UNECESSARY HEARTACHE - Thursday, 6/23

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  Have you ever intentionally caused harm to someone.  Have words ever come out of your mouth that you immediately wished you hadn't said?  Emotions often make us do and say things that bewilder us. 

If for a moment we stopped and took a breath we can prevent harm from reaching its target but when we don't care about the results its more about us than the intended victim.  Today's quote is, "Knowingly causing pain and suffering upon anyone is the ego unwilling to relinquish control."  

There is a problem when the importance of having the last word is more important than the feelings of someone else.  I find it baffling how easily and naturally this behavior comes to some people.  When there is a miscommunication or problem between people, a conversation is all that is needed.

Causing unnecessary pain and anguish is no longer the voice of a caring human being but a self-centered ego.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

POISONOUS WORDS

Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  Who doesn't love a good story.  Especially ones that start with the sentence, "did you hear...." It could be something about a person on the big screen, the little screen or one in our very own contact list.  I like hearing good things about people whether I know them or not but how easy is it to get sucked into that conversation of contempt for someone we never met and one who could be our supposed bestie.

Today's quote is, "Gossip will pull you into a vortex of judgment and ridicule of others as there is no such thing as an innocent bystander."   One is either repelled or pulled in by gossip.  It can be alluring and inviting however gossip by its very nature is based on what you have read somewhere or heard from someone without any basis for truth.

To malign someone you don't know is ridiculous.  To malign someone you know is mean.  What you hear may or may not be true.  Don't give in to malicious conversation.  The one you are gossiping about could be doing the very same thing to you.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

FIX THE PROBLEM

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  Talking about your problems to a friend does one of two things or both.  It can help you because you can blow off steam, however; if done too often, can make that friend want to run for the metaphorical hills.  Truth bomb.  No one wants to listen to anyone's problems over and over again.  

If you are hurting in any way, shape or form it is up to you to fix it.  Today's quote is, "Healing can only happen with one hundred percent of your participation."  Cars don't drive themselves.  Well some do but I still recommend being in the driver's seat to avoid a crash.  When you feel as though you are headed straight for a wall there is only one person to rely on and that person is you.

We are the ones who need to take charge of ourselves, every aspect of our lives and how we live those lives.  How we choose to heal is a matter to take into our own hands as well but can only happen if we are fully vested.  Can you still vent to your bff?  Of course you can but the responsibility of healing is yours and yours alone.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

LOVE YOURSELF

Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  Accomplishing a task gives us a good feeling.  We know the difference between a half assed job and one well done. We know when we have done our best and while it may feel good to be acknowledged, outside validation isn't necessary.

Today's quote is, "To be loved - to be valued - to be appreciated all begins with you."  If you don't love yourself, how can anyone else love you?  If you don't value who you are, how is anyone else going to do that and if you don't appreciate yourself, how can you expect it from an outside source.

We know that self love is important.  Countless books have been written on the topic of self and how we need to be our own best friend, etc. etc.  Without self love, self value and self appreciation we settle in all facets of our lives from relationships to employment.  

Be your biggest hero and let all others follow suit.  Self love, self value and self appreciation begins not from the outside but from within.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

ALL IN YOUR MIND - Thursday, 6/9

Good morning and happy Thursday.  What is good and bad.  I don't mean chocolate is good and liver is bad.  What makes something good and what makes something bad.  A common question asked by our spouse, partner or children (sometimes) when we walk in the door is, "how was your day?"  To which we answer, "good" or "bad."  

There are definitely events and or situations that are better than others leading to a so called good or bad day but attitude makes a huge contribution.

Today's quote is, "The bad day you're having is a figment of your creation."  No one enjoys being insulted, criticized, reprimanded or belittled.  Not my idea of a good time, yet some people thrive on doing that to others.  We are made of different genes.  We grew up in different environments.  That glass that you see as half full is half empty to someone else.  That day you perceive as bad can be perceived as good just as easily.

On the dullest of days, look at the bright side and imagine the sun shining down upon you!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

WHAT IS LOVE

 Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  There's a song by John Paul Young that I always loved. The title is, "Love is in the Air."  "Love is in the air everywhere I look around, Love is in the air every sight and every sound."  Aren't those lovely lyrics?  When we hear the word LOVE often our minds go to the romantic aspects but like the song says, love is everywhere.

Today's quote is, "What is love - it is a sunset - a sunrise -  the ocean waves -  a baby's laugh - love is found not just in the heart but in everything and everyone."  Love is so much more than gazing into the eyes of someone you adore.  Love can be the quiet you need on an afternoon or a phone conversation with a friend.  

Love is taking notice of your surroundings with a fresh eye.  Love is holding space for others without judgement.  Love is deep in your heart and on your sleeve.  Allow love to be in all people and all things Its there, you just need to notice.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

LET IT GO

 Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  Fear is universal.  It is something that every human being and animal experiences.  It is both a natural and biological condition, important to experience because fear actually keeps us safe by allowing survival instincts to kick in when necessary.  

