Achieving a Winning Edge in a Cruel World.

“When your heart is open you can see love blooms everywhere – knowing the vibration of love is nature’s true essence for life and renewal.”~ Plh

The title of this article does sound rather stark, doesn’t it? Sadly, lots of truth going on “out there” to support this. Bullies who bully, Saddists with sick hurtful and just plain wrong agendas and Power Brokers who utilize our fears to achieve their goals, definitely not for the benefit of humanity or any other life form,  but rather to supply the demand of the greedy.

So what to do BE FEARLESS!

1. Remember the word “WE” needs to be inclusive for all of us to profit. Not exclusive depending on race, location, background, education, gender, age or any other thing that far too often can separate us (as humans) from each other.

2. Know that most of us are caring, loving, generous and extremely capable of awesome ingenuity, intellect, integrity, creativeness and productivity.

3. Hang out with the #2 group. Which is the majority of us (whew!). And most especially,  Don’t allow fear to control your actions. Be fearless, for yourself and others. Be true to fairness, loving values, and gratitude.

And as for the rest? Believe in you and your innate ability to not only make a positive difference, but to be happy and successful with all that you seek to do and be, regardless of naysayers!

As one of you, I wish you the very best in your endeavors. You are not alone!

Thank you. Have an awesome weekend.

With much love to you,

Your Inspiration, Where Does It Come From?

The View From Your Eyes!

“The View From Your Eyes – Infinity of Being is your true inspiration” ~ Plh

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” ~ Patanjali 

What inspires …

Love inspires. Beauty inspires. Bravery inspires. The human spirit of never giving up, inspires. Tenderness inspires. Happiness inspires. Caring people making a difference, inspires. Thoughtfulness, inspires.

A smile inspires. A mother and/or father caring for their family inspires. Children Inspire. The aged and elderly inspire. A young adult woman or man just starting to explore their world inspires.

The changing seasons inspire. Nature inspires. Animals inspire.

LIFE!

Life – in all it’s richness and diversity – inspires!

For some unknown reason I’ve had more than a fair share of close calls with death. Up close and personal close calls where I thought there would be no tomorrow. And I’ve dealt with pain, surgeries and months, years of coping with same, before moving on to a better place, because that happens too.

Raising my children as a single mom, messing up again and again, sometimes making very poor decisions in the process. What I’ve learned is that our life experiences mold us. They shape how we are – and who we will become.

Speaking for myself, I am a female who has survived,  grateful for each new day I get to share with others. I take nothing for granted, staying hopeful that something I say or do will positively impact others.  My way of saying “Thank you” to the universe for allowing me to live another day, sometimes in the face of great adversity. In summation …

Life IS our inspiration and we – through the prism of life, as viewed and experienced by ourselves – can and do inspire others. Inspiration come full circle. How rich we want our life to be entirely dependent on …

… “The view from our eyes!”

Fearless … Never Forget the Nature of Who We Are!

The Spiral of Strength ~ All of Us!

So many things seem fearful today

  • Fear of the unknown
  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of our futures
  • Fear of the threat of terrorism

And yet within each of our hearts, nestled right next to our love of life, is an amazingly unlimited reservoir  of quiet strength, energy and power waiting to be released … should the need be there.

So when you read or hear (daily) the many people (on all forms of media) speaking so many words (opinions and criticisms) about everything that appears to be going wrong; on our planet,  in our country, and our communities, be aware there are many good things happening too. Many. If you don’t believe me start searching online. There are millions of people locally and around the world, making positive differences every day. They’ve already activated their internal power to get things moving away from the negative and into the positive. (Amazing how many of the news media report the negative and not the positive!)

Each of us can make positive things happen too although a good caveat to remember: Change can occur without anger, rudeness, crudeness, vulgarity, meanness, and cruelty – not a good thing – nor nice for a person to say, do or be. Definitely not the way to achieve positive change for yourself and others!

But if you have doubts and fears today, right now … fear less … you are not alone in your concerns but the bigger and most important thing to remember is that our mutual strength of “being there” is HUGE. We, the silent majority and our mutual strength of “overcoming and pursuing the right path” for all our futures is alive and well, it’s never been stronger!

You are not alone , there are many of us and we are … fearless … in all the ways that matter!

Thank you, I hope your week is proceeding well for you.

With affection,

Rethinking Your Thinking – for happiness, health and every other thing.

quote

*

Many of us are struggling with life issues: Health, setting goals, personal relationships, feeling fulfilled as a human being. What has helped me each day is to rethink how I think about those things in my life.

What I’ve recognized is that to feel fulfilled in my own life, I’m the one that decides what has to happen first. In other words if I am the one that decides whether to be happy each day then I need to be happy – just because I can control my thoughts and feelings – it’s up to me.

The same goes with health, setting goals in your life and yes actually figuring out how to support your family. I struggled for years as a single parent raising my children (and I had severe health issues from time to time). What I realize now is that I accidentally made life much harder on myself by worrying, adding unnecessary stress to the various situations that occurred and whether you believe me or not, how you think about where you are right now in your life determines how it will continue to go. When you take positive control over your own internal thoughts & negative emotions an amazingly change will take place.

At least the view from my eyes indicates this to be true. But you decide. As I said it’s up to each of us.

My personal daily mantra:

“Today I will unemotionally  review my life, my values and my true needs and then make  intentional decisions, bringing about a positive change and an immediate improvement to my attitude and total well-being … after all I am in charge of me.” ~ Plh

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your first week in this new year has started off well for you.

With Affection,

Be a Greater Person thru Creative Inspiration!

you

When we find ourselves inspired by some great and wonderful purpose, each of our individual mindsets break their bonds. In that moment we transcend preconceptions of limitations even as our consciousness expands in every direction.

Suddenly the whole universe is available to us (as it always was). Dormant talents, thought processes and forces become online within each of us, stirring our hearts and creative souls; turns out we’re not hardwired into a certain way of being … we just thought we were, setting up restrictive limitations in the process.

But with this new and freeing awareness, we discover ourselves to be a greater person, one we never thought even remotely possible. All because our dreams fired our passions … our passions fired our inspiration … and our inspiration opened up the never ending creative capability within ourselves.

In this coming new year, be that greater person.

Fulfill your dreams.

You can, you know. If you believe you can!!!!!!

Have a most Happy New Year in 2016. I wish you all the very best creative energy possible.

With much affection,

~ Penny

Wake Up Because You Are …

wake up!


You … are your own reality.
  You … are your own destiny.
You … are your own future.

Inside of you is more capability than you can possibly imagine just waiting for you to discover.

So today and all of your tomorrows embrace and love fiercely who you are because you truly are one amazing and awesome person (just in case you didn’t already know this).

I’ll add one more important caveat.
YOU … YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Take care of you.

All my love,
