Do You Ask the “What If” Question?

The energy of possibility is far stronger and more exciting than when we are talking about our issues. Have you ever noticed how you feel when you get stuck in negative thoughts? When you are thinking or talking about your issues you become inward focused, and so does your energy. When fear, doubt or worry become the focal point, it is easy to get sucked into a downward spiral that works to keep you stuck.

Granted, this is not where we want to be, yet we all find ourselves there from time to time. When you recognize that you are stuck, that awareness is 80 % of the making a change. After all, nothing can be changed unless there is recognition of it.

Thinking about what is possible is one way to change the energy and look beyond the issue. Begin this by asking a what if question?  What if everything is working together for my good? What if all the negative things I think about myself, simply are not true?  What if all my needs were being met? What else might be true?

Asking what if, begins to open your thinking to a story that is larger than your own. It helps you to think beyond your own limits and into a world of possibility. But mostly, you will begin to notice and expect to see the small miraculous parts of life that are there for you every day.

I want to leave you with one of my favorite quotes:

When your life is filled with the desire to see holiness in everyday life, something magical happens: ordinary life becomes extraordinary, and the very process of life begins to nourish your soul. ~Rabbi Harold Kushner

I know many of you have wonderful stories about moving from limited or negative thinking to seeing life in a extraordinary way. If you care to share, I would love to hear. You can leave a comment or send an Email 


Is Spring Really Here?

During the final relaxation part of my yoga class, our teacher talked about how unpredictable spring is in Minnesota. It is often one step forward and several steps back, just like in life.

That felt like a true statement for me at this moment in time in my own life. When one thing was working well, several others stopped working and my frustration was growing by the day.  I consider myself a positive person but I can have negative thoughts as easily as anyone else. In fact, this one of the most common issues people have and the most damaging to our self-esteem, that is why I devoted a whole chapter to it in my book. If negative thinking is something you have trouble with try some of these ideas to help you turn them into positive action.

  • Create a mindset that empowers you.
  • Stay away from all or nothing thinking.
  • Don’t make assumptions.
  • Keep things in perspective.

I go into greater detail and offer more suggestions in my book, along with practical ways for you to take action.  Available on Amazon

A special request: I know many of you have purchased my book and if you are able I would love it you would post a review on Amazon for me. As an independent author it is the one of the important ways we can get noticed on Amazon. Thank you so much!


Benefits Of A Move Forward Mindset!


We don’t mean for it to happen, but often enough, we find ourselves stuck in a pattern of doing something or thinking about something in the same way. It takes awareness and work to make changes that enrich our lives so people are nervous will often ask me to explain the what the benefits are. As soon as the question is asked, they have realized that doing or thinking the same way, limits the richness of their life experiences. When things are the same, there is not much to be surprised about.

I have been making a practice of challenging myself to do new things and shifting my perspective enough to to see more than one side to a story or an issue. I have discovered that it takes a little practice but by making an intention to adopt POSITIVE MOVEMENT MINDSET, my experiences and opportunities have grown and expanded my life.
