New Beginnings

A little piece of us dies every day. From our very cells to pieces of our heart forever changed by the pains and challenges of yesterday.

The other side of that truth is everything is reborn again. Everything. It is in our details. Our perceptions. Our truths. Every day a part of us is brand new.

Each moment brings a new beginning. It was my mother Enid’s final chapter and my son Nixon first, that I found this truth. As the anxiety ridden yesterday is gone, this morning I awoke with very specific words resounding in my soul.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.

Enid and David

Enid and her brother David.

Enid had purposefully chosen this poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye and carefully hidden in a place where she knew only the person who needed the message most and the person who could carry and deliver her message would find it.

I found it. I was momentarily stunned, as I knew exactly what I was reading and why. There were no directions with the poem. I simply knew. Through hot and salty tears, a feeling of being cool and refreshed began to ease the pain in my heart just a bit. 

I am a thousand winds that blow.

The epitome of class and timeless beauty.  Enid on her wedding day

The epitome of class and timeless beauty. Enid on her wedding day

These words are boundless and at first glance seem much too large to bring comfort. As I sat outside soaking up the Vancouver sunlight and gazing at my mother’s tiny garden after she had passed, the words played over and over in my soul. I began to whisper them quietly, over and over, to my beautiful new baby boy who was eyeing me carefully as if he was sent to care for me rather than me for him.

I got it. I GOT IT! Each moment brings a new beginning. Love, energy, and intention never die. WE are one and we are all an active part of all things. Whether our outside physical carriage is gone, our chassis … our internal framework is entirely intact and perfectly aligned with infinite energy.

Do not stand at my grave and cry.  I am not there.  I did not die.

Lennox, Enid, Nixon, & Alex

Lennox, Enid, Nixon, and me. 12 days later she would be gone. Look at her smile. Magnificent!

You are alive! Carpe Diem! Rise today and smile a smile you have never smiled. Help one more person. Let one tiny argument go. Let angst have a go at itself today while you lean into the wind. While I miss my mom every day and my journey sometimes brings me to my knees, I have learned to say  “thank you” while I’m down there because as soon a I get up, I know my gait will be refreshed, renewed, and reborn.

Today, I am thankful for the wind. It spreads seeds so they can grow new food, flowers, plants, and life. The wind cools you on the hottest of days and if you listen carefully, you may your hear angels joyfully singing of all you believe you have lost. The song can fill your heart and restore your faith.  Today, I am thankful for each person who reaches out to me with a quest for hope. You restore me every day. You, many times, ARE my wind.  You are my angels.

I will set out for today’s adventure with Nixon with the wind in my heart and the sun on my face. I bet something spectacular is waiting for us to discover. Gotta go! Gotta get there! I know the same gift is waiting for you. Open you heart and close your mouth! All you are wishing for is already here.

Here is Mary Elizabeth Frye’s poem, Enid’s gift to me, and my family. Our gift to you.

"Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep" ~ Mary Elizabeth Frye

“Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep” ~ Mary Elizabeth Frye


I can #Dream again … So can you! #DreamFearlessly

I knew I’d survive, after all, I always have.  I knew I’d live, after all, I always have.  I just didn’t know if I would live in Technicolor again nor if I’d ever DREAM again.  Now I know…  It’s better than a dream!  It’s my reality.  I’ve earned it.  So have you.  If you are still in the midst of your “night”…HOLD ON!! The sun will rise and so will your heart.  I’m with you every step of the way and living proof that it’s sweeter than ever, when you’ve consciously been an active participant on your journey.
Email me if your are having trouble believing!
Dream Again


Ah things ain’t what they used to be, no no
Where did all the blue skies go?

Marvin Gaye’s timeless Mercy, Mercy Me lyrics gently ring true with many mothers. How quickly life can take us full of hope and big dreams and into a pool of desperation so deep, we find ourselves swimming to get out. Have you been a mother who thought your marriage would last, but it fell apart and now you are in a situation that you have not imagined? Do you find you are struggling, holding on to each day, worried what the next would bring? Do you miss the days that you were full of hope, aspiration and big dreams? Alexandra Wright knows your pain and she can tell you first hand, she has been there.

