Understanding the life of a Butterfly………

In life, opinion, random thought on January 30, 2011 at 8:21 pm

Butterflies are beautiful creatures.  Besides their beauty, they go through 4 stages in their life called metamorphosis.  Metamorphosis means a drastic change  in form: a complete change in appearance.  Every change serves has a purpose.  Our lives can be compared to the life of a butterfly. Through every stage of our life, we experience new things, learn from them, gather knowledge and grow into the person that we ultimately want to be. So whatever stage you are in your life, change is constant and will always be a beautiful thing.


Good bye, So Long, Farewell, Got A Go………….

In life, opinion, random thought on January 12, 2011 at 7:42 pm

I ran across a great source of inspiration from Outwardbound.org  from the O Magazine and I wanted to share:

A Farewell to CAN’T……….

This goodbye does not make me sad. I will not miss you. I have discovered

what it feels like to do the unthinkable.  You have no business here anymore. From now on

difficult will seem doable. I will see the impossible s simply not-yet-conqured. Farewell, Can’t!

You will haunt me never again.  Hello, CAN!

Welcome to my world.

Laughter, laughter, laughter. Did I say Laughter?

In musings, opinion, random thought on January 9, 2011 at 12:30 pm

I have had an opportunity to read  ” Laughter For A Woman’s Soul – Revive Your Spirit with Women of Faith ” by New Life Clinics.  This is a wonderful book and I wanted to share an excerpt from Barbara Johnson:

Human beings thrive on laughter. Since most of us can’t afford vacations in Hawaii, we have to learn to make our own fun!  Humor is the chocolate chips in the ice cream of life.  Since it doesn’t come to your door looking for you, you have to go out and get it yourself.

Resolutions: The “It” List

In life, opinion, random thought on January 1, 2011 at 10:26 am

Here we go again, it is time for the most famous list of  the year:  The New Years Resolutions.   It is the most talked about list that starts off with optimum momentum and then slowly fades away.   In the process of promising what you are going to do, we often forget to insert the phrase, Simply Doing Me.   So for 2011, no more lists, simply just  do you!

A moment of your time………On the Couch

In life, musings, opinion, random thought on December 6, 2010 at 5:30 pm

There are times when you have to sit yourself down and reflect on the various moments in your life.  Yes I am having a couch

moment, which is something that I do quite often.  It is my own little me time that no one or nothing can interrupt.  It’s that time of the year again, the blissful end of an old year and the birth of a new one. When I look back on this year, it has truly been an exciting time.  But this year was really different, I actually learned a lot about myself , friends and accomplished 99.9% of the things that I set out to do.  I am so happy that I can say that.   Everyday that I wake, it an opportunity to step further into my purpose and I am excited about this journey.  I am still a work in progress, and that is definitely ok with me.  As I wrap up this moment on the couch, I hope you take the opportunity to sit on your couch.  Until next time, take care.

To Blog or Not To Blog? That remains the question

In musings, opinion, random thought on November 9, 2010 at 6:52 pm

What is it about blogging that grabs hold of one’s attention?  Is it the general excitement, that exuberant feeling of exercising the freedom of expression?  Or is that feeling of safety that comes from hiding behind the words that so many of us would love to say or just simply can’t? Or is it merely a cry for help or a justification of being more than just a pretty face?  There are a myriad of reasons and there is no wrong answer.  When you step into the shoes of the person behind the words, you may discover something that was always right in front of you but just could not see.   For some, blogging is a waste of time and for others it is another canvass for creativity. Whatever the reason, it is here to stay, no question about it. Happy blogging!

nOtE tO SelF: The meaning of time

In life, musings, opinion, random thought on October 20, 2010 at 4:15 pm


On my way to work today, I saw a sign that said ” Time has a way of showing us what really matters.”  That statement is so true when you think about it.  As young adults, we are so anxious to get out into the world. We tend to become caught up with things and people that only matter at the moment. Trying to be in the in crowd and be like the Jones’.

We only focused on what was just two feet ahead of us instead of looking further down the path.

As time passes, those things and people that we wrapped our ideals around don’t matter to us today. It is truly a testament of where you are today-knowing that you have grown as a person.  Having friends and family- those who genuinely care about you and your well-being are still around. These are the moments that truly matter.

Note to Self: Life is Not alWays goIng to be Cake and Ice Cream………

In life, musings, opinion, random thought on October 3, 2010 at 8:29 pm

Even though life is purely decadent,  is not always going to be cake and ice cream.  There are  going to be moments in which you will  face challenges.  Some of those moments are going to be short-lived while others will seem to push you to the breaking  point. It may be during those moments that you find out who you truly are and acquire the serenity you were always looking for. You are always going to be faced with life’s challenges large and small, but it’s what you do with the extra  ingredients that matters.

Cleaning out Life’s Closet………………

In life, musings, opinion, random thought on August 20, 2010 at 6:05 pm

Porto / FreeDigitalPhotos.netClosets are an integral part of our lives. It is one of the busiest rooms in the house because we are constantly looking for the perfect outfit to wear.  that  Over a period of time, are closets begin to look cluttered as our tastes continue to evolve.  When that happens we do a “spring” cleaning by going through the clothes that we no longer match our taste and lifestyle.  It is an easy task to clean out our closets at home, but what about your life’s closet?   Have you cleaned it  out lately?   Your life closet may continue unhealthy relationships, emotional baggage from your past, or anything that keeps you from moving forward.
