Sooooooo, I'm nearly at the 11 month mark since the car accident. 11 months. I've spent the 36th year of my life on bedrest, and in hospitals, and in indescribable pain. Wow, what a journey. I've learned some valuable lessons, OK that's the understatement of the century. Each day is hard. It's hard to wake… Continue reading Be the light, find the magic
I just finished the most delicious new book. Outrageous Openness, by Tosha Silver. You must stop everything and pick it up. Audible or Reader version, either will work for this book, so download it, stop at a bookstore, whatever you must do. I attended the recent Hay House event "I Can Do It, Austin" and… Continue reading Outrageously Open
Ahhhh, I'm finally back at the keyboard. Long trip. I try to not write until I can say something positive... like the childhood phrase "if you can't say something nice, don't..." it's like it imprinted! So. I was having a hard time digging deep. Stopped somewhere along the road at a pitstop called Feeling Sorry… Continue reading The Dreamer of Improbable Dreams
It's been awhile... Today I drive to Houston (in the hatchback so I can lay flat) so tomorrow I can fly to Durham, NC. Friday will be my much anticipated visit with Dr. Grey at Duke Medical Center. This is my affirmation for the trip. Traveling alone. Trusting in the helpfulness of strangers along the… Continue reading Farewell Love Letter
Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh! I can't WAIT to write this morning and share good news with you all!!! Miracles folks, they do happen every day. Hold the hope. Keep the vision! Did I tell you I finally got an appointment with Duke University? Well, I'm pretty excited about it. But… Continue reading Find your tribe!
It's been awhile... life with a CSF leak is a crazy, crazy place. But I would like to shout from the rooftops that I have an appointment with Dr. Grey at Duke Univ later this month and I'm extremely hopeful it will be the miracle I expect it to be. I've been focused on finding… Continue reading Hope and Goals
I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about the power of love over fear. As someone that has spent a good deal of my adult life working in Marketing and Advertising, it always stops me dead in my tracks when I see an interesting new marketing strategy. I stop, contemplate, assess, and my statistical… Continue reading Love v. Fear – for the win
Does anyone else notice the interesting phenomenon in the world right now of searching for HAPPINESS? There are new books and online "challenges" seemingly released every week regarding the science of happiness. The Happiness Project. Delivering Happiness. Finding Happiness. 100 Days of Happiness. Radical Change and Unlimited Happiness. There are courses from online institutions, Hay House… Continue reading The Elusive Pursuit of Happiness
I was thinking the other day about what I miss most about life outside of the home. I mean, I can go outside now, I have a futon on the back porch so I get fresh air and sunshine (which is HEAVENLY mind you). We have a yard full of trees, so I get the breeze… Continue reading Live It. Get on the Court.
So, in my ongoing efforts to single handedly support Hay House Publishing, I just broke down and read "Dying to Be Me" by Anita Moorjani. I have to admit I have mindfully avoided this book since I became aware of it, a couple of years ago. If you somehow missed it, it's about a woman… Continue reading Your Only Purpose is to Be Yourself
