Allowing Yourself the Freedom to Shine

When I think about what it means to be a confident person, the first images conjured up by my mind are of a stage; people performing on a stage, to be exact. Actors, singers, motivational speakers, people whom I have often envied for their confidence. The confidence required to face hundreds, maybe even thousands of […]

An Infinite Work of Art – You

Just recently I read a quote, author unknown, which really started me thinking. Don’t you just love such moments, when a whole new chapter of your mind opens itself up to the possibilities of what was, what is, and what is to become of you? “If you knew me in the past, please do not […]

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. ~ Marcel Proust We all know the old saying, “Home is where the heart is”, but what is one to do when faced with the dilemma of realising that one’s heart belongs in more than one home? Let me […]

“You’ve changed”. If I had a dollar for every time I’ve had that statement said to me during the last seventeen years, I’d be rich. The changes began when I lost my mother, the same day that I realised it was time for me to grow up. I was a married woman at the time […]

Profound Questions

For as long as I can remember, as the end of each year approaches, I find myself reflecting on the year that is almost over. How did I spend the year? What were the high points throughout the past months? Were the low point’s events which could have been played down, had I reacted differently […]

“If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it is yours. If it doesn’t, it never was”. ~Anonymous. Whenever I hear the word courage mentioned, without fail I instantly remember the cowardly lion from The Wizard of Oz, who wished to travel to the Land of Oz to meet the wizard, as […]

Serendipities of Survival

All living beings on earth need to breath for survival. I know…I know, that is such an obvious statement, but there is so much more to breathing. Breathing deeply increases the oxygen in the body, which in turn increases your metabolism. By consciously taking deep breaths, not only do you calm the body and mind, […]

Getting “Write” Down to Action

August 16, 2010 by  
Filed under Freedom Space

Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome. ~ Arthur Ashe Where to begin? But then again, where to end? Do definitions of the beginning and ending of action categorically exist? Personally, I don’t believe they do. Although the word “action” immediately conjures images in my brain […]

Happiness is a Road Called Freedom

Today I embark upon a whole new journey. I’m unsure yet as to exactly where my journey will take me, although the destination isn’t important. Perhaps I won’t ever reach a final destination, and that’s okay. Enjoying the journey each step of the way is my aim. The concept of this journey began three months […]
