Even the Buddha Got Stuck

We all have our moments of stuck-ness. Or weeks. Or months. We come in and out of it....of being in the flow and so connected in so many ways, creating magic....and then other times we feel like we can't manage to even pull ourselves out of bed, or decide what to eat for breakfast. When we find ourselves "stuck"...it's so easy to beat ourselves up about it wondering what we did wrong. What we did or didn't do, should have done [...]

The Magic Formula

The universe is ALWAYS speaking to us, sometimes in subtle ways, other times, more like a bonk on the head. That is a given, there is nothing we have to "do" to have it speak to us. We do, however, have to take the time to LISTEN. Which often means being more aware, creating space for that awareness by being still, pausing, listening, and being open to what is being said. The week before last for me was a doozy. I [...]

Loss is Loss

Yesterday, we had a bit of a trying day with my family. Nothing major, just everyone being in a funk at the same time. It seems the more people I talk to lately, it's kind of like a cosmic epidemic of funkiness at the moment. Seems like realities are shifting, systems are getting upgraded, our world is changing and at times it feels like "forward progress is STOPPED" intermingled with "EVERYTHING IS FALLING APART" and a dash of "WHAT THE HELL WAS I [...]

The Undoing

Imagine the possibilities... It's funny to me that it has been 8 months since I "left my day job" as a public school teacher, yet I still feel the passing of time in terms of the school year.  For instance, my husband and I were talking about probably not being able to make plans this year "for Spring Break"....when I realized that no longer applies to me! I  am no longer limited to that ONE WEEK IN THE SPRING [...]

Our BIG Night

  Every night we have a routine. It has pretty much been consistently the same, with a few slight variations  since my son was about 3 months old. Relaxing music on his iPod plays in his room, we do bath time (I must restrict the number of Hotwheels cars he is allowed to bring into said bath to 7, don't ask), I, or his Dad, or both,  put on his pajamas, we read a book or two, I "help him" brush his [...]

Follow the GPS in your Heart

Corn maze 2012 A few weeks ago I had an amazing experience that seems to keep nagging at me, reminding me to put it down in writing and put it out there....so here I go. I had been invited by a dear friend to go to a women's circle gathering, and even though it was a crazy busy time for me, and it was located over an hour away from me, in Miami, and I'd have to travel through multiple [...]

Where will YOU go?

Tiger, tiger, burning bright... Every night as part of my son's bedtime routine, we pick 1 or 2 books to read. My son has loved books since he was a toddler (as do I) and his collection started even before his birth. So the nightly reading can range anywhere from"Everyone Poops" (no I'm not kidding and yes, he's been potty trained for years) to Ranger Rick magazine, to "The DK Encyclopedia of the Human Body" (limited to 5 [...]

The "Back to School" that wasn't

This past week was tax-free saving week a.k.a. back to school shopping week here in Florida. So I did what any respectable parent and teacher would do, go shopping for back to school clothes and supplies. But what you don't know is for teachers, it is about that same  time where we start to feel the "Oh my God, is the summer really over? Do I really have to go back so soon? What's my schedule going to be like? How [...]

The Highly Sensitive Gardeners

Gardening to me is therapeutic. I love being outside surrounded by nature, feeling with wind, the sun, and the soil between my fingers. Planting seeds, or a tiny plant, is like the opportunity to aid in bringing forth new life into this world. You plant them, nurture them, tend to them, and wait, wondering what exactly will come of the hard work and love that you’ve put into the process. My 4 year old son and I often garden together. [...]
