When you show up it makes a world of difference. People are depending on you. YOU do have an IMPACT on how things turn out. You saying something has an impact. You being silent has an impact. You doing the work has an impact. You not doing the work has an impact.

Whether you choose to acknowledge that you have an impact on the things around you, you are impacting the things around you. Since that’s the case, you mine as well suit up, play hard, and aim for the impact that you actually intend to have, not one that is prescribed to you.

What impact do YOU want to have on the world? What will be your contribution?

I will contribute to the transformation of non-profits as we know it. I will contribute to the transformation of communities as we know it. I will contribute to the transformation of families as you know it. I will contribute to the transformation of individuals as you know it. I will be transformation. I will be laughter. I will be joy. I will be peace. I will be love.

Who will you show up as today?

Today's Daily Lesson: the should'ves and could'ves don't matter because they didn't happen. What matters is your reality - the experiences you actually did have today. Give thanks to that.

I find that when you actually focus on the things that did happen today, it doesn't allow you to have any time to focus and dwell on the things that should've happened today, or could've happened today. Why does it matter any way? I mean really, if "family member X" was supposed to do something for you today, and didn't, yet "friend Y" wanted to hang out and do something for you today, why would you focus on family member X and exert negative energy onto someone who actually "is here"..."right now"? 

It is important to check ourselves when we interact with people because our relationships are our core fabric, our mere existence. They give us an opportunity to express who we truly are or who we see ourselves to be.

Give Thanks!


I knew I was transformed when I realized that there is nothing wrong with me, and there is nowhere that I need to be other than right here, right now.  When I realized that I don’t need to “find” myself because I’ve been here all along.  When I started to understand that the only thing I need to focus on is the present, this moment right now, and not the past nor the future. When I began to understand that language matters and it shapes our realities every second of our day.  When I started to take full responsibility for my reality.  When I began to breathe.  That was the moment I knew I was transformed.
I now stand before you as a transformed being, speaking from an empowered place, ready to assist in anyone’s transformation.
