Imprisoned within the walls of unhealthy competition, criticism, self-doubt and insecurity, are crowds of people waiting for some illustrious person, authority or event to choose them.
For some, a love interest holds the jailhouse key. For others it's a career opportunity, title, status, money or accolade. The prisoners believe that being chosen will prove their talent, loveability or enoughness. They are certain that happiness is on the other side of being picked.
Who or what must select you for you to finally feel good enough, successful or complete?

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much are a few sentences worth when the words give you hope, opportunity and empowerment, both at work in your personal life? That’s what I hoped to find out by interviewing a new member to “The BROO,” Cynthia Occelli.
Cynthia’s blog, “LIFE: It isn’t for the faint of heart,” (http://www.cynthiaoccelli.com/), is filled with a multitude of relatable life lessons that, Cynthia says come straight from what she has learned herself, throughout her own journeys in life.
I first discovered her blog on one of my regular visits to BlogCatalog.... Read More
Let Me Qualify That!
‘I’m a failure!’
I used to say this quite frequently. I would look back over my life and ask myself just what had I accomplished? Had I realized even one of the dreams I held so dear as a child? But then, one day, I had a revelation.
So what were my dreams? What had I hoped to do with my life?
First and foremost I always wanted to be a writer. To me, being a writer meant having a best seller – being a household name, like Stephen King, or Dean Koontz. Well, it never happened. However I did have a piece of my work published. I took part in an... Read More
I always considered space to be the only frontier and not the last. For this reason, I gleefully soaked up every space or alien TV show (rather than Westerns) that shot its cathode rays across the living room. I was born in the mid-70's, which put me in the middle of Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Deep Space Nine and Voyager would come later but by the time they splashed across my TV screen I was mind deep in the X-Files.
I was always excited by the star hopping, planet busting, warp speed pushing and incredible manipulation of time fare that Star Trek offered up. Star... Read More
His song expressed the dream of every child, including African children, born in smoke-filled huts in rural villages, who hoped one day to live a kingly life in the city holding a top government, or corporate job including that of president of their country. I wasn't immune to such dreams. I was born and raised in a small village in a remote part of Zambia, Africa. Dr David Livingstone crossed the Lwangwa River near this village in 1874 on his last trip to Africa. Illiteracy was 100 per cent. No wonder Dr Livingstone called Africa "the dark continent."
But missionaries who followed... Read More
While many believed I was a bible thumper this is not true and was the cause of some misinterpretations. So ... to bring some clarity to my writings let me rewrite my case in more secular language. My name is Katherina Alexandra Christensen. I am a lawyer and raised Catholic in Chicago where I was born. Right now I am employed as a policy analyst and lawyer for an international think tank in California. Sonia Choquette was my first spiritual teacher on the recommendation of fellow classmates in university. Her work overall is meant and designed to help people tune into a natural intuitive...
