“HOW TO” Start creating what you want! (Life Lesson #13)

General — Donna @ 4:56 pm

imagesEver hear that saying that “your world is a mirror of your thoughts”? The thing empowering about that is that means you can change your world! But I will go a step further…it’s not just your thoughts like for example: “I wish I had more money.” It’s how you actually FEEL about the topic. If your thoughts focus on the “lack” of money…guess what you are creating? Yeah, the LACK of money. Oh yeah and the best thing about it is that your life TODAY reflects your thoughts of the PAST. So start changing your thoughts AND feelings about things TODAY and watch your future slowly (or quickly) start to reflect the new thoughts/vibes/feeling about things in your future. And I’m not talking about the bull shit of just “saying” something you want to change in a positive way (I mean you can use that to start)….but you have to really feel it and believe it. I’m talking about when your in the car alone or home in your bed alone. Only YOU know the truth about how you REALLY  feel about it. And THAT’S the vibe you’re truly putting out there in the universe. THAT’S the vibe you have to check in with and change in order for your life around you to start changing. So don’t bull shit yourself…be real with yourself.

So the “how to” of this? For me, I take the areas of my life: relationships, kids, money, health, creativity, career, contribution, etc. and look at what’s going on in my life right now in those areas. And most of the time I can see the reflection of my thoughts/lack of thoughts/types of thoughts in those areas to be truly reflected in my current life situation both good and “bad”. But remember, today is based on the thoughts from your past. I encourage you to start asking questions on the areas you want to create to be better like..”What’s a more productive way for me to think about this? ” “What type of thinking do I need to change this situation? ” (Because its’s the old thinking that got you into it). Then it’s about what you say to yourself  like “I am so excited that I’m going to start to become more financially secure!” “I’m so excited to see the new friends that are going to come into my life!”  (Get it? Don’t think about the lack!) Then go with the feeling …feel what it would feel like…wonder about it, see it in your mind, feel it in your soul. THEN what starts to happen is you start getting these inspired thoughts to start taking action toward what you really want to create…and that’s when it starts manifesting..maybe in little bits and pieces…but when those “little bits and pieces” start to manifest …that’s when you say “YES! Thank you! More of this please!”…and your vibes get stronger about what you are really starting to create….and that’s makes how you feel even stronger…and that makes the momentum of what you are creating start to snowball….and there you go…you are creating a different life for yourself!

And you will see the results of this thinking…as long as it’s pure…with no resistance. Hey, why not give it a try and see what happens in the next couple of weeks? I’d love to hear from you!  I’ve done it for myself….saw it working FAST, so fast one time that it actually freaked me out  and that messed up my vibes about it. It was happening faster than I could handle at that time. So instead of freaking out about new things and new people all of a sudden showing up to help me create what I want…I now say what I told you above… “Yes! Thank you! More of this please!”….and I’m hoping you get to use that phrase real soon for yourself! :)

We are all in this together!

In my next letter to you…bringing up and dealing with what you’ve been suppressing.

With crazy love and gratitude! (and laughter!:)

“HOW TO” LAUGH WHEN THINGS AREN’T GOING YOUR WAY (Life Lesson #12)

General — Donna @ 11:18 am

laughingSitting alone in my den at my lowest point, crying, feeling like my whole world was upside down- when all of a sudden, that crying turned into me laughing hysterically! I was like here I am trying to do so much in my life, making changes, trying to handle everything in the best way I knew how… so much of it  for CONNECTION and here I am…completely ALONE?? WTF?!?!  How ironic is THIS!? And that’s when I “got it”…another lesson…stop taking myself and my shit so seriously! Did that ever happen to you? When the only thing you had left to do was to LAUGH at the whole ridiculous, “why and how the hell is this happening to me???” situation? Yeah I’m talking about your tuff stuff. There are people out there who are in not the “best” situations that have learned to laugh at themselves which just completely changes your state of mind.  There are books out there with authors who have went through the toughest experiences and were able to write  laughing about them and laughing  at themselves.. Can you find the humor in your hard times? Believe me , I’m not taking away that situations are real, raw for you. Just offering a way for you to lighten the stress of it a bit. I mean this is just a small thing and example but I went for a root canal 2 days ago…and I had my head phones on with music playing.  As the dentist is plunging these huge long needles into my mouth a new song comes on with repeating lyrics that say “my face hurts when I’m with you!”…and I just start laughing in the chair..how ironic and what perfect timing to hear this! lol…..they must have thought I was crazy but there it was..the humor in my root canal! And yes, I felt more relaxed after that laugh, and they wound up doing a great job.

