Vehicular and Spiritual Alignment

At the beginning of this road trip, driving through the mountains of Colorado pulling a pop-up trailer with a minivan was a harrowing experience.

The Blessing of Adversity

Adversity is rarely seen as a blessing. In fact, it often feels like the exact opposite of “blessing”.  At the end of May, I left my home community of Ellicottville, NY with the intention of settling in northern Michigan. Our family lived in Boyne City, MI when the kids were young and we still have…

The Path to Peace

I had a pet. It was actually not so much a pet as a dangerous and destructive rodent. It lived in my chest. It fed on self-righteous indignation. Sometimes it had a voracious appetite, other times I hardly knew it was there. I tried to ignore it, hoping it would go away. Just when I…

Mother

Mother. It’s hard to imagine a word in the human language that evokes a more diverse collection of emotions. That collection of emotions is deeply individual. No impetus in the human experience is more profound or formative than that of “mother”.  When I was a child, my mother was fiercely devoted to fostering independence. When…

Enjoying the Journey

There’s a familiar quote: “Life is about the journey, not the destination.”  That concept is so sweet in theory and so very sticky in practice. Let’s face it. When we identify something we want, it’s hard to wait for it to show up.  When money is tight, it’s difficult to enjoy a journey fraught with…

Quarantine / Pandemic Renaissance Period

Yesterday, I was having a conversation with my 16 year old daughter, Callie. To mitigate the mind-numbing boredom of a cold, wet, dreary April quarantine, she started painting.

Can’t Meditate? Try This.

My dear friend, Dionne Kress, inspired me to meditate on the words “The space between”.

The Gift of Loneliness

There isn’t a single human being on the planet who hasn’t experienced loneliness. Ironically, humanity is united in the shared experience of this deeply personal emotion. We all know what it’s like to feel lonely. What if loneliness is actually a gift? I spent quite a bit of time traveling in Eastern Europe in my early…

Why… Not How… Did I Attract This?

I Attracted This. Those words hold great power… but also great danger. Power comes from focusing forward: Why did I attract this? What golden nugget of wisdom and insight lies waiting to be uncovered? The danger comes from focusing backward: How did I attract this? Guilt and self-blame are not simply unproductive. They rob you…

I Attracted This

A couple days ago, I wrote “Want to Alleviate Anxiety? Set Goals.” The post is based on Carmen Marshall’s goal-setting formula.

Scrolling through Facebook stories yesterday, I found myself drawn to images of my Facebook family enjoying time in nature. Something deep inside cried, “There!

Want to Alleviate Anxiety? Set Goals.

During this time of uncertainty, everyone experiences a heightened level of anxiety. But what about people who were already struggling with feelings of anxiety? For many, this extra burden seems like more than they can bear. People who struggle with anxiety feel overwhelmed and powerless. After all, what’s more disempowering than a global pandemic???  …

Heart-Centered Leadership

Some people look at the life’s lemons and make a sour face. Lemons are unwanted, unappreciated, holding little, if any, value. Other people add a little of their own mental sweetness to life’s lemons, making a concoction that is beneficial and even enjoyable. Then, there are those rare individuals who grab the crate of lemons…

Corona Cloud’s Silver Lining

Earlier this week, CNN, BBC and other reliable news outlets reported unintended benefits of the coronavirus lockdown. China’s coronavirus quarantine likely saved the lives of 50,000-75,000 people who would have died from air pollution.  Marshall Burke, a researcher at Stanford University’s Department of Earth Science, calculates that that the two months of cleaner air resulting…

Things Happen For You… Not To You

In this past week, I’ve been reading about people who have done significant, important work either during or after slavery, imprisonment, confinement to a concentration camp, or loss of their sight or hearing.
