Giving Thanks

The Thanksgiving holiday is now upon us here in the United States. Feeling and expressing gratitude on the last Thursday of November is not reserved for those living in the States, and definitely should not be limited to this one day. Gratitude is a state of mind, and a way of being and living that…

I Want You to Know…

I want you to know how extraordinary you are. The mere fact that you are here today is proof that you have purpose--a purpose--that is uniquely yours. You might have already discovered it, or maybe you are still looking, but in either event know that it is there waiting to be opened like a gift.…

Dreams Will Prevail

Fear. Anxiety. Apprehension. All very real emotions, yet perhaps the ones that we give in to the easiest.

Over recent years, as I have taken my nose off of the grindstone to witness the beauty of the world around me, the realization that 'there must be more to life' became my foothold. Working at a mainstream job 60, 70 or even 80 hours a week barely gave me the time to breathe, much…
