Every Day Wisdom – Taking Responsibility, a Key to Success!



When you see a problem, you address it, hands on. If you find a solution to the problem then you put it in motion, following the process through, making sure it’s the correct way to go. If you are unable to find a solution to the answers you seek, you don’t stop there, you ask for help from those who are better equipped to assist you with your problem. But you don’t stop until there is complete resolution.

The one thing you don’t do is stick your head down and wait for someone else to fix a situation that left unresolved may turn into a more serious problem down the road.

Those that take responsibility for not only their own individual actions but also by seeking out solutions to other problems in their immediate environment, job or community, contribute to the further well being of themselves and all those around them.

If you’re an entrepreneur, and take personal responsibility for resolution and problem solving you’re creating a proactive, productive and creative atmosphere for both your employees and/or potential customers. A good trade off I’d say. Best of all you can go home feeling very good about a day’s progress.

On a final note: Opportunities are everywhere. When you take personal responsibility for figuring out how and what you’re going to do next – even with the “inspite of’s” (such as unemployment, student debt, unanticipated crises, illness, or any combination of these) you are well on your way to success whether you know it yet or not. You will be successful because you’ve created the best mental and emotional attitude possible for becoming successful. You’ve decided to be responsible for the actions in your own life by doing whatever you need to do to make it happen (and not blaming where you are – in the moment – on other people or factors) ~ Anything is conceivable if you believe it to be so. Always remember this. It’s a powerful affirmation to know and believe in. Trust me on this one.

Just know I’ll be rooting for you because I know you can do this. That you have what it takes … YOU GO ON!


Have a great week ahead,

With much affection,

The Whisper of Hope



Humanity says: “Share with me just the smallest whisper of hope so my thoughts and emotions will hear you (despite the ever increasing global cacophony of change bombarding me day and night with intolerance, prejudice, inhumanity and indifference) and I promise you it shall be heard as the roar of a lion within my heart sick troubled soul and I shall take solace and share your whispers of hope with all who will listen.”

Life whispers: “You are ALL my children and you are loved.”



The Thing About True Friendship …

. . . It Can Be Found Everywhere You Care!



Be a true friend. Care, make a difference – where it counts. There is always room in our hearts for another true friend, always.

But I have no friends“, you say. Then go help someone. Help several someones, but help because you want to. Set no conditions, no requirements.

You’ll discover friendship along the way. And when friends come, nurture the relationship. Share, care and be there!

It will become a true friendship.

Know there are those who will use your friendship, taking advantage of your good will. Do not be discouraged for they do not really understand.

Help those, as you can, with good intent. They will be the ones who decide the direction your friendship will take.

And always remember

“The thing about true friendship is the absolute truth that flows from the heart. No exceptions. It just is.” ~Plh

Thanks for stopping by, have a great new week.

At the edge of your tomorrows …




The word ‘edge’ is an interesting word. A word that can enhance and expand (from a creative perspective) how you may view fulfillment of those dreams and goals in your life.

EDGE: The degree of sharpness (a blade’s edge). The brink or rim of something (edge of a cliff). At the border of something (the edge of infinity). a precarious or exciting state of existence (living on the edge). Provocative or discomforting, a harsh or elusive quality being aroused by any of the emotional states of being.

The follow written soliloquy (by yours truly) illustrates my own fascination and usage of the word ‘edge’ relating directly to the power within you and your ability to reach your goals!


The Edge of Your Tomorrows

“Staring through infinity’s window

you witness all possibilities and potentialities.

Perhaps perilously poised at the edge of life

you …

sense a greater purpose,

feel a deeper belief,

know tomorrow’s coming,

even as you …

remain standing in a state of precarious balance

at the edge of life.

There are those constant nuances – the ebbs and flows –

your everyday’s … everything

lifting you up (or down), yet even so, carrying you onward!


You risk all by just being,

even as you experience much – by allowing,

you embrace tomorrow by accepting,

always aware

that you stand

ever poised on the edge of change …

… perhaps frightening but also potentially glorious and wonderful.

So Go For It – Your Tomorrow, that is.

You. Make It Happen. You!

You Do! Because as always … YouGoOn!”

~ Penny L Howe, 2016


Have a wonderful weekend ahead and as always, take care of you. You can’t be there for others if you haven’t taken care of your own well-being first!

With much affection,

The Nature of Your Nature – An Ascendance of Self


 Heart and Mind

You have emotions and “feel” certain things every day of your life. Depending on the experiences of that day, your feelings are happy or sad, angry or hurt, excited or bored, painful or ecstatic; but you always feel something.

In addition to everyday feelings we have our heartfelt feelings. You know the ones. They turn your life upside down and change everything, either good (which is an excellent feeling) or bad (definitely not so good)!

This then, is your life and each day you’ll be the one who either allows feelings to control actions or you learn to take a deep breath and then act in a reasonable way, wisely determining when to give your feelings “free rein” and when to hold on tightly to them until that surge of emotional upheaval passes.

Which will be in ascendance for you, your mind or your emotions?

“Wisdom ~ definitely the acquired elixir of life’s learned experiences from which one intuitively knows when to imbibe and when to refrain.” ~ Plh

Be safe and have a positive week.

Your Heartsong … Singing Loud and Strong!


Echoes of Heartsong

“The beat

The rhythm

It’s there

And I’m listening.

The sound piercing sweet

Surely the most beautiful thing to be heard.”

~ Plh, 2016

Did you know your heartsong sings for you … sings from you … but mostly … singing of you!

Of the “who” you are!

How glorious and magnificent you are!

Did you know that? Did you?

Your heart song echoes through your being

telling those who would listen

all that’s needed to know,

and even more!

The knowledge that your heartsong is bonded with and shared by many.

Each knowing the other and their own unique heartsong.

All beating to the universal rhythm of life.

So Create, life awaits your heartsong.

Be Passionate, that’s how life burns bright,

Be Strong, you are not alone,

Be Brave, carry on.

know and be assured.

Your heartsong and you

… GO ON!

Thanks for stopping by, hope your week is being good to you.

With much affection,