And if you can’t find the humor in your situation right now, try watching other people laugh, a funny TV show, a comedian…anything that can make you laugh. Like they say, laughter is the best medicine..releases all types of feel good chemicals in your body! Just give yourself a BREAK from the seriousness of your life once in a while…hey- you can always go back;)

I’m including 2 links in this blog which I usually don’t do… but not only does it get funnier and funnier as you watch it…you may find yourself putting on a little grin, then maybe a full on smile and then actually laughter! There’s a lot of  ”youth” in these short clips…but maybe that’s why I was led to them…maybe we should all find the “kid” in us a little…again.

Copy and paste:

Clip ONE:    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTOeuH-iEJ8       (how can you not laugh along with this one??)

Clip TWO:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JmA2ClUvUY       (the kid on the left obviously has something very serious to say….. which the one on the right thinks is hysterical:)

There’s GOT to be a reason they have millions of hits…I think EVERYONE needs a little more laughter in their lives!:)

We are all in this together!

In my next letter to you…creating what you want.

With crazy love and gratitude! (and laughter!:)

“HOW TO” Not Feel Alone (Life Lesson #11)

General — Donna @ 4:41 pm

images (2)It used to drive me crazy when people would say “You’re never alone!” Ummmm yes I was and still am sometimes. I was like…there is nobody here in my home with me days in a row, so ummm yes, I am alone. And YES I believe in God, I believe there are guides on the “other side” looking out for me. I believe my dad, family and friends that have crossed are “around” when I call on them. But I was talking in the human manifestation sense, you know like people. So I always had a hard time resonating  with the concept “you’re not alone”…because it sure as hell felt like it.

Then one day after wrapping a movie at my home where I was used to having like 60 people in my home from 5 am to midnight 5 days in a row, all of us working together for a common goal, my home was empty. It went from like having this huge family to being able to hear a pin drop. It was just me and a crew member on the stoop and that friend was talking about his life, and how he has to return to his “real life” now and how that consists of living “alone”…and visiting an older relative to take care of her throughout the week. How he eats by himself etc. and it wasn’t in a sad way, he was just telling me what his day to day consisted of. That’s when it hit me, the perspective that made sense to me. So try and get this with me…..It’s not that I’m not “alone”……it’s that I’m NOT alone in BEING alone. There were OTHER people out there feeling the same things I was feeling!  It was an ahaa moment for me! And when I connected to THAT concept, I ironically didn’t feel alone anymore! lol

I’ve also learned throughout my life that you can feel alone when you are by yourself, and you can feel alone when you are in a relationship…it really doesn’t matter. So if you can feel alone either way the only person to really look for in finding happiness is yourself. It is a DECISION to be happy when you have moments that you are alone…it may be for weeks,months or even years.. And when you get there, you just may start having thoughts like…”What do I have to be grateful for?” Or “You know what….let me check on my garden and take care of my vegetables and flowers.” And “Hey I’m feeling good right now and there is nobody here…I am at peace…cool!” I have grown into a much more peaceful place in my life now, and I have to say it feels really nice :) So it was important for me to get this thought out to you today. That’s why I love to sign off with “We are all in this together!” Because whatever it is you are going through or feeling, there ARE people out there going through the same thing. And its opportunities like this when I can reach out to you and remind you of this, that we can bridge the gap:) I’m sending you lots of love and light right now as I am writing this..so please take it and feel it!!!:)

“WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!!”

In my next letter to you….when all else fails…you just gotta laugh at the absurdities! 

With crazy love and gratitude!

“How To” Let Your Light Shine Again! (Life Lesson #10)

General — Donna @ 10:32 am

light_body-1Have you ever had things going REALLY good in life….felt like you were shining…bursting with light….inspired…..making things happen… and then something happens where you get the rug pulled out from under you? Took some of life’s hard punches? Got knocked down only to look up and be like wtf was THAT?!?! Yeah, I totally have….and have been like “where did my light go? My inspiration? My drive?? Is this it? I’m I changed forever? Am I ever going to get that light back? Is it gone now? Has what I went through just put it out? Am I changed forever?

Well I will share with you my perspective from where I am at now, which is feeling I’d say honestly maybe 75 percent instead of the 150 percent I had felt before going through a divorce….(and fill in the blank with whatever you went through or are going through for yourself). So, my light was shining, then I felt like I just lost it…it was OUT…my biggest fear being will I ever get it back and accomplish the goals and dreams I had already set into motion but had put on the back burner to deal with the challenge before me?

