Nudged Out of Neutral

There’s an unexpected and strange happening as we walk the path of growth and healing. What once sat well with us, no longer does. The disruption, chaos, or discomfort that didn’t bother us before, now causes irritation, frustration, and anger. And we may even find times we can’t understand the sudden sadness, resentment, or fear… Continue reading Nudged Out of Neutral

We Reap Where We Sow

Brilliant success is a result of the hard work that goes into producing it. Like any crop, we reap what we sow. If nothing goes in, nothing comes out. As much as we wish to have spectacular results in our life, it’s a childish dream to believe it happens merely from wishing and wanting it… Continue reading We Reap Where We Sow

Even in places of darkness, the sun continues to shine. If we have faith and continue to move, however small, we will once again step into the sunshine!

The Sun Is Always Shining

The sun is always shining. To be in the light simply depends on where we're standing. Being in the dark does not and IS NOT permanent. When we keep moving, we move through the dark times, and can once again step into the light that illuminates our path and provides optimism and hope. We can never get to where we want to be by standing where we are now. The earth maintains balance by altering sunlight and darkness. It must in order to exist. The same is true for life. Taking time to observer nature can help us to reconnect with this truth! We have the capability to make it through if we continue to believe.

Needing Inspiration or a Dose of Hope? Return to the Literary Wonderlands

Yes, living a productive and responsible life is a respectable and mature goal but it can come in the price of loosing our capacity to be lighthearted. While lighthearted is indeed a feeing of being carefree, cheerful, free and easy, and happy go-lucky, which some consider immature and irresponsible, it's also a feeling that is gentle, playful, and easygoing. Being lighthearted is a beautiful way of balancing the tension and tediousness of adult life. Take a trip down memory lane and dive into your favorite fairytale from childhood. Relax and reconnect with far-away dreams, endless possibilities, and the grit to see them through. Perhaps restore the buried hope that you can do anything you put your mind to, and your treasure is out there waiting for you!

Sure, You Can Do That…But Do You Want To?

The truth is we are not a failure by not succeeding in something which truly isn't valuable to us. The failure has already happened before it's even begun. The failure is in our perception of what we "think" will make our life more satisfactory, more content.
