Inner Journey:


“It is never about how good your voice is; it is only about feeling the urge to sing, and then having the courage to do it with the voice you are given.”
— Katie in ‘True to Form’ by Elizabeth Berg

How often have you allowed fear and your inner critic to stop you from doing something you were inspired to do?

Helen Keller said, “Life is either a grand adventure or nothing.” When we allow fear and criticism to stop us in our tracks, we give up that grand adventure. What a waste!

“Be an all-out, not a hold-out.”
— Norman Vincent Peale


A Note from the Universe

Lovin’ it all,

Daily Wisdom
February 1, 2022

“Common sense is instinct. Enough of it is genius.”

-George Bernard Shaw

We know what is good for us. That’s common sense. We don’t even have to think about it. When we apply that same common sense, that same instinct, to the big things in our lives then they can come just as easily, just as effortlessly for us. The universe is made up of infinite intelligence, and we can tap into it if we would just get out of our own way

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Moon

Things may be going fine but you’ll still be able to find something to be disappointed about. Rather than looking on the glum side of things, take a walk in the sunshine or at least get some fresh air and make an effort to be more objective. Full-blown optimism may be beyond you today, but you can balance your mood by noticing and maybe making a list of all those things that are going right.
