As I began to love myself

I stumbled across this poem and it touched me deeply. Since I like sharing deep stuff, I thought why not share it with you, my dear reader. Ponder on it, process it and take it with you into the start on this week and beyond. The poem was written by Charlie Chaplin the famous entertainer of the silent film period. It is said that he wrote it on his 70th birthday! Go figure! I would hope he came to the realizations expressed in his poem before his birthday but stumbling into a great realization is a beautiful thing, no matter the age! As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is AUTHENTICITY. As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody as I try…

Writing Makes My Heart Merry

There’s something about pen on paper and keystroke followed by keystroke I find comforting. It’s almost as if with each stroke of the pen or strike of the keyboard, I feel my stresses and burdens leaving me. Something about opening up my mind and heart and sharing it on paper makes me feel strengthened, hopeful, bold and fearless. Through highs and lows the pen and the keyboard have been a source of solace, comfort and hope. I truly believe in the therapeutic power of writing. I believe in the power of the written word to change, shape, transform and empower. Join me in my signature program birthing and discover how writing can change your life and empower you.

When you were younger do you remember having disagreement with your family, namely your parents or your siblings? As you increased in age, there is a good chance that many of those arguments and disagreements disappeared, but, in adulthood, you may see them reappear. If and when the time comes, do you know what to do? Unfortunately, many women are unsure as to where they should stand or how to handle this important issue. When it comes to adulthood problems with family members, many women automatically think of problems that they have with their husbands or their romantic partners. While these are complications and issues that need to be dealt with, it is important to realize that there is a difference between your partner and the family that you grew up with. That is why it is important that you handle those situations and issues differently. One of the many…

Imagining a beautiful life – A physical perspective.

We each have much more to give than just trying to achieve a cultural beauty standard. You are beautiful right now, exactly as you are. Imagine waking up one morning to find that you are using your unique talents in a fully satisfying way, that you feel wonderful in your body, and that your life feels rich and complete. Now ask yourself, how much time and money have you spent trying to live up to the cultural ideal of female beauty? Every year Americans spend over $40 billion on dieting. People put massive life energy into studying the latest diet, planning menus, agonizing over food choices, depriving themselves, and doing forms of exercise they don’t even enjoy. There is so much more to life than the endless quest to make the body look like the cultural beauty ideal. It doesn’t have to be that way. Before the dieting craze began,…
