What is Meant for You is Meant for You

No thing and no one can take from you what is destined for you. Easily said. But easily believed? (I'm thinking back to when I didn't get a job that had my name written all over it and was to propel my career. I am now incredibly thankful for that 'loss'). Surrender a scarcity mentality. And not only in the area of money, but as it relates to all areas of life. With our choosing to believe that we have enough and we are enough despite not getting a job, a promotion, the person, the thing, the place that we projected as 'successful,' we build our trust muscles. Exercise is so much more than just physical, it's mental health too. ...

One Baby Step Today

One. Baby. Step. Today. One. Not two. Not even one and a quarter. Just one. One is on the other end of zero. Zero is nothing, one is something. Do one thing, or rather something, as compared to nothing. A baby is small. And certainly not a giant. Not quite a toddler. Make that one thing--that something-- just a small itty bitty thing.

Let's toot our horn some, yeah?) Long story short, the family night out was postponed since our youngest started showing signs of a nasty stomach bug. 'Ugh' to the bug. While it was easy to harp on about no dressing up, no dining along the boardwalk, and of course, no birthday dessert accompanied by a singing waitstaff, it took some internal (and external) dialogue to raise my vibration and shift my...

Age Excusitis

How many times have we heard (or said) "I'm too old" or "I'm too young" to do that (whatever 'that' may be). What exactly is the right age to really charge and seize opportunities? Is it 20? 32? Oh goodness, did we miss it? Has the right age already passed?!! Or is there still time until we enter the right age? And should we just wait until then before we really get busy and charge full speed ahead, pursuing our dreams and doing what makes us feel fantastic? What if the right age is right now? Geez, that would mean we would have to heal from age excusitis. We would have to live--not settle--now. No regrets. No waiting. Just doing. There...
