A little piece of us dies every day. From our very cells to pieces of our heart forever changed by the pains and challenges of yesterday.
The other side of that truth is everything is reborn again. Everything. It is in our details. Our perceptions. Our truths. Every day a part of us is brand new.
The magic in the gift of understanding this powerful oneness is that hope, strength, and love, spring eternal. The challenge is to lean into the wind with an open heart to hear the beautiful call of your destiny. It is there. I promise.
You are alive! Carpe Diem! Rise today and smile a smile you have never smiled. Help one more person. Let one tiny argument go. Let angst have a go at itself today while you lean into the wind. While I miss my mom every day and my journey sometimes brings me to my knees, I have learned to say "thank you" while I'm down there because as soon a I get up, I know my gait will be refreshed, renewed, and reborn.
Today, I am thankful for the wind. It spreads seeds so they can grow new food, flowers, plants, and life. The wind cools you on the hottest of days and if you listen carefully, you may your hear angels joyfully singing of all you believe you have lost. The song can fill your heart and restore your faith. Today, I am thankful for each person who reaches out to me with a quest for hope. You restore me every day. You, many times, ARE my wind. You are my angels.
I will set out for today's adventure with Nixon with the wind in my heart and the sun on my face. I bet something spectacular is waiting for us to discover. Gotta go! Gotta get there! I know the same gift is waiting for you. Open you heart and close your mouth! All you are wishing for is already here.
Here is Mary Elizabeth Frye's poem, Enid’s gift to my family. Our gift to you.
About a year ago, my first article published was called Control. Alt. Delete. Reboot Your Spirit. The “hard re-boot” of my internal motherboard was extremely hard and dauntingly scary. However, it was the best thing I could’ve done. Through my honesty and willingness to accept myself as less than perfect, using humor and my three-step action plan, I freed myself to live, dream, and hope again. There are still many frustrating days when I find myself slipping back into old habits and self defeating behaviors. It happens to the best of us, all the time. The best thing to do, is refer to a simple action plan with easy steps to remember. As always, I share my steps with many publications and life coaching clients, thebabyspot.ca being one of the most near and dear to my heart. Ever authentic, thebabyspot.ca, the Editor in Chief, and her staff, have supported me and lifted me many times…even when I couldn’t find my own voice. Each day I remember to be grateful for at least three things, my son, my journey, and your support from around the globe. Thank you. Each one of you. You enrich my life and motivate me everyday. Thank you for all the notes and emails. Many bring tears to my eyes. I know you’re out there. Try to remember to enjoy your journey. Believe that everything ALWAYS works toward the greatest good. On tough days remember you can always change the way you experience the events in your life. Control. Alt. Delete. Reboot your spirit, find humor, and give love.
Control. Alt. Delete.
As mothers and fathers, we find ourselves rolling our “tape” when we are around others. From the work setting to social gatherings, we roll a tape of what we are about and the points that we want to get across to the person listening to us. Many times, our “tape” is embellished to drive a point that we are “nice people, powerful people or respected people.” We do this because we want the listener to gage similar feelings about us. When we roll our tape, we are solidifying that our character, whether real or exaggerated, is presented in the best light to illicit whatever validation we need. However, once the meeting is over, we have allowed a listener to think something about us that perhaps is not true and we slowly chip away at not only our moral compass, but our character.
Alexsandra Wright has a great three step method to stop this. Like a computer, we have to control, alt and delete.
The answer to being comfortable in our truth is simple. We have to stop our tape. However, it is the procedure that is hard. Many of us can’t stop rolling out the points we want others to know. Alexsandra asserts that the first step is to CONTROL our words and thoughts.
“Stopping our tape requires us to really listen to what we are saying. Every word. We must take notice which words we use to soothe or validate ourselves, our actions, our feeling and ultimately, our existence.”
Do you find yourself name dropping? Do you want the listener to know about your powerful job or how you are a much stronger person then you really are? Why do you want them to know these things, especially if it just to get a reaction to make you feel good about yourself, garner sympathy, and position yourself as more powerful than another person? Control yourself from falsely validating.
Alexsandra’s second step is to Alter your words, thoughts and feelings. She suggests to give yourself some time, whether alone or in a social setting to BE STILL. Think of the words you use to validate yourself. These words will “tingle” a bit according to Alexsandra. Like a slight burn, you know that these words do not feel good and it’s time to give some focus to the problem area. Alexsandra wants you to notice that you are trying to convince someone of something. That someone is not the listener, it’s YOU. Stop right there! Take a deep breath. Instead of saying something in that moment… examine YOUR moment.
