Hope & Potentials

Food for Thought from Gil Atkinson:

                        “Form the habit of saying ‘Yes’ to your good ideas.
                          Then write down all the reasons why they will work.

                          There will always be plenty of people around
                          to tell you why they won’t work.”


Food for Thought (I don’t know the author):

                        Learning to BELIEVE – Winning the “Battles of the Day”

                               Believe 1.  Learn to choose the thoughts that enter our minds.
                               Believe 2.  Learn to handle our hurts positively.
                               Believe 3.  Learn to respond positively to temporary defeats and setbacks.

Food for Thought from Don Ward:

           “Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.”

So much more can happen with our hands open. Infinite possibilities. Closing and stubbornly maintaining our grip is often what keeps us stuck.

Life itself, when understood and utilized for what it is, is sweet. Appreciate, learn from and work with whatever happens in everyday life..... the natural result of living is happiness. Life is fun. Enjoy the simple, the quiet, the natural and plain.

Food for Thought from Gil Atkinson:

             “No one can really predict to what heights you might soar.
               Even you will not know until you spread your wings.”

Each new day is a gift from God.  So remember, whether it's a good day or a bad's always a God loves you day!

There are no greater treasures than the highest human qualities such as compassion, courage and hope. Not even tragic accidents or disasters can destroy such treasures of the heart.

It is about remembering to value who I am today, how I got here and where I want to go. In other words, rather than trying to fix what I think is wrong with me - which I do more often than I care to admit - be a little kinder and appreciate the road it took to get to where I am in my life. Keep going!

“Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.” ~Thomas Jefferson

“Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins.”

Energies of life

Food for Thought from William Bradfield:

                        “There are those whose lives affect all others around them.
                        Quietly touching one heart, who in turn, touches another.
                        Reaching out to ends further than they would ever know.”

Learning from other people is as important as learning from our own experiences. Although unsolicited advice can be annoying and sometimes irrelevant to our own experiences, having open ears and an open mind might save us years of regret. Besides, we can always choose not to consider an opinion.

Mental Outlook

Smile more. We all have a choice. We can choose an inner dialogue of self encouragement and self motivation or we can choose one of self defeat and self pity. Choice is a power we all have. Smile more! It's how you choose to respond.

Food for Thought from Jeffery J. Mayer:
        “If you haven’t got the time to do it right,
          when will you find the time to do it over?”

There is no priority like the priority that you take. Don't look for the easy path, look for the productive one. Whatever you do must have some degree of personal meaning to you before you can move on to it. The joy of participation is what puts the value in our lives.

Today I choose joy

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”

Nature is very versatile. It has so many facets to it. Every tiny part of nature harmoniously coexists with every other part.

Mother Nature

 "Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."

—John Muir, Our National Parks

Be willing to step outside of your normal limits and viewpoints and see the world in different ways. This is the time to see a bigger picture.

Everywhere, everyday.....

Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child. The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, "Nothing, I just helped him cry"

Food for Thought from Joseph Campbell

   “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”

To build, to grow

One of the key elements of all relationships is that they are healthiest when they grow as they choose. You are healthiest when you can take the steps of action knowing that they are yours and just do them without permission and without need to gain permission and without need for self defense.

We grow in relationships

Without relationships...... There is no joy. There is no laughter. There is no magic.

Relationships are not guaranteed. Relationships are work. You don't have to fix the other person. You just have to participate with the relationship. In order to participate with the relationship you have to embrace the relationship for what it is rather than the illusion of what you think it should be.

What we are seeking in the transition is to be leaders of Self, to be leaders of our own Participation, to be the queens and kings of our own Realm of Existence as well as beneficial queens and kings to the rest of the World. You always have a choice. Infinite possibilities!

It's about focus. If you can stand back or close enough in your focus, you can find that point of power where you are not the victim of life but the participant with life.

Self Knowledge

       Discernment is quite something at every step of the way!

