For Thanksgiving

Today, my son is home from school and as we talk about preparing for Thanksgiving tomorrow, I was trying to find a way a 4 year old would understanding Thanksgiving. I think it really applies to all of us. There are so many advertisements about Black Friday and get her early on Thursday, that it often overwhelms one. So, today I encourage you to see Thanksgiving through the eyes a child.

The reason for Thanksgiving is to be grateful for all that we have, to see our family and friends and tell them that we love and appreciate them. And allow ourselves to be loved in return.

Thanksgiving

Both, simple and deeply inspiring at the same time.

May you have a truly blessed Thanksgiving, one full of love and gratitude. I’m grateful for your readership and look forward to sharing with you through the coming year.

Love and Light

For All of Life’s Experiences

I wouldn’t change a thing. You know, when you look back at life and all of the things that have happened to you and through you, how do you feel? I am grateful for every opportunity that has been placed in my path. I’ve had challenges, I’ve had good days, I’ve had great days and I’ve had days that sparked a new me. So, if I were to erase any one moment from my past, I wouldn’t be who I am today. And today, I’m someone that I love (finally!).

Mary's Motivation

It’s been said to me that we choose the moments of our life and I think that’s true. When I look back at my whole life, I can see that every experience and moment has provided the opportunity for me to learn, grow, create, feel and become who I was meant to be. I may not know or understand the why at the time things are happening, and that’s ok. I am learning to trust that the things that happen to me are opportunities for me to learn the lessons I was meant to learn and experience what I decided I wanted to experience before I made my physical journey. My experiences have always prepared me to receive more than I thought I would every receive. Now, that’s worth getting up to experience every day!

May you choose to see all of your life experiences in a light of gratitude. For, when you see the good and bad moments in thankfulness, you will appreciate the abundance that surrounds you!

Go in peace, love and light!

For Appreciating the Simplest of Joys

I have been blessed with a beautiful boy who is a little over 3 years of age. Having children and participating in their lives predisposes you to appreciate moments of joy.

A balloon is a simple and inexpensive items that in out household today has become the most interesting and amazing toy enticing giggles, huge smiles and hilarious laughter. Life happens in these moments and I’m so thankful that I have come far enough in my spirituality to see these moments of joy and appreciate them.

Not only watching, but living the humor and joy of bouncing the balloon around the house with my boy shuts off my brain and forces me to live in the moment. And we experience joy, happiness and love by living in the moment.

May you feel moments of love and peace today!

Go in peace, love and light.

For the Flexibility of My Life

So many today live their life according to what their employer says and how that business does. I am so grateful that I am no longer co-creating a business for someone else, but that I am creating for myself. I get to express the rewards of the work that I do. I get to manage my own calendar, be there for my family and still bring in an income.

It isn’t always easy, sometimes I work on the weekends, I work in the evenings and if I don’t invoice, I don’t get paid…but for my situation, the benefits out weigh the challenges.

I think the most rewarding part, is that I can modify and change my business as I discover more about what it is that I want and love to do. As I change, so does my business. As I grow, so does my business. And it’s been in constant revolution as I discover more and more about who I am.

For the opportunity to do what I love, keep flexibility in my life, be there for my family and the freedom to discover who I really am, I am thankful. I continue used grow into who I truly am without being guided by the desires of another. I am grateful for this opportunity to learn, experience and share in my journey with those that I care about most.

Whatever your situation, may you find the love for your work and may it bring you fulfillment and allow you to provide the life that you dream.

Go in love and light!

For Understanding True Love

Happy Valentines Day, well a day late, but I’m still feeling loved from yesterday.

This year our celebration of Valentines Day was less about spending time celebrating our love, and more about understanding that we are on a journey of love and what we were able to celebrate was more about our journey than the actual celebration.

Life happens, you know, day to day situations: sick kids, A/C not working (and where I’m from in Naples, Florida it was humid and warm), water system on the fritz, work deadlines to be met…and barely a moment to hug and kiss each other. But, we giggled and said,I love you, when will the A/C guy be here? I love you, how’s the sick boy feeling? I love you, this water leak is almost fixed. I love you, I’ve got to go finish working for the day. And a kiss on the lips, hug and on to handle the business of the household at hand.

I thought about it a little more and realized that IS true love. Sharing the responsibilities, caring for each other through the ups and downs that make up life. It’s about standing next to each other, supporting each other, stealing kisses when you can, and sharing your life with someone who is there to witness it. To say, you matter, you and I together create a life that neither of us could have alone, but at the same time each of us is required to participate in order for us to create the life we want.

My wish for you is that you come to see what true love really means, and that you get to experience it for yourself. Love is majestic, and when we love ourselves, we can unconditionally love another. And that is the greatest gift we can experience on this earth.

Wishing you love, light and peace!

Just Grateful

Open Your Heart

Gratitude opens your heart, allowing you to feel.

Today I’m just grateful. There is so much in this world to be grateful for and I’m feeling an overwhelming joy at being able to experience love and gratitude at such a heightened sense.

One of the first steps to improving our mindset is to feel grateful for at least one thing. I read Daily Law of Attraction Quotation today from Abraham-Hicks.com and found my own vibrations rise slightly, simply from contemplating the truth in their words...”Things are coming into your experience in response to your vibration. Your vibration is offered because of the thoughts you are thinking. Find good-feeling thoughts and good-feeling manifestations must follow. Make a decision to look for the best-feeling aspects of whatever you must give your attention to, and otherwise look only for good-feeling things to give your attention to-and your life will become one of increasingly good-feeling aspects.”

Focus on the good, find peacefulness and joy in the good and more good will find you.

Go in Love and Light!
