Tuesday, April 27, 2010 - TRANSFORMATION


My Daughter, Ayla, just graduated from her Honor's B.A. and has landed a sweet job with an ad agency.  Unfortunately, this has nixed her plans to go off to Korea for the year, but fortunately, she is working for a feature ad agency (Apple, Uncle Ben's Rice etc. - bling bling!!) and being the good girl that she is - work and building her career comes first!

Transformation is a powerful process - whether it be rite of passage such as graduation, or meeting a person who literally changes your life!  We have all had this experience...realizing that we are in the midst of someone who it isn't always the most comfortable person to be around, but on the other hand, someone who in those uncomfortable moments teaches us things about ourselves we would have very little opportunity to find out otherwise.  These are the people we tend to really love greatly, whether they be our children, our BF's or our lover's and spouses or family.

So today is dedicated to TRANSFORMATION of every sort...to getting new jobs, to meeting new people and, through whatever means, moving from one level of consciousness to another.

So Happy Graduation Ayla!  I am so proud of you...you made it with flying colors...You are the best daughter I could ever hope for - My dream come true!!!
