A Declaration of Self Care

Hello all!  This is a wonderful post originally from Mara Glatzel.     I love this, I preach this, I believe this and I wanted to pass it along.  Allow yourself to work with yourself today, and be gentle with you.  We are all we have, sweet friends, and we are enough.  You are enough.   There is enough today…enough time, enough money, enough love, enough breath.  So for just a second, relax your shoulders.  Take a deep breath and allow that Calm Voice to whisper encouragement in your ears.   There is only now, so deepen into the moment and allow yourself to Be Here Now.  You are worth...

Gardening is the most therapeutic and defiant act you can do, especially in the city.  Plus, you get strawberries. ~~ Ron Finley   Hello all!   In honor of Mother’s Day, I spent the weekend planting a crazy organic garden, playing in the dirt.  I planted about 60 or so cucumbers, aka Pickle Seeds.  I planted an equally ridiculous amount of tomatoes and assorted other edibles…  Some peppers, more salad greens, tons of sunflower seeds and a variety of other things.  The garlic I planted last fall is coming up like crazy, the herbs are on full display and things are blooming...

I’m Actually Not That Busy, Either

  Hello all! I saw this post and wanted to share it.   I’m coming off a several day silent retreat and this was a perfect reminder as I do re-entry. This is a a total cut and paste, I have added nothing to it.  The original post from SuperHero Life, by Andrea Scher, can be found  here.     Enjoy 🙂     This is my new mantra: I’m actually not that busy.   It doesn’t sound spiritual or like something you heard at your yoga class. It might not even feel true the first few times you say it!  But it’s changing my life.   My aha moment came when I saw this graphic...

Look for the Helpers

 What can we say about the events in Boston?  So much pain and so much suffering, in Boston and all over the world.  Our hearts ache in compassion for those impacted and those working to help, in Boston and all over the globe.   In the last 72 hours, there have been bombings in our country and others, earthquakes with scores missing or dead, other natural disasters, other personal losses and so much pain and confusion.    In times such as this, I  think it’s human to want to retaliate, to add aggression to an already confused and painful situation, to want to strike out in our own pain...

Hello all.  This is a straight cut/paste from Mara Glatzel’s blog, and we thank her profusely for posting it.  So, if you had the world’s undivided attention for 10 seconds, what would you say? Without further ado, here is her beautiful post, the main site can be found here.  You Are Not Broken. You Are More Ready Than You Think. On Thursday, I came across a prompt from Erika Lyremark from The Daily Whip that said: If you had the world’s undivided attention for 10 seconds, what would you say?  My fingers started to itch and I clung to a voice that begged: your truth. 10 seconds....

World Hunger Day Fast for Charity

Posted by on Oct 3, 2012 in Emotions, Happiness, Healing, Peace, prayers, Spirituality | 0 comments

Hello all! I know it’s been awhile!  Things are good here and I’ve been out living life instead of blogging about it.  More to come on a recent trip and much more. In the meantime, I wanted to update you on some things that are coming in October.  This time of year is traditionally about honoring the cycle of the seasons, pausing to reflect on our abundance and blessings, and preparing for winter.    To call attention to the ways in which many people on the planet are unable to take part in the abundance of harvest, UN World Hunger Day is held every October.    Also called World...
