Dictionary.com displays 9 different definitions for the word, "vision". For the sake of this blog entry, I'm going with the second one which reads, "2. the act or power of anticipating that which WILL or may come to BE."

Over the years, I have learned that the words "focus" and "vision" are interchangeable, and that the two combined are imperative, in order that there be "sight". I must admit, that there have been times in my life, when my lack of "focus", has caused me to lose "sight" of my "vision", which ultimately resulted in nothing. I can say with pride, today, I am much stronger now (smile).

The past few weeks have been very emotionally trying for me, and have required my full attention. One of my two month old twins, is going through the experience of a certain medical condition. This condition has been pulling my husband and I in several directions. Nonetheless, our family is secure in the belief, "and this too shall pass". I am purposefully omitting details regarding this experience, here, in order to minimize the power behind it. We envision perfect health for Zen, and remain fixated on that. Can I get a right on ??!!

It is often, so easy, to lose focus when the things around us do not seem favorable. In an imperfect world, we can expect to suffer loss, disappointment, tragedy, misfortunes etc. Although each of these things have a tendency to weaken the will of our spirit (if we allow them to), we must be mindful that, given the power, they also have the potential to keep us at a distance from our goal (s).

I say, THE SHOW MUST GO ON! Please join me for my SHOW PREMIERE, Fri. February 6th. It will be broadcast, "LIVE", beginning at 8 pm pacific time/11 pm eastern.
