I have followed Mastin Kipp on the Daily love and I love the inspirational quotes and messages that he sends out daily! I wholeheartedly believe that you have to take the good with bad. Meaning that in your life we all are going to experience some challenges but that is what makes us stronger. Yes I know some of us have had more challenges than we care to count but the darkness does not last forever. If you think back when you are having an issue in your life it seems like it will never get better but then the problem is resolved. You are actually working with the Universe. You have conquered your problem and it leaves the door open for better harmony in your life. Check out Mastin Kipp of the Daily Love his blogs are awesome!

When you start living your life from the inside out, when you take your power back from people, places and things, when you start trusting The Uni-verse – there is one very important thing to keep in mind: chaos happens.

But here’s the thing about chaos – when you’re on The Path, what seems like chaos is many times Grace in Action. You see, we expect this great big vast and intelligent Uni-verse to act according to human reason. But the problem with that is that what we humans actually know about The Uni-verse is so limited, compared to what there is to know, that many times we see chaos, which is just part of a greater and wiser order that we do not understand.

Also, because we don’t know what’s going to happen next in our lives, it is Spiritually incorrect to assume the worst when you perceive chaos happening in your life. The Uni-verse speaks in chaos, change and Grace many times appears to be chaos, and right before revelation is usually some form of ego death.

What does that mean?

It means that for us to understand and come into harmony with greater Truths about ourselves and The Uni-verse, our old perceptions AND fears have to be shed (aka die) for new insight to come. Knowing this cycle can be SO helpful when you are going about the business of manifesting your dreams, creating a loving relationship or simply just signing up for the adventure that should be your life.

When you lean into your faith (both in yourself and in The Uni-verse), you invite chaos (aka a higher order of living) into your life. It is part of our calling on The Path to develop emotional fitness and proper insight to see that when things “seem” to be going “wrong” or “changing”, not to freak out and apply some doomsday meaning to these events of our lives. Instead, we step back, observe and know that in any seeming change, crisis or chaos is both potential risk AND potential opportunity.

It is those of us who have trained our mind to see and trust the bigger picture (knowing that The Uni-verse is FOR us and never against us) that benefit most from change, chaos and crisis. It is Spiritually backwards to ask for an easy life that works out perfectly AND desire faith in yourself and The Uni-verse. Faith counts the MOST when the ish is hitting the fan.

So today, in your life, whether it be financially, romantically, emotionally, spiritually or any only aspect of your life, if there is chaos or change, just decide that The Uni-verse is working on your behalf and choose to assign a constructive and positive meaning to what’s happening in your life. Ask The Uni-verse to reveal the Grace of this moment to you. See the opportunity instead of the fear; decide that you have the power to not only make the best of this situation, but to actually make a better life for yourself BECAUSE of this situation.

For your dreams to come true it’s vital that you learn to be flexible enough to adapt to and make the best of change. In fact, don’t just make the best of change and the unexpected, get EXCITED by it!


Quote for today: Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts. Henri Frederic Amiel


I am the luckiest woman in the world. Well at least in my own little world! I am married to my best friend and I figure it can’t get any better than that. I have known my husband Harry for at least 41 years! I will not say it was love at first sight but it didn’t take long. We have been together and broke up at least four times mainly because we were young and immature. We both say now that if we had got married when we were younger it wouldn’t have worked out. Both of us had a lot of growing up and learning to do. I guess you can say we were destined to be together. Harry and I had earlier relationships but we would always keep in touch. We would each talk about our relationships to one another.

I remember this one time when Harry told me that he had enlisted in the Marines mind you at this particular time we were dating. Well he then went on to say that because he was enlisting he thought it only fair that we should break up. My then future husband (even though he didn’t know he was) said it was better for me because he didn’t want me to feel I was obligated to wait for him. I will say I was a little hurt but I got over it, considering that I really didn’t have a choice. My thought  was and I quote “fine when and if we get back together he will have to make the first move”. The cat and mouse game continued! I can honestly say that I didn’t know I was in the cat and mouse game. I was dating when he came home and the relationship I was in was pretty much a goner. It was pretty interesting because when he came over the other guy knew automatically that my future husband again (even though he didn’t know he was) still had feelings for me. He actually told me that and I told him he was crazy. Mind you this is one of the reasons that I needed to get away from the relationship because he was very insecure! Well I guess this time he had his man radar up and it was really working. Eventually we broke up and this was way before my future husband…. you know the rest right?

We finally got married in 1989. It was the best thing that I have done in my life. It is such a wonderful feeling to give 100% in a marriage or relationship and get 100% back. I know that no matter what happens he will always be there for me through thick and thin. We have definitely had situations in our 22 years of marriage that have been tested. We both know that laughing together, communication, trust, respect, honesty, and always and I mean always having each others best interest at heart will keep us going for another 22 years and more! This is of course the short version maybe someday soon I will get around to giving you all the long version. All of our friends keep telling us that we should really write our love story. Maybe someday we will.

