Whenever I complain
I disrespect
life itself
When I forget the blessing
of each and every breath
then I lose sight
of what it is
to be here

Until I stop
giving attention to my
(and/or the world’s) plight
to instead put my energy
and focus on all that is right
then I will perpetually be
on spin cycle

When I have expectations
of others and of things
so far out of my control
then I will continually
be disappointed

If I compare myself
to “them”
and see them
as “they”
instead of
then I create
from all that
I am
we are

I am
We are

We are

Life is a teachable moment


Two Events – Two Roles

Every day we create the universe before our eyes that is as we choose it to be.

Today, for me, I was introduced to two gentleman with very similar circumstances but they both were playing very different roles.

What if everyone is playing a role?  Not merely playing the role of parent, caregiver, lover, friend, employee, or employer, or whatever societal role yours may be, but what about everyone playing other roles as well?

The first gentleman, we will call him Jacob, was in his early 20s and for anyone who think that generation has somehow lost a step I am absolutely loving this new energy I keep manifesting for myself.   This young man is very indicative of others  his age I have met recently.
Jacob had such amazing energy. He was so vibrant, excited and completely in joy when I picked him up for a ride.   As soon as he got in the car, I could feel his energy.

I asked Jacob where he was going, and he responded by saying he had only a few minutes earlier woke up to his friend asking him if he could change the tire on his van that had been left on I-95.  There was no resistance but instead, Jacob was excited about the opportunity to help him, because in part, he had known since he was 4 years old.

Jacob had such high vibration, and not only could I feel his energy, b20171223_123601_001ut I could see he was playing the role of hero.  Jacob was his friend’s hero, and he stepped fully into this role.

After dropping him off, and a little while later, I was manifested the second gentleman.   I had parked my car, and was getting ready to walk towards the grocery story when he called out asking if I could jump his car.   I had a feeling I was not the first person he asked.

He was not only much older than Jacob, but he was quite a bit older than myself.  We will call him Ethan, and he had on a gold necklace, a bright yellow button down dress shirt that he wore out over his dress pants.

I could feel Ethan’s energy was kind, much like Jacob’s, although Ethan was nervous.

The hood of the car was already up, the jumper cables already attached, and the first thing Ethan told me was that he had to push his car even though he recently had surgery.  He then pulled up his pant leg to reveal the long scar.

Ironically, when I was pulling in I thought I saw him pushing the car and had planned on parking and then getting out to help him push, but he had already finished.

I could feel Ethan needed to share about having surgery, because his role he was playing was of the victim.

It is said that a hero needs a villain, but that is reserved for comic books and super heroes, because in reality the villain needs the hero, and the hero needs the villain.  They both play off one another.

Another irony is both ended their time with me in much the same way.   Both gave me a man hug, said they were incredibly grateful, and were gone as quickly as they arrived.

The victim was not bad, nor the hero good.  Both were merely playing a role.superhero-296963_960_720

At other times, if we would have met at a different place or time, the roles may be reversed.

We have all played the role of victim.  We have all played the role of hero.   And, we consistently play many different roles.  Those roles play off each other, as people come in and out of our lives, even like Ethan and Jacob, their time with me is but for only a few moments.

Seeing people as playing a role helps me to see them as more human and allows me to see them as even more human, as I recognize in myself the many times I have played the role of a victim.  I have seen the many times I have played the role of a hero, too.

In fact, these two gentleman that I manifested today are a gentle reminder of not only when I have been the victim and the hero, but what other roles I am playing each and every day.

I Can(t)

Just because I may have had a bad day
Doesn’t mean that I can’t make someone else’s day.

Just because I may be having a problem
Or problems even
Doesn’t mean that I can’t help someone else with theirs.

Just because I may be struggling
Physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, or…..
Maybe even all of them at the same time
Doesn’t mean that I can’t forget someone else’s struggles.

Just because I may be thriving
Physically, mentally, financially, or
Maybe even all of them at the same time
With everything in complete flow
Doesn’t mean that I can forget someone else’s struggles.


It is, whatever, it is

Whatever your religious faith
whatever your political view

whatever the color of your face
whatever the country of your origin
whatever your sexual orientation
what your economic situation
whatever your personal feelings
whatever the world may say,
It’s ok.

Whatever they may be, I can have my way, and you can have your way. It is our differences that make us unique, that propel us forward, that foster new ideas. There are many paths that lead to the same destination, which we all are striving for –

Happiness / Love / Joy / Success / Peace / Fulfillment / Satisfaction

Whatever they may be, as long as we can mutually find kindness and compassion in our hearts, as long as we can be nice to one another, as long as we respect our differences and each other’s opinions, then we are good.


I am In Love
With myself
And the world
Around me

Beyond the veil
Of good and bad
Of mistakes and failures
Of loss and gain
Of rich and poor
Of beautiful and ugly
Of masculine and feminine
Of strong and weak

To the most beautiful
Unconditional authentic self
And the world around me
In Love I am

I am in Love
With the Moment
And all the opportunities
Enveloping me

Beyond the veil
Of what was or could be
Of hurt or anger
Of lack or insecurity
Of guilt or resentment
Of doubt or uncertainty
Of tomorrow or yesterday
Of limitations or expectations

To the most beautiful
Unconditional authentic self
And the world around me
In Love I am



As a culture, we fail
when we let fear; hate and/or violence
become social norm.
As a society, we fail
when we shun “them” instead
of embracing them.
As a community, we fail
when even one member dies
feeling unloved.
