Will You?

What is your purpose? Do you know?

How do you find it if you don’t?

What is the purpose of life? Is there one?

I’m not convinced that there is a right answer to these questions, but I do believe there are answers that are right for me. I have spent the past several years seeking these answers and each day they become a little more clear.

I am meant to turn my mess into my message. I am here to share my story, my struggles, my triumphs and above all, the one thing that has carried me through it all: God’s love.

My journey has been long, confusing at times, and difficult – and it’s nowhere near over. But these challenges have also been extremely rewarding! My quest for holistic healing has not only strengthened my faith and improved my health and well-being, it’s also lead me to my career as a Women’s Wellness & Empowerment Coach. What began as an ambitious project has become my life and I’m sharing it with you in hopes of inspiring you to take action in your own life.

Wherever you are in your own journey, whatever your struggles, I encourage you to keep going. You’ve made it through every bad day you’ve ever had before…
You’ve got this!

But here’s the catch: the only person with the power to make things better is you.
If you are unhappy with your life, change it.
If you want something, go after it!
If you don’t want something, rid yourself of it.

Greet each day with open arms and an open mind. Love yourself and take care of others. Be kind, thoughtful and helpful. Do something every day that scares you a little bit and watch how much you grow!

Yes, you can. Will you?

 

 

Morning Musing

I know that I need to write more, but I’ve ignored the urge so much that when I sit down to finally do it, my mind goes blank. And then I allow myself to become distracted until I don’t have time to do any actual writing. Needless to say, the books I have floating around in my head are still unwritten. In fact, there’s quite a bit floating around up there in my dreams that I plan to get to… some day. (More than I care to admit, actually.)

But what about TODAY?

Most days, I’ll convince myself that I can’t. That I don’t have enough time, money, experience, clout… I’ll find ways to keep busy and justify my lack of progress. I’ll say I can do it tomorrow, that it’s not important enough for today, that something else needs my attention more – the kids, the house, the finances… you know, real life. Or I’ll once again fall victim to my triggers and lose hours out of my day as I process.

But the truth is, until I make writing a priority – it won’t be. Until I decide to stop letting those negative voices and excuses impede my success, they won’t. Until I accept that my needs are real, my dreams are important, and my desires are okay, I’ll never fully heal and enjoy my life.

So TODAY, I am going to do life different! Today I am going to tell myself that I CAN and I WILL. Today I am going to make time, earn money, gain experience, give attention. I’m going to allow myself to let go of my perfectionism and enjoy my day. Today, I am going to write.

Welcome to my Morning Musings! 

Somebody Has To

Somebody has to go polish the stars,

They’re looking a little bit dull.

Somebody has to go polish the stars,

For the eagles and starlings and gulls

Have all been complaining they’re tarnished and worn,

They say they want new ones we cannot afford.

So please get your rags

And your polishing jars,

Somebody has to go polish the stars.
