Many are reconsidering how they want to live their lives due to the pandemic.
We don’t know what is going to happen with the food supply, so I decided to go to North Carolina and volunteer on a sustainable farm to learn more about gardening.
The company I am volunteering for is called Gardens That Matter, and for a short period of time they are offering free classes on how to start your first garden and gardening with kids.
If you are interested in learning more about gardening, go to the Gardens That Matter Website https://www.gardensthatmatter.com/shop/ and use the code GROWJOY at checkout to obtain the free access.
When we create our own garden, we are taking care of Mother Earth. Happy Gardening!
My lesson from Emma today is how important it is to start working with your kids about discrimination at an early age.
There is so much happening right now with discrimination: race, color, creed, black lives matter, religious differences, sexual preference, and these are only scratching the surface.
We have been celebrating Pride month as you can see. I also found an amazing book called Dream Big Little one which is about African American women and what they have contributed.
This kind of influence can go a long way. Talk to your kids and treat them equally because we are all ONE and equal in the eyes of the Universe.
With Emma, I am loving her as much as I can and setting an example for her when she is only 12 months by choosing what I read to her and giving her a rainbow flag.
We have so much influence over children. Mother Teresa said, “The way you help heal the world is that you start with your own family.”
You can change the world by showing...
I am back with you today with my beautiful niece, Emma. She has another lesson for me today. I call it “Planning for tomorrow, but living for today.”
It is important for us to look toward the future, to keep making plans and taking action steps to get us closer to making our dreams a reality, BUT we...
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...
