Different Doesn't Mean Deficient
861

Young children are the future of tomorrow.  It's important for them to understand that no matter how different they may be from others, that their lives matter. 
As parents we have a responsibility to teach our children about the power of kindness. It's also important to teach them that it takes all types of people to make the world a special place.

Teaching children about the need to respect others that they see as different is a very important role we have as parents. Teaching them to embrace their own uniqueness is just as important. We must teach them while the are young, as we as helping them shapes their ideas about the world.

You Help Create Your Realities Based on How You Think
2268

Florence Scovill said that the game of life is a game of boomerangs, our thoughts, words and deeds return to us with amazing accuracy.  In order words, "as a man thinketh, so shall in be (Solomonic Law).

Therefore we must be militant about what we choose to think about as it relates to ourselves and others. Think poorly about someone else and you think receive just what you thought about. Mindful living allows us to be co-creators in the life that we desire. So therefore, we must control our minds; be the diligent rider and do not let your mind be the wild untamed, unguided elephant.

Turn Your Idea Into an Objective Reality
2408

Everything starts with an idea. Sometimes we fail to believe in our ideas. Is it because we don't believe enough in ourselves and our capabilities? In order for an idea to become an objective reality, it requires us to work meticulously and consistently each day until we have accomplished whatever we intended too.

We must not only be dreamers but also doers. We must not only have faith but we must be good stewards and do the work to accomplish what we set out to achieve.

Being Bitter Taints The Human Soul
2396
The most difficult people to deal with are people that are bitter. Bitter people see things very negatively and somewhat blame others for their past and current life situations. Of course, we encounter situations in our lives that are not favorable and they cause us to be angry. The key is not staying in that state day-after-day, month- after- month and year- after-year. It's important when unfavorable things happen in our lives that we truly access the situations objectively and occassionallly ask, what did this come to teach.

There's Greatness in You and Me- Discover Yours!
1870
I'm often asked about my life, and how did I get the courage to find my purpose. Sometimes I chuckle because some believe it's because I'm a workaholic. Some think that I'm very disciplined and although this may bear truth, I know that my strength comes from God. It's that simple! Do I do the work- Yes, because "faith without work is dead." But I rely solely on the direction of God and I diligently seek after him for guidance. Please click on the link to listen.

Candid Conversation With My Son Elijah
2281
For years you've listen to me talk about the joys of motherhood and one of the things I often said is how I wished that I had a home filled with children that I could raise. My only child, Elijah, is an absolute joy, he's now 16 and what I look forward to the most is the long conversations I have with him each day. Here's your chance to listen in while I speak with him about the things that he loves the most in his life.

Recalculating Your Life
1894
"Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler." - Henry David Thoreau. Often times when we feel like nothing is working right in our lives, this is the time to stop and we must recalculate the direction that we are heading. Of course, in life we'll veer of course but we must try never to get to a dead end. How can we do this well? Please click on the podcast to listen.

What's My Purpose-Ways One Can Discover Their True Gifts
3634
I'm often asked how did I discover what my gifts were and how did I decide when to use these gifts? In the beginning I found this question to be deeply personal but as I grew more aware of the fact that our lives are given to serve a greater purpose, I became deeply committed to share my story in a truthful way so that perhaps it would help someone along the way. In this podcast, I'm discussing very candidly about how I was able to find me and what this journey was like. Thank you for listening, I hope you can discover your own gifts and use them for the glory of the one who bestows the gifts on each and everyone of us.

Living Mindfully And Using Your "Authentic Power" Which Comes From Your Spirit
1244
It's in moments of contemplation when I shut out the world and spend quiet time, whether it's in nature or in "my closet space" is when I can truly hear the gentle, yet convincing voice from within. Truly "greater is He who's within us" and we are only able to recognize and connect with this greatness when we learn to be still and to listen. Join me on this podcast as I speak about the tripartite self and how I've learned about the power of operating in spirit.

The Power of Forgiveness
1302
"Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violets shed on the heels that have crushed it." Have you been crushed by "heels" that you never expected to be crushed by? Have you been violated by others? Have you been lied about? When wrong is done to you how do you react? Do you bottle all the emotions that you feel or do you lash out? And though I understand it's natural to try to defend ourselves from the attacks of others, we must realize that for the most part when people try to do us wrong they are in many ways, doing wrong to the false construct that they have about us. If you look at it that way it's easy to forgive. Have you noticed how it's so easy for some people to hate someone they never had a personal contact/relationship with? Again realize they are only hating a notion, an idea, and in many ways they are showing us how troubled the are inside. What we must do is to live in peace-this peace comes from a spirit that does not harbor ill-will, a spirit of love; and love conquers all things.

