Turn a Blog into a Book

That’s exactly what I did. I’ve been writing blog posts for 3 years fairly consistently up until almost a year ago. I felt like I wrote all I could at the time so I took a break. My posts consist mainly of my own personal growth experiences. I love to share what I’ve learned withContinue reading “Turn a Blog into a Book”

Let’s Cut Tea and Coffee – That’ll Surely Help the Bottom Line

I’ve held many positions within organizations – manager, customer service front-line, running an owner’s million dollar business, project manager, contractor, and employee left to my own devices. Every once in a while this quote from Werner Erhard comes into my consciousness:

Self-Love: An Important Discovery

Every single judgment we have about ourselves – conscious or unconscious – diminishes any hope we have for achieving self-love.  Every single slight or negative thought detracts from reaching our goal.  We’re programmed and conditioned into believing we are never enough.  Look around.  So much pressure, stress and strain to be perfect – how canContinue reading “Self-Love: An Important Discovery”

Moving From Fear into Action and Engagement

At one point a few years ago, people who fear public speaking were coming into my awareness.  I can remember back when I had that same fear but was cured of it when the meeting-script binder was grabbed from my hands and literally tossed into the group by my trainer.  The group loved it andContinue reading “Moving From Fear into Action and Engagement”

Thinking You Know Something may Prevent a Miracle from Happening in Your Life

An interesting notion.  I was reading a friend’s blog post and had the realization: Miracles don’t come from anything we “know.”  Just the opposite in fact.  You can’t plan a miracle, nor can you know how they will happen.  Miracles come from the unknown, many times literally from nothing – that’s why they’re miracles!

Finding Your Humanity in Times of Stressful and Uncertain World Politics

When it comes to the topic of transformation, Werner Erhard is my go-to person.  I recently watched a video on compassion with Werner and Dr. Jim Doty, one of the world’s leading neurosurgeons.  I found it extremely beneficial in that I learned we, as humans, are hard-wired to care, it’s our default state and it’sContinue reading “Finding Your Humanity in Times of Stressful and Uncertain World Politics”

Creating a Future of Possibility

Imagine what life would be like without judgment. As far as I can tell, judgment is pervasive and automatic: we do it without realizing. We judge ourselves and we judge others. We have opinions and we make comparisons. Our brain does this in split seconds and before we know it, our opinion or judgment isContinue reading “Creating a Future of Possibility”

A Long-Awaited Change is Coming: Don’t be Surprised if Your Life Starts Shifting in a Powerful Way!

Back in the Spring of 2018, I felt an exciting, welcomed consciousness change in our midst that was having an apparent effect on people.  I was reading articles and blogs discussing significant changes taking place in people’s lives, starting with making big changes to their environment.  Many people were moving and/or clearing out their possessionsContinue reading “A Long-Awaited Change is Coming: Don’t be Surprised if Your Life Starts Shifting in a Powerful Way!”

How Paying Attention to Your Words Can Increase Your Life Force and Vitality

Our words contribute to healthy living and are just as important to us as good nutrition and exercise.  Our words are powerful and carry weight.  If we’re not careful, continually being casual with our word and promises may lead to unconscious feelings of guilt, unworthiness, self-blame and depression.  Sound severe?  Over time, this negatively effectsContinue reading “How Paying Attention to Your Words Can Increase Your Life Force and Vitality”

Transforming Death into Life through Creation

A fellow blogger and amazing photographer I follow on WordPress, Amy Rose, recently lost a dear friend and in the same week, was told her mother has only months to live. The photos she posted on her most recent blog (the featured image above is one) capture the power of her emotions as she wasContinue reading “Transforming Death into Life through Creation”
