Always Well Within

Calm Your Mind, Ease Your Heart, Embrace Your Inner Wisdom

The Best of Always Well Within 2014

Lotus Flower

Soon we’ll enter the New Year with all its momentary excitement – fireworks, champagne, and maybe even a midnight kiss.

All that’s fun, but in truth each moment is new, each moment offers a fresh opportunity, each moment can be the one that sparks healing, change, and transformation for you.

I try to capture this essential message in all my writing on Always Well Within. It’s possible because your mind is pliable, flexible, and able to embrace new directions when you give it a chance and a loving nudge.
