#soulSOLUTIONS: Keep it simple

images-1For years I wanted nothing to do ANYTHING simple. I liked the rush of having a lot of stuff and all the commitments and upkeep that came with maintaining it. But as my commitment to peace and happiness deepened I realized that all the things I acquired were more like distractions than badges of honor that proved I “made it”.

In this #soulSOLUTIONS we explore how a commitment to keep it simple can support you in expanding the awareness of LOVE in your life.

 

#soulCHEF: oatmeal & cherry cobbler

I opened the fridge the other day to find my husband’s left-over oatmeal sitting in a bowl with some plastic wrap loosely covering the top.  “He’ll never eat this…” I thought, so I repurposed the dish and made a lil’ cobbler for dessert that evening.  The results were SO GOOD.

Super simple.  Super tasty.  And best of all … we didn’t have to waste any food.  Enjoy!

#soulTALKS: true success.

Screen Shot 2014-08-06 at 7.44.42 AMIt took a lot of kicking and screaming until I discovered the secret of true success for myself. I was so tired of chasing the dream, manifesting lots of stuff, and comparing myself to other people. When I finally surrendered to a new possibility of success my entire life opened up because I shifted the trajectory of my path and started to make a straight shot towards LOVE.
