How Clear Are You With What You Want In Life?

  Every day is a new opportunity to decide what is important for you in your life. For instance, many of the government employees right now are just wanting a paycheck. That is what they want to survive and make it. But I would ascertain what they really want is some level of financial freedom, or a different job or occupation.   Life and hardships like these can open up new ways of thinking about what it is you really want - if you allow it.   To use it for your favor Read More

Did You Realize By Examining Your Behaviors You Can Improve Your Life?

  It’s your year to rise above all limits you have on yourself.   Become aware of how you are doing life, and you can change anything.   Think big but take small steps to get there. Think about realistic goals. For too much of my life, my personal goals have been unrealistic - like lose 10 pounds this month or earlier in life in two weeks.   What if instead, you knew you were committed to losing that 10 pounds, not by gimmicks but by a new way of life?   The Read More

So when upsetting things happen, Read More

What Door Closed On You in 2018?

  As this year is nearly ending, what new have you learned? What has been the meaning of 2018 for you?   For me, it has been about surrendering. I can’t always get what I want when I want it. I’m struggling with it but intellectually, I’m understanding it more.   At times surrendering feels like giving up. I know the messages of “In God’s perfect timing”, “Let God’s will be done.” But, not easy for someone who has made things happen and likes controlling Read More

Where Do You Feel Lonely And Alone?

  How is loneliness affecting your world?  Awareness is the first step to making a change. Holidays trigger all kinds of behaviors.   Do you feel you must be with family?

They were sharing how the worst in families come out. Tempers rise and feelings get hurt. And, how you Read More

  Times are changing.    Life is calling you to wake-up.    You have a choice of how you see your life and the world in which you live.  No two people’s perspectives are the same.      At times I feel frustrated and upset over what is happening nationally.  But, I also see it as an opportunity to grow spiritually and focus on what I can do something about and serve in a higher way.     Realize contrast in life offers you a chance to really Read More

  Look around your world. What brings you joy - is it pictures, books you’ve chosen to read, giving to others, or the people in your house? That’s what inspiring is.   As Wayne Dyer says in his book, Inspiration, Your Ultimate Calling, “What I’m offering in this book is the awareness that we can return to a full-time position of inspiration which is the true meaning of life.”   Live in-spirit as Dr. Dyer shares. Not just sometimes, but full-time.   Fill your Read More
