August 5 2013 Inspiration Newsletter

"Be clear in your intentions and the Universe will rise to meet you where you are."

-Oprah Winfrey

Hey Inspired readers! I hope this Newsletter is arriving when you need it most.

It's August 2013, right in the middle of the wackiest weather summer I've ever known. I'm in Chicago and I am reminded of Seattle, Washington, or England, UK by our skies. How is the weather where you are? Tell me more in the forum thread "Where are you and how is the weather?", .

I just returned from an East Coast road trip with my 3 little girls. We drove from Illinois to Georgia (no stops in Indiana or Tennessee except for rest stops and gas. Loved Serenbe, a self-sustaining community. Quaint and lush.), to North Carolina (missed the waterfalls but, loved Charlotte's South End), to Washington D.C. (walked and drove around looking for the White House for a couple of hours. Finally, the city got dark and they lit the big house. Only then, did we realize we had been right there all along), to New York (frozen hot chocolates, Lady Liberty, Central Park, and Times Square. Next time I'll show the girls SoHo, Long Island, and Niagara Falls.), Massachusetts (Boston Strong - by far my favorite stop. We wish we had the time to stop in Connecticut.), Montreal, Quebec, CA, (loved the mountains and Old Town), to Toronto, Ontario, CA (skipped Ottawa and Niagara Falls this time because New York sucked up our funds. Loved Yorkville in Toronto; my first time hanging out there.) to Illinois (next time we will include Michigan).

On my travels, I met many women that were experiencing the same Spiritual pull I have been experiencing. And a knowing that it is time for action.

This month's article, Success or Failure, speaks to that. It is a nudging to analyze your fear and do something.

Success and Failure
The fear of failure renders many of us stagnant in the pursuit of our dreams. The fear of success holds a handsome lot us hostage as well. By defining failure and success we can minimize the fear and begin our pursuit.
