Passion is defined as a very strong feeling about a person or thing. Passion is an intense emotion compelling, enthusiasm, or desire for anything. When going through my divorce and other difficult transitions, I realized I was not passionate about anything. In order to survive emotionally, there was a time I did not allow myself to feel any strong emotion, whether passion or anger. How boring is that? We need to find our passion in life and incorporate it as part of our weekly routine. We are here to enjoy and thrive in our incredible life.
We will begin by reflecting on the following questions and then we will discuss ways to begin putting that passion into your life!
Reflect on these questions, take your time. It may take a few weeks before you can answer them. Perhaps write your answers in your journal.
1. What activity would you engage in even if you never made money doing it?
2. When you dream, what do you dream about?
3. What do you like to read about?
4. What are you good at?
5. What sparks your creativity?
6. What are 5 past life experiences that left you with a sense of fulfillment?
7. What was the best time you ever had?
8. What is your favorite part about life?
9. What activities make you feel like your heart is about to burst?
10. If you could do anything today, what would it be?
Now what? While reflecting on these answers, write down 3 things that bring your passion. They may be small things: time with your children, spending more time reading, taking your dog on a walk or they could be larger things: learning to paint, dancing lessons, going back to school. This week, try to incorporate one of your passions into your life.
1. Start with a small thing, something that can easily be added to your life.
2. Be fearless. Do not let your mind tell you “I should” or “I cannot”.
3. Simplify some part of your life to make room for more passion.

“When you believe yourself to be master of your thoughts, you become so.”
Affirmations are statements that help us practice positive thinking. Your mind cannot have two thoughts at the same time. You may have thoughts that follow one another, but there is only one thought at a time. Affirmations help us replace any negative or undesirable thoughts with a thought that will empower us. Affirmations can help us become strong, happy and whole. There are all types of affirmations: for love, prosperity, good health, happiness, self-love, the list can go on and on. The Emile Couse method for affirmations was revolutionary for its time.
An interesting point about affirmations is that they have been used for a long time. In 1922, Emile Coue´ published a book titled, “Self Mastery through Conscious Autosuggestion.” He was a French psychologist who developed a method for attaining health, success, and happiness through the use of autosuggestion. He did 20 years of scientific research and experiments with thousands of people to develop his method.
This is the Emile Coue´ method:
1. Sit in a relaxed position with eyes closed.
2. Repeat in a monotonous tone, the magic words:
“EVERY DAY, IN EVERY WAY, I AM GETTING BETTER AND BETTER”
3. Repeat these magic words 20 times in the morning and 20 times in the evening.
4. Do not think about your illness or your troubles while repeating these words.
5. Your desire must have absolute faith and confidence.
That is it! This is simple to do. You do not need any special props or need to be in any particular place. What you do need is confidence in yourself and to believe firmly that all will be well.
Try it for a month. See if there are some positive changes in your life.
Every day you have a choice to make it a great day. Make it a habit of choosing happiness.
With summer here, shedding weight may be on our minds. Especially if you are planning on putting on that dreaded bathing suit. But, we also carry around excess emotional weight and this can create a heaviness around our bodies. Our bodies are made up of energy and negative emotions can affect us at the cellular level. What are we carrying around? Usually, it is regrets of the past or fear of the future.
There are theories that we literally put on weight in order to “isolate” ourselves from feelings and emotions. Our cells live in the present. If we can learn to live in the moment, all regrets and fears would vanish. It sounds so simple and it is simple in theory. The difficulty lies in changing our old habits.
The great news is that you CAN change your old habits. We are writing our own book about our life and we can change it. By changing our thoughts and having trust in God, we can modify the story. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Man is what he thinks all day long.”
We cannot change the past however much we may like to and we cannot predict the future. However, we can have faith in God and know that whatever comes our way, we can deal with it. This faith can help us shed our excess weight and emotional baggage that we carry around.
When we begin to heal and ease our burdens, we will have more energy and experience the peace, joy, and love of the present moment. Deepak Chopra said, “The present moment is your magnet and you are the compass.”
Tools to Live in the Present Moment
1. Pray – Spend at least a few minutes daily in silent prayer.
2. Breathe- When you are living in the past or the future, stop and take a few deeps breaths to center yourself.
3. Affirmations – They are powerful tools to bring you back to the present moment. “I am drawn into the present moment with peace and joy.”

Forgiveness is the key to happiness. Resentment, anger, and grief over past relationships hold a tremendous amount of energy. It is important to release the negative energy in order for more positive relationships to flow into your life. It is almost like creating a “space” for something or someone new to enter. Below I describe one technique I use to forgive and move on. This exercise can work not only for romantic relationships, it can work for any relationship that needs healing and closure.
There was one man I dated for several months. I felt the relationship was a convenience instead of a priority. The relationship did not progress. Every date was like the “first” date, no more no less. I used this exercise to get the courage to end the relationship and to move on.
In order to release myself and my energy from a relationship, I would write a letter to them. Sometimes it was just one letter other times six or seven. No one would ever see the letters. When I felt I wrote all I need to, I would follow the steps I list below. It provided closure and healing.
This is a powerful exercise.
1. Get a piece of paper and a pen. Sit in a comfortable chair in a quiet space. Take a few deep breaths. Write a letter to the person you need to forgive or the person you need to let go of. Take your time. Write your feelings about them; how they hurt you, how that felt, how you may have done things differently. There is no rule as to how long the letter has to be, keep writing until you have nothing else to say to them. When you feel you have written enough, at the bottom of the letter wish them well and sign your name.
2. Tear the letter up into small pieces and then do one of the following: a) Put them in a pan and burn them. Obviously, be very careful with this step. As you watch them burn say a prayer for the person the letter is addressed or at least wish them happiness b) Bury the pieces of paper in the ground. As you cover them with dirt, say a prayer for the person the letter is addressed to.
3. Repeat this as often as needed, until you feel you have forgiven and released the person. You know you have released this person’s energy when you no longer feel any strong emotion when you think of them.
How many letters did your forgiveness take?
