I woke up this morning really understanding the importance of living in the now!

  • When I was a young child I always said “When I grow up I want to be a NURSE”! I want to make people better!
  • When I was an adolescent it was “I never want to grow up but I know I have to decide what I am going to do with my life, I am to stupid to be a nurse!
  • When I was 14 I was told by a teacher/counselor that when I grew up I would be good for nothing other than to stay at home, get married if anyone would want me and raise a family and the only courses I could take were secretarial courses because I was not smart enough to be a nurse, or go onto school!
  • Then I became a young adult and fulfilled everyones wishes!
  • I became a secretary, got bored, and worked for many employers!
  • I got married to my childhood boyfriend, was unable to have a family and got divorced!
  • I learned my world was not a kind place to be, and also realized I needed to experience my life based on everyone else’s expectations of me!
  • I began to realize their expectations, continued on a path of self destruction, defeat, and degradation.
  • In others eyes I became successful, moved ahead with a career, went to school, made a lot of money, lived fast, ┬átraveled a lot, became stressed, distraught and lost in the world of everyone else’s expectations!

Finally I became a true adult!

  • I made new choices
  • Left everything that everyone else expected behind me
  • Began to live in the now
  • Became who I am today without the labels and outside expectations
  • I put into practice all of the learning I gained in my life to become a helper of people, not a nurse in the sense I envisioned being as a child, but helping others to help themselves!

I choose in this moment to help people to understand themselves MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY by not listening to only the indoctrinated belief systems and expectations that exist today, but by living in the moment and listening to themselves!

Peace, love, light and blessings to us all on our unique and wonderful journey through life, living in this moment.
