Today, in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, I’m going to take a few minutes to wallow in pure, unadulterated appreciation. Today’s blog is my version of Oprah’s gratitude journal. If you follow Abraham-Hicks, you know that being in a state of gratitude is one of the quickest ways to get into the Vortex (aligning yourself with Source energy –…

As you know, my blog (and my life’s purpose) is about operating from a place of Love rather than Fear. I try not to get caught up in the downward spiral of current events unless I can offer an educated opinion without succumbing to fear-based rhetoric. That being said, I feel compelled to write about the latest shooting that…

“A shoe factory sends two marketing scouts to a region of Africa to study the prospects for expanding business. One sends back a telegram saying: ‘SITUATION HOPELESS STOP NO ONE WEARS SHOES.’ The other writes back triumphantly, ‘GLORIOUS BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY STOP THEY HAVE NO SHOES’” (excerpted from The Art of Possibility by Zander & Zander).

In fact, many folks believe “the powers that be” are intentionally trying to create a Civil War in the US. Divide and conquer. Just today, I was reading a Facebook post about this possibility, when something jumped out…

Remember the old saying, “What gets measured, gets done”? There are plenty of examples of this in education. For instance, teachers may not focus on writing out their lesson plans…

DIVERSITY – Why are we so afraid of this word? Why does this one little word cause so much anger and opposition? Why are we uncomfortable even discussing diversity? It will probably come as no surprise….human beings find comfort in sameness. We thrive on commonalities. In fact, where romantic relationships are concerned, studies have shown that the old adage…
