Lil’ Bits Are Meant to be Shared…

Perhaps I have told this before – but today with a new twist. I have a large, musical family – yes, imagine the old television show Partridge family come to life. Everyone had a voice and or an instrument. I tried…I really tried…the piano, the violin, even the ukulele. I never made Glee Club like […]


The Shout of Self-Doubt…

A trip to the dentist. “Mr. Dentist, something is wrong with my right jaw. It’s painful.” “I don’t see anything on the x-ray – just a little inflammation. Maybe your gums are sore. Try this antiseptic rinse. You will be all better in 3 days.” Introduction….Self Doubt. You are just being whiny. Toughen up. Sore gums? […]


Like the Fallen, Intact Camellia…

Seeing camellias that fall still intact from bushes makes me stop and pause in a melancholy kind of way.  After rain storms this time of the year, it is not unusual to see such a scene. I noticed this on my walk this morning and I began to think about loss. There are times in […]


Me? I Choose to Use A Pencil…

I’m a planner geek. I love personal planners, A5 planners, mini planners. I love all the stickers, fancy pens, and embellished paper clips that make planning so fun…it’s a cross between planning and scrapbooking. But one bit of wisdom I’ve learned as I look to my day, week or months ahead… Expectation or Acceptance? I […]


Obstacles, Stepping Stones and Marching UP?! …

My quote board reads this week… “Obstacles can be turned into stepping stones.” This wisdom was shared with me by one of my clients who has taken this attitude to move forward in a life that has been punctuated by hard times. And then another client added her understanding to the quote with this question… […]


Lights of Hope…

I have noticed many more Christmas lights decorating the outside of homes and businesses this year…maybe I am just more aware. Net lights, bulb lights, white lights, multicolored lights, flashing lights, and my personal favorite this season – projector lights- the easy way to decorate…lighting up whole buildings and homes and even surrounding trees and […]


Dryness and Blossoming…

I was recently given a Christmas Cactus as a gift. Not knowing much about the plant I did some research to learn how best to care for it. Interestedly, I learned that in order to get the fullest, healthiest blooms one should stop watering the plant after October allowing the soil to become dry. When the soil […]


Personal Patina and the Wisdom We Wear…

I’ve been given some lovely silver trays, bowls, and serving pieces that have been passed down through generations. This time of the year I begin to think how I would love to use them for holiday dinners…but then I think of the polishing…and the polishing…and the polishing and then it never really looking like the […]


What does your email inbox say about you? …

You wake up…grab a cup of coffee…you have just a few minutes before the true morning rush begins… You open your emails hoping to read your favorite Lifelines blog to begin the day on a good foot … And you are BOMBARDED with your e book bargains for the day, faux leather trends you need to wear this […]


Turn it Upside Down…

I am a “weekend artist” who loves the freedom of splashing brightly colored paint on blank canvases and discovering what they can become. Once a fellow artist gave me some artistic advice that helped take my work to a new level. She shared that when looking at a photograph or a picture that I was […]
