I LOVE Change! Or so I thought…

By | 2018-04-12T15:38:12+00:00 February 27th, 2018|Self-awareness, Self-love, Success|Comments Off on I LOVE Change! Or so I thought…

I love change. Don't you? I love change. Give me four seasons, load in lots of colors, throw in some comedy and tragedy, spice it up withchaos and grief and I am in heaven. I have always thrived on change. I'm at my best with some unexpected shakeup at work or at home. I rise to the occasion. Living, traveling to unknown places I think that's one reason I love to travel. And I don't do a lot of research in [...]

The Shape of Water – Lesson in help and support

By | 2018-04-12T15:39:36+00:00 January 16th, 2018|Self-awareness, Self-love, Success|Comments Off on The Shape of Water – Lesson in help and support

I saw the movie “The Shape of Water” yesterday with a friend. Have you seen it? A young woman pulls off what seems to be the impossible. How? With guts, determination, passion, and the help and support of her closest friends. She can’t do it without the support and help of her friends. Are you trying to do something without help and support? In late December, I decided to have a dry January. How could I do this? It’s [...]

No more excuses.  Isn't it time you stopped making excuses and gave meditation a go? It's so easy and you'll feel so good. It doesn't take much time. And with a little help and guidance, you'll wonder why it took you so long to feel this great! You'll be less reactive at work and at home. You'll be more creative and strategic and make better decisions. These benefits of sitting in stillness are immediate. You feel calmer, more peaceful, and [...]

More reasons to be grateful and appreciative

By | 2018-04-12T15:40:16+00:00 August 30th, 2017|Meditation, Self-love|Comments Off on More reasons to be grateful and appreciative

Almost every other day another email hits my inbox with an article telling me why I should count my blessings, be more appreciative or keep a gratitude journal. I don’t even have to read these messages. The subject line inspires me to stop and count my blessings, say an affirmation, or make a phone call to a friend to say hello. They make me want to indulge in self-care and reach out to those I care about. Not always… Occasionally though, when I read them [...]

Meditate and Be More Successful Or How Taking the Time to Sit in Stillness and Focus on Your Breath Can Benefit You at Work

By | 2018-04-12T15:40:36+00:00 July 11th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

When invited to sit in stillness, or meditate, at a retreat or while on vacation, many business people will welcome the quiet time but once back at home and in the swing of things, this practice may be forgotten. I know it was for me. I was introduced to mindfulness and meditation many years ago at a retreat spa. The mindfulness practices of sitting, walking, and eating stimulated me, shifted some things within me, and motivated me to make some [...]

2017 is YOUR Year!

By | 2018-04-12T15:40:48+00:00 January 2nd, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

2017 is your year! This year is all about you. This is not a selfish statement or idea. Taking the best care of you is self-love. Self-love is paying attention to you, being mindful of you. When you take great care of you, pay attention to you, and are mindful of you, you begin to experience life in a whole new way. You become more appreciative, joyful, loving, clear-minded, focused, curious, open, accepting, happy, peaceful, and calm. Work becomes easier. [...]

Wouldn’t it be cool to react with love?

By | 2018-04-12T15:42:06+00:00 July 29th, 2016|Uncategorized|0 Comments

"People all over the world, Join hands, Start a love train" ~ The O'Jays Ever since Dallas a couple of weeks ago, I've been dancing a love mix routine in my Nia classes. We've been focusing on LOVE with the intent to create love and spread love within ourselves, our communities and to infect everyone we meet with love by responding with love. I was reflecting on this...creating love, pausing and responding with love and then it hit me, what [...]

When you reduce the icky stress in your life, you live a better life - a happier, healthier and more joyful life. A more successful one, too. It's true.

If you take good care of yourself, you love what you are doing, then everything is in flow and everything flows easily through you and to you – family, friends, spirit, health, career, and money. If [...]

Autumn Leaves

By | 2018-04-12T15:42:28+00:00 November 12th, 2015|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Autumn leaves are falling all around us these days. There seem to be more on the ground than on the trees. Gypsy and I were walking this afternoon and it occurred to me that perhaps this year I missed the colors of the autumn leaves. Were they vibrant gold, crimson and orange? Did they shimmer in the sunshine, contrast greatly with the green pines and stand out beautifully against the Carolina blue sky? Or did it rain so often that [...]