Fear can also be learned.  Our parents can instill fears that are hard to break free from.  It is the reason we don't speak up when we feel we have been wronged.  It is the reason many of us remain in bad relationships and crappy jobs because we are afraid there is nothing else and so we hold tightly to what doesn't serve us out of fear of having nothing else.  After all isn't an abusive relationship better than no relationship.  Isn't an abusive boss better than not having a job?  WHAIT!  WHAT??????

Today's quote is, "Let go - when you let go your world opens up to all - it is only when  you let go that you can fully receive."  Fear keeps us in places we don't want to be and don't deserve to be.  Think highly of yourself and let go of what is not working for when you do the Universe will shower you with all that you want and all that you deserve!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

WHAT IF...

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  What if you won the lottery?  What if you dyed your hair red?  What if you took that trip?  We all have what ifs in our life but its never too late to make those what ifs a reality.

Today's quote is, "Living with what ifs will forever leave you wondering."  Life has so much to offer why not try it all?  While I am blessed with so many things and grateful for it all there are still things I would love to try, to taste, to see and to feel.  

Curiosity is a wonderful thing.  We learn by being curious and the only way to satisfy that curiosity is to try new things.  While there is always tomorrow, while we hope there is always tomorrow, the truth is we never know.  Live your life to the fullest.  Why live life wondering.  Its much more fun doing!  By the way, you can't win it if you aren't in it!


Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

LOOK ME IN THE EYE

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  Those of us who are shy tend to look at our feet when we walk to avoid having to look at anyone.  Disinterest in another reason people tend to look down rather than up not wanting to bother with the human race.

Today's quote is, "Eye contact - the subtle way to say hello and share good vibes."  When someone passes you by on the street, in the aisle of the grocery store or in a corridor and smiles at you doesn't it lift you up?  Doesn't it make you feel good to be acknowledged if only for a moment? 

Eye contact is such a small thing but a big at the same time.  Eyes speak silently and loudly.  We can feel those vibes shooting out in blue, brown, green and hazel.  Next time you walk by a stranger, let your eyes greet them.  It is the subtle way to speak, to say hello and to share all those good vibes.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone, ~Love, Amy

NOT FOR YOU

Good morning and happy Tuesday.  Did you ever think to yourself, "how the hell did I get here and why am I still here?"  When I first began my day job it was fun.  Really!  The environment was one of care, concern and appreciation.  I could never figure out when all that ceased to exist.

I began to realize that I am in a job where I am supposed to make a difference yet not making one at all. My work as a healer extends beyond my Reiki table but politics and lack of leadership created a toxic environment where even with the best of intentions, my healing went unnoticed.  Time to move on.  You know why? 

Today's quote, is, "What is outrageous and impossible is because you were meant for something else entirely."  A job in futility is not a job at all.  It is a redundancy that becomes too much to bear on a soul that craves more.

If I am also describing you, then don't beat yourself up if you feel like you aren't making a difference or you are just taking up space.  Know that it is outrageous to be where you are and impossible to make a difference because you were meant for so much more!!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

JUST KIDDING

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  Who doesn't like a good joke.  It is said that laughter is the best medicine.  I couldn't agree more.  It gets you out of your head and somewhere else, at least for a few moments.  There are jokes, riddles and another type of joke known as sarcasm, a dear friend of mine.

When adding sarcasm to your repertoire, be careful.  It is not always read the way it is meant to.  Today's quote is, "Be wary of sarcasm that off color joke it speaks volumes."  I adore sarcasm whether hearing it from others or being an active participant.  When being sarcastic one must know one's audience.

Aside from being funny, sarcasm can be positively cutting making the one on the receiving end look and feel completely inadequate.  There is a time and place for everything, even jokes.  Jokes should be fun and make us laugh with delight, not slink away in embarrassment.  The lesson here is think before you speak!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

TRUTH HURTS

Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  Much has been written on the subjects of truth and lies.  We are told to both speak our truths and tell no lies, neither of which is a hundred percent possible.  Many of us would like to tell our bosses to shove it but we need that paycheck.  If someone you love added some bulk to their frame its probably a good idea not to tell them your thoughts on the matter. 

Harder still is when we avoid our own truths and convince ourselves of what we wish to hear. Today's quote is, "To admit the truth is hard to hold onto a lie is harder."  Sometimes we are in situations that aren't right for us yet we stay, convinced that its the right thing to do.  

There is a freedom that comes with admittance.  Remaining in places that make you unhappy only cause stress and anxiety in your life and thank you very much, day to day living is hard enough. 

Be honest with yourself.  Did your jeans shrink or was it the extra dessert?  Is where you are right now the best place for you?  Only you can answer that.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

UNLOCKED DOORS

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  There is a key to everything.  A key to knowledge, a key to success, keys to the city not to mention house keys and car keys.  Sucks when you're locked out or can't find those damn keys.  Kinda funny when you realize you didn't even need one.

