Saying Yes To Yourself Each Day

  How do you honor yourself each day?   How do you take care of your body, mind and spirit each day to be at the top of your game?   I know women of my generation were told it was selfish to think of yourself. It was your job to take care of everyone else.   Yet, as I have grown over the years I’ve seen how many women are depleted and exhausted from this mindset.   Depression had ballooned in the last decade, one of the leading causes of Read More

Taking Responsibility for Creating The Life You Desire

  Did you know that you have the choice to live the life you desire and deserve?   You have the power and ability. As Louise Hay says; “We have the power of our thoughts and words. As we change our thinking and our words, our experiences also change. No matter where we came from, no matter how difficult our childhood was, we can make positive changes today.”   You are responsible for your life. Maybe until right now you have not been conscious that you have choices. But, I Read More

How Worthy Do You Feel Since You Retired?

  Does getting older mean you no longer matter? Or is it from retirement you feel that way?   The transitions with retirement and aging can make you feel lost and uncertain how to feel relevant again.

You will have to overcome aches and pains and probably some diseases. But if you stay focused on the type of life you want, you will beat the odds and live a healthier, vibrant Read More

What's Heavy On Your Mind?

Life is calling you.     How do you know? Note the emotions you are feeling right now. If you notice you are upset and reacting to outside factors, then you know you are being called to something higher.   Think about something that is upsetting you. Is it with our world, your country, your town or your life? Is it too many grandparents taking care of their grandkids or too much hatred being seen?   Whether you do something or not, it is happening and affecting your Read More

What's The State of Being You Are Lead By?

The time is now to know what’s guiding your life. Is it calm and peace? Worry and stress? Love and joy? Caring and accepting?   Knowing what’s leading your life will help shift your thinking when life’s challenges presents itself to you. It will help you get back on track when you know and live it.   This last week’s shooting in Las Vegas can certainly have you question many things - what is happening to our country, how could someone do something so outrageous or wonder Read More

Transitioning Into Retirement - Feel The Loss

  One of the ideas I have been tossing around more and more lately is how to deal with life’s transitions - whether that is losing a partner, retirement, or losing your health.   The more you take charge of your emotional state of mind, the more peaceful and calm your life will be.   The journey of life is based on your choices. Life is full of peaks and valleys, fun, obstacles and challenges. There are some things you have no control of, like Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Read More

  “We actually choose life or death on a daily basis.
