I have a story about light overcoming dark. A story that I lived recently. A story you might benefit from.

The coffee shop closed earlier than I thought it would, shortening my meeting time. <grumble>

I went to visit two friends in the hospital, anticipating being able to charge my…

Sheer determination and purpose. With its head thrown back, wings pressed against its body, and its feathers barely moving from the speed of the movement, the phoenix rose from the ashes on a mission. What a vision of transformation as it relates to living your truth and celebrating life!

That…

I see gratitude and hear appreciation as people tell me how I’ve inspired them to become sugar-free, or at least to greatly reduce their sugar intake. People are amazed that I would give up alcohol (that’s a positive and negative sense of amazement on their part, by the way!) A…

Two women in my life gave me my first lesson in mindset — as far as I remember. Ruth and Betty (not their real names).

I’d known Ruth for years. When I met Betty, I learned both women were 60. They couldn’t be more…

Maryland’s Eastern Shore used to be such a great playground for me! Riding the waves with my body as the surfing vehicle was so much fun to learn to do! Hunting the best wave and then riding it to the shore was thrilling! For days I perfected my skills…until the…

Three wolf-spiders were allowed to live in my…

The opinions range among: focus on your weaknesses to make them strong; ignore your strengths; ignore your weaknesses; focus on your strengths. Eegads! Which way do you turn with that kind of discussion going on around you?

Transformation is inspired from any number of directions, and sometimes from surprising places within you. That’s been true for me. One such transformation was an interesting experience, maybe because it was internally motivated.

During a mastermind meeting, we had a go-around-the-room discussion of what changes we were going to make…

One of my early favorite jokes was “What’s black and white and read all over?” You have to hear it to really appreciate the silliness of it. The answer is “A newspaper”, if you don’t remember this old, bad joke. Part of what I love about jokes is how they…

I didn’t use to think about transitions in my life. Their value and impact were highlighted for me when I took the Modern Elder Academy Online course. A big focus there was the transitions we go through in life, and the stages of the transitions. The conversations around this opened…