Today's quote is, "The doors that were closed before were never locked you just weren't ready to open them."  Sometimes we think we are ready for something but we're really not.   For whatever reason that door needs to be closed.

Timing is an important factor in our lives.  Timing lets us know when we can forge ahead or when we must take it slow.  This isn't like letting go of your dreams.  Nope!  Not at all.  It simply means that you were busy living your life of the moment.  It means that you were busy doing exactly what you needed to at that time in your life.  

 Keep on living.  Do what you need to because when you are ready to change, those unlocked doors will swing wide open!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

ACCEPTANCE OF WHAT WILL NEVER BE

Good morning and happy Tuesday.  I don't think there is a kid in this world who hasn't said, "I wish I could fly," but that's all it is, just a wish.  No matter how hard you wish you could fly, your feet aren't leaving the ground.

Today's quote is, "There are some things that are not possible and will never be - accept that reality without regret and understand that some things are not meant to be."  I would love to fly and soar above the trees like a hawk but that's never going to happen.  I always wanted to be tall.  Five foot seven to be exact but that's not going to happen either.  

I know I'm the one who is constantly telling you that anything and everything is possible but if I forgot to add, "within reason," please forgive me.  A large part of success is knowing what is truly possible and attainable.  One should always strive to be the best and to aim for the stars.  Just make sure those stars aren't too high to grab!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

STAY HUMBLE

 Good morning.  Happy Thursday.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if we all had happy childhoods?  Wouldn't it be great to never face adversity?  Wait a second.  I'm not really sure about either of those things.  A happy childhood doesn't always lead to happiness in adulthood.  Adversity is part of life!  How can you deal with adversity if you never faced it?

Confidence is something we gain as we experience different things.  You don't start out as a great anything unless of course you are a prodigy.  You need to practice and the more you practice the more confident you are in your skills.  While confidence is a good thing, we must be careful not to become cocky. 

Today's quote is, "As your confidence rises stay humble - we all rise at different times."   Isn't it better to share someone's joy rather than sitting on a pedestal all by yourself?  We feel good when we accomplish our goals.  Celebrating someone else doesn't belittle our own performance.  


Confidence is a wonderful thing.  Use yours to boost someone else!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

A FLAW OF THE SPIRIT - Tuesday, 5/3

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  How wonderful it is to work in an environment of support and care.  Is that where you work cause its not where I go everyday which is why I was imagining if there was actually such a place?  The proverb, "you get more bees with honey than with vinegar," has been lost on many in positions of power.  Why and when did this happen?  I can't answer that but I can venture a guess.

Today's quote is, "Belittlement is a skill perfected by the insecure and fearful."  The bully is not just the mean kid in the school yard.  He (or she) is also the one who sits behind a huge desk or menacingly walks the halls.  The cause of such behavior is usually due to a feeling of deep insecurity in oneself.  

How could anyone feel good knowing that you made someone feel really really bad?  Another question that baffles me, but I do believe that my quote answers that question.  If someone is insecure in him or herself that leads to outside fears and this is what leads to bad sportsmanship.  These are not the people you want on your team.

Hard as it may be (YES!!!! Its f_____g hard!) but find that twinge of compassion in your heart and understand that that reprimand is coming from a place of insecurity and fear, a horrible place to be!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

CHOOSING YOUR RELIGION

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  A few months ago I had a banter with someone who turned a quote of mine into a religious statement.  I have nothing against anyone's religious beliefs.  I do have a problem with threats stemming from religion.  I value many different religions for their positive qualities not their punitive dogma.  The same reason many others have abandoned religion altogether, taking their focus elsewhere.

Today's quote is, "Let self-belief become your religion."   This doesn't only mean believing in your capabilities but holding true to your moral compass.  Not fighting with anyone to climb that ladder.  Knowing there is enough for everyone.  

Always believe in yourself but to that add kindness, compassion, love and truth and let that also be your religion.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

OH THOSE VIBRATIONS

Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  Have you ever been awakened by a nightmare?  One that keeps you up with a feeling you just can't shake?  I think we've all been there.  When logic and reason take over, you may realize how ridiculous that so called nightmare actually was yet the discomfort it leaves can remain longer than you would like, squeezing its negativity into every fiber of your being.  You know its not real but it sure feels like it is and can even upset your entire day!

Today's quote is, "Your vibrations have created everything around you."   Your day is up to you.  You can turn it around at any point.  Why let a dream, an argument, a traffic jam, crappy coffee or a million other things ruin your day?  

I get the thing about the nightmare and dreams.  They can feel so real but the bottom line is that they aren't so why let something that isn't even real, disrupt or ravage your day.  Let go of those yucky vibrations because they are oozing out everywhere!  They will follow you and show up at your workplace, your home and every human you meet.

Still in a bad mood?  Honor it for a minute then move on.  Good vibrations are where its at and those will certainly be felt by everyone around you!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

A LIFE THAT IS YOURS

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  Conversations with my parents always begin the same way.  Question, "what's new?"  Answer, "nothing."  My dad would always remind me that "nothing" is good.  "Boring" is also good.  Surprises are fun but there are many kinds of surprises!  Ones that are life changing in a good way and ones that throw you completely off course.  

