Second Chances

Second Chances

Write By:

I am grateful for my body every day – that I have the ability to move and be alive. There was a time I feared that would not be the case. Three years ago I was diagnosed with an aggressive triple negative breast cancer. I was barely 31, the producer of a party company, directing a nonprofit organization, and living with my boyfriend (whose mother was also fighting breast cancer; only she was in stage IV). It was a major awakening. I seriously considered moving to the Eastern hemisphere to explore natural......

Your Ripple Effect

Your Ripple Effect

Write By:

Six Degrees of Separation Is Not That Far Between You and What Really Matters“The idea that everything is purposeful really changes the way you live. To think that everything that you do has a ripple effect, that every word that you speak, every action that you make affects other people and the planet.”~ Victoria Moran Do you see your life and what you do with it as “purposeful”? With all that is happening around our planet and between nations it’s easy to perceive our individual selves as insignificant and, in the process,......

Conscious Choice: The Engine of Your Evolution

Man is made or unmade by himself. By the right choice he ascends. As a being of power, intelligence, and love, and the lord of his own thoughts, he holds the key to every situation. — James Allen As a spiritual mentor, part of my job is to challenge the people I work with to consciously observe their BS (belief system) and challenge any current beliefs they hold that are keeping them stuck in a mental prison of their own making. The moment is quite interesting to witness when they discover that......

Service in Leadership

Write By:

  Twenty-first century global reality has placed the world’s citizens in a unique position. With the internet comes instant access to information, and social media brings the world right to us. As economic and cultural shifts continue to take place, old models of top-down hierarchies are quickly fading, and a new kind of leadership is needed. While we in general are smarter, more consumer-savvy and less willing to take an authority’s word at face value, we can also feel overwhelmed in light of the sheer amount of information thrown our way, and......

A Spiritual Approach to Parenting

A Spiritual Approach to Parenting

Write By:

I was born to be a “mommy.” From my very first memories,  I was in love with the idea of nurturing little ones. Little did I know that I would take on that role at the tender age of 15. Becoming a parent while still growing up myself proved to be a bit challenging. But within every challenge arises the potential  for growth.  I was absolutely sure that my daughter and any future children would be raised much differently than me. However, I wasn’t completely sure what that would look like. A couple......

The Blessing of Spring

The Blessing of Spring

Write By:

EXPECT TO HAVE HOPE REKINDLED. EXPECT YOUR PRAYERS TO BE ANSWERED IN WONDROUS WAYS. THE DRY SEASONS IN LIFE DO NOT LAST. THE SPRING RAINS WILL COME AGAIN ~  Sarah Ban Breathnach No doubt spring has almost sprung and the lessons it brings are prolific if we are open to seeing how they may apply in our own lives. Just as there are seasons of the year, we too are subject to our own personal seasons. There is little doubt that the seasons of the year can have a deep seated affect on......

How to Tune Into Your Inner Voice

How to Tune Into Your Inner Voice

Write By:

  It was January, 2008 when I heard that inner voice say, “just trust me on this”; I didn’t understand why, but I knew I had to trust this voice. I was clearing emails out of my inbox when I came across one that I was about to delete until I heard,  “do not delete it, open it.” I was a little puzzled by this especially since the email subject did not appear to be anything but spam, but I proceeded to open the email anyway. That’s when I saw it, an......

How to Overcome the Fear of Mediocrity

How to Overcome the Fear of Mediocrity

Write By:

There you go. That’s it – my greatest fear. I have a huge, hairy, unwieldy fear of mediocrity. While some may hear words like “lukewarm,” “average,” “okay,” and “mediocre” as solid and centered, I break out in hives. Yuck. Icky. Scary. It scares me to think of a milktoast life.  It’s why I love the Oscars, the Tonys, the SuperBowl, the World Cup and any handmade Soap Box Derby Championship – I cheer wholeheartedly for people playing at the top of their game and expressing their talents fully.  But what about the......

The Challenge of Change: Are you the River or the Rock?

“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 With the new year well under way, it’s interesting to see how many people are intentionally trying to initiate change in some area(s) their life while, at the same time, resisting it in others. Right now, many people are flocking to the gym with a desire (resolution) to get fit–and that sort of change is a wonderful thing. Yet, at the same time, change may be happening......
