It's A New Day

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, February 28, 2010, In : Spiritual 
It's a new day
a fresh start
a better way
to live from the heart.
It's a new day
the past is gone
cares float away
happiness lives on
It's a new day
start something new
who cares what they say
grab what you're due
It's a new day
make a beautiful course
take time to play
connect with your source
It's a new day
make it your own
change is in your hands
look how much you've grown!

Put Your Heart Into It

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, February 27, 2010, In : Spiritual 
Put your heart into it.
Add love in whatever you do.
Find ways to give hope
and see the good as best you can.
Because when you look
though the eyes of
compassion, love and
understanding, you see things,
people, situations in whole
new vision and light.
When you shut your heart off,
you lose your ability to
see clearly.  Your agenda takes over.
Your eyes close.
There is no seeing it
for what it is.  You may be
seeing it for what it will be,
could be, can be, might be.
What about reali...

Who Do You Listen To?

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, February 25, 2010, In : Spiritual 

Who do you listen to?

People on the outside and

voices that aren't yours?

Maybe they know better,

you say, how could I know?

How could you not?

What is best for you

can only be determined by you.

Misteps you have made

in the past make you believe

that you don't know what's best.

Aren't mistakes part of learning?

You grow from your mistakes,

you see diamonds in the rough,

opportunities in the challenges,

so why aren't mistakes

a part of your learning curve

while you're here?

Yes, they are no fun

but they are w...

Happiness comes in all shapes and sizes
all situations, great and small
it doesn't matter what you encounter
Happiness makes you stand tall
Happiness makes you laugh,
smile, giggle and grin from ear to ear
you can't hide the joy you feel
your feelings become very clear
Happiness comes from within
others can steal it - at least they can try
you have the power to be up or down
you can decide how you fly
Happiness is the beauty you see,
the love you feel,...

Step Forward

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : Spiritual 
When you realize you are far from center,
not in the place you want to be,
you have a choice.
Stay where you are and
not reach your goals, be miserable
and feel like life is never going to change.
The other choice is to take steps,
no matter how small, no matter how few,
to get back to your center.
You didn't get the far away in one day,
you won't get back to the center
in one day either.
Even if you have to take a step back,
you still be closer to your center.
Have patience, persevere
and fi...

You Are Who You Are

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, February 20, 2010, In : Spiritual 
You are who you are.
Being someone else doesn't fit you.
So be comfortable in your skin.
Love all of who you are.
Doing that, you inspire others.
You release fear.
You remove the mask.
You bow out of the game.
You are you.
And trust me,
you are spectacular.
Yes, you.
There is nothing you can't do
once you embrace 
who you are.
Not sure who you are?
Well, time to get to know
yourself better than ever.
What do you want in life?
What is no longer acceptable?
What are your talents?
Who are ...

You Are Powerful

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, February 19, 2010, In : Spiritual 

You are powerful.

You get through the hard times.

You move with grace.

You still fight when exhausted.

You are powerful.

You have an endless well of strength,

even when you feel like it's dry,

you manage to find more.

You are powerful

waking up every day

turning your face to the sun

and saying "I can face it"

You are powerful.

Helping others in need,

smiling even in pain,

staying positive in the rain.

You are powerful

even when you don't know you are.

So believe in yourself

that you can handle

whatever comes yo...

You Are Beautiful

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, February 17, 2010, In : Spiritual 
You are beautiful.
Inside and out.
Your beauty glows and
lights up the world.
It shines brighter than
any coin or diamond,
it is more stunning than
the most gorgous painting,
it is warmer than
the most perfect summer day.
Your beauty is 
your unique gift to the world.
And yet, some days
you hide it.
You don't believe in
your beauty
for whatever reason.
But I say
your beauty is what
sets you apart
from all the rest.
You can't hide it,
you can't deny it,
so embrace it.
Because your beauty

To Yourself Be True

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, February 16, 2010, In : Spiritual 
Sometimes the questions
don't get answered.
Sometimes life will not
deal the best hand.
Sometimes it will not
make sense at the time
but it is always
within the plan.

It can be hard to trust,
to understand the reasons why,
but it might not be clear
why you now have tears to cry.
So let the sorrow flow,
release it from your heart and mind,
but while you deal with these feelings,
make sure to yourself you're kind.

There are lessons to be learned,
growth in the way you live and love,
the schoo...