Okay readers, it’s time to purge. Yes, those uncomfortable moments according to Alexsandra are the ones that make us feel that we need to be our biggest and best self. However, seize the opportunity to be your AUTHENTIC self. Say nothing. Be in your moment. Most of all, LET GO of who you think you NEED TO BE and become WHO YOU ARE.
Are you being your authentic self? Leave your story in the comments section below!
I knew I'd survive, after all, I always have. I knew I'd live, after all, I always have. I just did't know if I would live in Technicolor again nor if I'd ever DREAM again. Now I know... It's better than a dream! It's my reality. I've earned it. So have you. If you are still in the midst of your "night"...HOLD ON!! The sun will rise and so will your heart. I'm with you every step of the way and living proof that it's sweeter than ever, when you've consciously been an active participant on your journey.

Ah things ain’t what they used to be, no no
Where did all the blue skies go?
Marvin Gaye’s timeless Mercy, Mercy Me lyrics gently ring true with many mothers. How quickly life can take us full of hope and big dreams and into a pool of desperation so deep, we find ourselves swimming to get out. Have you been a mother who thought your marriage would last, but it fell apart and now you are in a situation that you have not imagined? Do you find you are struggling, holding on to each day, worried what the next would bring? Do you miss the days that you were full of hope, aspiration and big dreams? Alexandra Wright knows your pain and she can tell you first hand, she has been there.
Poison is the wind that blows from the north and south and east
Woo mercy, mercy me, mercy father
As a single mom, Alexsandra had lost everything through court battles and child support challenges. Each day was filled with unfamiliar worries of getting her son the bare necessities. She worried about what tomorrow would bring. In quiet moments, she ruefully thought of her previous career as a high powered branding executive and slowly put together strategy to return. As she sat amongst other mothers, children, and families who had lost everything, she never lost hope that she would survive, but definitely wondered if she would ever LIVE again. More over….would she ever DREAM again? Once she pulled herself out of poverty and pulled away from “surviving” chronicled here, she began to breathe in life once again and he heart swirled with joy that that she too could and would dream again.
How much more abuse from man can she stand?
Oh, na na…
My sweet Lord… No
My Lord… My sweet Lord
Alexsandra attests "Once we can clear the dense fog of toxic people, recurring bad habits, relationships, and self doubt, we can truly manifest what we truly desire and the infinite abundance available to all of us. Whether it is our family, our faith, or our goals, we can focus on each piece of our destiny and bring them to life. It’s about clearing the path of negativity and focusing on what you truly want out of life. Essentially, what we have learned from her, is to visualize and conceptualize. Visualize the dream you want, take the concept, and produce simple action items. Tackle each one at a time and keep track of your victories! Make it happen! Channel your hope, faith and fortitude and DREAM again."
“The POWER to MANIFEST our hearts desire begins within our HEARTS. During the dark times, our heart merely beats to pump blood and keep us alive. As the dawn comes and the cloak of the night lifts, so will your heart. You WILL live again. You WILL dream again… I know… I’m living it!” ~ Alexsandra Wright.
Alexsandra now can say that she is building her dream of Motivating Other Mothers globally. Check with her website for updated manifestations, inspiration and wisdom. Most recently, she is working with Marvin Gaye III and his phenomenal wife Wendy on a new project called “Rise Up” that will inspire change for all of us. ‘Rise Up” teams up with many wonderful organizations and charities that will double the efforts to give back in every meaningful way. We all need a hand and this team, will be reaching around the world to help. Alexsandra wants you to turn yourself back to manifesting your dreams, so you can look back at your past life and say “Ah things ain’t what they used to be” and feel good about it.
“The opportunities, the people and the joy in my life have only grown by leaps and bounds. My career has flourished into more than I have dared to dream before and the freedom of letting go of the shackles from yesterday allow me to soar to new heights. I've opened offices in Beverly Hills and am working with a true Dream Team. Nixon is thriving and happy. I am LIVING! I am DREAMING! I am LOVING. I have never felt better.” Alexsandra Wright
As we say goodbye to what was 2014; the word that resonates within my spirit is HOPE.
There are many keys to opening up a new future, to saying goodbye to the past, and to inventing a brand-new you. Each moment has its own significance, but the most significant ingredient of all is hope. Throughout the year, we go through so many changes, so many versions of ourselves, both good and bad. The foundation of change and growth is hope. Hope for a new day, hope to heal the sick, hope for a new job, hope for new breakthroughs, hope for love, and hope for change.
