words and thoughts from my journey

Reflect On How Far You’ve Come

It’s easy to get caught up looking only at the end goal and not the progress. We need to remember that sometimes the journey is what really matters.

Some nights I lay in bed and think of all the things I want out of life, all the dreams and goals I have yet to master, and all the lessons I still must learn. As I continue to think, I start to remind myself how far I’ve come, how much I’ve grown and evolved. It gives me confidence and it gives me courage to not ever give up. I look at old posts and I remember how I used to be and how different I am today. I am still the same plant but one that has bloomed into a beautiful being. How through focus and practice I have been able to retrain my mind. How I’ve survived trials, sadness, and pain to grow into a strong, inspired woman. I’ve changed my doubts and fears into beliefs and success, I’ve let go of anger to cleanse my soul, I’ve risen every time I’ve fallen to become my own super hero. Many things still lay ahead of me yet but I am not where I used to be and that puts me so much closer to who I want to be, to who I will be.

The journey is what holds the moments that are so special and dear to us and the moments we will never forget.

I am not at the top of the mountain yet but I’m much further than I used to be.


The next time you are feeling less than what you aspire to be, flashback and remind yourself of how far you’ve come. Look down and see how high you’ve climbed.


Awaken To Your Calling

6 Things Only The Highly Creative Will Understand – article share

An article share from my collection of readings…


sketch from my sketchbook…express yourself, find your creativity and you will find yourself. We all hold strength and power within ourselves.

Let it be what it is…you will find peace there.

” A secret to happiness is letting every situation be what it is, instead of what you think it should be”… This is one of the many quotes that hang on my wall. A secret to life is to believe that every thing has a purpose. Good times bring us joy and bring us up, rough times give us lessons that make us stronger. I believe we all are made for a higher purpose of some kind. Our experiences in our lives will help us become what and who we are meant to be if you are open to the lessons and the growth that they bring with them. Believe that though you may not be in control of what is occurring around you, that you can control your self, and believe that what is is supposed to be.

Monday Thought on Love

Love doesn’t come from things or words,  it comes from the heart and soul.

Power to Choose…


I have the power to choose.

I have the power to choose to have positive people in my life.

I have the power to choose to be happy.

I have the power to choose my battles.

I have the power to choose to share love, joy, and hope.

I have the power to choose to be free.

I have the power.

#Motivation Monday – Favorite Quotes

Today was a busy busy day, I apologize for the late night post…today was a day of catch up and surprisingly I still have energy left…this is what happens when you do things you love!!! Today is #motivationmonday – I love days like this! Motivation and Inspiration are key factors to keeping us going. I have several motivators – success, praise, accomplishment, the desire to help and inspire people, set an example for my son that dreams can come true, the desire to live life and be happy…there are just so many reasons to live life and work towards your dreams and goals. I promise I still have down days and sometimes it’s tough but I remind myself that I can always change my outlook and make things better, I continue to work towards training my mind to stay positive.