Today's quote is, "Ordinary is life with its ups and downs and twists and turns but extraordinary because it is yours."  Social media has done a fantastic job of letting us know what is lacking in our lives.  The barrage of images we see daily show us how boring we are because we aren't surfing in Costa Rica or wearing designer clothes.

We forget that we might be too busy driving kids to school to be surfing at the moment.  Does that mean our lives are boring?  Hell no!  Its exactly where we are and where we need to be.  How great is it when you find your misplaced glasses, gloves, keys....you name it.  At that moment you are on top of the world and experiencing the most extraordinary moments in your extraordinary life!!!!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

IN SYNC

 Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  Have you ever felt misunderstood?  Not the teenage rally cry of "no one understands me!" but as an adult, around people who just don't jive with you.  Its a strange place to be.  Words are spoken but you hear them differently.  Explanations made in a way you don't comprehend. This is why when we are in sync with someone, we know and when we are not, we also know!

Today's quote is, "It is OK if not everyone gets you - they aren't supposed to ."   Journeying through life, we will come across those we feel like we've known forever.  People we are so comfortable with, who wrap their warmth around us like a soft blanket, but we will also meet up with those we dislike immediately.  The ones that have that something you cannot put your finger on yet create a wall upon first meeting.

Not everyone needs to be your best buddy or even your friend.  When there is a mutual understanding between people, no words need to be spoken.  You can feel it.  There is a song that says, "Love the One You're With," but that doesn't always happen.  

Whoever is in your life is there for a reason whether it is to understand you or not.  Accept it and move on.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

CLOSE THE BOOK

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  These days you cannot go on Facebook, Instagram or the grocery store without running into an over sharer.   They're everywhere!  Better be careful when you ask someone about their day, you're liable to hear ALL ABOUT IT!    Why do we feel the need to reveal every bit of minutia of our lives?

Today's quote is, "Your life may be an open book but not everyone should read it."  I should add that not everyone wants to read it either!  Openness and vulnerability have been all the rage in the past few years but like everything else, we seem to be over doing it.

Do you really need to know the details of a family's stomach flu down to the color of their regurgitated dinner?   No, I thought not.  Do you really need to hear the sob story of a Life Coach and why they are now a Life Coach?  Honestly when I read some of these stories, (I know right?  Why am I reading them?  Its like a car crash that you can't keep your eyes from!!) these coaches would be the last on my list.

We all have stories.  Every one of us.  It doesn't mean we have to spill them out to the world.  Is it a good thing to be open and vulnerable?  Of course it is but some things should be left unsaid and kept to yourself.

DAILY STRUGGLES

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Every day is a new day that brings either challenges or nothing at all.  Are you up for a challenge on a Monday morning?  Would you prefer a Wednesday afternoon?  You don't get to choose.  Days where nothing, absolutely nothing happens can bring their own challenges as well.  Whatever happens in your day you need to be prepared.

Today's quote is, "The definition of strength changes every day."  There are days that roll into one another without a hitch while other times it is one thing after another. 

The strength we need to overcome enormous challenges and difficulties differs greatly from day to day from the daily nuisances, to major annoyances to heartache and grief.  My prayers are the latter is a rarity.

The strength within you is deep and and can be brought out when it is needed for any situation.  Every day is new and every day makes you that much stronger.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

OUR EVER CHANGING MOODS

Good morning everyone!  Happy Thursday.  Every Wednesday I post a breathing exercise on YouTube.  I started doing this because I realized I don't always breathe!  Well, of course I do but tiny shallow breaths don't count.  Its the long, deep inhales and exhales that release stress in our bodies.  These exercises were meant to help me but I figured I can't be the only one who doesn't breathe and so onto YouTube they went!

Breathing also helps with your mood.  We can experience a number of challenges in our daily lives that bring upon anger, anxiety, sadness and hopefully joy.  Knowing that may or may not help but I will share today's quote of the day which is, "Honor whatever mood you are in - you are human."

Last I looked I'm neither fish nor fowl but  (wo)man and sometimes beast! You can be in the best mood and then your boss needs to talk to you.  Wrapped in a bundle of nerves you head on in only to find out you're getting a raise!  That was about three different emotions in ten minutes!

Honor each and every mood you are in.  After all, we are not superheroes but human beings.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

BREAKING BAD HABITS

Good morning everyone! Happy Tuesday.  We are all creatures of habit.  So much so that most of the time we are on automatic pilot.  There are so many things we do that don't require much thought but that also includes things we shouldn't do too.  

Today's quote is, "Bad habits are the road that lead you where you have already been."  Habits can be hard to break but how much sense does it make to repeat what brings you down?  This is where thinking before doing, speaking or acting really comes in handy!  

