How To Stay Motivated By Inspiration

Photo by: Matthew WiebeMy sister-in-law recently told me I’m one of the most “highly consciously aware” people she knows. I’m just glad she doesn’t see me as a guru wrapped in garb who meditates all day. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but she knows I’m simply an idealist who strongly believes in a healthier lifestyle. I also believe in a healthier love you can’t find from this world alone.

Where most people want a degree and a job, I want adventure. Lord willing, I’ll live out my calling to the very best of my ability until I’m called home. I also work my tail off doing what I’m called, led or prompted to say or do on a daily basis. Sometimes its easy, sometimes its very hard and sometimes its even life threatening. What I know though, is that its absolutely the way I want to live until the end. 

For those who enjoy living in a tidy home, without interruption or fear, this must seem like insanity. I get it. I live like that too when I’m focused on my writing (like today) and I’m sitting behind my computer so I can get my next article written or next book published.

Since scripture is my main mentor and guide, I want to unify in love, to exchange life experiences and to encourage freedom. I like living my life this way because it helps people believe that anything is possible. Its like taking an old broken down home and rehabbing it to make it beautiful again. I absolutely LOVE seeing the before and after picture of anything, but especially the human spirit.

Get Out Of Your Dirty Diaper By Choosing FREEDOM

Baby with diapers pretending to be a birdI cannot tell you how fantastic it is to work with people who want to get OUT of their dirty diapers and choose to be free.

 
Most people are comfortable sitting in their “mess” because they don’t know how it feels to be free of it, free to create a better life, free to fly in the open fields of life. 
 
Maybe you’ve felt like time is standing still for you. Its as if there is nothing good is coming your way and hasn’t for a long time. Maybe your marriage is in a rut or your parenting struggles or the job you have gives you little to write home about.

Is Your Marriage Strong Enough To Succeed?

ResizedShortly after doing a soft launch for my latest book, Love Differently – Stay MarriedLove Differently – Stay Married, I received numerous emails and phone calls from entrepreneurs who wanted the book.  One such email came from a young woman who said, “I’m ready to throw in the towel (this was a newly wed) and pour myself back into my work unless your book helps us make it work.”

According to her new husband, this entrepreneur never stopped pouring herself into her work. He did have an expectation for her though and that was to find the right balance between being a wife, and being with her work. If she couldn’t do it, then he wanted her to close her company.
