Who You are…

Today’s post is a quick, but phenomenal,  and inspirational video from Jon Jorgenson and The Anima Series. This video came out a few years ago, but the message is timeless and powerful. I won’t ruin it with a lot of superfluous words. I’m hoping that by keeping it short, you’ll take the time to watch this important video.

On their Facebook Page, you’ll find a video telling how their story got started from a video…THIS video…gone viral! 

you-are-more-than-awesome-girl-you-re-amazing

Okay ladies. This one is for you. This is the Anima Series video for Women, and the original Anima Video. You owe it to yourself to give yourself the next 3:36. It’s worth it..YOU are worth it!

Until next time,

Namaste my friends !

On Eagle’s Wings….

Things are quickly coming to a close for me at Hawthorn University. I recently finished my final course. Now, as I approach my final exam and ultimately begin writing my thesis, I decided to take a break from my usual daily and weekly posts. I’d like to honor this point in my life with some songs that inspire me. I chose songs which may seem unusual to you, but which remind me of where I am and where I need to go.

I Can See Clearly Now By: Anne Murray

Times Of Your Life By: Paul Anka

Unstoppable By: Rascal Flatts

On Eagle’s Wings By: Michael Joncas

Closing thoughts

The final song, ON EAGLE’S WINGS, is a Catholic hymn. It was always a favorite of mine as a teen attending a Catholic high school. As I fear the future, the unknown, It reminds me to trust the process, to trust in God. It reminds me that God carries us through the difficult and challenging times in our life. If I trust my intuition, pray, meditate and really listen to what he has to say, with my heart, the future won’t be so scary.

I’ll be away from my blog for the next 3 weeks.

I wanted to let you know that this will be my one and only post this week and for the next three weeks. Do to the seriousness of my upcoming test, I decided to step away from my blog and devote all my time to preparing for my exam.

UNTIL NEXT TIME…NAMASTE MY FRIENDS!

When they come home…Military homecomings to touch your heart.

NEVER FORGET…ALWAYS REMEMBER

This week, I’m paying tribute to our men and women in uniform as we commemorate the end of World War I, 100 years ago, on November 11, 1918.

“We don’t even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The human capacity for survival and renewal is awesome.”

~  Isabel Allende

Thank you for your service!

In this touching video, you’ll witness members of our military as they surprise their loved ones….FAIR WARNING: TEARS ARE FORTHCOMING!

 

 

Some gave all… 1918 to 2018

NEVER FORGET…ALWAYS REMEMBER

This week, I’m paying tribute to our men and women in uniform as we commemorate the end of World War I, 100 years ago, on November 11, 1918.

“The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

~ Douglas MacArthur

Thank you for your service!

This beautiful song called SOME GAVE ALL, by: Billy Ray Cyrus, is dedicated to our men and women in uniform. Enjoy!

 

 

I fought for you… 1918 to 2018

This is a “moving patriotic video” shows  the  passing on of knowledge and the importance of remembering those who fought for our freedom.

Remembering their sacrifice… 1918 to 2018

NEVER FORGET…ALWAYS REMEMBER

This week, I’m paying tribute to our men and women in uniform as we commemorate the end of World War I, 100 years ago, on November 11, 1918.

“The imagination plays a trick. We see these soldiers in our mind as old and wise, but most of them were boys when they died. They gave up two lives; The one they were living and the one they would have lived. When they died, they gave up their chance to be husbands and fathers and grandfathers. They gave up their chance to be revered old men. They gave up everything for our country, for us, and all we can do, is remember.”

Ronald Reagan

Thank you for your service!