We are seasoned actors in our lives.  We no longer need a script to describe our actions and reactions, we have memorized them over a lifetime but what if we found a new script?  Imagine how things would change perhaps for the better?

Take a look at those habits of yours and see if they work for you and if not, its never too late to change!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

SHINE LIKE A DIAMOND

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  Who doesn't love to sparkle and shine?  Sequins optional.  That glow you have when things are going your way and working out for you is apparent to the world.  With such command of your world its easy to wish the same for everyone else.  

Does that wish still remain when your world is upside down or is there a twinge of jealousy beneath the surface aching to come out?  

Today's quote is, "You can shine without crushing someone else's sparkle."  You don't need me to tell you that sometimes life is a yummy bowl of cherries while other times its rotten bananas!  Just because you've bitten down on a few of those cherry pits doesn't mean you wish your friends would break their teeth.

Its hard to show joy and enthusiasm for someone when you are down in the dumps but remember each and every phase of life is temporary whether it is hardship or success.

No matter what it is you are going through, show love and support to those who need it and you will receive it in return. 

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

POSITIVE OVERTHINKING

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Are you an overthinker?  That seems to be the theme of most everyone's lives.  Thinking is a highly recommended activity but when over done can cause an enormous amount of stress.  Rather than stressing about life in ten years, twenty years or the world ending why not think or over think how awesome your future will be.

Today's quote is, "Overthink how amazing it will all turn out and it will."  There are many ways an anxious person can contribute to their own anxiety.  Overthinking is just one of them.  Wouldn't it be more fun to visualize the life you've always wanted?  Instead of imagining the worst of anything which really is such a waste of your valuable time, use it to imagine, to visualize and to manifest.

Human beings are so powerful.  We were blessed with incredible minds.  Minds that can wander, think and imagine.  How you use that imagination is up to you.  How will you choose to envision your future?  The choice is yours and always has been so choose wisely!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

BEAUTY REMAINS

 Good morning.  Happy Thursday.  We are four days away from Spring, three months from summer and six months until Autumn.  In that time, buds will form on branches that grow into lush green leaves and change to red, orange, yellow and eventually brown yet at each of these cycles their beauty is not diminished.

Today's quote is, "Autumn leaves change color yet retain their beauty in every stage."  Last May I was doing crunches with Chloe Ting, a stunning, sexy, 22 year old YouTube star.  She promised that if I followed along, my abs would look just like hers so every morning after using my Elliptical machine, I would drop to the floor for my crunches.  

Perhaps it was one crunch too many that threw my back completely out of alignment and straight to the chiropractor and acupuncturist but all I know is that no matter how many crunches I would do, my abs would never ever ever ever look like Chloe's.  It took intense pain to acknowledge that my abs were just fine, thank you very much!

I hope I made you smile but the point is, you are beautiful at every stage.  We cannot remain 22 but who would want to?  Experience and knowledge allow you to grow in different ways and as we become more comfortable with who we are, it is absolutely reflected in every part of us.  Who needs washboard abs anyway?  

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

YOU DESERVE IT ALL

Good morning and happy Tuesday.  Do you think you deserve happiness?  Do you think you are deserving of a good life or is it for everyone else but you?  If happiness has eluded you, what was your part in that?  While there may be times where where we are is where we have to be, we need to know that life isn't here to punish us and when we realize we are entitled to all that happiness brings, it is then that we can move on.

Today's quote is, "You walked away because you deserve better - know that - remember that - believe it."  How often we forget.  Put yourself on a pedestal because if you don't, who will?  We need to remember all the wonderful things about ourselves and all we have accomplished when we were depressed, stressed and anxious not just when we were on top of our game.

Are there times we doubt ourselves?  Absolutely but don't allow that doubt to mean you deserve the broken cookie.  If a situation is no longer to your liking then move on without regret.  Know that you deserve not just the whole cookie but maybe a piece of cake too!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

INNATE COMPASSION

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  We can find how to books on just about anything from making cupcakes to fixing cars.  We can learn a new language online and follow the latest influencer on YouTube to teach us how to put on eyeliner. 

Some things simply cannot be taught.  A caring person is usually not selfish nor is a selfish person typically caring.  Can you teach someone how to care?  Can you teach kindness and consideration?  Maybe but there needs to be some of those qualities already in place.

Today's quote is, "Compassion is an innate quality - one you cannot pretend to have."  Its crazy to think that compassion isn't hard wired into our system but there are those who walk around thinking of no one but themselves.  As a healer it is hard for me to understand that mindset.  As a human being it is also a difficult concept to fathom yet we see it daily.  We see it in our workplaces, we experience this with random people and all over social media.

When did we lose the ability to comfort another who is suffering?  When was it decided that its ok to stroll past the homeless without knowing their story?  Show others the love and care you wish to receive, for that is true compassion.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

FOLLOW UP

Good morning, everyone and happy Tuesday.  Are you familiar with the victim mentality?  That's the one where a person complains how either nothing good or everything bad happens to them.  Its tiresome to hear that, when you know that everyone is in charge of themselves.  We can wish, hope and pray for things to happen but unless you are willing to do something, complaining will be the only alternative.

