Big news!

Squeaky clean!

Squeaky clean!

When I find myself worrying, I have to remind myself of the many, many times I’ve worried…and how it didn’t do one bit of good!

I know. I know…it’s not easy. But really, if you think about it, isn’t it a lot harder to worry all the time? And really, I have to get really honest myself when this seems hard and that it’s not working. I have to ask myself how often am I actually do this. At least it’s not hard to see that we can’t reach a destination when we are not on a path that reaches it or one that travels away from it. The good news is that we don’t need the whole map of this path, nor do we need to know how to do this; we just need to recognize that what we’ve been doing isn’t working and be open to another way. 

I also don’t stop with the reminder that worry has never helped; I turn within to what does help. I turn within to the deep sense of calm that is always present, just waiting for me to invite it in.

Healing hearts…

Every one of us carries some pain in our hearts. The good news is that we can learn to allow our light to shine onto all darkness and pain of every heart we meet. Whether we “meet” someone online today, or a passerby, or someone we know, it doesn’t matter. Whether they come to us in just a thought, we are still meeting them today and can allow our light to shine into the darkness. The beautiful thing is that as we learn to do this, we learn just how bright our light really is, and our own heart is healed as well.

Give what you really want. It’s by giving that we discover just how much we have.  Continue Reading »

I am sooo ready!

I actually don’t like summer. (Gasp!) I love the flowers and green trees, but I really don’t like the heat and generally stay hunkered down in the air conditioning in the summer. Autumn is actually my favorite time of year (as well as Christmas time), so when September hits, I feel like a sleepy bear coming out of hibernation. Sttrreeetch…

It’s time…
