Do You Have Frogs?

Do you have frogs? I have froggy files and boxes of frogs awaiting my attention. These are things I began at one time and then they got sidelined by something else. It happens. Now is your time to release your frogs… one at a time. Just choose one. If you choose more than one, they multiply

Release the Need to be Defined by and Defend…

Release the need to be defined by and defend your shortcomings. Instead, embrace your extraordinarily exquisite and phenomenal qualities. Look for evidence of your brilliance. It is all around you. Look for confirmation and clues to the difference you make in the lives around you. Start shifting your perspective towards the positive contribution you make in

What Perspective are You Using?

What perspective are you using? If you find yourself confused or bewildered, shift your perspective. Get a bird’s eye view or look up. Determine the next step up your mountain. When you shift your perspective, you shift the energy of your challenge. You are able to see and hear more. Your entire experience shifts. Have courage!

No One is an Island

No one is an island. We are all in this thing called ‘life’ together and we cannot escape ourselves. Whether on our own or traveling with others, we need to get to know and love ourselves. Be okay with who you are. You’ll make errors of judgment that will lead to beautiful and somewhat miraculous outcomes.

Nature Thrives and is Greatly Abundant

Nature thrives and is greatly abundant. It endures and reclaims itself in all places. Choose to work with it and it will support and nourish you. Work against it or for your own willful avarice and it will, over time, give you what you want and let you consume yourself. Focus on the beauty, the abundant

We are All Creative

We are all creative. We are all creators. We do this in ways beyond paintbrushes or wire tools, marble and chisel, sewing or knitting. We do this with words and feelings, thoughts and emotions, and a willing – if sometimes reluctant – heart. What are you creating in your life? Be mindful of the intention and

We Need Other People

We need other people. Yes, we do. Connection is such a huge part of our emotional stability. We are social creatures. Social can mean a simple conversation via electronic and energetic means.

In the Stillness, the Quiet

In the stillness, the quiet, the alone time we experience, we can find our deep selves. Relax into this fully. There is no need to rush. Savor the moments you have and give yourself the time you need to review, renew, refresh, and reinvigorate all of you. Rest. What will your day bring your way? Endeavor to

Stay Watchful

Stay watchful. Change is on the way. It comes with meandering stealth and with unpredictable surprise. It brings great joy and devastating heartache. And then it all changes again! Be a witness to the change in your life. It fuels and feeds our imagination and our taste for adventure and variety. Accept whatever comes as
