From Breath to Bounty

The physical manifestation of DOING seems simple enough. Action, we are taught, is almost instinctive in its ease. We are raised with the notion of simply doing to produce any given result, and taught that the consequence of such will shake itself out. If all you know is to simply do a thing, then it’s…

The Red Line

What does it take to draw a red line in the sand? How much is too much? Where is your boundary, and when you reach it… what will you do about it? Some of us are very clear about this line. Some of us see the line, recognize it as the last possible place of…

The Energy Bank

Energy, like time and money, is currency. We give it, we share it, we receive it. Since we cannot create or destroy energy, we have no choice but to view it in terms of quality and quantity. Whether we respect it or not, we all have a proverbial energy bank. Typically we come to respect…

START

Inhale… Here’s the reality for many people: they know WHAT they want. They don’t know HOW to get what they want. Even without the loftier wishes, hopes and dreams of the most ambitious of imaginations… getting started is often the hardest part. The naive will say ‘just start.’ Okay. Just start WHAT? The crafty will…

I AM… Ready

Plans. We all have them. Some of use talk about them. Some of us realize them through action. Some of us are forced into action by some external force that leaves us little to no choice in the matter. And some of us sit… and wait… and wait… and wait for just the right time….

I AM… Mother

This post is dedicated to the people who do good in this world, but are shy about recognizing their contributions. The person in this next story would rather live the life than talk about it. So we’ve been tasked with sharing her story with the world, while also keeping her anonymous. THE FOSTER MOTHER: This…

Your Voice… Your Choice

“You know that thing where you open your mouth and no sound comes out…?” Yeah, we know that thing. We’ve all had it happen at one point or another when we should probably say something… and maybe we even try… alas, there is only silence. Sometimes this means what was intended to come out might…

I AM… Laura

I first learned about the power of my voice while performing in theater as a young girl; I noticed that it was the only time people would listen to me. I became obsessed with theater from then on, and loved the ability to become other people through various roles. But as I got older I…

Listen…

… to the one person who you are least likely to listen to. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how potent, how perfect a message is. If the wrong person for you is conveying it, there’s a pretty excellent chance that you’re not going to pay attention. And even if you do (pay attention), you’ll likely listen…

I AM… Racquel

When did you discover your personal voice… your personal power? I think that I am always discovering new layers of my personal voice, and it becomes more clear to me as the years add on.  I am the oldest of four and I can clearly recall how much pride I took in being a big…
