You Are

I just want to remind you of how strong and powerful you are. I know that you don’t always feel as though you are-but you definitely are.

You are a wonderful expression of God-unique and unrepeatable in every way. Someone loves you more than you will ever realize; you make all the difference for many.

You are not your mistakes or your past, unless you continue to make those same mistakes, and live in the past.

You are amazing, and gifted in your own way.

Every matter of concern has already been worked out in your favor. You just have to believe and surrender to a power and presence that is greater than us all.

Namaskar!

Valentine’s Day: A reason to celebrate

Sans the “Hallmark” aspect of it, tis the season for LOVE! Regardless of whether you are happily single, married (for some, “both”), or in a “complicated relationship”, there is someone, somewhere who adores you. Who thinks about you more than you realize and prays for you always. And if you’ve every had the capacity to love anyone in your life…You too have a reason to celebrate love. Lets toast to love!

The Nudge to Grow

A child goes to school, and finds guidance there. A child is surrounded in love, and finds nourishment there.

And then graduation day comes, as does moving day. You can’t stay where you are; no one can. Life simply won’t allow it.

Accept the nudge to grow; to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

Grow we must, grow we must! Because remaining invisibly the same is no longer an option for me.

Or you.

Life is a Special Occasion

Be gentle with yourself today. Be compassionate and take care of yourself today. Make that appointment (cancel that appointment); book that trip, write a letter to express your dormant thoughts and desires-(you don’t have to send or share it. Ever.)

Listen to music that makes you feel good (extra credit if you get up and dance it out for 3 minutes.) Put on the lipstick; the special occasion earrings, jeans, shirt, dress, suit, shoes, jacket, or tie. You woke up today…this IS the special occasion.

It is only when we take care of ourselves FIRST, that we can show any semblance of humanity, compassion, and decency to others.

Have the best day today.

And enjoy it.

By Invitation Only

Life is full of invitations; we invite people to our homes, events, and into our hearts. Never forget that an invitation can be rescinded. If an individual doesn’t have the capacity to love you, to honor your feelings; if they can’t embrace who you are TODAY, their invitation must be rescinded. Others are watching the manner in which you take care of yourself and will follow your lead; always lead by example.

The Success Blueprint

The people who are often recognized as successful are those who expend extra effort for the common goal and obtaining measurable results.

While others complain about what is going wrong, successful individuals allow this frustration to fuel their solutions. These people expect to succeed and they are relentless about achieving their goals.

Successful people understand that we’re always on an “interview.” They are clear that someone is always watching what we do and how we work. Which may lead to future opportunities if a positive connection is made, or a good impression.

They do not wait for someone to tap them on the shoulder for a promotion because they are busy making themselves indispensable. To just about everyone. It’s not what you think about them; it’s what they know to be true about themselves and what they seek to achieve in life. They do not fear stepping on the wrong toes or passing over anyone. For they understand that in this benevolent Universe there is enough opportunity for everyone. Although only a small percentage will cash in on their own gifts. Successful people see themselves as such before they’ve embarked on the task.

They seek to become their greatest self and often times will out work anyone in their midst to achieve their life’s purpose.

Becoming Self

I push past my plateaus. I am bigger than my greatest fear. I am certain that I am amazing, because I know and love amazing people; (always remember that your circle is a reflection of who you are.) I trip and sometimes fall, but I will release the pain and embrace the lesson.

I am the best; expect to receive the best; intend to give my best always. Not because of who I am, but because who God is in my life.

I am in the process of becoming my authentic Self.
