So waste no more time. If you are going to dream, dream big.

If you are in a rut, do not despair. Keep placing one foot in front of the other as you go through it. You are brave and you shall not hide. You will face whatever life presents to you and do whatever is necessary to catapult you forward. Keep reminding yourself that pain will transform to joy if you allow it. As long as you keep your vision of a magnificent life close at hand and never lose sight of this, it will guide you even when you cannot see. Go within and gain your strength from everything that has made you the person you are right now at the present time. For you have everything that you need to get you through, change is the only constant, and this too shall pass. Everything does happen for a reason. Strongly believe in your heart of hearts that the reason you are going through any experience is one that will change and transform you for your highest good. Never lose hope, for it is true, there is power in each moment. And, with each moment the opportunity exists for miracles.

With practice, patience, perseverance, and passion, we plant the seeds of life and hope that they will grow into something amazing. Just because we don’t see the fruits of our labors each day, it does not mean that something magical is not happening beyond the physical plane. While we may get disillusioned when the results of our hard work fail to break ground immediately, we need to continue to care for what has been imbedded without fail. For as long as we pull out the weeds that can suffocate and foster an environment where we can grow, the wonders instilled in our beautiful garden will soon be discovered. Each friendship we make and opportunity we take, like a beautiful flower, started out as a seed. Each step that we take towards worthy goals nurtures the relationships and events that provide a foundation for a fertile life. Then with faith in the outcome, we allow the light of the sun to do its thing. As we take in the positive energy from above and below, our garden is in the process of realizing its glory. It does not serve us well to judge each day by the harvest we reap because so much is going on behind the scenes. It serves us well to come to joy based upon how we care for the seeds that are the foundation of our dreams. For it is only in time, divine time, that the seeds that we have planted will burst through and explode with magnificence! Know this!
Magical Key to Bliss: Nurture your dreams with inspired action and trust that they will grow.
“Do what you did in the beginning of a relationship and there will be no end!”
The people you love are blessings in your life. When you are introduced to someone special, you recognize the energy of the other as it aligns with your own. Be it a friend or a lover, there is beauty in the desire to get to know them on a deeper level. As a result, you are awake when you are around them. You are happy when you do things to make them smile. You are excited when you share fun and exciting times as your heart expands. Over time, if you do not protect this bond, these very special relationships can be taken for granted. If you are not careful, anger, distrust, and miscommunication can chip away at that initial strong foundation of love. Do not give up hope for the wise person knows what to do to rekindle the embers that first sparked in initially. When you nurture the other from a place of love as you did in the beginning, you remind them how important they are to you. Even if you cannot see results at first, you set out on a path to align yourself with love once again. It is never too late to begin today and start to show those who are blessings that they mean the world to you. Before you know it, any remorse of the past will fall away and the relationship will transform before your eyes. Not only will there be no end, ultimately you will change for from a place of worthiness, you and your loved ones will blossom!
Magical Key to Bliss: Reach out to someone you love telling them how much they mean to you!

“Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you; be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them.”
W. Clement Stone
“Aiutati che Dio t’aiuta” is an Italian proverb that means God helps those who help themselves. While it is a good reminder, sometimes it is hard to know exactly where that divine hand is especially when you feel that no matter how hard you try nothing helps. In the middle of the frustration, perhaps the key to experiencing an intervention when you need it most is to do something, anything you can and then relax knowing this loving presence will take care of you. This magical puzzle will only be discovered if you choose to sort through the pieces before you, looking for the best ones to fit your own vision. When you get perspective, you shift to a mindset of empowerment even when you are at your lowest point. You will gain clarity, tenacity, patience, guts and divine assistance as you put one foot in front of the other and trust your instincts as you choose where to go next and who shall accompany you. Each new addition to the whole picture diverts your current course towards miracles and your own masterpiece. For there are miracles in doing what you can. For your good associations in this life will dictate all the good that you will attract, your relationships will feed your soul and the places you will go will shape your world accordingly! All leading to a vision that unfolds wonderfully before your eyes!
Magical Key to Bliss: Observe the happy ones and where they go and look to join their fun!
