Inner Journey:


“I was part of that strange race of people aptly described as spending their lives doing things they detest to make money they don’t want to buy things they don’t need to impress people they dislike.”
— Emile Henry Gauvreau

Once again, we invite you to look closely at what you are choosing for yourself.

Why are you doing what you are doing? Would you prefer to be or do something different? How can you bring that ‘something different’ into reality?

“You make what seems a simple choice: choose a man or a job or a neighborhood — and what you have chosen is not a man or a job or a neighborhood, but a life.”
— Jessamyn West

“Choice is destiny’s soul mate.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach

Daily Wisdom
October 29, 2019


“The idea is to seek a vision that gives you purpose in life and then to implement that vision. The vision by itself is one half, one part, of a process. It implies the necessity of living that vision, otherwise the vision will sink back into itself.”

-Lewis P. Johnson, 1987

I think we all have lots of visions throughout our lives. Some we shrug off, we’re not attached to. Others seem to come to us easily. And then there are those that give us a purpose in life. Those are the ones that are important. Those are the ones that push us to learn and grow. We can’t just let those visions go, we have to do something about them. Those are the visions that are life-changing, world-changing!

-Lissa Coffey

The World is not so big that it can hold choices you are unable to make or decisions that could overwhelm you. Be exceptionally confident, capable, and at ease in public and private sectors today.