Love is Light- Light Chases The Darkness Away
1233
Love is the world in which the Divine Spirit lives. The greatest world known to sages of all times, the world of which Christ speaks, is the world of Love. And when we say that God is Love, we understand that Love is the essence from which all things proceed. All worlds, through all eternity, have come forth and shall come forth from the source of Love. Everything in the world lives in Love and by Love. Everything that we see - stellar systems, suns, planets - all are manifestations of Love. The entire cosmos in its completeness, the whole physical world is Love, manifested and materialized. This is the great "body of God". Outside of Love, we do not know God. Love is connected with all living beings. There is not a living being - there is no living matter - that is not influenced in one way or another by Love, that is not closely connected with it. God, who is Love, is not only outside us, in the universe, but within us also. He is the living bond between all that is "without" and "within". Love- By Peter Deunov

Living in Your Authentic Purpose -Episode 53
1347
Why were your created? What's your purpose? If you are so beautifully and intricately designed it must be in order for you to fulfill a purpose. When we examine the lives of great people even in biblical days we see a pattern; God had predestined their paths and gave them unique assignments. Even non believers tell you that they started truly living when they understood their unique assignment. Why did God choose David to slaughter Goliath when David had brothers who were fighters and had more experience in warfare than him? Why did he choose Esther, a woman who was raised without a mother and father? Why would he chose Moses who had a speech impediment. I believe each one of us have a unique calling, it up to us to find out what it is and stop doing what we see others are doing. Live in your most authentic self.

"The Cookie Thief- Episode 52
809
We all have been "Cookie Thieves" at one point or the other in our lives. Sadly we are so unaware of how much we are often wrong about something yet we are equally convinced that we are right at the same time. Perception is reality for the most part but our perception can often be distorted. Please click on the link below to listen to this episode.

The Two Wolves in All of Us- Which One Will You Feed?
1104
Sometimes we suffer at the hands of people that we trust and the sad reality is the fact that they appear to not even be remorseful for what they have done to us, instead they are careless enough to shift the blame to us. When we have been violated, we often have a mix of emotions, and sometimes we are confronted with the two wolves that are within each and every one of us. The question is however, which wolf will we feed? Realize that we control the nutrients, thus allow life to continue for the wolf that we chose-it's our decision to make! If we try to feed both wolves a lack of emotional equilibrium will happen and will cause us to go very often of a heck of an emotional roller coaster ride. Which wolf are you feeding?

Episode 49- The Search for Enlightenment or the Lack Thereof
1830
The images that we see everyday help shape the ideas we have about ourselves, our world and others. It's important that we step out of our comfort zones and begin to look at things from different perspectives- that's when we can become enlightened. We must thirst for the truth and refuse to believe in the watered-down ideas that some people have about life and other pivotal aspects of living. If we constantly see the same "shadows" day after day although they maybe phantoms we very likely may come to believe that they are real- that's why it's important to escape our "cave" and step outside to see the light!

What Brings Happiness- My Insights!
1944
Perhaps happiness comes when one has good balance in their lives? Johnathan Haidt said that we need to control the untamed, irrational elephant and that the rider and the elephant must have balance. He uses the metaphor of elephant and rider to explain the duality in our thinking. Perhaps happiness comes from one's realization that they are enough, no matter what chapter and circumstances they maybe in? Is it possible that happiness truly comes from within but also recognizing that some external factors could affect how happy one is? Oh, this old ancient question about what is happiness and how can happiness be achieved still exist today, and many are trying to find answers. In this podcast I will share with you how I maintain balance in my life and find my own contentment.

My Journey In America
2173
Is perception reality? Perhaps all you see on social media may not be the ultimate truth yet it lures so many to a land that could be very unforgiving. I'm often asked about my journey into The United States. In this podcast I will give you some answers and perhaps allow you to see things differently or perhaps you may not!

"A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step." Lao Tzu- we have began that exciting journey. Let's have conversation about the nanny community and nanny life because perhaps "what you think you know for sure might not be so."

Lost Podcast Episode
948
Life happens, right? Sometimes we are inundated with deadlines or the everyday challenges of life that in the process we fail to meet deadlines and so forth. This is the case with Episode 40 of my podcast-I simply didn't realize that I neglected to set the episode to automatically go live on April 16! Instead of tossing it out I'll use this lost episode to carry the message that we should always complete what we have started. Did you start a project 5 years ago that's just sitting there? Did you start a book, a crochet outfit, whatever it is, go bad and revisit it. Give it life again by finding that passion you had for it when you started. Don't ever give up on your dreams-it's never too late. Live in awareness, bask in kindness, have eyes that see no differences and a heart that loves divinely.

Nouvel Episode 37- Thank you for listening!
681
Mother Theresa said "'I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples." Often times we need to ask ourselves whether we have "cast our own stones" to create positive "ripple effects" in humanity especially for marginalized people. This question often provoke my own consciousness and causes me to ponder. Thank you for supporting my work. Please visit my upgraded website at www.mynannycircle.com and join the conversation; be part of a great community.

Episode 35- The Importance of Focusing on the Journey and not the Destination
1323
T.S.Elliott said that it's "the journey not the destination that matters." We often create so much stress in our lives because we become fixated with the destination and neglect to appreciate the value of the journey of life. We obsess about reaching the end, not realizing that along the journey there's so much to learn to better equip ourselves with what it takes to be optimal when we get to our destination. Consider that even God himself created everything and each day he said that "it was good". He too appreciated the journey of creation. Have a wonderful new year!

