Today

Today. This day. I had a little bit of an epiphany. I realized that you can do whatever you want to do and be anyone that you want to be. You can make your own rules. You can run free. Just do it with the right attitude. So often we get told who to be in this society. Or feel like we have to follow along and play the part of this cookie cutter life.…

More Than This

<a href="http://sookton.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/20121119-185328.jpg"> Ever since I was a child I would sit and ponder the meaning of life. Why are we here? What is our purpose? Honestly, if you have an investigative mind, like most people do, how could you not want to know? As I've grown I have shifted my curiosity from the macro to the micro. Instead of asking what our purpose is, I'm starting to think more about what my purpose is. Today,…

Dear Lola: Six Things My Dog Has Taught Me About Myself

When I first saw her, with her little curly black tail and immensely cute floppy brown ears, I knew she was my dog. Not because she was adorable. That was a given. But because she had this spunky attitude and a strut that said, "look at me! I'm fabulous." Her name is Lola and she doesn't know just how fabulous she really is. Right now, she's curled up by my feet and her warm doggy…

Day 4 and 5: The Girl in the Mirror

"A moment of love, a dream, a laugh. A kiss, a cry. Our rights, our wrongs." This is your life.

Deepak Chopra's meditating thought for the day is “I use my conscious intention to manifest my dreams.” Today I went to the beach and relaxed with my family. It was a beautiful, relaxing day, and watching the waves crash on the shore, I felt a sense of calm and peace. A glow of positivity seemed to settle over me. It's amazing how positive thinking and a little bit of sunshine can transform your day.

Day 2: Clairvoyance

We stood out on the beach shoulder to shoulder and looked out at the ocean. "That which I desire is within me." We gave thanks to the ocean and released all our desires out beyond the shoreline. Today's centering meditation by Deepak Chopra involves tapping into our goals and desires. Chopra states that our desires are within ourselves, we just need to bring them into existence. When I think about reaching my desires, I think…

Day 1: Reflections, Dreams, and the Field of Possibilities

Today's Deepak Chopra meditation: "Today, I embrace my potential to be, do, and have whatever I can dream." Last night, I was driving in the car when Aerosmith's "Dream On" came on the radio. I never realized the lyrics until the rang out in my once silent car. "Dream on, dream on, dream until your dreams come true." I must admit I'm a bit of a dreamer. And people often say my heads in the…
