Everyday Mindfulness

I have been thinking bout how we define and live in a full awareness of our present moments. So often I find myself ruminating about the past or worrying about the future. This makes allowing space to be able to be completely in the present, very challenging! Yes, when I find that moment where I am only in the present, it is quite illuminating. My worries about the future fade away and the weight of being stuck in the past loosens its grip on me. [...]

Top 5 Barriers to Change & How to Overcome Them

Top 5 Barriers to Change & How to Overcome Them All transitions are about movement from one state of being or thinking, to something new and unknown. Clinging to our comfort zone can be a way of resisting that movement. We might not even be aware of how we dig in our heals to avoid the fear of something unfamiliar. Do you know what your comfort zone is? Mine has always been the safety of predictability. Anything that challenges what I know to be steady and sure sends me [...]

Who Am I Now?

I've had many days, just like Alice in Wonderland, starting out feeling grounded and secure in knowing myself, where I was going and who I was, only to be derailed, sometimes even before I stepped foot out my front door! Questioning our identity and sense of direction is especially challenged when we are in the midst of major life change. If it is divorce that we are anticipating or going through, suddenly that question of "Who Am I?" is fighting our image of self as [...]

Journey Of A Move

"How big a deal could this be? It wasn’t like I was moving out of the state or country." This was some of my self talk as I was in the process of making a decision to move my counseling office. The move was a small one… relocating in the same building, literally right around the corner. But… the decision making process felt earth shattering. If I was struggling with anxiety, stress and overwhelm in deciding to move my office to a larger, brighter space [...]

Intentions for 2018

  Dear Readers, I sit here wondering how it could be that two months have passed between newsletters. Not being a procrastinator by nature, I know this lapse has not been from lack of thinking about or planning to send monthly messages about life changes and how we navigate them and learn from them. So… in this spirit, I share with you that I have learned much about the nature of understanding and forgiveness in not keeping up with writing monthly. What I have been able to see, [...]

Empty Nest Lessons In Letting Go

A recent family visit has set me to thinking about how we grow in our relationships with our adult children. We call this the empty nest phase...the kids grown and on their own. I remembered that I had written an article about empty nest two years ago. I was surprised by the passage of time and wondered what I would be able to expand upon. It occurred to me that for starters, I continue to add my own experience, as Mom and now as Grandmom. [...]

Summer Rains of Change

  Summertime rains are a very curious and changeable event. The sky can be threatening and dark or sunny and bright when the rain starts to fall. One can try a hand at predicting where and when the showers may appear by looking up and gauging what the sky is portending. Our life storms and changes can be much like these summer rains, sun showers, thunder storms or sprinkles. Change comes in many forms. It can be turbulent, mild, predictable or sudden. Transitions can be big, small [...]

The Certainty of Uncertainty

Every stage of our life has places of uncertainty, times we get caught in the worry, anxiety and stress of trying to anticipate when our sky will fall. We go to great lengths to prepare for these surprises of illness, accident, aging and loss. Whether we are anticipating something big or small, building an emotional fortress to keep it out can become an all-consuming pursuit. What is really lost in these fruitless efforts to secure a guarantee of safety is the ability to enjoy the [...]
