Hello my beauties! I loved this quote by Victoria Erickson- which speaks to my soul! These words ring true, since at night after we contemplate our day- the chaos of it- work, school, sports, family, friends..,whatever it is that occupies your day, we submerge into our thoughts and it is then when our soul wonders, and resurfaces our deepest desires, our dreams, goals, wishes and heartfelt dreams. During this time is when we ponder on our forgotten hopes, wishes and dreams, on all those things that make our hearts beat just a little faster.
So my advise to you is when you awake, you bring from the night all those dreams into light and make them part of your waking day- not in dreams- but in present reality! Live your passion, set your goals, wish fiercely, work harder and believe in the power of your dreams. Do not let them die, nor burry into the night..,live them each day-as only you knows what it feels to have that burning fire ignite your heart and mind.
So follow your heart, and know that there is no dream that cannot come true- if the dream never ends.
What is LOVE?…Love is so many things…Love has inspired paintings, music, movies, poems, writings. How can one single emotion transform and create such beauty in this world? Love is a feeling- the most powerful feeling in this vast universe- a frequency a vibration that can lift us to the heavens and we can live “heaven on Earth”.
“Love is the most powerful force in the universe.” – Mariela Stewart
I am not only talking about romantic love, which on its own- is a magical form of love, where you meet your soul’s counterpart and become one in that moment- forever. But the truest form of love is to see others and love others despite their imperfections and to push the envelope a little further, it means to love even our worst enemies- or in Gandhi’s own words- love the meanest of all creations.
How? I know what you may be thinking- how can you love people you hate or place such strong judgments against or have strong negative feelings stir within you, that you cannot find it in your heart to look past those harsh feelings?….Can you not see a spark of the divine, beneath all that?
The Dalai Lama is turnned 80 years old on July 6, but he doesn’t want any gifts. Instead, your social media presence is the present.
In honor of his milestone birthday, His Holiness is asking people to share photos, videos and quotes depicting people simply treating one another kindly, along with the hashtag #withcompassion on social accounts.
“He has done so much to spread peace and compassion to the world – this is our opportunity to truly say thank you and to show him the incredible impact his work has on the global community,” Ven. Lama Tenzin Dhonden, founder and chair of Friends of the Dalai Lama nonprofit, said in an email statement.
I think we should all come together to honor the birthdate of such an admirable and blessed man who has bathed this world with love and light!
Happy birthday Your Holiness! Thank you for showing us a different way. Let us celebrate the Dalai Lama’s 80th Birthday Wish by living #WithCompassion
Being recognized is always a wonderful thing! However, for me- getting a “thank you” from an unknown source, or someone you may barely know- is just as valuable. The reason I write, teach and provide positive messages on social media and to those who interact with me on a daily basis, is merely to touch a heart. Of course I would love to touch every heart on this vast universe! but even if I just touch ONE heart and help them is some way, everything I do has been worth doing.
I was touched and so grateful by being recognized from Notable Today™ with inclusion in the prestigious Notables List. I hope to continue to make a positive impact on others lives, so they too can realize there is power in numbers and together we can change the world!
I saw this picture today and I totally needed this message(especially after my dysphagia exam)!
Sometimes we forget to enjoy the ride of life, especially when we have a goal in mind, that all we see is the finish line. So don’t forget to stop, take a breather and enjoy the NOW!
