Reminders

Since I have been to the page last I have worked long 16 hour prep days, celebrated my birthday and have shot a two day commercial for Reebok.  In the passing of time my puppy has grown taller, the rain has come and gone and I find myself looking forward to what tomorrow holds.


In the past week I have come to realize that when I don't write I miss it.  It has become a friend to me. A confidante. A place to call home.  The one constant in my life that has never betrayed me, or left my side, or didn't embrace me when I was crying.  For me the words come and the world fades aways and purity finds me willingly. 


Tonight I honor the words that have seen me through my darkest hours, lifted me out hopelessness and encouraged me to become the woman that I am today.


Words are powerful and can invoke change, love, laughter, and integrity. Words can change a persons life forever. 


They come from many sources.  A billboard that left me laughing, a poem that left me breathless, a Daily OM that made me sigh, or an email from the Universe that was exactly what I needed to hear.  From the many books that became my mentors or an affirmation that I carry in my pocket. No matter where they came from, or how I heard them, it still stands that... thoughts become things...


Be as good as your word, dream big, make a wish, live each day as if it were your last, treat your body as your temple, do unto other as you would have done unto you, your most vital commitment is your commitment to yourself, and the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful then the risk it took to blossom, All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind, Being is the great explainer, don't go to sleep angry, when you find what you love follow it with all your heart, acknowledge your personal growth, the world will give you what you ask of it, so ask wisely, don't sweat the small stuff, everything I ever needed to know I learned in kindergarten, home is where the heart is, choose love, you don't lack a single thing, be beautiful, live up to your true potential, a house with no curtains has nothing to hide, be compassionate, experience empathy, listen more than you speak, love is confession so today come out with our truth, it only takes one second in time, one friend, one leap of faith, to change everything forever, if you leap the net will appear, just surrender, just be, expect the unexpected, accepting full responsibility for every little thing in your life, is what opens the floodgates to joy and power,choose happiness...


Today give a compliment to a stranger, a friend, and yourself... come on... spread the word.

  1. I came up with a self-affirmation after reading some of your stuff... Thanks for inspiring me to write it:
    I shall never fear the unknown, for that which is yet to be discovered can be either good or bad, but will always be an experience. The known is already good or bad, so I must nurture the known with the unknown, or else the comfort of familiar good and bad is destined to become the unbreakable shackles of the “given”. Stagnation is an abhorrent ward to the magnificent, and the true enemy of happiness.
