VULNERABILITY - STRENGTH OR WEAKNESS

Good morning everyone!  Happy Thursday.  What does the word vulnerable mean to you.  What does it make you think of?  There are different ways we can be vulnerable; physically, economically, socially and even environmentally.  Sometimes our vulnerability has to do with circumstances and heredity.  Other times it is our sensitive nature that triggers a certain type of vulnerability.  

The word itself can trigger different emotions depending on how we see it.  Today's quote is, "Vulnerability is often confused with weakness - it is an opening of your heart - not a character flaw."  In the area of romance most women want a man who is vulnerable and easily able to share and show his emotions while the manly man looks upon that behavior as weak.  

Why would anyone think sharing emotions is a weakness?  When we share emotions we show that we are human and that we feel.  Everyone feels and by holding back and holding them in all you are doing is hurting yourself.  We know that stress causes illness and it can be very stressful to hold in feelings of anger and sadness when what you need to do is let them out and be done with them.  

Being vulnerable is being open.  When you are open with your feelings you can help others by sharing and recognizing similar situations where you may have been hurt.  In sharing these situations one cannot help but become a more compassionate human being.  Vulnerability is not weakness or a character flaw but a strength and character trait one should be proud of.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

BE YOURSELF -

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  How many of us went to college to study things we were told would benefit us for our future careers whether they interested us or not.  How many of us were pushed either into or away from certain careers because of what someone told us whether we were interested in them or not.  Take it a step further.  How many were pushed into marriages that neither party wanted?  Let me say that for the most part parents want what is best for their children but do they always know what that best actually is?  

Not everyone is cut for 9-5 and certainly not 8-8.  Conventional marriage as we know it isn't for everyone.  Life as we are supposed to live it has been projected onto movie screens for centuries and has left a lasting imprint on us all but what happens when it doesn't resonate with us.  Then what?

Today's quote is, "We are not all made for a life of convention - embrace who you are with love and the utmost respect."  You're not a loser because in a family of doctors you chose botany.  You're not a loser because you chose parenthood before or instead of marriage.  You might be expecting me to say how different we all are.  Its not that.  We are more alike than not.  We want peace and joy in our lives.  We want to be successful and fulfilled. We want love, respect and happiness.  The difference lies in the way we go about it.

We can all sing and we can all dance.  Whether we hit the right notes or step in time, who's to say? Its your song and your moves. 


Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

FINDING YOUR KEYS - Thursday, 3/18



Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  There are two types of people.  Those who throw their keys down wherever they happen to be and those who have a special spot for such items.  My mom is the former and I am the latter.  My mom can never find her keys.  I grew up listening to her perennial quandary.  "Where are my keys?"  It is probably for that reason that I always place mine in the same spot.  On the blue tray on the mail table.  

We can't get into our house without keys.  We cannot get to the store without our keys.  It is the intangible that also require the right keys.  Today's quote is, "Keys that unlock doors hearts and minds are ones we all have inside us given to us at birth - it is up to us when to retrieve them and put them to proper use."

Just like no one can find your house keys no one can tell you when to open up your heart to receive or when to open up your mind to see and understand in ways that you never have before.  No one can tell you when that perfect time will be, it is something you will inherently know and feel.  

The time for expansion arrives not with bells but with a quiet knowing.  When that time comes be ready for the fabulousness that comes with an open heart and an open mind.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone~Love, Amy

TALKING THROUGH VIBRATION

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Seriously my friends, are you feeling chipper and ready to go or are you dragging your heels today.  If I passed you by you wouldn't have to say one word.  I would easily read your mood by either your facial expression, your gait, both or the vibrations you are sending out.  That's right.  Vibrations are visceral.  They are in each and every one of us and although you cannot see them you can feel them in yourself and in others.  

Today's quote is, "The language you speak is understood not with words but with the vibrations within you."  Communication need not be verbal with family members or close friends.  We feel their vibrations a million miles away because of our connection.  What about the ones we aren't connected to.  A co-worker or the person behind you in the grocery store or the one that gives you a feeling of "ick" just to be near them.

No one wears a sign on their forehead that says "ick" nor does anyone wear one that says "I care," but we feel them both don't we.  We steer ourselves from ick and run towards care without anyone uttering a word because those inner vibrations are screaming.

