Heart of Gold

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and … Continue Reading

Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do … Continue Reading

Why do we get the Blues

Lately, I have been wearing a whole lot of blue (coincidentally). It’s very much a good alternative to the typical grey and black that we often see being worn this time of year.

One thing I like to remember when I’m outfitting myself is BALANCE.

Pinking of you!

 THE INVITATION by Oriah Mountain Dreamer It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool … Continue Reading