Episode 30- Are you Burying Your Talents?
1844
Are you running away from your talents? Have you discovered your own talents? Are your talents driven intrinsically or are you eyeing someone else's talents trying to do what they are doing. Remember the parable of the five talents where Jesus likened the kingdom of God to a master who was going on a journey and called his servants in to give them talents. Realize that he didn't give them the same amount of talents. Discover your true self and you will find your talents.

Depression and Other Mood Disorders
1464
We all have times when we feel discouraged. A job loss, loss of an important relationship and bereavement to name just a few, will cause us to feel defeated and sad. However, major depression is serious and can affect the quality of life for the individual, their friends and families. Although mood and mental disorders are seldom talked about for fear of being "labeled" we must continue to have an honest and open dialogue about these very important topics.

Acknowledging the Presence and Majesty of the Great Divinity!
1131
When we slow down and enjoy the simple things around us, we are often blessed with the deeper meaning of some aspects of life itself. Recognizing the power of the Great Divinity is humbling and reminds me of how minute we are in the grand scheme of things. Picture the highest heights and the vastness of the great oceans and then realize that all of this was fashioned by an energy that's greater than the mortal man.

Setting Goals

Goals guide and direct behavior. Goal-setting is powerful if used effectively. In setting goals one must be motivated intrinsically, meaning that the goals must be your own desired visions and not those of others.

Gender Equality- Episode 23
723
"I've seen young men suffering from mental illness unable to ask for help for fear it would make them look less "macho"- in fact in the UK suicide is the biggest killer of men between 20-49 years of age; eclipsing road accidents, cancer and coronary hear disease. I've seen men made fragile and insecure by a distorted sense of what constitutes male success" Emma Watson

1282
You have been asking me, "how do you stay motivated to working out?" . The simple and honest answer is that, I love to exercising and now understand the health benefits associated with exercising.

Rejecting Solipsism & Being More Aware- Episode 22
567
We live in an individualistic society where everything seems to be about "I" . Because of the over- indulgence with one's feelings and desires often times we fail to realize that we are a part of a greater community. This over- indulgence and preoccupation with self leads to distorted realities, because we are oblivious to what's going on around us. Hey...we live in a great big world..if you are oblivious..you might ask.."what the heck is that?". WAKE UP!!

It's ok to ask for what you want
682
In the beginning of the year, it's usually the time, that families and nannies meet to discuss various aspects of the job. This is the time that salary increases are negotiated and product recommendations are made. This is a good time to revisit the contracts and ensure everything that was agreed on is documented. This is all part of creating a healthy work relationship and ultimately a happy home.

How do I attract the right woman? A man's dilemma ..episode 19
1349
When we telescope into the writings of great theologians and philosophers who wrote about love, there's one common theme..that love is free and not selfish in its very nature. We have altered the meaning of this unconditional love, because often times, it's not coming from the authentic self. Instead, it very often has stipulations, judgments and its mere fabrics are woven with superficial threads. Is that love?

Love, Relationship, Dating and Sex!
1705
People are asking constantly how can I attract the right person in my life? To love one ought to know the true source of love..God himself! To love others we must be able to love ourselves not in a narcissistic way but in a divine way. A way that encourages us to share that love with others, our universe and ultimately a life partner. When I'm in love the sun rays seem brighter and more colorful, the birds sing with more melody and the nakedness of my heart unveils itself out of its cocoon; exposing something beautiful, something unique, something pleasurable; something orgasmic!.

The term helicopter parents or "snowplough" parents are usually the overly-protective parents that constantly hoover over their children. the fail to recognize health boundaries and this results in unnecessary conflicts with the caregiver.

Cultivating good friendships

We are social beings and we have an innate need to commune and to be a part of a social group and family unit. We can all have and develop healthy friendships that could be very rewarding.

Sometimes we just need to take some "me" time
478
Our bodies tell us when we've had enough. We fail to listen at times and instead continue with all the everyday demanding task and deadlines. Often times if we would only relax for a few minutes, take a power nap, visit the parks and enjoy the tranquil scenery we would not only feel better but also be more productive.

Caregivers can teach children fundamental life skills and values
660
A good caregiver can enrich the lives of the children that are entrusted in her care by teaching them fundamental life skills and values. The parents and the caregiver must have harmony as it relate to rules, values and boundaries. John Locke said that kids are born like a "tabula rasa" (blank slate) and that their experiences, environment, parents and caregivers help shape behavior and ultimately who they become as adults.

Collectively we can make a difference in a needy child's life. Never forget where you came from; your unique story may be the bedrock to impact positive change in another person's life. Christ himself modeled this very well for us..He prayed for others; he fed them; he healed them..what can we do to the least among us?

Defining yourself...episode 9
753
Today, we have so many people who are simple miserable. They are living their lives consumed by what others think of them. Many feel trapped in a life that's unrewarding yet they are afraid of change; not because they can't change their situation but they are emotionally handicapped because of the fear of what others may say.....Wake up...add a little lipgloss...dust your clothes..straighten your back; maybe put some heels on and LIVE!!!!!!! Why should the opinions of others matter?????????
