EMDR Explained!

I don’t know about you, but I didn’t know much about EMDR, a therapeutic technique used by our counselor Risa Bos. Risa very kindly sat down to help me understand, and I thought our conversation might help others understand too. Would you like to know more about EMDR and how it could help you or someone you […]

Acceptance: Because we can’t change the past

This post about acceptance has been rankling around in my brain for weeks now. Funny, because I think that’s kind of what happens when we need to accept something (it takes time and isn’t quite what we expect). Recently I posted about perception and promised a post on how to change your perception. I think […]

Messages to yourself

Have you ever found something you’d previously written, done, or created and realized you’d found it at just the right moment or suddenly had a whole new perspective on it? Have you ever shocked yourself with your own previous knowledge or understanding? Messages from ourselves can come in a return (I love Buddha Doodles!) Let […]

Friday the 13th: superstition, luck, and perception as reality

It is Friday the 13th. Does that send a little shiver through you? Will you do anything different today? Do you consider yourself to be superstitious? Or maybe you think superstition is a bunch of baloney? Personally, I don’t consider myself superstitious. I don’t think things like Friday the 13th (or walking under a ladder, […]

In remembrance: September 11th and other anniversaries in Orlando

It is the morning of September 11th. Since 2001 this day has felt somber and important to me. I remember the fear and confusion I felt that day in 2001. I remember where I was when I heard that something was wrong and where I was when the first tower fell. I contemplate how life […]

How to be goofy: 101 ways

Yesterday I talked about the importance of goofiness, silliness, and joy in the post “Sometimes, when you’re a kid, you just have to be kind of goofy!” Remember, the point was that goofiness is NOT just for kids! Today, I wanted to take that a little further. Why? Do you know how to be goofy? […]

“Sometimes, when you’re a kid, you just have to be kind of goofy!”

While I was running on the treadmill the other day, I watched part of the Little League World Series. The players were all 11, 12, and 13-year old boys – kids who, for the most part, looked very serious. They acted like grown-ups. And in fact, what they were doing was serious business – they […]

When you don’t know what to do, communicate

I didn’t expect to write this blog today. I planned to write about running. Sometimes life doesn’t fit in with our plans. Today life re-taught me a lesson. And sometimes, when we don’t expect it, life does that. Since it is so fresh for me, I’m going to share my lesson. Maybe you will be […]

New school year, new beginnings in Orlando

It’s the first week of school (well, for me – maybe the second week for some of you)! You know what I love about the first week of school? Well, I mean other than new school supplies (I love new school supplies!)… New beginnings! I love new beginnings! With a new school year, you have a […]

What should I be doing? What’s the right question? (Just be here.)

I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking forward. What’s next? What should I be doing? Is this getting me where I want to go? I was talking to friends about trying to be less stressed about things like this, about not being so future-focused. One said “Well, what would happen if you just […]
