I was given another opportunity to get a lesson from Emma today. She is teaching me how to SLOW DOWN and enjoy every moment. I get so busy with my work that I forget to take a breather sometimes. It is easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of life and miss the most beautiful moments.
So today, Emma and I are swinging in the hammock. We are on the floor playing with toys, and having a great time!
It is so important for us to slow down and enjoy our days because we never know which will be our last.
The question I would like to pose to you today is: What can you do to slow down and be in the moment?
We only have this moment. I want to encourage you to make the most of it.
I had so much fun making the video last week with my beautiful niece, Emma. I have decided to do a four part series on what Emma is teaching me.
Today I want to go back to one of my favorite sayings, “How important is it?”
For me, it was not that important to do my hair or get dressed up for this video because I could spend more time with her. It was also not important today for me to get my house perfectly clean because I would rather spend more time with her. I only get her for a few short weeks and I want to make the most of that time.
So what I would like to bring to you today is to think about “What is most important to you?” and to consider placing that as your priority. (As you can see in the video, Emma agrees.)
Take a few minutes to meditate on what you would like your priorities to be for the day, the week, and this year. We can put what is most important first and everything else will fall beautifully into place.
So many of us are falling into victim mode. We are complaining and focusing on what we are not able to do. We are only focusing on the terrible experiences in our life and not keeping our eye out for how we can serve.
I get it. As a sign language interpreter, I have not worked since March 9th because of shelter in place. I also have not been able to present as a life coach.
BUT I have been given the opportunity to watch my niece Emma. She is beautiful, and she is perfect. Because she lives so far away, I would not have the time to bond and spend time with her. But because of this tragic pandemic, I get to fill my days with this beautiful, baby girl.
I know we are having a hard time with COVID-19, and yes, everything is different, but we could look at our situation from another perspective.
Instead of being in the victim mode, we could step back and ask, “What is there for me to do?”
For you, it might be to make a phone call or wearing a mask. Only...
I want to talk to you about a tough subject…fear.
We often experience this in our lives through worry and anxiety.
The good news is fear is simply on the border of what we currently know. It doesn’t mean we can’t. It only means we haven’t taken that next step.
Fear is feedback letting us know we are on a new green growing edge and are stepping out of our comfort zone.
COURAGE is moving ahead in spite of our fear. So today I want you to wrap your arms around fear and say THANK YOU because it means you are growing into so much more.
You are getting out of your comfort zone and doing something new. Instead of going into fear, go into gratitude and say THANK YOU.
You are taking that courageous step to create a life you love.
Question for the day: Where can I move ahead in spite of my fear?
You’ve got this!

With every change in life, we have to build again from those hard impacts that come at us. A divorce, a loss of a job, a serious illness or maybe something like COVID-19 is what rocks our world. It is the Universe’s kick in the butt to get us back to reality and decide what is most important to us.
What is most important to you?
Is it more time with your family, so you can go to your kid’s activities. Maybe it’s bringing in more financial abundance, so you can FINALLY go on that vacation you have promised yourself.
When you are breathing your last breath, I do not want you to look back with any regrets.
Today, get in alignment with your values and what is most important to you.
So your question of the day is, “What is more important to you?”
Have an amazing day!

Question of the day: How do we know who to trust?
You turn on the TV and one station says these people are right and you turn the channel and tell us another group is right. There are different ideas and variances, so who do you decide who to follow?
You have been given something amazing and that is called your INTUITION. You can tap into that to get the answers from within yourself. Don’t just blindly follow others. Don’t only look at Facebook. Instead do some research on the topic and then get quiet.
Get still and really feel how your body is reacting and listen to what your mind is telling you because you have the answers. We don’t want to get the answers outside of ourselves. We want to go inward and dig deep to hear what our own mind is telling us.
So today if you are confused with the media and don’t know who to trust, take some deep breathes, sit down and do a little meditation and ask yourself “WHAT FEELS RIGHT TO ME?”
Good Morning! This week I am continuing to respond to questions people have asked me to talk about what they are dealing with during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Many individuals are being down on themselves because they feel like they are not doing enough. They feel like they are not staying up to the standards that they had been living pre-corona virus.
I want to say that is cruel and unloving to yourself. We are in a different time. We are going through a different experience, so love yourself. Maybe it’s time to sit back and enjoy your time.
I got a wonderful meme today that says…"You will get to know yourself during the hardest times, but you probably won’t recognize it until hindsight" - Stacy Martin
I love that because it made me think about when I went through one of my worst breakups. Even though I had worked hard MY ENTIRE LIFE (looking back I was probably a work-aholic) for a year, I just sat.
I still got up and did what I needed to do to...

Like you, I’ve had to adapt to the challenges of coping and dealing with a new routine since Covid-19 turned the world upside down. It has been a confusing and stressful time for all of us.
But recently, many of you have reached out to me with private messages asking for more guidance and inspiration as a way to navigate through the day to day challenges that the coronavirus has presented.
I found a great solution!
I’ve wanted to create something for daily inspiration for a LONG time, but other priorities kept pushing it to the backburner. But with all the messages and requests that keep coming in, now feels like the perfect time.
With this in mind, I am creating a program called “Daily Inspirations.”
The goal of the program is to provide daily videos to help you:
We often live in a state of lack and scarcity. The most predominant area would be finances or thinking there is not enough money. There are other feelings of lack such as:
Relationships and thinking, “I don’t have enough love in my life.”
Health: “I am not feeling good and I can’t overcome this disease.”
I want you to change your mindset that we live in an all abundant Universe.
It doesn’t matter what sense of lack we are feeling, there are several things we can do to overcome these feelings.
1.Bless everything you have. Walk around your house and go into gratitude for every single thing you have in your home. Say, “Thank you for the beautiful pictures on the wall that are visually pleasing to me. Thank you for the hot running water. Thank you for my microwave. Thank you for my washer and dryer so I do not have to wash my clothes by hand.” I give thanks for my books because there are those in third world countries...
