About Me

My photo
Kennebunkport, Maine, United States
I’ve had to learn to live life on the positive side. If I can do it, I know anyone can. My goal here is to share my experiences, have others share their's and together we can help and encourage each other to be better people. As we all know, success in life takes effort, a change in behavior and the realization that you have to do both to succeed. Maybe you are one of the millions of people who begin every year saying, “This year is going to be different. This year I’m going to make my dreams come true”. If you do not prepare and change your actions from your current path for the upcoming year, do you really believe you will end up at a different destination than last year? What if we did it together, supporting each other on a daily basis. I hope you'll join the journey of finding positive light in an ever negative world.

A Few More Selected Quotes

The grand awakening happens when you can see for the first time that the only thing which can bring you true happiness is you. When you love yourself that much, you have awakened to the glory, warmth and magnificence that is empowerment. The truth is you are everything you will ever need, and anything and everyone that comes along for the ride, makes life a sweeter more delicious experience. Wendy Shaw 8/3/10

If you knew for sure you couldn’t fail, would you hold anything back? Guess what? You can’t fail! Start by focusing on the future and not on where you’ve already been or are now. When you focus on where you’ve been, you’ll get more of where you’ve been; when you focus on where you are, you’ll get more of where you are; and when you focus on where you’re going, you’ll eventually go there. Hmmmm…YES it’s that simple. Wendy Shaw 8/5/10

Without a keen sense of personal power, the soul cries for freedom from the restrictions you have allowed to be imposed on your behalf. It’s like a cleansing rain, washing away your misconceptions and allowing a clear view of who you are really meant to be. Wendy Shaw 8/31/10

The amazing abilities of one individual can out shine the ordinary efforts of 10,000 men. - Every circumstance you have lived has been one chosen by you to create understanding, compassion and a warm glow of love and acceptance (a torch of light) by which your soul can share its true message to others who are in need of understanding. An understanding that these amazing gifts lay within them too if they are willing to accept the responsibility of their divine greatness. Wendy Shaw 9/1/10

I've decided to add some of my quotes that I've written over the past 12 months. I am currently doing alot of writing and intend to expand on my thoughts over the past year and publish a book in the coming months! Love to you all and I hope you enjoy them!! XO

Sometimes when changes or set backs occur in our life, although unwanted, sad and sometimes painful, it is in preparation for something greater and more substantial to arrive in our life. Something even greater than we may have previously thought possible.

Wendy Shaw – 11/27/09

Most of what we fear is a result of our minds setting limitations to avoid risk that it perceives could end in disappointed, hurt or humiliation. When you’re mind is telling you no, take one more step knowing that what you seek is beyond your physical senses and everything you’ve ever wanted is there waiting for you to take.

Wendy Shaw 11/28/09

Life can seem unfair and sometimes those unexpected and unwanted circumstances that pop-up without warning, or even a circumstance you have failed to view with an objective eye, come at exactly the right time and are exactly what you need to push you forward and give you a glimpse of something totally unexpected, something that will benefit you in ways you could not have imagined.

Wendy Shaw 12/7/09

In your journey to anything worthwhile, the lights are not all going to be green, there will be traffic jams and delays and you are going to come across a detour or two. When that happens, you can either decided to turn around and go back or pull out the TomTom and search for an alternate route.

Keep Swinging

Life is a series of curve balls. That is what it seems like at least. One minute you are confident in your ability to hit one out of the park and then, just like that, life sends you a curve ball and you swing and you miss. Then the doubt creeps in. Will I be able to hit the next ball? Will I swing and miss and strike out? You begin to doubt your ability to hit a single, never mind hitting a homerun. You may end up frozen in fear and decide to stop swinging all together. The problem with that is, you can still strike out even when you are not swinging.

What is going to make you stand up and start swinging again? Is there something in your life so important to you that you will hold your head high and start swinging again? The worst thing to do is to give up all together on the game. Perhaps you were really good at it and will be again. Perhaps you weren’t so good at it, but you could become great.

“Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game” - Cinderella Story

What Are Your Resolutions?

So it’s resolution time. If you haven’t come up with any yet, it’s not too late. In fact it doesn’t have to be January 1st to make a new resolution. You can make a new start any day of the year you choose. I personally decided to start my diet on October 31, 2009. It was a difficult time to do so, because it was Halloween with all its residual candy, and then Thanksgiving with all the food, and of course Christmas which was a whole month of avoiding cookies, candies, gift baskets and just really good stuff everywhere you go. I could have said, “I’ll wait until after the New Year, it will be easier then”, but I am sure glad I didn’t wait. I’m pleased to inform you that I’ve lost 27 pounds since then. It’s taken disciple and a lot of hard work and exercise, but it was something that was very important to me. Which brings me back to you…..

If you could wake up tomorrow morning with the things (not necessarily material) in your life that you want most what would they be? In the same sense, if you could wake up tomorrow morning with the things you want least in your life, what would they be? (thank you to a very good friend for those provoking thoughts to ponder). What is it that is very important to you? What is it that you want to do or change the most?

It’s not easy making substantial changes to your life. It’s not easy making small changes for that matter. But in order to do so, you have to be willing to put the effort into making those things you want most a reality. Unfortunately, it’s not going to just happen and you can’t set back and say, if it is meant to be, it will be. Sometimes you have to step out on a limb, risk loss or failure, and perhaps even face fear and the fear of the unknown.

Start by making a list of everything you always wanted to do. Identify a few that are really important to you. Is there one that you want to work on the most? Consider what steps you need to take to reach that goal. If you are not certain what course to take to get to where you want to be, do some research on the subject, find someone who has been where you are and has done what you need to do and ask them for help. If you are still uncertain how to start, please email me. I love research and would be willing to help in anyway I can.

So, how do you eat and elephant? A bite at a time. We don’t need to know today all the steps to get to the goal line. We just have to make some effort and get through today. One thing for sure is if you take a small step today and another tomorrow, you will eventually end up where you want to be. As you make small accomplishments, they will turn into big accomplishments and you will give yourself the best gift you can – personal power and a belief that you can accomplish anything you put your mind to. I find the most important factor in success in anything I do is the support of people who sincerely care. With all the technology available today it is easier than ever to connect with like minded people who want the best for each other. I hope that we can help each other along our journey to our goals and become great friends along the way!

Peace and Love.
