It reminds me to celebrate and enjoy the process as well as making adjustments to keep me on track to achieving my goals. Here are some rapid-fire questions for […]

Full of thanks

It’s such a beautiful time of year here in the States. While in one hemisphere the heat is turning up, the one I am in the leaves are falling and winter coats are coming out. A few weeks ago I celebrated my third Thanksgiving. It’s so beautiful to take a day to celebrate and be […]

Comparison is a thief!

Comparison robs us of Confidence. As we grow in confidence we will find that we will start to compare ourselves less. We all know that comparison is one of those diseases that we ‘should’ rid from our life. We hear that comparison will steal our joy! Comparison is like identity theft. It robs you of who you are. […]

Confidence

The confident person in the room is the one who practices self-love. They’re not comparing themselves, their resume, life experience, outfit or body to others in the room. They don’t wonder if their presence in the room is welcome or enough. A person who is truly confident stays present, connected in conversation, they aren’t looking […]

Surrender

Have you noticed that most of life is held in tension? What works for one person doesn’t work for another. To experience a full life we are not to strive and act desperate, yet we are to work hard. Without vision and reaching for goals we flounder yet somewhere along the way life has taught us, “don’t […]

Highs and Lows

I was out at a party in Hollywood and was hitting it off with an entertainment industry professional, I’ll call them ‘X’. Before I knew it we were exchanging details and ‘X’ was offering BIG introductions to some of the top 5 people I dream to have dinner with, well maybe 4 because I was […]

Trust

Before I came back to California to attend my second year of school I was looking for a sign to point me in the right direction. On the very day I asked for a sign an envelope was found in the bottom of a bag. On the front it said, “Seed money for Bethel.” I […]

A dream is a wish your heart makes

A few years back I walked into an inner healing counseling session, sat down and said, “I feel like I have no vision and the dreams I once dreamed are lifeless. I don’t have that connection I once had with them.” The counselor said, “The reason you are finding it hard to have vision is […]

  • Love my people 😍 📷 @christine.l.sullivan
  • Have you ever said "I've told you a million times, why don't you listen?" Even with the best intentions sometimes our words of wisdom don't seem to resonate with the person... have you ever wondered why?⠀
⠀
I'm a verbal processor but being verbal doesn't mean I am automatically a great communicator, it just means I talk a lot. When we speak often our agenda is to be understood and heard, but in the midst of that we forget to make the other person feel heard and understood. ⠀
⠀
Maybe if we shifted the goal from agreement (right and wrong) to connection we would be able to find our way back to each other. I know if someone doesn't hear me, I need to learn to change the way I communicate. Staying in a place of "No one listens to me" keeps me in a place of helplessness. Approaching people from a place of curiosity rather than judgement will change the game in the way you communicate!
  • Happy Birthday to this blonde babe of a woman!!!!!!! Love and miss you so much! Take us back to sailing the whitsundays and discovering abandoned resorts! @thewritersink 💜💗✨
  • "So why would I fear the future? For I am being pursued only by your goodness and unfailing love" #psalms 
Often our minds are rehearsing tragedy, meditating on lack, and forgetting the good. What if we shifted our focus? And got caught up in a cycle of goodness instead of lack?

If fear has to do with punishment am I walking on egg shells anticipating something bad happening? Am I believing that I am worth being punished? Or do I believe that I am being pursued by love? 
It's time to get caught up in a cycle of love and goodness rather than a cycle of rejection and punishment.
