What Takes 5 Minutes and Lasts Forever?

“To write is human, to receive a letter: Devine!” ~ Susan Lendroth This weekend, one of my favorite aunts passed away. She was the first-born, just like me. Cancer took her. She lives on in pictures and letters and memories. For that, I am grateful. She wrote me a beautiful letter in 2014, complimenting me on my new business, my …

Make It Happen!

Trust in the power of your thoughts and make them lovely! ~ Regina Carey We choose our thoughts, our beliefs, and our responses. None of those is genetic. There is freedom in the way we choose to think about and behave in our lives. As we celebrate the season – no matter how we choose to do that – may …

Lights On!

As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same… ~ Marianne Williamson If we walk around believing that we do not matter; if we look at our phones instead of the faces around us; if we feel small and insignificant, we are in darkness. Alone. This is a choice. When we decide to …

Triggers

“Do not deny the classical approach, simply as a reaction, or you will have created another pattern and trapped yourself there.” ~ Bruce Lee Pay attention! We get triggered by people, music, situations, smells, language – so many different ways that the world comes at us. If we are truly working on our journey as humans, we will pay attention …

Breaking Patterns

“From where we stand the rain seems random. If we could stand somewhere else, we would see the order in it.”  ~ Tony Hillerman The way we evolve is by recognizing the things we repeat that do not serve us – the assumptions we make, the judgments about others, the beliefs we hold about ourselves and our capabilities. The way …

Even though our senses are used to the shifting seasons, we can create a new experience. Make it fresh! ~ R Carey How do we keep our work, our friendships, our hobbies and interests fresh? When we get used to the everyday sights, sounds, tastes and feels, it’s time to switch things up! Slow down. That’s a start. Take more …

Cheering You On!

“Remain cheerful, for nothingdestructive can pierce through the solid wall of cheerfulness ~ Sri Chinmoy Today is a great day! We can and we will! It’s important to create a reset button – an action, a song, a breathing technique, or something tangible that taps into our senses – in an effort to keep our attitude healthy and happy! It’s …

Has the Trail Run Cold?

Don’t keep forever on the public road, going only where others have gone. ~ Alexander Graham Bell At some point in our lives, we reach the moment where we’re able to finish sentences coming from the leaders to whom we listen. We understand the theories. We get the ideas. We know the best practices. And we might actually have something …

Walk This Way

Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker? ~ Garth Nix We are creatures of habit, in our homes, our professions, even our relationships. So when life comes at us with unforeseen twists, it often forces us onto a new path. Initially, we may feel wary about the shift. We look for anything familiar to help with …

Where’s the Remote?

“Your heart has a powerful little antenna and its pulses and vibrations can be felt throughout the universe.” ~ Suzy Kassem How many times have you asked this question?
