At the beginning of each year, my wife and I set our intentions for the coming year. For 2017, we are working toward decluttering our physical spaces and being mindful of our spending. Recently, we decided that instead of hiring someone to make the necessary repairs in our bedroom, we would do it ourselves. So we began taking everything out of the room and quickly realized that we had an obscene amount of stuff tucked in every nook and cranny. I was utterly unprepared for such a sight.
Today, our house is turned upside down and it feels amazing. We have been busy clearing the house of items that no longer serve us. And in the process, we are blessing other people. So many times throughout this experience we have heard, “I needed one of those” or “I was just about to go out and buy that.” It has been an incredible feeling being a blessing in someone’s life while working to reclaim your own.
At the start of this project, I never knew that my junk would mean so much to so many people. We have donated to friends, family, strangers, and organizations. This has been an incredible experience. I feel so free and happy.
My little bit + a giving heart = limitless joy.
How do you bless others?
Feelings of great pleasure and happiness equals JOY! Who or what in your life gives you great pleasure and happiness? Be kind and share that joy with others. You never know, your kindness might be the lifeline a hurting person is needing. As always live life FUTURE FOCUSED!

Today I want to share with you my annual State of the Heart Address.
Last year, I made a vow to myself that no matter what happened, I would make a choice to wrap myself up in a Love Bubble. My Love Bubble has been a tremendous eye opener. It has opened my eyes to blessings that I wasn’t able to see before. My Love Bubble has literally changed my life, world, and spirit.
So this Valentine’s Day is unlike any other. I have a greater appreciation for myself and everything in my life. During the darker moments of my life last year, the only thing that changed was my thinking. Through my thoughts, I thought myself a beautiful existence. Through my thoughts, I thought myself bigger than any circumstance. Through my thoughts, I thought myself as love and the desire to be a blessing to others. Lastly, through my thoughts, I thought myself blessed beyond measure! And today, I am all of these things, through my thoughts!
What is your State of the Heart report?
Life can be amazing on many levels. A few days ago, I was reminded of just how far I have come as a human being. I recalled many dark and traumatic places and times. Those times felt so real that I believed it was my only reality. Fast forward to years later, and I can see just how many negative circumstances that I successfully overcome.
My secrets to success have been my deep spirituality and surrounding myself with healthy and trustworthy people. I have learned to not only to spend quality time with God, but to listen to His voice and follow through. And just when I needed something the most, the right person(s) was always there. My loving and life saving support system.
Each life experience has helped to make me into the woman I am today. So in this moment is a woman grateful for her life and the ability to live it to the fullest! I am proud of me!
What have you overcome?
Because your heart is so beautiful, everything looks beautiful to you.
Recently, I have shared about my Love Bubble lifestyle. But since then, I have experienced one incredible phenomenon after another. I’m not sure if its the smile on my face, the frequent spontaneous laughter, or the overwhelming feelings I have to compliment strangers on random things, but one thing is certain. Because of this new and wonderful Love Bubble, so many wonderful opportunities are running to keep up with me.
The people I meet can feel this energy and tell me, “I want whatever you have.” So here are the secrets of my success. I wake up every morning and fill my heart with gratitude and make a commitment to myself to remain grateful!
Are you living in your Love Bubble?
