  • What is Your Big Picture?

 Have you ever considered that you are the one who has the control over your own big picture? 

Have you ever thought about excluding everyone but yourself from that picture so you can begin to create it the way you would like it to be without any outside interference?

The fact that this is your journey and you are making your way the very best you know how…….why not begin a strategy that brings you what you have in mind for your life.

If you were to close your eyes and bring an image of what would make your life happy what would it be? 

Always remember it is you who must be happy…….no one else can do this for you……happiness starts within ones self.......no person ......place ......or thing can do this for you .....your bright and beautiful spirit must be happy first.

There are many scenarios that you may have that you feel bring happiness:
  • Money
  • Home
  • Relationships
  • Health


These are quite common for everyone but what about a deeper more satisfying feeling about life? 

What about peace and harmony and joy? 

What about grounding ourselves by really appreciating what we do have plus who and what we are?

What if your images that you brought up to create a big picture were those of laughter and joy……..of things that would make your heart happy.

What if you took mental snapshots of your life in all the positive ways you are living and doing things right at the present moment?
What if you appreciated the funds you do have coming to you at the present time and picture them growing larger?


What if you enjoyed everything about the home you have now and focus on all of its attributes while envisioning whereelse you might like to reside.


What if you were thankful about the health you do have at this moment…….for every part of your body that feels good……using your focus to help your body be in the best of health.


Sometimes we get so far ahead of ourselves in what we want in life that we fail to address the fact that we already have so much in material goods and even more importantly daily doses of love.

Sometimes we are so busy looking forward that we don’t live in the moment and those moments then get away from us to enjoy.

This is the time to stop and understand that your big picture is now……it is how you are thinking and feeling and what you do with each moment. These moments are your life.

Remember you are making memories to have along your journey and the most fulfilling are those based on love and joy.

Why not just be……..why not just breathe and be focused on each day ………….why not just clear your mind and then look for the beauty around and within you?

If you are so busy with looking at others……. listening to others…….reacting to others…….then your big picture is not yours is it?

The picture you are creating and the images you bring up in your mind should be of you and no one else……this is how you make the big picture just like you want it to be.

Here are some things you can incorporate when envisioning a big picture:
  • Being yourself.
  • Having your own opinion.
  • Doing what makes you happy.
  • Seeing yourself in the most positive way.
  • Always seeing the best things happening for you.
When you incorporate these things into your big picture you cannot help but find the peace and joy that is truly yours every day……..you start to notice that life is really quite good after all.

Isn’t this everyone’s main goal in life?

Let go of the thought of lacking anything and embrace the thought that there is already so much you do have……..and even more that you can by acknowledging abundance.

Gratitude creates the most beautiful picture of all.

Many Blessings to Everyone!

Letting Go of Drama


Drama: any situation or series of events having vivid, emotional, conflicting or striking interest or results.

We have so much drama in the world today......sometimes in our family.....sometimes in your relationships......sometimes in our workplace.....there is some kind of drama somewhere around us.

It seems that people love drama and love to incite reactions as much as they can.

I would like to say that when you are involved in any dramatic event .....someone who has issues that bring you on board.......someone who is angry continually and vents so you tune in.......someone who brings constant negativity around you......events that are completely out of your control......this is the time to step back and take issue with what you are allowing into your personal space.

These aspects of life the questions begs to be asked: How did I get here and why do I want to participate?

Living someone else's drama is a choice and one that you must look at in terms of how it is affecting your own life.


  • If you are allowing yourself to be caught up in someone else's story what is happening to yours?
  • If you are using your focus on someone else's problems big or small how are you taking care of your own well-being?
  • If you are using all of your energy to try and figure out solutions for other's issues what is becoming of your own journey?
  • If you let your emotions ride someone else's roller coaster where does that leave you emotionally?


The best thing you can do for yourself so that you are on a positive and peaceful path is to choose not to participate in anyone else's drama.

Here are some things that you can choose to not participate in:
Arguments of any kind.
Sad stories told over and over again.
Anything that has to do with the state of the world......country.....city.
The ups and downs of someone else's relationship.

I am sure you have your own experiences which came to mind to add to this list so you know the issues you can choose not to participate in.

Drama is a stress attractor and since this is what you are trying to avoid in life the choice is not to be a part of an on-going drama.

If you are being overly dramatic about something or someone take stock of the situation and ask yourself what you are so emotional about regarding the situation.

  • Could you calm down and see it in a different way.
  • Can you just let go.
  • Can you take it less personally.


Think about not being in a dramatic frame of mind because you can see life so much more clearly when you are not.

