Desperate For Change But Frozen By Fear…

Desperate For Change But Frozen By Fear…

Making a life change is no joke.   It’s one thing to dream about a different life but to take the leap is a whole other beast.   The beast is FEAR.  This is where most people will give up.   First our heart speaks and we have this exhilaration of excitement of how incredible life could...

Our Primal Instinct…Are You Connected?

Our Primal Instinct…Are You Connected?

If I asked how you feel inside, what would you say?   In today’s society we are trained to live super busy lives, juggling a million things, and trying to survive the day.  Most times when we do have downtime we find more busy things to do. We are chronically distracted.   You know what...

How to Not Look Back on Your Life With Regret

How to Not Look Back on Your Life With Regret

I’ve been thinking a lot in the last year about what I want my life to be.   I think we all tend to fall into this pattern of “the norm” and think we are living.   But it’s so clear with how unhappy people are these days that this boring chaotic “normal” existence is not feeding our souls.  Can...

What If The Answer To Our Problems Is “Simple”?

What If The Answer To Our Problems Is “Simple”?

Our endless problems overwhelm us.   They overwhelm us because we meditate on them and think of the worst scenarios to go along with them.   I did this for the majority of my life.   Give me a problem and I’ll turn it into a fiery monster and worry myself into oblivion!   The most...

4 Ways To Put The “Happy” Back In The Holidays

Do you ever feel beaten down and battered by life?   Your soul is drained from the obstacles and suffering you’ve been through and some days you just don’t feel like you can carry on?   Or worse, you want everyone else to pay for your pain? We typically respond to hard things and suffering with...

When Darkness Falls

When Darkness Falls

Sometimes in life we get placed somewhere that ends up being a very difficult and dark environment.   Have you ever started a new job and absolutely hated it? Maybe it was a problem with management or a problem with your peers.   I think we’ve all been there.   It doesn’t have to be a job, it...

Expectations Are Stealing Our Life Experiences

Expectations Are Stealing Our Life Experiences

Expectations.  We know of them.   We know we have them.   But do we realize the depth of which we have them and what a huge impact they have on our lives and those around us?      Are a lot of your actions based on what you think other people want you to do or how they want you to act?   Do...

Living In The Now

Living In The Now

Are you stressed out most of the time?  Overwhelmed by everything in your life?   Is your mind constantly going a hundred miles an hour?  Do you have a short fuse? Full of anxiety? Do you feel like you are merely “surviving” the day?   I spent a good chunk of my life this way.   I was focused...

Want A Positive Life? Think About What You Are Thinking About…

Do you realize that our thoughts determine our moods and reactions?  They dictate whether we live happy and peaceful or chaotic with anxiety and stress.     I used to just let my thoughts run wild in my mind.   I never realized that I had the power to control what I allowed into my mind.  ...

What Mask Are You Wearing?

What Mask Are You Wearing?

Do you realize that a lot of things we do in our lives are based on what others think of us or what we want them to think of us?   It’s amazing how people focused we are nowadays and we don’t even realize it.   Many years ago if you would have said I was living for others, I’d say no way, I...

We live in a chaotic time.   There are scary things happening, we’re stressed, we’re overworked, we’re in debt, we’re sick, we’re over extended.   There always seems to be some kind of storm going on in our lives.      All of this causes chaos in our minds to where we can’t hear our hearts. ...

Stop Living a Fear Based Life!

Stop Living a Fear Based Life!

Fear.  It comes in so many forms that most of the time we don’t even realize we are making decisions based on fear.  It sneaks in, it deceives us. Fear is a liar.   When we worry, when we stress, when we’re jealous, when we judge others, when we are insecure, when we follow the crowd...these...

Complaining is Draining!

Complaining is Draining!

Complaining is a tough subject.   We all do it. We all have that urge to “vent” when we are going through hard things.   Do you know anyone who constantly complains? If so, how does it make you feel when you’re around that person?   It feels heavy and exhausting doesn’t it? I have a few of those...

A Childlike Heart…

A Childlike Heart…

There is nothing more precious than the heart of a child.   Children live fully from their hearts and dream endlessly.

Want to Feel Happier? Try Kindness…

When we are suffering, going through hard times, when we’re cranky, tired,  have work stress, family stress, not feeling well...the last thing we want to do is be bothered with other people or be nice.      The reason we feel that way is because we have given our problem all the power....

Focusing on Thankfulness Changed My Life!

In America we have abundance.   Even if we are barely making ends meet we are considered wealthier than 75% of the world.   Instead of living in poverty, we live with heavy stress and pressure. Sometimes abundance takes away simplicity and causes chaos instead.   Every day we have a million...
