Once is Enough

We all have one shot at life. (That sounds like a really cheesy ad for an equally cheesy movie.) If you remove the dairy products, however, it IS true... We don't get to shout, "STOP! I screwed this life up big-time, can I start again  with a new one please?" You can however, take a… Continue reading Once is Enough

Be

Humans are such complicated creatures. And we lead complicated lives. They needn't be, but outside influences tend to get in the way of us just being ourselves. Everyone tries to tell us what to be. Be good. Be honest. Be brave. Be a good student. Be a good spouse, parent. Be good at your job.… Continue reading Be

Keep calm and be Crazy.

I love this lady; I think I want to be her when I grow up... I mean IF I grow up... She's totally herself and doesn't care what others think. How refreshing. The last part of the quote really got to me, "This is the oldest you've been, and the youngest you'll ever be again".… Continue reading Keep calm and be Crazy.

'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' What a powerful thought. If this was your last day on earth, how would you like to spend it? Going to a job you hate? Doing the same things you do every day? Just… Continue reading Today

One Decision

You are always one decision away from a a totally different life.   What will that decision be? Turn right or left? Take the blue pill or the red? The salad or the hamburger?

Are you living a Lie?

Let me ask you a question. Do you go through each day thinking, 'I love my life, it feels so right doing what I'm doing, it's like the stars have aligned and I just KNOW that I'm right where I should be at this moment?' If you do, then Fantastic! You've got your life together,… Continue reading Are you living a Lie?

Strong mind, Strong actions 

Today in my yoga class, the teacher encouraged us to create our own mantra to chant as we did our practice. The mantra could be a word or words to chant inwardly so I chose, "strong mind, strong body". As I was struggling to hold Downward Dog (I have very poor upper body strength so… Continue reading Strong mind, Strong actions
