Look Out- I'm Writing Again! Costumes, Babies, Valuable Lessons Learned While Serial-Dating and Funny Vid's

Lets talk about something more fun. Costumes.  What are you planning to be this year for Halloween?

Please know you are invited to attend the Halloween Bash on Saturday, October 29, 2011, starting at 9:00 p.m.  It's going to be a great time and I hope you will honor us with your presence.

It will be like paradise for a night.  Speaking of paradise, of a different variety:

My inspiration has come back into the limelight.  This was brought on by three amazing friends from the past, who came back into my life recently and re-inspired my love for writing, hiking and adventure...  Kim, Casey and Katie- I cannot thank you enough.

 Being turned back on to your passion is priceless and I am thankful.

A common question I've been getting: Where have I been?

Doing wraps because they are amazing, helping waists tone, trim and tighten all over the Sacramento Valley. Granted, I'm passionate about helping people look better and live longer, but something caught my attention and I can't shake it without taking a pause to speak on a certain set of situations people are finding themselves in.

If you don't belong with someone- don't hook up with them.  Are we seriously so lonely we will sabotage the good in us by pairing up with someone who brings out the darkness in our heart?  It may feel brightened initially because of the illusion of acceptance, but I can tell you that this leads down a long, tormented road of unhappiness.


I'm not judging because everyone knows, I'm a classically trained serial-dater. However. I'm cured and life before now....sucked.  You shouldn't have to learn by making every mistake, right? 

What is the test?  How do you know whether the person you are with is Keeper-material?  It's so easy, it's like breathing and you'll know the answer right away.

How do your friends and family feel about this person?  (Most of the time) They have your best interest at heart.  They don't like who you have hooked up with, there is a decent chance you've not landed your ideal.

You want the people in your life to be cheering with all the thumbs up they can manage.  Even if you don't see it now, I hope you will in the near future.

Hero of the Week Move:

My Guy took my brother and a bunch of his friends shooting on 2 1/2 hours of sleep.  If that's not love, I don't know what it.  The fact I am so important to him he was willing to invest in creating great memories with my family and friend made a huge impression.

My phone blew up with texts: "Your Boyfriend is the F-ing Man!" and "What a Great Guy!"

Life is the most incredible thing and we all have the power to create whatever we want. That is what I'm doing now, I scratched everything.  If it isn't worth doing, I scratch it again.

If I had $5.00 for every time someone told me I would never find happiness and what I wanted wasn't out there...that I lived in fantasy-land...I'd be able to buy us all real estate (especially now).
Those Dream-Stealers Were WRONG!

I am done settling!  I want the awesome relationship, perfect health, emotional maturity, laughter and joy, wellness in my mind and spiritual connection that I can depend on and that feels right for me. I want the career I lose sleep thinking about and the means to bless all of the important lives around me.  I want a fantastic spousal relationship, great family and the best friends the world has to offer.

And I am really freaking close.  Where are you at on that journey?  Are you so excited about your future you can't sit still?  Or are you trying to figure out where to go next?  Some people are just content being where they are and that's fine too.  I only get one shot at this life thing...and I really want it to be something awesome.

I was telling my friend Katie today about an experience I had in India- a dream about mountain landscapes.

The biggest lesson I learned in India, was that our lives are not intended to be cubby-hole-style. It is like a mountain landscape that we are so rich in...regardless if anyone sees it.  The only thing that matters is that you see it.  This is a life well lived by my own description and what I am in the process of achieving.

Yet there must be laughter and joy along the way. Hope and happiness.  Giggles and silliness.  So in closing I have the following items to share with you.

Oldies but goodies.

See you next time!  In the meantime I'll be chowing on pumpkin ice cream- 'Tis the Season!
