Adventure

I see my life as an adventure as I explore uncharted territory, taking positive risks. Today, I choose an area to explore that is outside my comfort zone. I see my life as an adventure with continuous, exciting, new things to explore.

Greetings from the Editor:

It's Never Too Late to Push Your Boundaries.

My husband and I went on an eco friendly, adventure trip to Costa Rica recently. We were celebrating 45 years of marriage. Pretty good for a couple that eloped back in the '60’s. I am good at taking risks outside my comfort zone, that is, if I am growing mentally, socially, emotionally or spiritually. I am a chicken, however, to take physical risks. 

Would you believe I went zip lining on twelve wires through the rainforest? I have a picture to prove it.  It was just as scary as I imagined and I did scream all the way on the first line. By the end, I settled down and even enjoyed it – a little. Besides the adventures, we were with 100 other people attending health and nutrition lectures by Dr. John McDougall and eating totally vegan meals. It was a physically expanding week on many levels and the trip pushed my physical boundaries to new levels of experience.

Where might you grow your boundaries?

Fortunate Blessings,

Suzanne


Self-Awareness

Affirmations to Help Our Children

By Suzanne E. Harrill

When my third child was born I noticed some things that my firstborn would say that had a negative spin. This caught my attention because I sheepishly had to admit that I had said these things in less aware moments to her when she was in her formative years – birth to age three. I knew I needed to make some corrections in what I had passed on to my child. One thing I did was to explain, “I know I have said that to you in the past. I believe differently now. I am sorry I said that. Here is what I wish I said and this is what I now believe.” I was learning about affirmations and how they impacted me to override negative thinking. I could see the same need in my daughter as well.

Want Love?

By Sheri Bloom

Hollywood attempts to sell it on the big screen; Shakespeare is famous for writing about it; clothing and makeup stores try to convince us that buying the right outfit, perfume or lipstick will bring it front and center into our lives: LOVE.

But love isn’t something that can be acquired via love songs or stories. And love doesn’t arrive simply because we are sporting a sexy pair of Manolo Blahniks. Sure, we may experience a quick adrenaline rush, but it is merely the Cubic Zirconia of love.  Between the media and marketing, we are regularly bombarded with this illusion of love, and deep down, beneath the Spanx and Botox we know this. It’s why we often experience an insatiable craving to be loved, truly loved and accepted for who we are at our core (and yes, that means without our skinny jeans yet with our bunions)...

Self-Empowerment Affirmations

By Suzanne E. Harrill

What are some words that come to mind when you think of power? Some with a positive connotation that come to my mind are strength and the ability to affect change. On the other end of the continuum I think of control and domination. Maybe you think of a Higher Power when you think of the word power...

Balance

3 Tips to Finding Balance as a Stay-at-Home, Work-at-Home Parent

By Erin Blaskie

Any self-employed person knows that when your work is at home, there are no real breaks.  You don’t necessarily have the option to “leave work at work” because your office usually lures you in with the sound of new e-mail, the nagging to-do list and the endless possibilities to push your business just one step further.

I remember saying to my husband, over the past eight years, “Just one more e-mail…” or “I just need to finish this one website tweak – I’ll be a few minutes!” more times than I can count.  Even when I walked away from the computer, I would obsessively check my smart phone for new e-mail, check Twitter or Facebook for important updates and I would often leave him feeling a bit ignored...

40 Lessons for Finding Strength in Hard Times

by Marc and Angel

  1. You are not what happened to you in the past. – No matter how chaotic the past has been, the future is a clean, fresh, wide open slate. You are not your past habits. You are not your past failures. You are not how others have at one time treated you. You are only who you think you are right now in this moment. You are only what you do right now in this moment...

Spiritual

The Real Secret: Spiritual Intelligence

by William Frank Diedrich

The word spirit comes from the Latin word spiritus, meaning "breath". Spirit is the breath of life. The word intelligent is from the Latin, intelligentia, meaning "choosing between". Spiritual Intelligence is our ability to choose between spirit and ego. We consciously practice spiritual intelligence when we intentionally choose spirit over ego, love over fear, and the highest good for all over selfish interest. 

The Voice of Spirit is the voice of our Higher Self. My Higher Self is that which has never left its creator. All Higher Selves are connected as One. I connect to my Higher Self through my soul. My soul is my dream self -- that part of me that has wandered through countless life experiences trying to find its way back home to the Higher Self. My soul desires to wake up and remember who it is...
