“Relax. You can’t control the Universe”
I believe that you have been given dreams, visions, gifts and talents,
because you have been chosen
as one who can put them into action.
The point is not whether you succeed or fail, as others define it.
The point is that you DO IT, because you want to,
and you have a dream that needs to live.
Life is a Blank Canvas … Fill it with Color
Your expectations of others are yours to keep.
When tough times fall
Put the mind to gratitude
Her world became smaller and smaller and smaller. So small, that she fit into an oyster shell, and silently became a pearl.
courage and kindness
prayer in light-filled rooms
guide the way
Shut down that phone, look up from that display.
We have a finite existence, a set number of days …
see food seafood
mussels yet to be cracked
delicacies they say
she never eats the stuff
it’s for the birds!

Use your intuition. Ask the Universe for what you need, before you need it. Predict. Ask ahead. She listens.
What you are talking about might not be the thing you are talking about.
Creativity is all about courage. The courage to stand alone, when nobody else is there.
Every single person, without exception, is creative.
When people have fun, more learning gets done. When people have fun, more things get done.
We just have to look and listen within, and be curious about our own experience.
Creativity: You cannot fail, if you do not give up.
Blog every day. She thought.
But then the sun came out.
And she forgot.
Don’t be afraid to compliment and encourage strangers. The world needs more compliments, encouragement and less criticism. It is an awesome way to live, too.
become grateful for the teeny tiniest of moments and seconds.
He’s breathing heavy
Right by my side
My big dog
she’s my healer.
a trustworthy confidant.
she keeps all my secrets safe.
my heart opens wide,
in her presence.
Rain was falling everywhere
She ran and ran
Darted and dodged
Aimed to miss each raindrop
Not wet once
Zig and zag
Precipitation could not touch her
Faster faster she went
Circling jumping dancing leaping
People grow apart
A new chapter begins
Hope is all there is
Dreams are enough to get you by
Everybody else is wrong
They don’t know yet
What you know
Let them catch up
Be the frontrunner
All the time
She doesn’t know
When darkness will hit
So on she goes
They come out of nowhere.
Here and there.
Your mind is the most powerful thing you own and it’s FREE to use however you want. Use it for good. The brain/thought is an incredible gift.
The best way to get through tough challenges is to feel it all, feel all the emotions, and then move on to happy ASAP.
Joy heals and uplifts.
Life will lift you
Where you want to go
Well and whole
Isn’t just a dream
The mind goes
The mind wanders
The mind drifts
The mind repeats
Again and again
The mind travels
On trips you wish to avoid
The mind takes detours
On roads you’d rather not travel
The mind jogs on paths
You’d prefer to avoid
The mind then races
On a marathon
I prefer to live in the living.
All that I can be.
Death is in the far far distance.
Survivor does not call my name.
Life calls louder.
Life yells loudly.
“Come here Brenda! Let’s play!”
I don’t fit in, or belong, most of the time, and in most ways. This as a good thing, an asset. Not fitting in means you stand out. Not fitting in means you’ve resisted or embraced weird and strange and even odd. Different is where it’s at. Unique you are. That, is where the YOU lives. Not much you can do about it. Just is. Be.
