Quitting The Dead Princess Club

Years ago, I read Gilda Radnor’s book, It’s Always Something. Like many of us with advanced Cancer, she had tried to figure out what it was that had made her so sick. When she was on SNL, she had suffered eating disorders, chewed sugarless gum constantly, and drank endless cans of Tab. I did all of […]

Stop Chasing the Bacon

This month I turn 57. I’m getting long in the tooth, as they say. And I am happy to earn my fangs. As often is the case, the older we get, the more we realize we don’t know, and youth is wasted on the young and all that jazz. But there are some things I […]

A Community for All of Us.

A week ago I took my third and final jump across country from one coast to the other. I wrote my last blog two weeks ago in some pretty darned chilly temperatures in New York, surrounded by boxes and packing tape. Today’s blog comes to you from our new digs in sunny Southern California. My […]

The Best Present Ever.

Your biggest Christmas present is right here, right now. And it will always be with you. Your present. In this moment, those of us who are sick are alive. Those of us who have lost people and are heartbroken are okay. Your present is the only place to be. When we look back and try […]

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.

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” […]

Right Here. Right Now.

Good Morning.  I have one thing to tell you today; You will never have any kind of lasting happiness unless you make living in the present moment your regular jam.  That is just the truth. If you aren’t looking at what is right in front of you right now, you’re missing out on the jewels […]

Love Letters

I am very concerned about the dark times we are in.  The whole world is experiencing deep turmoil and angst, we all know that and are getting pounded with as much news and information as we could possibly bear.  Maybe more than some of us can bear. We are reverting to some kind of primitive […]

The Love Club – Kick Your Emotional Bully’s to the Curb

I have always been a People Pleaser. I don’t like to admit that, but I am. It’s a behavior trait that makes me very good at my various jobs in the wellness and fitness industry.  I am service minded, and I take care of my clients.  I want them happy when they are with me, […]

Growing up Slowly, Overnight

I will keep adding to this list, as time goes on.  I hope to remind myself and everyone else who wears a human suit of the little things that could be universally helpful in our toolkits. Here are three truth’s of mine today that […]
