Carillu Series

Release Announcement

Froggie and Friends, the first book in the Carillu series, is now available on Amazon.

Co-authored with my daughter Amber Stevens and dedicated to my two special needs grandchildren.

Success is a choice. When we focus on the outcome of success, rather than the fear of failure, we choose to succeed by our actions.

Rip and Real - Day Three

The thrill of life, is the daily unknown. But when life becomes chaotic, the unknowns in life can become overwhelming and cause fear and anxiety. There is much in our life we are not able to control. It is when life feels like it is falling down around us, we have the greatest need to find self-discipline in our thoughts.

Rather than going to speculation of events which may or may not occur, our focus should be on what we can do in our life to be prepared, should events continue to go in a downward spiral. Regardless of the outcome, being prepared will put us in a better advantage for future events.

The uncertainty of life, becomes less uncertain when we feel prepared to face the challenges which arise. While we all would prefer to have life run smoothly and allow us to relax and enjoy it, we often find ourselves in situations out of our control, which take away that option. Preparation is key to being able to get through the tough times of life. 

Preparation not only includes what we can do for ourselves, but includes who we are surrounding ourselves with, which are also in the same mindset. When life becomes challenging, being around individuals who are supportive can assist us in getting through what we are facing. 

Challenging times are hard on relationships. They can take a toll on our self-esteem and belief in our value. It is important that we maintain our belief in ourselves, even when others may give up on us. We all have room for improvement, but when challenging times occur, there are two choices to make. Work harder together to get through them, or go your separate ways if one is not committed during the hard times.

Staying true to our integrity, purpose, and intent is the guiding light which helps us navigate through the storms of life. Take the time today, to reflect on how much you have improved in your preparation for unexpected life event, and explore areas where improvement is needed.

Sometimes life is filled with uncertainty and unknowns. Rather than being haunted with, 'What if?' stay focused on being true to yourself.

There is no need to fight for someone. If they are committed they will be in your life. If not, wish them the best and place your focus on your goals.

You are enough! Read that again. Read it until you no longer need to be validated by another to believe it. You are enough!
