    Living Your Life Happily Ever After – You Are the Priority

    A part of living your life happily ever after means taking care of yourself first and making how you feel a priority.  This does not make you selfish, it makes you healthy and happy.  I’ve been surprised over the years at the number of people who live their lives through what others want, need and expect from them, not to speak of what they think someone wants, needs or expects.  They feel an innate obligation to do for others in a way that ends up stealing their own happiness.  There is certainly nothing wrong with caring for and helping others out, but it has to be on your terms ~…

    Resistance Creates Unhappiness

    The mind can create unhappiness through the thoughts it thinks. If you didn’t think, you wouldn’t have unhappiness because you wouldn’t be thinking of those things that cause you to feel unhappy. Thoughts are what you think, not who you are. Resistance of what is, is your mind gone crazy because you are constantly thinking outside the present moment. This unhappiness is initiated through your resistance to what you don’t want, so essentially you are fighting against an unwanted life experience. You think fighting against it will make it go away but it does just the opposite. Your resistance to that which you do not want will actually make it…

    Turning Bumps Into Stepping Stones

    “I’ve failed, but I’m strong enough to have been able to turn this experience around.  I’ve stumbled and faltered, but I’ve turned the bumps in my road into stepping-stones.” – Anonymous Failure is only failure if you perceive it to be.  There is no failure when you turn the bumps in your road into stepping-stones.  A stepping stone is symbolic of a positive movement forward; a step in the right direction.  When you are able to embrace negative life experiences so much so that you see value in them; they lose power over you because the unwanted is now wanted. Without the unwanted your true desires would never be born. …

    Put It In the Jar

    About 4 years ago I was helping a 5-year-old boy who was living a difficult life.  Not only was he was learning the negative beliefs and behaviors of his parents who were both addicts and verbally abusive, but he was living with a lot of anger. During a short period of time I became his friend, confidant, parent, punching bag, companion and teacher.  We went through many painful times together but we also had some very joyful times. I remembered something he and I did that helped to relieve his anger and the things that bothered him.  It started with an art class.  He and I would do one form of…

    Higher Energy Frequencies through Appreciation

    Appreciation is not just about gratitude but also worth, quality, importance, and awareness of the wonderful things and people in our lives. When you make appreciation a daily practice, focusing on the gratitude, worth, quality, importance and awareness of all that is good, it creates higher frequencies in your energy. These frequencies put you more in tune with your Inner Life, with who you really are. They will also release negativity associated with any resistance you may be allowing from an unwanted life experience.  Focusing on what is pleasing in your life literally removes you from what is not. The Power of Appreciation – The Key to a Vibrant Life The…

    It’s A New Day!

    It’s a new day!  Every day is a new opportunity to create your life the way you want it to be. It is entirely up to you as to how you want your day to go.  If you carry negativity from one day to the next you will get caught in a never-ending cycle of frustration, stress and unhappiness. But when you choose to be done with it and start fresh, you can then begin to build the life you want one moment at a time. Our thinking will dictate how our day will go because it will either make us feel good or it will make us feel bad.…

    What Has Waiting Done For You

    How much of your life have you spent waiting? I am not talking about outer life waiting such as waiting to graduate, waiting to buy a house, waiting in a line, or in traffic.  I am talking about waiting to fully embrace your Inner Life which will bring you peace, well-being, abundance and true happiness. Your Inner Life is the core of who you really are, the non-physical part of your true being.  It is the center of all that is and all that will ever be. It is the pure and true “one with” connection to Source. Your Inner Life is always alive, happy and joyful because it is in…

    Why Look Down the Road When You Are Standing On It

    So many precious moments and opportunities are lost because we choose to look down the road instead of living on it. The road ahead is the road you pave through personal creation.  You are the power in and of the road.  You can make it anyway you so choose. How you feel NOW will either create a happy road or an unhappy road.  Some may be smooth, some may be winding and some rough. Any of which will deliver life’s most amazing and miraculous experiences, so long as you look at them with a positive light. To make the road smooth, you have to stop looking down it and start…

    Living in Faith & Positive Anticipation

    Do you have complete faith and positive anticipation of what is to come?  Do you wake every morning filled with excitement of how your day is going to unfold?  If not, why?  Many dread the future because their lives are not where they want them to be.  However, you are the one who is in control.  You are the one who is calling all the shots. You are a true and powerful creator of your own reality. When you live in faith and positive anticipation you release your resistance to what is currently going on.  This means you stop going against your current life situation and relax in the knowing…

    Decide What You Want

    When we are faced with making a decision regarding any matter in our lives, it is up to us to DECIDE which would serve us better and/or enhance our life.  This could be anything from your career, relationships, personal well-being, health or where you live. When we are unable to decide it creates an imbalance within us, which in turn causes us stress and anxiety.  It could also cause temporary feelings of unhappiness.  It is inevitable that we are going to have ups and downs from time to time, however it is important to decide on what will make you happy, even if in the long run, so you can continue…
