The ego, the soul and the social stream

The ego, the soul and the social stream

Social media. Love it, hate it, need it, avoid it — we are all on there for various personal, social and professional reasons. And yeah, it’s got its challenges. Making peace with this reality is neither easy nor quick, and lately it’s been top of mind for me as I go through my work day. A couple days ago I made a comment on a […]

Fix Her Crown

Fix Her Crown

When I ran across this image in my feed the other day, I shared it without hesitation. With all the negativity in the world, we need more focus on the positive, the lifting up, the heartfelt good. Later the next day, I found my self scrolling the #PermitPatty feed on Twitter, seeing all the nasty things being said about the white woman who called the […]

On Rituals … and the Value of Temporary Chaos

On Rituals … and the Value of Temporary Chaos

Rule #9 in 10 Little Rules for a Blissy Life is “Make Life a Ritual.” There is a certain comfort in routine. The morning cup of coffee is a perfect example. While some view it as a chore or a necessity, I see it as a way to reconnect to the waking world. So much of our lives rush by in a blur. We find […]

I’m good, thanks

I had a pretty great blog post all written and ready to publish. I’ll spare you the details, but this was the general gist…. via GIPHY   Personal development is a beautiful thing. I believe we are on this journey to continually learn from what we go through, to open our eyes to how we can be become even more. So I took my rant […]

FFS, Have a Little Faith, Woman

It’s not that hard. We get what we put out there. Our external life echoes the thoughts we have running through our heads. If our thoughts are chaotic and uncontrolled, we get chaos. If our thoughts are fear-based, we get a life filled with anxious moments. If we have a million conflicting dreams and desires, we experience unfilled wishes. And if our thoughts are calm […]

Rare, pshaw. Hardly!

Rare, pshaw. Hardly!

According to Apfed, Eosinophilic Esophagitis, a RARE DISEASE, affects 1 in 2,000 people. So, in the city of Ann Arbor, MI, where there are approximately 121,000 people living, we can hypothesize that there could be 60 people, who have eoe, walking through that college town of only 28.7 square miles. That is the most math I have done in quite a while, please don’t expect […]

At the intersection of gratitude and want…

At the intersection of gratitude and want…

If we are truly grateful, can we want? It’s on the top of my mind lately, as hubby and I go through the rigors of having our house on the market. It’s a great house, nothing wrong with it … and I truly am grateful that we’ve able to get here. So why we are selling? If we are really grateful, can we still want […]

Why do I make this so haaarrrrd???

Why do I make this so haaarrrrd???

Pardon me for whinging but seriously….why do I make things so hard? When faced with a decision, it’s as if there is only ONE right answer, and disaster lies behind the wrong choice. Hardly. Life is a brilliant stream of non-stop decisions, every hour of every day. Certainly some deserve more debate than others. What I’m having for dinner doesn’t demand as much thought as […]
