Presence without my story

Posted by:

I’ve been learning a lot about Life’s priorities lately.  And I want to emphasize that the priorities are Life’s, not those that my thinking, rational mind puts on its ‘should’ list.  Life does has a way of interfering with our best laid plans.

Life is what happens when we intersect with others.  Sometimes we like it and sometimes we don’t.  Sometimes, many times, it is quite inconvenient and has its way of twisting and turning us into outcomes we could never ...

I’m doing better than I thought

Posted by:

I’m doing better than I thought.  Let me explain.

I have always struggled with emotional eating.  You know, the kind where you just overeat because of feeling too anxious, too angry, too sad … too much.  It’s the type of eating that I have to justify, because I would never do it in my right mind.  Emotional eating can be vast and blatant or it can be as subtle as slipping a cookie when no one is looking.

I have always used ...

Monday morning punishment drills

Posted by:

Practically every morning when I wake up, my mind begins its daily grind and role as task master.  I woke up this Monday morning after having had a really fun weekend and, like the duty oriented taskmaster that it is, my mind began its daily analysis and to do list.

It didn’t feel good.  It felt mean and self defeating.  The judgment began, so quietly that I can’t even hear it, but boy oh boy can I feel it.  My mind ...

Spiritual and emotional indigestion

Posted by:

What do you do when life feels overwhelming?

I am faced with this challenge today.  There is more of life today than there is of me.  Even though this is challenging, I like to view it as a positive thing.

Imagine an empty life.  I personally can’t.  I like to bite off big pieces and chew them up thoroughly.  Sometimes, in spite of my best efforts to manage such big pieces, it causes spiritual and emotional indigestion!

But isn’t a little indigestion worth ...

Choose your highest good

Posted by:

I am really amazed at the impact stress has on my well being.  I typically strive to keep my stress levels really low.  I manage my time and try not to commit to things that will create conflict, stress or a situation I’d rather not encounter.  But still, these things happen.  Life happens.

And what matters most is how I handle it.  Last week was an example of super stress that I could not avoid.  I found that it had a ...

Getting healthy is a full time job

Posted by:

Getting healthy is a full time job.  I like to think I can fit it in when I’m not busy, but it really doesn’t work that way.  It requires a shift in mindset, a new paradigm deep inside my brain.  But what happens is that the old school voice is not so willing to give up its comfy nest.  Oh no.  It wants to hold on like a hungry dog’s jaws around a steak.

So I endeavor to understand the beast ...

The transformation officially begins on May 30th

Posted by:

CIMG5785Something is afoot.  For months, I have been feeling everything shifting.  My life feels shaken to the core, and in all the best ways.  Cracking open.  Chomping at the bit.  The walls are coming closer.  The shell is chipping away.  I feel a bursting forth developing in my bones.  Energy is gathering.  My body is healing and I am feeling all the anxiousness of an historic launch whose countdown ...

You don’t have to suffer

Posted by:

Back on the detox wagon again! This summer was a doozy, but the issues have been resolved and I started the fall needing to get myself back on track. So now I’m in the midst of the detox (I’ve been told that ‘cleanse’ is a better, less harsh word).

Last week, I taught a raw foods prep demo and we had a blast. I think everyone left inspired; I know I did. I have been so busy making healthy foods for ...

Addicted to excitement

Posted by:

Isn’t it interesting how addicted we humans are to excitement?

Now that the detox is over I’m not so revved up about cooking.  When the program was shiny and new, when I received my new dehydrator, THEN I was all over learning new food preparation methods.  It was exciting to try new recipes and see how they turned out.  But like with most things, my energy and interest waned when ...
