We are what we believe we are.

About Vicki L Flaherty

I am most alive when I am creating, whether through writing, gardening, photography, cooking, crafting, sewing... Running and yoga enrich my being. I am happiest when I’m with my husband Jim. Travel opens me to new possibilities and greater awareness. I find a special joy when I’ve helped someone see their brilliance and express their full potential. As I've focused on living more mindfully, I've found special joy in expressing myself through poetry and photography, and in truly being in relationship with those I meet along my journey.

    Hello, Vicki.

    Nice quote.

    I would also add, “We are what we believe we can be.”

    Our goals, dreams and aspirations play a great part in our being, in my view.

    Best regards,

    • Hector, I completely agree. Our thoughts create things so the goals we set, the dreams we follow and the aspirations that lead up are fundamental to who we are becoming. Thanks for stopping by to share your ideas!
