My goal is to be a cheerleader to persons wanting to change, to start fresh in their lives and to let me be their inspiration.


Be An Original

Copies are rarely valued or treasured in any scheme of our existence. The first step to starting fresh, starting now, is to realize you are unique. No one was born like you before and will never exist again.

Be that original version that you were born to be. Originals are always highly valued, whether paintings, statues created by an artist, buildings or landscapes crafted by visionaries, even plants and animals are unique in their own right. A horse cannot become a giraffe no matter how much that horse wishes it to happen and vice versa.

Right here, right now, wave a magic wand and envision the person you would like to manifest. Is this person tall? Then stand tall. Is this person confident? Then hold your head up when you walk into a room. Is this person beautiful? What is beauty to you? Are you afraid of enhancing your looks? Why? If you feel good about yourself on the inside, you will automatically reflect that on the outside. You will improve your posture, you will apply makeup that expresses you, you will transform your wardrobe into what makes you feel and look good at the same time.

If you are unsure how to proceed, then pick up that style magazine, look on the Internet and scan some photos of movie stars you admire. Why do you admire them? You may like the fresh look of Julia Roberts, the outdoorsy look of Brad Pitt, or the exotic look of Sophia Loren. Can you adopt these styles into your life? If not, why not?

Today is the day you must start on the new you. Nothing else is as important than looking well, which will make you feel amazing, and your light will shine in the universe.

Start Now

What is holding you back from starting fresh? Are you worried people won't like the new you? Do you think you don't have the resources or time?

Set these issues aside. It does not take any cash or grief to get started. Walk to your closet and take a look at the primary colors. Are all your clothes basically black and white? Do you want color in your life? Think about the colors that make you feel good, give you confidence, maybe a bright yellow handbag will go awesome with that gray suit you love.

Look in the mirror. Are you happy with your appearance? Are you in a rut? Is there that special hair color you always wanted? Go to any local grocery store or beauty supply shop and pick up one of those boxes of hair color. Most of them are fairly simple. I start with clean hair, absent of any styling products. Wash and blow dry your hair, mix the hair color according to the instructions on the box, let it set according to the instructions on the box, wash out, blow out and enjoy your new hair color. If you have graying hair, there are colors for that too. Just read, study, put it all into action, and enjoy the results.

You need to think about the person you want to show to the world. Yes, you can look at movie stars or other public figures for inspiration, but just don't copy them. You are an original, express what you love and how the clothing makes you feel.

These are simple steps you can do today and see the inspiration that will spark inside of you and you'll want more of this same good feeling to continue in other aspects of your life.

You Got This

Whatever positive changes you make in your life, there will be ripple effects in the universe.

The universe can only respond to activity, action, effort, and movement. Anything you do right now, small steps to reimagine yourself, to move forward in your life, you must start with the mental image, then it will manifest into reality.

When you are that original person you were meant to be, you will see doors open that you never knew existed. People at work will see that you are no longer looking down at the floor, you are looking people in the eye when they talk, you are interested in yourself, which will translate to interest in others.

Take this article and think about the words here on the screen. My goal is to inspire you into being that original person you were born to be.

I am sending you love and hope that these words rest within your heart and soul to carry you forward.

You can't simply be a dreamer your whole life. Physical, outward appearances are important to show the universe you care about yourself and you will draw people towards you that will want to know your secrets.
