Life is hip!
Life is always perfect in it’s timing… Just not in our timing! I am sure you have heard this. “Everything in good (God’s) time.”. Divine timing is always on time. Do you believe it though? Be honest here. I would say , a conditional yes . In a world obsessed with NOW mentality, we allContinue reading “Life is hip!”
I went on a walk. It was sunny, the birds were singing, the grass and trees were bright and welcoming. There were baby bunnies stirring through the fields, ants were gathering their food, squirrels were watching with a sense of curiosity!I sipped my coffee from my take out and walked on. Walked right past aContinue reading “The Bee”
Woman Aboard — Unbridled freedom awaits
I step aboard… One small bag of clothes, no makeup, some food and beverages to fill our ice box and a heart filled with wonder. Immediately, I breathe in the healing fresh air, smell the mist on the lake and hear the calling of the wind beckoning me to play. I’m a sailor. And myContinue reading “Woman Aboard — Unbridled freedom awaits”

Wise One within
Many years ago, My Aboriginal (Native American to Americans) friend affectionately called Daddy Long Legs asked me “Grasshopper, what will my legacy be?” My 29 year old self replied, “I know, an old wise woman — wise beyond belief!” He laughed, “ah lace up those moccasins,young lady, you will journey to the valleys and peaksContinue reading “Wise One within”

A beautiful soul
Much of the world has been shocked by the death of undoubtedly one of the best character actors in our modern times. Philip Seymor Huffman was a giant in his field, a master, who could transcend himself and complete become the characters he portrayed. Apparently, he was a dedicated father, who like any average Joe,Continue reading “A beautiful soul”
Life is what WE make it.
Ever just do random surfing on the internet. I do! Today, I stumbled upon a video, quite by accident (wink). It was all about the life of Marvin Gaye. So much conflict, fight, and struggle…yet he passionately choose to express the essence of life through his voice. “If you cannot find peace within yourself, youContinue reading “Life is what WE make it.”

Searching but not finding… We’re lost in a masquerade.
It’s that time again. The trick or treaters will come a knocking. we all have a chance to put on a mask, wear some make-upor go out and find a crazy costume. I absolutely love Halloween. Why? Obviously, I love it because I am a kid at heart and am crazy about play. I thoroughlyContinue reading “Searching but not finding… We’re lost in a masquerade.”
I have been pondering on what love means. What I have come to know is that it is not a neatly packaged article… it is a magic that is often not easy to define. In my life, I humbly admit, that I have tried to tell people how to love. Not my clients, but theContinue reading “Perhaps LOVE”
Loving comes in many ways : Sex is Emotion in Motion
I was out for a drink the other night. The topic turned to sex! Yes sex.. why not! The patrons of the bar had told a group to take the conversation outside because it was ‘offensive ‘. At about that point, I arrived with my husband. Being a life coach, I was curious about theContinue reading “Loving comes in many ways : Sex is Emotion in Motion”

Why build a fortress?
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannotContinue reading “Why build a fortress?”

AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE- REALLY???
Make it EXTRAORDINARY! So this year, I want to speak about EXTRAORDINARY LIVES. I was watching a documentary on famous people and their extraordinary lives. How did it happen for them?

In our life, we will always have things go ‘wrong’. But it is what we do with afterwards that is important. Have you ever had the experience of making mistakes? Of course, you have! I know from my own conditioned responses, I have gone into either blaming others or beating myself. Ultimately, neither lead toContinue reading “Something wrong?”

Pourquoi se casser la tête?
Translation: why break your head? WORRY!!! Just have a look at this monkey. Tired? Lonely? Bored? I found him hidden amongst the throngs of tourists,in a quaint village called Pezenas, in the South of France. This weary soul showed me the effects of a ‘broken head’… exhausted by worry or some dis-ease. His head lays heavily uponContinue reading “Pourquoi se casser la tête?”
Moving , rolling, running, stretching Feeling free. Into the day, the night, the moment, any moment without reservation or hesitation. Letting anything, everything, all or none. Just move, glide and ride the motion. Trusting nothing, expecting anything. Being free to evolve. Riding a stream that knows no boundaries, has no rules to break or makeContinue reading “Stepping in”

“Il faut tourner… Roll Baby Roll
“Il faut tourner sept fois sa langue dans sa bouche avant de parler” Sounds foreign? It is too many! But this is not the case for my family. I lived with this expression each day at home. So what does it mean? Turn your tongue seven times in your mouth prior to speaking. Why now?Continue reading ““Il faut tourner… Roll Baby Roll”
Humbled by the crazies…
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’tContinue reading “Humbled by the crazies…”
Songs to inspire you…
I was sifting through all my music today and came across so many songs. It was so much fun just playing them. Some reminded me of times when I was young and innocent. Others, took me back to places of pain. Still more brought smiles across my face. Music has that power to pull usContinue reading “Songs to inspire you…”
40 came today
40 came in a day. She crept into my world before I had danced with thirty. She was here and it was time to let her in. What did 40 look like, act like, feel like? What the hell did she want from me? Would I like her, want to grow old with her?Continue reading “40 came today”
Lessons from Nature
Today, I had one of those exciting days. Not out with friends, not holding my lovers hand, nor having a bubble bath. I was doing the deadly duty of ripping out two months of over grown weeds in my yard. That’s what I get for leaving the country for a few months. I am notContinue reading “Lessons from Nature”

Is it so? If so.. so what now?
Is it so? The other day, I heard someone get very upset because she was cut from an interview process. She immediately went into the shaming and self-loathing stance. Here is what it sounded like: I am not good enough. They probably had another candidate in mind. I suck at interviews. I will never findContinue reading “Is it so? If so.. so what now?”
Let’s look inside and feel!
“What does it mean to know and experience my own nothingness? It is not enough to turn away in disgust from my illusions and faults and mistakes, to separate myself from them as if they were not, and as if I were someone other than myself. This kind of self-annihilation is only a worse illusion,Continue reading “Let’s look inside and feel!”
So, some of you might have noticed that I dropped off the face of the world. Well at least off this blog. I believe, I was and am still kickin very well! So here I am. I sat here thinking; What do I write? What do I say and how do I explain my absence?Continue reading “EXCUSES,EXCUSES,EXCUSES!”
What labels do you wear?
What labels do you wear? Many years ago, I was an elementary school teacher. I taught a wonderful class of second graders. Each day, I felt inspired and truly loved my work.
