Merry everything and happy always!!!


How about a reframe from negative to positive thinking? It works if you work it!!


Yup! A whole Chapter on it in my book, in my book, available on all e-formats and on Amazon!!!


Living in the now and making concrete changes = happiness!


Your life, your choice!


Time to make some changes of picture no. 2 is what happens to you!


When the place you become used to is too painful, it’s time for a change.


Still love Brene Brown’s work. Practicing showing up takes courage and the action steps can be tough to figure out but sooooo worth it!


When you are “in it”, it can be hard to have hope for tomorrow. But this too shall pass. I help with what to do while you are waiting for “it” to pass already!


Pick your favorite and do it!!!


Anyone else feel like this through Covid???🤣🤣🤣


And sleep is the most restorative thing our body does!!! BONUS!!!

Stressed Out? This Breathing Technique Can Change It All! - Navigate Changes

Been laying low like a lot of people but this breathing technique really helps me.

Stressed Out? This Breathing Technique Can Change It All! - Navigate Changes The exercise is called the 4-7-8 Technique, and Dr. Andrew Weil calls it a “natural tranquilizer for the nervous system.” There are numerous studies that link meditation to better sleep, reduced anxiety and a host of other positive effects. This is an easy-to-follow exercise that will help you t...

Keep writing!!! It’s your show!!!


So it’s been “Spring break” and I use quotes cuz it hasn’t been for me.

My daughter has been off but I have been “on duty”. Driving, coordinating etc. my time has not been my own.

Today she is going to the beach with all of her friends all day and I find I’m so used to being “on” that I don’t know how to slow down now that I’m not an Uber driver.

It’s ridiculous that I can’t seem to slow down as I see this whole day in front of me with “nothing” to fill it!!!

I feel wired and like I “should” be ON!

The house is a mess so I “should” clean, I “should” do laundry, I “should” wash the dog, etc. etc. etc.

It’s like I get so busy that I go into auto pilot busy.

But I do have a choice. I can go for a walk, meditate, pray, read, relax. It can all wait and I can have one down day. I can relax even if I have to force myself out of the “busy mode” and into relax mode.

It’s a choice, but I have to consciously make it!❤️


Important to remember!!!


Calm can see you through the tough times.


How come we don’t collectively talk about dying, death and grieving in an open communicative way?

It seems to me it should be, so that we aren’t so taken aback when it happens or floundering for a way though.

I had a dream last night about my dad dying. He passed January 2019. Still seems only a year has passed not two.

I remember feeling almost a paralyzing vacuum where I was just existing, while the world went on about me at a dizzying pace.

I couldn’t talk to anyone except close family for over three months. I was numb. I moved through the days as if in a haze.

As year one passed and the focus was on Covid in 2020, the pain eased somewhat. The sharpness of it faded to a dull ache and the reminders came less frequently.

I felt more present and in sync again with the world. But then a doozy of a dream that feels so unsettling hits like a tidal wave, knocking me off center again.

The dull ache is still there but as I move on in my life, I know I have come to an uneasy truce with death and grief. I’m good with that for now.




I am loving this magazine for inspiration and journaling prompts. Try it out and let me know how you like it!


I definitely don’t want to return to the frenetic busy-ness😉


Write your own, “ I am from...”
I am sharing feom the magazine, “Bella Grace”. Love it!!!


We all go through tough times. No one ever said life was easy, but we can have and practice resilience and learn and grow if we are brave and have hope❤️


Make it a great year by living in the moment!

I have been having a mid-life crisis. I finally realized that is why I have been restless, irritable and discontent even though I have a great life. Lots of stressors have taken my attention over the last two years and I have gotten lost in doing, doing, doing and have forgotten how to just “be”.
After reading “A Year by the Sea” I know I can’t take a whole year but today I am taking a whole day away and in the way that I can! I will keep ya posted!!! Gonna have to start leading women’s retreats to share the joy!!!


How does a soul/self discovery weekend-women’s retreat sound to you? Stay tuned for more info !!! I’m gonna make it happen cuz I need to do it for me too❤️❤️❤️


Which are you?