Practicing Thoughtfulness

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, February 15, 2010, In : Articles 
~One from the archives.  Enjoy!~
Here’s an interesting word to contemplate – thoughtfulness. What does that mean, exactly? Maybe it means we can tear apart a subject with the best of them by looking at the topic deeply or asking a lot of questions. There have been times that, in my discussions with people, we've had mind blowing revelations. (You've had those experiences too, right?)
Or maybe it means taking other people’s feelings or reactions into account before doing something. ...

What Can Love Do?

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, February 14, 2010, In : Spiritual 

There is love all around

in eyes, hearts and hands.

The world has lots of potential

for love to be part of the plan.

It's free to give and receive,

it can turn around the bad,

it can heal the hardest hearts

and make the sad turn glad.

It takes a lot of risk to love,

to send it to all you meet,

but once you unleash it wildly

it's one of the sweetest treats.

Love brings the lightest feelings,

happiness, joy and celebration

it has power to move mountains,

it can gently change a nation.

So on Cupid's day,

when he...

You Are Inspiration

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, February 12, 2010,

You are inspiration.


There are people in your life

who you make smile every day.

You lift their heart

and their emotions.

You give them a shoulder

to lean on and

you tell them the truth,

even if it's painful to hear.

You mean so much to them,

just by being who you are.

Your kindness and love

is what sets you apart

and to those that are

you biggest fans,

you change their life.

Remind yourself

when you're having a

bad day or a crazy day,

there are those in your life

that love you and

are inspired by who ...

To Do List

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, February 10, 2010,
Do you have a dream list?
That list you want to accomplish
as your life moves forward -
yeah, one of those.
What do you have on there?
Some want money and fame
others want family and friends
some want to jump out of a plane
others just want to retire early.
What's on your list?
Are there things that make you better?
Things that inspire others?
Or just THINGS - things that could
disappear quickly.
Are they just dreams and wishes
or are you serious about accomplishing them?
Consider it's not ju...

Bye, Bye Ego

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, February 8, 2010, In : Articles 

Has there been a time in your life that you decided to do something different?  Finally!  You know what you want to do with your life!

And then all of a sudden -  all that fear, the doubts, the past, the things you “must do” - hold you back.  “That idea is crazy”, “Why would you do something so silly?” for example, those are the voices that tug at you, sometimes not so softly, to stop you.  And many times, they do.

What is all the muck that comes into your life to stop you from w...

Try Again

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, February 7, 2010, In : Spiritual 
Try again.
When it seems hopeless
and out of reach,
frustrating and maddening,
and not in your control,
Try again.
When it strikes fears -
of failure, of success,
of the unknown, you won't know
how it be will unless you
Try again.
When you don't think
you have enough strength,
stamina or smarts,
when you're ready to
cover your head,
Try again.
When others are telling you
that you can't but
there is a little voice inside
saying "you can",
Try again.
When you tried one
or one hundred times
the ...

Let It Take Shape

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, February 5, 2010, In : Spiritual 
It has no shape right now
it's just sits, it needs your inspiration
and you look at it,
wondering where to start.
How do you mold it?
What can you do to give it shape?
So you take hold
work on it, using your hands
to make it something special.
You take a break,
look at it with different eyes,
start over sometimes,
but you keep working.
Making it beautiful,
making it your own.
It takes shape,
it gains personality,
it is yours.
No one can change it
quite like you can.
No one can shape it

I can

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, February 4, 2010, In : Spiritual 
You can do anything
you set your mind to do
your focus getting you going
there is nothing
that can stand in your way
unless you allow it to happen
When you say "I'm too old", "I can't",
"I won't even try",
then your mind says "You're right"
and nothing happens.
But when you say
"I can do the work",
"I can do it", "I can make it happen",
your mind says "Okay!"
and gets to work helping you!
It will come up with creative,
ingenious ways to lead you
to accomplish your goals.
Wow!  You now have...

You Have All You Need

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, February 3, 2010, In : Spiritual 
There is beauty is whatever you see
what comes into focus
what you chose to look at
you can view it through clear or cloud eyes
There is value is what you experience
the joys and the sorrows
the irritations and the natural flow
all of it makes you who you are
There is life in your dreams
they just need extra attention
and a little love and care
to breathe on their own
There is determination in your soul
it may be quiet but it sits waiting
your passion will bring it out when ready
