What does Valentine’s Day mean to you?

How many of you are hoping for something special on Valentine’s Day? The advertisement and stories surrounding this famous day tell us this is supposed to be the day of romance and love. It is on this day the love of our lives shows us how much they love us. Or is it?
How often does this special one live up to our expectations? For many this is just a day of disappointments, because what we had hoped for didn’t happen. In many ways the same goes for money. Our hopes go up and then they are trashed. Money doesn’t always live up to the expectation we have. It is this love/hate relationship so many have with money.
How does your relationship with money resemble your relationship with your loved one?

Love and peace,

Updating the blog site

The blog has been in updating mode since Thanksgiving.  Some things have already changed, as you can see, but there are still some changes that have not yet happened.

This is a very slow process and the hope is that the end result will be a great improvement.

Please bear with me while the blog is in this in-between state, and celebrate with me as things improve and we continue on our path of living a Life of Abundance.

Love and peace,

Just change the story

What is possible when we change the story line?  It is invented anyhow.  At least that is what the authors of The Art of Possibility Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander are saying.

How often have you not seen any feasible solution in a situation because you have already decided the outcome, i.e., the story is already written?  What would happen if you just changed the story, since it is only invented anyway?  Would the outcome change if you wrote a new story?

I often tell people about my problem finding things.  My story was; I can’t find anything.  I’m always loosing things.  Then I would go on to the problems I was going to have because of it.  I don’t have to tell you about all the anxiety and wasted energy because I was holding on to this story.  One day I decided to add something to the story.  It was; and then I always find those things.  When I’m relaxed I find them.  And by some magic I started to find things.

Saying this is what the book is only about doesn’t give the authors proper credit.  It actually goes on to talk about eleven more practices that give you great ways of doing things differently.  The possibilities are endless and we can do so much more with simple changes.

Using these practices can definitely help you live a Life of Abundance.

Love and peace,
