Where You're Supposed To Be


Faith in this intangible emotion,
thing you cannot describe with words….
Believing in yourself -
the vision and desire your heart speaks of
is the voice that should guide you.
Believe in this feeling and know,
it will lead you exactly 
where you're supposed to be.

It's All Needed


It's a new day and a new opportunity to help others.
And skills can be so diverse,
some are meant to be hands on,
some are meant to donate goods,
some have monetary ability,
some are meant to lead,
some are meant to follow….
Regardless of where you fall,
it all matters and it's all needed.
Being compassionate and helping
isn't defined to a specific action.
Keep you heart in the right place,
lend a hand however you can...
we are all people,
and we all could use a more love in this world.

Don't Be Scared


Today, look at the beauty around you.
Appreciate the small things
that seem to get lost in our busy days.
Take a moment to be grateful,
realize how lucky you are to be here…
Live the amazing life in your heart externally….
don't be scared.

Love Is At My Core


Negative people and thoughts,
will always be there…
but it can't effect me
if I don't give into the energy.
The clearer I am with myself
the more synchronicities occur.
It's not random or coincidental,
there is a plan...
my job is to see the signs,
be grateful to it all
and inspire others along the way.

Find the Joy


In our most difficult moments,
believe it or not, clarity lives.
Step out of the challenge 
and recognize the miracle
in all that is you.
From the simplicity of waking up,
to walking, talking, smiling…
it's all a gift.
Life is precious and it's up to us
to find the joy.

Anything is Possible


Anything is possible
as long as you believe.
Open your mind,
open your heart,
let go of trivial noise...
realize most of it is noise.
The answers are within,
don't be scared to listen…
anything is possible,
when you believe.

Come Back to It


Words sometimes get in the way…
your mind can play all day with thoughts
and turn them inside out.
When this happens,
be aware of the voice in your heart…
when your mind begins to be so loud,
this gentile voice can get lost.
Don't worry, it's always there…
just choose to come back to it.


Tuesday, October 2, 2012

Look Ahead


It's another day...
it's time for a brighter perspective.
Life has it's challenges and disappointments
but I have to believe,
the good out weighs the bad.
Through the struggles
we gain compassion, understanding and wisdom….
and through the darkest hours we gain courage.
Courage to go on, 
courage to let go,
courage to forgive.
It's time to look ahead,
and embrace every second I'm here.

Missed By So Many


I'm having a hard time,
finding my words, feeling my breath…
I'm almost numb.
It's easy to get busy and do other things,
but the memory of you taps my shoulder
and gets my undivided attention.
I can't believe this is real…
I can't believe you are gone…
There was such a gentile, special side to you…
you had a quality people admired - 
you inspired by just being you.
I hope that's what people remember,
I hope your family knows how much you were loved,
I hope you feel the love from us you left behind.
I pray for you, 
it's beyond sad that you are gone...
you will be missed by so many.

~ RIP Earl ~

My feelings are everywhere right now…
I'm sad, angry, 
I smile when I think of our happier times,
I break down and cry to know you're no longer here.
They say everything happens for a reason,
but this makes no sense...
there is no reason - not in this case.
I'm sorry you were alone, and I'm sorry your felt the grips of despair…
I'm mostly sorry I haven't seen you in years.
I will always love you, and will remember our better days...
you were one of the kindest, sweetest people I ever knew,
and that's how I'll keep your memory alive.

RIP Earl Badu

Gratitude and Attitude


Gratitude and attitude,
changes everything.
It takes more energy
to be angry and unpleasant…
and when you think about it,
what do you gain?
You can choose your outcome,
you can choose peace.

Own It


Just do it…
as Nike famously said.
There is no time for fears,
doubt should only exist,
to give you a clearer picture
of what to do next.
Today is your day…
own it.


Monday, September 24, 2012

Attitude


Today is determined by my attitude…
Rather than looking at all I'm not,
I will appreciate all that I am.
I will be grateful for another day,
to breathe air in my lungs…
I will be grateful for the opportunity
to tell those I love, how much I love them…
I will be grateful for waking up.
My attitude is everything,
so I will choose to make it it's best.

