giving up on our dreams

empower WOMEN unite

giving up on our dreamsIs there an age when you “give up”?  Not necessarily give up on living, but give up accomplishing or experiencing certain things in life?

Today I met with an amazing woman who has embraced so many experiences in her life.  She has traveled, has had vast education, a family and a great career.  Frankly, I don’t know how she’s done it and continues to do it.  But at one point in the conversation we were both sharing things we still want to do or have always wanted to do and it was surprising to hear her say that there are things she’s recently realized she’ll never do because they had a specific time frame and that had already passed.

At first I was saddened by this and immediately encouraged her not to think that way.  It’s never too late and besides, she’s still young.  However, she continued to say that…

Is it true that
happiness is only
an occasional pause
between life’s
crisis? That no one
can be happy
all the time?

To answer this, one
must know what happiness
is for them. So often
we think it is the
big dramatic moments
in life, but I’ve
come to see that, for me,
happiness and contentment
partner. What about you?

Helping Others

I’m so glad I started following you. This is such a beautiful poem

Source of Inspiration


I do not know how to
help her. Perhaps I
must accept that I
can not–that not
everyone I reach
out to is ready to
change. How arrogant
of me anyway to think
I know what is best for
another. So I put her in
Your hands, Sir, knowing
she was there anyway.

I send her love and
compassion and let her
live as she chooses
knowing we all return to
our Creator in the end.

Can someone please tell me what is “love”?

What is love to you? Is it a feeling? An action? A fairy tale? How do you know you are in love? Does it hit you? Does it hurt? Does it speak to you? What is this love?

We all have an idea or have felt this sometime or another in our lives. But how do you know it’s real? How do you know it’s the real thing? This is more of a discussion post than it is a blog. Coming from someone my age and my generation who thrives on finding this ” love” I am very interested in getting some feedback from some people who have actually found this feeling or action called “love”

So my fellow bloggers what is love?

Clutter of Our Beliefs

Sharing this inspirational blog:)

Source of Inspiration


Oh, how we cling to the
useless clutter of beliefs,
prejudices, resentments,
ambitions, and ego desires.
Yet, with a mind filled
with wonder and utmost
faith, determined to learn
to love as our Creator does,
you can be free of that which
keeps you bogged down.

Cast away beliefs that
leave you in disharmony,
turn off your television,
stop watching violent films,
reading dull-minding books,
being with those who promote
discord. Do not taint your mind with
stories of violence or conflict.
Rather, seek only that which
elevates your mind, your vibrational
levels. Having achieved these higher
levels, share willingly with
all who are ready to receive. This
path of love and compassion is
truth that comes from the
Divine Creator of All.

Very beautiful.

Bird Song
A light dust hovers round chanting hoe,
Warm earth, strong hand and eye, furrowed
Brow; deep concentration. Evening
Sunlit haze, thrushes’ song brushes past
Engrossed mind, hearts intertwining,
Spirit to spirit, sweetest union.
