New Normal

“Accept the enormity. Give up illusions of containment. The hardest fact of all is that, no matter what the outcome, it is unlikely you can ever again be the person you have been until now.” I don’t know who said the above quote, so if you know, please feel free to tell me in theContinue reading “New Normal”

Jersey Girl

I couldn’t go through the summer without telling you I’m a Jersey Girl at heart. What does that mean? It means that I go to the beach, not the shore. It means that my happy place is toes in the sand, sun on my face and the smell of the ocean in my hair. ItContinue reading “Jersey Girl”

Don’t Worry

It’s Sunday so I thought it was a good day to talk about prayer. Even if you’re not religious, you understand the quote above. To me, it makes complete sense. In fact, it was as if a lightbulb went off in my head that hadn’t ignited before now. What you pay attention to increases; thereforeContinue reading “Don’t Worry”

Heaven and Hell

I find that humor helps in healing. Even a little dash of gallows humor works for me when things are looking bad.

I try to find the best in the situation and a little giggle oftenContinue reading “Heaven and Hell”

Soul on Deck

Here’s a great reminder on a Sunday afternoon – Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ wonderful poem “Soul on Deck”: “Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach.

I grabbed my phone and took the shot above, but itContinue reading “Sharing My Rainbow With You”

Perfect, Whole and Complete

Perhaps it’s time to make aContinue reading “Perfect, Whole and Complete”

Help For Empaths

Lately, I’m noticing that those who are empathic are having a difficult time. It’s no wonder for many of us are feeling the stressors of the human experience magnified during this time. So if you are an empath, perhaps some of these ideas will help you. I recently talked with an empath who has livedContinue reading “Help For Empaths”

Healing Your Inner Child

We learn our belief systems as very little children, and then we move through life creating experiences to match our beliefs. Look back in your own life and notice how often you have gone through the same experience. Louise Hay When we are children, many times in certain family structures, we are given a role.Continue reading “Healing Your Inner Child”

Fix Your Thinking

I do not fix problems. I fix my thinking. Then problems fix themselves. Louise Hay Fixing your thinking sounds harder than it actually is. When we perceive it’s a problem, then the mind goes into ‘fixing mode’ in order to deal with the problem. But what if we were to accept the problem and thusContinue reading “Fix Your Thinking”
