Let’s Play!

January 22, 2020

” Every time I sit down to play, I learn something new.”

Erroll Garner

The word play, has such a light and fun vibe when you say the word. As apposed to the word work, which has a much more serious connotation behind its energy. Children love to play and are able to take the simplest of objects, use their imaginations and make it into something totally different.  Then we go to school and the playing stops.

 


What happens? Playing is essential to learning. If you are in an environment where there is stress, tension, pressure or any sort of feeling that isn’t relaxed your ability to learn is lessened.  Neuro-science has shown that when your brain senses that it isn’t safe you can not be in a creative mind-set. It is actually in a survival one. Once you don’t feel safe, there is no trust, and where there is no trust, you shut down.

Playing is essential to learning. As adults, we go to work. We don’t say we go to play. Why do we say we play an instrument, or we play sports, rather than work a violin, or work at baseball?  What if you started playing more? What if you started having more fun? What if you started using your imagination and played with ideas to create something new?

The more we bring back the arts in school, in our places of work and in our homes, the more we can learn, and the more we learn, the more fun we have, and the more fun we have the more peaceful we become. Who’s ready to play?


Are You Going Through It Or Growing Through It?

July 3, 2019

Let’s face it, life can be darn hard at times. It can knock you down, turn you inside out and twist you around. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t achieved greatness without going through some sort of adversity.

The difference between those that succeeded and those that didn’t is the faith and courage to get back up and go at it again. Also, having someone in your corner. someone who sees your goodness and sees something that you can’t or don’t believe in yet. There were times that I wanted to give up on myself but something inside me kept me going. You can call it source energy, God, spirit, consciousness or infinite intelligence, but it’s real and it always available to tap into.

If you’re going through some tough times, you can grow through it. To reach mastery in anything, or to overcome anything ask your heart for guidance and then give it your all. Grow through it!  Nothing happens by accident. Learn from adversity and grow. You’ll amaze yourself who you can become!


It’s All B S

January 30, 2019

                     People will fight for what’s familiar then fight for their desires.

What do you believe? A belief is only a thought that you have been holding on to for a long time. It is not necessarily the truth. Beliefs can change. As children, many of you believed in Santa Claus. But as we got older our parents or someone shattered that belief.

Maybe you were brought up to believe that rich people aren’t good, or you have to work hard to get wealthy, or you will never amount to much. What ever you heard, saw or experienced growing up does not mean it’s set in stone. It is only a belief system. The only problem is that the B S you have grown up to believe, is now your B S!

You’ve got to question if those belief systems are actually working for you. Do you feel stuck, frustrated, angry, confused, doubtful? These are signs! Do you want more from life? You’ve got to change your belief systems.

Think, question, read, discover, investigate and research what is working in your life and what you want to change. Don’t settle for the B S, go and create the life you desire. Learn, grow, expand, express and seek new beliefs that will work for you, not against you.

It’s all B S. The question is what are you buying into?
