Finding Love Again

Finding Love Again

Can we really fall in love again after experiencing loss and disappointment? This was the question I cynically asked myself seven years after my first marriage ended in divorce. To be clear, in the years immediately following the divorce I wanted nothing to do with finding love again. I wanted, and needed, to recover from the heartache and turmoil that occurred during my pre-divorce years. I was more than happy to focus on my family and just avoided dating. After several years of that mindset, though, I was ready for a new relationship and entered the dating world. There were […]

Gratitude

Gratitude

What do you do when you’re down-in-the-dumps and want to lift your spirits? A proven way to shift energy from negative to positive is to focus on being grateful. When you do so, you change your perspective from a scarcity mentality to one of abundance. A tried-and- true remedy for the doldrums is to ask yourself, what am I grateful for? There are other advantages to being grateful, as well. Literature has recognized the benefits of cultivating gratefulness as a virtue for thousands of years. More recently, through the study of positive psychology, mental health professionals are examining how virtues […]

Laughing is Good for You

Laughing is Good for You

Do you like to laugh? How do you do it? Are you one who likes to giggle, guffaw, snort… or do you smile quietly when something tickles your fancy? I’ve been thinking about the importance of a good laugh lately. At times, I take humor for granted but now it’s becoming clearer just how necessary laughing is for my wellbeing…and the wellbeing of my loved ones. Laughter releases tension, fear, and anxiety that weigh us down. It forms momentary time capsules of joy that bubble up from our center and burst effortlessly from our lips. Who can you count on […]

Are You Ready for an Adventure?

Are You Ready for an Adventure?

Are You Ready for an Adventure? 07.05.17 “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” ~ Helen Keller What do you think of when you hear the word Adventure? Daring…risky…exciting…maybe even a bit scary? Adventures often have an element of the unknown, risk, and perhaps danger. I’ve noticed that there are different levels of adventure that appeal to each of us. What thrills me may seem tame to someone else. What thrills someone else may seem impossible for me to do. Whether you’re quick to jump on board or prefer to think things through before taking a well-calculated risk, […]

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us. It is in everyone. And as we let our light shine, we give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson
