We fall, we rise…
we sleep, we wake…
for every action
there is it's opposite…
that's how it works - 
it can't be fully planned or protected.
And though it can't be planned,
life can be fascinating when we do.
Do, to achieve goals,
do, to be better than yesterday,
do, to live life to the fullest.
Life is unpredictable…
Do everything possible
to live the life you want.

You Are an Angel

Life can feel unkind.
Losing a loved one is unbearable.
Tears want to fall like a river flows…
I have to, I will shed some tears…
but not of sadness.
I cry because I am grateful
to have shared life with you.
You are an example of truth, grace, class,
everything a woman should be.
Your warm smile, your loving meals…
putting me in my place as a child -
it all stemmed from love.
I love you very much
and will remember your smile,
laughter, actions and words forever.
You are an angel.

Greater Good

Believe in yourself.
If you don't, why should others?
Anything is possible…
see your goal in your mind,
connect to your purest intentions…
choose to do something selfless.
Good breads from good, 
and your optimism will effect others -
your small intention
may be part of a greater good.

Through Hardships

I love light, I seek truth,
staying positive is at my core.
But I can't ignore the darks days,
the mishaps, the pain.
As difficult as some of those moments were,
I wouldn't change them for the world.
After each situation,
I had the opportunity to learn, 
forgive others, forgive myself.
I grew in compassion, understanding,
empathy and love.
My tenacity for good grew
through each hardship.

Wisdom and Love

How many times,
have I tried to move forward?
How many times,
have obstacles been in the way?
How many times,
have I fallen?
It doesn't matter.
Each time I keep moving,
work through the obstacle,
and rise up again.
There are scars and memories
from each fall...
however, those scars are a shield
to continue with wisdom and love.

Live Now

It's a new day.
What happened yesterday
is now history.
What will happen tomorrow,
is not guaranteed.
Live now in the moment.
Make today's experiences
worth remembering tomorrow.

Incredible Journey

Let go, laugh, live, love…
easy to say, is it easy to do?
Maybe not today…
so choose one,
and live it to the fullest.
Life is a series of steps,
that weaves itself
into our incredible journey.

Take Time

TIme is so valuable.
Take time for yourself,
take time for those you love…
take time to tell those you love,
how much you love them.
Today is a gift,
appreciate it fully.

Move On!

9am - 2pm….great day,
the sun is out, everything is good…
what can possibly be wrong?
2:30pm, things quickly turn
upside down.
I'm frustrated, angry, worried…
it all turned so quickly.
7pm…what stressed me out,
is now resolved.
How quickly it changed again!
Now I can go home 
and think about today's roller coaster…
but why?
Should I spend my time thinking
and dwelling on what should have happened,
why did it happen, it could have been different?
I'm here, and this circumstance 
was a moment in time.
It passed and will only continue to live,
if I give it my oxygen…
Move on!

Lessons or Excuses?

I wonder, what is the difference
between a lesson or an excuse?
Here's an example,
I have a certain goal
and it has taken a while to get close to it…
I haven't achieved it yet,
but I have learned a lot of lesson along the way.
One being patience.
This is great…
but what happens when patience lingers,
has it transformed into procrastination?
And do I make it acceptable 
because I am learning lessons?
This one is tricky…
not very black or white 
more importantly,
each experience is different.
I guess the point is to be aware.

Make them count

Life teaches you many lessons.
What do you do with the wisdom?
Share it with those you love…
if there are children in your life,
your experiences can open their eyes,
to realities of the world.
We evolve and grow more conscious
with time…
Our collective consciousness
is tied to our actions, words and thoughts…
make them count.

The Right One?

Being aware of your surrounding
including the energy you are exerting,
can help with understanding.
If a situation becomes tense,
pause and fully engage 
in changing the dynamics.
Attitude is everything,
are you conveying the right one?

Thoughts are powerful….
do you know the depth of your intention?
Take a few minutes to quietly sit
and calm your mind.
No one can do this but you…
and when you achieve the connection,
see the goal, define it, and believe it.
In some form, it will manifest…
just be patient.

