Do you often think about what you want to become or be after college and then feel a fair amount of pressure because you haven’t figured it out yet? Well, to truly grow into what you really enjoy and what makes you happy for no reason at all, you must make small everyday choices that lead to long term satisfaction, peace, and overall success. If you practice making authentic choices consistently, your choice of job or career will be an extension of who you are. Make sure that what you think … [Read more...]

Are you engaging in authentic relationships?

To be authentic is to be real, transparent, truthful, or honest. Within the word relationships are the words "relate" and "ship." Some synonyms for "relate" include communication, link up, share, connect, and cooperate. When I think of the word "ship," I think of a boat, cruise ship, vessel, or something that carries or transports people or goods. As I reflect upon all of these separate ideas of the words authentic relationships, I am humbled because the underlying meaning of these words is all … [Read more...]

Are you conscious or walking around in a fog?

What is Consciousness? Has anyone ever asked you this question? Have you ever asked yourself this question? It has become a very popular word in our present day society but do we really know what it means? Well, the term “consciousness” means the awareness of being aware. And what we are aware of is what we notice, what we perceive, or what we realize in our everyday lives. So, the next question is, “what are you aware of and is this improving your life or making it more difficult?” As a … [Read more...]

Empower your relationships with compassion

Within the word compassion is the word compass. There is also the word passion. When I think of the word compass, I think of a device with a magnetic needle that helps me determine my sense of direction. When I explored the meaning of the word in the dictionary, I also found that compass means to comprehend, to travel entirely around, or to get into one's possession or power. This discovery was like a revelation for me because when I read those words "direction" and tapping into "one's power," … [Read more...]

I Am a Seed of Greatness!

A seed represents the beginning or starting point of all living things. Inside of the seed is all that is needed to grow into something magnificent. There is nothing to add, subtract or change within the seed to produce its harvest. And the most amazing part is that, given the proper conditions for growth, one tiny seed will produce so much more than itself. To be great is to be massive, to be talented, and to be important. Each and every one of us is born from a seed that already contains … [Read more...]

Tap into the Power of Nature

College students can have very stressful lives. When I was in college, it was commonplace for “information overload” to send us into some of the deepest hours of sleep because we were so worn out from all of those hundreds of chapters of reading material! On many occasions (too many to count), I fell asleep while reading, only to wake up and discover that I lost a lot of valuable study time! During those days, we didn’t use a lot of resources for help. We just “pushed” our way through it … [Read more...]

Harvest Time: Getting a Return on Your Investments

To have a harvest is to have a return, a yield, a collection of some sort. It also implies that we give, express or put something "out there" and, by nature, receive something back. This past summer, my family planted seeds in our garden. We gave our effort in the form of time, physical labor and patience with a positive expectation that we would receive something in return - a harvest of various vegetables. Question for Reflection: When you give your time, effort and energy to your partner, … [Read more...]
