Just when you think all is lost

It’s incredible how desperate you can feel when you believe you have hit rock bottom. It’s like shit hits the fan and you don’t know what to do accept bury your head in your hands, put your tail between your legs, run for cover or beg the universe for solutions. Yet, little do you know – YOU are the solution. You have all the answers within, you always did and what is to be will be whether you think you have...

The Carpe Diem Experiment

I woke up this morning feeling rather compelled to tell a little story about the personal journey we are all on.  It was prompted by a shattered dream one of my loved ones experienced yesterday.  I felt his pain, I truly did, but I needed him to know that there is more to this than what he may be thinking today. I needed him to know that this too shall pass. So this story is dedicated to you DayDay…and I do look forward to...

The Weight Gain Elimination Equation

Gaining weight {unintentionally} just sucks! It’s the truth. I admit it. But you CAN do something about it.  The question is, do you REALLY want to and  if so HOW BADLY?

And yet while we are in complete control of most aspects of our life from our health to our wealth, this...

When I first heard him utter those words (back in the earlier days when we were dating) I thought they sounded rather self centered and arrogant. Part of me couldn’t understand how someone could truly...

It’s time to be the Phoenix in your own life

One of my many favorite moments in the Harry Potter movies was this one, from Order Of The Phoenix, where Dumbledore escapes the wickedness of Umbridge. It isn’t so much the CGI or even the moment itself as it is the symbolism of it.  Dumbledore shows without a doubt that he cannot be burned by the villains of the hour, he will not be a helpless victim, he will be a rebel / renegade whenever necessary and he will rise again...

You are the driver on this journey

Whether you are experiencing physical, emotional pain or both, it all has a tendency to blur together doesn’t it? Like a wild and loopy roller coaster ride, the physical pain creates the emotional distress and the emotional pain creates the physical distress. You feel helpless and out of control. You don’t know what is coming next or when the nightmare will end (if it will at all). It’s just rough. At least...