Here’s what I found so far….that light NEVER goes out….because that light is your soul….and I’m alive in this body (although some days I wonder lol) and so are you or you wouldn’t be reading this right now …so therefore my soul and your soul is still lit and here right now. It may have felt or feels like it was put out for good…but it’s not. And it could have felt like that for whatever amount of time…for me it’s taken 5 years to get back to feeling 75 percent…and sometimes that pisses me off, like have I been wasting my time not living at my best? But you know what? No. I haven’t been wasting my time…I’ve been steadily getting back on my feet…up from being knocked down….building a new and stronger foundation. And when I look back to the state I was in years ago and compare it to where I am now….I’ve come a long way baby.

I think when your light is dimmed it just means it’s the time in your journey that you’re being forced to turn inward….to figure out what the lessons are you are supposed to be learning…to figure out what you are truly made of, and what you really want in life….what’s most important to you. And as you figure your shit out, your light starts to feel a bit brighter, you start to feel that all is not lost….it just maybe changed a bit, has different rules. Once you can accept that then the vision for your future starts to reappear, it really does! And that’s when you start feeling that fire again! And as you do, your light gets brighter, and you can start turning outward to the world again. Although I feel I have so much more to give and to create, I know my light has gotten brighter again or I wouldn’t have the inspiration to send out these letters to you that I hope can make a positive difference in your life!

So please know, your light is still there, and at the right time it will be bright again…and you’ll find evidence in this when you start to feel creative again, inspired again, reaching out to the world again…even if it is in small steps, little by little. Don’t ignore your progress….acknowledge it!

I have faith that I will get back to my beaming 150 percent of overflow!!! And so will you!! Thank you for letting me share my thoughts and lessons and perspectives with you! I really hope you find some type of inspiration you can take and bring into your own life…

-because we are all in this together! :)  

In my next letter to you… “You are never truly alone…and that goes for those of you who are sitting in a room by yourself right now!”

With crazy love and gratitude!

“HOW TO” BE AT PEACE WITH YOUR JOURNEY (LIFE LESSON # 9)

General — Donna @ 3:24 pm

directionsEver sit back and say to yourself that in the grand scheme of life “I’m not where I thought I’d be right now” or “This new path that I’m on is not what I had anticipated!?!?” or “How the hell did I wind up here?!?!” Well, I totally have! Ever thought you were heading in one direction only to be pushed into a U-turn or some other direction other than where you thought you were heading? Yup, me too. Even today I ask myself why am I not further along with certain things I thought I’d accomplish already. Also, going through a divorce, being on my own….never thought that was going to happen. And I know you have your own detours you’ve been on or are on right now! But I’m still here and so are you!  There’s a new path, new circumstances, new people, new challenges. A path can never be “bad” if you stop and find the lesson and blessing in it…no matter what it looks like or feels like. Very often a “set-back” is just a “set-up”!

So maybe ask yourself…”Why have I been guided to this new “other” path?” What’s the lesson and blessing I’m supposed to find here? Because you’re on this path for a reason…I believe your soul’s growth. And hey, you know what? It may just be a detour for a short while! You just may have some things you still have to learn before those dreams of yours come true! And when you have gone through hard times, it makes those good times just SO much sweeter…SO much more appreciated-right?? Just because you are on a different path than expected doesn’t mean it’s not the right path to get you to where you ultimately wanted to be! You can still get to your original destination, or maybe wind up in a better one than you’ve been imagining! You can still have what you envisioned for yourself…maybe the person just has a different face and name, or the job a different title, or the home a different address..or the love comes to you in a different way….do you get what I’m saying here?

Either way, whether you are on a short detour or have been on a totally different path completely, I believe you are exactly where you are supposed to be at this exact moment in time. All your experiences have brought you right here, right now, today where you are reading this to remind you that you have made it this far, and are being guided ! No matter where you are right now on your journey, you are still important, and you still matter! So I encourage you to stop, go inward for a moment and to really think about your lesson and blessing for where you are right now….who knows, maybe that’s the key to getting yourself back on the main road….

We’re all in this together:)

In my next letter to you….the light never fully goes out!

With crazy love and gratitude!

“HOW TO” BE WHOLE (Life lesson #8)

General — Donna @ 6:38 am

wholeDo you ever feel like you’re incomplete? Like something is missing from who you really are? Well here’s the thing…you are already whole. And what make us not feel that way sometimes isn’t that we are already complete, but rather it’s the b.s. fears and insecurities that we take on as our own. They just cloud things all up! Once we are able to release those fears and insecurities, what lies beneath is a unique amazing soul…the one that’s been there this whole time-already whole and perfect!

