If you feel lonely, tap into your imagination to use your time to serve or learn something new . There are times in life when you will have more questions than answers. Even in the darkness of this time, know that you are not alone. Be still and listen to your heart, which will allow you to access a deep strength and genuine joy for life.

Allow yourself to hear your own still small voice; to believe in your truth; to find a place within of safety and peace, and to understand the depth and truth of your own feelings. Life is meant to be lived~ not endured or existing feeling totally stressed out. You have the power to create a life in which you are respected for who you are  valued, cherished and celebrated!
