[success]Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better. ~ Samuel Beckett[/success] How many times have you let what you couldn’t do, interfere with what you could do?  We’ve all been in the same boat, with a choice to either accept things as they are or decide we have the power to change them.  And we have, and we can. It’s time to stop worrying about yesterday’s failures; time to pick yourself up and start over.  So things didn’t work out as planned…we’ve all been there…and we’ll probably all be there again.  All being guided by our own private steering committee, charting a new course here and adjusting the old course there. Life is a true voyage of discovery.  And every now and then we need to slow down, take a breath, look around and decide if it’s time to alter course, or even start all over again.…

[success]Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart. ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach[/success] Who hasn’t wanted something to be different right now? There were times I fell into the state of wishing and hoping that something in my life would be different than it currently was.  Being brutally honest, I can still fall into that trap today…it just doesn’t happen as often and it doesn’t last as long.  But I need to keep kicking that someday syndrome right out of my life. Today I’m aware  that being in the state of mind of ‘wanting’ something isn’t helpful and will always keep it ‘out there’.  The place, the only place to dwell in, is the place where we can, through our…

Everyone wants to be loved.  Even those whose very actions seem to be the entire opposite of love may well be crying out for just that…to feel loved. For some, they seek the love they never experienced as children, for others they try to recapture that unconditional love they did have as a little one. Love can move mountains, rise above the most seemingly insurmountable difficulties, knock down walls, open doors that appear shut tight and gulf the greatest chasms.  It’s no wonder that everyone wants to experience it. Love is the stuff of the universe. Who doesn’t want to live in a more beautiful and loving world? Many of us want to support change for the betterment of our current world and there have been, and are, lots of wonderful people all working towards the worthy aim of making our world a better place. I vote for that. As…

If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.  Abraham Maslow You’ve just had an experience that got on your last nerve. Your latest and greatest project was a huge bust. Your car died, a sudden, unexpected, death. You had a miserable day. Everything that could go wrong did. You were the dumpee or dumper. Basically life sucks. Nothing feels good. And here you are sitting in your poopy pants, in your ‘woe is me’ state of mind. Well sitting in poopy pants probably isn’t all that comfortable. Think crying babies. And worse, we’re planting seeds of discontent and you’d better believe we’ll be reaping the harvest some soon day. As an added incentive…if you needed one, The HeartMath Institute conducted an experiment that our feelings and emotions have a direct effect on our DNA,…

[success]It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision. ~ Helen Keller[/success] What was your vision for the day?  Did you decide beforehand you you’d feel when the day was over? Were you following your dreams? Did you ask yourself what you wanted to do, or what you needed to do?  And did you choose? Anything. Or did you wander from task to task, putting some off here, or wanting to get another just perfect? Did you have any sense of purpose today? I know I fall short here…more often than I care to admit. Working on it. I mean well, but there are times when my follow through is less than stellar. Two things stand in my way.  Even though I’ve begun to imagine it being other than this in my life, the reality hasn’t yet caught up with how it’s working out in my mind’s eye. So…
