Why Forgive?

Forgiveness frees you ~ mind, body and soul ~ so you can enjoy your life again.  When you hold grudges or keep telling the story of how someone hurt you, betrayed you or broke your heart, you store that poison and toxicity all over your body. It is only hurting you, so releasing anger and bitterness, allows you to move forward and live a fulfilling life. I have taught myself how to release negativity. It… Read More »Why Forgive?

How Much Beauty Are You Missing?

I’m embarrassed to tell you that there was a time when I was so miserable and  depressed, that I didn’t see any beauty in the world. I thought there was nothing special about the place where I live. Now I am always taking pictures and making videos outside because I am in awe of the beauty around me. I didn’t move. I just changed my mindset. I taught myself to be grateful and positive. That… Read More »How Much Beauty Are You Missing?

It requires patience and persistence to pursue our dreams. It calls for a deep belief that we are worthy and capable of having whatever our hearts’ desire.  We need time to dream and let our dreams linger, so we can feel the delight and pleasure in our very souls. … Read More »You Can’t Rush Greatness

Daffodils, A Fresh Beginning

Daffodils bloom early in the spring and are symbolic of rebirth and new beginnings. What an inspirational image for us as we push ourselves daily to grow in our confidence and ability to connect with people in a positive way that builds relationships.  Each day is a new beginning.  Seize the opportunity to be stronger, inspired, resilient – so we blossom into the beautiful people we are meant to be.

The Power of Pausing

There was a time in my life when it seemed like no matter how hard I tried to “fix things,” I was always uncomfortable, irritated and depressed from my interactions with certain people. I was determined to find effective ways to deal with them that didn’t diminish my confidence or energy level.   One day, in the middle of a confrontation, I decided to walk away.  It was the most awkward, uncomfortable thing I have… Read More »The Power of Pausing

Obstacles Make Us Stronger

Obstacles push us to the next level.  Hardships wake us up – nudge us – make us think, “Why did this happen? What do I need to do next?  What am I supposed to learn here?” Our difficult relationships make us uncomfortable and angry.  They shake us up.  We usually fret about the situation, but a great strategy is to focus on the lesson.  How am I meant to grow from this? What did I learn? … Read More »Obstacles Make Us Stronger
