    And So the Journey Begins

    ~ All I wanted was to be happy but I did not know how. I had no clue where to start or what to do, so I started right where I was. I started in the exact place I didn’t want to be.

Regardless of the circumstances that fuel your desire, the…

    The Next Chapter, Turn the Page

    It’s hard to imagine the next chapter in your life when you have been captured by what you believe to be your only reality. Things are not going the way you want them to, you don’t have the things you want, you are struggling financially, you feel as though life has turned you inside out, and now you can’t see past the next day, let alone the next minute. You are sad, depressed, unhappy, stressed, frustrated and angry. You try to feel better but you can barely make it to the front door. Your thoughts are consumed with negativity and hopelessness. The light you once followed has burned out with…

    The Hole In My Heart

    The only thing I want is to be sad and cry whenever I feel like it.  I don’t want to hide it, put on a smile, and pretend everything is okay.  It hasn’t even been three months since I lost my sister.  This isn’t about her death, it’s about missing her – plain and simple.  It feels like there is a hole in my heart the size of the ocean and I am at the bottom trying to get to the top.  But I can’t get to the top because I don’t know which way to go.  There is nothing anyone can say that I don’t already know.  I know…

    Be the Change that YOU Desire!

    If you have a desire for change, you can start right from where you are. There is no need to go backwards to get to where you want to be. If you know what you want half the battle is over. The past is the past and it no longer exists, so don’t let it exist within you. Whatever it is you want to change or do different, just do it. Do not sit around beating yourself up over what you have done wrong or what you could have done differently. This will only keep you from moving forward. Every moment you have is an opportunity to be who YOU…

    Their Path Is Not Wrong, It’s Just Theirs

    It hurts to see someone we love struggle with life especially when we know what it feels like.  One of the greatest things I have learned throughout my journey is that everyone is on their own unique path.  No matter where they are or what they are doing, their path is not wrong, it’s just theirs.  It’s theirs to do whatever they want to do with it – good or bad.  When we see someone struggling, we sometimes have the tendency to step off our path and onto theirs.  In our effort to help, we put ourselves to the side, but in the end, it doesn’t help them and it…

    Appreciating Yourself, Completely

    When you become consumed with negative feelings about yourself, it is nearly impossible to see anything, let alone yourself, in a positive light.  You are absent of worthiness and full of self-doubt.  You get caught in a never-ending cycle of self-defeating behaviors and before you know it, you cannot find meaning or purpose in your life.  This state of mind will eventually affect your overall well-being, not to speak of causing you to become out of tune with your Inner Life. I know how difficult it can be to feel good about yourself when you are completely down.  Sometimes, in order to find and feel appreciation for who we are,…

    Letters of Love – Take the Time

    When was the last time you hand wrote a love letter to someone? I am not talking about an email, text message, or an array of Emoji’s. Don’t just say “I love you”, but write it ~ write letters of love to those you love and appreciate. Think of all the reasons why you love someone and tell them.  Write it from your heart, from where the love began and continues to grow.  It’s only natural to become irritated or frustrated with those we spend a lot of time with.  It’s only natural to not always feel the love you once felt.  As time goes on there is a tendency to…

    Are Your Thoughts Stealing Your Happiness?

    “You’d  never invite a thief into your house, so why would you allow thoughts, that steal your joy, to make themselves at home in your mind?” – Unknown  When I read this quote I had one of those moments when the light turned on and I could see more clearly ….. it really makes you think.  Why do we allow thoughts that steal our joy, happiness and well-being?  If you were told by a doctor that negative thinking is a life threatening disease, would you keep thinking negative thoughts?  No, of course you wouldn’t, but we do.  And what if you were told the cure for this life threatening disease…

    Yielding To What Is

    When we yield to the things in our lives that cause us anything but joy and happiness we are giving ourselves the freedom to be truly happy.  Yielding to or giving way to something doesn’t always take it away or change things, it just doesn’t run you over. You may still have to face the unwanted, but instead of it completely knocking you down, you are then able to let it run its course with peace instead of anger. Yielding to what is isn’t about failure or giving up for that matter.  It is about allowing the natural flow of life and of being in tune with your Inner Life,…
