Document YOUR Story

Writing down grievances can be therapeutic. Venting has it’s place. But more times than not, it seems easier to pull up irritants than bliss. It’s really just a matter of focus, a decision you make by the way. Writing down gratitude brings your story into balance. The simple act of writing down what’s on your mind helps you to see prevalent thoughts and then choose focus. And that focus is the rudder to your day, steering you to productivity or complacency, to contentment or resentment. Vent to your heart’s content, just don’t live there. Your Story is waiting for you to begin again.


Awareness and Appreciation

What are you doing … NOW?

“Doing” is an action verb but doesn’t necessarily mean a lot of action. Never confuse busyness with intentional living. Pick up a copy of Soul Speak and read about my own “Doin Nothin Tour”. Every experience has value 🙂




This statement is more powerful than you think. Recognizing and acknowledging someone is a simple exercise. It’s a small but mighty greeting where validation is transferred for no other reason except to give notice, to stop for a second, to look someone in the eyes, and give regard to one another. Pick up your copy of Soul Speak on the Shop Page to read more about the gift of validation at
