Goodbye 2015 – xo


I’ll try to keep this short.

Time flies, and soon we’ll be ringing in a brand-new year.

Thank you guys all for making 2015 such a great year for me, and I can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for you and for me! I hope you guys are as excited for the future as I am.

Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.


I am ready !!!!



2015 – Thank you for all your lessons…

2016 – I am ready for you….

I try to remind myself every single day to live in the present and not to rush things.

I hope everyone ends 2015 in an amazing way and is ready for a beautiful New Year!!!!


As we enter……2016

new year


As we enter the New Year, it is time for a fresh start. It’s that season where we often reflect and refocus.

As we enter into a New Year, most of us think about New Years resolutions in the hopes of a better year.

 I like to view resolutions  as Personal Growth Plans.

My challenge to you in 2016 is to make this the year where you re-create yourself more than ever before, so next year this time around, your friends and family are saying, “John, I don’t recognize you anymore. You’ve changed. You sound different. What happened to you?” And deep down inside you’ll know that you made a decision to re-create yourself in 2016 by creating a personal growth plan.

It seems that everyone wants to know where you will be when the clock strikes 12, but the question to ponder is actually when that clock strikes 12, are you ready for another year?


Christmas is Over!!!

new year

Did  you get what you wanted or did you get what you expected??  Did you come away satisfied, or are you kind of discouraged by it all? I have some great memories of Christmas growing up , but there were also some times of great disappointment. That is probably true for many folks. Christmas holds such promise for what could be and then the reality sets in.

Let me remind you of a conversation that most of you have had over the last few weeks. It probably went something like this. “You know it is almost Christmas? I can’t believe it will be here so soon!” Remember that? Well Christmas is over, now what do we do?

It’s Time To Start Thinking About The New Year!!

 2015 is nearly history!

Certainly it is good for us to reflect upon what we have accomplished in this past year… But more important is for us to plan for what we will do in the year to come.

 2016 is like a blank canvas…what will we paint with our lives?

Christmas is over…It is time to put away the things that would hinder us. It is time to express our gratitude for all we have received. It is time to get back to the normal routine. And it is time to start thinking about the New Year!!!!


Twas the night before Christmas!!


Christmas Eve!

A night simply filled with magic all by itself,

Many of us know about leaving out cookies and milk for Santa.

But what about his reindeer? I mean, they do some pretty exhausting work hauling that giant sleigh filled with toys all over the world in one night! Those antlered friends are going to need some fuel to keep their energy up.

When I was a little girl, Santa used to leave handwritten notes for me to find after his visit on Christmas Eve

Happy Christmas Eve. Such a beautiful night. So much love.

If you’re celebrating,  Christmas Eve! And if not, I wish you so much peace & love through the rest of the year.


The weather outside isn’t frightful, so how can it possibly be Christmas time?

The seasons upon us?  Is it Christmas almost?  I hear Christmas music everywhere I go, But something’s not right this year: it’s too warm to be Christmas.

It feels no later than middle October – why, I may have to wear a T shirt and shorts….

And here is what I wish for you all on this strange and unusual warm Christmas time: that you do what you can. Dream big like  children, and wish big like them too. Then, if all of you act on those big dreams and big wishes, just maybe all your dreams/wishes will come true!!!

Enjoy the weather, and your wishes……..

Lets make Memories and Dream!!!


Since I was a little  girl I  have laid under the Christmas tree and looked up into it while lit to see the magic the tree held! Now I lay on my bed and gaze at my tree.   Believe  me I  do this every Christmas. It is a magical time,  it is a wonderful time. I suggest you do the same. Get you a pillow, play some soft Christmas classic music  and lay there and dream your hearts desires and see all the wonderful images you will see. Change places every once in a while to find your magic spot. Be young at heart Dreamers. This is the best time of the year and our lives..

Make Christmas memories if only for yourself.