“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.”
Children are often asked the age-old question, “What will you be when you grow up?” The response is generally enthusiastic as the child ponders all the possibilities that their future could hold. If adults are asked the same question, the reaction is generally limited by the belief that it may be too late to change the path that they have already chosen. If we shift our approach and believe that it is our privilege to become daily who we truly are, then it must follow that the best of our story is still being written. Think about it. We are born with a purpose. In that little body and mind, the seeds have been planted that if nurtured and cared for will allow talents and skills to be developed that will serve us well. As we are delivered opportunities along the way, we have the privilege to know ourselves more. When we accept that everything is unfolding as it should, we can truly trust that the choices we continue to make are perfect for what we need to learn. And we can continue to become as we go. Stand proud with no judgments yet only the desire to be true to our path. This is truly the privilege that we all have as we experience life. Thank each and every one along the way for being true to themselves, it gives others permission to do the same!
Magical Key to Bliss: Shift your perspective and become a work in progress each and everyday!
While I have always thought that anniversaries mark major life events or accomplishments to celebrate, it almost seems like an oxymoron to think that I could ever celebrate 4 years without you. In actuality, what I celebrate today is that we, my family and I, did not give up after you, our center, moved on to “that better place.” I hope that it has been a better place for you. It seems like this world has gotten more cynical since your departure, yet there still continues to be beacons of light. I still look for the “ones” that continue to bring the light too. There are many and they talk of spiritual awakenings like no other. You would love the conversations. While I cannot compare them to you because not many can hold a candle to you in my eyes, the blessings still come. Wow and you would be so happy with the current Pope. He embodies his namesake, Francis, in words and deeds. He is bringing love and mercy back to the church that you so loved and worked so hard for. It is encouraging to say the least. Movement away from dogma to a better fulfillment of what Jesus came here to represent, unconditional love and forgiveness for the many, not the few. It makes me happy to see. Baby steps moving forward in a positive direction! I have really paid attention to what moves my soul for the better and moved away from those things that do not. I still wish that I could talk to you about it. Remember those hours we spent at the kitchen table. I would arrive exhausted after a long drive, but still would look forward to sitting with you and talking about so many mind-stimulating topics. I had a deja vu when I got in on Friday, you would not believe it but Dad actually sat with me at the kitchen table to discuss philosophy. I felt you smiling down on the two of us.
We all came together to celebrate your still living memory and legacy. We all miss you so much. So much has changed in four years since we last saw each other, since we last spoke, since I last held your hand. It does not seem possible that so much time has actually gone by. At the same time, it has been a long four years without you. My children have grown up so quickly. Michael, now 12, has gone from a little boy to a handsome, wonderful, sensitive and caring young man. He is learning and reminds me often how I must have tried your patience during the growing up process, but his accomplishments far outweigh anything. You would be so proud of Ava, now 6. She is everything that I could ask for in a little girl, creative, smart, bold, caring, loving and the image of you as a young girl. She is a pixie and I remember your words, her strength and determination will serve her well in this world. I am doing my best to keep your memory alive for them. Michael has his vivid memories. Ava has her imagination and of course the healing hands that you blessed her with.
It still is hard to believe that you are gone. While it has not been easy, we have managed to move forward and not quit. Death is such a strange thing. People say it should not be feared, but we are all human and loss or death of the intimate daily connections can be a tough pill to swallow. I think after you experience loss of someone so close to you, it changes you. You see the world through different eyes. You experience life in a different way. You begin to appreciate how precious and fleeting it all is. And you are faced with a choice, go after the joy or take it all for granted. While I wish I could return to a time where death did not impact my life so closely, wish that you were still here, It seems that if you are going after the joy, then to embrace that everything happens for a reason is the way to go. Because if you accept and surrender to certain things happening for your highest good, then the reason will come and the joy can return. So while I have managed to move through some really challenging times without your wise counsel, I have to know that whatever guidance you had to give me you did and accept, surrender, let go are the only options that will lead me to joy. In that respect, I have managed to take steps to live past the fear and memory of your final and very painful last days while remembering your incredible smile, your incredible voice that could brighten any of my days, and that big shoulder of yours that let me lean on you when I needed you most. And you would be so proud of dad. He and his faithful companion Zacharia, have held down the fort with Aimee and her family by his side. Everyone is doing what they can. I think that you would be really happy with all of us.
