A friend/client messaged me earlier this week asking what I had planned for her personal training session. My response? “IDK.” Yep. Twenty four hours prior to her arrival for her personal training session, and I honestly had no idea what I was going to do with her or for her. Now, before you freak about …

1. Coffee without whipped cream out of the spray can just isn’t the same at 5:30 AM on a Saturday. 2. Cats aren’t the only mammals with 9 lives. Apparently some humans have that many, too, and save them for years 80-90. 3. Roller coasters are made of many different substances. In my case the …

Amazing Morning

Fall is here. The calendar says so. My pansy butt goose bumps say so. The cars that park up and down the street in front of the wellness center every Thursday and Friday night say so. The lazy sun who keeps sleeping later and later seems to be saying so, too. This morning was one …

This week has been full of enlightenment. Several lessons have come about as a result of my adventures. 1.

My children are fabulous entertainment for company. …

Summer vacation is here, and this time, it is here in a very big way. My job with the school district is over. Ended. Done. That should mean time to relax, plan, create, enjoy, and did I mention relax? Relaxing probably isn’t going to happen at this point. The rest of the month of June …

Intuition + Self Care + Intuition + Intuition = Perfection

Yesterday, I took the day off. I had good reason, but I could have easily pushed through and gone to work. Munchkin would have been fine at home by herself resting. But I didn’t. Something inside of me said to stay home. Rest. Be with my kid. Read. Write. Rest. Cook. Rest. Eat. Rest. I …

It’s Easter Sunday morning, and for probably the first time since I was conceived, I won’t be at an Easter church service. It’s been almost a year since we went to church….any church. It’s nothing personal at this point. I’ve just got better things to do. That used to really bother me, and I guess …

The Prayer is the Feeling, Not the Words

When I was a kid, say about ages 6 through….oh….37, I had a relationship with prayer that was….uhm…..less than spiritual. Actually, me and a girlfriend would usually sit together during church and (forgive me Father for I knew not what I do-ed) <embarrassment ensues> time them….with a watch….with a second hand, which wasn’t necessary because …
