Cubic-Zirconia Mentality in a Diamond World

When a woman wears a real diamond, she markedly changes her posture, her confidence, and the way she carries herself; an interesting observation that deserves a couple of laps around our brains…you know, for the sake of understanding something about ourselves. Why do you think a stone can make such a difference in our perceived self-worth and attitude?

How to Stop Procrastinating

Hi Everyone! Today is a good day! Why? I actually got some Holiday shopping done! Understand the norm for me is rushing from store-to-store on Christmas eve searching for last minute items. Talk about procrastination... I don't know why I do it every year and, of course, I always tell myself I won't ever do it again just to end up in the same predicament on December 24th. Well, not this year!

Where Do I Start?

“There's an old Chinese proverb that says the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. If a woman can make simple pledges to change the small things, she's well on her way to leading a fuller, healthier life.” ~Florence Henderson

A Little Passion Goes a Long Way

Passion – a word that has so much energy and promise. It brings lovers together; it wins wars; it creates fine art and literature; it makes money; and it works miracles. Those who find it have the potential to do all of the above and more. What are you constantly drawn to do that gives you that feeling of accomplishment and joy? Though this may have nothing to do with your purpose, it’s likely that it can give you a clue – a direction in which to start seeking.

It’s Your Life Whether You Like It or Not…Own It!

Have you ever met someone who whines about everything? She never accepts responsibility for her actions; it’s always the fault of someone else. It’s fair to say that this perpetual attitude is precisely why she is living a life of despair and frustration. She has never realized that it’s her Journey to own and treasure. After all, isn’t it much more fun to pass the proverbial buck on to Aunt Millie or anyone who willingly enables us to do so? For a while, perhaps, then it gets old…excruciatingly old.

What’s In Your Wake?

Well, ladies, I've been loving my new apartment with a lake view. It has given me some true relaxing time staring out at the reflection that somehow always looks more interesting than the real thing. One thing I've been paying attention to is a group of ducks that lives by the lake. They are out swimming, flying, and playing every day. I'm thankful for the fact that I get on-the-spot epiphanies from nature's performance quite often. This week was no exception.

5 Life-Changing Reasons to Journal

As a writer and Journey Coach, I will always advocate journaling as a way to express your innermost feelings and thoughts without fear of judgement or comments from others.

One White Duck

Do you ever just see yourself, your life, and your future as being a part of one big scene of camouflaged wilderness? You know...it all seems to blend in without uniqueness or boldness. I had an experience as I was looking out on the lake last night, and I valued it so much, I thought it worthy of posting. It's extremely dark in the area where I live.

Look Both Ways Before Crossing the Street

Moving ahead in life (crossing the street) is just another way of bringing clarity about who you are and understanding of "what" lies before you. Though there may be scary things or challenges to that move, it still is a part of life, the "real" life we are supposed to live.

Best of Fortunate Friday

Hi everyone. I wanted to dig into the archives today and give you some of the best of Fortunate Friday. Read one or all of them. I find it helpful to go back and read things a second or third time, as our first exposure to info or inspiration might not be timely or in the perfect season. I hope you are all growing and finding your special paths of purpose.

Finding Perception

I'm spending a lot of time figuring things out and planning for some major life changes. It's not good or bad; it just is. I've accepted that labeling the events of our lives doesn't always serve well in the emotional department. Perception is the only thing that really matters.

Don’t Stop Believing In Your Journey

OK, so I borrowed Journey's famous song title for this post, but please bear with me as I make a point that will change the way you see your life. Take a look at the refrain from the song that has now made a HUGE comeback thanks to that little TV show called GLEE.