But four years! I still ask why like a petulant child. I still wish that I could share my good news with you in person, face to face. I am human. But it is becoming more and more ok because I choose joy and because I know when those “something wonderfuls” happen, you are right there with your hand in the mix. And believe me, some incredible things have happened since you have gone on the next stage of your journey. And as I leave the negative behind and accept where I am right now, I continue to find more balance- 2015 – the year of 8 and perfect balance and harmony in all areas of life.
They all say I look like you and remind them of you. Other than the artificially dyed black hair, you were your own unique beauty and I could never hold a candle to you. As far as intellect, you were a force to be reckoned with and filled your own shoes so well. I could never hold a candle to you. I am just doing my best to be my own person, just how you would have wanted it. So as i conclude this letter out to you in the universe, I would ask that you continue to watch over us on this April 12, 2015. Sitting by your side four years ago on this day, you asked me in a vision to let you go. While it was so hard to even fathom my existence without you here, I have been in a process of doing this still to this day. I am letting you go so that I can become the person that you, my mother, would want me to become. My own person, mother to my beautiful kids, setting out in this world to make a difference, yet given the confidence to do so because of the unconditional love that you gave me.
Thank you mom. I always asked you to pray for me when you were here and it calmed my soul. I continue to ask the same, pray for me, pray all of us to find balance in this crazy, wonderful world. Help us to see the good in everything as it unfolds. Guide us in our decisions. And continue to protect us all with your amazing love. I will never celebrate life without you, but I will always be grateful for the legacy and impact that you continue to have on my life as i continue welcoming each sunrise of my soul’s bliss. We will never forget you!
I love you so much today, forever, always-
Mommy and Michael -2006!
“If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.”
William J. Clinton
If you dream big, don’t get discouraged on the journey. As long as you put one foot in front of the other, you are one step closer to realizing your dream than you were the day before. So never quit! If you dream big, don’t let mistakes turn you away. As long as you make them a part of your learning process and take the lesson as you go, your reward will be great. Continue to make commitments that you proudly stand by. Set firm and flexible deadlines to guide you along. Never quit! If you dream big, even if you falter, as long as you keep your vision close, you will continue to guide yourself despite the enormity of the task at hand. As long as you do something each day and use your intuition as a guide, you will meet success face to face with the pride that comes from never giving up on that burning desire within. So never quit! With your dreams, your life journey becomes exciting. With your dreams, you will know magic. And with your dreams, you must be open to all the connections that you attract to yourself. As long as proceed to manifest your dreams, the field of potential will react in kind and deliver those miraculous surprises if you stay the course. So never quit!
Magical Key to Bliss: Never quit no matter what!
“We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.”
A mother’s love is the first and greatest gift of human affection that we receive. This amazing bond of energy is vital to each individual’s growth. There are many things that we as a human race can survive without; affection is not one of those things. For all of us to thrive, we must reach out to one another with care and empathy. When we know we are loved, we are able to do and accomplish so much more as it emboldens us to grow beyond belief, spiritually as well as intellectually. Relationships are such an important part of our lives. While we are here, we have the power to liberate another from loneliness with love. While we are here, we have the power to impact another by including them to experience a life colored with joy. While we are here, we have the power to mother another once again with the kind of love and support that we desired in our first days. For the beauty comes from the realization that while our mother was our first and most important introduction to love and affection, she is no longer the only source available to us. We receive this energy from so many more people on the path as we set out to build a community of kindness. If we take the gifts received from the kind and gentle affection in this world and make the commitment to share them with one another, we all flourish. Mirroring the love of whoever chose to mother us out into the universe, we set the world afire with warm embraces, supportive handshakes, kind words, and loving attention.
Magical Key to Bliss: Show affection to someone who needs it today and share this incredible energy.
