Atlas Obscura: Cuilcagh Legnabrocky Trail

A meandering boardwalk across the bogland leads to a “stairway to heaven” with sublime views. Don’t let the charming boardwalk or Instagramable “stairway to heaven” fool you. This formidable hike takes you through some of Northern Ireland’s toughest and most desolate terrain. However, the breathtaking landscape and views from the summit of Cuilcagh Mountain surely make it worth the trek.

A Bountiful Moment:

Born into greatness conditioned into mediocrity ~Unknown

Daily Thought

Every one of us is great. There are no exceptions to this rule. Expectations, criticisms, or judgements of others change who you think you are. Believing that you are not good enough, or that you cannot do things is a sign that past judgements are embedded in your memory. Change then becomes based in a self-deficit instead of the truth. You are already great and you have everything you need to accomplish what you want.

Daily Practice

Work from a position of power today. Embrace the knowledge that you are already as great as you need to be and that your decision to achieve a goal is a choice not a need. Work from a place of choosing the next step in your journey not responding to what others are or have dictated to you.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: The Morrigan Calls More Than Warriors

What does the Morrigan want with me? I’m not a warrior.

I’ve heard that question multiple times over the past few weeks. The Morrigan the Irish Goddess of sovereignty, of battle, and of the aftermath of battle  is one of the most active deities of our time. Apparently She’s on another recruiting drive. Or perhaps She�s just recruiting in my neighborhood this time.

Inner Journey


“At the heart of personality is the need to feel a sense of being lovable without having to qualify for that acceptance.”
— Dr. Paul Tournier

How do you see yourself as unlovable?

Take a few minutes to write down why you perceive yourself to be unlovable. Look at the list and see if you can identify where those characterizations originated. Can you pinpoint old messages from parents, teachers, and friends that led you to negative conclusions about yourself? Are those messages valid today?

The beliefs we adopt as children usually don’t hold when we view them objectively as adults. Can you let them go? Can you begin to see yourself as a unique expression of life, a genuine gift to the world?

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
— Buddha

“Limitless like the ocean are your excellent qualities.”
— Dalai Lama

Daily Wisdom

“Intelligence alone, without wisdom and empathy for suffering, is hollow.”-John G. Stoessinger

Intelligence is a wonderful trait, it serves us well in so many ways. And yet, wisdom, which is knowledge seasoned with experience, and compassion, which is heartfelt empathy, makes us all the more intelligent.
