give her little wings.
What to do…
when the person you thought you’d love forever
makes you sad, manipulates, cannot relate to your desire for growth?
Do you stay when you’ve grown in different directions?
Kids know how to find friends who align with them.
We need to do the same as adults.
You are not a bad person to want joy and alignment.
As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears. 🌤
Thinking and planning is certainly good preparation. But it takes movement and experience to grow wiser (and braver).
Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are. 🌻
I’m learning to be comfortable with being a bit uncomfortable. To move into a new and freshly inspired life, well… I need to become new and freshly—-you get it.
The cure for pain is in the pain. 🌵
Oh RUMI! This one gives me life. I’ve always found my stronger, wiser self inside pain. I now try to reframe “pain”. Instead of it feeling like a dagger, it feels like a turning point.
Set your life on fire and surround yourself with those that fan your flames. 🔥
I get amped by other warriors and risers. I want to hear about your transformation. I want you to brag about your courage. (Complainers need not apply).
I want to swell your head with compliments because you have done want you said you were going to do. I love to fan and applaud show-offs — the ones who are really nice people and sincerely feel joyful about what they can display! Talent inspires me. Drive makes me wake up. People who are grateful for life make the party rock.
Do you have a fave RUMI quote?
What does it move inside you?
I’d love to hear.
had spaghetti dinner with Donna and the band and her husband, Bruce, before her concert in California 1984
spent the weekend with Donna’s personal secretary at her apartment in Beverly Hills and got to meet Mimi, Donna’s first daughter, who was there when we arrived
then the next summer I got to do it again.
I hung out backstage in the green room the next year from 4pm until Donna’s concert started, then returned backstage for the after-show party. I was 16.
As a sixth grader on the playground during elementary school recess in Iowa, I was prophesying my future.
“How are you going to do that, Michelle?”
It was a valid question.
To everyone I seemed merely a wishful kid singing and hoping my heart out in a little city in the midwest.
But you see, I did NOT NEED TO KNOW how it would happen to believe it would.
I felt like it was gonna happen.
My vision and feeling were the only proof I needed to know I’d meet Donna Summer one day.
And I ended up spending time with her twice. Hours and hours of time with her!
I learned at 11 that you can declare your vision and construct a real-life happening from your faith. You need to feel your vision like it’s real.
I’ve been doing it ever since.
What is your vision? Are you seeing it every morning and night with me like we planned? Visit my Facebook page so you can join me in seeing your future as real right now!

Clawing for your dream to become real can be a bit exhausting, if it goes on long enough.
In order for most of us to claim our deepest desires:
to lose fat once and for all,
to cruise to a six-figure income,
to hold the keys to your beach house,
to finally caress the hand of your everlasting mate,
we need to start acting more like a kid instead of a pissed-off, overwhelmed, confused,
and irritated grown-up.
Use every pocket of me-time: when you’re in the shower, on the toilet,
or right before bed
to daydream VIVIDLY!
What’s new in your wardrobe when you’re 10 pounds lighter?
How does it feel to look at your bank statements after you’ve easily paid your credit card bill and sent extra money to your investment accounts?
Describe the kitchen and bathroom in your beach house.
What does your everlasting love say to you on Sunday morning?
Eat the foods someone 10 pounds lighter would eat.
Send money to your nieces every month.
Go to HomeDepot and select the cabinets and tiles you’re gonna use for the kitchen remodel in your beach house.
Wake up feeling that you’re seen and loved.
Actively MAKE BELIEVE your dream is real RIGHT NOW.
And like a crazy adult or a creative child, boldly PRETEND you are living your dream every single day without cease.
I am a WILD journaler. I journal every morning of every day of every week with a pen.
I journal my feelings with dance whenever I get the chance. Won’t you join me?

Yoga begins when the mind chatter ceases.
