The support from the Own Community, The Super Soul Sunday Ambassadors and followers have helped keep this book in the public eye long after publication.  We want to express our deepest… Read More

Working It

SAME OLE – SAME OLE?

SAME OLE – SAME OLE?

Repeating old patterns is one of the most common problems we run into.  Be it substance abuse, poor food choices, or constantly finding ourselves in negative or unhappy personal relationships.  I know for a long time every boyfriend I had felt like the same person in a different body. I always had the same complaints. How was this possible? Was I picking them or were they picking me?  Did I subconsciously repeat patterns trying to fix a broken past or… Read More

THE YEAR WE LEAVE BEHIND

THE YEAR WE LEAVE BEHIND

That time of year,  we nudge one year out the door and invite another one in.  While I like to look ahead and set up a plan of action for what I want to accomplish in the new year, I also like to look back and see how I did in the year that is making its exit. The year of 2015 was about furthering the message of Gratitude and Trust.  When the book came out I told myself and Paul,… Read More

Time

Time is the most valuable coin in your life. You and you alone will determine how that coin will be spent. Be careful that you do not let other people spend it for you.
