Elevator Encounters…

Elevator rides…aren’t they funny? Recently I was in an elevator and one woman told us she had just become a great grandma. Showing us all her pictures she exclaimed, “my little chunky monkey”. This caused a man riding to chuckle causing a teenager to hide her head and roll her eyes which started another woman […]


Yellow Almost Red Light Kind of Day…

I was off to a dr. appointment and running a bit behind schedule, I was catching all the yellow lights. I thought to myself, I am having a yellow almost red light kind of day. It was as if the whole world was urging me to slow down. How easy it is on a yellow almost […]


Happiness Supplement…

Where is your happy place? That place you can go where you feel the release of life’s stressors – almost imperceptibly your tense muscles soften, your breaths become deeper, your mind becomes quiet. Mine is the beach…Just a little, isolated beach where often the closest people are way more than a stone’s throw away. Here […]


Supercharge Your Day…

Upon leaving for work one day this week, my husband called after me… “Make the world a better place today.” During the ride to work, those words seemed to hang in the air. How often do we begin our day three steps ahead…I have this to do, I have to complete this, this matter can’t […]


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 […]
