Be Yourself

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

Society has many preconceived rules, notions, and beliefs about who we “should” be and what that “should” look like.

Unfortunately, this often leads us to creating a facade of who we actually are and maintaining the facade fosters a constant fear of being discovered.

When we stop measuring ourselves according to external concepts and our perceived notions of other people’s judgments, we allow ourselves to become authentic reflections of our ultimate essence.

Only you can foster fear or promote peace within yourself.  It all depends on if you choose to perpetuate the facade of your image or trust the truth of your goodness.

Riding the Cosmic Wave

Monday, May 16th, 2016

When we stop trying to determine the where, when, and how we THINK our life should go, we don’t have to struggle and resist against the current that is constantly flowing through our lives.  Swimming against the current is how we often get ourselves banged up and hurt, not to mention disappointed.

Letting go into the current of life is what we can control, not the wave of life itself.

By choosing to trust where life is taking us, while keeping positive thoughts in our minds, and loving feelings in our heart – all things within our control – we can actually surf the cosmic wave of the Universe, which invariably delivers us at the perfect time, to the perfect place, in a most amazing way.

Riding the wave can be easy, it’s the letting go, trusting, and allowing the ride that requires effort.

Hallmark Holidays

Monday, May 9th, 2016

While I love celebrating and being celebrated, I find Hallmark holidays a bit challenging.
I want every day to be one where those I love, and whom love me, choose to acknowledge, enjoy, and celebrate each other with mutual gratitude.

So much of our life has become rote and routine.  We tend to do the same things at the same time in the same way.  It’s easy to follow through without much personal engagement…Flowers and chocolates on Valentine’s day, cards and gifts on Mother’s and Father’s days…While these are all lovely, I prefer to receive acknowledgments on random days…Not because Hallmark is reminding me or my loved ones to show appreciation

I aspire to show my love and gratitude every day to those I love.  And personally, I find unexpected flowers, notes, and gifts mean way more to me, as they truly feel like they come from the heart of whomever is giving them.

Being a Fit

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

When we start new relationships, whether professional, personal, or romantic, it can be easy to want to try to be what you think the other person will like.  People pleasing is something that many of us practice so much growing up, we do it without considering if we are also pleasing ourselves.

I propose that the best way to be in relationship with another, whether a new or old connection, is to focus on being your best most loving self, quirks and all.

While it can be hard to be the true you, opening up to being accepted or rejected by those in your life, over time it becomes much harder always trying to please another person, especially when you’re not actually being yourself.

If someone doesn’t like you, or you don’t like someone else, it doesn’t make either of you wrong or bad, simply not a fit.
We cannot be a fit with everyone.
I invite you to be you – fit into your own self – exactly as you are – without judgment -
only love.
And in this way, you will also attract to you those who are a fit and will celebrate and adore the real you.
