Hungry by Stephanie Hamilton

"We all HUNGER for more meaning.  Searching endlessly, and insatiably so...trying to fill the cracks that creep into our existence.  We are waiting for someone, or something to come and light up our lives, when all along WE are the solution, WE are the creation, WE ARE OUR OWN SAVIOR."

In terms of total career Olympic medals, he’s ranked … [Read more...]

Saying yes to YOU!

This week I’ve spoken with a number of people who often find they’re dealing with everyone else’s issues, while putting their own lives to one side. Living your Champagne Life fully is about being free to say ‘yes’ to YOU and your priorities (first not last) … and saying ‘thank you’ to others! Sounds simple doesn’t it? Simple, but not necessarily easy … sometimes we may find ourselves feeling trapped in situations we’ve said ‘yes’ to, when we really meant ‘no’. The cost of not saying ‘no’ or not asking for assistance Being unable to say ‘no’ or … [Read more...]
