    This Was Then

    I laid on the edge of my bed like an infant, slightly quivering.  I could only feel my aching soul.  My pain began to seep out of my eyes.  I prayed to God to comfort me, to take me in His arms, to protect me, and to give me enough love that would change my life.  I knew I was gone. “It” had taken me from all those that loved me but I could not see.  I was blind to the outside world, I was numb to emotion.  I was in my own self-made prison. My pain was so great from “it” that death began to intrigue me.  Laying on…

    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…

    Do Your Words Enhance Your Joy & Happiness

    Have you ever thought about how your words affect your health, happiness and overall well-being?  Think about it for a moment ~ how you express yourself is no different than the food you put into your body.  It will either make you feel better or it will make you feel worse.  Words could very easily be just words, but rarely they are.  They are always tied to a positive or negative feeling.  It is those feelings that will, in the end, contribute to the creation of your own reality, all inclusively.  A good example would be when you are driving.  How often do you find yourself using choice words toward…

    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…

    Sometimes We Fall

    Sometimes we fall. Sometimes we fall, get up, and fall again. Sometimes we don’t know why, we just know we fell and all that matters is getting back up. In the silence of our minds and the beating of our hearts, we know what we need to do to get back up. Facing ourselves and our truth can be difficult but it can also be powerful beyond measure. Our truth always lies within ~ anything that causes us to fall will always be found in our outer life. Letting go of your outer life is an essential step toward getting back up because it leaves but one thing ~ 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…