So it’s not necessarily needing to add more to ourselves, but rather its about letting  go of any of those beliefs and thoughts that cause us to think that we are anything  less than who we truly are. Like letting go of the false belief that you are “not good enough” – that’s something that totally needs to be shed so that your inside shines like it is supposed to…like it is meant to! And when you can love who you are without those negative false beliefs, you will find yourself to  be whole- no matter what you are going through or where you are in life. That’s when  all the good things that you wind up attracting will  just be these amazing cherries on top….that new relationship that appears, that new job, new house, new friends, new experiences,  etc. You will find that you didn’t need these things to “complete” you – but rather to enhance all that you already are -which is a masterpiece!

 So yeah, “How to be Whole” is really just a trick title- there is no “how to”….you already are ;) xoxo

In my next letter to you…your journey may not be what you thought you wanted, but it may be just what you needed to get you to arrive where you are supposed to be.

We’re all in this together:)

With crazy love and gratitude!

“HOW TO” FIND YOUR HAPPINESS NOWWWW! (Life lesson #7 )

General — Donna @ 10:24 pm

kid happyWhy do we want anything that we want? Because we believe it will bring us the feeling of happiness, right? So if it’s that feeling your’re after, why not give yourself that gift now? Why wait? When you are in a bummed out place, you know, feeling sad, focusing on the negative (of course we all go there once in a while…and some of us visit there way too long) that negative energy just attracts more negative energy. The negative thoughts just attract more negative thoughts. So if you are going through a hard time, here’s what I used to do….give yourself a time limit. You want to feel sad?? Fine…give yourself 10 min , or maybe an hour, or a day, maybe even a week. But when that time is up, your visit to that place is DONE my friend! Why? Because here’s the deal. It’s not “I’ll be happy when I get it, or the time comes” It’s actually “I’ll be happy NOW, FIRST, BEFORE I get it or when the time comes!” Because it’s in that state of being that draws the good to you. Happy attracts happy!  And I don’t mean fooling yourself in your mind with just words…that doesn’t count. I mean REALLY feeling it and believing it from your core…THAT’s what I’m talkin’ about! And even if it doesn’t come right away according to your timeline…guess what? At least you’ve given yourself the gift of feeling happy while your waiting and are not wasting another day not expressing all that good in you!

Getting what you want or where you want to be actually is just a moment in time. But all the days leading up to that day is your life. And all those days after that day that you finally arrive and get what you want is the rest of your life. You deserve as many happy days as possible! Not a few just here and there. And even after you achieved what you want, you are going to want something new or more. That never ends, but that’s okay…that’s life force in you that wants to keep creating! That’s living! That’s what makes you alive! So I encourage you to live as many happy days as possible! Seek out the good! Hey, look, if you’re reading this you’re still alive….that means you ain’t done yet! And that’s something to be happy about! That’s a great starting point!!!

Next letter to you… you are already whole:)

We’re all in this together:)

With crazy love and gratitude!

“HOW TO” FIND YOUR FREEDOM! (Life Lesson #6)

General — Donna @ 11:53 pm


freetobeyouHave you ever felt trapped? Like in a cage? Feeling the pressure of life…daydreaming what it would feel like to feel free? (I have.) Well the good news is that freedom is a state of mind that you can attain no matter where you are in life. The trapped feeling is usually caused by pushing against something that you don’t want and that’s not going to change anytime in the near future.  As I have said before in prior letters, decide what you can and cannot control. If you CAN control it, then stop stressing over it and DO something about it! If it’s something you cannot control then accepting that it is what it is for now, for the time being, can set you free!

You can get to the feeling of freedom through acceptance. So what do I mean by acceptance? I mean accepting that this is some kind of process that you need to go through in order to have a deeper understanding of yourself, of people….of life. While you’re going through it, it might not make any sense at the time, and the pain sucks. But I invite you to jump ahead to your future self and ask that future self to look back at the situation you are in now. I know you might have not wanted the situation you are in, but ask your future self: Why did I need to go through that? What did I have to learn? How did I change for the better? How was that a gift? If you can dig down deep and be honest with yourself about the answers (because they are there), you can bring those answers back to the present and accept the experience. In accepting the experience, you can free yourself from the pressure and the stress of not wanting things to be how they are for the moment. And that my friend , puts you on the road to freedom :)

Accept and let it go….accept and let it go…..

Next week…finding happiness:)

We’re all in this together:)

With crazy love and gratitude!

