Dream Fearlessly

Would you give up one Saturday to dream fearlessly? I’m taking inspiration from a project of the American Family Insurance company. The company partners with local charities across the United States of America on a project to support and/or better that community. You can learn more about there project here. Don’t worry. This isn’t an ad for an insurance company. I’m not affiliated with them nor am I promoting them. I love the concept, though. Give up one Saturday to Dream Fearlessly. What could I do? What could you do? At first, I thought, I’m living my dream. I’m writing full-time. I don’t need to dream fearlessly. Did you think that, too? Or did you think, give up a Saturday? A whole Saturday? Just for a dream? Whoa to both those negative thoughts. What does Dream Fearlessly mean? In my opinion, it means step into your dream. Act as if it is real. Act as if you are the person who is going to make it. Even if your belief is a little shaky. Even if you have not the first clue how to make it happen. Recently someone challenged me to examine one of my dreams. It was a dream […]

Don’t Wait for the Storm to Pass

We all have challenges in life whether it is just getting through a bad day or getting through months of illness or a lifetime of grief. Don’t wait for the storm to pass. Our mission is to learn to dance in the rain. But dance in the rain doesn’t necessarily mean to literally dance. In KM Huber’s blog, Aim for Even, she talks about how we humans try to stay in one moment even though that is impossible to do. Her dance in the rain is to be present. Marie Forleo gives advice on how to Find the Courage to Keep Going When You Feel Like Giving Up in this short video. How can you learn to dance in the rain? Find that one thing you love and give yourself a few minutes just connecting to that thing you love. For me, if I spend a few minutes writing each day I’ve just danced in the rain. Another way I dance is to listen to beautiful music from one of my favorite groups, like Pentatonix. So if your life is a storm that takes your breath away, take a moment for yourself. If you’ve used that moment reading this blog I […]

The Wormhole of Wrecked Resolutions

Hello! I’m back! *Crickets* Well, I can’t blame you. I’ve been gone a long time. Where was I? I was lost in a wormhole. According to space.com, a wormhole is a theoretic passage through time and space that could create shortcuts across the universe. This wormhole was first proposed by Albert Einstein and Nathan Rosen in the theory of relativity. They thought of it as a bridge. Well, let me tell you, wormholes can have mighty long bridges. Life handed me a one-way ticket through a wormhole about two years ago. Scientists speculate that it takes negative energy to keep a wormhole open. Check.  I’ve had my share of negative energy ranging from having to say goodbye to beloved pets to hated-but-required tasks of the day job, to housework (oh, the waste of time!), and the nightmare and heartache of a loved one’s life-limiting illness. My resolutions, my goals, slid out of sight as I trudged one foot in front of the other, trying to make it through to the other side of the wormhole. Yet, in the quantum foam that formed my wormhole there existed moments of awesomeness. I attended a life-changing Master Immersion Class with Margie Lawson and […]
