Rebel With A Cause

Conscious Awakening!  Rebel With (and for) A Cause!  A new day, a new challenge…Let me ask you, when you look in the mirror what do you see?  While not without fault or flaw, do you see genuine truth, strength, authenticity, integrity, hope, joy, fearlessness, faith, laughter, compassion, caring, beauty, light and love? Or, do you […]

Rebel Without A Cause

Some days, it feels so good to be a rebel!  Later this week, I have a post on being a Rebel With a Cause.  Today, I choose to be a rebel without one.  Well, let me rephrase that:  I am not going to end violence, hunger, poverty or other social injustices, but I am going […]

Thanks and Love

Say Thanks, I Love You, Then Leave!

Yes, Mother’s Day is Sunday. It’s a time when many desire to celebrate with their children; celebrations of being their mom or a mom figure or to honor our moms/those mother figures in our lives.  I am not one of them.  Say “Thanks, I love you”.  Then leave! I originally posted this last year and […]

Perception

Perception is Reality

How often have we heard this:  perception is reality? And oh, by the way, how self-limiting is this phrase?  I originally published this on August 21, 2016.  Sometimes, a little reminder is necessary to keep us  focused.  There are always multiple ways of looking at things.  We should never be afraid to shift our perspective […]

Living

And Then One Day…

And then, one day, your world is turned upside down. Stunned, in shock, and heartbroken.  You don’t know how to process the news.  You get the word a loved one or dear friend has been killed. The details don’t matter much in this moment; the fact is, the person is no longer walking around on this planet. […]

Love Deeply

One Day

”One day, you will meet a girl who will talk about the world as if she’s lived a thousand lives and she’ll see things in such a different perspective that you’ll question everything you know. She’ll describe things in words you’ve never heard but they sound so beautiful coming out of her mouth that you’ll […]

What Holds Us Back? (Getting out of our own way)

What is holding us back now, in this very moment?  Shame? Fear of ridicule, rejection or failure? Being a disappointment to family, friends, ourselves?  That the world around us continually feeds us the message that we aren’t good enough, talented enough, smart enough, just plain not worthy enough (so much so that we begin to believe this […]
