Not When I’m Fat

I ran into a friend I hadn’t seen in years the other day. I told her, I checked her Facebook page a couple times and didn’t see anything. She replied, “You know I don’t post when I’m fat.” It made me think about what we put on hold until…  Until I have more money, I…

My 3 Magical Ms

I achieve the best results, when I am in the zone. It doesn’t matter what I’m working on. What mattered is my attitude/vibe. Things go smoothly, less effort is needed and I’m at peace when I can tap into my flow. I know I’m slipping away, when I feel irritated, anxious or pissy. That is…

What The What?

Naysayers used to piss me off. I would get caught up in listening to them, then defend myself, followed by self doubt. Do they know something I don’t? Should I believe them? Should I squash my plan? I’m learning to listen from a different perspective. When people give us unsolicited feedback, it has more to…

All Words Have Power 

I write my weekly blog on Tuesday mornings from the elliptical machine. While walking into the gym this morning I was pondering what today’s topic should be. The lady at the counter said, “I can’t wait to see your outfit. You always look so nice.” I turned, to see who she was talking to. Since…

Open The Flood Gates

My husband and I planned our wellness business for years before we opened our doors. We talked about what we wanted to do, why it would be different and who would be our clients. We would discuss the plan every chance we got. Our chats were like active vision boards. We came up with a…

All Is Well

Where’s your focus? Do you spend more energy thinking about what could go wrong or on what is going well? I believe in planning for the future. We need to be prepared. We don’t need to worry about every detail that could potentially go wrong.  There is a balance between thinking things through and obsessing….

The Love Bully

There are five beings in my house. Two humans, two dogs and one cat. Everyone gets and gives plenty of love. The Saint Bernard puppy insists on being part of any and all interactions. If my husband picks up the cat, Valentino will cry because he wants to be held. If I hug my husband,…

Merge

I believe we see people’s true colors by the way they get on the highway. It’s interesting to watch if people plow straight ahead focused on getting there first. Or do they look around to see how their actions impact others? How do you behave when you think no one is watching? Radom acts of…

Peace Comes From Within 

We could be on vacation, at a beautiful destination, with our favorite person and feel unsettled. We could also be sitting in traffic, running late to go to an appointment we don’t want to go to and be at peace.  Finding inner peace is a skill we must learn and can learn. The fastest, easiest,…

What Do You Love?

 I can vividly remember walking through my house as a child, knowing each vase, piece of china had a back story. I didn’t know then, but a seed was being planted. I always thought old items were unique and cool. My love for antiques blossomed in 2010 when my husband and I went to our…

Impressive

  I love New Years resolutions! I love making a list, checking it twice. As I prepare for the new year, I am filled with hope, positive thoughts and optimism. I am convinced, this is going to be my year!!! Before I jump into 2017, I want to assess 2016 and acknowledge some of my…

What if…

                 What if I didn’t go out that night? What if I judged him for his tattoos? What if I believed, you can’t meet someone “good” in a bar? What if I didn’t meet someone who loves me unconditionally? What if I didn’t meet someone who has made me…
