My New Year is the Fall

I’m not sure what it is…years of training from ‘back to school’ or simply the start of my favorite season, but this time of year always feels more like the fresh start of a New Year than January. Or even spring, if we’re getting technical. The shift from summer and the seemingly chaotic non-schedule of … Continue reading

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

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

“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

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

Um…No Thanks!

As much of America camped out, waited in line, and decided to spend their Friday shopping like sardines, I had a very pleasant day staying as far away from any Black Friday locations as possible. In fact, I spend much of my day devouring blogs espousing the merits of shopping less (or not at all), … Continue reading

The Break-Up Plan

I have been wanting to share with you something that has totally changed my life for the better. This may be something that everyone else has been doing, (did I just miss the memo?) but if you haven’t, I highly recommend you give it a try. As many of you know, I am a fairly … Continue reading

Meditative Monday

Sometimes I feel I have nothing to write in here, and other moments, like today, I feel I have too much to cover…so many things to catch you up on; reasons I’ve been MIA, thoughts and ruminations since last I posted about my abundant squash, but perhaps it’s best I just dip my toe back … Continue reading
