Are You Grateful?

How many times a day do you show gratitude? We seem to be so consumed by living in routine that many of us don't even spend time any time, throughout the day, being grateful. Did you wake up this morning? Show gratitude. Did you have something to eat? Put on fresh clothes? Took a warm shower? Slept in a warm shelter? Be grateful. We tend to act kindly towards others out of kindness. We do good deeds because we are kind. But doesn't it feel great when someone acknowledges what we have done or said? Doesn't that change your perception of life for that moment, when you are having a bad day? So why do we not show that same...

Our Minds Are Such Powerful Forces

There comes a time in your life where you just sit and reflect….. Who am I kidding, I’m having these moments on a regular basis. I sit and think about everything that has gone wrong in my life, everything that has gone right. People that have hurt me and those that brought me moments and experiences of joy. I remember numerous occasions where I sat alone thinking where did I go wrong. Why do I feel so alone? Was it something I said? Was it something I did? Or didn’t do? I sat there for hours and thought of a million questions to justify why I feel alone. Then I would shift energy and think of it in another perception....

It’s Time for Change

I guess it’s time to write something on a personal note. It’s been a while.    I’ve been in a dark place for some time now. Needed to take a break from my business and soul search.  Didn’t think it was going to be this overwhelming.    From my surroundings drastically changing within a blink of an eye, my whole perception of life changed. And it wasn’t for the good. In the beginning I was angry and fed up. Realizing that these emotions were triggering deep inner truth to come out.    You see, many people can’t handle their own truth. I used to be one of them. Now I am learning to embrace it. It’s not easy. I’ve been...

Be Grateful for The Little Things

I hear people say "This is life"What exactly do they mean by that? Is there a right or wrong way to live it? Who said that we were to come to live as robots. Wake up. Get yourself and kids ready. Take kids to school/daycare. Go to work. Pick kids up. Prepare dinner. Chores. Get ready for bed. And the cycle continues. I hear people say "I need a vacation"What does that mean? What are you trying to get away from? "Time away. Peace and quiet". So what does that mean for those who are unable to "vacation"? "I have to work to put food on the table. A roof over our heads. Clothes on our backs." I get that....
