WATER YOUR GARDEN

Life can be heinously complicated, so complicated sometimes that the very breath can get knocked out of us. Sometimes it’s the simplest things; a mantra, a hug, a cup of tea, that helps us remember that we are allowed and maybe even required to lay some of our load down. None of us can manage […]

Trust Thyself

My last blog touched on the topic of unwanted touching and open bathrobes, but there is something else I want to add for this go ‘round. Current events provoke conversations. Even in this “awakening” I still hear women still doubting themselves; wondering whether they had imagined or exaggerated things when they were approached, leered at, […]

The Most Wonderful Time of The Year.

Parent: Honey, kiss everyone good night and off to bed. Kid: I don’t want to. Parent: Don’t be rude, kiss our guests goodnight. ***** Kid: I don’t want to hug Uncle Tim. Parent: Come on, he always takes really good care of you on your birthdays, let him know you appreciate it. ***** Teen: I […]

Don’t Do Anything…until you read this.

Good Monday morning, my friends. This is a Public Service Announcement that will change your life. Sit your tuckus down, because we are going to meditate. What? You can’t sit still? I don’t care. What, you can’t stop thinking fourteen things at once? What if I told you that doesn’t matter right now? Just sit […]

Life is Short and Precious – So Keep it Sexy

I was talking to a very good friend about the State of the World; the fires, the hurricanes, the earthquakes, the violence. We spoke about the dire predictions for the various parts of the world; which coast is going to end up under water, and who’s going down in a deep freeze. Somehow, we were […]

Hear! Hear! Time to Pay Attention.

When I was much younger I liked to leave the details up to the Other Guy. Things like buying a car, buying a house or getting married. Part of it was sort of an attitude towards being a female and the time I grew up. A guy was expected to sweat the details. No need […]

You Know you Can – So Do It.

Good Morning, my Friends.  Yesterday, I had taken my son to a Mexican restaurant for lunch. Another parent came in with his two older kids. Our eyes met, and we smiled at each other. It was clear that he was enjoying his down time with his kids, like I was. We had a moment and […]

Eye of The Storm

Today is a little blog, a blip of a blog. I know we all have our high beams focused on Irma which is currently engulfing Florida. I’ve stayed pretty close to the TV this weekend, and imagine I will continue to throughout the day, as will many of you.  I don’t want to pull energy, […]

YOU ARE FANTASTIC. NOW MAKE IT BETTER.

Good morning. I’ve said in my blog before that one of my favorite mantras is “You are Enough.” I love the words because we can be so hard on ourselves, we beat ourselves up constantly. We self-flagellate and betray our bodies, our hearts and our spirits by putting ourselves down. I say “You are Enough” […]

SKIPPING BUSY

Here’s what I want to say today. Don’t skip the celebrations. Don’t skip the birthdays and the anniversaries. Especially with people you have history with, with people who know you. We get busy, we celebrate busy, we adore busy.  But busy is just that. Another four letter word. Busy is an excuse. Us carbon based […]
