Make Your Mark!

Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art. ~ Andy Warhol What are you weaving? A dream? A business? A book? A workshop? What is it made of? Possibilities? People? Persuasion? Passion? Why is it …

When We Open Up

“I dwell in possibility…” ~ Emily Dickinson What if it’s not the right time? What if I mess up? Who am I to do this? How can I afford to quit? To change? To grow? To LIVE?! We are very good at talking ourselves out of opportunities. Some of us have advanced degrees in protecting ourselves from the world. We …

Believe in Abundance!

“Today expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday…” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach We are alive to learn. When we hide from people, experiences, and opportunities, we suffer. Begin to open up to the idea of ABUNDANCE! Plenty of time! Plenty of money! Plenty of goodness in the world! Yesterday may have sucked. Uncomfortable interactions. Financial …

Off With Your Head!

You will never follow your own inner voice until you clear up the doubts in your mind. ~ Roy T. Bennett Thinking. Thinking. Thinking. We are always thinking. It’s a great strategy for figuring out our world, because it helps us gain a bit of control over the crazy. But sometimes… We need crazy. We need carefree. We need confident. …

Say Something!

Open up to the belief that what you have to share is important! ~ Regina Carey, M.Ed. A great experience. A bad experience. A thought. An idea. Open your mouth and share your story. Use your voice.

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. ~ Lao Tzu Naturally forward. These two powerful words complement each other beautifully. If we are open and embrace our lives as they unfold, we are absolutely moving in a …

Measuring Moments

We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. ~ Anaïs Nin We wish to GROW UP when we’re young. We equate growth with freedom, exploration, choice, and confidence. While there are those treasures, they come with a price – temptation, danger, overwhelm and vulnerability. Just when we think we have reached …

Rough Road Ahead

It is a blessing to experience hardship. Not because we suffer, but because we learn to endure. ~ Saim A. Cheeda Take the easy way! We’re better than this! We have to be perfect! This is too difficult and we don’t have time for it right now! EGO! It wants us to look good and be right and not screw …

I Don’t Know

Ego hates vulnerability. Be vulnerable anyway. Ask for help. ~ Regina Carey We work hard. We solve problems. We feel accomplished. Until we’re met with a challenge that feels overwhelming. No answers. No instincts. Now what? Even the body posture of uncertainty is vulnerable – shoulders up to protect our carotid arteries and palms up, open to the elements. We …

Drop the Remote

Freedom is the only worthy goal in life. It is won by disregarding things that lie beyond our control. ~ Epictetus Having control feels good…control of our schedules, of the television, or of the words coming out of our mouths. The knowing is powerful and prevents us from losing control. What would happen if we released control before we lost it? …
