We the PEOPLE’S New World Vision

I had the entire day--the entire weekend, actually--all planned out and then when I awoke this morning, I didn't feel right. Nothing really specific, just sort of 'off'. I started the day with some yoga, hoping it would bring me out of it, but afterward I felt the same. I continued to get ready for … Continue reading We the PEOPLE’S New World Vision

A simple daily practice

I learned this daily practice from a webinar that Bob Proctor gave recently. This is my interpretation of the process: *Write down 10 things for which you are grateful. *Send loving-kindess to 3 people who feel challenging to you. *Sit for 5 minutes and ask for guidance for the day. That's it. I decided to … Continue reading A simple daily practice

Be an overcomer

We all have things happen to us in life. Some are wonderful. Some aren't. It's how we respond to adversity that makes all the difference.  We can succumb...or we can overcome. Most of what happens in our daily life is probably fairly benign.  It's when the big things, the unexpected, the often unwanted things happen that … Continue reading Be an overcomer

BOOK REVIEW: Informed Consent: Critical Truths Essential to Your Health and to the Health of Future Generations by Michele Stanford, M.Ed., CHC

I began to read Michele’s story and as a woman, my heart was filled with compassion and empathy for her and the situation she was in. As an RN, my heart was filled with rage for how this patient was treated by her physician! Michele was not defined by her circumstances, however. Rather, she decided … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: Informed Consent: Critical Truths Essential to Your Health and to the Health of Future Generations by Michele Stanford, M.Ed., CHC

What if Tiffany Stayed with Ezekiel?

I was listening to the news today, which I generally go out of my way to avoid, when I heard about an NFL player being suspended for alleged violence against his now-former girlfriend. Good, I thought. Stop enabling domestic violence perpetrators to perpetuate violence against women by hitting them where it hurts: in their wallets. … Continue reading What if Tiffany Stayed with Ezekiel?

Spartanized

This podcast by Jodi Flynn (Women Taking the Lead) with Joe DeSena caught my eye because 1. I love Jodi's Podcasts and 2. My nieces and nephew just completed a Spartan Race (not the first for some of them). Much of the conversation really resonated with me! I was shocked, because whenever I hear about … Continue reading Spartanized

Who am I? RESULTS!

So, the results are in! No big surprises to be found here. I am happy to know what I am made of, so to speak. I am grateful to my husband for giving me this gift. No Atlantean heritage in this mix. No Lilliputian. Just about a 50/50 split between Southern Europe (Italian) and Northwestern … Continue reading Who am I? RESULTS!

Who am I really?

My husband was very inspired this year with his choice of birthday gift for me. He got me the MyHeritage DNA kit.   Me: How did you know I wanted to do that?! He: Because every time a commercial for it came on or anyone was saying they did it for the last year, you … Continue reading Who am I really?
