Reclaim Your Inner Power

One of the best things I did in 2015 was establishing healthy boundaries and accepting full responsibility for my thoughts, emotions and behaviour.

No more allowing others to squander away my time with their prolonged meaningless whining. No more permitting their opinions to dictate whether I would have a good, bad or ugly day!

No more externalizing of blame... instead choosing to forgive myself for any mistakes and chugging along focused on my goals.

Challenges became opportunities, and negative thoughts were replaced with realistic inner monologues. I did not need any more strength as I discovered how strong I already was and how much knowledge & love lay within me to share with the entire world.

And I understood that Inner Peace truly lay within...not without.

Reclaim your Inner Power....and trust me, Miracles will start happening!

Ode to Every Teacher

None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody - a parent, teacher, mentor, guide, spiritual guru, colleague or friend, bent down and helped us pick up our boots.
Books ignited hope, imagination and my greatest love for learning more.
Every mountain, ocean, river, tree and living being was a teacher in some form or another.
I also learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind. Silence in meditation was golden as I discovered that there is no greater teacher than my own soul.
Every day I share my gratitude with everyone who helped me on this journey and everything that I have been blessed with. Never forgetting that the greatest appreciation lies not in simply uttering these words, but in living by them.
