Happy New Year! 2018 is in the archives. I hope you had moments that made you grin and that you're able to put the more challenging ones in perspective. As always, I'm working on this! A few nights ago, I fell asleep early as Gil and the kids were watching the final Lord of the … Continue reading Whoa, 2019 – Happy New Year!
Sometimes I find myself full of advice. I have these sparks of wisdom, though it's rare that I share them for fear of looking like a know-it-all. I SO don't know it all. Occasionally, though, words fly out of my mouth before I'm able to hit the pause button and self-edit...and it's a good thing. … Continue reading Moments That Matter
If I ever get around to posting all the thoughts in my head and notes scribbled in my journal, I won't know what to do with myself. It's been a hectic few weeks as we prep for a new school year while moving boxes out of our old house as we get it ready for … Continue reading So Many Thoughts on a Steamy Friday…
I've mentioned that I have focus issues. I know. I repeat myself regularly. Stay with me. I'll do my best to not bore you with the ALL the hairy details. Recently, I was talking to a friend who's also a busy mom. She takes care of her small farm, runs a business, and is active … Continue reading Smartphone Quandary
I'm back! I attempted several drafts...in December...then in January, trying to succinctly sum up last year and offer hope for 2017. But truthfully, I've been a little down. 2016 was a good year for Grief Happens. I posted regularly, saw an increase in views and gained more followers, but for some reason, rather than feeling … Continue reading Happy February!
"You need bodywork," my wise friend said matter-of-factly. I knew she was right. This misalignment often happens to me when I spend too much time in my head -- working, writing, over-analyzing. But this is more than that. This is something that's been going on for a long time now, and something I've turned away … Continue reading Bodywork, Yoga, Grounding
Hey, friends. I'm alive -- just trying to hold it together as we're in full swing this summer. It's a busy season for sure. Lots going that I hope to share with you all soon. Here's a quick (for me, anyway) summary: I quit Facebook and am detoxing pretty much from all social media … Continue reading Summer Update: Writing, Music, Meditation & a Social Media Sabbatical
I got this question from a quirky neighbor yesterday. And why, you might be wondering, would I ever share the fact that I'm trying to meditate with a random person I know virtually nothing about. This, my friends, is the beauty of having children. My kids are participating in a neighborhood swim team this … Continue reading So How’s That Meditation Stuff Going?
How many of you meditate? Do tell. What's your approach? Do you use an app? Do you go to a meditation group? Do you like guided meditation? TM -- Transcendental Meditation? I've explored meditation here and there throughout my adult life but rarely with much consistency. I did a few of those free 30-day meditations … Continue reading Stop, Drop, and Meditate
Check out this fabulous post by my partner, Maggie, over at Live. Snap. Write. I hope all of you are staying warm and surviving winter (or summer for many of you.) It hasn't snowed in Coastal Georgia, but if I never see another rainy, overcast day I'll be okay. However, Maggie helped me shift my … Continue reading The Blizzard’s Lesson
