How are you today | a check-in with myself

Recently, someone asked how it has been for me, since returning from the Mindfulness Retreat.  Have I been able to maintain mindfulness in my daily life?  I decided to check-in with myself for a 60-day review.

Some days are easier than others.  Some days I rock it, and some days I just rock the boat.  It is probably more appropriate to measure mindfulness in moments, not days. Read the rest of this entry »

Whitney is a Life Entrepreneur, role model, and inspiration to me.  Whitney recently welcomed her newest addition to the family, Taylor Olivia.  She has a unique birthing story.  I asked her to share a bit of her story – where she finds the trust and authenticity to be true to herself.

Stop excusing yourself | Start living a real life


I chose to run, then write.

My first message of the day, from my number one fan:  “Have whatever kind of day you choose.  Love you.”  Thank you for the wake-up call.  That’s right…my day is up to me and your day is up to you.  I am not sure what my day will look like, and I know how it will feel – peaceful and loving.  Read the rest of this entry »


Practice Crossing the Bridge

Crossing the BridgeI am excited to share my interview with a Life Entrepreneur.  She is also a mother of 3, yogini, dancer and choreographer, health & wellness advocate, and friend.  When I asked for the interview, she said, “Sure, but I don’t know what my story is.”  Exactly my point – Life Entrepreneurship is a habit, a lifestyle.  It is the essence of who they are, how they live, and what they have.  Read the rest of this entry »


Early to Rise and Other Habits of a Life Entrepreneur

The Sun and the Moon

The Sun and the Moon, this morning

Last week, my husband came home from getting a haircut where he had read an article about Benjamin Franklin, and said, “Do you realize you are saying the same thing Benjamin Franklin was saying almost three hundred years ago?”  It’s true – the message is old, and maybe it is time for a refresher course.

Primary School is the New MBA

A friend and fellow gardener contemplates, “I know education is a priority, but at what price?”  Here’s my response, in all its candor and honesty.  This one is a little longer than usual because the message is BIG.

“I don’t know what the future holds, and I know who holds the future.” Read the rest of this entry »


Spread Peace, Love & Laughter

Spread LoveCan you guess whose life purpose this is:    To Spread Love & Laughter?  This could be the purpose of a priest who adds comic relief with a ventriloquist show for children at the end of each mass.  This could be the purpose of a circus clown of Cirque du Soleil.  Or, this could be the purpose of a stay-at-home mom of three.  It is not what you do; it is how you do it that matters.  This is your individual contribution to the world.  This is the cool thing:  you get to give your life its meaning – not me, not your children, all you.  You get the privilege to create the meaning in your life, to find the sacred in the ordinary.   Read the rest of this entry »


Remember the Sabbath?

Remember the SabbathIt wasn’t so long ago that we had a mandatory day of rest.  Well, I suppose that was 30 years ago and something my children will never know, at least by mandatory standards.  Times have changed, and over time we have gradually done away with the day of rest.  So much to do and to consume, we have no time to rest for fear of missing out on something more.  What just hit me, the “more” that we are scurrying to find, is right in front of our eyes.   If we would only take a rest and be mindful enough to see the beauty and love among us.

In fact, our beliefs are so strong that we unconsciously seek alignment with our beliefs, even if they are faulty and limited. Read the rest of this entry »
