Cracking wide open

Parting words from one of my wisest friends as I left for Bali, "open your heart, lead with it, be in your heart, this is what you need". I've been "in my head" so long, I could hardly contemplate what it means to open my heart. I'm kind, isn't that enough? I mean, I try… Continue reading Cracking wide open

Teaching Love

It's been awhile... I've been digesting life. Slowly. I wish I could tell my daughter things to make her life easier. I wish that I could sit down with her and catch her eye and she would hear me. Our relationship isn't quite like that. She doesn't enjoy eye contact and sitting still for more… Continue reading Teaching Love

Outrageously Open

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

The Dreamer of Improbable Dreams

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

Love v. Fear – for the win

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

Your Only Purpose is to Be Yourself

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

The Joy of Just Being

I think perhaps that is my lesson (well one of them anyway). Remember to just BE. It's so impossible. I swear, if the Universe had provided me with any gift OTHER than A) a brain injury that literally HURTS to concentrate or think (or read for that mater) and B) a spinal fluid leak that… Continue reading The Joy of Just Being