Poison is the wind that blows from the north and south and east
Woo mercy, mercy me, mercy father

As a single mom, Alexsandra had lost everything through court battles and child support challenges. Each day was filled with unfamiliar worries of getting her son the bare necessities. She worried about what tomorrow would bring. In quiet moments, she ruefully thought of her previous career as a high powered branding executive and slowly put together strategy to return. As she sat amongst other mothers, children, and families who had lost everything, she never lost hope that she would survive, but definitely wondered if she would ever LIVE again. More over….would she ever DREAM again? Once she pulled herself out of poverty and pulled away from “surviving” chronicled here, she began to breathe in life once again and he heart swirled with joy that that she too could and would dream again.

How much more abuse from man can she stand?
Oh, na na…
My sweet Lord… No
My Lord… My sweet Lord

Alexsandra attests “Once we can clear the dense fog of toxic people, recurring bad habits, relationships, and  self doubt, we can truly manifest what we truly desire and the infinite abundance available to all of us.  Whether it is our family, our faith, or our goals, we can focus on each piece of our destiny and bring them to life. It’s about clearing the path of negativity and focusing on what you truly want out of life. Essentially, what we have learned from her, is to visualize and conceptualize. Visualize the dream you want, take the concept, and produce simple action items. Tackle each one at a time and keep track of your victories!  Make it happen! Channel your hope, faith and fortitude and DREAM again.”


“The POWER to MANIFEST our hearts desire begins within our HEARTS. During the dark times, our heart merely beats to pump blood and keep us alive. As the dawn comes and the cloak of the night lifts, so will your heart. You WILL live again. You WILL dream again… I know… I’m living it!” ~ Alexsandra Wright.

Alexsandra now can say that she is building her dream of Motivating Other Mothers globally. Check with her website for updated manifestations, inspiration and wisdom. Most recently, she is working with Marvin Gaye III and his phenomenal wife Wendy on a new project called “Rise Up” that will inspire change for all of us. ‘Rise Up” teams up with many wonderful organizations and charities that will double the efforts to give back in every meaningful way. We all need a hand and this team, will be reaching around the world to help. Alexsandra wants you to turn yourself back to manifesting your dreams, so you can look back at your past life and say “Ah things ain’t what they used to be” and feel good about it.

“The opportunities, the people and the joy in my life have only grown by leaps and bounds. My career has flourished into more than I have dared to dream before and the freedom of letting go of the shackles from yesterday allow me to soar to new heights.  I’ve opened offices in Beverly Hills and am working with a true Dream Team.  Nixon is thriving and happy.   I am LIVING! I am DREAMING! I am LOVING. I have never felt better.” Alexsandra Wright

#AlexSandra #Christmas Spotlight Motivating Other Mothers

Motivating Other Mothers


“I am worthless, I am a horrible Mother, I don’t know how to move on with my kids after my divorce.” These are some of the cries for help that Alexsandra Wright hears every day from Mothers who are desperate for someone, anyone to listen to their story. Alexsandra is a Mother with great passion and dedication to motivating other Mothers. She is an executive with vast experience in PR, branding and strategic marketing (to name a few). Her impressive resume does not only have big named celebrities and business people to attest to her excellent work, but also the voices of over 2000 Mothers and children in 2014 alone, thanking Alexsandra for anything from finding them a home to getting their Mother a new career. This is a woman who knows how to give back to people who need it the most. How can she handle such a large, diverse cliental? Her empire, her movement, Motivating Other Mothers, is dedicated to changing the way Mothers see themselves.


Transcending To Grace

Alexsandra knows the fear of a Mother’s desperation all too well. When she had given birth to Nixon, her handsome little boy, there was a controversy. Alexsandra had a long term relationship with a high profiled celebrity who was, at the time, married. Though Alexsandra takes accountability for her part in this, when she gave birth to little Nixon, something changed.
When Nixon was born, Alexsandra, “transcended anything human. I understood what love and responsibility was. This gift of this little human being to me is something that I am so grateful for every day. He (Nixon) is a better person than me, he is smarter than me, he brought healing to me and my entire family. He was delivered to me, perfect.”

Alexsandra remembers after bringing little Nixon home for the first time that “Golden Slumbers” a series of lullabies by Dave Koz was playing. A soft jazz version of “Isn’t She (and he) Lovely was playing and she held her little boy in her arms and began to weep tears of joy. She was humbled. She was overwhelmed. She felt so much gratitude. She had transcended. Little Nixon will be loved and protected. He will get a chance to grow and be nurtured in peace. Every Mother, like Alexsandra, has one moment where everything in the world is secondary to the gift that is their child.

