I remember the day well. It was about 10 years ago and I was standing in my kitchen at my cottage in Northwestern Ontario…..
At that time it was my new cottage or camp as we call them in our neck of the woods. I had just recently acquired the camp and it was a life long dream come true. My biggest motivator was to have my own daughter, who was around 5 at the time, play in the sand and make sand castles just like I did growing up on a lake.
I was also motivated to have a place in nature where I could write and be inspired.
Anyhow, on to my story……
I was standing in the kitchen and expressing my JOY to my nephew Byron and I shared how happy I was and that I felt that I had everything I ever wanted in life. I had a happy relationship with an amazing man, a great daughter, work that I loved, my home, and now my camp.
And I said something like this: “Sometimes I think I must be dying because I feel complete or that I have all that I ever wanted”. Byron quickly said to me a phrase I will never forget....
The life changing phrase….
He said this: “Aunty you want a red convertible”. 🙂 And I said “No, I don’t” and he said “Yes, you do!” And I said “NO I don’t!” And he said again “Yes You DO!”…. and then it hit me and I understood what he meant.
He meant don’t stop dreaming and don’t get ready to die. Keep dreaming and keep striving. I don’t think Bryon realized that day how powerful his words were and are to me to this day!
I have since had more dreams come true. In fact, I sit here typing this at my most treasured place of two years… my little lake house on the shores of Lake Superior which has been more than a dream come true!
My dreams are bigger now and grander but the best part is that now they are outside of myself.
I have been studying internet marketing for many years and all I can see are opportunities to amass wealth and abundance. But with that said, my dreams now are more to do with making positive changes in the world and showing people that they too can be dreamers and pursue their passions.
I am just starting to formulate the causes that I will assist with and I am open to the universe to show me where my resources will go to make the world a better place, all while I have JOY on the journey.
I hope that you too never stop dreaming and that your purpose on earth is something that you support and encourage so that your soul can flourish!
I send you all much love today and always and in all ways.
P.S. Side note:
I just remembered that I have always had this vision of riding in a convertible on the coast of California or somewhere… okay the red convertible might make the list after all 🙂
How is your attitude toward yourself? Are you in alignment with who you want to be?
Once again, this is a lot about self-love. When we can have a positive attitude about ourselves and when we think positive thoughts about ourselves, we activate the frequency of love and acceptance which is a beautiful thing. 🙂
I hope you spend some time today appreciating and loving YOU!
In recent blog posts around thoughts, thinking, and the power of affirmations, we talked about thinking good thoughts to attract more good thoughts and affirmations about embracing who we are which in turn helps us to love ourselves more. These are all important because they help us to love ourselves more!
When we love ourselves more we spread loving energy and shine our loving light onto others and it truly becomes a breeding ground of love and more love.
The more we soften and embrace the loving energies within our own hearts, the more we open the highway of love for everyone.
Love is the common thread of who we all are. We have come from love and we will return to love. And we can love ourselves and others all the way back to where we came from. And as I often quote my favorite quote from the late Ram Dass:
Flow. That is what comes to mind when I think of aligning with my soul and with who I am. When I re-member and connect with my divine self, I feel in alignment. When we are in alignment, our internal and external energies can flow and lead us to those people, places and experiences that… Continue reading Align With Who You Are

Be a thought thinker and you will be in charge of your own life! Thoughts are tools for us to use as we will.
Thoughts are the magic wands of the creative workshop in our minds! Thoughts are to be honed and crafted for the task at hand.
If you find yourself thinking negative thoughts, change them!
Step 1 is to identify that the thoughts that you are thinking are not making you feel good.
Step 2 is to declare that you realize and recognize that this is so.
Step 3 is to declare that you wish to choose new thoughts and then do it.
For example, maybe you think that the people in your life are not supporting you and it makes you feel unloved and unworthy. Change your thoughts to supporting thoughts so that you start supporting yourself first! ie. “I am not sure that the people in my life are really intentionally trying not to support me, maybe they are preoccupied with their own battles, but either way I am going to support me right now and in this moment! And I will start by telling a new story about what I think is happening and my story or thoughts around this go like this….. and then tell a new and improved version that is positive and becomes an asset to you, not a detriment.
For example maybe something like this. “I understand that everyone in life is going through stuff right now. I am not the only one and I can’t control the actions of others but I can control my own. So with that said today I am going to support and love myself a little more. Hey, maybe I will go for a walk and show myself that I do care about my health and well-being. 🙂
The main point in all of this is that you consciously choose and craft your thoughts around those things that especially are causing you pain first and foremost. We want to move away from pain and fear so that we can start attracting positive thoughts and feelings about our life and in turn thrive rather than just survive.
