Last week I was talking to a friend, Cherylyn, about my new goals and mission for life and she told me about Carol Tuttle, who was involved in mind-body healing. I later found out from my other friends, Sarah - who had been telling about a book called "Remembering Wholeness" that it was also written by Carol.

I did a little research and facebook, twitter, her blog and website later I know a little more about this dynamic individual out to change the world! I like what I have read on her website and have signed up for her weekly emails. I also intend on doing the three day trial of her online resourcs.

Today, she sent me a really fun, inspiring musical photographic message presentation and I want to share it with you all. To see the presentation click here! Enjoy!

A Lesson On Patience

With so many emails coming into my inbox daily, I don't always get around to reading the forwarded messages ~ you know what I mean ~ but I did read this one today and I will share it with you here! The source of the it is unknown. I also found a similar article online for more reading click here: Why does Success take so long?


One day I decided to quit ... I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality ... I wanted to quit my life. I went to the woods to have one last talk with God. "God", I said. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?" His answer surprised me..."Look around", He said. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?" "Yes", I replied. "When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did NOT quit on the bamboo!

In the second year, the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did NOT quit on the bamboo". He said. "In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would NOT quit. In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would NOT give up on it." He said. "Then in the fifth year a 'tiny sprout' emerged from the earth. Compared to the fern, it was seemingly small and insignificant. But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall!! It had spent the five years growing ROOTS.... Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive. I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle." He said to me. "Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, YOU have actually been GROWING ROOTS! I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on YOU.

Don't compare yourself to others." He said. "The bamboo had a 'different purpose' than the fern, yet, they BOTH make the forest beautiful.." "Your time will come," God said to me. "You will rise high!" I left the forest and brought back this story. I hope these words can help you see that God will NEVER give up on you...

Never regret a day in your life.
Good days give you 'Happiness'.
Bad days give you 'Experiences'.
Both are 'essential' to life.
Keep going . . . . . . .
Happiness keeps you 'Sweet',
Trials keep you 'Strong',
Sorrows keep you 'Human',
Failures keep you 'Humble',
Success keeps you 'Glowing',
But Only God keeps 'You Going'!

The Wise Heart

I began learning and practising meditation recently and our meditation guide has read out of " The Wise Heart: A Guide to the Universal Teachings of Buddhist Psychology" by Jack Kornfield a few times! I was always left stunned at an idea or thought that was shared. I found myself seeing and thinking about things in ways I never had! Talk about a different perspecive! I purchased my own copy yesterady and began reading today ~ I love it!!! I am finding peace and joy in awareness, acceptance and mindfulness!

Time for Change

"Without CHANGE there can be no breakthrough, without breakthrough there can be no future."

I have felt a that I have been floundering for a while. I have felt little desire for things and little excitement about life and the future! But all that changed! I began saying "Thats enough!" I talked with many friends and family and began looking for my purpose. I got lots of good advice and comments like "Neglect not the gift that is within you" and "Trust yourself". I prayed and fasted to know that I needed to do with my life, what my mission was. God did answer... and when he did it was so beautiful to see how he had been preparing me for this my whole life. As I told my freinds what I had decided and what hadled to finding answers I could see the tapestary of my life coming together like a fine pice of art. I could see threads running through moments of my life that I was lost, moments where I was in pain, moments when I feared and lacked faith. But God rewards diligent, patient faith and it was miraculous!

Now I hope to inspire others to make the changes necessary to havfe purpose, direcetion, fulfillment, joy and peace! Lets enjoy the ride of discovery and the journey together!
