“Talent alone won't make you a success. Neither will being in the right place at the right time, unless you are ready. The most important question is: 'Are you ready?'”
~ Johnny Carson
Have you ever noticed that some things come into your life in the absolute perfect timing? Have you ever noticed that some things come into your life in what seems like the worst possible timing? Why is that?
Sometimes, everything lines up for us. We meet the right person at a time when we can work with them to make something happen. We are presented with an opportunity at exactly the time when our schedule opens up. Something that we have wanted to buy comes available exactly when we find the resources to buy it. We love when these things happen, and we rejoice in them.
These are the things we have focused our attention on, and the Universe is happy to deliver them to us – and the timing is always perfect.
But there are times when things just seem to go wrong. Continue reading
“Don't let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don't let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others' prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.”
~ Roy T. Bennett
No, this is not a rhetorical question. I do understand that “Who do you think you are?” is a question that is usually asked in annoyance, but I am truly asking you, because it is important for you to consider this question – and to answer it.
If you have read any of my posts, or any of the pages on this website, then you will know that I believe that we are not just physical. I believe that we come to these physical bodies, on this physical plane, to experience the world and expand the Universe through our experiences, our thoughts, our feelings, our dreams, and our desires. I believe that we are the creators of our own realities, and, through our shared realities, we are the co-creators of the Universe. Continue reading
"I am realistic – I expect miracles.”
~ Wayne W. Dyer
Have you ever been very excited about a dream or a goal and shared it with others – a friend or family member? Have you enthusiastically told them that you plan to accomplish you desire no matter what it takes? Have you ever felt a huge letdown when, with no malicious intent, your friends or family tell you, “Be realistic?” It hurts.
There are a few ways that we can react or respond to this unexpected let down in our quest for the support of others. We can believe what they are trying to tell us – basically that the dream or goal is impossible, or at least so difficult that it isn’t worth pursuing – and thus we give up on it. We can stop sharing our dream and pursue it quietly on our own (a very difficult route to go.) Continue reading
It's time, once again, for a Twitter roundup. Today let's take a look at what others are saying about #possibilities.
I believe that we live in a Universe where the possibilities are unlimited. Even if we trust that we are limited to the possibilities that we can currently imagine, we have so much room for expansion...I find this world very exciting, and I certainly hope you do as well.
So let's take a look at what others are saying about...

"Nothing in the universe can stop you from letting go and starting over."
~ Guy Finley
What are the things that have happened in your life that bother you? What are the things from your past that drive you nuts? What are the things you wish you could change? What are the things that you wish you had never done?
We all have these types of things in our lives. We all need these things so that we can learn, grow, and expand our lives. It is a part of living, but, most of us let these things bother us and continue to be in our awareness. Continue reading
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step."
~ Lao Tzu
Are you actively pursuing your biggest dreams? Are you constantly moving in the direction of your most cherished desires? If you are, keep going. If you’re not, what are you waiting for?
When we take a long view of our big dreams, or our desired life, we tend to get scared. We see it as something big, so big that there is no way to believe that we will ever get there. It is daunting, and so, we tend to put it off until…well, until we feel we can get control over it. Continue reading
Today I thought I would post a few of my favorite sources of inspiration. I find inspiration everywhere, so today I would like to share a few of my favorite Inspirational videos.
These videos are available to You Tube, but I felt it would be easier for you to have them curated in one place: Continue reading
“To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive.”
~ Robert Louis Stevenson
What do you prefer in your life? Where do those preferences come from? Is there any control that you have over your personal preferences?
These are all very good questions, and many of us have asked them of ourselves. Many of us have also not received any answers. Although, in the big scheme of things, it may not really matter if we have control over our preferences, it would be nice to know how they come about.
I believe that our preferences are determined by us, in general, before we come to this world. Continue reading
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
~ Howard Thurman
Like you, I have many dreams and goals. I have many desires. Like you, I often feel like I am making no progress toward my desires. Like you, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by everything I want to do. Like you, I find myself giving up on some of my dreams and goals because I see no progress.
I am obviously making some assumptions about you. I am assuming that you are similar to me when it comes to dreams, goals, and desires. I know that assumptions are dangerous, but in talking to many people, I have come to discover that I am not unique in the way I approach my desires. I am not unique in the way I feel about my dreams.
What may be unique about me is the way that I pursue my dreams…at least some of my pursuit may not be the norm. Continue reading
“If not me, who? If not now, when?”
~ Attributed to many different people
Perhaps you have heard the Chinese Proverb, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” This is exactly on point with what is on my mind today.
We all have things in our lives that we wish we would have done, or at least started, before, but, we are unable to change the past. That means that no matter how much we wish, it isn’t going to happen. However, that does not stop us from starting now…as a matter of fact, it should be something that encourages us to start now.
