Sharing the Light


Hi all,

This is my first post of 2016 and I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year.  I am excited to be here. There’s nothing I love more than the freshness of a new year that is filled with so much hope and promise. This year feels much lighter than the last and will be a time for many I’m sure where previous efforts will pay off. I smile at the thought of dreams coming alive for all people.

There is no greater joy than seeing another person blossom before your very eyes and I have been lucky to witness this with the people in my life. I have seen miracles and experienced miracles myself. I believe anything is possible especially if we work together towards a better world and future.

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle,
and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

A life shared is a life worth living. When we reach out our hands to help another we can’t help but light up our own path. It is the way. We create a ripple effect of kindness and happiness that lasts generations. No matter how big or small they may be, it never goes unnoticed by the Universe. It all counts and I am so glad to be part of this in an ever changing world. I hope you are too.

Sending you blessings for the year ahead.

Do it anyway…


People are often unreasonable,
irrational, and self-centered.

Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse
you of selfish, ulterior motives.

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere
people may deceive you.

Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend creating,
others could destroy overnight.

Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
some may be jealous.

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
will often be forgotten.

Do good anyway.

Give the best you have,
and it will never be enough. 

Give the best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is
between you and God.

It was never between you
and them anyway.

– Mother Teresa –

I came across this passage and I think it speaks for itself. The words carry such power in a beautiful way and I wanted to share it here. Have a wonderful week all.

In love and light,
