The Perfect Partner

He is kind, gentle, warm, loving and carefree. He is there when you need him and even when you don’t. He doesn’t complain, hold a grudge, or have baggage. He is always relaxed, goes with the flow, and never stresses or worries. He has complete faith and trust in me and in the Universe. He has no drama and shy’s away from negativity. He listens intently and never judges. He helps in trimming the plants and making the bed. He loves to be playful and is always up for cuddle time. He never asks me where I am going or when I am going to be back. He supports all my decisions, right or wrong. He is always up for snack, movie or nap time. He keeps himself healthy and clean. He shows his love, not through words, but by loving and affectionate gestures. He leaves gifts in surprising places and shows great appreciation when he receives a gift. He loves the sights and sounds of nature, bird watching, and basking in the sun. He is never late for a meal and enjoys trying new things. He participates in meditation and yoga and is a pro at the Cat Pose. To just sit and watch him brings overwhelming peace and love. He is funny and has a personality all his own. If you are sick, he is by your side. If you are sad or upset his touch alone is enough to calm you down. He never makes you feel like you are alone. He is the perfect partner. He is my perfect partner. He is my Henry!

Appreciating Yourself, Completely

351When 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, regardless of how we got to where we are or what we did, it may serve us well to look outside ourselves first.  Select something outside yourself that makes you feel good and then feel appreciation for it until you feel a shift in your energy…..and you will. Whatever you do, stay focused on whatever it may be that makes you feel better until it begins to take form within you. Once you start to feel the appreciation within you, it’s time to turn inward and allow your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be.

355From this point forward, fill yourself up with the people, places, things, thoughts and feelings that bring you the most joy and happiness. Find appreciation for all of God’s perfect creations.  Once your positive momentum gets moving, allow yourself the joy in appreciating yourself, completely.  Appreciate everything there is to appreciate – get up close and personal with YOU. Before you know it, the all-knowing, pure positive energy will start pouring out of you, and then there will be unconditional self-love. It is then that the darkness fades away and the light shines through!!!!

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be ….

Love & Light,

Letters of Love – Take the Time

17When 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 allow the negative to overpower the positive, to the point of forgetting what is really important and that is LOVE – pure positive unconditional love.

If you were to sit in the pureness of your heart and focus solely on the love within you and around you, you would be amazed at the difference not only in how you feel, but also in how you feel toward others – all others.  Love is the most powerful and greatest emotion we have and yet we let it slip through our lives time and time again.  Isn’t it time to live through your heart – through love?  Take the time to write a letter of love …..it will do you and someone else good!


If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be ….

Love & Light,
