Happy New Year!




It is that time of year again….
Making that New Year’s resolution list that we never keep.
We start with a burst of enthusiasm and then slowly, like champagne in a glass, the bubbles begin to fizzle out over time…
Well, I’m not making any New Year resolutions this year, in fact I’m letting go – of old beliefs that keep me imprisoned,
I’m shedding the weight of responsibilities I have carried that I need not carry,
I’m releasing the hold of people in my life who only bring me down,
I no longer look to them for approval, I have my own.
I’m getting rid of clutter both physically and mentally,
making room for what the universe has for me and not what I think I need.
I’m surrendering instead of fighting, kicking and screaming,
I choose to dance with life instead.
I’m relinquishing those fears that hold me back from reaching my true potential.
Those cloying relationships that cause me to feel as though I am being smothered and can’t breathe that I have allowed just to feel loved.
I am embracing my aloneness, my uniqueness, my soul, instead of critiquing and berating myself. Or even others who so gladly will do it for you.
Instead of making a new New Year’s Resolution list, I am choosing to let go of all the old to make room for the abundance and miracles that awaits me in and during 2018…

The essence of any religion…



“The essence of any religion is good heart.
Sometimes I call love and compassion a universal religion.”

~ Dalai Lama

. . . trust in an unfolding we can’t design or ordain.




“An ordinary favor we do for someone or any compassionate reaching out
may seem to be going nowhere at first, but may be planting a seed we can’t see right now. Sometimes we need to just do the best we can
and then trust in an unfolding we can’t design or ordain.”

~ Sharon Salzberg

We think it is the other person.




“We all have somebody in our lives who has the uncanny ability
to push our buttons. We think it is the other person.
Surprise, surprise! The problem doesn’t lie in the other person, it lies in us! No one can push our buttons unless the buttons are connected.
Detach whatever fear, guilt, shame, or anger we have attached to the issue
and people will be unable to push us.”

~ Iyanla Vanzant

Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough.


“Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough.
Not only have I found that when I talk
to the little flower or to the little peanut
they will give up their secrets,
but I have found that when
I silently commune with people
they give up their secrets also –
if you love them enough.”

~~George Washington Carver

You have to break barriers to grow.


Sometimes the best solution is the most painful option.
You have to break barriers to grow…
If people don’t like the transformed you and decide to walk away,
don’t stop them,
they were never meant to be in your circle.

Heartprints of kindness and genuine concern —



Whatever our hands touch
we leave fingerprints —
on walls, on furniture, on doorknobs and dishes;
there’s no escape, as we touch we leave our identity.

Wherever I go today
help me leave Heartprints —
heartprints of compassion,
of understanding and love.

Heartprints of kindness and genuine concern —
may my heart touch a lonely neighbour
or a runaway daughter, or an anxious mother
or perhaps an aged grandfather.

Send me out today to leave Heartprints —
and if someone should say “I felt your touch,”
may they also sense the love
that is deep within my heart.
