“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.” ~ Australian Aboriginal Proverb

What is the purpose of my life? What is the meaning of true fulfillment? What do I really want? Why am I really here on this planet? These are questions that perpetually haunt most of us…sometimes twenty, thirty or forty years of our lives have flown by and we realize that we hardly recognize ourselves, any longer? That drive we had in our youth, seems to have dimmed over the years.

Such questions, are confusing to most, have been asked and answered over the ages. Discovering the true purpose and meaning of your life is truly simple. No, I’m not kidding!  Continue reading

What is the Symphony of Contentment ~ Positive Prompt

What is the Symphony of Contentment“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury;
and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable;
and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly,
talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds,
to babes and sages, with open heart;
to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely,
await occasion, hurry never; in a word,
to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common.
This is to be my symphony.” 

~William Ellery Channing

We each have our ways of living and surviving on this planet. No one comes with a handbook on life and knows exactly how to do things when in a sticky situation. So, we do the best we can. Sometimes we are not happy with the outcome, there in comes discontent and unhappiness. But, there are some core gifts we are each given right from birth which we forget to use on a daily basis.

The Late Bloomer Revolution by Michelle DeSpain“It takes a lot of hutzpah to live out our dreams when those monumental party poopers — society and inner critics — tell us that “it’s too late”, “you’ve missed the boat,” or “you’re too old.” Hush!

Clarity, Love, Butterflies, Freedom and Splashing Colors for 2016

Clarity, Love, Butterflies, Freedom and Splashing Colors for 2016

“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you” ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

As the year comes to an end and a new year ushers itself on us soon, we will all be thinking about the year ahead. In lieu of what we went through in this year, we think the next year will either be similar. Instantly flashes of what went wrong in this year will leave their residue in the year to come, IF you Let them. The smart and positive thing to do is to leave this year to its original colors and SPLASH the coming year with colors of clarity, love, happiness, freedom and of course butterflies.

Book – A Short Path to Change: 30 Ways to Transform Your Life

“Change is possible and does not have to be difficult.” ~ Jenny Mannion

I’m an advocate for Positive change. Always have been. I know its never easy to change our negative ways, but we can DO it if we are committed to our inner peace and happiness.

Change always seems daunting to the human mind. We are creatures of comfortable habit and refuse to change our ways simply because we think its difficult. But Jenny’s book kicks all those difficult ways to change out the window and gives you simple, clear, wise and doable ways to create positive change within you. Jenny’s journey is inspiring and learning from her life’s work has been a blessing for me. I recommend this book to everyone who really really wants to create positive change within themselves and add happiness to their life. A must read!

And do I have a treat for you- Below is an interview with the gorgeous and very inspiring Jenny Mannion about her amazing book. Enjoy darlings! Continue reading
