You are young if you believe it!

I spoke with a friend briefly today on staying young at heart. Although I’ll be one year down soon and quickly approaching my inevitable 40, I want to merely affirm what I believe one can do to stay youthful regardless of their age. These positive statements will forever remind me and others that “you are never too old.”  

Y – YOU – only you can take care of you – believe in yourself, love your life, rejuvenate your mind, body and soul — treat yourself with a snack, your favorite drink or an outing, do what you love and do it with full commitment, watch a movie, meditate, listen to your inner being and satisfy yourself.

O – OPEN your heart to all the joys of life — embrace your life and the lives of people that surround you…live well, laugh often and love always.

U – UNLEASH your greatness by overcoming fears and negativity — wisdom is achieved with a clear and positive mind. Release the thoughts that hold you back and “talk it out” when you need to.

N – NO pain, no gain — life is full of obstacles that we must conquer in order to gain a better understanding of our purpose in life. You wouldn’t know whether you could do something if you never did it. The failures you face will transform and perfect your life.

G – GET yourself in shape and in good health one step at a time even if it is difficult when you are starting out; you will get tremendous energy by being fit.

Your “young” future is in your hands!

Cheers to a new decade, new beginnings and a new ME!

After three weeks of daring adventure, I can safely say that I’ve returned with a new ME! My recent trip to my homeland (Karachi, Pakistan) was quite a risky undertaking but what I have learned and gained during that time made the entire trip worthwhile – from each and every encounter to the family bonding to the spirit of human kindness.

2011 will hold an abundance of surprises for me and I’m so ready for them! As I walked in to the New Year on the night of my arrival from Karachi, I knew that this year was going to be full of new beginnings. Instead of “bringing the baggage” with me, I will stay focused in the here and the now, my happiness and my family’s joys. I will enjoy all of my talents to the fullest that I have abandoned in the past. I will allow myself the R & R that I deserve. I consider myself beyond lucky to be in a profession that I am so passionate about and continue to work with such amazing people. I am already making the right choices that are bringing the right results. And most of all, I feel absolutely great!

The transformation of me into a unique individual, an even more courageous woman is remarkably refreshing. I am so excited to see where I will be in a year from now. There is a lot to accomplish and many more opportunistic challenges ahead with rewarding experiences that I anxiously await. The New Year is about the evolution of me and I owe a great deal of gratitude to a very dear friend for showing me the way, the light.

Today, I thank God for each and every moment of happiness that I have been greeted with along my journey. May the New Year bring my family and friends the peace and prosperity that they desire.


To every event in life there are at least two perspectives; yours and that of reality. Often they are not one in the same and that is what makes life a learning experience.
