Just Say NO To A New Year Resolution

Just Say NO To Setting a New Year Resolution!

What are your New Year resolutions?

I don’t make resolutions anymore.
They’re so HARSH, so final, so UNFORGIVING, so dehumanizing.

Let’s think about this.
How many times in the past did you RESOLVE to lose weight? run farther? be patient? read 10 books a day? Not yell at your kids or […]

After The Angels Have Moved On

After the Angels have moved on?
Angels don’t move on.
Angels are present with us–bidden and unbidden–
everywhere we stand, sit, move, walk, run, drive to.

This is challenging for us to grasp
since we’re linear thinkers most of the time
and we don’t necessarily trust the notion
that a Presence would remain with us at all times.

But they do.

Even when we […]

Worthy.

Prayer for Today: Worthy.

I stumble over these feelings.
I have resisted them
(seeing them, naming them)
for months…

No… for a lifetime.

And today,
they’ve jumped onto my table
and into my lap
and REFUSE to be put down, away, ignored.
They will NOT be ignored;
because TODAY, they feel threatened;
they want to win.

They have insinuated themselves
stealthily,
silently,
craftily
into every thought,
every word (spoken and unspoken)
every […]

Sit And Meditate

Sit! And Meditate…

Having meditated off and on since I was 18 (You do the math.),
I feel compelled to assure you that very few people meditate daily
every day of their life.
Most people have moments (some very long moments)
when sitting quietly becomes anathema to inner peace–
The struggle undermines what peace they are able to feel.

So, most […]

Replace “I have to” with “I get to”

Replace “I have to” with “I get to”
and watch your world light up.

Who would think that one little word would have such an amazing impact
on your day?

Today, I sat down to set and write my intentions for the day.

I always start by saying, “Thank you, Lord…” for one blessing in particular
and all my blessings in […]

How To Have A Healthy Body And Mind

How to have a healthy body and mind

This morning and evening, I presented my workshop,
“Mind Body Strategies to Create Greater Success in
Your Sport, Workout, Life.”

I enjoyed seeing how many folks are interested in learning
how to apply mind body awareness to their sport, workout, and life.

We tend to compartmentalize everything which makes it all
so much more […]

To Plan Or Not To Plan

To Plan Or Not To Plan

I like to wander….but not always and not always aimlessly.

I’m sitting here, wondering how much control I should take
of THIS situation.

Inertia seems to have set in.
We each sit, lost in our thoughts or activities—
reading, texting, writing—

when we HAD agreed (yesterday)
to be up and about by 9 a.m..

It’s now 9:44.
And […]

The Best Seat In The House

The best seat in the house?

Being a Mom gives me the best view, the best seat,
the inside line…

This week, many of us Moms are sending our children off to college,
some for the first time. I wrote this today,
thinking of a dear friend who is struggling particularly hard
with the transition and all the […]

We Do The Best We Know How

We do the best we know how….

All too often, we judge ourselves–and others–
by impossible, ridiculous standards.

What we forget, in all our judging,
is that we’re human.

We forget that we trip over our feet and our words
and our past and our dreams.

We forget that, as children,
we sought to please the adults in our life
and sometimes, those […]

What Is Meant By Transparency?

What is meant by transparency?

Did you grow up hiding things under the rug?
By “things,” I mean feelings, events that became secrets—large and small
that became ENORMOUS because they were secret.

It’s impossible to guesstimate the toll that an unspoken fear
has on one’s future self, choices, family, friends, time…

Here’s a story:

A mother and daughter prepare for the […]
