Within the word Resolution is the word Resolve. Instead of making a long list of what you want, pick what you want to resolve: anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, ego, etc. Choose to heal one negative emotion at a time. Work on that particular emotion until you feel it’s resolution. You will be more open to receive your desires.
Happy and Healthy New Year!
The holiday season is here and it might make you feel joy, stress or fear.
It could bring up family struggles and romantic relationship issues.You may feel bad about your unmet goals and think about what you want but don’t have now.
“What if I never have….?”
90% of our thinking is negative and we spend way too much energy thinking about what we don’t have.
Shift your thoughts to a positive perspective and be thankful for what you have in the present moment.
When you focus on what you have, you instruct the brain to look for information, resources and opportunities to be thankful now. Then, your mind will see more evidence of that every day, and you’ll find yourself having more to appreciate, satisfaction in relationships, and self growth.
Here’s a quote on gratitude by author, Melody Beattie: “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
You have the power to perceive the way in which you view the world. It’s time to change your attitude to gratitude.
Write down 3 specific things you are grateful for and e-mail it to me.
Give thanks and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

He was the king of pop.
He had it all – talent, wealth and fame.
On the news this morning someone said, “His greatness was perfection.”
I want to take a moment to acknowledge Michael Jackson. He was an amazing singer, dancer and performer.
He had it all – talent, wealth and fame.
Yet, he still struggled.
One of my favorite songs by him is, “Man in the Mirror.”
The lyrics say, “If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change.”
Happiness, prosperity and success is not found in what you have.
It’s in You.
As a tribute to Michael, search inside yourself.
What can you do today to facilitate a positive change in yourself?
You can make the world a better place…
We love you Michael!