Today's quote is, "Motion begins with thought but ceases without follow through."   This goes for everything.  You can't get into your favorite restaurant without making a reservation.  You can't lose weight eating an entire sleeve of oreos.  You will be super exhausted if you don't get proper sleep.  Your life will remain as is unless you do the work to change it.

News flash.  Complaining won't change a thing nor will blame.  We are responsible for our own happiness, sadness, success or defeat.  Will things get in our way?  Will unexpected events throw us a curveball?  Yes on both, but don't let that deter you.  The changes you want will happen as long as you put in the effort.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

SIMPLE PLEASURES

 Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  Its fun to have something to look forward to even if it is just breakfast.  I can't eat the same way at work as I do at home so the weekends are when I enjoy a more elaborate breakfast with a real coffee mug next to me.  Ahhh...the joy of simplicity.

Today's quote is, "Simple moments are just as important as milestones - they remind us of the joy in all of life."  Sunshine after rain, a goodnight kiss, the scent of clothing right out of the dryer, the sound of a wagging tail on a pillow are not the things we tell stories about but the things that bring happiness to our soul.  Such simple moments of pleasure that make our days happier and brighten up our moods.

Milestones are memorable but our lives are also filled with moments.  Moments that are equally if not more important because if you think about it, they are constant.  Milestones mark momentous occasions but never underestimate the power of a simple moment.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

ENERGY IS A LANGUAGE

Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  We all know what exhaustion feels like.  That feeling of being so tired, smiling is an effort.  We also know how it feels to be exuberant with excitement.  If given a choice, who would you rather be around?  The one that is dragging you down or the one that is lifting you up?  This question is what's called a no brainer.  Positivity and joy are contagious and I'd much rather catch that!

Today's quote is, "Energy is a universal language - it is the one we all speak."  It is the silent language that is not heard but is definitely felt.  And it is not only felt by humans but by animals as well.  Ever walk into a house with a dog?  Immediately they can sense your love or fear.  

A range of emotions can be felt on any given day.  If you need to be sad then be sad but if you want to get rid of that feeling then find a happy person!  Their happiness will spread to you in the invisible silent language of energy!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

WHO CARES

Good morning, everyone and happy Thursday.  The COVID 19 Pandemic has been an experience like no other.  There have been comparisons made regarding other difficult times in history, mainly WWll.  While most of us were not around during that dreadful time and most of what we know came from books and stories our parents told us.  After WWll, America was booming with phenomenal economic growth.  Corporations grew and people were happy to make money and participate in the American dream.  

After experiencing a lock down, many of us who were unsatisfied with our jobs and work situations left without looking back, discontent with the so called, American Dream.  There are many reasons why this happened, but a big reason is the lack of care from employers.  Gone were the days when people cared about each other.  

Today's quote is, "When indifference is all we can show - all we can feel - our humanity is lost."  What kind of society did we turn into?  When and why did this happen?  It began long before the pandemic, but it took a pandemic to shine a light on the very ugly part of the work force.  How can human beings be so unkind and uncaring to one another?  I saw it happen in the very workplace where I need to show up five days a week.

It makes me happy knowing that my time there is almost up and that I can place my focus on the work that I love.  Supporting my fellow man with true care, true kindness and true love.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!~Love, Amy

YOU ARE GREAT

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Self help books and ones that try to inspire you have been around for decades and thanks to the internet you can google just about anything including how to be the best version of yourself not excluding how to be the best mom, the best wife, the best husband, the best parent, the best of absolutely anything you can think of.  Do we all wake up wanting to be the best at something or are we content to just be ourselves?  Is it ok to make a meal that wouldn't win a Michelin star?  Can you yell at your kids and still love them and have them love you back?   The answer is a definite YES!

Today's quote is, "You don't have to do anything great - just being here is great - thank you for your presence."  We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to do everything right but right according to who?  We put even more pressure on ourselves to be the best but in our quest to be the best at whatever, how often to we ask ourselves at what cost and honestly why?

You are enough.  That's right.  You are enough. You are the best.  You are great.  You know why?  Because you showed up to that soccer game in the pouring rain.  You made dinner even though you were exhausted.  You listened to your spouse no matter how annoyed you may have been.  You are great as you are.  Always remember that.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

NOW I GET IT

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  There's nothing quite like a light bulb moment.  When that switch goes on and you just get it, whatever the "it" may be.  Understanding something new takes time but we are so impatient with ourselves.  Be kinder to yourself.

Today's quote is, "Change what's wrong with me to now I understand."  Why do we immediately go to the negative place of thinking?  Is it a patterned response, something we do to ourselves or a combination of both.  

Whatever it is that you are trying to accomplish in your life or just in your day may take more time and understanding on your part.  There is nothing wrong with you.  Distractions are all around us and sometimes when we think we are paying attention, our mind is only halfway there.

