Multiple Streams

I am a multi-faceted multi-tasker, like many who are reading this article. I call myself a professional hyphenate:  Writer-speaker-social worker- minister-radio host-social worker-therapist-addictions counselor- BLISS coach-editor-author-reiki master-PR Goddess (and the list is growing). I used to say that I would ‘patchwork together’ my sources of income so I could stay afloat. When I think about a patchwork quilt, what comes to mind is a lovely blanket with which I can wrap myself, comprised of a multitude of bits and pieces lovingly stitched together. The flip side of it though is the idea that they are also ‘scraps’ of material. That part runs counter to what I want to believe is so about my work.

Instead, I have come to think of the concept of ‘multiple streams of income’ that flow gracefully into my life. What if you could visualize that for yourself? In my mind, I see a trickling body of water, moving through a verdant landscape with wildflowers waving on a brilliantly grassy shore, fed by the richness of the liquid love. As I sit on the earth, I dip my feet in the water and splash about. I scoop up handfuls of it and toss it in the air and lift my face toward the falling drops; laughing as it drenches me. Could I also envision money that way?  I do that often and welcome you to do it too.

Rev. Ike who was a charismatic and iconic preacher and died a few years ago would say that

“You can come to the Ocean with a teaspoon, a bucket, or a tractor trailer! The Ocean doesn’t care! The Ocean just wants to outflow!”  Are you open to being in the flow?

International Day of Friendship
    " Ya  gotta  have friends."  So go the lyrics to Friends sung by the Divalicious Bette Midler.  To my way of thinking, every day is one in which I celebrate friendship. According to the United Nations, July 30th is International Friendship Day. This peacemaking body proclaime

When I Was A Boy
I have been following a thread on a group Facebook page  for The Good Men Project  that was prompted by a video I had posted that showed a young woman being harassed by two young men while she was walking home from school. What happens next is conversation stirring.  One by one, other men step u

Life Is Like A Box of Chocolates
Photo credit:  Alex Lowy   I am open to miracles wherever they appear. Sometimes they show up in the form of a man with a buzz cut, decked out  in a white suit and sneakers, toting a well worn suitcase, plastered with all kinds of stickers as he meandered around the grounds of Wiggins P

Foolish Notion
    Lately I have been rolling through my mind thoughts about origin of violence in the world. I saw a video recently in which Whoopie Goldberg was explaining a statement she had made that it was okay for a man to hit a woman back if she hits him first. If she didn't want to be h

All of It
  Another one of those wee hours wake-ups when life beckons me to the keyboard to type what I may not be able to experience emotionally. I came upon the words of Panache Desai,  author and spiritual teacher who I had the joy of hearing back in 2011 at the Celebrate Your Life Conference in P
