Happy Thanksgiving . . .

Happy Thanksgiving . . .

As the name implies this is a time to be thankful. But then in reality, every day is a day for Thanksgiving. The reason this sometimes seems to be more of a challenge is due to the tendency to label and judge things as good or bad . . . but you already knew that, didn’t you?

This day softly give thanks for you, the wonderfully creative, talented, and generous you. Give thanks because we do. Take time this day to quietly celebrate the magnificence you are.

Breathe in the love that others have for you, knowing at times it is an unspoken love, but love none the less. Take in each breath with thanksgiving, for in reality this day is for you.

All is well . . . all is very well.

Your Strengths and Weaknesses

To truly love yourself you must first look inward and allow your heart to identify your strengths and weaknesses. Please note: do not allow your ego to label your weaknesses as faults, for they are not and this form of labeling is what leads you down the road of victimhood.

Allow your heart to love and embrace your strengths and weaknesses. Understand they are both important, for they make up the beautiful and unique you….and therein lies much to love.

Acknowledge your strengths and distribute them widely. Acknowledge your weaknesses and ask for help and assistance in these areas.

This is the answer you have been waiting for.

Honor Who You Are . . .


Honor who you are. Do not allow others to attempt to remake you into the image they have of themselves.

At the same time, honor them for who they are and do not attempt to make them into the image of who you think they should be.

Most importantly, honor the beauty of the contrasting images of all people.

Be Real In All You Do . . .

Be real in all you do and say. There is no need to be a “people pleaser” in a world that is filled full of people walking around with artificial facades, spewing platitudes of what they think others want them, as well as you, to say and be.

Be true to yourself and as a result, you will be real to all those you may encounter.

Please note: we didn’t say this will be easy, however we do say that this is very important.

Fear Is Such A Destructive Motivator . . .

Fear is such a destructive motivator . . . and unfortunately you see it being played out around you all the time.

Do not let fear destroy you. You have the choice not to play. You may have to do a few things differently than you have in the past . . . however, that is a good thing . . . a growth thing.

Release the past that does not serve you and honor this moment . . . for today is a new day!
