“Our bodies have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. But not to be overlooked are the senses of our souls: intuition, peace, foresight, trust, empathy.
The differences between people lie in their use of these senses; most people don’t know anything about the inner senses while a few people rely on them just as they rely on their physical senses, and in fact probably even more.”
― C. JoyBell C.
And as my wise sister, Melody, has said… “You are so much smarter than you think you are…….listen to your heart…listen to your soul….listen to your body….then trust yourself. “
YOU KNOW. You really do.
Dear Important Girl,
It is a common and very debilitating malady in our society to feel “NOT GOOD ENOUGH” .
Well…guess what, gorgeous soul? There is never a question of whether or not you are good enough. YOU ARE GOODNESS.
You were born good, you were born to BE good, you are made of goodness. YOU ARE GOOD. YOU ARE GOOD ALREADY….YOU WILL ALWAYS BE GOOD. We live through experiences that chip away at the truth of this….a truth that is immutable. Tough, learning experiences do not change our goodness. They teach us….making us WISE AND GOOD.
Never forget that you are not only good enough…….you are just plain good.
And you are so very very very loved. xoxo
We are all reeling from the horrific events in Boston today. We are praying for all of the victims and their loved ones and all of the good and brave people everywhere who are doing whatever they can to help……the ‘helpers’ (as Mr. Rogers called them) are innumerable.
This afternoon, my hope was renewed, and I was reminded that love and light ALWAYS WIN…ALWAYS….when I read the following posted by comedian/actor Patton Oswalt today. It reflects my own feelings 100%…and perhaps it will help put things in perspective for you, too. Here’s what he so beautifully said:
“Boston. ___ horrible.
I remember when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, “Well, I’ve had it with humanity.”
But I was wrong. I don’t know what’s going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.
But here’s what I DO know. If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we’re lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they’re pointed towards darkness.
But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago.
So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, “The good outnumber you, and we always will.”
Sending you all so much love today,
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”
Sometimes we forget that yesterday has already packed its bag and finished up….that tomorrow doesn’t have any idea what it is going to do yet….
But TODAY we have every single possibility right in front of us.
Don’t let the past or the future steal your TODAY…..this is the day that you have RIGHT NOW….do something BIG, BEAUTIFUL and WONDERFUL with it…
It is all up to you. xoxo
“You will find that it is necessary to let things go, simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them go.
LET GO OF THEM!
I tie no weights to my ankles.”

We live in a world that is constantly trying to teach us to get what we can for ourselves…to ask “what’s in in for me?” … when, in reality…the greatest joy comes from loving without expecting anything in return…from helping each other along and looking out for each other.
When in doubt…do what is kind, do what is merciful, do what is most loving….and then let that be enough….it’s really a happy happy happy way to live. xoxoxo
