When Nature plants an acorn, it strives to yield its potential — and destiny — as a magnificent oak, its growth tempered only by the amount of sun, rain, and nutrients. But what of we humans? What other factors may be in play? Our beliefs — and that of others — can shape who we… Continue reading Wisdom of the Acorn


Celebrating and Honouring All The Stages In Our lives

  Several friends and colleagues recently have had milestone birthdays, anywhere from 21 to 70 and everything in-between. Each approached their milestone differently — some with curiosity, some with trepidation, some with celebration... and some by planning their first cosmetic "tweak"!

Surround yourself with love, Starchild 

   One of the best ways to stay whole and positive, to bloom, to be the wonderful and self-realized individuals that we are, is to surround ourselves with people who believe in us, people who love us.