I really had no idea that I would achieve as much as I did in 2014. Looking back, it was not just overcoming obvious challenges; it was overcoming the challenges of ego, humility, acceptance, and abandonment, while practicing the ultimate strength through adversity. It was a year of accepting many things that I could not control and ultimately realizing that all I could control were my reactions. This propelled me to stay positive through all the surreal twists and turns along the way and delivered me safely to 2015.
"My resume and my life had once again exploded reaching new heights. This time exponentially, with the mark of "service to others" deeply ingrained with permanent ink and emblazoned in my soul."
Today I can tell you this: Mission Accomplished. Through all of the challenges physically, mentally, and spiritually, I did not know that I would ever see the sun rise. It was like a long night that seemed to go on forever. As I leaned into the pain, the confusion, and the unknown, I learned to walk with grace through every moment.
The woman, the executive, the daughter, and the mother that entered 2014 had been re-shaped, re-molded, and ultimately re-birthed. There were unforeseen circumstances that I certainly did not think I had enough “bandwidth” to get through. In the darkest of moments, even when my faith ran low, I learned to celebrate hope. When my heart was breaking I leaned into hope. When things made no sense and were unjust, I leaned into hope. Through the laughter and the tears, I leaned into hope. I have developed many life tools to successfully navigate through the darkest of days, all of which I will share with you this year on MOTIVATINGOTHERMOTHERS.com, and on the road in cities around the world. The most important constant is HOPE! You will make it through all of your challenges. I just know you will. I believe in you and I have lots of extra hope safely tucked away in my toolbox if you need more! You CAN and you WILL make a stronger YOU. We lose people, we gain people, we lose jobs, we gain jobs; a cacophony of mysterious silk threads make the tapestry we call life. The most important “stitch” is hope.
You have to have hope. You have to give hope. You have to embrace help. You have to find hope when you can see no hope. You have to find a way where it seems there is no way. You have to make something out of nothing. What you will find is your omnipotent excellence. In hope you find your dreams, your aspirations, your love, and your victories.
"Anything you feel is missing can be found. Any needs you may have will be met. There is ultimate and unlimited love and abundance waiting for you. " AlexSandra Wright
As I embark on this next leg of my journey, I know that I am living in my passion and purpose. I embrace every moment. I am grateful for everyone and everything that appeared in my life that helped me get to this point. Now I am ready to change the world one heart at a time. One love at a time. One hope at a time. Thank you for supporting this movement. May you find hope in every experience that comes to you. May you bring help to everyone that meets your path. May you find forgiveness, light, and love to share with everyone on your journey. I have hope within me and that is why I am strong.
Until we meet friend, here is my gift to you.
KNAPSACK OF HOPE:
Find each of these items and wrap them in white silk. Tie your knapsack with a matching piece of silk in purple, pink, green, or blue, and tuck your precious bundle safely away, yet always close. When hope runs low, close your eyes, hold the knapsack close to your heart and BELIEVE.
TOOLS FOR YOUR JOURNEY:
One - STAR (gold or other) This will remind you to keep shining.
One - PAPER CLIP to help you hold things together.
One - ERASER to fix all the little mistakes.
One - LOCK to keep all your secrets safe.
One - PENNY so that you are never broke.
One - RUBBER BAND to help you stretch beyond your limits.
For many years before my mother passed away in 2010, I asked her to create a little book of all of her sayings and her favorites in life. Her name was Enid. She loved to laugh, cook, eat, travel, garden, and really participate in life. Above all, she loved to help other people. By profession, my mother was a child psychiatrist, by life’s passion, my mother was a hero to children everywhere.
There is no secret that I was a smidge rebellious. Not the kind that skipped school, or did drugs, but the kind that was always starting some ridiculous petition, or taking an inconvenient stand on some issue I didn’t agree with. My mother and I, both Aquarius often locked horns …literally! And by virtue of the meeting of two great minds, many colloquialisms were used and created.
The Golden Handcuff Project. My mother always told me that I must unlock the golden handcuffs to truly be free and successful. I went through many renditions of this in my head, and didn’t really understand why ANYONE would remove anything made of gold! It was only after she passed and I had my own child, that I began to understand that it could only be ME allowing myself to be “handcuffed” to things that made me comfortable. Well, complacent really. I was naturally good at many things, charismatic, have always had many friends and enjoyed success in many areas. In love, life, and career.
It wasn’t until my life was thrown under a microscope and I was globally discussed, that I realized … I could have it all AND change the world. Sometimes you need to be uncomfortable to affect change in yourself. I realized that all the career, financial, and personal successes, were wonderful, but they were LIMITED. Simply by me being comfortable.
Now as I rebuild, I am stronger and better than ever. I am a better mother, friend, sister, aunt, daughter, girlfriend, HUMAN BEING, than I ever was before. Some times you gotta lose it all to gain more than you ever dreamed of. I unlocked my Golden Handcuffs. My wish is for you to do the same!
Control. Alt. Delete. The power of the “reboot.” A simple thought, and a much more challenging action. Whether it is getting your three keys and fingers synched, or synchronizing your mind, body, and spirit… everyone needs a reboot sometimes.
My journey is not one that has gone unfollowed by any part of the world. It seems as though my life, my choices, and my child have all been under scrutiny and rapid fire for five years. It’s ok. My son Nixon is the light of my life. Becoming a mother was the single best choice ever. I have grown and changed in ways I never imagined, nor known I needed.
As my story exploded, I faced many questions and many difficult choices. The most important choice being, how to protect my son. It is not something I could hide from, nor something I wanted Nixon to ever feel ashamed of, I was called to live in my truth. I was a successful marketing executive; I had come from an phenomenal family with parents who stayed married for forty-seven years until the passing of my mother, and two super achieving brothers, one hailing from Harvard Med and the other from Columbia Law School. I had carved my niche and reached soaring heights in my career. All of a sudden, the tabloids, the Internet, even the news, were ablaze with the story of me filing a paternity suit. Well, is it not the right thing to do? Should we not provide our children and our next generation with the power of identity, and the strength of unconditional love? Should we not hold others accountable for their behavior? I most certainly was being held accountable for mine. I believe that the most important tool we have is security of identity. To know whom we are. To whom we belong, and what our destiny is to be. Therefore, amidst the fervor and the massive amount of coverage, I rebooted my soul. Control. Alt. Delete.
Surely there had to be a be a way to make sense out of this whirlwind. There had to be a way to give this unexpected and epic battle meaning, for my family, my son, the larger picture, and ultimately, humanity. What I read about me, my son, and the Knowles family was inhumane. I guess I had never really paid attention to the content of the comments that net-surfers make. Now, they were aimed at all of us. Vicious, disgusting, and unnecessary. I heard the loud cry of the damaged and forgotten striking out to be heard. Self righteous and judgmental, I realized I was as much a part of “them” as ‘they’ were a part of me.
Control. Alt. Delete. Not about ME. Reboot. It is about US. All of us. We are responsible for each other. Not each other’s actions, but the well being of US as a race. The human race.
I dove into case law. I scoured every nook and cranny to find people who could understand my need for my child to have an identity… a voice. There were many. I met mothers and fathers, veterans and civilians, children and adults, every race and every creed crying out for their voices to be head. I discovered that under the cloak of an educated, “well-rounded,” and very civilized upbringing, we, collectively, had left behind so many.
I read statistics of single mothers, of homelessness, poverty, and lack of education. I witnessed and lived the statistics in every state office and every day of family court, chronicled in depth by the press and the public. I was horrified at the state of so many people in our country, my breath stolen by the silence of desperation. My mission became clear. Speak up! Stand up! Be the change! I began to listen and really hear the people that were presenting precious time and wisdom to me as gifts. Spiritual food and strength. I cried with them, laughed with them, and hugged them. I gave away all that I had left … everything, to anyone who needed it. I donated time. I donated food. I donated my spirit to help uplift those that were uplifting me. The more I gave, the more there was to be given. I found that if I shifted my consciousness to be involved in making the world a better place for my son, that he would be rich with identity and pride. That I will have demonstrated through my actions my commitment to my fight for him and for all children lost in the cracks. I could turn the other cheek every time because the only way I could fail was to quit.
Five years of silence. Two years of court leading to trial, countless death threats, and Google alerts. The death of my mother, loss of friends, staggering betrayal, and a world that had seemingly turned its back on me, my son, and everything we were taught to hold dear resulted in clarity, beauty, and freedom. For you see, once I “rebooted” my soul, there was no fear, no failure, and no judgment. I lived my truth in Technicolor. I hid nothing, and never spoke against anyone. I immediately forgave, and pressed through an incredibly long night. When the sun rose, I realized that I had helped nearly 1000 women and children. The time I had spent studying case law and the endless hours wondering why our judicial system was failing us. The time spent reflecting on how one human being could turn his back on his own flesh and blood helped me rise! It gave me humility and perspective to genuinely help others and the empathy to identify with their struggles. I knew to move forward I had to keep giving back. With love and passion, I defined myself as a woman, as a warrior, and as a mother. Nixon’s mother. Enid’s daughter. Humanity’s friend. I could not be more proud to look at the women I stand with today. They are all warriors. They are all great mothers. They are all someone’s daughters. I will never stop. Titles and salaries had defined my corporate career. Tabloids and headlines were outwardly defining my personal life. My choice to bring a life into this world, had been inspected, judged, and ruled upon by the world at large. I let go! I poured into affecting positive change wherever I went. I smiled and pushed my chin up; I was not lost, I was not afraid, and I was more sure than ever that my spirit had been defined by the faces I saw smiling back at me and the sisterhood I had foraged with the forgotten and the cast-out. I will never stand down… and if I am ever afraid…
Control. Alt. Delete. Reboot my soul!
Motivation. It’s the perfect place to begin to manifest all your dreams. Before you begin your next perfect moment, I want you to understand that you already have it all! Right now … In this moment.
Sometimes it seems as though we “lose” something everyday. I lose my car keys and my iPhone a thousand times a day. Nixon looks at me, swoops a dramatic palm to his forehead and says, “Mommmyyyyyyyyyyy, where is your phone?” I feel frantic for a moment, mostly because I’m running late, and tearing through everything surrounding me. Cursing and blaming everyone and every thing I can think of. ANYONE! To jump to the end of the daily ridiculous shenanigans, I remember this small moment is a metaphor for living. The keys are in my bag, every time. Well, unless I’ve left them in the car. Hey, judge not friend, I remembered the kid and the dog.
My frazzled and accelerated life helps me to remember not to panic. An oxymoron I know. Here’s the thing. I have keys to my home. I have keys to my car. I have my son. We both have our sense of humor and our health. I have an incredible family and an electric existence. We have each other. I haven’t lost a thing. I already have it all.
When I decided to open my life to you, it was after 4 years of silence and judgment on a global scale. If you have ever chatted with me, you know that I always say, “Meh, I’m too stupid to be afraid, thats why I can always rise from any situation.” That’s only partly true. It’s true … I rise. It’s false that I’m not afraid. I feel fear all the time. If I didn’t feel my fear, I wouldn’t know how to be fearless. I choose to move without fear. Fear hinders the greatness that is already within me and within you. I will never stand down to fear. I will always choose hope.
I pushed through the ridicule, the pain, the betrayal, the loss of friends, family, and my comfortable identity. I challenged myself to tell my truth and to open my heart to the love that already existed but I was not choosing to recognize. I chose resilience. I chose love. I chose to be with you! I discovered what I had “lost” never really “was”, and I was inspired to acknowledge the abundance that exists in my life. I already have it all.
Friend, while we critique ourselves every day and find fault with everything about ourselves, we must realize that we are right where we are supposed to be and everything we need to fulfill our destiny is already within us. Pushing through the fear, I choose love over bitterness and despair. Being harsh or hyper-critical on oneself, creates inner anguish. We then communicate from a painful place. No need to do that to yourself. Change the paradigm and your inner dialogue to one of love.
To write about myself publicly or to connect with people around the world was terrifying. Yet, there you were. You greeted me with open hearts, open minds, and boundless love. You exist. You carry me through each day. I had to let go and open my heart, face my fear and stop believing there was something wrong with me. There is nothing wrong with me, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with you. I challenge you to look at yourself honestly and lovingly. See yourself the way I see you. See the perfect human YOU. The YOU that the universe sees. Love your self the way the universe loves you. Compassionately and infinitely. Constantly renewed. Constantly forgiving.
We want MORE. We want BETTER. We want THINGS. We want MONEY. We want LOVE. We want to be accepted, simply for the loving being we are. We already have what we need for a perfect life. Once you understand and embrace that, you will see the complete and perfect you I see. You will manifest infinitely as, you are living in the present with purity of intention and honesty. You will know to give more than you take. You’ll be surprised to all the ways love shows up. You’ll be surprised how quickly that love turns to opportunity for change. You’ll be surprised how quickly your shift in perspective allows you to access an infinite pool of resources to live your authentic, fulfilled life, and assist your dream quest. If self-improvement means there is something wrong with you, then take a deep breath and let the essence of your perfect being love your insecure self. You already have it all.
I’ve met so many wonderful people around the world that encourage me every day. People that understand loving me, means my child’s life is better, and they can then send me as a warrior for them into the world to affect change. One person I met was a bit nervous about sharing a picture of his or herself in self-realized fear that I may judge it to be ugly. Never. I receive all of the love you are generous enough to share and I see each person for whom they show up to be. Sending kind words, love, encouragement, and making an effort to support others, makes you nothing short of beautiful!
Open your heart to the love that exists, and see yourself as the complete, beautiful, loved, and perfectly flawed being you are. You cannot think your way through life or think your way through a situation. You must LIVE your way through life. What ever challenges come your way, know that you already have all the resources and support to get through it.
Step into your authentic self. Step into your excellence. Step into the love that is waiting for you. I am proud of you. I support you. I am here when you need me. Thank you for giving me the same. I receive all with open arms and return it with unconditional love. You already have it all!
by MCCMom Motivating Other Mothers in AlexSandra, Walk with me Tags: #alexsandrawright #empower #leadership #innerpeace, #family, #knowles, #letitgo, #letitgo #momsrule #motherandson #motherslove #friendship, #love #compassion #acceptance, #manifest, #mommy #Nixon #nixonday, #motivate, #motivatingothermoms, #NixonNow, #NixonsTheOne, #positivevibrations, #singlemoms
Friends, I’m so glad you decided to share this sentiment and this moment with me. I am ever so appreciative of all the support Nixon and I receive from around the globe and I never want to miss a positive note or let someone go un-thanked. I begin from a place of gratitude and love. Thank you!
That said, it isn’t always easy to stay in the present. My head gets clouded with thoughts of “what’s next…” and
“I should’ve…”. Each day as we work toward a more conscious self, we become more aware of the roads we have traveled, where we are, and of course, where we are going. I shake it off and remember that it is only this moment that counts, and my choice to love, and to give, are ever present, as the current moment is always … well … current.
Living in that realization, I know I can create a string of perfect moments, that together, in essence create a powerful and meaningful existence. An existence without fear or regret, an existence that constantly moves forward and actively participates in helping the greater good of me, my family and “us” as a collective. This is when I am at my best. It is when you are at your best as well. Don’t let darkness cloud the light that you already are. Focus on the positive messages consistently showing themselves to you. The energy of goodness is always around, the challenge is to constantly choose goodness.
Each day, as I give more of myself by living in my truth and supporting others (remember reciprocity is important), I am moved by the generosity and loving spirits that support me and give me the encouragement to let my voice be heard. From the effervescent Barry Jordan, Jr., who has penned fantastic children’s books “Grandma Can I Get A Dog” and “Mom! What’s That,” to my folks “across the pond” in the UK that stand strong with Nixon and I in the media. As I remain open, the more love envelops me. I mustn’t forget my Canadian family, I am so proud to have dual citizenship. Canadians are open and loyal. I find respite there and in the hearts of the people who live in my sister country.
It is that love and support that enables me to continue to reach out and help others. My challenges are far from over, and Nixon’s are just beginning. I repeat to myself over and over “To move forward, keep giving back”. I have bad days, I have sad days, there are days I just want to cry and ponder the past or wonder about the future. I know to be kind to myself, honoring my journey … honoring my spirit. I am doing the best I can and I am proud to be who I am. My son lives in a strange and alternate universe and my heart aches for him to have a normal existence, however, we all live a strange existence and we are all trying to find our place. We are all striving to find a place of comfort and acceptance within our day to day lives, which leads us to rue the past or ponder the future. No one person is any better nor different, than any other person. Some journeys are simply just more visible. Shedding fear and embracing courage, we can all affect change and make things better for those around us and ourselves at the same time. Accountability, compassion, and an open heart are the only components that are able to differentiate the outcomes
That is exactly why the present is a gift. It is given and renewed over and over. The present is the continuum that is everlasting and it is the only true space where we can love, create, sing, dance, manifest and meditate. It is the present that makes us ever powerful, it is the present that is already full of the electric energy lighting the path for us to see our way forward in the exact way we are meant to. The gift of “the present” cannot be re-gifted, nor recreated. It is something we must embrace now.
I am so proud of you and know you are loved. You are not called to be perfect, you are only called to “BE”. You are more than enough, you are powerful and strong, you are beautiful, and you are unique. There is no comparison, there is no grass that is greener. Whether you are looking back or looking forward, stop to unwrap the gift that is eternally given to you … the present.
