It’s Life


We all have feelings. We are humans. Even the Dali Lama has bad days and suffers grief. Our feelings are what make us human. Life isn't always laugh-out-loud fun. We all at times suffer. It’s a reality.


Yet, as we suffer, we always have the opportunity to grow our spirituality, even with our various setbacks, illnesses, wars, and a planet that is now struggling for life. We don’t have to suffer; with fortitude, we can thrive.

Learning to let go of pain with acceptance, and processing trauma is vitally important. We don't have to carry all of our suffering with us throughout our lives. We can't change what has happened to us, but the past doesn't need to be re-experienced in our thoughts indefinitely. Our minds don’t need to keep redirecting us to pain and suffering. We need to reel in our minds when they are spinning out of control. This is the key to living a long life, with less extreme bumps and dips.


All the suffering/shame we experience in our lives, when we look at it through a lens of healing and growth, can help us to heal our old wounds. Our life experiences can teach us where we don't need to go, down the drain of memories and despair. We can learn to get back into the flow, to emerge from the mucky traumas into the light of the personal wellness of our daily lives. We can illuminate our own future. There is light in every moment.


We don’t get over the loss of loved ones who have passed away. We miss them, often many times daily. We do learn to live without their physical presence; we must, to go on. Grieving is a process and it’s different for everyone. Expressing our grief helps us to heal. It’s not easy navigating grief. Sometimes help is needed.


Grief is never something to be ashamed of. Our hearts break; we do mend in time. I full-heartedly believe we will always be united with our loved ones, through our endless love. The circle of love and energy is never broken.


Clearly, life isn't what advertising and the media says it should be. I'm not the fictitious normal. Neither are you. Being positive balances negative energy. I've been through my share of grief and trauma. I continue to move forward with dreams and positive energy.


As I have learned and I’m still learning, every one of us is a student of life. Even the greatest teacher is still learning how to get by in a world facing so many challenges. As I let go of the past, I can more easily move forward into a bright vision of the future.


Perfection is nonexistent. Living perfectly, always acting positive is not real, but we can re-focus our perspectives and change our worlds.

I'm me -with all my imperfections, mistakes, grief, the extra ten pounds, my beautiful aging body and all the wisdom of my years and the open curiosity of a seeker, of a life well-lived!

I have my dreams; many have come true, and I continue to create new dreams.


I am excellent at manifestation. I know that as I focus with positivity on the future, I'm a part of the healing for the evolution of our planet, despite the current chaos.


This doesn't mean my life is perfectly positive. It means I choose to focus on positivity and gratitude, so I don't get stuck in my mind. Sometimes I slip and have funky days or even months. But I continue to pick myself up, nourish myself and allow myself to grow. I do my best to learn from my personal struggles.


We're so often challenged with living in what seems to be a harsh world. Learning mindfulness, compassion, and honoring that no one is perfect are the keys to creating healthier self-awareness and community.

Beaming love to you!
