Today, I am extremely grateful to hear the sounds in the house. My daughter and her friends are running around, screaming, laughing, playing, dancing, singing... I am deeply grateful that my daughter came into my life and that she made it much deeper and richer than it ever was before. I am grateful to see the process of a human being growing up unfold in front of my eyes. I am grateful for what I can offer to her and her friends and for the unconditional love she is offering me.
This is going to be a very exciting day. I will be doing a demonstration on "How to Do an Introductory Training Session" this morning at 10:30am. I know that it will go very well. We have several people that want to learn how to be personal trainers. We definitely need more trainers and this is the perfect way to recruit more. Several people have made comments to me that, the people I train will just take what I teach them and go on and start businessess of their own. My comment has always… Continue
Have you ever woken up, taken a deep breath and feel deep inside that it's going to be a great day? That's how I feel right now. I woke up feeling so grateful and not for any one specific reason. I feel this great sense of joy and love. Such a refreshing feeling for sure! :) Thank you.
I forgive you for giving someone you've known for 5 months what you couldn't give me in all of five years
For not being in love with me anymore
for not reflecting my worth back to me
for not hiding your indifference to me well enough
for not being "him"
for being a drain on my time and mental energy
for not making me a part of your life anymore
for excluding me, which I realize is my deepest emotional fear
for making it so hard for me to trust… Continue

Tonight I would like to talk about my intentions. I have 5 major personal intentions that I am intending every moment of my life. I have several non-personal intentions as well. I am kind of shy about one intention, so I am going to just call him my Husband. I am not married yet, nor have we met (I think), but I know what his name is, and who he is. I want to leave it at that on that topic.
Intention 1: I AM so happy and grateful that I am a successful…Continue
One of the most important steps in our growth process is taking responsibility for the events that occur in our lives. There comes a point in each of our lives where we have to stop blaming the people, places and events of our past. Yes, the events of our past got us "where we are" but they do not have to define "who we are going to be". That is not said to minimize the effects of the past, it is said as a reminder that if we want to move forward, we MUST be forward thinking. The past is… Continue
What's in forever
but a string of moments
blindly stuck together by glue.
The remains of the horse
Deliverer of your knight
in shining armor.
The uncompleted puzzle
of a single color
with a shape bearing
an unpronounceable name
and no straight edges.
Cast off bridle and stirrup
riding headlong towards
the jagged precipice
Suck the marrow
from the moment
to the feast of lust and… Continue

Thank you for the beautiful morning.. the rain made the grass and budding leaves ever so green!!
Thank you for the rare surprise... seeing a blue heron, in flight, on my way to work this morning.. I wondered if the car behind me saw the beauty, too.. so graceful was that heron even though it has such a gangly and awkward body.. it's grace was humbling...
Thank you for the laughter at work today. How different this Friday was from the last Friday. I know last… Continue
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born to Leopold and Anna Maria Pertl Mozart in Getreidegasse 9 in Salzburg, the capital of the sovereign Archbishopric of Salzburg, in what is now Austria, then part of the Holy Roman Empire. His only sibling who survived past birth was his sister Maria Anna (1751-1829), called "Nannerl". Wolfgang was baptized the day after his birth at St. Rupert's Cathedral. The… Continue
I replied to a comment earlier today in regards to why people fail at attracting what they want- So, I thought that I should post it in a BLOG to share with everyone who is interested in reading this lesson.

I think much failure has to do with living from ego instead of spirit. We have been programmed for so long to live from ego, that living from spirit has become something we have to remind ourselves to do… Continue
There are times I feel so glad that I found this community and feel a strong connection to it. But there are times that I really don't understand a lot of the things that others post about. I read it and it's like a foreign language to me.
I finally understand that just wishing something does not bring the things you want in your life. You have to take action for your wishes to unfold before you. But it's difficult when I am faced with so many challenges to make the things I want… Continue

Daily OM: Often, when we’re unhappy, we fall into the habit of thinking that, if only one or two particular things in our life would change, everything would be fine. We might focus on the fact that we need a new car, or a raise, or a change in our living situation. We dwell on this one thing and strategize, or complain, or daydream about what it would be like to have it. Meanwhile, underneath the surface, the real reason for our unhappiness sits unrecognized and unaddressed. And yet, if we are… Continue

If happiness were external, Americans would have it. Americans have many things, but they are not happy. Many people are very nice to others, but they are not nice to themselves. They have a mechanical way of behaving nicely with others, but they do not know how to be happy within themselves. They are creating a great conflict, a split personality, by pretending to express a happiness that is not there. Happiness is not in the external world; it is not attained through objects. People spend… Continue
