The Paper Cup

The Paper Cup - Are you living AT CAUSE or IN EFFECT?

You're walking in your favorite park - your sanctuary. when you see this paper cup someone dropped on the ground right next to a trash can.

You have three choices:

1) Walk past unaffected

2) Get upset that someone wouldn't make the effort to throw it away properly

3) Greet the cup as an opportunity to make God's world a bit more beautiful, pick it up with loving grace and place it in the trash knowing someone else will now enjoy a cleaner park.

Additionally, you've done so with the compassion of those whose job it is to keep the park clean knowing they have one less cup to pick up.

One of the themes within my book is choosing to live in effect (option 2) or at cause (option 3). This applies to most every aspect of your life, especially in your language. Be aware of the words you use to describe your life- daily and overall. They create your reality!!!

Life is a series of choices. You can drop your trash on your self and others, or be considerate, even uplifting. The choice is yours alone to make throughout your journey each day. ❤



Amy speaks from her heart and absolute truth. This is the theme of my book but it is the very transformational journey she has begun just a few weeks ago. It is a blessing and amazing to witness such monumental changes in a person's life.

There is genuine hope for anyone who is ready and willing to face their deepest fears from a place of love and compassion. 

They always say..."You have to love yourself first and then you'll find true love and happiness, etc etc...

But for me I thought I did love myself...what I didn't realize is that all of us lose parts of ourselves along the way and sometimes even get lost and buried by the things we all go through such as pain, loss, hurt or disappointment and sometimes even for reasons we're not aware, we lose our true self. But once we're able to find ourself again...our "true authentic self", the person we were meant to be...the past that had come to bury and mask the real us will slowly fade away making everything become clearer and clearer.

Then not only do all the things you long for and desire become possible and attainable but you start to enjoy and appreciate the journey as much as the destination...even the things you once looked at as the "bad stuff" or mistakes...We are all right where we need to be.

As crazy as that sounds I've come to discover it's truth and I'm thankful for the teachings and inspirations from Guy Brilando author of "Discovering Your Authentic Truth" for helping me find my way back to me :)
