As I write this, tears stream down my face. For the past hour I have been reading through hundreds of my blog posts since 2007. Yes, I still have every single post I’ve ever written and published…now viewable on this brand new website right here (I love technology). If you had asked me yesterday what [...]

I saw this in my mother in law’s house last week and chuckled to myself. I believe it is an Albert Einstein quote. I’ve seen it there for the past 15 years but this time it really struck a chord and I just had to laugh it off. I took a picture of it immediately [...]

To the women in our lives

Latifah. Angelina. Maya. Charlize. Oprah. Marianne. These women inspire me to be powerful, poised, graceful, creative, brilliant, dedicated, caring, generous and beautiful…inside and out. They are in the public eye. They’re famous and glamorous. We see them in the news, social media, in movies and interviews. I’m very grateful that we have so many positive female role models to admire [...]

How to follow your bliss

Follow your bliss. Could it really be that simple? Isn’t that self-centered and selfish? When we focus on doing what makes us happy, what about our loved ones? How do they fit into our bliss?

It’s not September’s fault, mind you. It has been one of my favorite months for many years…but this time it’s [...]

  Oh I’m not talking about your waistline or the number on the scale. I’m talking about consciousness. I’m talking about feeling your heart wide open to all that is, right now. I’m talking about trusting in the process and allowing life to FLOW, instead of clutching, clenching, wrenching, holding, struggling to make life do [...]

When I look back at all of the incredible moments since May of this year, I am filled with such glee I can barely contain it.  So I won’t. I’ll let the glee burst forth and explode into a million sparkles in the sky.  I’ll let it pour over everyone and everything.  I’ll let it [...]
