Your Weekly Dose of Diva: Rules to live by…

Can I start by saying that all the comments and connection for last weeks post were unbelievable. I just love it when you join in the conversation! It makes writing that much more rewarding. Sometimes when you write it can feel a little like you're talking to yourself! So thank you! I felt like it would be fitting to continue on last weeks train of thought and add a little twist that a number of your comments had me pondering. Yep, this week is all about rules to live by!

Aspiring Actress From Sudan Beats Her Tormentors And Reaches For The Stars

Anyieth Kuotz is a rising actress, originating from South Sudan, who has had to beat her tormenters while proving to her negative thinking family that she could do it – she could become the actress that not only she wanted to be – but even the MC at her primary school graduation publicly announced that she should be. It seems the fact that she could always make people laugh coupled with being one of the friendliest students prepared her for the future. If only she could make her family believe that.

Your Weekly Dose Of Diva: Tales Of A Rule-Breaker

Let's talk about rules. Yes, I know...makes you want to yawn just thinking about it but hear me out. Over the last decade I have become quite a rule-breaker...not traditional rules like “thou shalt not steal” but all the rules we set for ourselves daily. Let me give you an example. When Diva my horse first came into my life I had an entire rule book on how being with a horse should look, how they should act, how a good horse behaved and so on. There was a heck of a lot of self-imposed rules that I’d built up and internalized through my previous riding experience and things I’d learned in childhood and beyond.

Bring Positive Energy & Magic Into Your Home

It is essential to realize that your living space reflects and affects your inner life, thoughts and your personal vibration… and those “things” create your life experience. So, if you bless your home and bestow it with an abundance of love and positive thought, it becomes a gracious container in which you can manifest more beauty, divine grace and abundance into your life!

It’s Bananas!

Do you ever wonder why we continue to do things the same old way just because it's the way we were taught or it's the accepted way? I'm finding that I'm questioning everything I ever learned and wondering if there is better and more efficient ways to accomplish my goals. I'm pretty sure that there is, and I'm determined to find each and every one of them. As a part of my own self-development, I've realized that it's my responsibility to find the most serving ways to live, grow, and effect change for myself and the world around me.

Your Weekly Dose Of Diva: How To Deal With Brain Overload

Anyone else out there with lessons, ah-hahs and ideas coming at them at the speed of light? We are officially in summer warp speed! A time to get a little quieter, a little softer and a little stiller, even when the energy of things wants to whip you into a frenzy. I feel a horse metaphor or two coming on. But I digress.

Your Weekly Dose of Diva: A Whole Herd Of Epiphanies!

Sending you a big hello from big sky country! I’m currently ensconced in the living quarters of a horse trailer (check out my photos), on a small ranch just west of Cache Creek, BC sitting fairly squarely in the middle of one hundred thousand acres of grazing land. That is a whole lot of space!

My Path To Inspirational Women

While I have written about a lot of amazing women, most of whom have fought and won against some form of adversity or another in their lives and are now reaching for the stars, I have also found that people are asking how I find these people – and if I am practicing what I preach. In other words, am I a victim of bullying and how did I cope? So I thought that I’d make a slight detour here and tell you all about me!

Transitions

Wow! Life has sure changed in the last year since I’ve blogged. Let’s see, I moved from Virginia Beach to San Antonio, separated from the United States Navy and became a civilian for the first time in ten years, started working towards my Bachelor‘s Degree in Fashion Management and Marketing, and hmmm… oh yeah, I made another human being! Her name is Aysen, and I couldn’t be more excited about her coming into my life.

Your Weekly Dose of Diva: The Truth About Boundaries…

Boundaries. This one topic has confused and annoyed more people than you can throw a stick at (including yours truly)! Ask ten people on the street and they will all give you a different version of what a healthy boundary looks like and when it should be set. But, at the end of the day, we want some clarity (or maybe it's just me?). What is this boundary stuff all about? What is the truth about boundaries?

Just The Way You Are

It was two-thirty in the morning when she sent me the message. I could feel her stress and fear even though it was a digital communication. “I am tired of living a lie, a double life…I am gay,” she confessed. Her declaration did not move me, but her sadness and fear did. I felt sorry that she had not been able to truly be herself in this world without experiencing hate and ridicule from others. Individuality is at the core of our existence and the pursuit of it a path no other should ever block.

Even When Shit And Shadows Get Scary, I’m Still In!

You know that feeling you get when you're watching a scary movie and the heroin is snooping in a really creepy, dark place? Well, I always say to myself or out loud, "What the hell are you doing? Why are you even going down there? Are you insane? Admit it, you've done it, too! Then I realize that there wouldn't be a story or movie unless someone does something dramatic or to risk bodily harm.

The Butterfly Deserves To Fly…

I wrote the statement "The Butterfly deserves to fly" up on my white board this morning. It was meant to be an encouragement to me to get some work done on my upcoming book, The Butterfly Payoff, and it served its purpose. As I stared up at the words, though, I realized the implied message to myself revealed a much deeper cause- one that is for us all.

Be Your Best Supporter!

Do you know who your best supporter is? Is it a friend, a lover, a family member? I have discovered that, while it is beneficial and awesome to have friends and family who cheer us on, we need to have a healthful outlook toward ourselves and our lives as well. No matter what others say we can do and accomplish, until we believe in ourselves and our potential, we won't get too far. Other people can encourage us until they are blue in the face, but not reinforcing that encouragement with personal belief in the accolades or words of faith presented causes it to fall short of the positive intention.
