I dedicate this blog to a very dear friend of mine.

We are all frequent flyers when it comes to bouncing around the past, present and future. We do it continuously. Call it lessons learned (past) call it a to-do list (present). Call it goal setting (future).

The challenge is spending our time in the place it will do the most good.  This can be done by prompting action in "THE NOW" .

Master Time Travel: Time travel is something we do frequently and with great ease. How often have we told ourselves to try and visualize the future?

Even when someone is living in the present- living in the now- we still may not be achieving our desired results. Could this be because of excess baggage we drag with us from our past?

We might do well to adapt the guidelines and restrictions placed upon our luggage when we fly (in real time) out of town. The best advice seems to be, the less we bring with us the faster we will pass through the check points and reach our desired destination.

One Bag Only Please.... the future we dream about is like the narrow security checkpoints in the airport terminal. We can pass through them quickly and easily provided we are not carrying anything that will hurt ourselves or others. The bags we carry-on must be limited to one and must be small enough to pass through the "Time Machine"

If we are lugging an enormous trunk full of yesterday's baggage, we are simply not going to fit through the gap. Even if we check this extra luggage, it will only cost additional time and effort at Baggage Claim. Do we really need to bring all this stuff with us?

In reality, we can either jettison our baggage from the past or go nowhere fast. Happy time traveling!

Always Remember to Laugh

This blog is dedicated to those of us who get caught up in the stress and grief of the world and sometimes forget to laugh. It truly is the best medicine. It doesn't mean to walk around like a Cheshire Cat, Clown at the circus (which can be scary by the way) or goofy. A great laugh can go a long way these days. Some days it may seem impossible to find that one thing that can set it off. Everyone has a different sense of humor. To me that makes it even more fun.

I personally am a fan of the ole slip on the banana peel on the floor (of course if you are ok) another favorite is when you have quick wit with a special friend that knows you so well that they get it right away. Yes the wonderful laugh that makes you cry, slap your leg or run in place. Those are the best.

When you feel your life is upside down and you are totally lost it is hard to find something to laugh about. But I encourage you to open up your heart just a little bit wider and let some of the sadness go and make room for a laugh.

After losing my son Ben I never thought that it would be possible to ever feel like I would laugh again or even want to. But I know that he loved a good laugh and would love to hear one from all the people whose heart he touched and continues to touch every day.

Keep moving forward,


Take Your Life Back

This blog is dedicated to all my friends that let fear drive their car instead of taking chances and living. It is time to take your life back. Its time to take your life back from anything that feeds your life negativity within it. Take your life back from the things that do not make you grow or move forward. Take your life back from what broke you. Those cracks are your bones from your past . These are there to move forward from the lessons of life. Do not become a flat line and live in the world of familiarity. Each of us has a past and some fracture our heart, your mind and soul.

Use your heart as a compass . Let it be your guide as  curiosity rather than fear.  Stop silencing your guideline. Listen to it. If you ignore it then you will continue to live small in a big world that is begging you to play big.

Don't cheat the world of your unique contribution that you were put here to give back because you will stay unsatisfied. You stay stagnant.  It is ok to be scared from time to time. But do not let it define you.  Take your life back. You will mend from the scars of your past. Wake up each morning and take control of your life and live true to your heart and what makes you happy. You will be amazed at the energy that will go thru your body as you fill yourself up with love for yourself and others. You only have one life.

Always Move Forward,



Grief and Low Self Esteem

I see many people going through life with low self-esteem or the same emotional roller coaster patterns over and over.

If you live in fear of what other people think, of them rejecting you, or you possibly rejecting them by not meeting all of their needs – You will never be happy. It is you who will suffer.

You because you are not being who you are. You because you are not leading from your core. You because you are trying to be everything to everyone instead of everything to yourself.

Ultimately the only person who will never leave you and who you will always have to answer to is yourself. No one else in your life is forever. No matter what you want to believe.

DO what makes you happy. SPEAK what is your message. LIVE what is your truth. LOVE because it is who you are. And attract those people who are meant to be there.

Surround yourself with people in your life that love you for being YOU.
