Life has a funny way of showing up when we least expect it. This past weekend was one filled with fun, laughter and joy. We spent it at Lake Junaluska with my husband, his siblings and their families. We all lodged in this huge, old Victorian style house. Can you imagine 8 siblings, their spouses, kids and grandkids altogether for an entire weekend and no drama? This is our 3rd year doing this weekend trip and I loved every moment of it. When I arrived home on Sunday, I ended up in the emergency room for 3.5 hours.
I discovered that I had the “Shingles.” As you know, the shingles is very painful. But here’s the catcher. I have absolutely NO PAIN! My 80 year old mom just recovered from the shingles and I watched, as I cared for her, suffer with such pain. When I realized that I had the shingles, I spoke to my body that it would not experience any pain. And it hasn’t.
I’m on medication and I was given some unnecessary pain meds as well. As I was meditating and praying, I was reminded that when we walk in pure, wide open, unconditional love, it can transcend time and space as we know it. It creates a miraculous life. I spend my days teaching others the POWER of LOVE. And Power is what Love is.
I heard someone once say, “Miracles ride in on the wings of LOVE.” Everyday that I awaken, my prayer is that I become a full expression of love in the earth. I will not lie to you and say that there aren’t times that I want to do anything but love. Because there are those times. And I sometimes I do forget who I am. It’s in those moments that we have others around us to remind us of who we are and we simply REUNIFY with LOVE.
My husband and I were having a conversation the other day and I said to him, “People think I live a charmed life.” He looked at me and replied, “You do live a charmed life.” As he began to share with me all of the wonderful things about my life, I had to agree with him.
I didn’t say that my life was perfect or without issues and challenges. Because it is. But it is also filled with miracles. I have learned how to navigate my life towards truth. The truth of who I am and the truth of what my life is suppose to be. It’s the Love Lifestyle. Living the Love Lifestyle will create a life filled with miracles…a charmed life.
I want to encourage you today to make a quality to decision to Live Love as a Lifestyle. It will create for you a life beyond anything you can imagine. That is a promise.
Remember, Live authentically, laugh everyday and embrace love as a lifestyle. Because success in life, really does begin with love.
Have a rich and love filled day.

Women often come to me and say that they are overwhelmed. Sure as women we have our plates full most of the time. But it’s very important that we don’t always confused being stretched with being stressed. Because there is a difference. Watch the video below as I share this week’s Love Lifestyle Moment of Inspiration…Stressed vs Stretched.
Many people are searching for shortcuts to success. They believe the hype by all of the gurus that tell them if they do their 3 step magic formula that success will happen. I want to share with you why there are no short cuts to success.

I often hear women say, “a good man is hard to find.” They also go on to say that it’s hard to find a man who’s comfortable with a powerful and successful woman. Some women tend to believe that men are often intimidated by their success. While I can perhaps understand this theory, I can’t say that I totally agree with it.
First of all, there are very few things that a man is afraid of and a woman is typically not one of them. There are numerous of successful and powerful women who are experiencing beautiful and loving relationships with men who adore, admire and love them. And that’s because these women have discovered the hidden secret power to making love work.
As I began to explore a little deeper into this topic, I discovered several reasons why so many powerful and successful women are having a difficult time in finding and sustaining a harmonious relationship with a good man. But today, I will explore only one of them.
Over the last forty plus years, women have made great strides in the workplace and in our careers. We’ve experienced as much success as our male counterparts and in some cases we’ve even surpassed them. Of course we must celebrate these great achievements.
But somewhere during this expansion we have lost our sense of who we really are as women. We changed our clothes to imitate men in our tailored blue and black suits. We deepened our voices and tensed our faces so that we could be taken more seriously in meetings. We worked long tiring hours trying to prove ourselves and keep up the masculine pace. We wanted to be treated like one of the boys and when this didn’t happened, we often cried discrimination…and in many cases, we were right to do so.
We not only competed with the men, we became them. And while yes, we became what the world would deem as successful and powerful, yet for many of us, it was achieved at a great cost. In the midst of climbing the success ladder, we gave up who we really were… our true feminine powerful selves.
We took on the energetic vibration of men. Yet, women were never designed to digest testosterone. We were tricked into believing that we had to do so.
Therefore, when a “good man” did show up in our lives and he didn’t stay very long, we automatically assumed that he was intimidated by our success. But in reality, he came looking for a woman (feminine energy) and what he found was himself (masculine energy), disguised as a woman.
I do believe there maybe times when women need move into our masculine side in the workplace, yet it’s important to remember that only your feminine energy is the power that will attract and keep a “good man.” It’s not your masculine, material power or success that a good man is seeking, it’s the true power of the feminine energy that he so desires and needs. Your masculine side has no place in your relationships.
As a side note, it’s also important to understand that your designer low cut tops, short sexy skirts and red bottom shoes will not get you exactly what you are seeking either. Nor does dimming down and playing the victim or the damsel in distress. If these things worked, millions of successful enterprising women wouldn’t still be lonely. This is not actualizing the authentic feminine power, it’s manipulation and trickery.
Internally is where your power resides. Your true feminine power lies deep within and is expressed from a space of pure love and acceptance of yourself first. It’s about tapping into the flow of the truest, deepest feminine energy that radiates beneath the surface. It’s that magnetic power that would make you attractive no matter what size you are, your hair color or your age. Who we are as women does not make us weak, but very powerful. This power does not intimidate…it‘s the kind of power that every baby, every man, every human being longs for.
Finding a good man is more about “being” than it is about “doing.” The masculine is active, the feminine is passive, the masculine is dynamic, and the feminine is magnetic. The masculine does while the feminine IS. We want a good man, but we will never have one until we recognize and become the feminine women we were created to be.
We can have success in the bedroom and the boardroom. But only when we recognize and accept that our real worth and our real power is not external but internal. A good man is not hard to find…but in many cases…a real woman can be.
