A quote from Mitch Albom

Sometimes I stumble around on the internet, looking for love in all the wrong places. lol.    Seriously though, I scan facebook and then I move along to pinterest, oprah.com,  browse on flipboard or houzz.  Nope, Nope, Nope, Nope.  Not what I'm looking for.  What am I looking for?  Other than the obvious need to cure my boredom some nights, I'm looking to be inspired, a new idea that turns on a lightbulb and creates an aha! moment inside of me.  I'm always looking to be inspired to live my best life possible because its a journey towards awakening. I was excited when I came across this quote from *Mitch Albom tonight as I was stumbling around in all the wrong places and it resonated immediately so I just knew it was what I needed to hear so I stopped there. 

It reaffirmed an inner knowing that I have that if we focused a little less on our own ego and more on finding ways to use our lives to serve others we could find that deeper meaning we are all searching for.  Our true purpose will not come from a focus directly on our own selves, a life of meaning will come from serving the world with our gifts, talents and passions.

I hope this quote will resonate with you too.  Please Share this quote and begin thinking about how to live your life from a place of purpose and meaning. ( Melissa stop rolling your eyes xo)

*MITCH ALBOM is an internationally renowned and best-selling author  who wrote a few of my favourite books of all time; Tuesday's with Morrie, The five people you meet in heaven, and For one more day.

Toni Morrison Quote

Dear friends, Toni Morrison said it best, summed it up simply in this favorite quote of mine. What do you need to give up that is weighing you down? A grudge, an unhealthy relationship, or in my case it's about 50 extra pounds....let's take one step forward to giving that thing up that is stealing our joy and robbing us from the opportunity to FLY!

Love Tammy

Mommy Meditation

I've been trying to meditate daily with the help of some awesome free podcasts and audiobooks I have found on my iPad. Finding that stillness within is a precious gift in each of my days and I look forward to going "there.". How does a mommy have 3 have time to meditate? I fit it in somewhere...even 10 mins of a quiet meeting with my true self can be enough. I have learned now that my third child is 10 months old that self care is not a luxury, it's crucial. While baby naps and the kids are resting quietly I put on my headphones and I am guided to breathe deeply and it feels good to just take the time to be conscious of my own breath. To simply quiet the "shoulda" "coulda" "woulda" chitter chatter just for a moment. I feel more at ease and I will eventually grow and learn more techniques but for now I will be still and be aware and for now that's enough....Tammy
