“I’ve enjoyed reading your articles thoroughly and have been transported to a different place for the last few hours! Thank you for that experience. I’m not sure which article I enjoyed reading the most as they are all so full and expansive for me, but possibly the one on your mother. I hold my own mother dearly and often reflect on her journey to Canada years ago. Mags Magazine is fantastic! I was engrossed in the content and your story telling.  Thank you for sharing with me and sharing your soul and stories with others.”

Mags Cover Page

“It is an inspiring and motivational publication with down-to-earth practical words of wisdom for the young and not so young. It is written in a style which can capture the minds and hearts of its readers with meaningful examples of real life situations which we can all relate to, for it encompasses life’s many experiences related to our different environments and circumstances. “Live Your Future Now” is a wakeup call for all of us, for life is short and we must take full advantage of the many avenues available to us to master our surroundings and take advantage of our inner powers to succeed regardless of our place of birth, circumstances of the environment in which we are nurtured and our past and present challenges. The author takes us through her many vicissitudes and challenges in her life and points out that through determination, hard work, discipline, belief in self, and setting goals she was able to overcome many obstacles. She also calls on us to reach out and offer help to others, not the selfish and self-centered living so typical in our world of today.
I recommend this publication to readers all over our globe for we are all faced with the challenges espoused by Magdalene Cooman form different perspectives but fundamentally rooted in living a life in full now for a future tomorrow.”

Are You A Leader Who is Giving Wings To Others?

“Leaders instill in their people a hope for success and a belief in themselves. Positive leaders empower people to accomplish their goals.” Unknown

“Leaders instill in their people a hope for success and a belief in themselves. Positive leaders empower people to accomplish their goals.” Unknown

This video is taken from my FB Live Series at the start of COVID-19. It explores our part in nurturing the talent of the youth around us. Real leaders and visionaries recognize talent very quickly. The true authentic leader knows that they give wings to others and when they do that, their legacy will carry great and positive karma in the future.

What legacy do you want to leave behind as a leader?

Part 11 – What Living Half-Way Looks Like…

Sometimes, we get comfortable living a life which is unfulfilling. It is important to be aware of our emotions because we are the only ones who can take responsibility for fixing ourselves. We don’t necessarily have to leave our relationships… we can turn inward and take responsibility for our actions.

Here is our 7th podcast – Part 11 of What Living Half-Way Looks Like. This is the case of Ken, a 50 year old man who seemed to have lost his way. What advice would you give to Ken?

Sometimes, we get comfortable living a life which is unfulfilling. It is important to be aware of our emotions because we are the only ones who can take responsibility for fixing ourselves. We don’t necessarily have to leave our relationships… we can turn inward and take responsibility for our actions.

Being indifferent about our lives brings no joy.

I Choose Love

As hard as it may seem… choosing love over hate, frees your soul.

The thought that God loves me unconditionally gives me permission to the same for others. A wonderful friend of mine called a few days ago to ask me how I am able to always find good in people, without judging them and meeting them wherever they are in their lives. My personal philosophy is that we are all people in-progress…. moving towards the light. Our paths are different. A person’s bad behaviours doesn’t not define the whole person. The worst person you can find has good in them. I am so far from being perfect… but God’s love does not judge me based on my perfections. God’s love also embraces my imperfections. This love is so pure and is not dependent on anything I do or don’t do. That love sustains me and is constant in my life.
When I think of judging another harshly, I look inwards myself. Because what I see in myself, I see in others.
Our lives and journeys go beyond what we see in the physical world. In the spiritual world, only love exists. Hate carries too heavy a price for me to bear. I choose to send love back to everyone because I know for sure that in the grand scheme of life, all what I give to the universe comes back to me a hundred fold. I live love – it is that simple.

Free yourself from holding grudges against others.
It is not worth the precious time we have to enjoy this beautiful planet. Take ownership for your life. Make it a beautiful one.

Love,

Mags

Believe In Your Capacity To Set And Achieve Your Goals

Each day I set small and big goals for myself. Sometimes, it is as simple as cleaning one closet or doing a facial or calling a friend. Sometimes it is as big as setting a goal to go back to school. Today, I start a new goal which was planted 15 years ago – to be back at university. I am starting my new MA program – Masters in Migration and Diaspora Studies.

Look out for my next post where I will talk more about my journey and how I eventually got to living this goal.

What I know for certain, is that we have the capacity to set and achieve our goals.

What are your small and big goals?

Love,

Magdalene

An Invitation For Newness And Rejuvenation

An easy way to elevate your energy and vibration is to create a clean and inviting space where you love. It opens your heart and soul to receive. Any form of cleansing is an invitation for newness and rejuvenation.

Happy Sunday and wishing everyone a beautiful day. In my part of the world, it is raining. After a restful morning in bed, we had a lovely brunch and then I ventured to do some cleaning – putting away summer stuff and preparing to welcome another favourite season – Fall.

There is something profoundly beautiful about cutting flowers from my garden and bring them indoors. It lifts the space immediately. An easy way to elevate your energy and vibration is to create a clean and inviting space where you love. It opens your heart and soul to receive. Any form of cleansing is an invitation for newness and rejuvenation.

Have an awesome Sunday.

Bring on the magic in your life

Create a magical Friday.

Count you blessings.

How do we forgive those who hurt us?

Forgiveness…. this can be a heavy word for some. We are all vulnerable to being hurt at some point in our lives. One thing I know for sure, based on my own life experiences, is that forgiving frees my soul. It creates space for me to attract more beautiful things in my life rather than to harbour hurts which drain my energy.

Here is a short video from Mags Morning Inspiration to inspire your thoughts on forgiveness.

Replace Worry With Trust

We worry about what happened yesterday. We worry about today. We worry about tomorrow. Worrying is a habit which we learn and one which sucks our emotional wellbeing. We can slowly and surely replace worry with new habits like trusting that everything will be fine, even if we don’t understand how. The more we trust God, our Creator, the Universe, in meeting all of our needs, the lighter and happier we become. Trust that all of your needs will be met.

#4 Soul Inspiring Places

I enjoy travelling. It is as simple as this.

At the start of COVID-19, I decided on one goal for myself – this is to develop my digital skills. This was in April 2020. Since then I have done several things including starting a Mags FB Live session at 9:00a.m. which I later branded as #magsmorninginspiration and then a new series #Soulinspiringplaces. Both of these have now been added to Mags Magazine.
Working through this process has been rewarding, educational, thought provoking and has made me become more aware of the story teller inside of me which is longing to be more visible to the world.
This project kept me motivated through COVID-19 and will continue to be a focus for me. It is not perfect yet but I learnt to let go of perfection a long time ago and embrace myself, my life and my experiences as a work in progress… always excited about my ‘what’s next?’
Did you set any goals during the COVID-19 period?
