You Can Call Me Georgia – Positivity Article

Something magical happens when you stop caring about what others think of you. You start to taste a level of freedom that questions all of your past decisions. It changes your interactions with people. Your conversations with your boss. Your friends. The whole ecosystem around you. The other day, I met someone ‘important.’  Semi famous. He was so used to people being excited around him. Half way through my conversation I noticed that he was nervous. And I noticed something about…

Awake, fresh eyes crack. It hurts for just a second as dawn’s light washes me. After a long, walking sleep, I’m relieved to see the sun again. “Felt like night forever,” I say to her with a bittersweet mix of thanks and regret. “Thank you for waking me.” The monsters lurking in my room transform before me. They were but a coat flung carelessly over a chair. A house plant. A stack of magazines. It all seemed so real. Yesterday’s…

If You Are Willing to Look Deeper into Your Shadow Side and Judgments, Read on… – Positivity Article

I just returned from a comtemplative, educational, mystical, mediatative, group spiritual experience. It was lovely. I learned so much about myself. I like to dig deeper into what I like, what I do not like and I have made it a practice to learn about myself through other people. The way that I live my life is that the people that drive me nuts are my greatest teachers. They are what I call an “opportunity” for me to feel more inner…

Time is no less than a gift for us all, yet if you ask people around you about their opinion of time, you will hear them say that they have less time than they need.

How Stress Can Actually Improve the Quality of Your Life – Personal Development Article

When we want something, we generally imagine the form it will take when it manifests. If we’re not careful, however, we can find ourselves attached more to the imagined form than the actual desired outcome. This is like placing an online order and expecting it to come in a blue box shipped by UPS. If we then receive a red box delivered by FedEx, we might not realize that it’s what we ordered, and never even open it! For example,…

The Three Stages of Life — Purpose Fairy

There is one life. However, there are many philosophies and spiritual studies that divide life into many stages. Obviously, we can divide life based on physical stages like a new-born, adolescent, adult and so on. But here I am trying to dissect life, based on the ego or mind, so to speak.

Crossing the River

I’ve been having some really powerful dreams lately – the kind of dreams that stay with you long after you’ve woken up, the kind of dreams that carry a message with them that you so desperately need to hear (and embody). Those kinds of dreams. One of them took place on a river. I stood on one side of it, wanting to get to the other side. The current looked pretty still in parts and pretty strong in others. And…