I will repeat once again, there is nothing wrong with you, take time and eventually understanding comes your way.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

THE CHOSEN OUTCOME

 Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  Predictability is comfortable.  Its when we do things and we know exactly what will happen.  It is when we are consciously aware of our actions.  Sometimes we do things and say to ourselves, "what was I thinking" and "I don't know why I did that."  But you know what?  Your subconscious mind knows exactly what it is doing.

Today's quote "There are times we choose the outcome even if we think we didn't."  I'm reminded of the lumpy blue sweater Andi fished out of that tragic Casual Corner clearance bin.  While she may have thought she created her own style, Miranda Priestly reminded her that what she wore was chosen for her.

When you are in the midst of doing something that will not have a good outcome, it is indeed your subconscious mind pushing you towards it.  Speaking from experience, I can say that my subconscious mind did just that.  Was the outcome for me horrible?  

It was at first but then it turned out to be a blessing.  I believe that is why our subconscious is sometimes more aware that our conscious selves.  There is an outcome to every situation and whether we consciously or unconsciously choose it, we did indeed choose it ourselves!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

GIFTS IN DISGUISE

 Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  I love when I get a beautifully wrapped gift box.  I hold it in my hands and look at every angle.  Sometimes just the wrapping alone feels like a gift even if I know something even more beautiful is inside. 

Not all gifts come in beautifully wrapped boxes.  Some come in packages of devastation, dripping with the water of our tears but in our upset, we are too dumbfounded to know we have received a gift.

Today's quote is, "What you think is the worst possible thing to happen is sometimes disguised as the best gift you can receive."  I know because I've been there and I proudly say, more than once.  We all need a reset button but we instead we find excuses, lack the desire or lack the motivation, then BAM!  

The Universe does it for us!  The Universe gives us a gift disguised as something awful when the reality is, with time, we see this most upsetting scenario as a gift.  It's ok to lack motivation.  Its ok to be complacent.  It's also ok to be feel as though you've been side swiped but know that in times when you feel as though your life is a complete wreck, you will be cushioned by the silver lining that's waiting for you.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

REACH FOR THE SKY

 Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Feeling good versus feeling bad.  Is there a question as to which one we prefer?  That in itself is a silly question.  Of course we want to feel good.  Who likes waking up exhausted wishing for one more hour of sleep?  I envy my old self.  The one that used to jump out of bed as soon as she opened her eyes.

I know she'll be back and I look forward to her return.  There's nothing like the feeling you get when you are on top of your game, doing what you are meant to and doing what you love!  When that happens the energy around you is contagious making everyone rejoice in that feeling with you.

Today's quote is, "It is possible to lift yourself up and lift up another along the way."  What's more fun?  Racing to the front of the line or walking hand in hand together?  This is something that is not situational but is a personal preference.

When we feel better our auras sparkle and shine spreading out to those around us.  You can still get to the front of the line but bring others with you.  If life is a competition, see how many souls you can lift on your journey.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

RUBY SLIPPERS

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  We all know the phrase, "the grass is always greener on the other side."  We all know exactly what it means because at one time or another we have felt that way.  Someone who has the better job, house, vacation, car, you name it and someone will have it.  Or so you may think.  

Do we really know the intricacies of everyone's lives?  My life doesn't replicate J.Lo's but I don't want it to.  Is she in amazing shape?  She sure is, but I wouldn't want to work out for four hours a day and so I remain happy with my shape.

Today's quote is, "I don't need to wear your shoes - mine are the perfect fit."  Your life fits you like a glove.  The life you are living was designed especially for you.  Each and every future event was there and will be there so that you can learn, change and grow.  

Can we admire what others have?  Of course we can but what you have is yours.  Love it, feel it and know your life fits you to a T!!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

PRECIOUS TIME

Good morning and happy Tuesday.  Be on time.  Don't be late.  Haste makes waste.  Time is of the essence.  We place so much emphasis on something that is neither linear or truly quantifiable so why do we obsess over something we cannot quantify.  I cannot answer that question.  What I do know is that while we are here on earth at this very moment we should enjoy ourselves and live our lives to the fullest.

Today's quote is, "Love with all your being - laugh with pure delight - our time here is precious make it meaningful."   Time is nothing but a manmade construct.  It is used to monitor and control us.  The ancient Egyptians had the right idea.  They invented sundials which measured the amount of daylight.  They didn't know if it was 1:00 or 4:00 in the afternoon and I suppose they didn't care.  

Time is necessary in the lives we live.  What is also necessary is to enjoy the space from sunrise to sunset because we can never get it back.  Not every minute will have deep meaning and significance but the fact that you are here, breathing, living, eating and just being should be done with purpose and love.  

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

LIFTED BY FEAR

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  Fear is very powerful.  It can make us jump or freeze.  Either way, fear will make us to react.  What will you do when fear comes your way?  Instead of thinking of it as a bad thing embrace it and let it lift you up!

