Soulful Sunday: All I want for Christmas is Peace

Posted by


The year is almost done. I’m tired of planning and pushing and performing. I am ready to go with the flow. I am open to what comes.


My heart and my gut know what’s right for me. So trust is what I am going to do. Will you?


And I know that to have all I want, I need to give thanks for all I have.


And to fulfill my purpose, I need to spend more time in my sweet spot.


And I have no doubt that what will be will be. I am not in control so I might as well sit back and enjoy the ride.


And speak less so I can truly hear my calling.


So I can find calm in the midst of life no matter how busy things get.


And can have the resilience to ignore the mind and only hear the soul.


I can hear it most when I am at rest. Surrounded by the people and the pets and the things that I love.


And that rest starts today.


Happy December Y’all. All I want for Christmas is peace…on Earth and in life. I know my peace begins with me. Wishing you inner peace this holiday season.

A Beautiful Table and A Grateful Heart

Posted by


It’s here again. My favorite holiday. One of my favorite days of the year–Thanksgiving. And as I prepare to spend the day with my family and enjoy a delicious meal at a beautifully designed table, counting my many blessings and giving thanks, I find myself a bit more introspective that normal.


Life has been going at a break-neck speed. And I have a lot to share with you about my personal and business journeys that I just can’t seem to get out of my head and onto this blog. But as with all my life successes and challenges, I promise to share these with you when I am able. I have NO doubt there are some major lessons from which we can all learn.


But for today, one more day, I am going to keep my focus on the things that are most important to me including making memories with those I love while we have the chance.

So Happy Thanksgiving friends. My mind may be full of deep thoughts, but my heart is FULL of gratitude and one of the things I am most grateful for is you.

Wishing you a safe and happy day full of laughter and love! Oh and turkey too.
