I am re-posting my first year blog entry — sure puts things into perspective! Soon, I will share what my most magnificent and awesome 4th year celebration looks like (still in it!) — watch this space: What a day, my friend. Today is my one year anniversary… of what, you ask? Well, of total freedom, tremendous difficulties […]

Boundaries for Peace

Boundaries and peace are usually not put together as a concept, yet I’ve found that without establishing personal boundaries, there will be no peace. Let me expand my reasoning here… See, when I lived back East, my blood family didn’t understand boundaries.  My life was theirs, and that was that.  I felt suffocated and did […]

Is it really about you?

Hello my friend, Want to share a concept which I’ve known for a long time, but am finally really getting it! We take things WAY too personal, when 99% of the time, it truly has nothing to do with us, personally! I’m looking at several layers here. There is the racist, anti-semitic, homophobic, etc., arena […]

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind” – Gandhi

Dear Friend, Let’s take Gandhi’s insightful quote a step further. Of course, we’ve all heard of “what goes around comes around” or “what you sow is what you reap” or just good ol’ karma.  Yes? So we know that revenge only hurts us in the long run.  By interacting with hurt through retaliation, we are, […]

“Be the change YOU want to see in the world” – Gandhi

This is one of my all time favorite quotes, so simple, so profound, yet so misunderstood. What is change to you? Is change a new haircut?  New outfit? Or maybe a new job?  New home? OK, yes, this is change, in the sense of something OUTSIDE of you has been altered. A funny example that […]

Abundance means to Aggressively BELIEVE!

OK, let’s move into the “B” of ABundance… In order to thrive, one must truly BELIEVE that they are already thriving, that they will continue to thrive, and that abundance is waiting for their shiny cup to overflow with blessings! Belief is not just visualization, though it definitely helps the process.  As does positive affirmations.   […]

ABUNDANCE begins with an A

Let’s look at ABUNDANCE. Let’s start with the first letter, A. A is for Apple. We learned that in our very young years as a part of learning the basics of the alphabet, yes? Well, later on we learned that apples actually keeps us healthy!  “An apple a day helps keep the doctor away”. Another […]

Parent or Wuss?

Sounds like a practical question, in this day and age. I couldn’t believe it, there I was eating my lunch with CNN’s Headline News, nothing unusual. Then it came on, the discussion about the “sexualization” of young girls, like 7, 8, 9 year old girls. The so-called expert came on describing how horrific it is […]

Best Poem Ever

Even though I’ve read this poem before, it is truly a remarkable reminder to be all that we are, and can be…  xoxo Even if you’ve read it before, enjoy it again…. INSPIRING EMAIL MAYA ANGELOU’S BEST POEM EVER    A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE … enough money within her control to move out and rent […]

“I wish you enough”

In my recent visit to Unity Church in Monterey Bay, the Minister, Vicky Elder, read a most poignant poem about the theme, “enough”, which is a very powerful concept, as we always want more and more, and are never satisfied…. With all of God’s blessings as ENOUGH!! I think this poem encapsulates such, written by […]

Challenge as Opportunity

Yes, this reality is very pertinent to us individually, as a family or group, as a nation, and as a planet. This blog was inspired by Yehuda Berg’s Kabbalah quote this morning: “Problems are problems because you see them as problems.   Today, look at your problems as obstacles.  With obstacles, there’s challenge.  With challenge, there’s […]

The Criteria for Leadership ~ Napoleon Hill

What does it mean to be a Leader? Well, being a mom (parent) is leading little one’s with open hearts and open minds toward a beautiful life.  That is one of the greatest leadership gifts of all! Of course, there is the leadership in the workforce, in politics, and overall in all establishments of society […]

Eye of the Beholder or the Media?

As a Mass Communications major in college, I am still blown away by the social implications of mass media, which also includes the Internet.  How we see ourselves and others — is it geared by our own heart or the influence of the media / social norms? Anyway, this comes up as my best friend, […]

To judge, or not to judge — that is the question!

** Mosaic done by my best friend, Anges de Lumiere **   Hello my friend, To judge or not to judge, that is my question today.  Actually, it’s been a pondering question for many decades now, and today I feel like answering it from one (of many) angles. Recently, I ran into a lot of […]

My 11-year old daughter Ocean’s poem: “What does it mean to be strong?”

Does it mean to admit your wrong,or to always be right? To look out for others, or have excellent sight? To be able to lift weights,or have a few play dates? To fit in the crowd,or to be protective and proud? To have power like a king,or to always know the right thing? All of […]

Attitude of Gratitude

OK, so our first Abundance discussion was about focusing on the positive, seeing your blessings and enjoying them, sharing them. Now, we can focus on gratitude.  What are you grateful for today?  Right now? Let’s start with our life’s breath.  How about the computer we are sitting in front of that allows us to read […]

Abundance is YOURS!

Worried about stuff, lots of stuff? Like your job, or lack of one?  Or maybe overall financial concerns, how to make ends meet? First step toward abundance is to allow for abundance.  Well, who wouldn’t allow for such, you ask? In lay man’s terms, if we put our energy and emotions into a negative depleting […]
