What I Know To Be True About You

I did a business exercise recently to figure out what I should be blogging about on a regular basis.  When you put a lot of effort into writing, there’s the added bonus when someone actually reads it…  To get someone to read it requires that I write about something they (aka you) might be interested… Read More


You Can’t Cook a Turkey in 10 Minutes

“There are years that ask questions and years that answer.”   ~Zora Neale Hurston I have been accused of being a Polly Positive kind of person and my approach to 2017 was right in line with what you would expect.  At least that’s what it sounded like when I talked about it.  And I meant… Read More


What Healthy People Have In Common

The strangest thing keeps happening. Like this. I have a friend who is in her 60s.  I know this sounds a bit cliche, but truly, she doesn’t look a day over 40.  Folks are amazed and when they find out how old she is. often exclaim  “No way”, they say, “what good genes you have!”.  She… Read More


The Secret Behind Resolutions

  Are you still going gangbusters on your New Year’s resolutions?  I hope you are, but if you are like most, continuing change gets difficult.  You may even be completely off the track.  You are skipping the gym, arguing with your spouse, and ignoring the changes you decided to make. “I’m not disciplined enough to make… Read More


Happiness is Waiting for You

  “Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you.”  ~Hafez Have you seen the gratitude jar challenge?  This is where you write one thing a day to be grateful for and place it safely in a jar.  Then, at the end of the year, you pull… Read More


New Beginnings

Hey there – it’s me….  I haven’t written here in a while.  I could give you all sorts of reasons why and, trust me, they are valid.  But the truth is, I haven’t been present for my blog. Believe it or not….  it’s a heart’s desire of mine to write.  I overcome ego and fear each… Read More


It Is What It Is

My mother says this should be inscribed on my tombstone.  I say it often.  I don’t mean it in any sort of flippant, hair flinging, foot stomping, hand-on-the-hip kind of way.  When those words come flowing out of my mouth they are acknowledging something I cannot change.  Something that it is time to accept. There… Read More


When Terror Strikes

Yesterday’s bombings in Brussels disturbed me greatly.  I was in that airport last summer on a trip with my daughter.  I have been thinking of the kind lady who helped us with a travel delay.  I hope she is ok. I’m sure the terror in Brussels horrified you as well.  Or maybe, after regular exposure… Read More


What’s Love Got to Do With It?

 Absolutely everything. I know lots of us are celebrating this holiday with our special love.  Me too.  My love and I are attending a concert of a favorite musician.  But, that’s sooo not what I’m talking about.  I’m talking about a love of life, of YOU. Do you remember when you last fell in love… Read More


The Greatest Love Story

  This journal entry needs to begin complete with a drum roll.  Whatever could the greatest love story be about?  We probably all have a good love story, or two, we could nominate for this award.  Maybe our first love, our current love, the one that got away, the love of a job or pet,… Read More


My Wellness Prescription

I have become aware that sometimes it is helpful for me to share some of my own life practices. A behind the scenes look, if you will.  I try to do that regularly, but didn’t quite understand how penetrating the visual of my struggle can be until the last couple of weeks.  I guess most… Read More


Sinking Deeper Into Gratitude

I wrote a blog a while back on radical gratefulness and the power of finding something in the present moment for which to be grateful.  This is a sure fire antidote to anxiety and depression.  It can be more difficult than it sounds, however.  Often we can’t think of anything to be grateful for, because we… Read More
