What is true love… do you know? I am asking about true love. Not the love that you are calling love when you meet someone and tell yourself you just cannot live without them. That you call them continually and demand that because they are your true love they should do this for you or they should feel this way because you do.
It is very interesting for me to watch when a bunch of friends get together and spend the whole time together trying to make the others responsibility for their feelings. What does it mean to hang out with the right crowd, if the right crowd makes everyone feel so very wrong?
Why is it so hard for us to admit the truth? Why can we not say, “I can not do that“. A very simple statement, right? Yet, when are are asked to participate in something that we know right away we do not desire to do, why can’t we simply say those words… “I just can not do this for you.”
When I was stuck in thoughts like, “If I could only have it now”, I found my life very frustrating. I was full of anger and was always upset with the people who shared my life with me. It did not matter if it was at work or at home, family or friends. I just felt all around frustration. I would go to the self-help book section and although I was always reading them, they always left me without the key to unlock the mystery of how to be happy with who I was and with those that I had chosen to share my life.
I think that some of the hardest things about changing ones self is when we are challenged by our closest friends and family. It always seems hard when they think we are bluffing and we walk quietly through their bluff and then have circumstances that could change their lives begin to happen.

Well yes it is, unless you had a Guardian or Guardians who taught you otherwise. Most likely the only thing you have been taught was how to try to control each and every scenario in your world.
Have you been told you are bossy and always think you are right all the time? That you can not be trusted? Or is it the other way around… where you give so much of you and there is not one person that gives to you? Either way it is still out of control because: Continue reading
When we wake in the morning, do we smile to ourselves? Are we happy to be here? Can we get up with a true reason to be here? To find a passion that allows us to feel these things should be the only reason we exist. Why, you ask? Well I believe that without our very own will to stand up and smile and be happy just because, why should we stay? Continue reading
When you have those days that you just want to lie down and give up what do you do? What can we do to relieve the stress of children, bills, work, spouses? Of traffic on a crowded highway, when there is no movement at all and the guy behind you thinks beeping his or her horn is going to make the cars move magically in front of you.
Can you and do you take these things in stride? Or do they drive you instantly into wanting to scream and tear your hair out. Continue reading
We are all living in this world and so many things are going on around us… volcanoes, earthquakes, bad weather, friends around us, our families, everything seems to really be taking a major hit. How do we keep ourselves on track? How do we keep our heads above water? What does it mean to find an inner peace that holds us in an embrace that keeps us safe and loved as this goes on around us?
