Time will tell,

time will heal,

it just takes time…

All the cliches 

are true

for a reason…

But nothing changes 

the now,

the pain of now,

the disillusionment 

or the heartbreak

of now…

So cry your tears

of anger, hurt

and disappointment…

Shake your fist

at the circumstances

that have

taken you down…

Stagger to your feet,

jut out your chin

and put fear into that very thing

that tried to put 

fear into you…

All you have to do is rise.

One. More. Time.

The Cure


It’s not insanity

to use the healing of

your wounds

to refresh your soul.

You have every right,

no~an obligation

to yourself

to take everything

in your heart

and hold it close

as you fling all you are

into the unknown,

throwing your arms open,

defiantly sharing your light

ready or not.

It matters not at all

that your knees knock

and your hands


What matters

more than anything

is the courage it takes

to try.


Rest quietly for a moment

in the power of your potential…

Feel the irresistible

tug of your heart as it trembles

with the desire

to be set free…

Listen to the whispers

of the thoughts no longer willing

to be brushed aside

or trivialized…

Soul tears fill your eyes

from reaching into

the City of Jewels

where your dreams have waited…

For this exact moment

in time,

when you would find

your courage


release your Fire.


If you will stand still

just for this moment

and ask yourself

‘Who am I?’

The answer you seek

shows itself like the dawn

as you breathe in life

and exhale possibilities.

Your future is waiting

for you to create it…

Faith is the jeweled path

you walk upon

as your dreams

light up the sky above you.

There is no lack,

no defeat in this moment,

everything you desire

is in your soul waiting

to be set free.

You’ve chased the sun,

wished on stars

and felt the pull of the moon.

Be still. Inhale. 

Put both hands on your heart…

Open your eyes.

Live the answer…


the moment

you decide to change,

everything inside

shifts to a new reality~

freshly created

from the thought itself,

through your heart

and out

into your new world…

in one instant

your future transforms

turning your dream

into an intention

that in the moments after

will manifest itself

in the choices and actions

that reinvent 

who you’ve been until now…

in one heartbeat,

one thought,

in the quietest whisper

of your never forgotten dream,

you finally realize…

the moment 

you decide to change 

your legacy

it is so.


You are worth everything

you give so generously to others.

To believe differently

is to undermine

the value of all of us…

You are worth

every effort to succeed,

every moment 

of healing solitude…

With each kindness

you give to yourself

you remind us

that we are worth the same.

You are deserving 

of receiving the love

you give so easily,

 your stubbornly and persistently

soft heart

requires the boundaries

you must set

to keep yourself whole

and illuminated.

You are worth living for.

That is reason enough

to stay.


Acts of Valor

Call your heart back

into you

and let it grieve,

rest, recover.

Treat yourself gently

as you would a warrior

of great valor

struck down in battle.

Those never wounded

haven’t lived,

hearts never broken

haven’t loved,

and you have done both.

Hold your heart

with awe and compassion;

accept them both 

for yourself.

Fill the seams, the jagged edges

with the gold of

wisdom through lessons

earned and learned.

Piece together

with loving hands

the part of you that cannot be


and when you are whole

and another is worthy,

courageously give again, love again

and remain



Fear Nothing

You are the catalyst 

of your own transformation…

Once moving too fast

to feel your heart,

see your dreams

or know your worth,

you simply stopped

without apology.

You began to listen

to yourself

instead of mimicking

the world around you.

You found that, for you

moving through obstacles

made more sense

than going over them.

You had to experience

to get the lesson,

so you did.

Welcome to the point

of it all.

Celebrate that now you stand

at the center

of any direction you choose…

And you fear

none of them…


Let not your light dim

although it chases


in the hearts

of others…

Let the music

within you play on,

even when it seems wasted

on deafened ears…

Let your eyes see color,

beauty and miracles

when the world 

seems to be blind…

And then,

in its darkest hour,

let your soul reach out

and set your dreams alight

as the healing

of your inspiration

brings a deadened world

to life.
