Beautiful Things

    Sometimes we look at our lives and see only lost jobs, broken relationships, debt and plenty of mistakes. We see all those attempts at moving forward in our careers or finances. We see all of our setbacks and delays, all the (so-far) fruitless attempts at landing new clients, having children or even finding our perfect,…

Setbacks and Silver Linings

We may have the perspective that we don’t always get what we want in this life and that’s just the way it is. But what if there’s really more to it than that? There seem to be a lot more silver linings these days, but you must not only expect to find them but be watching…

Can What You Put in Your Mouth Affect Your Positivity?

Many years ago, a friend of mine slipped and fell on the ice dislocating their shoulder. Because of the timing, I was the only person they could reach to take them to the hospital. Having a bone out of joint causes extreme pain. Muscles are stretched in ways they were not intended. As I drove…

How Bright Is Your Future?

If you’ve ever taken a science class and studied rock formations, you know that it is possible to change the face of a rock, any rock, by repeatedly, over time, applying something to it. Water dripping in the same place on a rock will eventually, molecule by molecule, wear a path into that stone. The longer…

What Time in a Clay Studio Taught Me

It’s funny how something can be so part of your life. You are in it every day for so many months or even years. And then it’s back there buried under a bunch of time. You don’t think about it for so long that you can almost forget that it was part of your history….

Celebrate your victories.

Reaching a simple goal, a major milestone or accomplishing any pursuit should give you a moment to pause and rejoice. After all, not everyone can do what you can do. And even if they can, how many people will? Even if they do, how many will take a moment to enjoy completing an undertaking? It’s…

Last Summer Holiday

      As the sun sets on this last summer holiday, be safe, know you are loved and send me a postcard!

How to Overcome the Resistance Blocking Your Destiny

All summer, I’ve made time to read while grounding. Grounding (or Earthing) is where you stick your bare feet in the grass and effortlessly transfer the Earth’s electrons from the ground in through your soles. Also by sitting, working, or sleeping just let natural vibration of the earth go through your soles. It is said to be calming,…

Light Your Goals on Fire

  How do you plan to achieve your current goals? Have you made a list of your current goals? Do you know what your current goals are? So many of us are able to keep plates spinning in our minds where they take up brain space and energy to keep them there. I liken this to…

How Do You Measure Your Gratitude?

Thanksgiving is months away, and in reality, one day isn’t enough to consider all the ways you’re blessed. Even though I intentionally live in a state of gratitude and thankfulness, so many things slip between the cracks. Most people can tick of the quick list of things to be grateful for: friends and family, our…

Nurturing Your Dreams

Up until I read Millionaire Success Habits, by Dean Graziosi, an underlying belief I carried was that that life constantly fought against me. Since reading his book, and taking the above quote to heart, the tumblers of life have begun falling into place more and more. Since changing circles of influence several times over the…

Where Will Positivity Take You?

Last fall, my mentor had suggested that I attend networking meetings. The very idea made my heart race and sweat break out on my forehead. I’m a writer, after all. Prone to long and blissful days of solitude. But to my mentor that equaled living in a vacuum. Instead of imagining all that could go…
