The Creative Corner Newsletter

After coming up with the idea in July, I’ve finally sat down and completed my plans to begin offering a weekly newsletter to all those who subscribe either through, the one time pop up, this post, or through the subscription sign up form in the sidebar of my site.

I’m calling this free newsletter the Creativity Corner, and it will be dedicated to giving people a creative boost/motivator in the middle of the week. Right now I am planning to send out the newsletter every Wednesday, starting with this Wednesday September, 18th.

Expect to receive an inspirational quote or positive affirmation to get things started along with a tip or advice to becoming a master of creation, which we all are, but sometimes need that extra reminder.

Those who subscribe will get a special offer from me as a thank you for signing up. Can’t wait to start this amazing new journey with you!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

Free eBook: Five Steps to a More Peaceful Life

I am excited to present a free ebook that might just change your life! I have dedicated a large portion of my time the last year and a half to finding a more peaceful life, and have decided to share some of the important things I learned along the way. I discovered five main steps that I want to share with you.

Why is this free? It’s my way of paying it forward. We all deserve peaceful and fulfilling lives. It is my mission to start actively doing what I can to promote more peace for myself and the world. The first step is putting this book out there for whomever it might resonate with.

Please feel free to download for yourself, or to share. If we want to make real change in the world, we first must start with ourselves.

Enjoy!

Speak Your Truth: Chasing the Magic Bullet

Sometimes we can’t help but hold on tight to a certain dream or idea. We cling desperately because we want change. We want more. We want out of a certain situation, but we just don’t know how to make that happen, but we dream. We make plans. A part of us believes it will never happen, but we still hope that there’s a magic bullet out there that will transform our lives into something better and grander than what we have.

Deep down we really cling to the hope that some magic bullet will appear and cut through all the crap, all the ridiculousness our lives have become and instantly make things better for us. That magic will make all the bad parts disappear or become irrelevant because our day has come, we have zipped past the problems and been catapulted into a dream come true.

We make excuses, because we have gotten so hung up on that particular idea (whatever the idea might be, it differs for everyone) to come save us so we don’t have to save ourselves. There’s not much forward motion. We are too busy waiting for that magic bullet. But one day we get tired of waiting, so we start doing something to help that dream along.

Maybe one day we wake up and it finally hits us that the magic bullet really isn’t coming, and we start to feel the pressure of doing it ourselves. The pressure builds and life just doesn’t seem fair. Others’ seem to get their magic bullet, so where is ours? Continue reading “Speak Your Truth: Chasing the Magic Bullet”

Speak Your Truth: Accepting Things As They Are

How many times do we wish things were different? Or a person wasn’t so loud and obnoxious? How many times have we thought about the different ways we can renovate our home or change the way we look?

Have we even stopped to appreciate a situation for what it is? Maybe there’s a reason that situation is as it is? Maybe it is trying to show us something, to teach us an important lesson?

Maybe that obnoxious person isn’t as annoying as we think? Maybe there are some amazing qualities of that person we didn’t see because we were too busy looking at the obvious?

Does our home really need a new paint job right this minute? Have we even stopped to appreciate the fact that we have a home and a roof over our heads?

Do we really need a new hairstyle, or those new flashy clothes right now? Have we stopped to see ourselves as we are? Do we love ourselves even without that new swanky outfit?

We may not like something or someone, but it’s really not necessary for us to like everything in any give moment. But not liking can lead to stress if we allow it. That’s why we seek to change things. We think that if we can make it better and to our liking, then the stress will disappear. But what about the stress of trying to change something, especially if it’s something beyond us and our immediate ability to change? What about that stress?

A Writer’s Wings Book Release!

A Writer’s Wings is finally published! This book took awhile for me to put together and edit. Even though I mostly copied entires over from a journal I kept for years, the formatting and editing process took a long time to complete as I had a lot of upheaval in my life while attempting to finish this project. So I am glad and proud that this particular journey is over and I can release it into the world.

While I understand that this kind of book may not appeal to some people, I found it important to put down my story to show as an example of how incredibly important journaling can be to move a person forward in their personal growth. People ask me all the time about journaling and how to do it. Well, this book is the best example I can give.

If you’ve been wanting to journal and didn’t know how to start, then read this book. If you are journaling and want a reminder of why to keep journaling, then read this book. If you are simply curious about me and my life, then read this book.

Here’s the book blurb…