I know that reading this several scenarios popped into your mind.......yep......those are the ones you need to let go of and not allow into your day to day thoughts.......those are the ones that are a negative factor and need to be changed so that your life can be as you want it to be without anything holding you back from being as happy as you want to be.

If you wanted to be an actor or actress you would have moved to Hollywood......make sure that the drama in your life is minimal and you choose not to join in the lives of anyone or anything who brings this stressful action around you.

Many Blessings to All

Clearing Your Mind


Do you start your day with a head full of thoughts that have you scrambling around .......worrying about what is going to happen in the day.......what you may have to deal with in your personal and professional life.......making it so you are already stressed or upset?

I would ask you how you could expect the day to be calm and easy.....for things to flow...... if you are already on tilt.....if you have projected problems and scenarios that haven't happened yet but have you uptight and imaging all sorts of things that could go wrong?

Just think of yourself projecting a movie on a screen with your thoughts......what kind of day are you creating.....is it one you want to experience........what would the movie look like if you were to show it just as you are seeing and feeling it in your mind right then?

Remember this is your personal space......the place where you want calm and peace and joy......the place that you actually make it the way it is by the how you think and feel....if you begin your day waking and already projecting the worst case scenario (which is a habit by the way).......you defeat what you truly want for yourself in your life.

So here is how you can bring ease into the day.......to yourself .......and start your day with the best feeling.

When you wake up clear your mind.......completely clear it of everything.......whether you are lying in bed or sitting in a chair.......take a deep breath and let it out.......take another one and hold it and when you let it out slowly feel yourself relax .......you can also feel the way your body and mind respond.

Just pay attention to your breathing......in and out and nothing else.

Take several breaths and you will feel yourself completely relaxing.......your mind completely clear.......and you will recognize the feeling of total focus on yourself........it is so liberating to just be.

When you are relaxed and are breathing in a rhythm of in and out imagine words in your thoughts:

Easy
Calm
Stress-free
Adventure
Love
Peace

Add your own words......one that feel good to you.......if you have one word that makes you feel the best just use it over and over breathing in and out and using the word.

It is all of  these positive things you want in your day.......expect them.......remember you are in control of thoughts and feelings so use only the ones that help you to feel great.

You can also use this exercise during the day when you may be feeling overwhelmed......just stop pay attention to your breathing and clear you mind........then use your words to uplift and help you to feel your well-being restored.

This is your journey everyone.......you have the ability to clear your mind and go forward anytime you want to feel calm and peaceful.......do it and you will find that things just ease up and your frame of mind will be amazing.

There is harmony in life with who you are and how you want to feel........use your powerful ability to clear your mind and be in a place where you know all is well because you can feel it.

Many Blessing to All

What are you embracing?

Embrace: to take up especially readily or gladly

In our times it is really important what we are whole heartily putting into our lives. It is paramount that we are very selective about what we let into our personal space that affects our ability to feel the best we can.

When we allow outside influences into our everyday living we must be sure that they are serving our greater good.

There is so much going on in the world and everywhere around us right now it is best to choose the things that uplift us and help us to find a peace and a calm in our thoughts.

We can do this by eliminating so much of the information that we are receiving about the state of affairs everywhere.


  • What if you chose to not be in tune with day to day accounts of world news?
  • What if you chose to read only uplifting articles on the Internet?
  • What if you made music one of the staples in your daily life?
  • What if you tuned into things that make you laugh daily?


We can embrace so many things and they are all by choice........we can say to ourselves how do I want to feel........what would I like my outlook to be.......where can I look for things that uplift and challenge me to an open mind and a light heart.

There are so many options today in our digital world........find things that help your spirit soar and let those that do not see life as beautiful......that do not have hope for the future......that display anger.....be who they are with your choice of not embracing their energy......of not expanding anything that does not feel good.

Let us embrace hope......let us have faith in our ability to bring our own joy to the fullest it can be......let us realize that our own personal space is what we choose to make it. Let your space be a place that is full of positive energy so that the negativity others have does not affect you.

Just think for a moment......if each person on the planet was in charge of their own space and made it as joyful and happy as possible what kind of world would we have.......what if the majority of the planet did this........there would be a major shift for the better.......just be responsible for yours so there is a movement to change any negative energy to positive.

Here are some affirmations for you:

"I choose to bring into my space things that help me to feel good about life."
"There is good in the world and in people and I choose to look for it."
"Life is beautiful and mine is wonderful each and every day."
"I choose to focus on all things positive about life."

Embrace the beauty and the love of life that surrounds you.......embrace all that you are and allow yourself to choose a pattern in your life that tunes out anyone or anything that disrupts your peace and tranquility.

Many Blessings to All
