End the drama

End the drama

Who would you be without the drama? What would your life look like? It really is a matter of choice.

Your life would change if you chose a different way to respond and behave in situations. If someone irritates you, instead of reacting and becoming irritated you really do have the choice to walk away. It really can be as simple as that.

If you aren’t happy with the way things are going, ask yourself – how can I approach this differently? And then try a few of the possibilities.

Sometimes we act without thinking because that is the way we have always done things. If we are bored and complaining, choose to go outside and do something simple like hoola hooping 🙂 or even lay out a blanket and look at the sky! Simple actions with huge results!

Consider this if you worry all of the time, what would happen if you stopped worrying and started trusting?

Consider this quote:

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” ~ Albert Einstein

Exercise your power to choose, play with different scenarios that you aren’t happy with in your life, try to create distance from the situation and your emotional response and ask yourself – “Is there another way to approach this scenario? And then do it.

Take little steps or big ones, whatever feels right to you, just try something – you are a powerful person! Try something different and things will change!

Enjoy! With love,

Kelly

“The Prosperity Prayer”

“The Prosperity Prayer”

Good Morning!! I believe that there are messages all around us and we can receive them if we maintain an open heart and mind. This inspirational piece passed my desk this morning as I dreamed about my future and all that is yet to come. I wanted to forward it along to you.

Here is the Prosperity Prayer as circulated on the internet…

Dear God —

I surrender my financial affairs and concerns about money to your Divine care and love.

I ask that you remove my worries, anxieties and fears about money, and replace them with faith.

I know and trust that my debts will be paid and money will flow into my life.

I have only to look to nature to see proof of the abundance you provide.

I release all negative thoughts about money, and know that prosperity is my true state.

I commit to being grateful for all that I now have in my life.

I learn to manage my finances wisely, seeking help where needed.

And finally, I ask you to help me understand my purpose in life and to act on that purpose with courage and strength. I know that prosperity will come, in part, by doing work I love. Please help me use my skills and knowledge to be of service in the world.

Thank you, God.

Wishing you peace and love today, Enjoy!

Kelly

This is what I live for! A real life dream come true!

This is what I live for! A real life dream come true!

I had to share this story with you!
Last night I was at a meeting and sat across the room from a kind, smiling man with nice eyes. When it was his turn to introduce himself, he shared that he is a retired accountant and banker and is going in a new direction. He shared shyly that his passion is writing and singing. He didn’t share much else but later on, we connected and wow what a story!

30 years prior, this man spent a lot of time writing. He loved to write song lyrics but didn’t know how to take this dream further, so he shelved them – literally. He spent a lot of time beating himself up for not following his dream. For years, he kept wishing that he could be a song writer and singer but he needed to be responsible and work.

Time went by and now in his retirement, he pulled those lyrics off the shelf and studied them. He began to write again. An advertisement found its way to him from a company that creates music from your own written lyrics! So taking it as a sign, he sent off his lyrics and soon thereafter his music came back!

By chance (which we all know is really divine timing), he was invited to be in a local choir and now every Monday he sings!

And guess what, they were looking for new music – so this kind, smiling man brought in his music and in October, his work will be performed in front of an audience!! A dream come true!

I hope that you enjoyed this as much as I did, my heart is soaring! Let’s take our dreams seriously, treat them as the special gifts that they are given especially to us and embrace our lives now and follow our hearts today!!

Lots of love,

Revive Your Dreams!

Revive Your Dreams!

Do you have a dream that keeps resurfacing yet you ignore it or immediately dismiss it?

Why do you push it away? Do you think it is too grand?

Do you shy away from it because of what other people might think about you and what they may say, “Who does she think she is?”

Recently someone complained about their job to me. I asked, What do you really want to do? After a bunch of “I don’t knows”, he shared that he wanted to open up an artsy downtown cafe/restaurant. He smiled when he said it and radiated pure and sweet energy – it was beautiful!

A similar scenario played out recently when I was having a massage. We were speaking about my work as a coach and she shared her concerns about the limited time that massage therapists can practice and didn’t know what to do afterward. I probed a little and a little more and again after a bunch of “I don’t knows”, she told me that she wanted to travel and audit world class spas for magazines and private spa product companies! She nearly sang the words as she told me about her dream! Again, it was so beautiful!

We all have dreams!

Listen for your “I don’t knows” and then dig a little deeper. Listen to your heart, find the image and then sit with your dream for a little while, imagining that you have it all right now and feel the excitement bubble inside of you 🙂 I am getting goose bumps just writing this!

Then ~ Believe it is possible!

How can you believe that the “unbelievable” is possible? By having Faith!

“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and a belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.” ~ Gail Devers

Faith overcomes fear and doubt ~ how do we develop and then maintain our faith? Stay tuned for more next week…

Enjoy the day & Embrace Your Life!

Make it a Summer of Self-Discovery!

Make it a Summer of Self-Discovery!


I can’t believe it is the beginning of June! Summer is just around the corner and I bet your weekends are filling up quickly! Likely with weddings, barbeques and reunions…

Have you booked in any time for yourself?

Remember back to January when we were all creating our New Year’s Resolutions, do you remember what yours were? Pull out your list or mentally check off what you have completed.

The summer is a great time to review our goals, reflect on our past experiences and plan for the future. Work tends to be a little slower and we have more time outside to be inspired by nature and rest in the moment. Things are a little sweeter.

“At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” ~ Lao Tzu

This quote is so true, we just need to listen and make the commitment to ourselves to slow down and choose to do what makes us happy.

Activity: Grab a pen and paper and plan the perfect date for yourself.

Where would you love to be taken? How would you like to feel? Would you love to be given flowers or a special gift? Would you like to sit in a garden or visit a museum or an amusment park?

Are there places that you haven’t visited in a long time that used to bring you joy? Like the library, theatre, a local cafe, restuarant or a neighbouring town?

Whatever you imagined for yourself, carve out a time in your schedule and go! If you can, go alone!

I personally like going on these excursions with my journal 🙂 The time “away” feels like an adventure, even if I am just down the street taking myself out to lunch. I meet interesting people and I feel such a special appreciation and connection to myself. It is fun! Try it and share with me your experiences! 🙂

Enjoy the day & Embrace Your Life!
