Nine years ago you came into my life and forever changed everything about it. You’ve made me a better person, and are the motivation for everything I have or ever will do.

You are the most amazing little human being. Your kind, thoughtful, loving have the biggest most protective heart of anyone I’ve ever know.

Your growing into such an amazing young man. Everyday you make me laugh and smile and there is no way I could ever repay you for all the love you bring to me. I love you more than any words could ever say. I’m more proud of you for all you’ve endured then words can express.

You ARE AMAZING.

I love you Kanen Rossi,
Love,
Mama

A Love Letter to You.

I wanted to write a love letter to you my readers….

writing letters

I’ve always written this blog pretty exclusively for my own personal therapy, the fact that anyone reads it let alone relates and is moved by it is some amazing blessing beyond what I can understand.Today like so many others you have taught me a huge lesson. I got a beautiful comment on one of my posts, Letting Go which I read this morning and it stuck with me all day. The reasons it was so profound are hard to articulate, but it reminded me of who I really am and what my purpose is. It was the answer I had been looking for that I didn’t want to find, but exactly what I needed to hear. It reminded me to stay true to myself and that my experiences are not just my own. That each decision we make every day affects the people around us in ways we can’t possibly know or fully understand.

When you think no one is watching you, looking at you to be their example remember there is always someone in your circle or beyond that looks to you for something.
Be the example.
Rise above the temptation to be less than what you’re capable of.
We honestly never know what impact we make.

That one single comment this morning made a life changing difference for me today, something I’m sure my reader had no idea it would do. I’ve said it before and I’ll always say it, I learn so much everyday from each of you, thank you so much for letting me ramble and then giving me feedback, for writing, messaging, Facebooking and commenting. I read every single one and each of you has made me into a stronger more determined women then I even knew was here.

I love you!

Thank you and keep it coming. Light-bulb moments happening here on the daily!

And the Moon Said….

The funny thing about asking a question of the Moon is that sometimes it responds. As I wrapped up my post last night A Letter to the Moon, I got a reply in the form of a calming, seemingly “random” text. It reminded me to not always wish for, or invent the end before I’ve had the beginning (yes this was an actual text AFTER I had basically just written those words…the Moon is magic!).

Then the light started to slowly go on for me….Tonight. (I can be a little slow sometimes).

Don’t always ask to skip the beautiful parts just so you can have the perceived inevitable hurt sooner.
Don’t always assume that there will be a bitter unavoidable end.

And for the love of god women, enjoy the ride from point A to point B regardless of what that might be.

There is a huge part of me that has the instant reaction of “duhhhhh you KNOW this stuff!! it’s called the Law of Attraction! If you think it will implode in a blaze of mundane then guess what you get what you order.” I do know this. But god it’s easy to have it slip, in various areas of your life, especially the place where you are most vulnerable and afraid.

I was able to be still and listen to the feedback. I realized that this pattern I had so greatly perfected to the point I wasn’t even able to spot it and correct it had been standing in the way of my true joy for a long time. I draw or attract the person into my life, am given just what I’ve asked for but then when left to me to take it from there I throw darts at it until it deflates like a helium balloon. It’s what I do when happiness is right there, I try to destroy it’s potential before it can take me off into the shark infested surf at sunset.

Maybe I should wise-up and listen to what I know to be true; that just because there is a possibility of sharks being in that water, doesn’t mean there’s not an equal chance it will be filled with Dolphins instead… and lets face it I love Dolphins. I just need to believe and get back in the water. Three and a half years is long enough to have been out on this damn island alone.

Thanks Moon, your the BEST!
Love Me

A Letter to the Moon.

letter to the moom
Dear Moon….

 

I know you can see the big picture, when all I see is a thumbnail.
So I ask you tonight, why?
What is the purpose for giving me exactly what I dream of and wish-upon-a-star for but yet insure that I’m unable to actually have it?
Can you give me a fast forward version of this story? A cut to the damn chase already? A little peek into the lesson so I can skip this part, the part that is frustrated, broken and sad?
I want to throw snow balls at you.
To shake my fist in your direction.
To curse at you like a sailor.

I want to know why my perfect prize is here but hidden in a glass box out of reach.

