Thanksgiving has always been a time for family. Growing up, we would travel to Long Island to celebrate with Mom's side of the family. When I married Brad, Thanksgiving was celebrated together – my family and his coming together because everyone enjoyed each other's company. What a blessing that was in and of itself.

We're talking about the energy or essence of Love. Loving without conditions.

I posed a question on my Facebook page where I asked “If you knew you couldn’t fail what would your life be like?” The responses I received were very interesting. Some stated that they would take more risks. Others said they would go for their dreams, pursue their passions. These statements started me thinking that the words “fail or failure” are just as impeding to our lives as the word “fear”. But what if you couldn’t fail? And just what does “fail” mean anyway?
