Welcome to the Inspirational Daze

I find it interesting that the more that I talk about my dealings with Anxiety the more people seem to also have much of the same.

How did we get here? 
How did we get to a place where we have completely lost sight of just how very special TODAY actually is?

Contained here are some tips that I have worked on to simplify my life and my mind...maybe they can help you too.  In this blog, I will write a daily inspirational thought and elaborate on them.  It would be a great service to pass along to friends and family to remind us all what life really is all about...and it's not about the sadness, shame, fear, or anything else that doesn't make you feel wonderful.

Determine what SUCCESS means to YOU.  It may not have anything to do with material things.  What is it that you would be doing RIGHT NOW that would make you feel successful at life if you were doing it?

Is it being healthy? And again, what does that entail to you? 

Is it being positive? Describe it. Is it being available?

Whatever it is that would make you feel not only satisfied with the way you are living your life TODAY...but what is it that you need to get motivated on to feel like you are leading a successful day? Who are you and what do you want to be?

And most importantly to all of these questions....


Don't let anything stop you from becoming your best self. Not nay-sayers, not low self esteemers, not friends, lovers or family. Do NOT let anything, or anyone stop you from moving forward into the person you inspire yourself to be. Stop finding excuses NOT TO live the way that you deserve to live. The only one who truly has power over you is you...

SO...what is stopping you now?

Figure out right now, today, who you are-who you intend to be-and what you are truly willing to do to become that.

And then, let's talk tomorrow.

In love and Service,
