If you need a reminder that supporting your children is the right thing to do, I have a story for you.
I had forgotten that my mom played in a marching band in high school. Yesterday, quite by accident, we starting talking about it. We were sipping some hot tea and she told me the entire story of her experience. There were lots of obstacles thrown in her path - but she persevered in spite of them - and in spite of her parents.
It was the 1950s and my mom and her family had…Continue

Your goddess knowledge has always been there. You know what brings you harmony. The sound you make when you are singing from your heart reverberates all around you. It makes you feel dynamic, alive, connected and free. Your soul passion, the song you were meant to sing may not be in the form of a piano or music. It doesn’t matter what your medium of expression is. What’s important is that you don’t abandon it.
Your unique, truest self may be hidden. The fire of your souls’ song may…Continue

"Love is in need of love..." Thank you for those words Stevie Wonder. And I would tweek it slightly to say that love is in need of Self-Love today. How can we allow our bodies to become unhealthy, overweight, and stressed out, if we truly love ourselves?

Long before it was a song, the saying was a part of our conversation - and it's especially appropriate during February, the month of love:
Love makes the world go round.
With all this whirling, love can make you feel off balance and dizzy. Sometimes it's tricky to keep your personal world turning without having it spin totally out of control. Although our focus is most often on romantic love,…

Managing a successful business, like managing a successful relationship, is hard work. If you don’t have passion, it can feel like a thankless task.
Starting a new business can mean jumping many difficult hurdles. Making it through the first couple of years is a struggle, with many small businesses folding during this period. If you have a passionate belief in what you do, you are far more likely to persevere and succeed. James Dyson made 5,126 prototypes before he came up with…Continue

Winter is the coldest season of the year in temperate climates, between autumn and spring. At the Winter Solstice, the days are shortest and the nights are longest, with days lengthening as the season progresses after the solstice. The winter has also been described as a period of time characterized by coldness, misery, barrenness, or death.
How do you stay in tune with the flow of cold, misery and death?
I am in Northern California writing this on November 1st, and…

For this week's writing prompts from Mama Kat, I chose: What are you passionate about?
Well, OK, so this is an easy one and not a surprise to most: I'm passionate about health and fitness and keeping in shape.
I'll admit, the need to stay fit (read: hot) stems from my childhood insecurities. I never felt like I was the most…

So, I've recently reached so many of my goals lateley or am VERY close to achieving some of them, a place in life that I've really never been. As I work to get my mind around this new girl that I've become, I've let a bad habit creep in...making a bad eating decision and justifying it with all…