Tuesday, May 23, 2017


Nothing we do is ever done in the vacuum of aloneness. Everything we have done is somehow linked to a network form of energies. We are the participants With Life.

Enjoy everyday

Every tiny part of nature harmoniously co-exists with every other part. There is unity in harmony. It is magical. We need harmony in our lives too. The frequency has got to be rhythmic and harmonious, to take proper shape. Nature is ours first teacher. Nature teaches us so many simple, yet invaluable lessons of life, which would improve the quality of human life.  Everyday, we can learn something from it. The lessons it teaches are unfathomable and never-ending. Nature is an abode of learning and a treasure trove of wisdom. All great philosophers in the world have been students of Mother Nature.  It does not take a very wise man to learn from nature. All it takes is some amount of time and observation. And believe me, you will not regret it!

Just be

The older I get the more I realize; I just want the simple things with life: comfy home, good food and surrounded by the people I love.

Your Choices

"There are many ways to the Divine. I have chosen the ways of song, dance, and laughter" -- Rumi

Wednesday, April 19, 2017


We so often forget to make time just to be quiet with ourselves and it is so important for our well-being. Take the time this week to sit quietly and listen to your true Self. Allow yourself to relish in stillness. 

Beautiful words of Rumi-

All Relationships

So, I'm running around like a CRAZY woman, trying to get WAY more done than is humanly possible... when suddenly MY PHONE RINGS and I think oh no, WHAT NOW?! But then I see it's a Friend and I SMILE, and, for a while anyway, things aren't quite so hectic. My Friend lifts my mood and keeps me laughing through the chaos. What more could anyone ask for in a FRIEND?

Giver & Taker

A Thought for the day.

"A hug is the one present,  that's always worth giving!"

A special note about hugging:
Hugging is healthy.  It helps the body's immune system.  It cures depression.   It reduces stress.  It's rejuvenating.  It has no unpleasant side effects.  It is God's miracle drug!  It is all natural, it contains no chemicals,  artificial ingredients, no pesticides, and no preservatives!

Hugging is practically perfect.  There are no parts to break down, no monthly payments, non-taxable, non-polluting, and of course ........ fully returnable! 

A big hug,  is the best gift anyone can give.  The beauty of a big hug is,  you can be............a giver AND a taker,  at the same time!

Stand tall

Food for Thought from Max Dupree:

“The greatest thing is, at any moment, to be willing to give up who we are in order to become all that we can become.”

Self Empowered

Let’s all “choose to be me” and become truly self-empowered!

Wednesday, March 22, 2017


Part of standing up for what you believe in is learning to be courageous. Courage doesn't mean you're not afraid. Many courageous people are afraid, but they act anyway because they know it's important. If you really believe in your cause, you need to act on it despite your fear.

Food for Thought from Michael Nolan:
                “It’s not who we are that holds us back, it’s who we think we’re not.”

We come to earth to learn and to evolve. We are here for the expansion of our soul.  We are all here on earth to understand that we create our reality. We are powerful creators, with every vibration and energy we send out to the world and hold through our acts, words and thoughts.

Heart/Head Connection

Food For Thought from Nelson Mandela:
                “A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.”

Simpler Life

Embrace more.  Change nothing until you see it for what it is and it's never bad.  It's neutral. You don't fix things because they're bad.  You change things because you wish a desired polarity.

Life is grand, full of magic, hope and possibility.

However, sometimes it’s hard to see how lucky and fortunate we are to be here. We get so caught up in our daily stresses that we completely forget how awe-inspiring and miraculous living really is. We go through the motions, get in a rut and are busy putting out one fire after the next in an attempt to keep our lives in balance.

One Thought

Create your own Sunshine by bringing your own sunshine along. The beautiful thing about sunshine is that it spreads. So, my friends, you keep shining that sunshine of yours, and I'll keep shining my sunshine and pretty soon, the world will be a brighter place.
