Secret Agent Andy


This story is about a woman who waited, wondered, hoped and prayed that her heavenly, hunky, perfect soul mate would mysteriously apparate into her life, fill her hungry void with excitement, joy and love, then carry her off to an ever-after real life land of bliss – tropical, preferably! But instead, she kept attracting different men wearing the same issues, who left her disappointed and in despair of ever fulfilling her deepest heart-felt desires. 

That woman was me.   The best stories are the ones that come from our deepest pain and take us on a journey through winding paths, treacherous cliffs and deep dark secrets . . . Where they end up is anyone’s guess.

Override Your Fear of Writing



Today’s episode is about overriding your fear of writing so you can have the courage and the authenticity to speak your truth through the stories you tell your grandkids. As baby boomers we want our grandkids to think of us as the cool world changers that we know ourselves to be, but the millennials and GenXers say baby boomers ruined the world for them. They need to know our side of the story.  And they need to hear it in a way that opens their hearts and their minds in order to bridge the generation gap. We can do it.  We’ve gained wisdom and knowledge by meeting life’s challenges. The only thing that appears to be standing in the way is fear. When fear is present, we can achieve nothing. Learn how to override your fear of telling your story.

Purpose, Value & Storytelling

Purpose
My grandson is growing up in a world where the arts have been removed from schools, handwriting isn’t taught anymore, and cell phones have become part of a child’s anatomy. He has no idea what it was like for me growing up in Motown during an era of racial riots, political assassinations, the British Invasion, Transcendental Meditation, Viet Nam war, Watergate, and Peter Max, whose art clearly expressed the psychedelic craziness of a history wrought with turbulent change. These experiences helped shape who I am today, but my grandson won’t know unless I tell him my stories.

A business from my heart to your heart


We all want our lives to have a purpose. We want to feel valuable, like we matter. And we want to belong by being part of something. Otherwise we feel like butterflies banging up against a glass door. I’ve felt that way more times than I care to acknowledge because 1, 2, or 3 of those qualities were missing from my life.
 
My kids grew up, moved out and moved on, and as much as I like to deny it, it left a gap in my heart and soul that I had to find a way to fill. My identity was ‘mom’. When that no longer seemed relevant, I was nothing. You’ve probably felt something similar in regards to a job or a relationship. Sure, it leaves us with LOTS of free time to travel, have the bathroom to ourselves, and buy more toys. But when the trip is over and the thrill of the toy wears off, all we have left is ourselves. And sometimes that doesn’t seem enough.
As baby boomers we have lived through massive world changes … probably more than any other generation throughout history. We learned a LOT. We overcame challenges and grew as individuals in so many ways. But what good is it if we can’t share our gifts of wisdom and knowledge with others?

The Man on the Subway





Sometimes we look at people and only see the ‘bad’ part….the part that gets us angry and causes us to point fingers and justify our attitudes and actions because we don’t agree with their methods or lifestyle. If we could all stop blaming, judging and complaining for just 7 days the results we see in our physical reality would be so much different. The whole world doesn’t need to change in order for your life to be happier or different; it only takes you. Jesus told parables to get people to look inside their own hearts before pointing fingers at someone else's wrong doings.

Raising Self-Esteem: Strategies #8, 9 and 10

These 3 strategies all fall into the same categories so I've combined them in one post.

MAINTAIN A HEALTHY DIET

Sounds simple enough, but few of us ever really know how the substances we put into our mouths affect our entire body, mind and spirit. And our body, mind and spirit affects everyone around us. Foods affect our moods, the way we smell and most importantly, the way we feel about ourselves.

Thursday, February 4, 2010

Strategy #7: Eliminate Labels and Judgments

We tend to label everything and everyone then “judge” them into groups, subgroups, classes and functions – including ourselves. These labels have a powerful impact on our perception of self because we “live” according to the judgments we’ve made about others and ourselves. All judgments do damage to our self-esteem whether they appear to be positive or negative. Seemingly positive judgments like, “I’m a winner,” sets us up for failure if we don’t meet the expectations we created for ourselves. And, “I’m a loser,” is failure from the get-go.

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

Strategy #6: Change Your Story

The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, others and life are generated from reactions we create inside ourselves in response to our beliefs about the world around us. Our thoughts become behaviors because we choose actions according to the beliefs we hold as being true about our “reality”. By choosing how to perceive ourselves, we can either intend, believe and behave our way to high self-worth or low self-esteem.

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Strategy #5: Choose to Be HAPPY!

It’s that simple. When you consciously and consistently choose your state of being by making a firm decision to be happy, your spirit aligns with your intentions to bring you internal and external experiences that honor your heart-felt desires. Then it’s just a matter of acting on the opportunities being presented to you. Your physical health will improve, your emotional levels will lift and life will be more fun and effortless. It’s infinitely easier to be positive and happy than it is to be negative, depressed and sad.

Friday, January 29, 2010

Strategy #4: Love Yourself & Your Life Exactly as it is Right Now

There is nothing so detrimental to our health and sense of self than to forever be living in the past or the future; clinging to what is gone or wishing for what is yet to come. It dissipates our vital life force energy and takes us out of the NOW. This very moment holds the point of power - not the past and not the future. NOW!

Monday, January 25, 2010

Stragegy #3: Silence Negative Self-Talk

Internal dialogue is one very powerful factor that shapes our self-concepts because it’s a continuous conversation we have with ourselves about everything that happens to us, about us, and surrounding us. This dialogue is on-going, happens in real-time and provokes a measurable physiological change in the body.

Friday, January 22, 2010

Strategy #2: Notice Your Thoughts, Feelings and Actions

Self-esteem is more than just feeling good; it's about noticing when you feel good and when you don't. That might sound elementary, but so many of us go through our days under mild to medium to intense amounts of stress, we take it for granted that this is our normal "feel good" state of being. It's not! It's an unhealthy state of disharmony, imbalance and weakness that we've become accustomed to. Anything that lowers our mental, emotional, spiritual or physical well-being also lowers our sense of Self and self-worth.

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Love and Ego

Love has no ego. PERIOD! That's all there is to it.

But what is ego? Everyone defines it differently. My definition is anything that makes you feel less than a fully enlightened Being. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is the only one I know who has no ego and beams love in every moment. That's why I have his videos on my page. When I am confronted by challenges and confused about how to respond, I think of Sri Sri and ask myself if I am acting out of love or ego. Then I gauge my thoughts, words and actions according to his wisdom that resonates with my own heart.

Strategy #1: Be True To Yourself

24 STRATEGIES TO DRAMATICALLY INCREASE SELF-ESTEEM

Strategy #1

Most of the issues of integrity we face are not big issues, they are usually small ones. Yet, the accumulated weight of our choices has an impact on our sense of self. When we act in contradiction to moral values held by someone else, we may or may not be “wrong” but we cannot fault ourselves and live in guilt, shame and blame

Increase Your Chances for LOVE on Valentine's Day

Our only mission in life is to make ourselves happy by giving, receiving and being love. The way to accomplish this is by taking actions that support a strong core self-image.

When we feel unloved, unworthy, flawed or fearful it affects our moods and our relationships. We distance ourselves from others in an effort to protect ourselves from getting hurt,
