Setting A Foundation For The Life We Want

It is very important that we realize that as individuals we need to take responsibility for the foundation of our life. We need to look for the tools that will help us grow as individuals, as partners within our local community, and as partners within our global community.

Some of the things to take into consideration in building a solid personal foundation for life are:

  • Starting out the day with a short meditation, and a list of what we are thankful for.
  • Creating daily, weekly, and monthly goals.
  • Keeping a daily journal.
  • Following a healthy diet that spports who you are. (For me, that is a vegetarian diet.)
  • Getting exercise in some form on a daily basis.
  • Grtting enough sleep.
  • Learning to prioritize.

In today’s blog I am going to be referencing a course that I am taking – “Say Yes To Success”, by Debra Poneman. ( This is not a promotion for this course, even though it is working well for me. It is simply an example of what is out there, and why it works for me.

I took a series of free sessions that Debra Poneman was offering, which were so good that I jumped at the chance to take her ten-week course. The sessions are presented over Zoom, so I could do them from home. They are of a reasonable length – 90 minutes – and she has downloads that she sends out the day before each session. She covers a multitude of life areas over the course of the ten weeks, including:

  • What Is Success – Living In The Light Of Grace
  • Harnessing The Infinite Power Of Your Mind
  • The Role of Goals And The Power Of Gratitude
  • When To Hold On And When To let Go: Learning To Tap Into And Trust Your Intuition
  • Creating Flow With Your Time And In Your Environment
  • The Magic Of Healing Your Heart
  • Opening The Floodgates Of Abundance
  • Creating Vibrant Health And Reversing The Aging Process
  • YOU Have The Power To Change The World
  • Living True Spirituality For Your Ultimate Life (And GRADUATION CELEBRATION)

Poneman has a Facebook page dedicated to this course, where people are encouraged to share their thoughts and experiencesd as we work our way though the sessions. For me, it is a blessing to read about other peoples experiences, to know that I am not alone, and to be able to add my little bit of wisdom to other people’s posts. It takes a village, and this is our village!

This is what is working for me. There are a lot of tools of empowerment out there, within our communities, and on the Internet. Many of them are free. Find what works for you, and put some effort into it. As you move forward with whatever tool you choose to work with, you will feel lighter, more positive, and better able to manifest your visions!

Our Wellness Journey Is One Of Choices

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”  ~  J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Sometimes choices are easy to make, sometimes they are not. But choices are what life is all about! Our wellness journey is one in which our goal is to balance all facets of our life so that we are at peace. Our goals are in alignment with our beliefs, and our outer world reflects our inner world.

I have been gifted with several opportunities lately, and the decisions that I made simply fell into place. I was offered a small writing opportunity in an upcoming book, and I took it. It will stretch what I do, and I get to work with someone that I admire. I have been asked to review a book, and I happily accepted this opportunity – solely based on the books title! I do have to say that I admire the author, but that is secondary in this case to an incredible title! Another opportunity I had to decline, although again I truly admire the individual that offered it to me. I simply did not have the time to do the work required.

The end of the month is coming, so I have the catalogs out for the wellness company that I joined. The first of the month I will be placing my second order, which will require some thought, as this company has so many outstanding products.

I also need a new computer, as soon as possible. This is a need and not a want. Well, perhaps both, but the need supersedes the want, as I have to log onto the phone line that I work for through the Internet, and I don’t have a backup computer. My current laptop, that has served me so well, is having some issues. Strange issues. So I will purchase a new laptop, and take my current laptop to the laptop doctors to have it cleaned up so that it can be my backup.

How do you feel about the decisions you are making? Do they reflect the life that you want?
