Birthdays

Birthdays are a special time. We are so used to celebrating with cake, friends and family that we usually don’t think much past that. But birthdays are so much more. Here is a video I created entitled What Is A Birthday?

Birthdays are a special day because they mark the beginning of our existence.  They are a reminder of how long we’ve been walking this earth.  Why not take a birthday to another level by making it a “new birth” point for the future?

Think of your dreams and goals.  Your plans.  What have you always wanted to be?  To do?  Why not make a resolution on your birthday to make those things happen?  Reflect on how far you’ve come then make a pact with yourself to go even farther toward your destiny!  What a wonderful “extra” way to celebrate each year when your birthday rolls around again!

If you know anyone who’s having a birthday soon, pass this along!  Maybe they’ll be inspired to give it a try!

A Boost Of Inspiration!

If you like quotes, you’ll love this video clip I created which I entitled A Boost Of Inspiration! I combined several of my inspirational quotes in this video to give you a boost of motivation and determination!  So…without further adieu….here it is!

If you enjoyed it, pass it along to a friend!  A little inspiration is always a good thing!  And reminders are always very helpful in living a life of success.  So…..remember to be positive, purposeful and keep a good sense of humor!  Then everything else will fall into place!

Cheers!

Breaking The Silence Video Clip!

My book Breaking The Silence is now a double award winner in the genre of Inspirational Fiction! I am so grateful to Mom’s Choice Awards for their gold medal and to Pinnacle Book Achievement Awards for their award! It is humbling, to say the least, since Breaking The Silence is written about my life (though places and names have been changed). It has been a surreal experience to have such good come from such pain and turmoil.

Here is a video clip I created about Breaking The Silence with excerpts from my book:

 

If you are a victim of abuse or know a victim of abuse, please pass this information along.  It is my desire to help those who feel trapped by their pain.  I want them to know it is possible to heal.  Breaking The Silence is my story of agony and abuse to hope and healing.

God Bless!

 

 

A video of my poem entitled Don’t Give Up!

A while ago I wrote a poem encouraging myself and others not to give up. I posted it on my blog under poems. Then I had the idea to make it into a video:

I posted it on my youtube channel and now I’m creating even more videos.  If you subscribe, you’ll see each new video as they come out.  I’m mixing things up a bit and creating numerous types of videos for my subscribers….all inspirational in nature.

I love getting to know my readers and viewers.  Feel free to leave comments and I’ll be sure to respond at my earliest convenience.

Thanks for being part of my creative process!  Cheers!

Who’s Tired? I’m Not Tired!

For those of you who are familiar with me, you know I’m a night owl. I’d rather stay up late than get up early. It’s how I’ve always been. I think I was wired for the night life.

The dark cloak of night is a comfort and the sounds of the night are relaxing to me. I love to look at the sky and watch the moon and stars. I find them particularly beautiful on cool summer evenings.

To celebrate my erratic hours, I created a GIF entitled “Who’s Tired?  I’m Not Tired?” for people like me who tend to burn the candle at both ends.  Not only do I have a day job and a family, but I’m also a writer and an artist.  So there have been many (too many to remember) days when I felt like this:

If you can relate, feel free to pass this GIF along.  It’s a fun way to say,  “Cut me some slack!  I was up much too late….again!”

Life Is Short. Live It Well!

 

 

Each of us thinks that we have all the time in the world to do what we want to with our lives. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. The clock of time is constantly ticking, urging us forward second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day. The days have a way of turning into months and the months have a way of turning into years. Soon we are left wondering about where all our time went…if we’re lucky enough to have that much time.

Each of us has a purpose to find and fulfill. Sometimes (many times), that purpose can take years to figure out. So make the most of the time you have. Try not to engage in worry or hatred, fear or torment to the best of your ability. These things only steal more of your time. And if you are forced to deal with these things as most of us are, take wisdom away from the experience so that they can enrich the process of finding your purpose. You only have one life to live. Live it well!

Learning How To Heal

When I was afflicted by the pain and torment of my past, it seemed like I would never be able to heal. For years I wondered if healing was even possible. It seemed like a mountain that I couldn’t climb…as if my pain was too great to even fathom the ability to overcome it.

Had I known that healing truly was possible, I would have had more hope.  My faith was low, my hope even lower.  I asked numerous people who knew of my circumstance if I could ever come out victorious from my situation.  The most hopeful response I received was  “maybe.”

When you’re in the depths of despair for years, surrounded by very few people who are supportive, “maybe” isn’t a good answer.  The word “maybe” caused my despair to deepen.  But by the magic of God’s healing, I eventually overcame my situation.

This is a video I created about what I learned regarding healing.  It’s not as elusive as it seems. In fact, it is possible to heal from the type of trauma I endured.  If you’re in a period of suffering, please take a moment to watch my video.  And know that you, too, can achieve happiness.
