"A life spent in making mistakes is not only more honorable
but more useful than a life spent doing nothing." ~ George Bernard Shaw
Don't be afraid of making mistakes. It's one of the ways we learn. Learn from your mistakes and then move forward.
Dream your dreams, do the thing that gives your life meaning. If you're doing something that doesn't make your heart sing--in the big picture, nothing is always perfectly wonderful, there are challenges in even the best of choices--you can always change direction, change your mind, regroup, and move ahead in the direction you want to be moving!
One of the beautiful gifts that life experience brings is that each mistake you make shapes you. You have more experience and you get to make more choices from a position of deeper understanding.
Be true to you. (and be honest with yourself!)
"In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity." ~ Albert Einstein

The walnut tree in my back yard lost the last of its leaves for winter. We're past the fall now and full on into the winter. And the walnut tree just looks stagnant, like it's just taking a break from producing anything. Only on closer examination, you can se the tips of the trees are ready to burst open at the first sign of spring!
Just because you may feel like not much is happening in your life, doesn't mean that things are stagnant. Energy moves in waves and cycles. Sometimes you just need to lay low. When the next wave of energy rises within you, trust that you can catch that wave for some new movement. Visualize what you want for yourself in your life. See it clearly and trust that the opportunity will arise for you to step into what you envision. Be ready to take action in the right time! It doesn't all happen at once and it doesn't happen on demand either.
Hang in there. You are precious and good just exactly where you are right now.

When things feel like they are turing upside down, that's a message from G.d that it's time to break through to a deeper place. It's really a kind of a treasure hunt to find the whole of you and shed the dark protections that you don't even need any more. You are a treasure! You are a whole, wonderful world.
So when things seem really rough, it is not for nothing. There is a purpose! You can take that as a cue to dig deeper. Turn in to your Soul and return to the truest, most golden you.
You are the treasure!
Yes, you are.
Live the extraordinary life you deserve.
Aunt Laya inspires and encourages you to live the life you want for yourself! She'll tell you the truth, even when it's not always so easy to hear so that you can learn to handle the hard stuff of life and be your best, happiest self. Always with love and caring.
