This is a place for us to connect in word and spirit. I will be honored to hear your comments as we pursue together the joy and creativity of realizing that we are created uniquely with love.

Sooner than you thought: Life is happening right now!

You know sometimes we just forget that life is right now. We keep waiting for something to happen “soon”. Well the soonest something can happen is NOW! And guess what you are in charge of it!

I write this as I just finished a conversation with my daughter who is awaiting her first child any day now. Well, there is something you do have to wait for, but what about those other wishes and dreams? While the completion may be far in the future, what if you don’t take the first step today? Maybe you are having a hard time breaking it down into smaller components because you are caught up in the fearful feeling of “it’s never going to happen”.

Calmness on your journey to success is crucial for it to become a success. I have found it helpful to really use my planner and even invested in one that is specially designed for this process called a Planner Pad (I don’t think the company will mind my promoting them!) But you may have other ways to design this process.

The most important thing is to plan and then do at least one thing everyday that moves you closer to your goal. Then when you are done, you get to cross it off the list! I LOVE doing that! Until next time…Joy and Blessings to you!
