I don’t know about you, my friends, but I know I’m still reeling from seeing the images of all the attacks on people in Paris and around the world. In a world as visual as ours is, images are everything, and the images now seared into my brain have had a profound impact on my […]Read More
Good morning, friends of Messages of Hope. How are you? It’s been a little while since I’ve written a post because I’ve been spending almost every spare minute of the past two months either working at my main business, taking care of my mother and the *things of her life* because she got terribly sick […]Read More
As we all begin a new work week today, I ran across these wonderful illustrations created by Patricia Alix-Villa. The words in the one above started me thinking: Am I consciously designing, little by little and step by step, the life I want to live? I have to say, for many years of my life, I […]Read More
This pretty pink illustration says it all for me today. I hope you will really take its message into your heart, as I have, despite all that is going in my life right now: You are incredible,adorable, lovable, wonderful, powerful, perfectly beautiful, just exactly the way you are….and I would add: inside and out, always.

Friends of Messages of Hope, in today’s post, I’m going to start a series about clean eating, which will include a very personal story that I hope might help some of you, too. I’ve come to learn, through my own body’s experience, what a difference the right food, in the right quantities, can make in my […]Read More
When I’m feeling anxious, I breathe. Long, deep breathes. In……out….. in……out…… in……out. No matter where I am, and no matter what’s going on around me, I can always rely on deep breathing to center and calm me. Could this maybe work for you, too?