Quote for the day:
” I hope that what motivates you in all your endeavors would be for God’s greater glory. Money, power, and our dreams indeed are instrumental driving forces for us to strive to be the best we can be. Take time to relax as the psalms say, God has showered us with blessing that we rightfully deserve. What’s the use of having so much if you’re so stressed that you have can’t use the money you earn to cure yourself when you’re sick? Stay happy and positive and relax your spirit. Blessed be.  by” James Padilla

Recently, I had a conversation with my manager Miriam Gomberg. Her Daughter was dating this guy for a while and Miriam asked her are they officially in a relationship? The Daughter replied ” I think so, but I am not sure if we are Facebook status worthy.”

On your Facebook page profile there is a metric for your relationship status that includes several options: married, single, in a relationship, engaged, it’s complicated, open relationship, widowed, divorced, civil union, separated, etc. I never really gave it much thought because I am married and my choice for relationship status was easy. After her comment, I thought about it and decided to research what makes up a Facebook status worthy relationship for others.

My Daughter informed me that before stalking someone on Facebook (yeah, I got the same idea from that one), you check to see if the person of interest is taken, and how serious it is.

Facebook Stalking, like regular stalking, allows the stalker to secretly gather information about the person they are interested in; the stalkee if you will. Unlike regular stalking, Facebook Stalking is less likely to have an illegal component and is generally accepted by it’s voyeuristic victims. The argument being, that if you didn’t want others to know about your life, you wouldn’t post it all over the internet.

Person 1: Do you have a crush on Billy?

Person 2: I’m not sure yet, I need to go home and do some Facebook Stalking first.

It is interesting how people react to a change in your Facebook relationship status. My Daughter officially changed hers after we spoke yesterday to “being in a relationship.” I looked at her page (does this make me a fb stalker?) and since she changed it,about 19 hours ago, she has had 14 comments and 11 likes about her status change.

I personally understand that there is no such thing as privacy on Facebook or any other platform, which is why I do my best to present myself in a somewhat professional manner and keep private things, private. Because I am a fairly open book, I really don’t feel the need to hide who I am or what I am about.

My personal branding professor,  made it clear that you never post anything to any social media outlet that you don’t want made public.  You never know who may be Facebook stalking you, including your boss, mom, friends, enemies, ex-boyfriends, and so on…Give me your feed back! What do you think about Facebook status? If you come in to view my page can you please leave a comment as I will do the same when I visit your blog!

Quote for the day:

 Powerful Dreams Inspire Powerful Action. When you can taste, smell, and touch your dreams, you can enroll the world. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I saw something on the web yesterday and the question was how do you speak to ghost? The answer was just like you would speak to any person. Although the person did say just because you speak to them don’t expect for them to speak back to you.

Which leads to my question. Do you believe in ghost? Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost? I can say that in my lifetime I have had two encounters. The first time I was about 6 or 7 years old and there was a woman sitting at the edge of my bed at first

Just looking at me and then she took the covers and covered me up. I told my Mom about it the next day and explained to my Mom exactly what the woman looked liked and she told me it was my Grandmother! I wasn’t afraid for some reason I believe because I was younger. The thing is I never saw my Grandmother because she died before I was born.

The second encounter was when I was 17 years old. It was really creepy then because I was older and it scared the crap out of me. My Sister and I shared a room and my Sister slept closer to the door. Well this man was standing there at the edge of my bed staring at me while I was sleeping. I turned over and saw him standing there watching me. Well I was frozen at first from fear of course and then I jumped up, jumped over my Sister’s bed and ran out in the hallway. My heart is beating extra fast and I go into the kitchen. My baby brother who was around 9 or 10 at the time was having an epileptic seizure on the floor. I ran into my Mom’s room to tell her about my Brother. My Mom jumped up and ran into the kitchen and was able to help him. You see the man who was standing at the foot of my bed I called him my angel. If it wasn’t for him being there In my room my brother would have died. True story! There are things that we don’t understand but it doesn’t mean that they don’t exist. Do you believe in ghost, angels etc? Do you have a story to tell? If so please share!

I wanted to share a little something about myself. I have talked to friends and people in general about their families and some of them don’t realize how lucky they are. I hear some saying how annoying their Mom can be. That  they don’t get along with their Mom. That she is so irritating. Blah, blah, blah! Well that is what I here after a while because my Mom passed away when she was 58 years old. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss her. Now don’t get me wrong when I was younger we butted heads all the time too. I am the oldest and I felt that I was always getting picked on. I say getting picked on because I always had to set the example for my Sisters and Brother. If my Mom said to go left I would go right just for the hell of it. As I grew up and  had children  I could relate to her. It seemed as though when we really started to understand each other and get close she was gone. All of you that still have your Mom and Dad around cherish them every single day. Yes they can be a pain sometimes, but you never know when they are going to leave this earth. Call them as often as you can, spend time with them. I know all of you have your own families and work to contend  with but don’t ever forget how you got here. When you take the time from your busy schedules to reach out to them they will appreciate it more than you know. So my question to you….have you made that call today? Thank you for checking out my site and comments would be very much appreciated!
