I have no control over the passage of time, only how I respond. Jack Canfield says, “You only have control over three things in your life, the thoughts you think, the images you visualize, and the actions you take.”
Today I'm focusing on my thoughts. Where am I letting my thoughts go? More importantly, where am I letting my thoughts take me? Am I controlling my thoughts or are they controlling me? Hmmmmm.
Stop for a moment. Take a deep breath. Hold it then let it go. Take another breath. This time let it ALL out.
Lets take an assessment on where we are at emotionally. .
Do you spend hours of your day feeling stressed? Let it go. Do you spend hours of your day ruminating over what your co-worker, your partner, or that lady in the parking lot said? Let it go. Let it all go. NOW!
Decide to take back the steering wheel of your thoughts by switching one thing today. Decide to make one shift. .
Interrupt worry or rumination by flipping it into gratitude. Yep, you can do this. When you wake up tomorrow, instead of complaining you HAVE to go to work, decide to be THANKFUL. Thankful you have a job that you GET to go to.
Affirm today you will stop the worry and start the gratitude. I will be thankful for all God's blessings in my life, great and small.
Not really a heel at all.
They came out when I was 2 and I've worn them ever since. Being in New Mexico at the moment, I'm digging my turquoise Vans. What kind of shoes do you like?
As we walk through this journey, gaining confidence in the second half of the game called life, the choice of shoes takes on whole new meaning.
Some of us have been told to consider our shoes for health reasons. Do we ditch the high heels to avoid falling, do we strictly wear comfortable, reasonable shoes?
Honestly, I do it all still. Though most days you can find me barefoot, in my Vans or Birks, I like to get dressed up and wear a pair of heels on occasion. It makes me feel confident. Powerful. TALL.

"Little drops of rain whisper of the pain, Tears of loves lost in the days gone by." -Songwriters: Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
I've had that song stuck in my head all day. Crazy how that works. But got me thinking about water. So soft and so powerful. Can be a drop or rain water, can be a tear drop. Did you know Psalms mentions that God collects our tears? So sweet.
If I were a drop of water, what affect would I have?
Linda Smith Koehler says, "I cannot change the world, I can only change myself. When I make change in myself, I create change in the world. I become like a stone, and when I am thrown into a sea of people, those changes in me ripple out through that sea in ever widening circles, so I create peace, I send you love." Rain drops, and tear drops can do the same.
What change will I bring about? Will it be for good or not? .
Affirm today that you will affect the world around you for good. Make that choice, and join me as we become a powerful force, one drop at a time.
Be blessed Ohana 🌺

I remember being up on the bathroom counter the day my dad took this picture of little me. Smile.
Big me and little me. We've become friends now. Somewhere along the way, I had to go back and tell little me it's gonna be okay. It's all okay, I love you. And forgive the things you did, You did what you knew to do at the time. But as Maya Angelou says, now you know better, so now you do better.
Sometimes in the storms of life, you go into survival mode, your vision gets narrow, you don't know the answers but you're trying to survive.
That's what I did. Maybe you did, too. Maybe there are things in your past that haunt you, that you can't forget about.
It's okay. Not a single one of us is perfect. And I love the different 12 step programs that guide you to make amends with people in your past that you've wronged, but what about you? What about YOU?
Have you gone back to little you, teenager you, young adult you and looked her squarely in the eyes and said, "I love you, Iforgive you!" Have you wrapped your arms around little you and hugged her tight and sob as you let it all out, let it all go?
A lot to take in. Schedule some time for you to do so. Block out a half hour, hour, whatever you think, and make peace with your past.
We've been so kind and loving to our kids, partners, and friends. Now is the time to be loving towards ourselves. Now it's our time.
Affirm today that you will be forgiving of your past and make the most of the present.
Lemme know how goes.
