Here’s what really matters

It’s the last day of 2017 and I have to say that I’m really, really glad to be through this year. 2017 has been the most challenging year I can remember experiencing as an adult. From some personal things going on with my family (that I haven’t yet totally talked about here but I do […]

Well, Let’s Hear It…

2018! One reason I LOVE the New Year is because so many of us finally take a moment to slow down, become aware, reflect, and move forward! (I wish everyone did this all year!) What do you want to start, stop, do or create in 2018?   Let’s hear it! (PS: I can’t wait to […]

I feel terrible…

Yesterday morning at about 5am, my dog Tuukka climbed on to the bed to greet Kevin and I good morning. This is her normal routine and she hates sleeping with us since we must take up room on the bed with our physical bodies. (She’s really said that to me before!) Anyway, as she was […]

About my husband…

I can’t remember if I mentioned this last week, but Kevin and I finally got away this past weekend. For, and this is not an exaggeration, the first time since 2007 we took a romantic getaway. And, after reading that, I’m sure you’re not surprised that it was a very needed, pretty incredible weekend for […]

Who’s making your decisions?

It’s a really interesting thing, this thing we call FEAR. Most people assume it’s an across the board thing – either you’re afraid or you aren’t. Either you go for it or you don’t. In my experience, fear is something else – something very big! Years ago, even though my intuition said it was time […]

What to say when a pet dies

It’s 4am and I’m awake. Again. I feel like I should be able to sleep until my alarm goes off. This whole 4am thing is a whole lot less useful than you’d think. I always set my alarm for 6:30am, but that’s not the timeline that my body is on. Alas, it’s very early and […]

Power Missing Anger #3

I believe (unless I’m moved to change my mind LOL) that this is the last part in the Power and Anger series. If you want to read part 1, go here and part 2, go here. One of the things I’ve learned about over the years is how difficult it is for me to access […]

Power and Anger Series #2

So, I have no idea how long this Power and Anger Series is going to continue. Perhaps it’s just my last email and this one… but two makes a series so here goes! If you want to read the first email in the Power and Anger Series, go here before continuing with this email. Otherwise […]

How do YOU get angry?

It’s a bit after 9am and I’m finally back in Massachusetts. I returned from Costa Rica to no power, no lights, no nothing! Kevin and Cole had gone out to fetch some dinner since we hadn’t had power for two days and they took Tuukka with them, since she wasn’t enjoying the pitch dark house. […]

Want more control?

OK, this is not a joke. As I’m sitting here writing this, there are workers outside on the street using a jackhammer. Or maybe lots of jackhammers. I think it’s lots of jackhammers. For hours it seems so far. Really probably really only an hour – but really?! Jackhammering??!! Anyway, I’m going to ignore it […]