I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure I deserve this.
Pretty sure I’ve worked my ass off for it!
Fought through the fire and all the crap to get here.
As a matter of fact I know I deserve this prize.
I worked.
I’ve waited.
I WANT it.
Give it to me! 
Don’t tease me.
Don’t you daaaarrrreeee tease me.
I will get a damn latter and climb up there and pull you outa the sky with my own two hands!
Don’t think I wont.
I know you bring me lessons, I know you make me stronger.
And wiser.
I know I will get my prize in the end…
but for real, Dear Moon…can I just have this one tonight?
yelling at the moon
Yelling at the Moon…

2012 Rose Bowl Champs, My Oregon Ducks Teach a Lesson.

2012 Champion Derrick Malone Jr.

So those of you who know me, personally or via Facebook or Twitter know what a crazy Oregon Duck fan I am, and if you follow collage sports at all then you may of heard that last night we WON THE ROSE BOWL!!!

Ok ok, I wont post a sports review of the Rose Bowl…to me there was something almost more interesting then just the game going on behind the scenes. Something that I’ve been studying the past year or so in working with athletes, I got to see first hand and it was amazing.

I have believed for a while now that the mindset of an athlete is very unique from the average person, but similar to other athletes and successful people, and is one that breaks down simply enough that the average person can follow the formula to find success. This may or may not be revolutionary, I have no clue. But for me it is, it has been the key to help me unlock The Law of Attraction in a very simple and down to earth way. A way that I could not find in other teachings or opinions. So I have set out to apply my own little concoction of The Law of Attraction Urban Style, influenced by the athletes I know and have worked with.

Our lightening fast #6 DeAnthony Thomas

It’s so simple, that’s why I love it so much. 

1. The have a dream. A detailed vision of what their success will look and feel like, to the point that they taste it every day. The moment they walk on the field at the bowl game ect..

2. They have unwavering faith and total confidence in the outcome. They believe completely that if they follow the formula of working and training hard, rising to challenges and over coming obstacles that the outcome will be there. They work everyday with that end goal in mind.

3. They feed themselves the story of their imagined success over and over to a point where it’s absolutely what they believe. When they have a bad day/game they go back and work harder, they don’t sit down and destroy themselves with negative self talk, they do the opposite.

4. They LIVE it. The above formula results in the moment they have waited for, the one where they have turned the imagined into their reality.

That’s really it. They Dream it, Believe it, Hustle for it, then Live it.
It’s so absolute, no room for what if, or maybe or I’m not good enough. It just is what it is. And I love that. If you take that same formula, you can apply it to every aspect of your life, but especially success and you will get the same results.

So yesterday it was kinda awesome to see my friends who play for the Oregon team posting on facebook or texting the exact things that I’ve been trying to convey on my blog the last year or so, to see it live was amazing. It’s proof to me that though these young guys have probably no idea what The Law of Attraction is or what my theory’s are on it, they are living it and proving to me and anyone else who’s paying attention that the formula is universal and can be adapted by anyone. It’s the formula I’ve used to go from a broke stay at home mom with nothing, to a software consulting executive living my imagined life. It really is simple, and achievable for anyone.

Here are just a few of the amazing Facebook status updates and Tweets from some of the players, I wont name them but you can look at my twitter for retweets to see some of them.

Growing
up, I remember watching the Rose Bowl parade with my grandma and
brother.. Then watch the game with my friends, admiring the people on
the field. Hard Work pays off, dreams come true. Go Ducks!”Derrick Malone Jr. Tweeted before the game.
(this is The Law of Attraction at it’s best!)

“I been waiting my whole life for this to happen and its real!!!” Defense back -right after the game.

Ever since I was little I’ve always had that hunger to be the GREATEST; now that I got that go-ahead from the man upstairs its time to get after I heal up. Spring Ball you will see a bigger , stronger, faster camp; complete football player” -Oregon wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei posted after the game. (already looking a head to the next challenge, and willing to keep working for the next dream… I love this!)


“I have no words for this moment” Kenjon Barner tweeted.


Enough said….

May there be many moments you remember to pinch yourself.
May you be grateful for EVERY experience… Learn from the bad ones, and multiply the good. 
May 2012 teach you to be kind, forgiving, loving, patient and grateful.
May it show you that life is beautiful and you are a beautiful contribution to us all.
May it teach you to be kind to yourself. 
My wish for you in 2012 is that you BELIEVE all the above and more is possible for you in this new year.
