It states, "Intention is defined as a directed thought to perform a determined action. Thoughts targeted to an end can affect inanimate objects… Continue reading The Power of Intention
To me, beauty is so much more than what we see. It's heart, spirit, nature, health, integrity, honor, love, kindness... Beauty goes below the surface and into the soul. We must take care of our physical body. We only have one, so when we treat it poorly, it tends to FIGHT BACK. As we focus… Continue reading What is BEAUTY?
Oh how hard it is to stay positive sometimes. It can be so easy to get down in the dumps. But let me tell you, it's not worth it! Choose to have a choice! Choose to be happy!
Especially in today's age of social media, our mistakes can spread like wildfire. Even innocent mistakes can be blown out of proportion and a bombardment of judgement begins.

As much I love autumn, and it is my favorite season, I have to ask myself, would I love it the same… Continue reading Why Choices Matter…

We've all heard the phrases "MIND OVER MATTER" and "WILL POWER" and sometimes think we simply don't have any. But let me tell you right now, YES YOU DO! We all have the agency to be what we can be and should be. We all have the ability to chose and make choices of what… Continue reading Are You Empowered?
As parents, we have rules and guidelines for our children to follow. We teach them things that will help them live their lives happier and safer. We teach our children how to stay safe with strangers. We (hopefully) pay attention to their online activities and friends. We know who their friends are and try… Continue reading Keeping the Commandments of God
I'm sure we've all had days where we just want to sit down and cry. And some of may have even done it. No matter how many good days you have, no matter how often you look on the bright side of things, or see the silver lining, you are going to have bad moments.… Continue reading Emotional Health: Calming Stress
