Where I Have Been. Where I AM going.

It was a little over a year ago when I asked the universe to help me reconnect with itself…you know, “God.” In my adult life I have neglected saying that word. Feeling it was too polarizing. Mystical. Church-like. Despite my existence as a human being, and even having a minor in World Religion, I felt … Continue reading

Two Years…A Whole New Life

Two Years…A Whole New Life

For two years I have been passing by a little reminder on my iphone calendar every Saturday night. “Blog.” I notice it every week, and with a slight sinking feeling, think, “oh, I’ll get to that next week.” For TWO years. I hadn’t realized it was two…I thought it was only one. Oh boy. Two … Continue reading

Are you feeding your mind?

Are you feeding your mind?

I’m a believer in feeding one’s mind, body and soul on a regular basis. In fact, I believe it should be on a daily basis. I’m always interested in good books, audios, and resources to help me dream bigger and improve how I’m getting there, which is why I’m so excited about the arrival of … Continue reading

How to Plan Your New Year Goals

How to Plan Your New Year Goals

I’m a list maker, so as you might imagine, I’ve already written down my 2015 goals. Have you? Writing your goals is the first step toward achieving them. If you haven’t already, take some time to complete this critical step. I have been loving following the Oola outline for my goal setting, from “Oola” by … Continue reading

Wasn’t Sure I was Ready for Fall…

But I am! When the weather first started seeming a bit chilly last week, I lamented our too-short summer and the rarity of temperatures above 90. As we plunge, truly, into what feels and looks like fall – cold night-time temperatures, leaves dropping to the ground, my need to actually wear a hat yesterday morning … Continue reading

Meditative Monday

“Be Still” These are the words my friend opened with today in her ’30 Days for Peace’ Facebook group. She asked us to take just five minutes, breathe…and be still. As I read them this morning, I thought, “okay, no problem, I can find five minutes.” It is now 7:32pm and instead of being still, … Continue reading

Meditative Monday

“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell, and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will … Continue reading

I’m a Tea & Scones Kinda Girl

I’m a Tea & Scones Kinda Girl

Apparently. Tea & scones just make my day. Despite the fact I had a friend reschedule her visit, I’m sitting here enjoying this moment by myself. Baby is napping. Husband out. Quiet bliss…for a moment. 🙂 Three delicious Young Living Orange & cranberry scones later (ahem), I am taking a moment in my bliss to … Continue reading

Just the Thing.

Today started a little bit off. I was tired, and so was Ronan, which made for a cranky morning. I knew I could turn it around, and that the worst thing I could do is to focus on any negativity. Negative thoughts beget more negative thoughts…and things. So to stop this negative train, and salvage … Continue reading

And just like that…

2013 is over. The holidays are in the past. The whirlwind of visits, drives, wrapping, unwrapping…and the celebration of a life cut too short. An unexpected end. Just like that. If this most recent loss of my stepmother taught me one thing, it is, life is too short, brief and unpredictable to give over any … Continue reading
