Exhaling 2017 with a whole lot of gratitude and Inhaling 2018

As I reflect on this last year, I am filled with gratitude for the people in my life. My world looks completely differently than it did a few years ago. My family has grown and expanded. I have no more dependent children. My business is being done remotely or in a shared work space when […]

Practicing letting go of expectations and going with the flow…the lessons of Fiji

It seems like forever ago that we left home. Our time away has been interesting. We had only a few days in Sydney before we headed over to Fiji. Exploring Australia has been left to the end of the trip. We were excited to check out Fiji and sad to leave Sydney. Sydney was a […]

Father’s Day Reflections.

I love days when we celebrate others! In an ideal world we would be given the opportunity to celebrate someone and / or be celebrated by someone every day.  Imagine how it would feel walking on this earth feeling acknowledged and the freedom to acknowledge others.  If I wasn’t so caught in my own thoughts, […]

Why Marry? A commitment of the heart with Vows and Promises

The decision to get married is an important one. Other than deciding to have a child, it’s probably the most life altering important decision we make in life. Marriage is not necessary for everyone but for David and I, it felt like a necessary next step. We could have continued living life as a married […]

Summer Solstice and taking action in the light

Happy Summer Solstice! Today, in the Northern Hemisphere, we celebrate the greatest space between light and dark, yin and yang, and the Heavens and the Earth.  For the last 6 months, since the Winter Solstice, yang energy has been rising.  Yang is often thought of as masculine energy and with masculine energy there is a […]

It’s Time to Celebrate the Summer Solstice with a Life Changing Workshop: Giving Definition to my SELF

Every once in a while as we ponder our life, the question arises: Who Am I? It’s a question that confuses most of us at some time or another and yet not having a clear answer can make life confusing.  How do we make decisions, important decisions in our life if we don’t have an […]

The car shopping vortex and enjoying the ride of life!

As someone who struggles to attach to physical possessions in any meaningful way, you can imagine my angst when it’s time to go car shopping.  It’s not the top of my priority list and although I try to get excited about the thought of a new car, it just doesn’t resonate through me.  I’m not […]

Birthday Surprises and Gratitude…

I remember the day back in the dead of winter when my dear friend Maryanne told me to block off a couple of dates in the spring as she had some surprises planned for my birthday.  She was giddy with excitement and I remember feeling how much I wanted to know what she was excited […]