Tear


There are moments 
tears seem like the only solution
to whatever it is your are feeling.
Nothing is wrong with a tear…
A tear is full of emotion,
it knows better than you at times…
A tear sometimes needs to happen
in order for you to be honest with yourself.
Embrace this moment,
and look deep at what's going on.
You have the ability to understand yourself…
you have the ability to find joy.

Trajectory of the Day


Your day can change instantly,
and that change can occur in your mind.
Yesterday, I woke up 
and didn't have the most inspiring thoughts.
But then I talked to a friend
who encouraged me and 
while in conversation, a woman walked by
and gave me a compliment.
The effect of my friends words
and a strangers compliment
changed the trajectory of the day….
today, I will do the same for someone else.

Don't


There are some days
you want to throw in the towel….
don't.
It's only a moment that will pass.
It's okay not to feel your best all the time,
and quite normal.
It's unrealistic to expect to be on a constant high -
part of the journey when character forms
is when you're going though challenging times.

Intention


Set an intention.
It will bring purpose and focus in your life.
Staying committed to your intention
will make you disciplined 
and will help you find your center in the middle of chaos.
Life has many challenges, twists and turns…
being centered helps with all the distractions
and your intention will keep you on track.


Monday, September 17, 2012

Love


Love is a beautiful emotion…
it can lift your spirits,
change the course of life,
it can bring you joy like nothing else.
Love is special and sacred…
Love can bless all relationships in your life.
If you feel love,
share your love today with words.
Tell those you love, that you love them,
and why you love them…
Hearing words of love
can change someone's day.


Friday, September 14, 2012

You Will


Stay committed to what you want…
Have a plan stay focused and flexible.
Your are more likely to achieve this vision
if you know what it is…
And stay flexible because you might not get there
how you expected,
but be sure you will get there.

Only You

Forgive yourself,
for whatever blocks your progress.
Life is a journey with ups and downs
and sometimes the downs
can cause deep scars.
This is the flow of life…
we all go through it
but only you can determine your growth…
only you can let go and move on.

Up to Me

I'm not feeling healthy...
I can workout.
I'd like to make more money...
I can work harder.
I want to experience more of life...
I can be more open.
All opportunities are there,
it's up to me to make them happen.

9/11

Life is precious, a gift, an opportunity
to express love to its fullest potential.
Eleven years ago today,
love was not expressed to any potential.
Today, as we remember 
the lives lost in such a senseless act...
show love to a stranger,
pray for the lives touched by this anniversary,
and continue to pray for a better tomorrow.

Today


Today is a gift.
Remember... 
there will never be another today.
Today,
Let go of doubt…
Laugh instead of cry…
Live as if it's your last day…
Love because it's the only way.

Subconsciously


"You can't judge a book by it's cover"
We've heard this saying for years
yet how easy is it to still judge?
Subconsciously, we sometimes judge
based on past experiences, 
stereotypes,  language, body language…
many other variables too.
Try to tap into the subconscious,
catch the thought as it arises
and do not let it to formalize.
We don't know the stories of strangers,
but we can be sure they do have them.

Move On


It's easy to let life run you over.
Disappointment happens,
sometimes to the point of exhaustion.
At times we see the worst behavior in people…
Remember, life doesn't have to be that way.
What goes on with others should not be judged,
but can be used as a monitor as to check yourself.
And disappointment…it's bound to happen.
There are lessons in the experience,
learn, grow, be tolerant, forgive and move on.


Wednesday, September 5, 2012

Thoughts


Can thoughts be controlled?
When thoughts arise
and the voice is negative,
catch the thought and don't let it develop.
This is only happening in the mind…
one can control the manifestation of thought.
Therefore, be purposeful in thought,
be compassionate, understanding…
be wise.

Excuses



Excuse are easy to make.
I don't have enough time,
I don't have enough money,
I don't have enough skill…
These simple words
have heavy consequences 
if you believe them.
Be kind to yourself,
give your self opportunities to improve…
things don't happen over night
so be patient.
The key is to not give up.

