If it’s free, it’s advice; if you pay for it, it’s counseling; if you can use either one, it’s a miracle.
Jack Adams

My life has been a journey in search of advice, wisdom, and spiritual clarity, since I was a gangly teenager. At that time, books, meditation, counseling, and church were my go-to. Snapshots in my mind take me back to the self-help section in the bookstore. Unashamedly standing amongst of a sea of books, different hairstyle and questionable fashion, browsing the catchy titles. Hunting for a deeper meaning in life. I would have quite the collection had I not learned the power behind purging and the detriment of unnecessary clutter.

Now equipped with a greater sense myself down to hairstyle and fashion, infinite advice is at our fingertips. Information is seamless, endless, instant, and readily accessible. We can research and access anything in any subject, at any moment. They are numerous websites that offer help, support and information on any and every subject. I continue to seek out greater wisdom but now I have a plethora of resources at the click of the mouse.

What I have found to be true, there is nothing new. No new astounding revelation towards the plight and error of humanity. I believe that we can circle around the same subjects and hear the same pieces of wisdom over and over offered up in many different forms. Only when we are ready can we absorbed it.

So what is it that may be holding me back from accepting brilliant insights and positive change? It could be generational belief system passed down and held onto at a core level hindering my perspective. It can be a simple state of maturation or the lack thereof. My Father loves to say, “Youth is wasted on the young”. Sometimes I can be stuck because it is more comfortable in the familiar. How do I remove the bonds that bind me, and the blinders that impair my vision?

Realizing we cannot change other people we can only change ourselves. When we choose the work our perspective can shift.

I try to recognize if there is something blocking me. I will visualize a cord that is tethering me to that blockage then I imagine the cord severed. Simply stating “I release with love that which no longer serves me. I am open to receiving the information that will best assist me at this time”. It’s pretty simple however when I have those “Ah ha” moments it is inspiring! Reaching new levels of understanding can take place in an instant. The same information that may have been coming at me for years I suddenly comprehend. The nut falls from the tree and hits me on the head. Advice did not change I did.

My Mantra: “I welcome break through moments”

Although I would like to say I am organized, focused and cookie-cutter, that simply would not be me. I am no different than any other woman in the world. I love to love, love hard, and, in the end, have learned to love myself above all else. So here I am, writing about the many men and the multiple purposes they have served in my life. Realizing that not one man on my roster had fulfilled every single one of my needs. Perhaps one man is not supposed to? I have compiled snippets of the men that have entered my world. In the end, they have shoved me towards my bathroom mirror, forcing me to take a better look at myself. Reflection is brilliant and the strongest guidepost into ourselves.

Working on the next book in the series “A House for Every Purpose, My Journey From Pillow to Pillow” revels a woman abandoning her home in search or her identity beyond men, motherhood, author.
