    Slow Down

    I’m often surprised and amazed at just how many beautiful things surround us all the time.  Too often I don’t see them because I’m in such a hurry  I reither don’t make time to “see” them or I don’t “see” them simply because I  take them for granted and choose not to pay attention. I’m […]

    My Mother Used To Say…

    My mother used to say, “Sit still and mind your own business”. My mother used to say this to my brothers and I when we were little kids fidgeting and arguing in the back seat of the car on long trips.  It recently occurred to me that my Mother’s words were brilliant.  Is it possible […]

    Secrets

    Reveal your secrets and you lighten the load you carry with you every day. It has been said, “We are only as sick as the secrets we keep.” Our emotional health is hindered, perhaps even jeopardized, each time we hold on to something that we might be better served by talking it over with other […]

    Change.

    Perhaps the greatest constant in our lives is change. We change every day. We change as we learn new things and are exposed to new thoughts and ideas. Too often I find myself holding on to old beliefs that contradict what I am learning today. Why is it so hard to let go of old […]

    The Truth

    “Every time I close the door on reality it comes in through the window”—Ashleigh Brilliant For me, honesty is the catalyst for spiritual health. There is no spiritual growth without being honest and it begins with ourselves. I can’t be honest with others until I am honest with myself. We do not define the truth, we […]

    Beauty

    Are you beautiful? True beauty is not found in a mirror. True beauty radiates from the inside outward. It is not defined by having flawless skin, pearly white teeth, a full head of thick dark hair, a six pack of abs or a toned butt. “True Beauty” is found beneath the skin. True beauty is […]

    Generous Receiving

    I read this quote recently. “Receiving and giving are opposite energies that are inextricably linked together in the natural flow of life, like inhaling and exhaling. If one aspect of that cycle doesn’t function, the entire cycle ceases to function and the life force cannot move freely. If you can’t inhale, you will soon have […]
