Supreme Self Care–Keep Promises to Yourself

As the new year begins, there is the flush of a fresh start, the inspiring hope and excitement that things can and will be different. Unfortunately, that inspiration of change soon fades into quickly forgotten self-promises. Quickly followed by our “inner mean girl” who berates us and tells us know once again, we’ve failed. Ugh! […]

One Women’s Journey and a Mantra

I was profoundly awed by one woman this week. With little fanfare, Diana Nyad became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida. The stats were impressive–over 103 miles, 53 hours, 23 knot squalls and 3 foot waves. This was  her 5th attempt at 64 years old, 35 years after her first attempt when […]

On a Threshold of Something New

Recently I voluntarily transitioned from a wonderful 30 year career to a “I don’t quite know what yet time” in my life. I am fortunate because I made this decision consciously in my time.  It wasn’t thrust upon me, as is often the case in these precarious, changing times. However, it has landed me into […]

We just don’t have the luxury of procrastination

As a lifelong procrastinator, I finally have fully embraced the mantra “do it now!” I had a habit of putting things off until the last minute for many reasons. At no time is dealing with procrastination more relevant than in our “bonus years”. At this fabulous time in mid-life, I am so grateful for each […]

Ditch the resolutions….I did!

This year, unlike in the past, I deliberately decided NOT to write out resolutions, set goals or intentions for the year. It just makes me feel bad in mid-January. So, I made it really simple this year. It’s actually a technique I learned from Mother Nature and years of gardening. If you don’t want weeds, […]

You are the Somebody Special

Join Nancy and Cherryll as they talk about how “You are the most important person in your life.”

Big Leaps and Baby Steps

In  times of major transitions, we impatiently want to leap ahead of ourselves and onto the next thing.  Often without much thought. In my experience, this rarely works….the best forward movement in these times seems to be by small turtle steps.  Remember the tortoise and the hare?  Most of us have moved through our lives […]

Saving for a Rainy Day

Well, it’s raining this week in northern California. I love the rain.  The smell of rain–fresh and clean. The sound of rain tapping on the garden shed outside. The feel of rain as chilled wet drops hit my face. Even the taste of rain….now that’s pure and refreshing! Watching rain as its hits the ground, it seems to bounce up.  All my senses are at […]

Are You a Walking Head?

Aside from dressing in the morning, how much attention do you pay to your body? Sure we notice stiffness, or pain when we move. However do you notice when everything is working well? Do you appreciate the softness of you skin, the strength of your bones and muscles, or even how efficiently your body regulates […]

What’s a girl to do?

After college I worked for a typewriter company selling ancient pre-computer writing devices. At the ripe old age of twenty seven, I retired for the next 18 years to rear my two children. At age forty five, I began thinking about rejoining the adult world and took a look around to see what that was […]
