Unnecessary Roadblocks

Unnecessary Roadblocks

Write By:

  I was telling my mother about two recent incidents that were both surprising and remarkable. A woman that I only knew through Facebook contacted me about my origami butterflies. She’d seen the butterflies at a party I attended where I gave them as a gift, and she loved them and wanted to know if I had more for sale. I was thrilled. I’d been making the butterflies for over a year, just for my own pleasure, but I’d secretly longed to sell them. And here was my opportunity. Another woman whom......

Are You Doing Your BEST Today?

Are You Doing Your BEST Today?

Write By:

 Several weeks ago I was asked to do a short presentation about the collaborative book F.A.I.T.H. – Finding Answers in the Heart. Following your heart was a given, then came the title “Trusting Your Inner GPS (Guidance Protective System).” I loved the title but I also wanted an acronym for people to use, something to cement the information in their minds. A handful of days passed before I found the phrase “Are you doing your B.E.S.T. today?” The first thing that popped into my head was a flash from the Army advertisement......

Taming Your Inner Critic

Taming Your Inner Critic

Write By:

Imagine the scene… You are out with your friends, and across the room you see the most gorgeous person ever. They look up, and your eyes meet for the most fleeting of moments, before you look away. Immediately your heart starts to pound, your belly is doing summersaults, and you can hardly breathe. And then… …that voice in your head gets started, without your permission, “oh really, you think they would be interested in someone like you? Look at you, your so skinny, you have no social skills, and omg just look......

Write By:

Do you feel stuck, or like the “pause” button of your life is pushed, and you don’t know how to get moving again?  There are three words that can help to not only get you moving again, but get you on the road to your greatest success.

Healing Through Parenting

Healing Through Parenting

Write By:

My teen-age years were filled with emotional wounds and many are still just barely scabbed over. Looking back now, I know that I had many judgments and expectations about what I wanted from life, and perceptions of what actually happened as good or bad. I have the luxury of looking back with wisdom and see that none of it was actually bad. I can now see those experiences as blessings and everything that they have created in me, in the present. Then there are those wounds from not yet healed places that seem......

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......

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 Power of Your Thoughts

The Power of Your Thoughts

Write By:

It has been said that our thoughts are creative and that our thoughts shape our beliefs.  More aptly our thoughts create our feelings, our feelings create our beliefs, our beliefs create our actions, and our actions create our results. So, where do our thoughts come from? They come from the file cabinets of our minds and the old programming from the past.  We have all been influenced by our family, friends, churches, teachers, and other authority figures in our lives.  They also come from our memory banks that hold the perceptions of......
