Ever since becoming an involuntary member of the “Life-Changing Events Club” in 2009 when my daughter lost oxygen to her brain for 6 minutes,

I have viewed life with a new perspective.

That new perspective has been the greatest gift of my life.

I believe in life’s ordinary events there is extraordinary meaning.

I believe within our lives there are many life lessons which, when applied, can vastly prepare us for what is to come in our lives.

I believe everything we do and everything that happens to us in our life – happens for a reason.

I know the reason may take many years to come to the surface.

But it most certainly will.

And, I believe, if you are paying attention, you will realize the magnificence of how the universe works.

Here is my vision for my life and for this blog:

To improve the quality of other people’s lives by converting my life experience into the seeds of love, kindness, gratitude, and appreciation which I will plant in the soul of others.

I will be present and nurture this new spirit during chaos and crisis and share in and enhance the bloom of this spirit during accomplishment.

To live in a manner and way which will inspire those I serendipitously share paths with to live their version of the same in their lives.

That is the vision for my life and for this blog.

Thank you for your support.

Listen to the Tingle of Your Soul

I have learned when there is a feeling tingling at your soul, you must listen to it without question. Trust it without confirmation. And act on it without hesitation or delay. Disregard all logic, ignore the probabilities, and mute your ears to the naysayers. The tingling is inside […]

NightBirde

I love it when people mine the jewels that are stored inside them along their journey. Q: Where did the name Nightbirde come from? A: I had a dream 3x, it was of this bird singing in the dark of the night with no proof of the sun […]
