SMALL TITLE

December 4, 2019

I've never been to a live TED talk, but I love watching them on YouTube. Living in Boston most of my adult life, I was often able to attend tapings of interesting people at our local public television.  I remember the first time I saw Dr. Dwayne Dyer. For weeks after,...

Do you ever feel like you have a lot of unfinished business? Are there "to do" lists that haven't quite been "done"? Have you ever quietly beaten yourself up for just not getting to everything?  I'm just wondering because I've been there and I don't think I'm alone....

This week's Monday Quote has been credited to Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981), a Hindu guru. It's similar to many of the teachings with which I've been very familiar ever since I immersed myself in mindfulness and meditation many years ago.

A couple of weeks ago I came across a video on YouTube of Louise Hay discussing one of her most powerful affirmations,

As those of you who have been with me for awhile know and to those who are newer to the scene, I put out an MQ (Monday Quote) every other week and follow it up with a blogette, as I like to call it, on Thursday. As I looked at our MQ this week I wasn't sure where to be...

It's that time of year again ... I've just finished packing my car up and I'll be heading west by the time you get this bloggette. For the fifth year in a row I'm driving from Boston, Massachusetts to southern Oregon.

Even though I create several Monday Quotes in advanc...

When I travel, I often bump into how much I don't even know what I don't know.

"Travel has a way of stretching the mind." 

For example, until I actually visited Hawaii many years ago,...

I don't know about you, but navigating life can be baffling for me. 

  • Am I making the right choices? 

  • Why don't I already know that? 

  • Is my fear a "good" thing or a "bad" thing? 

Based on what I've learned so far, the answers to those three are:

  • Yes, b...

Someone recently told me they hated surprises. It's not the first time I've heard that and I always have to restrain myself from laughing because I know they're very serious. My guess is that it make them feel vulnerable and unsure of how to act or respond. The truth i...
