To get where you want to go, you have got to take action!
You need to keep your dreams and your end goals in mind and focus on them, but you will not get there unless you take some action! You can’t just think…you need to do!
In University, I focused on Neuroscience, and I got a lot of exposure to rats and surgical gloves! I remember the day that my professor demonstrated a rat perfusion, basically clearing the rats brain with saline and then putting the furry little guy in the rat guillotine and saying “off with his head!”. The brain was then removed and frozen in preparation for slicing. Honestly, I was just in shock watching this…it literally freaked me out!
Oddly enough, I still jumped at the chance to work in a neuroscience lab, which required me to do rat perfusions every day. The first time I performed the operation, it was not the same as watching it, or thinking about it. I was just focused on performing all of the actions properly, and collecting the research data, which would be found within the amazing brain I was preparing. Not as scary as I thought at all!
Thinking and doing are very different. You can scare the pants off yourself with your own thoughts, and your own imagination about how things might go. So, don’t think too much. Assess opportunities logically and then start taking action. Just do it!
You can “prepare” for things to happen, but they will not actually happen unless you “do” things. So take the next step.
Do something that you’ve been scared to do today! It will be less scary than you thought…trust me! Your dreams are calling, and it’s time to start answering. Have a superb week.
This morning I awoke to a familiar song, “Ruby Tuesday” by the Rolling Stones. Here is the small, inspiring quote that caught me this morning.
Lose your dreams and you will lose your mind…
You have got to be able to see where you want to go, otherwise you will feel like you have no direction. Lack of direction results in a lack of motivation, which will keep you exactly where you are right now. If you see your dreams and focus on them all the time, no matter how huge they are, you will be motivated to take action. Take baby steps every day towards your dreams and you will get you there.
Have a beautiful day.
It’s Sunday, a typical day of rest, reflection and worship in a lot of cultures. No matter what your religious background is, today I want to remind you that
“you gotta have faith…oooh you gotta have faith. You just gotta have faith, faith, faith….”
I awoke to this song the other morning on my clock radio. That same day at school while volunteering with my daughter, I was cleaning up after an activity and there was a sticker affixed to the paper tower rack. It simply said “Faith”. I had to take a picture of it!
What is faith? Defined per the Merriam-Webster dictionary, Faith is a”firm belief in something for which there is no proof.”
So today, have faith in the universe and its ability to provide for you. Have faith in your wildest dreams, and faith in your ability to create everything you want and need in your life. Have faith that no matter what, everything is going to be all right. Have faith, even when there is no proof! If you believe in something, you make it real. Namaste.

Do something you’ve been afraid to day…NOW!
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”
“Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow, don’t stop, it’ll soon be here…it will be better than before…yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone! Ooooooooh, don’t you look back” -Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac has always made me think fondly of my parents and our ’70s style brown and orange furniture. I catch myself often singing the above portion of their lyrics and I am inspired by this song.
Letting go of the past and understanding that the past is “gone” will help you live a happier present day life. Don’t look back, look ahead. Focus on your future today. You have the power to create whatever future that you see for yourself. So, dream big and have complete faith that your future will be even more amazing than today. Your future starts tomorrow. Look forward to it. Namaste.
assumed that I must have left it somewhere last winter. I was sad.
Around the same time, I added to my to-do list to do all my filing and reorganize my office space as soon as some time came available. I had been putting off that project for too long, and I was not really looking forward to it, but I knew it had to be done. (unfinished projects are in your subconscious mind and they can stress you out even when you are not consciously thinking about them!)
In order to get our Year End completed for our businesses, our accountant required several items to be sent to her yesterday, so I was forced to re-prioritize my schedule and get the filing and clutter cleansing done. I was rather annoyed that I was being forced to do this task when I had lots of other things I would rather be doing!
In keeping with my clutter rules, I pulled everything out of my desk for assessment. And guess what? I found my favorite black hat! My filing is now complete and my desk area is clutter free and looks beautiful. And my year end is complete. Now that’s what I call a good day.
The Universe works in mysterious ways alright. I simply had to take action to find my hat, and put it out there that I wanted it! Then I wrote down the office task and the Universe assisted me in scheduling this task when it was required. And voila, my hat is returned to my head!
I love and trust the Universe. Namaste.
We all know the popular song, Don’t Worry Be Happy. When my own mother sang this song at a recent karaoke party, it took the song to a whole new level of positive! The essence of this song is the key to ending your anxieties, and finding your balance of happiness. Stop worrying over things you cannot control. Control the things you can to the best of your abilities. And then decide to be happy. Have a joyous Saturday Night everyone. Namaste.
“When the imagination and will power are in conflict, are antagonistic, it is always the imagination which wins, without any exception.”
Your imagination will win any logical argument that you may have with yourself. So, make sure that you use your imagination to get what you want, instead of what you don’t want. Imagine yourself doing the things you want every day. Live from your goals. Think about your dream house, dream car, dream career, dream lover everyday as if you already have those things in your life. Your imagination will make sure that you make the right choices in your life everyday to get those things. You have the power in your own mind to create everything you could ever dream of. So start thinking BIG, and BIGGER! You can have it all. Namaste.
When you use this word, or use the gesture associated with this word, you are acknowledging that truth that we are all one when we live from the heart.
“The Goddess in me acknowledges the God/Goddess within you.”
Have a Blessed and Abundant Weekend!
You do not need to know everything, but there are things you need to know! Start asking more questions, and be sure to ask the right people the right questions. Choose your information sources carefully. If they have done it before, they will be more likely to give you the right information. Namaste!
