Give It Away

654120dd-946a-4821-b59a-18f2fb6afde5I recently attended a workshop that Judy Goodman spoke at in Denver, Colorado, and she said something that resonated with me to the core.

“Whatever is lacking in your life, give it away and it will return to you seven-fold”

What a true statement that is!  As I look back at some of the difficult times in my own life, when I had felt exceptionally lonely, disconnected or was having a difficult time, reaching out and being of service is what got me through.

Staying connected with others is often a very conscious act, requiring that we make the effort and that time is involved. In a world where we are the most connect and at the same time the most disconnected, finding “time” to reach out and spend with others or being of service is often pushed to the back burner. This brings the cycle full circle, often returning us to our starting point of feeling alone and disconnected.

If you are missing something in your life, I urge you to give it away to others with an open heart. Your life will be more full than you could ever imagine.

Make Every Moment Count!

Today I had the honor of presenting to a group of artist at the request of  aBuzz Gallery owner, highly acclaimed fiber artist and Craftsy instructor Carol Ann Waugh.

Everything I’ve learned about connecting with people through social media, I learned from my friend Marianne Pestana. She stopped by my gallery today to teach my mentorship students the ins and outs of Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Just love her! – Carol Ann Waugh
