I Am…

I AM…poster above is from SendOutCards, but you can make it yourself ~ add your name,  your own I AM ____ etc.  You can even change the feather and seal below…I left them there because I thought they were cute…but you can make it however you wish.

But I AM is not just about the poster above, the sentences we wrote the other day nor about the cards from yesterday.  I AM is a movie produced by a man named Tom Shadyac who was featured on Oprah.  Below is the link to read about Tom’s movie and what he learned about I AM…


Tom’s movie was released in 2011…but you can still watch it on DVD or even rent it on Amazon for as little as $4…I have yet to watch it myself, but it’s one more thing on my To Do list…

Click on the image above and you can watch the movie yourself!  I’d love to hear what you think of it once you see it!  Have you seen it already?

Just thought I’d share a bit of I AM…

Happy Sunday to YOU!


I AM…bringing happiness to others!

What’s wrong with our world, and what can we do about it?

Yesterday’s blog posted a favorite quote from Tom Shadyac whom you might be familiar with as he’s recently been on OWN (Oprah Winfrey’s Network) with his movie entitled I AM.  If not, see below and read more about this inspiring fellow…

What he discovered revolves around three key concepts that are explored in I Am:
1. It is scientifically proven that the entire human race is connected.
2. It is human nature to be cooperative rather than competitive.
3. If you don’t do what your heart wants you to do and follow your passion, it will destroy you.

Below I am adding a link for you to SEE him on his official trailer for his documentary entitled:  I AM which attempts to answer the above questions.

I dare not say more today as I think this is such an amazing learning experience that I will not even begin to write on it yet…if ever.  But I wanted to share it with those of you who maybe hadn’t yet heard of it and to those who have, but haven’t had a chance to check it out ~

Here is your gift of the day.


A Little HOPE (Helping Other People Everyday) goes a Long Way!


Last week’s post about Hope gave birth to today’s since when I was looking in SendOutCards and wrote HOPE as a search word, this one popped up!

I don’t want you to think that this blog is all about surviving breast cancer, because although it’s a theme throughout because it is what I’ve experienced the last 10 years, it’s also about Hope, Life, and this Journey of Endurance that we all share ~ and we are all on this journey together…we are all connected.

Giving another person Hope is a gift that is priceless…there are no words to describe how Hope can change everything…for me, there is something magical in that simple word…HOPE.

HOPE ~ Helping Other People Everyday!

Say it with me…HOPE…do you feel it?  Doesn’t it just sound happy, releasing, sunshiny…dare I say, HOPEFUL?

I wake up every morning grateful that I am here and I enjoy whatever my day has to offer me.

I am determined to see the best that I can, to be grateful for each and every moment and to enjoy The Presents of Presence (yes pun intended!)

I HOPE you will join me in our Journey of Endurance together and leave a comment when something touches your heart.  I heard from a friend this week who told me that she had to reapply her makeup after reading one of my blogs ~ happy tears…and it made my heart sing!

“To hope is to risk frustration. Therefore, make up your mind to risk frustration.” ~ Thomas Merton

I HOPE you enjoy my blogging…and I HOPE that your every wish comes true in 2012!   And most importantly, I hope you HOPE and enjoy it!
