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...

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...

You are not broken. You are more ready than you think.

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....

Grief is its own Medicine

“Grief is itself a medicine.”                        ~~William Cowper (1731-1800) I went to visit my dad over the weekend.  It’s been almost five months since my mom died and Saturday morning we went to the cemetery.  It was an overcast Ozark day, one my mother would have called “dreary.”  Too many days in a row like that and I start to get sort of squirrely, but today I found the starkness of the country landscape beautiful.  It seemed like a good day to go to a grave. My mom is buried four or five miles back on an old country road, in Clubb Cemetery, outside of Zalma, MO.  The...
