“In Life, when chances are taken…

“In Life, when chances are taken and you accept the outcome; you then are able to move forward with peace and clarity.” ©Emma Ortega Negrete


All too often we fear moving forward and taking chances because we don’t want to get disappointed.  However, when you actually take those chances that keep weighing you down and keep you worrying throughout your days; you in essence are finally saying “finito” to FEAR.

Once you have done what you set out to do; you gain peace and clarity because you have conquered that negative noise of “FEAR”.  Remember, FEAR is a fake emotion keeping you from your greatest blessings.  

The blessing of PEACE IS PRICELESS.  So when you reach the end of your journey, you won’t look back wondering what if I had taken that chance.

Take chances and live without regrets.  Everyone fails.  It is through failure that our successes are made.  And, peace is one of the greatest successes in life because most people don’t have that precious gift.

Once you remove…


Once you remove the noise, we can concentrate on each other.   Something Meghan said in their engagement interview.

I smiled hearing the interview knowing she knew that if she and Prince Harry focused on all the negativity from the press and even from her own estranged family; their relationship would have been affected in some way.

Remember,  this was Worldwide Negative News and on a bigger scale then what most of us will ever have to endure.  Congrats to Harry & Meghan!

Friends, shutting off the toxic noise is key to clarity.   That leaves all your energy to be used in positive ways thus creating and making  the best decisions.

Living In The Moment?? Say What?!


I intentionally put a question mark after the title because I know there are many of you out there or your loved ones that find it difficult to “live in the Moment” or “Be Present”.  

Yesterday, my spirit was quickened to write on this matter.  I had a pretty dark day yesterday and it’s not the first.  I needed to make certain that my medications for chronic back pain and anxiety were leveled which is sometimes hard to do because your hormonal/chemical balance is a bit off.  No day is exactly the same.  Everyday, I focus on getting to the point of being present so that I can live in the moment thus taking any necessary actions to bring my joy and fulfillment for the day.  It’s a battle when you have chronic back pain with the anxiety that comes from it.  No medicine is exact so you learn how to balance them to find your joy each day.  I managed to workout even twice; weight lifting glutes  in the a.m. and a brisk walk in the evening.  The rainy gloomy day didn’t help and I know that was part of the dark day.

So friends, if you sometimes see a post that says “live in the moment” or “be present”, don’t get upset.  Understand that they are simply phrases to get you thinking of what it is that you have to do in order to accomplish that scenario.

Some people don’t have ailments so it’s easy for them to just spew out phrases that they no nothing about the struggle to live in the moment and be present.  It’s the people such as myself and any of you or others that deal with the battle daily or thereof.

Do what it takes irrespective of what others may think of you, it’s your life and you need to find your joy of fulfillment.  Otherwise, there’s no purpose in living.

Want to empower yourself or a loved one from titles of a woman that’s been through hell and back more than she can count?  A woman that knows what it’s like to struggle for balance each day and yet still find some or a lot of  joy in it?  Visit me at http://www.amazon.com/author/emmaorteganegrete .

Willow’s 1st Gymnastics Meet


So proud of my 2nd granddaughter, Willow.  She got her medal at her 1st gymnastics meet.  She’s a natural and gifted at 4 1/2 yrs young.  .

Remember to always speak power to people especially children.  They are more vulnerable at that age to develop low self-esteem issues.  “Children” are our future.

Do Negative Thoughts have Power?


Negative thoughts have no power unless you take the actions associated with those thoughts.

For example, if you’re seeking a job at a particular place but start thinking that you haven’t got a chance so you don’t even bother to apply.  Then you, in essence, gave that negative thought power by the action you took.

Another example,  you are looking to lose weight but figure you don’t have the time and, to boot, you add the fact that you’re too old, have a bad back, etc. So, you don’t even bother trying giving credence to those negative thoughts.

Want to change that downward spiral?
