To Care is Extraordinary

To care is extraordinary. To nurture is divine. Can you feel the difference? They both allow for healing. They are both compassionate responses. Nurturing allows thriving to take root and expand. Nurture yourself. Nurture others. We are in so much need of caring and nurturing right now. What will your day bring your way? Make it part

Feel all the Feels

Feel all the feels. Let them really sink in. Scream if you must. Cry all your tears. Let them all go – your doubts and your fears. In all of this mess, you will need to breathe. Give yourself room to let in some peace. Look at yourself in the clear light of grace and laugh.

Check in with Yourself

Check in with yourself. Check in with your loved ones and friends. This reminder is to give you an opportunity to slow down and extend yourself inward and then reach out to others. We all need someone to be interested in who we are, what we do, what we feel, and what we know. So, start

There is More than One Solution

There is more than one solution to every problem. Sometimes, the solution is easy and relatively quick. Sometimes, it is easy and a lengthy process. Solutions are always easy. Implementing them is what we can find difficult. It is only a perception. What will your day bring your way? Sometimes, what appears to be the perfect solution

Clarify Yourself through Creativity

Clarify yourself through creativity. When you allow yourself to create, you access and activate deep places within you of beauty and great knowing.

When was the Last Time…

When was the last time you picked up a book to read? When was the last time you picked up a pen to write a book you wanted to read? Do one or both. Reading books helps you immerse in other worlds. Writing books helps you immerse in your own inner world. Reading books may inspire

When You are in Overwhelm

When you are in overwhelm, it is because you are unwilling to give up control or are trying to force the next step or a particular outcome. Stop. Relax.

Work Smarter, not Harder

Work smarter, not harder. What does that mean? It means take time to consider your process and the efficiency of it. Tweak and change what you need to streamline it. There is more than one way to do the same task. What will your day bring your way? Every task is like playing chess. Think more than

Breathe Deeply

Breathe deeply. Go ahead. We’ll be here when you’re ready. Breathe deeply once more. Slow down. Release your judgements, your angst and despair. Let go of your need to control everything. Breathe deeply and freely. Clear your head and your heart. Slow down. What will your day bring your way? Take the time you need to drop

We All Have Times of Feast and Famine

We all have times of feast and famine. We are all superstars one minute, then outcasts the next. The flavor of the month loses its interest once everyone begins seeking something new. In what way have you built foundations deep enough to sustain you? Do you have multiple streams of income or are you reliant on

If You Want Active Change in Your Life…

If you want active change in your life, open up and begin with decluttering your mind, cleaning up your physical wellbeing, and sorting through your relationships. It is the groundwork needed to effect sustainable change. What will your day bring your way? There is no need for overwhelm. Sure, you need to see the BIG picture.

Trust that All Things Will be Well

Trust that all things will be well. It is a message that comes up consistently. It activates a deep knowing and a feeling of assuredness that allows you to be at peace.
