Anchor Your Dreams

Anchor Your Dreams

Are you being called to action? I certainly am. The universe is asking me to live up to my good intentions and values. Intending something doesn’t seem to be enough.

What’s Your Story?

Recently, I’ve been reminded about the importance of a good story. As a writer, it’s embarrassing that I needed to be reminded!

Journey to Joy – Small Improvements

Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product. – Eleanor Roosevelt Lately, I’ve been asking myself if I have it backwards having joy as my goal. Based on my experiences last fall with blogging and practicing better attitude, I’ve come to the conclusion that happiness as a goal is elusive. much like chasing own’s own tail.

What’s in your billfold?

Despite the silly reference, this blog isn’t about the credit cards, cash or cute photos in your wallet. This is a fun way of asking what money beliefs you have. This question was asked in an e-book on abundance. At first I was annoyed, then I acknowledged it might be good to know, especially for…

Lucky in Love

Are you lucky in love? Do you believe in luck? Do you believe in love? Luck and love are big parts of our lives. Take a peek at the tabloids next time you’re at the grocery store. We are obsessed with love, relationships, pain, drama, luck, lotteries, and Vegas. I believe that luck is mostly…

Pain as Motivation

Pain as motivation and fuel for change. What an interesting perspective. A friend of mine shared this inspiration from his Tony Robbins’ workshop. It got me thinking about this last year. It has been a challenging one for me. As with most things, it depends on how we look at it. Some might see the…
