Today is my Birthday!

In the past – I’ve always wanted to have a celebration and a ‘special‘ day for myself. Over the years the need for that has diminished because I finally get it – Every day should be a Celebration! Every day is a day to recognize – not only how special I am – but how special is the ‘I AM’.

I AM Love
I AM Good
I AM God

I AM One with Spirit and One with EveryONE and EveryThing! And, so Today I celebrate all of YOU!!!

My Family
My Friends
My Community
My Pets (Lilly just had 6 amazing kittens)
My Home

My Life and Birthday(s) would not be meaningful without them!




I was so excited about letting everyone know about my new business – that I forgot to add that the website isn’t up yet. I’ll repost when we’re live!

In the meantime – ponder this:

“You give little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” – Kahlil Gibran

The quality I’ve been focusing on this past year is ‘Joyful Service’. It’s been truly transformational to step up and ‘be of service’ to my Graduate School, in my kids classroom, to my Spiritual Center, to my family.

How are you being of service? Leave your comments – love to hear how people give back.

It’s hard to believe it’s been over a year since I posted something here! Either I’ve been really busy or really lazy! Truth be told I was finishing up my Masters program at the University of Santa Monica and then busy launching my new business, Heart-Centered Programs.

Starting next week I’ll be back fulltime posting on a weekly basis (to start)!

Until then – be well, be kind, be loving and most of all – Be Happy!

So often we think we need to discover something, or look for something – out there.

But what we’re really looking to discover is — in here — in our hearts.

There’s no need to travel the world over to discover ourselves. All we need do is look inside our hearts and find the all the answers we seek!!!