Anchoring In Muddy Waters


With a little baby, Alexsandra had gone for public assistance. She had very little. She sat in the classroom that was mandated to learn how to construct a resume. In the classroom of the frustrated and unemployed, she realized something. The facilitator of this mandatory class for those on public assistance was extremely motivated to help. The class full of those who required the assistance, were not. Many of them were single Mothers. They made the facilitators job a difficult one, but Alexsandra sensed the frustration of the Mothers and worse, she saw the facilitator lose her hope in helping these people get on their feet again. Alexsandra knew that she could help these Mothers. That, in her state of loss, she wanted to help others who felt like they had nothing. She packed up anything in her house that she was not using, old clothes of her own and some that her son had out grew and started giving away her things to these Mothers. One Mother in particular, struck a chord with Alexsandra. A twenty year old single Mother had a four year old child and was getting a divorce. She loved fashion but had no formal education. This young Mom had convinced herself that she would not amount to anything. It dawned on Alexsandra that this young girl would be a great product ambassador. Astonished, the young girl applied and got a job. She got off public assistance. If Alexsandra could inspire one Mother to reach her full potential and get off public assistance, why not more? Why not all of them?


Instead of fearing this difficult time of poverty and loss, she decided to firmly plant her feet into it. She created Motivating Other Mothers, a website dedicated to helping Moms with all problems by teaching Moms to motivate each other. She started working at the DA’s office and went back to her previous career in branding. However, her passion is families. She can only remember the peace she felt holding little Nixon that first night with that sweet lullaby playing in her head. She had her purpose. She had a voice, then it was time to fly.

I became a mother and lost a mother in one year

With great sadness, Alexsandra was blessed with Motherhood and had her own Mother had passed away. Thankfully, Alexsandra’s Mother had gotten to see her little baby Nixon, but time is short. Alexsandra’s family is a great one and the glue that held it all together was her Mother. Alexsandra had such a good Mother she had planted a seed of strength in Alexsandra and now Alex takes this power and wants to harvest it with not only her precious son, but Mothers everywhere.
Cradling the Seed

“I am present for each part, every victory or defeat, I was seeing everyone around me and I poured love, energy, passion and learning into other people, especially mothers and children.”

Alexsandra continued helping everyone who wanted it, from her celebrity Mother friends right down to a Mother she would meet on the street. She took her vast knowledge of branding and her love of social interaction and combined it with her passion, helping others. As she moved forward, she attests that we should all give back to those in need. To Alexsandra, that is the seed of true success “Move Forward, give back.”

Surface Blossom

“I am the proactive catalyst to change our existence and this defines me.”


Why are there so many women who are afraid to use their voice? Alexsandra puts it simply, “Not to victimize women, but women take a beating at every turn. The woman who works two to three jobs to keep her single parent family afloat hardly has time to spend quality time with her child.” The woman on assistance has put her children in a home where they will have to struggle for the necessities. These two situations can feel like there is nowhere to turn. Alexsandra has been there and she knows how to help.
Many women are programmed to shun confrontation and controversy. They will go out of their way to avoid it. Alexsandra attests. Even if that means not fighting for their deserved child support. It’s hard for these women to bond together because

“When you put two or three broken people together who lack faith in humanity they cannot be bonded together. It’s so hard to find value in what our life has become and stay sane.”

Rise from the Roots


Alexsandra wants to make Mothers into Spiritual Gangsters. What does that mean? For every scary, controversial thing that happens to a Mother, whether it be a divorce, a job loss, the hardships of raising children, unexpected life turns, instead of hiding, denying or collapsing into yourself, Alexsandra challenges each of you to “show up and have the gut strength to walk into the fire. You will get bumps and bruises but like a phoenix you will rise from the ashes. That is a Spiritual Gangster.”
Alexsandra is a driving force to be a beacon for the Mother who never fit in, for the Mother who does not know how to stand on her own two feet after a divorce, for the little child who deserves MORE. She will walk each painful step with you and help you join a community that cares. Motivating Other Mothers  is your light when there is darkness. Narrate your new survival story with Alexsandra, plant yourself in muddy waters and blossom.

Alexsandra is an executive, a motivator, a beacon for thousands of women already, but at the end of it all, when the day has ended, she is, most of all, a woman that consciously and wholeheartedly loves her son, and her selfless and dedicated work is testimony of that love. Join her on this game changing journey and begin the path of MOTIVATION.

Celebrate all moms with your hand crafted 14 Karat White Gold and Diamond “mommy” Necklace.

In 2009 I learned I having Nixon. I was truly one of the most magical moments of my life. I was 38 and having my first child! The same year, the exact same time, I learned my mother was dying. Nixon’s due date was projected to be February 7, 2010…my Mother’s birthday.