Today's quote is, "Let fear lift you - shift you and move you out of stagnation."  Think of fear as a kick in the ass if you will.  As terrifying as it may be to be afraid and fearful, isn't it worse to be unhappy and complacent?  I'm not talking about scary movie fright.  


I'm talking about the "I can't do, stay, be.... for the next thirty years kind of fright.

That's the kind of fear that can really get one going.  Circumstances may dictate where we are and where we need to be but keep that fear in the back of your mind.  One of these days circumstances will change and that fear that you have held onto for so long will lift you, shift you and move you merrily along.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

GONE AND FORGOTTEN

Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  There's a difference between reminiscing and harping.  I love the word, reminiscing.  It always makes me think of the Little River Band song, named Reminiscing which brings me back to years gone by.  "Each time we hear that favorite song, the memories come along."   And come along they do with fond memories of the past.  

Harping is something entirely different.  "Why did I do that?" "What was I thinking?"  "What happens if?"  It has a much different vibe and a rather unpleasant feel.  What's done is usually done.  You can't redo something you already did.  What you can do is forgive yourself and move on.

Today's quote is, "What happened yesterday is gone, forget it and focus on today."  File this away in the category of easier said than done but let that file be close at hand.  We make all sorts of mistakes.  Some can be rectified; some you can apologize for and others where there is nothing you can do to change the outcome. 

Allow yourself to feel all the emotions that come with it.  Anger, upset, guilt, sadness, devastation, whatever comes to mind but don't allow yourself to relive those moments and emotions over and over again.  They simply serve no purpose.

Leave yesterday behind.  You have more important things to do today.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

WHAT WILL YOU WEAR

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  It is said that eyes are the windows to the soul.  Every eye of every color lets us see beneath the surface.  We can see someone who is kind and caring but we can also see someone who is quite the opposite.  Its like wearing an outfit that doesn't quite fit right.  It just doesn't look good.

Today's quote is, "No one wears envy well."  No one!  Just go to a black tie event with a bunch of women.  You'll see who your friends really are!  I know you are laughing because we've all been there.  "OMG, look what she's wearing!"  Envy goes beyond black tie attire.  

We can be jealous and envious of just about anything but what a waste of time.  Jealousy and envy only take away from your own happiness.  Many live on the island of more, bigger and better.  Its ok to want more to want bigger and to want better but never begrudge someone for what they worked for or what they have.

Wear what fits and envy just doesn't!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

FINDING NEW WAYS

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Everyone has some sort of routine.  It may vary a little bit from day to day but unless you are on vacation most of our days mirror each other.  Having a routine works for most people but when you have certain ways of doing things that just don't work do you repeat those ways?

Today's quote is, "We all have our ways but when your ways stop working what will you do."   The meaning of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results yet I don't think we're all insane.  We just get comfortable and don't want to change.  The real question is will you change?  Will you try something new especially when old ways are clearly not winning.  That's up to you entirely.

This can be the best time to get creative.  Not feeling it?  No rush.  You will know when to make your move because clearly, you are not insane!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

RELEASE THOSE EXPECTATIONS

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  Expectations can lead to disappointment yet we do this to ourselves over and over again.  We think we know how we want everything to work out.  On some level this is very true.  We want what is best for ourselves but sometimes what we think is best really isn't.

We all have goals and of course there are some things we need to do to reach them but what if we took a step back and let things unfold naturally rather than forcing them.  Today's quote is, "I release expectations knowing everything is going to work out as it should."  The real question is can you do this!  Can you really let go of expectations and trust the Universe with all your heart?

I can't tell you how many times the Universe has come through for me.  Like you I've been burned by life more than once.  Like you I've been resentful and bitter but I also realized the house had to burn before being rebuilt.  Its not easy to change your ways but its never to late to try and let life surprise you!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

WE ALL DERSEVE LOVE

 Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  Did you ever come across someone who is angry all the time?  I used to have the most miserable neighbor on one side of me.  The man never smiled, waved or said hello.  You don't have to be best friends with your neighbors but a level of civility should be maintained.  

I like to give people the benefit of the doubt.  If someone is crabby towards me, maybe it is because they had a bad day.  I have bad days.  We all have bad days but if you have nothing but bad days something is definitely not right and if smiling is such an effort perhaps that person is having more than just a bad day.

Today's quote is, "Those with such anger are those most unloved."  That's a pretty heavy statement. When we come across people who seem to be angry all the time do you give it any thought other than to think to yourself, "what a jerk!"  I admit I didn't either but a few years ago I went to a lecture given by a holistic doctor who said that people who are so angry never had love in their lives.

At the time it seemed too simplistic to throw every angry person into a giant unloved ball but if you think about it, I do believe it to be true.  Take my neighbor as an example.  What I found out was that he was distanced from his parents, never saw his sister, was divorced and rarely saw his own children.  After a while his live in girlfriend also left.  Love clearly alluded this man.

Its hard to be patient and kind when confronted with nastiness but take a step back and know that not everyone has been given the gift of love.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy
