Welcome to Empowered People, Peaceful Planet

Hi and welcome to my blog.  This is my first foray into blogging so I hope you'll bear with me while I learn the ropes.

I wanted to create a forum for people who are mad about personal development and self improvement and desire to "spread the word" with the fundamental understanding and belief that, well, if everyone feels great about themselves and their circumstances, or at least understood that they have the power to be the creators of their own lives, then everyone would be taking responsibility for their own STUFF and what would there be to fight about or war over anymore.  Idealistic?  Probably!  One of my former bosses told me I was an ideologue which really just meant that I was striving for something higher than he was willig to do.  But I thank him for that.  That idealism, striving for excellence, trying to see what's possible and the best in everything and everyone (although not always easy) is part of who I am, and holding onto the hope that we can all contribute to making the world a better place by improving ourselves, helping ourselves and god forbid even likeing ourselves, gives me a strength, energy, enthusiasm and joy of life that I wish for others to experience and share in.

Anita Rodick said "If you think you are too small to be effective, you've never been in bed with a mosquito!"  Well I have been, and they are bloody effective, so we must be able to be too.  So, I hope that you will join me on this journey, contribute your thoughts, learnings, inspiration, as well as get some, and help create a wave of positive energy, which commences within each one of us and resonates outward to the rest of the world and all we encounter, to improve life on earth for as many as we chance upon and hopefully for all living things.
