The 2018 Gratitude Jar Challenge

January 2nd, the day I open my 2017 gratitude jar. If anyone wants to begin this practice today, a New Year is always a great place to start! Writing it down-the physical record is important—don’t just do this exercise in your head. The things you list can be relatively small in importance (an unexpected call with someone you like, a great meal) or relatively large (We close on our new house!). The goal of the exercise is to remember a good event, experience, person, or thing in your life—then enjoy the good emotions that come with it. Are you in …

Heidi Klum as Jessica Rabbit 4 Halloween (her transformation video)

Heidi-Klum-Jessica-Rabbit

As a fashion illustrator, Jessica Rabbit was/is a huge inspiration on my work. Her proportions and the “Bob Mackie-Like” gown on the animated diva were sensational. As a Fashion designer, Project Runway is another big influence, to this day one of my favorite shows. So magic happens when you marry the two, Heidi Klum (wearing a dress made by Project Runway’s Christian Siriano) & the iconic Jessica Rabbit. Hands down and amazing, incredible transformation. I nominate Klum “Drag Race Royalty” for her Lip-Syncing. What do you think of the transformation?

“How heavy is this glass of water?”

glass-of water-blog

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”     Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If …

The Happiness Jar Challenge

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” ― Edith Lovejoy Pierce Well my dear friends, a NEW year has arrived! I believe last year was a year of transformation for many of us. We either made some changes in our lives, or changes were made for us by the universe. I universal forces (GOD) send us signals… giving signals like throwing small pebbles saying “Time to change”, ​ ​ then a small stone to reminds us …

A very powerful Gratitude Practice

gratitude

“If the only prayer you say in your life is ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” – Meister Eckhart It is that time of the year again, a time when we reflect and give thanks! This has been a roller-coaster year for me, but I’m feeling so grateful for the many experiences and opportunities of growth that I’ve lived on this 2014. During the ups & Downs I always ask: “What’s good about this?”, “What can I learn from this?”, and “How can I benefit from this?” One of the things that I use to be so good at was keeping a …

OPRAH

The ONLY courage you ever need is the courage to live the life of your dreams. – Oprah I have been a fan of Oprah for a long time; but a fan of Iyanla Vanzant for even longer! A while ago I saw that Oprah Winfrey’s Life You Want Tour was coming to Miami and I really wanted to go, but LIFE got in the way of my finances, and I couldn’t manage the ticket price. However, I put the intention out into the universe… “If I’m suppose to be at this event… I will” then, I forgot all about …
