Over the course of our lives we all will stand at a fork in the road more often than we realize, pausing to decide which direction to take or decision to make. Some of those decisions are easy to choose because they are clear paths where we are relatively certain we know how it will play out.Continue reading “MAKING BIG DECISIONS CAN BE FUN!”
Have you ever responded to something that scared you by covering your eyes? That’s how I watch scary movies, and the movies I watch aren’t even that scary! But, hey, it makes the scary stuff disappear, right?! That reaction makes me think of how I believe we sometimes act regarding our spirituality. If we just cover our eyes, we won’t have to think about what it really is or if we are spiritual.Continue reading “DO YOU EMBRACE YOUR SPIRITUALITY?”
DO YOU KNOW WHAT FEEDS YOUR SOUL?
My husband and I kill flowers. We don’t mean to, in fact we love flowers. So much so that we buy them and plant them all around our yard and patio every year to enjoy. We water them, feed them healthy plant food, even talk nicely to them, until we get distracted ~ by life, work, dinners out, vacations, running here and there.
Your words have a great effect on our world. Yes, yours. Mine too. Each of us has the opportunity every moment of every day to use the power of our words. We can use them for good, for bad and everything in between. Our words create the energy that we humans use to distinguish one from another.Continue reading “WORDS OF MASS DISTINCTION”
Does your soul feel lost, like something is missing that it needs to find? Are you always searching? Wanting to learn more, do more, see more, experience more? Do people in your life suggest you’re restless or will never be satisfied? Maybe you’ve been told you need to become more responsible, get a ‘real’ job, accept responsibilities, stop being a dreamer, just pick one thing and stick to it? I’ve heard all those things too.Continue reading “IS YOUR SOUL RESTLESS?”
ARE YOU MAKING CONSCIOUS CHOICES?
I realized one day not too long ago that I had strayed greatly from my authentic self. I know the term ‘authentic self’ may sound cliche, but there is a lot of powerful meaning behind it. Living our authentic life, being our authentic self, merely means to stay in alignment of what feels genuine to us. It’s NOT allowing ourselves to be so influenced by what other people say or think (or what we think other people say or think), or what we believe is socially accepted, that we’re not sure of who our authentic self is any longer.Continue reading “ARE YOU MAKING CONSCIOUS CHOICES?”
Say what? Is this true? Yes, it is absolutely true! Joy, happiness, positive thoughts, being optimistic; however you describe it, most of us want our lives to have more of it. We tend to think that outside influences will determine whether we are happy or sad, joyful or depressed, but perhaps we’ve been looking at it from the wrong side of the coin. What if happiness and joy begin and end with our own thoughts, which allow us to see more happiness and joy in our daily life?Continue reading “HAPPINESS AND JOY BEGIN IN OUR BRAIN”

I jumped in my truck this morning to head to a meeting, about 45 minutes away. I put the address into my GPS and it said an hour and fifteen minutes, twice as long as normal . . . What? Why? While I was on the turnpike, my friendly GPS Lady gave me the option to reroute and save 11 minutes, “Sure, why not?”, I thought.Continue reading “GUARDIAN ANGELS IN DISGUISE”
We, as humans, sure like to make things complicated don’t we? Take being physically fit for example.

WDo you consider yourself to be a motivated person? What does that mean anyway?! To motivate means to stimulate someone’s interest in, or enthusiasm for, doing something. So if you’re a motivated person it means you are good at stimulating your own interest in, or enthusiasm for, doing what you want or need to do.Read more
Exercise. I know, I know, if you’re anything like me you have a love/hate relationship with exercise. I love to stay active, but I do not enjoy exercising, at least according to the way I interpret what exercising means. I picture a lot of sweat, too-hot, not-feeling-so-good, lots of reps, using machines other people have sweated on (eww), finding the time and motivation to go ‘there’ to work out.Continue reading “YOU’VE GOT TO MOVE IT, MOVE IT!!”
