The world is a busy place with lots of activity, noise, and sights.  It is a constant carnival of competing attractions. Wherever you stand, it begs your attention. But your heart and your life are your own to guide.

When you cultivate centeredness in the protection of your home or place of sanctuary, you may cultivate it elsewhere as well. It is a task well worth your time and effort. The rewards of cultivating centeredness in all you do are valuable to pursue.


A basic biography should highlight the most important points of your career. It should be easy to read and capture the image and credentials you want to project. Always get right to the point, and do not use fluff or padding. The goal is to get people interested in who you are and what you do, not to bore them. Below is a sample; Sandra Smith is a fictional character.

Sandra Smith received her training and certification from the Holistic Yoga Institute of New York. She has advanced training in Pre-Natal instruction and in Pilates. Sandra began practicing yoga in 1990, while attending Mason Gross School of the Arts in New Brunswick, NJ. After graduating with her Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art, she traveled to California to deepen her practice and study at the Ashanda Ashram. In addition to yoga instruction, Sandra has taught art and craft classes to troubled children.

Formulating a goal, pursuing it, and making it happen is an ongoing process. It is something you do because you want to do it, not because you should do it. Forget about the “should.” Focus on the aspiration.

When we do something because we think we “should” do it, it lacks fulfillment and satisfaction. When we do something because we want to do it, it gives us a true sense of purpose.

You will more likely triumph in your endeavors when you feel enthusiastic about what you are doing. Lack of desire and commitment equals failure. Eagerness and dedication equal success.
