The 10 Little Rules™

Sometimes the things that wreck us are the things that make us whole.

Those tragedies in life — big and small, massive and mundane, public and oh-so-private — can bring us to our knees. They can also help us uncover what’s real; they can force us to start truly listening to the voice of our own hearts.

So it was with me, after divorcing, losing a business, facing an empty nest and a scary recession, all within the space of a few months.

As I processed all of it, I discovered something remarkable: I’d been living my life by everyone’s rules but my own. My world had to implode to get me to see this.

Then one magical morning I sat down to write. Out of that morning came The 10 Little Rules for a Blissy Life, and a new approach to living that made me 100% responsible for my own happiness. And the idea  for 10 Little Rules™ was born.

Since that morning, I’ve connected with some amazing people who also want to share their rules for happiness, creativity, success and wholeness, and together we are creating the 10 Little Rules series of books.

We all need reminders to live by our own rules. We can all use a little help on our journey. That’s what we hope you’ll find on this site, in the books, on the blog and with our growing community of friends online.

Welcome to the 10 Little Rules.

the truth about Embracement

the truth about Embracement

Time taken on purifying, cleaning, dry brushing, shaving and moisturizing … polishing and doting on ourselves is necessary for the spirit.  I lovingly take extra time today to be pleasing to the eye, the smell and touch. Painstakingly picking the perfect jeans that hit exactly right on my kick ass new heels … the finishing touch.  As I sit on the floor and slide the first one on, I notice how […]

How is hope working for you right now?

How is hope working for you right now?

HOPE.  I used to think this word was an excuse. That it could mask pain and maybe even support a “why did this happen to me” mindset. It always seemed to come from need.  Hope seemed to require no real action, and did nothing. Nothing to get the car in gear and the pedal to the metal.  Well, the universe has sure taught me a […]

the bliss of a good list

the bliss of a good list

Among the things my youngest daughter and I share is a love of a good list. We’ve both been known to add something we’ve already done to our list, just for the pleasure of checking it off. When everything’s clicking, it seems like a dance … action, check, action, check … the movement is fluid and we are in flow. With that flow, comes the […]