Los pensamientos son poderosos…
¿sabes la profundidad de tu intención?
Toma unos minutos para sentarte pacificamente
y calma tu mente.
Nadie puede hacer esto, solo usted...
y cuando logras la conexión, 
veras la meta, definela, y cree en ella.
En cierta forma, se manifestara…
se paciente.

Achieve the Impossible

Opportunity starts in the mind
and gets executed by our actions.
If things don't come together,
it's not because the world is conspiring against us.
There are many seen and unseen
barricades between oneself and a goal - 
it's up to us, the individual to not get side tracked,
consumed or overtaken by guaranteed obstacles.
How much do we want it,
more importantly, do we want if for the right reasons?
No one can answer that but you…
staying true to integrity while keeping focused
can achieve the impossible.

Life with Choice

I heard a great story today.
A man who was incarcerated for many years,
was released and decided he would change his life.
Many of us take that choice for granted…
this man not only knew it was the right way,
it's what he had to do, despite the difficulites.
He spoke at an awards ceremony,
for the non-profit which helped him get back on his feet.
His speech was memorable for many reasons,
the biggest probably because he said
he got a piece of mail that most people hate.
He got an electric bill.
To him, this represented all his hard work
amounted into the integrity of having his own space, 
where he now gets a bill,
AND has the money to pay it.
How many of us cringe with the sight of another bill?
Perhaps, it would be nice to appreciate, 
despite how difficult the times are,
how lucky we are to have our freedom,
and even more basic - our life with choice.

what can I say,
other than I love it.
In my days of confusion,
you would quietly wait
for me to see the light.
You stood by me,
when I didn't believe in you…
You wouldn't give up,
though you had every right to.
I've given into you,
your power, your grace…
I simply love you.

Balance can be achieved
by choosing it.
There is no right or wrong way.
Balance has key ingredients,
but how those ingredients 
come together is up to you.
I've found a level of balance,
because I've realized it's not in a book,
blog, commercial, or magazine…
and though I gain insights
from these different mediums -
the outcome of balance
can only come from within.

El balance se alcanza
si se escoge.
No hay forma correcta o equivocada.
El balance tiene ciertos ingredientes,
pero la mezcla de esos ingredientes
dependen de ti.
Yo he encontrado un nivel de balance,
por que he aprendido que no está en un libro,
blog, comercial, o revista…
y gano perspectiva
de esto medios pero -
el resultado del balance
solo puedo nacer interiormente.

Faithful to Love

There is nothing better than love.
Love has the ability to conquer anything.
Each day I strive to love more,
give more, grow in compassion.
Daily new challenges present themselves…
I choose to be faithful to love,
and let it lead the way.

Letting Go

Attaching oneself to situations, memories,
people, behaviors…it's so easy to do.
How can you not attach to people and memories?
I've read many things
about not having any attachments.
As much as why it makes sense in theory,
my heart isn't made up that way.
For better or worse when I love, I attach.
But sometimes, love goes sour,
the tides turn and life changes.
I've had no choice but to let go.
Yet with time, the initial fear of unknown
has turned into a sort of blessing.
Life is unpredictable…
and while I still attach, 
I also see the blessing of letting go.
Letting go has freed my heart
for new love and opportunities.

For years, I thought I was somewhat weak.
I allowed certain situations
and environments to take over.
Yet something inside of me,
stayed hopeful and optimistic…
I always saw the light at the end of the tunnel.
Now, with time I wonder -
was I really weak?
My strength grew from the hardships,
the difficulties, the disappointments…
more importantly,
strength grew when I had every reason
to want to throw the towel in and didn't.
No experience was weak…
it was purposeful in order to be here today.

Try Becomes Change

I am going to stretch my right leg,
but I already know the result.
I'm inflexible in my right leg...
I've been inflexible since I was a child.
I won't be able to stretch much.
The question I pose to myself,
is my mind somehow holding back
a potential breakthrough,
even from something as small as streching?
What else am I holding back from?
If I keep repeating the same message,
it must be because I believe it.
What if I want it to change?
I have to change the rhetoric
and try, try, try, until
try becomes change.
Change is in the mind…
I see the same thought,
and am ready for it to change.

A new start to a new year…
so much to look forward to.
Everyday, I will remember to be grateful
for all the experiences - 
being here today is a gift.
Let Go, Laugh, Live, Love…
four words to live by in 2012.