Actions aren't the only things that speaks louder than words.  Through vibrations we speak a language that is crystal clear.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

SPEAK YOUR TRUTH

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all say exactly what's on our minds?  Hmmm.  Let's think about that for a minute.  My favorite TV show of all time is I Love Lucy.  In one particular episode Lucy's friends made a bet that she couldn't tell the truth for 24 hours.  Undaunted she proceeded to do exactly that.  TELL THE TRUTH.  She told her friend that her Asian inspired d├ęcor looked like a nightmare you would have after eating too much Chinese food.  Needless to say it didn't go over very well.  

Hence the creation of the white lie which serves to protect the feelings of those we love and care about. This is where you get a pass to lie.  

The lies that shouldn't be told are the ones we tell ourselves.  We've become very good at lying to ourselves.  We convince ourselves that we are happy when we are not, satisfied  when that is far from the truth and that we really don't care, (the biggest lie of all!).  The real truth is that we are not always happy, satisfied and YES!  We do care.  A LOT!  

Today's quote is, "Empowerment comes from speaking our truth."  Deep down we all know what we want out of this journey.  We want to be happy and fulfilled but if we continue telling ourselves lies we will be neither happy nor fulfilled.  Stop pretending that everything is just fine and allow yourself to know there is more for you. And that my friends is the honest truth!


Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

CREATE YOUR FANTASY

 Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  What is it that brings you joy?  Not just happiness but utter joy to the point of ecstasy?  Wow, that's quite a word.  We don't use it often and when we do I've heard it referred mostly to food.  Real life certainly can't bring you close to the state that piece of divine chocolate cake can or can it?

Why can't real life be just like cake?  Today's quote is, "Ecstasy, real or fantasy - created - attainable it all depends on your vision - your point of view."  How much do you love chocolate cake?  Obviously I do.  Feel free to substitute.  The point is is that excitement for a life other than what you are experiencing now is completely attainable.  Believing it is another story.  It is the yin and yang of our minds.  

While some of you may be tired of reading these same words, they bears repeating.  You can listen to the same story and watch the same movie many times before you notice something different.  You can read the same words over and over again and then one day, BAM!  You finally see them.  OH!  So that's what she means.  

YES!  You can achieve whatever you want.  Manifesting works both ways so stop using words like never, can't, won't, shouldn't, etc. etc.  Change your words.  Catch yourself before going downhill.  Why look at the ground when you can look at the stars.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

CHOOSE YOUR MOVES - Thursday - 3/4

 Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  Which gait do you use when going somewhere?  Is your pace fast or slow?  Is each step deliberate and methodical or hurried and intense?  Determination gets us to our destination but aren't we just as determined whether we resemble the tortoise or the hare?

Today's quote is, "Wander, saunter, meander and drift - prepare yourself for a landing that will take you home to where your heart is and what resonates with your soul."   The point is it doesn't matter how you get there.  The point is that you will arrive exactly on time because there is no time other than your own.  

Those who are highly focused and think they know exactly what they want and where they are going often find that when they do "get there," they wonder why they ran so fast.  The wanderers might envy the ones wearing running shoes but eventually find their way without having to stop and catch their breath.

If only we weren't so impatient.  How ironic but acquiring patience takes patience.  However you roam through this life is up to you.  Wander, saunter, meander and drift and be sure to notice the scenery along the way.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

WINGS TO FLY - Tuesday 3/2

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  What little kid hasn't looked up in the sky and wished they could fly.  I know I did when I was young and even recently while walking with my daughter the same wish came to my mind as we watched two hawks gliding in the sky.  In tandem we both said, "wouldn't it be fun if we could do that!?"  

The size of the bird never mattered.  Hawk or humming bird, they both have the ability to fly.  We might not have wings but we do have desire and it is that very desire that will allow us to fly as high as we want.  Today's quote is, "My wings are the perfect size - they allow me to soar to my destination."

The first thing we have to do is stop comparing ourselves to anyone and be happy exactly where we are on our path.  Would a sparrow envy a dove?  Of course not.  Each has the perfect sized wings to get to where they need to be.  Will, desire, longing and ambition come at different times for each of us but they do come and when they do, you will be ready to fly!

We don't have wings and we never will but we do have drive and desire, all that is needed to soar to our destination!  

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy
