My favorite quote is “Preparation Breeds Opportunity”. This quote means everything to me. I have been reciting it since I was in middle school to breed me for success. In order to be ready for any opportunity that comes my way, I need to be prepared mentally, physically, and emotionally. The better prepared I am, the more opportunities I can create for myself.

Life of Abundance is the affirmation I continually repeat to myself. It resonates with me because it immediately resets my mindset, like a snap of my fingers, to be centered in a positive and joyful place. Living life abundantly and believing life and knowing life is abundant, creates a world of generosity vs scarcity. There is plenty for all of us. We can be giving of our time, of our knowledge and not worry about oversharing our gifts, knowledge and time etc. because we have abundance. Read more>>

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: “Every artist was first an amateur” and I do agree with him. This affirmation is applicable to any kind of job or career, which was first a passion or an interest. The American painter Bob Ross also confirmed this point of view saying he “started painting as a hobby when (he) was little. (He) didn’t know (he) had any talent. (He) believed talent is just a pursued interest. Anybody can do what (he) do(es)”. Read more>>

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” By Marianne Williamson I love how empowering and liberating it is! Read more>>

“When there’s a smile in your heart, there’s no better time to start. Think of all the joy you’ll find when you leave the world behind and bid your fears goodbye. You can fly!” – Peter Pan This quote inspired me to create a little serendipity as a tribute to a fun filled childhood and a dream to create a maniacal journey for my babies. Being a mom to four little ones, I am always looking for new ways to show them things, teach them about the wonderful stuff the world has to offer. I’m constantly searching for way to I inspire them to be great and follow their own dreams. Creating my business not only provides me with the flexibility to work around my family, it also gives me the opportunity to put a little magic in every ones home. Read more>>

My favorite quote from Terrence J, “chase the dream and the money will come”. When I was in college I kept going back and forth about if I should change my major from fashion to nursing. To me this means to remember why you started and stay focused on that until you reach the finish line. Read more>>
