“REFLECTION IS THE LAMP OF THE HEART. IF IT DEPARTS, THE HEART WILL HAVE NO LIGHT.” – Abdullah ibn Alawi al-Haddad, (17th century spiritual master) My sweetie and I have just completed our 14 day “voluntary” isolation after returning from the USA. We have chosen to stay in isolation way past this 2 week time […]
Last week I lost one of my 6 siblings. My brother, Scott, just 61 years old, has gone to be with other family and friends who have left this world. https://www.mundellfuneralhome.com/notices/Scott-Mundell Scott was such an athletically talented and comedic character. I grew up just behind Scott. He and I were 2 years apart in age […]
Wow….it’s that time of year again. My mother always told me that life goes by faster as we get older. With Christmas upon us again, I’m inclined to agree with her analogy in this regard. It seems like Christmas 2018 just passed and here we are at Christmas 2019. Speaking about my Mom….my beautiful and […]
It’s that time of year when we all need to take stock of all the amazing things we are blessed with. THANKSGIVING WEEKEND is here. What better time is there than this weekend to do a “gratitude inventory”. Life gets busy. Time passes by. We all have things that cause us stress, keep us on […]
I’m always looking for a good life lesson….a story about someone who has overcome adversity, or a lesson shared between a parent and a child to teach the child how to live strong and compassionate and well. There are so many life lessons out there to grab onto. If you are looking for them you […]
Another year has flown by and we find ourselves on the doorstep of Thanksgiving 2017. We all have so much to be thankful for. It’s a good time of year to revisit your list of things to be grateful for. In this busy world we tend to take many things for granted and forget that […]
I love myself. I’m comfortable in my own skin. I’m confidant. I do not self-sabotage my health. I surround myself with people I love who love me back. These are all components of self-love. I am older and wiser and now feel that I’ve finally come into my “own” so to speak. With this wisdom I […]
I have posted about gratitude a few times in the past. It’s one of the key emotions to keeping us emotionally healthy and happy in our day to day lives. I am in desperate need of a refresher in this area. Yes….me. I have been dwelling a bit too much on the fact that my […]
Mother’s Day is this Sunday….. that special day to officially celebrate our Mom’s and all they do for us and all they are to us. I am blessed to still have my beautiful Mom in my life. She’s been everything positive a Mom could possibly be to me over my lifetime. A caregiver, an educator, […]
A new year, a new you. We all wake up January 1st hopeful and optimistic that this year will be better than last year. We make promises to ourselves and our loved ones that this is the year I’m going to do better, be better….and on and on and on it goes. Why not change […]
