Dealing with The Voices in Your Head

Fredric Varady for Canon Nylons

There’s a little voice inside your head – it’s unique to you, yet each one of us has one. Oh, let’s be honest, we all have more than one little voice inside us. Most of us have five. There are the voices of Wisdom and Intuition. That inner knowing that edges us to make decisions […]

Cultivate Your In-Box Instead of Hate Your Email

Elvgren_Mailbox

When I had my first AOL email account, I got so excited hearing the “You’ve Got Mail” message greeting me after the bing BANG bing of my modem connecting to the internet. Of course, I have always loved letters, magazines and catalogs arriving in my US Mail Box, so having electronic mail (of any kind) […]

I went to the library this week and was a bit surprised at the plethora of school aged children perusing books. Then I remembered that this is the first week of Summer Vacation for local school kids and they were joining in the Summer Reading Program.

Emmanuel Garant

“I now see how owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.” –Brené Brown One of strongest truths I’ve learned is that in this journey of life, there is no there. We think that when we set a goal or hire a coach, that life […]

Reflections on the Wisdom of Forty-Seven

Billy DeVorss

“Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.” –Jean Paul My forty-seventh birthday was this week. It passed without angst despite the fact that fifty seems incredibly close. Maybe I’m making peace with aging more than I was this time last year. Or maybe fifty just doesn’t seem as scary as it seemed. […]

Shared Ritual Is You Choosing Love Over Fear

Edwin Georgi for English Woman Magazine 1958

You Are Worth Creating Sacred Space

Johnson Wax Ad 1956 by Marilyn Conover

“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself over and over again.” ― Joseph Campbell One of the hardest lessons I’ve had to learn (time and again) is that my mind and soul need quiet and order to thrive. And I’m not just talking about the beautiful sound of silence. I’m talking about the […]

Stop Beating Yourself Up Over Past Mistakes

Case of the Footloose Doll James Bingham 1958

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson […]
