Dreams can come true

Dreams can come true

I was born into a once upon a time and a happily ever after world. There was a song in the musical fairy tale Cinderella that claimed: A dream is a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep. In dreams, you will have no heartaches, whatever you wish for you keep. Have faith in your dreams and someday, your rainbow will come shining through. No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream the that you wish will come true. Then you wake up. What?!!!  You mean all I need is faith, and my…

What do you do when you can’t do you?

What do you do when you can't do you?

During my season of recovery, I am unable to a be fully me. And I am uncomfortable that I need so much help. I’m used to being the “helper”.  Nevertheless, without my asking, it’s like all my needs have been anticipated and perfect responses are in place and on time. It’s odd how I am struggling with receiving love from so many; the very thing my soul desires. In the meantime, I am occupied practicing the grace of gratitude. In an effort to fill the time between all the things I need to but can’t do, I am spending time with…

Don’t look too closely.

Don't look too closely.

The famous French philosopher and mathematician René Descartes, also known as the Father of Modern Philosophy, said the words “I think therefore I am.” We have a large body of mental health research that supports the fact that our thoughts are our most powerful force. “When you step out your door to face the world, you are a force to be reckoned with. You are confident, determined, and very much in control in most areas of your life. This is your dominant mask that the world sees, and to others, you can be quite intimidating! You chase your dreams and get…

Being you is the right thing to do.

Being you is the right thing to do.

Sitting in the large stadium enjoying the commencement festivities, I watched graduates exchange enthusiastic handshakes for rolled-up pieces of paper symbolizing the successful end of a season. Apparently graduates brought along their own cheering section with specific instructions on how and what to scream. In the midst of the noise, the echoes in my mind traveled back to my graduation day at Ohio State University. As I walked across the stage, I looked down at my beautiful engagement ring and squeezed the simulated diploma. I just knew that I was walking into that happily ever after I had been waiting…

Are you in need of your immediate inner strength?

Are you in need of your immediate inner strength?

She had disappeared from my life years ago.  I was so happy to hear her voice. She had been a wonderful friend to me in my time of need. Her story unfolded amongst sobs. I listened. She recently became singular as a result of rejection from her significant other. She was unemployed, about to be homeless and estranged from her only daughter. I listened. The few times I asked, “Have you…?” Her response was, “I can’t because…” I realized her pain had her stuck in anger and shame. I was reminded of how proud she was. She was used to…

I can’t shut up. Children are our future.

I can't shut up. Children are our future.

Imagine: “Tears streaming down, her heart is broken. Because her life is hurting, so am I. He wears a frown, his dreams are troubled. And because he stands alone, his dreams will die. So humbly I come to you and say. As I sound aloud the warfare of today Here me I pray.   What about the children? To ignore is so easy, So many innocent children will choose the wrong the way, So what about the children? Remember when we children? Were it not for those who loved us And who cared enough to show us Where would we…

Are you defined by who you were?

Are you defined by who you were?

She lived in a place called shame. It was dark there. She wore clothing made from the cloth of “not enough”. She was paralyzed by the guilt of her past behavior. She could not forgive herself. And she didn’t  know  guilt could positively be used to move her from the darkness into the light. And so she stayed. There are many people in the world that have a problem forgiving themselves for their past mistakes and the enemy of hell tries his best to add condemnation to worsen the feelings that they have. Here is a story I have heard…

Surprise! You received what you needed without asking.

Surprise! You received what you needed without asking.

I have personalized this message just for you; to encourage and empower you.  The actual text and extended version can be found in the footnote.[1] When my soul is filled with grief.  When everything around me is suddenly painted mean or distorted. When I overestimate my maturity, thinking what I understand will get me through the storm, only to discover it won’t. That’s when I used to hide what was true about me. That’s when I used to put on my mask. To feel particularly and uniquely not enough. To get embarrassed by my world not working was an appalling…

Are you following your dreams?

Are you following your dreams?

Ten proven follow-your-dream startup steps. When I was a little girl, I loved the Cinderella Fairy Tale song that said, “A dream is a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep. In dreams you will have no heartaches, whatever you wish for you keep.” Eventually I outgrew fairy tales, but not dreams. I believe dreams are essential to help us find and live our intended purpose-filled lives. Our dreams allow us to imagine new possibilities; they can take us anywhere, allow us to do anything in a land of unlimited opportunities. However following dreams require intentional activity and planning. And…
