How Are You Responding To This Uncertainty?

  Fear is blinding.   Hope is a powerful force against fear.  Hope guides you towards possibilities.   Keep HOPE front and center during these uneasy times.   Think about what you need right now.  Is it a smile, is it some fresh air or some comforting words?  I have loved watching all the people in our neighborhood out walking, riding bikes and fishing.  Families are together. Kids are on bikes and scooters. One dad had his daughter on his shoulder while walking the dog and Read More

Can Being Playful in These Times of Uncertainty Help You?

  How are you having a good time during these weeks of isolation and confinement with coronavirus? It’s important to nourish yourself.  One of the ways to do that is by being more whimsical and lighthearted.  As the dictionary defines playful - “fond of games and amusement; lighthearted.  Intended for one's own or others' amusement rather than seriously.  Full of energy and a desire for fun.” Playfulness is a quality that I need to be reminded about because I have a Read More

No Better Time To Focus On What You Want, Not On What You Don't

  What you focus on, you receive.  With today’s coronavirus scare, fear is the focus.  Remember, you don’t want to empower something by giving it focus.  Instead, focus on what you want.  Good health for you and everyone.   Continuously think of good health, how grateful you are for your health and well-being.  How life is calling us to pay attention.  Keep thinking and focusing on what you desire to have in your life.  It’s not easy when you are bombarded with all the Read More

How Curious Are You?

  What has you excited and on fire about life?     How much curiosity do you have?  Curiosity about life and how it works? Curiosity about what’s possible for your life? Curiosity about how you can serve? Curiosity allows you to keep learning, seeking and seeing what’s possible.  No matter your age.  I love learning.  I love asking questions, learning about people and hearing their stories.  More and more I have noticed how unique each person is.   It’s fun to Read More

How Are Your Expectations Hindering Your Happiness?

  Do you expect people to behave a certain way, and get upset if that doesn’t happen? Do you expect situations to be a certain way, and if things aren’t like you planned, you become angry? Expectations are when you expect others to respond a certain way or situations to be different than they are. You have given away your power when you believe you can control things outside of yourself. What if instead, you shift and let whatever happens be God talking to you.  Let it be that Read More

How Can You Bring Simplicity to Your Life?

  Life is about finding the balance.  Imagine that. The balance between busyness and lazy.  The balance of activity or being sedentary.  The balance between rigid and flexible.  The balance between chaos and settled. When you live simply, you open to more of the magic of life.  You are open to receive the joy and pure pleasures of life.  You have time to notice them.  Like sitting out on the back porch watching the birds, turtles or the sunset,      Life is Read More

How Does Hope Keep You Going?

  I realized how much I love thinking about what’s coming up in my life.   I love looking forward to the days I pick up my grandsons from school to have our “DeeDee Time.”   I love looking forward to when Bo returns at the end of his day.   I love looking forward to our travel and what might show up next for us. Hope keeps me thinking about what’s next and all I have going on in my life.   I know how much my husband enjoyed looking forward to his Class of 68 Reunion Read More

Which of Your Mindsets Need to Be Updated?

  Do you believe in the possibility of infinite good in your life? Do you believe in goodness for your life? If you believe in goodness from within and outside, what is holding you back from having a life you desire? You have approximately 60,000 thoughts in a day.  Think about what is racing around in your head.  Are those thoughts mostly about all the good that is going to happen in your life today and tomorrow?  Or, are more of those thoughts about worry - worry if you’ll have Read More

Where Are You Receiving Your Greatest Soul Lessons?

  Life is calling you.  Life decides when it’s time to purge and move to a Higher place in life.  Life helps you move into a new vibration, a new place because you have outgrown where you are.  Remember, life is for you. What is trying to emerge in you? Notice where you feel stuck in your life.  I know for me it seems to come back to food and my body, worrying about my weight.  I have “fought” it with every possible diet and gimmick.  I have made food and my body the Read More

Do You Believe Heaven Is A Place Within You?

  How jolting is it to you to read this title?  That heaven is a place within you?  I know for me growing up Catholic, Heaven was the place you could go to if you were good or this perfect girl.  It was way up in the sky and only special people were able to work their way there when they died.  I know when I first learned heaven is right here within me and that I created it, I was taken back.  It seemed sacrilegious.   But, I knew it felt right.  I knew it made more sense than Read More