2010 would prove to be a year to never forget. Nixon was born…my Mother passed away. I love them both unconditionally and eternally.

I decided to commemorate the wonder and beauty of my journey by creating my own “mommy” necklace. It stands for everything associated with the honor of being a mother. It stands for the process of gaining and loosing everything simultaneously. It stands for EVERYONE who loves a child and changes the world with her love. It stands for everything I hold precious. Love. Life . Laughter. Motherhood gives my each of these every day. 

I chose lower case letters to symbolize humility. I chose cursive script to symbolize the connection and every evolving journey. I chose diamonds and gold to symbolize a solid foundation, ever lasting love, and of course, to symbolize that becoming a mother makes you even more fabulous than ever!

It was sheer kismet when I met Ms. Gale Swayne, the well informed business woman behind this model of spectacular well rounded pre-school education in an enriched environment. She is the loving and compassionate proprietor of Canyon Kids Pre-School & Camp. From the moment I entered the facility, I felt at home, safe, and knew Nixon would thrive in this environment. Ms. Swayne has a fantastic track record and children enrolled in her programs benefit from a combination of learning curriculums, field trips around the neighborhood, charity work, and a “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” program. In fact, by Nixon’s third birthday, he was monitoring my recycling habits and showing me HIS flashcards as if to test my knowledge.

Canyon Kids is the spotlight community business for November because I am so THANKFUL for Ms. Swayne, her staff, and her family. Canyon Kids went above and beyond to meet our family’s special needs of privacy and security while the other children, families were still equally as important, and their needs were met with expertise and agile ability. As Nixon prepares to go to “big boy school,” I will always be grateful for Ms. Swayne and Canyon Kids. She helped me begin my mom career with a solid foundation and a great head start for Nixon.

Warrior #Mom Bentley Hale ~ November Spotlight

Coco Chanel Strong Women

Taking time to celebrate and give gratitude for all the victories in life, I am always aware that we do not gain victories alone. The best journeys and results come when teamwork is involved. Whether it is friends, family, co-workers, or even strangers… we are always stronger working in harmony with others.

So many wonderful people support my efforts to help other mothers and families, that each month, #Moms Motivating Other Mothers, will highlight one spectacular MOM who is making a difference and one family owned business or charity making significant effort with in our communities.

Our MOM for November is Bentley Hale. Through my work with Safe Passage, a spectacular non-profit in California helping mothers and children out of dangerous domestic violence situations, I met Ms. Hale.

Ms. Hale, of Elevate Women Events, was single handedly heading up the enormous task of filling the CBS Backlot with a fun filled event to benefit Safe Passage and the Grossman Burn Foundation. One woman … with a softly curving belly was running the show! I immediately recognized her spirit and was amazed by her level of compassion and understanding. I was proud to meet this young, beautiful bombshell with a heart the size of the Empire State building and vision not only far beyond her years, but also far beyond living for herself. Ms. Hale possesses so many good qualities that it is a challenge to nail down just a few. It is an honor to know her.

“Elevate! Events are planned to help raise funds and awareness for various women’s charities while creating a fun and exciting atmosphere for people to come together to help support a cause. The charities we support advocate for the human rights of women and girls, and seek to empower women both globally and nationally. Proceeds from our events benefit various women’s charities we partner with.” Bentley Hale ~ Elevate! Women

Ms. Hale is expecting her first child, a daughter, in January and is recently married. Marriage gave her a blended family and she flowed gracefully into being a stand out mom.

Ms. Hale has helped so many other women and charities realize milestones that is was a cinch to say yes when she asked me to be a guest at her next event. Elevate! Women and Elevate Retreats are proud to offer its first Pregnancy and Mommy Retreat in Big Bear, California, November 14-16, 2014. Saturday night, November 15, 2014 I will be hosting the “Campfire Life Coach” event. I built a special program for this fun fireside chat. I will focus on how to push through your challenges and manifest your dreams … with a little one in tow. No matter what the press says, I never stopped dreaming, manifesting, or working. It is what has enabled my business to flourish and it has enabled me to give back to you!

Campfire Renew, Inspire & Elevate Workshop For #Moms

Indentifying challenges, fears, hopes, and dreams.

Clearing the path to our core.

Acknowledging our challenges or goals.

Confirming our intention through positive affirmations and specialized exercises.

Creating tools to manifest positive outcomes and schedule of milestones.