In Time / Con Tiempo


Are the voices you hear real?
Is the story making sense?
How are you reacting?
The mind can play astounding tricks...
Flush out the clutter,
let the real voice within grow.
Trust this voice,
believe in yourself despite doubt...
in time, you will find peace


¿Las voces que escuchas son reales?
¿La historia tiene lógica?
¿Como estas reaccionando?
La mente puede jugarnos juegos extraordinarios…
Limpia el desorden,
deja la voz interior crecer.
Confía en esa voz,
cree en ti mismo a pesar de las dudas…
con tiempo, encontrarás la paz.

Can You Hear It / Lo Puedes Escucha


Words aren't spoken
yet everything is understood.
In a smile, a touch, a gesture
millions of words find a voice...
The message is clear,
but can you hear it?

Las palabras no se hablan
pero todo se entiende.
Una sonrisa, un tocar, un gesto
millones de palabras encuentran la voz...
El mensaje es claro
¿pero lo puedes escuchar?



Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Stronger and Brighter


I don't think you hear enough,
how special you are.
Your heart is pure,
your intentions are good…
you exude goodness from your soul.
Life hands us all obstacles,
and these obstacle are meant to test us...
here, we form character.
Watching you from a distance,
I see your dedication and your resiliency.
It can't be easy but you're doing it.
Any tears that fall are tears of growth…
This will all be a memory one day,
but your spirit will be stronger and brighter.

Light of Love


Life is truly a gift.
While there are difficulties,
try not to fall in the pits
of unhappiness.
The temptations to fall
will always be around - 
but you can choose
on how to feel and act.
Find peace…
stay in the light of love.

Never Forget


At times life can feel complicated.
Step back and put it all in perspective.
For all the lows, there are highs...
It's the cycle of life...
Stay true to who you are and
never stop loving,
though you feel like you should.
Never stop smiling,
when a frown is whispering in your ear…
And never forget,
you're exactly where you're supposed to be.

It's Up To Us


Looking at an ocean
makes you realize how small you are.
It helps to put life in perspective.
How big are the problems in your mind?
Are you able to control levels of angst?
Why do you feel angst?
Step back and start small.
Dissect your issue and analyze,
are you really experiencing an issue?
Can you transform it to an opportunity
to learn and grow?
Solutions are always around,
it's up to us to see it.


Tuesday, May 29, 2012

All That You Are


I can't see You
but I feel You.
You are present
when I am not.
You embrace me
when all I feel is cold.
You speak when I swear 
all I hear is silence 
Why am I so lucky?
Am I the only lucky one?
No...
Your love is profound
and endless.
You mystify 
leaving me to glorify
all that You are.

Course of Your Life


Lessons come 
in all forms and mediums.
Embrace them.
They are meant for you.
Open your mind
as you learn the lesson…
the core of what you're learning,
can change the course of your life.


Wednesday, May 23, 2012

You


It's rewarding to not give up.
Life is a roller coaster,
with many highs and lows.
The lows can feel like 
you've lost your breath….
but remember, you haven't.
You are here,
you can choose,
you can change...
you are the master of your destiny.




Friday, May 18, 2012

Endless


There are endless possibilities.
There are endless opportunities.
There is endless love.
It's a matter of how you choose to think.


Wednesday, May 16, 2012

You Are Trying


Failure is part of the process.
Don't expect everything to run smoothly
while achieving your goal.
Through failure you learn,
you grow, you have more ideas…
And not just any idea,
rather a more concise focused one.
Failure isn't a reason to throw in the towel,
on the contrary,
it's proof you are trying.

Can and Will Change


There are days,
that it all feels grey.
But it doesn't have to be.
Your mind is very powerful.
Perspective is conceived 
by your conscious and unconscious mind.
Take the time to see the unconscious.
Change what you don't like.
It takes time,
but it can and will change.


Friday, May 11, 2012

Feel Grateful


Beauty is all around…
open your eyes to see it.
Take a moment today,
to really breathe.
How lucky are you 
to be here today…
how lucky are you 
to know what love is.
Relish in the moment,
and feel grateful.
