Life

My brother wasn’t the kind of guy to buy presents for people. He hated shopping and would rather give someone money to buy what they wanted. I always teased him about that 🙂 For my birthday in 2010 he gave me this necklace, just a few months before he passed away. I remember when I…

Entrances and Exits

Most everyone is familiar with the phrase “grand entrance.” When a baby is born, she or he makes a grand entrance. When the bride begins her walk down the aisle, she makes a grand entrance. When Scarlett O’Hara famously walked down the stairs of Tara, she made a grand entrance. When we leave a room,…

Old Baggage

It seems it’s pretty easy these days to become mired in the negativity that seems to be enveloping our planet. I’ve heard from several sources that it’s simply the cycle of time when we and our planet are evolving … meaning that we’re breaking away from old paradigms in order to bring in the new. Is…

In Response

Recently I saw a video on Facebook berating people in Mississippi who, the author claimed to be stupid because they voted for President Trump. The video pinpointed people who live in poverty. There are a lot of people living in poverty in this country. In fact, all over the world. It doesn’t make them stupid. …

Entrepreneurial Spirit

Were You Raised with An Entrepreneurial Spirit? If you can’t seem to get ahead or make progress with your business because you lack an entrepreneurial spirit of giving, it may be time to assess how you were brought up. Many parents raise their children to be giving, while others are intent on having their children…

What’s Sucking Up Your Time?

Do You Know What’s Sucking Up Your Time? We live in hectic times and our most precious commodity is and always will be time. You can’t grow more of it and when it’s gone you can’t get it back. How often do you tell yourself that you can’t do what you want to do because…

In Case They Look at You Funny

A quote from one of my favorite people, Mike Dooley, who has written several books that I love … “In case they look at you funny when you tell them of your loftiest dreams, goals, and desires, all you have to do is turn your head sideways, raise an eyebrow, and slowly say, “I… have……

Living on Purpose

It seems as if there are a lot of people feeling an emptiness these days, kind of like being hollowed out. Could it be that they just haven’t found their calling; their purpose? I’ve experienced it myself in the past, which is the reason I hope this post can be of benefit to someone else….

Post-Thanksgiving

Now that I’m out of my food coma from Thanksgiving, I just want to say how grateful I am to my family, friends and fellow bloggers for their continued support of me and my journey. Life is a dance and it doesn’t matter whether you tap, waltz, hip-hop, swing, or any other kind – we’re…

Goddess Gratitude

(I don’t know where I got this, but I found it in my archives, so to whoever wrote it, I am grateful). And so it is . . .  From the Goddess of my being I give forth thanks. For the love that I am, for the love in my life and the love that…

Somebody’s Hero

The truth is that words can heal and words can hurt. It’s our choice which ones we use. Choose wisely and we can be somebody’s hero. Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’  

Look Up

According to the stats provided by WordPress, this is my 666th post. I just didn’t want to put that number in as my title. Creepy – that whole 666 thing. Mark of the beast and all. Is it folklore? I don’t know, but I’m not taking any chances. I came across this video posted by…
