What’s Mine is Your’s


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?

Love is who I AM.

I AM that, I am.

Peace is what I AM.

I AM that, I am.

The Re-Love-olution is where I AM.

I AM that, I am.

Compassion is how I will heal the world.

I AM that, I am.

I AM the light that shines in the darkness.

I AM that, I am.

Joy is what I will spread.

I AM that, I am.

Kindness is what I will give.

I AM that, I am.

I AM the hope of a new generation.


What I Deserve

Contrary to my environment, other people, negative circumstances, failed relationships, or a bad past, I know that I deserve the best this life has to offer. I’ve had my fill of junk. I no longer wait for others to do right by me. Today, I take back the power to control my life. How? By first believing in my heart of hearts, that I deserve the best this life has to offer. No doubts and no looking back. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Do you believe you deserve the best this life has to offer?

Breaking the Bad

Sometimes it gets really difficult to see the good within ourselves. Lord knows I have been there more times than I care to count. When life changing circumstances, negative influences, or personal insecurities begin to speak loudest in your heart, make the effort to change the conversation.                                                                                            

In a perfect world, fear or insecurities would have no place in our lives. However, what makes us brave is when we make a conscious decision to fight through our battles despite what our feelings or circumstances tell us.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Begin to tell yourself those things that make you a valuable person, ask your family/friends what they most appreciate about you, and do something kind for another person. I guarantee your heart will begin to heal and you will be placed on a path that leads to your awesome destiny.


When the Sun Shines

When the sun shines, it doesn’t ask, “How did I do today?” or “Do you appreciate me yet?” No. It simply shines. Doing what it was created to do. Bringing light out of the darkness. Like the sun, when we are doing what we are created to do, then we are living an authentic life that will bring light into the world.                                                                     As always, live life FUTURE FOCUSED!

Some days it feels as if time is moving very fast. You wake up one day and realize the year is more than half completed. Today is a great day to read that book on your nightstand, take a cooking class, or go on a well deserved vacation. Either way, small positive changes will reap huge beautiful results.
