Lifestyle Changes Everyone Ought To Know About

How are your days going?

Do you get through your daily tasks with ease and simplicity or does it feel more like a struggle to get things done?

Whether you are satisfied with your day or not, I can relate to both.

There are definitely times when I feel the stress piling up and the overwhelm mounting.

And the days that go really well, almost silky smooth, I have to be honest, I cherish.

For those reasons, I signed myself up for a Master Wellness Class.

I was interested in learning how I could quantify my silkier days and better manage the rocky days.

If you can relate to this, I would like to invite you to my FREE Webinar.

I’m going to do my best to share the major highlights of what I learned to help you have better days ahead.

I hope you’ll join me.



“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

~Siddartha Guatama Buddha

Loving What Is

Loving What Is

Below is an excerpt from Byron Katie’s Book –Loving What Is
“I am a lover of what is, not because I’m a spiritual person, but because it hurts me when I argue with reality.  We can know that reality is good just as it is, because when we argue with it, we experience tension and frustration.  We don’t feel natural or balanced.  When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.”
My Dear Friends…
Doesn’t this free you up? Doesn’t it give you permission to say, ‘Ah, yes, it is all OK – I am not going to argue with what is, I can accept it and then take the steps that are necessary with ease?
Living an untruth is always stressful. So many times haven’t we denied or tried to control our reality instead of just accepting it.  And how has that worked out?  Usually it becomes at some point very painful.   
The process of  Life Recovery is just like that…loving it all…loving every broken piece of it and then some.
Maybe it’s your career, relationship, environment, finances or health that’s causing you to feel anxiety, frustration and confusion.  But if, just if, we take this approach of Loving What Is, doesn’t it feel gentler and more peaceful? Doesn’t clarity begin to focus in? Then inspiration … possibly?
If you are struggling and would like to learn how to overcome your challenges and  recover, I would love to share with you all the valuable tools that have helped me.
In Healing,

Join Me In The Present

It’s true …

We may regret the things we do at times, but most of us regret what we didn’t do!

As I witness and experience family struggles with my mother’s debilitating Alzheimer’s disease, I can’t help but contemplate my own life and yes, mortality.

I think about things now, that if I am honest with my feelings, were only fleeting moments of thought in the past.

Now, more than ever, I realize how precious life is and how important it is to live in the present time.

Someone very wise told me that learning how to live in the “present” is the greatest gift you can give yourself – that is why they call it a “present.” You become more consciously aware – there becomes a true “presence” about you and life becomes fuller and richer.

A Simple Gift

I came across an article recently that revealed the top 5 things people regret, and I thought about how this intertwines with my philosophy of living simply.

It fascinates me, even to this day, that we as humans work so hard to get ahead in life so we can afford to do the things that we “think” we want, only to find out later, when we are faced with our own mortality, our perspective changes.

What once was so important, no longer rates high or even exists for that matter.

Check out what most people say:

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.

3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

Simplifying our lives allows us the opportunity to focus on what’s really important to us. I view it as a revitalized life purpose plan – because after all, what is life without a true purpose anyway?

Creating more space in our lives – whether that means physical, emotional or mental space affords us the opportunity to be happier and healthier.

What about you? Are you ready to keep things simple and let go of what is no longer serving you well?

Having the courage to be true to ourselves, by exploring our feelings and acknowledging them, may be one of the best gifts we can give to ourselves.

Won’t you join me in the present?

What’s Your Emotional EQ?
Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify, use, understand, and manage your emotions in positive and constructive ways.

It’s about recognizing your own emotional state and the emotional state of others.  Emotional Intelligence is also about engaging with others in ways that draw people to you.

The Beauty of The Soul…

“Since love grows within you, so  beauty grows.  For love is the beauty of the soul.”

– St. Augustine

I love this quote – it makes me think in terms of  the lifestyle we are all trying to achieve.  When we love our “things” and select the true treasures that we would like to be part of our lives, our environment, our space, then we are able to display our inner beauty by manifesting outwardly in a loving, healthy way.