“HOW TO” ACCEPT THAT TIME IS ON YOUR SIDE…YES IT IS (LIFE LESSON #5)

General — Donna @ 9:06 am

timeIt’s like one day you wake up and finally realize that life is going to go on no matter what….and that you’re still alive…still here. And that’s the turning point. Life has been subtlety pushing you along and you didn’t even realize it. So take a look back at your life. What emotional or physical challenges have you gone through? What decisions have you made? What paths have you taken? Well, guess what? You have made it!!! Take a moment and let that sink in. You……have….made….it! You may not be exactly where you want yet, but all those trial and tribulations from the past?? You’ve kicked their ass! You’ve gotten through them and you’re still standing! Yes, yes, yes I know, you still may be in the middle of dealing with something, but come on…take that strength from the past and use it to move forward into your future! Take confidence in how strong and resilient you have been, even in the times where you thought that you couldn’t handle it anymore…because time has shown you that you did!

My life wasn’t how “I wanted it to be” for a good few years. But with time, spring came. When I accepted the flow that I was in, everything became clear and I was presented with a whole bunch of new choices.Choices that I was in control of now. Choices that came from a loving, centered place inside of me. And from that came new decisions. Decisions that felt good, felt right, felt empowering and inspiring! I started  to envision a new future and felt for the first time in a while, peace:) ahhhhhh:)

Time can  force you to accept certain things and can take the pressure off. What I mean is that you can look in the mirror and say, “OK, this is my life and has been my life.” Instead of trying to fight it, acceptance, which comes with time, can bring you the moment of clarity that you need. Clarity on what you really need to be focusing on, and what really needs to be changed for your future. It’s like a murky lake. The waters may have been rough at one point in time, but that murk will settle and the water will become clear again. Time will eventually cause your life to “settle”. And from there, you will get clear on how much you’ve grown…how far you’ve come…and the inspiration to start moving your life in the direction you want with clarity…finally. My hope for you is that you will realize all of this this to be true for your life as well….in time:)  In my next letter to you….“freedom.”

We’re all in this together:)

With crazy love and gratitude!

“HOW TO” MOVE THROUGH THE PAIN…BECAUSE IT’S TEMPORARY! (LIFE LESSON #4)

General — Donna @ 9:43 pm

weightPain is temporary! Work through it and the emotional pain WILL subside! I was told this at one point in my life when I really needed to hear it and believe it….so now I’m telling you! If you are in that pain right now, it WON’T last forever! Maybe a few days, weeks, months, even a few years…but it will subside! I know when you’re in it, it’s all encompassing like it will never go away, but it will…you’re life isn’t going to end because of it! I look at it like a spiritual growth spurt…yes it hurts…but keep walking! So let’s gain some perspective on the pain. For example, if your a parent of a little girl and the arm of her favorite doll pops off, for your daughter, her whole world is upside down. But to us as a parent, we know it is not the end of the world , and that she WILL smile again because we can see the big picture of her life. Or like when you are working out…you KNOW going to the gym is going to cause some pain, but you go anyway (well, at least you try lol). You know the pain will be temporary and the big picture is that you know overall it will be good for you and it will help your muscles to grow. I may be crazy, but I love when my muscles hurt after working out because  I know that means my muscles are waking up and my body is responding and getting stronger!

So sometimes when I am in a painful situation, I try and step out and gain perspective on the “big picture”. I’m in pain because that’s life telling me “okay…time to grow Donna…time to learn…time to take control….or time to let go.” And the faster you figure out what it is for you, the faster the pain will subside. I’ve been in that place where I felt like I couldn’t find the window, couldn’t get out…but  I did…and me being able to look back and write about it, and to try and help others is even more proof that the pain has gone….because in that state there was no way  I could have written this, or even have the capacity to care about writing this.  But you know what? I understand that there is a good chance throughout my life that some pain, somewhere down the road, will pop up again. But I have to remember that I’ve visited that place before…and it doesn’t last forever.

So where in YOUR life have you been in a dark place and gotten past it? You made it right? You’re alive or you wouldn’t be reading this right now, right?? :) I invite you to bring that past victory closer to you today. Use it to get past the challenge you are facing today. Step back and see yourself rising above and looking down on the situation you are in now. See it as a period of time in your life….not as your life. You are going to make it! You are a strong courageous bad-ass who wanted to come into this life!…ready to face the challenges that you knew would help you to grow into your best self! Your spirit is SO much greater than ANY challenge you encounter…you WILL move through this and you WILL move on!!….time says so. (And that “time” is what we will look at next time :)

We’re all in this together:)

With crazy love and gratitude!
