The Secret to Happiness

I remember watching the DVD, “Secret to Happiness”.Yeah I cheated, I didn't read the book.After watching this entire DVD, I was ready to start thinking positively to allow for the powerful energy to flow freely.  Bring on the happiness.
I can honestly see this working.  There’s a lot of truth to thinking positively and believing in success, but I stumbled upon my own answer.
The secret to happiness in my eyes is GIVING.  Yep, it’s that simple.  If you are wishing for a Blessing you must first be the blessing.  When you give to someone without wanting anything back in return the reward comes in two folds.  First, the person who you are helping will receive the benefit of your giving.  The second reward is what you feel when you see the person happy.  Hearing someone say, “Thank you” is extremely gratifying and will in-turn make you smile.  Knowing that you’re making someone else’s day can truly have a positive effect on you.

Your giving does not have to be big.  It can be a small act…

Soaring Higher and Higher

I have started taking a huge interest in hawks.  I've never noticed them before.  I've maybe seen 3 in my entire life.  Recently, I see them everywhere! This alone made me stop and wonder.  The logical side of me knows its mating season and probably normal for hawks to be flying around.  The other side, wonders if there's a meaning behind these miraculous hawk sightings?  
I was on on a 6 hour road trip just the other day and I easily saw 12 hawks during the course of our travels.  At one point, I noticed 5 hawks perched on a billboard sign.  It felt like something was smacking me in the face saying, "Do you see us now?"  
Low-and-behold the second I typed, "I see hawks" into the search bar, answers started flying across my screen.
The hawk animal is a messenger.  These sightings represent a spiritual awakening.  Hawks soar high above the trees, but have keen eye sight to see even the smallest animal on the ground.  The message I am receiving has to do …

Judgement Free Zone

Oh the beautiful hurdles of life.  I'm learning to love them even if I don't agree with them.

I remember growing up it was hard for me to be friends with a girlfriend if she kept going back out with the same loser boyfriend.  She would come to me crying and seeking advice.  I would give her all the advice and support she needed. Then she would get back with him.  I felt slighted as a friend like she chose him over me, but that was not the case, she just couldn't help how she felt for him.
Today, I am completely over those childlike feelings.  My girlfriend and I have a saying we use often, "If you like it, I love it."  I absolutely love having a friend who's ultimate goal is to see me happy.  Don't get it twisted, we need to be frank sometimes, but we understand there is a time and a place for deliverance of the undesirable truth.  There are times when I specifically ask for the truth.  There were other times when she simply says, I just need your support…

Living with Expectancy

Wow!  This article was published in Metro Proponent January of this year.   5 Months later it's all coming into fruition-- every single thing I stated in this article.   Speak life and love into everything you do! There's power in words.

Big changes are upon the horizon.  2014 has a lot in store for us.  I am speaking it and believing this into existence.  I hope and pray you do the same.  
For me personally, I am ready to take a big leap of faith in hopes to finally walk into my purpose.  I don't want to chase money, beg for promotions, work holidays and continually sacrifice my peace and happiness for what other people think I should do.  When you really think about it, are you happy with where you are in your life?  If yes—that’s amazing!  If no, what’s holding you back?
These are the questions I've asked myself every single day this year.  Some days it brought tears to my eyes because my answer would always end with the same result- I have bills and need this check. …