I am truly an honored guest, and consider myself in the company of greatness. Cheers to you Bentley Hale as Warrior MOM of the month! You change lives everyday and we salute you!


You Already Have It All

Already Have

Motivation. It’s the perfect place to begin to manifest all your dreams. Before you begin your next perfect moment, I want you to understand that you already have it all! Right now … In this moment.

Sometimes it seems as though we “lose” something everyday. I lose my car keys and my iPhone a thousand times a day. Nixon looks at me, swoops a dramatic palm to his forehead and says, “Mommmyyyyyyyyyyy, where is your phone?” I feel frantic for a moment, mostly because I’m running late, and tearing through everything surrounding me. Cursing and blaming everyone and every thing I can think of. ANYONE! To jump to the end of the daily ridiculous shenanigans, I remember this small moment is a metaphor for living. The keys are in my bag, every time. Well, unless I’ve left them in the car. Hey, judge not friend, I remembered the kid and the dog.

My frazzled and accelerated life helps me to remember not to panic. An oxymoron I know. Here’s the thing. I have keys to my home. I have keys to my car. I have my son. We both have our sense of humor and our health. I have an incredible family and an electric existence. We have each other. I haven’t lost a thing. I already have it all.

When I decided to open my life to you, it was after 4 years of silence and judgment on a global scale. If you have ever chatted with me, you know that I always say, “Meh, I’m too stupid to be afraid, thats why I can always rise from any situation.” That’s only partly true. It’s true … I rise. It’s false that I’m not afraid. I feel fear all the time. If I didn’t feel my fear, I wouldn’t know how to be fearless. I choose to move without fear. Fear hinders the greatness that is already within me and within you. I will never stand down to fear. I will always choose hope.

I pushed through the ridicule, the pain, the betrayal, the loss of friends, family, and my comfortable identity. I challenged myself to tell my truth and to open my heart to the love that already existed but I was not choosing to recognize. I chose resilience. I chose love. I chose to be with you! I discovered what I had “lost” never really “was”, and I was inspired to acknowledge the abundance that exists in my life. I already have it all.

Friend, while we critique ourselves every day and find fault with everything about ourselves, we must realize that we are right where we are supposed to be and everything we need to fulfill our destiny is already within us. Pushing through the fear, I choose love over bitterness and despair. Being harsh or hyper-critical on oneself, creates inner anguish. We then communicate from a painful place. No need to do that to yourself. Change the paradigm and your inner dialogue to one of love.

To write about myself publicly or to connect with people around the world was terrifying. Yet, there you were. You greeted me with open hearts, open minds, and boundless love. You exist. You carry me through each day. I had to let go and open my heart, face my fear and stop believing there was something wrong with me. There is nothing wrong with me, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with you. I challenge you to look at yourself honestly and lovingly. See yourself the way I see you. See the perfect human YOU. The YOU that the universe sees. Love your self the way the universe loves you. Compassionately and infinitely. Constantly renewed. Constantly forgiving.

We want MORE. We want BETTER. We want THINGS. We want MONEY. We want LOVE. We want to be accepted, simply for the loving being we are. We already have what we need for a perfect life. Once you understand and embrace that, you will see the complete and perfect you I see. You will manifest infinitely as, you are living in the present with purity of intention and honesty. You will know to give more than you take. You’ll be surprised to all the ways love shows up. You’ll be surprised how quickly that love turns to opportunity for change. You’ll be surprised how quickly your shift in perspective allows you to access an infinite pool of resources to live your authentic, fulfilled life, and assist your dream quest. If self-improvement means there is something wrong with you, then take a deep breath and let the essence of your perfect being love your insecure self. You already have it all.

I’ve met so many wonderful people around the world that encourage me every day. People that understand loving me, means my child’s life is better, and they can then send me as a warrior for them into the world to affect change. One person I met was a bit nervous about sharing a picture of his or herself in self-realized fear that I may judge it to be ugly. Never. I receive all of the love you are generous enough to share and I see each person for whom they show up to be. Sending kind words, love, encouragement, and making an effort to support others, makes you nothing short of beautiful!

Open your heart to the love that exists, and see yourself as the complete, beautiful, loved, and perfectly flawed being you are. You cannot think your way through life or think your way through a situation. You must LIVE your way through life. What ever challenges come your way, know that you already have all the resources and support to get through it.

Step into your authentic self. Step into your excellence. Step into the love that is waiting for you. I am proud of you. I support you. I am here when you need me. Thank you for giving me the same. I receive all with open arms and return it with unconditional love. You already have it all!
