I have reached a plateau at my job. I love the job with all of my heart (patients). I work hard on a daily basis. I feel that I could use a pay increase. It has been 6 years since I last had an increase in pay. At the same time, I feel with all of my heart that I was put on earth to do something really great as far as serving people. How do I find out what my next step is in life? I feel stuck." ~ Brenda, Georgia Hi Brenda,…

How Can I Find My Path?

"I have listened to every episode of Inspire Me Today because I just can't resist the daily dose of optimism and inspiration. I am inspired by all that these luminaries (and you!) have accomplished. I would love to follow in their footsteps but the thing is, I don't know how.  I'm going to be graduating college soon and I still only have an inkling of what I want to do with my life. I love writing, and I would love to inspire people through my writing, but I don't know how. I love helping people and animals, but I don't…

3 Ways To Reveal Your Talents

Sometimes, we conceal ourselves from ourselves. Not wanting to acknowledge the person we are, in all our special gifts, until we are forced to be guided by the wits of what life has taught us. A failure to engage, stuck in the rut, feeling unfilled, because.... We do that until we grow into this ever-evolving trail of life, eventually seeking ways to find meaning after challenges have found us with no zap in our story. Then we start on the quest to find value in our narratives. We are each bestowed with abilities of wonder, making us this unique blend.…

The Power of Purpose

If today were my last day on earth, the words I would share wouldn't necessarily be something that hasn't been said before, only something simply forgotten, more or less, buried, tucked away, locked inside our hearts. It's a message that we have all heard: a creed that we've all sworn to at some time in our lives. A burning desire that was placed in us a birth. I'm referring to our purpose and the power that it holds once it is embraced and acted upon. If today were my last day on earth, my only regret in this life would…

What We Learn from Love

We find ourselves created out of love or for love, slipping though the chambers of our mothers' womb... into the birth canal... and all of a sudden, we arrive. We don't know exactly where we are or where we are going but certainly we need affection and love to survive. Love becomes just as important to us as our first breath of life. Love helps us to discover who we are and what our purpose is or shall be. Love gives of itself and is not puffed up. Love covers and carries us through pain and disappointments in our life.…

Hope Is Not A Strategy

There was a time when my life was going ok. I was working a lot of hours, making a lot of money, and enjoying my free time. Like many of you, I suspect, this was ok. At the time I was working about 70 hours a week. I was struggling to make it through the day, and hoping that things would get better. I hoped that my career would slow down. I hoped that I would be able to take some time off soon. I hoped that I could begin to take better care of myself. Then things began to go…

Bouncing with Style: Better Boundaries

Yesterday I read a book about boundaries. Why? I had to for one of my upcoming shows.  Much to my delight, I started understanding what that bandied-about term meant in relation to me, my family and friends, and my kids. Even my dogs will benefit from my reading the material. We hear a lot in the media about boundaries. Gotta set boundaries. That’s a boundary violation. I have firm boundaries.  I have no boundaries. But what does that really mean? I started thinking about how boundaries are being erased as we groove into a society where personal choice often trumps the rights…

Live Your LIfe With Purpose

I would share my knowledge of doing the right thing and listening to my mind and body all of the time. You see, your body can give you honest feedback - it doesn’t lie to you. If you pay attention to how you feel in any given circumstance, you will know what the right moves are for you and what the wrong moves are. With me, it is my heart and solar plexus that I pay the most attention to because I have spent so much time nurturing my mind/body/soul connection, I know right away if something will be a benefit…
