Life Begins When You Do

That each decade of my life I learned my lessons from my obstacles and my joys. I collected them in writing. In my twenties I wrote my longings: these were foundational to my life manifestations. Create. Write. Inspire. Serve. These days that's called the law of attraction. The ancients said and I saw it as true - our lives become what we think about. Or, "what you feed, grows." In my thirties I gathered my intentions: Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Laugh. Play with abandon. Practice wellness. Continue to learn. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your…

Finding Daily Moments of Joy

Life is about the journey, not the destination. If you believe this deeply, in the marrow of your spirit, you will treasure each day and take ownership of your time. This means that every day should hold moments of joy and hope for you; your job is to figure out how to usher such moments into your life on a daily basis. For me, this means writing in my journal as a gentle way to enter the day. I go into my study, cup of tea in hand, pick up pencil and notebook. Usually, both have been selected with care.…

Your Spiritual GPS – Soul Writing

Imagine that earth is actually a school, a place where spiritual beings come to experience all there is to learn about life in a physical body. Your life is part of a series of lessons—all part of a curriculum you decided on before your soul entered your body. Now picture yourself as that little soul still in spirit, patiently awaiting the next transport to earth. Your book bag is filled with all the tools you’ll need. But of everything in that book bag, the most important gift your creator gave you is your “phone home card.” It was tucked in…

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…

Growth through Writing… Empower Yourself!

Since man formed his first vocabulary, family and tribal news was carried from tribe to tribe, village to village by a storyteller. They would be welcomed in each cave, hut, or council house as an honored guest and nights would be spent around the fire listening to the latest news from family members living afar. Famine, a good harvest, movement of wild herds, warring tribes, births, deaths, alliances, all were carried by the professional storyteller. After a few days passed the news had been told and the storyteller, rested and refreshed, would move to the next tribe or settlement. While…

Today’s Brilliance from Stefan Lyon

I started raising money to help those in great need after September 11. I sold cookies, but realized that I wasn't making as big a difference as I wanted to, so I decided to start a project to help orphans in Africa. I wrote a book about my pet rats to raise money for a school for kids in Kenya, but the donations from one book weren't enough, so over the past two years I've written two more books. Starting this foundation has taught me many lessons. I've learned how to spend my time helping other people. I have learned…
