Is something missing? Are you searching for more meaning?


Is something missing? Are you searching for more meaning?

Does this sound like you?

At the end of the day, you sink into the couch mindlessly exhausted by the day's activities, you think, "Certainly there has to be more than this but my goodness, I am too tired to think!"

You work so hard and are constantly being pulled between work and family responsibilities often feeling guilty for not giving it your all here or there. Your career has plateaued; this isn't the life you dreamed about.

You do everything right but nothing ever feels right. You manage to fit in a manicure or a hot bath with a glass of red wine or white :) and wish that this luxurious time could last forever. But it doesn't and you are off racing again responding to what is needed from you.

You are searching for more, more time, more meaning, more something - just different from what you have. You dream about changing your job and being happy - one day... maybe tomorrow, maybe when the kids are older, maybe when I have more money. Does this sound like you?

I heard something the other day that was so true by John Assaraf: Knowledge is not power. Application of Knowledge is Power.

So if you are like most of us who have a few (or many) inspirational self-help books laying around, grab one and begin to really work through it. Apply the information that really resonates with you in your life.

Create rituals each day that reinforce these principles, like journal writing, meditation, visualization, affirmations especially in the morning and evening. If you need a book or want more inspiration, I have created a workbook called Follow Your Heart.

Leaving you with a little inspiration~

"One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others." ~ Lao Tzu
"At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want." ~ Lao Tzu

Enjoy the day & Embrace Your Life!
