Three Things Matter

Three Things Matter: 1. How much you love. 2. How gently you love. 3. And how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you!!

Dedicating Your Self Care to Service

Where did the idea come from that self care was somehow, “selfish?”  In order to be of service to others, we need to take care of ourselves. If your friend is falling into a ditch and you were not healthy enough  nor strong enough to pull him or her out, then you might fall in… Read more »

Let the Energy Move You into a Year of Joy

My dad was not the scholarly type. He was a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy… in his life, he was a salesman, construction worker and real estate manager. So when he told me he was writing a book, I didn’t really pay attention.  In fact, in his 80′s, he took a computer course and fell asleep…. Read more »
