    Ask Yourself – How Do I Want To Feel Today?

    Now that the new year has descended upon us, let’s start it off with a question that will change your life ~ how do I want to feel today?  Obviously no one wants to feel sad, depressed, angry, stressed, anxious or unhappy.  Too often we carry yesterday’s worries and woes into the next day until one day we realize we are living the same life over and over again, year after year.  You CAN change this!  You CAN have the life you dream of.   If you want to create more joy, abundance, and true happiness in your life, ask yourself every day upon waking how you want to feel…

    Own it!

    Someone recently said to me, very sternly I may add, as I was expressing feelings of guilt over a choice I made 9 years ago, “JUST OWN IT!”. She told me to own the fact that I not only did what was best for me, but I did what I had to do in order to save myself ~ end of story.  And just like that the guilt was gone. I don’t know why it took so many years, but the moment I heard those words something inside of me changed.  I became free.  Not only from the guilt I had been holding onto, but also from disappointment, shame and…

    Every Choice You Make Has An Outcome

    Every choice we make ends up somewhere.  It doesn’t matter what it is, there is always an outcome.  You may or may not see it or feel it, but it is there.  Even the littlest of choices such as the type of toilet paper you buy will have an outcome.  You will end up with a happy tush or an unhappy tush depending on the type of toilet paper you chose to buy.  If you choose to turn left instead of right this could cause you the opportunity to see the sunset and what a beautiful outcome that would be!  The choice I made today to paint my fingernails has a…

    Do You Have Inner Freedom

    Inner freedom is the illumination of all that we are.  It has an untouchable power and positive energy force that guides us throughout our personal journey.  It keeps us in tune with the greater part of who we truly are, with our Inner Life. Inner freedom is being totally free from negativity, pain and unhappiness. You do not have inner freedom when you are twisted in knots or bound by your outer life afflictions, or if you are filled with any level of discomfort. If you want inner freedom you have to let go of all the turbulence in your life.  It doesn’t matter if it’s in the past or in…

    And So It Shall Be …..

    So yes, I have been totally out of sorts, and that is putting it mildly.  Swirling around and around, stumbling as I fall, until I can’t see not a thing ~ not even what is right in front of me.  I know I have been allowing unwanted life experiences engulf me into the shadows of sadness and darkness.  And I know without a shadow of a doubt how to not allow unwanted life experiences control me.  However, as human as a human can be, even I, your Truly Happy Leap Like A Frog “Guru” got stuck.  I got stuck in the boundaries of my outer life, leaving behind the one…

    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…

    The True Way of Forgiveness

    Although I would prefer to live a life completely filled with joy, happiness and peace, we all know it is nearly impossible.  We all know there will be life experiences that hurt us, make us angry, take us to our knees, or leave us completely torn and breathless.  Some of the most difficult experiences come from our relationships and learning forgiveness.  Just recently, a very wonderful and wise man in my life reminded me of the true way of forgiveness. When a life experience calls for forgiveness, more than likely we have made it quite clear what this person did to hurt US.  More than likely we spoke without love,…

    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…
