(I’M FEELING) HAPPY

I leave for Africa today. Gulp. By Tuesday evening I’ll be staring at a sky full of stars in the southern hemisphere. Holy.Shit. I’m not even going to pretend that’s not blowing my mind a little.   My heart is bursting at the seams. There is light shining out of my face. Out of my … Continue reading (I’M FEELING) HAPPY

GUILTY

Guilt. Today I want to talk about guilt. Now, before you start packing your bags just sit down and chill; we’re not going on that kind of trip. . . at least not this time. Today I’m talking about the kind of guilt that is self induced. The real kind. The ugly kind. The yucky … Continue reading GUILTY

AS THE RUSH COMES

TO DO: Get vaccinations done. Call Doctor’s office. Check on passport. Review flight path. Look into international phone plans. Catch up on the news (such as, uh, possibly at least the highlights of the Superbowl. . .). Finish moving into flat, which is upstairs. . .  Pretend to like stairs.  Clean old house. Clean new … Continue reading AS THE RUSH COMES

SIDEWAYS

Don't wait.  Change now. Get out of your comfort zone. Wake up and move differently. Create awareness. Be mindful. Live fully. Seize the moment. Grow. Get up and go for it. New Year, New You. . . Yep, it's still January alright, and as the nearest cardio room would indicate, we, as a general community, … Continue reading SIDEWAYS

Okay, so from my last post you learned about how to make today Friday, right? You totally read that. I just know it.  If you, uh, didn’t, well, you know, click here, read that, then come back here. Or don’t. Whatever. The point was, if you want to make a change in your life, the steps … Continue reading ONE MINUTE MORE

SAME AS IT EVER WAS

I’m about a week out from spending my first Christmas ever without my kids, and I gotta say, I’m not sure I’ve ever been quite this cynical about this whole deal. I don’t know if it’s the yoga, the meditating, the fact that my life is in a perpetual state of change at all times, … Continue reading SAME AS IT EVER WAS

SITTING WAITING WISHING

It has come to my recent attention that I, like several others I know (yes, that’s you I’m talking to) am putting the “pro” in procrastination.  Seriously. When life gets overwhelming, sometimes a little impromptu game of hide and seek occurs. The problem being, of course, everyone is hiding and no one is seeking. . … Continue reading SITTING WAITING WISHING

BURN

Today I told my class I would see them next week, on Monday. You know, as in five days from now. There was silence, confused looks, a question about whether or not there was class on Wednesday this week. To which I replied, oblivious, “you mean like today?” Ummmmmmm. Nooooooo. Nope. Just no. Today is … Continue reading BURN
