Loving Myself As I Am

By | February 26th, 2017|Exhilarated Life, Forgiveness, gratitude, Self-love|

I nourish my body with wholesome foods, my mind with gratitude and forgiveness, and my spirit with loving relationships. All this I do by loving myself as I am. Too often we can't find the courage or discipline to make the simple consistent choices that will change our lives. We are stuck in regret, 20 [...]

Depressed or Just Hungry?

By | February 20th, 2017|Body Wisdom, Exhilarated Life, Health|

When I am tired or my blood sugar is low because I am hungry for nourishing foods, problems can loom larger. I simply choose to care for myself with the rest and nourishment I require for vitality.   We wilt just like plants when we are desperate for nourishment. The thing is low blood sugar, [...]

The Truth of Who You Are

By | February 19th, 2017|Exhilarated Life|

Media and other negative voices cause stress, which weakens me. I choose strength by listening to my inner voice offering ways to nourish my body and calm my mind.   Sensation sells news and fear sells products. Ratings rule and you are only as good as the number of likes your post gets.The first sentence is true because we have been trained that way to respond to stimulus. The second I'm certain you don't really believe, but we are beginning to [...]

Be Mindful. Be Careful. Be Creative. Be Loving.

By | February 16th, 2017|Exhilarated Life, Wellbeing|

When I  realise that every modern convenience from aspirins to airplanes began with a thought, I am in awe of my own power to create the world I experience.   When I really take in the truth of this, I am made small and gigantic at the same time. It's a paradox. Nothing in this [...]

On Being Grateful

By | February 14th, 2017|Exhilarated Life, Quality of life, Wellbeing|

When I am grateful for small things, like a beautiful day or the song of a bird, I become a magnet for more and greater experiences for which to be grateful. When we just pause a moment and observe the beauty that surrounds us, our life changes dramatically. We are usually so bent on getting [...]

Lift Your Thoughts Up

By | February 13th, 2017|Exhilarated Life, Happiness, Present Moment, Quality of life, Wellbeing|

I cannot think two thoughts at the same time. I choose the thoughts that take me higher; thoughts based on love and what is going right in the world - mine and the one around me. In any given moment, no matter how dire the circumstances, the political nonsense, the economic struggle, the personal challenges, [...]

They’re Breasts not BOOBs!

By | February 12th, 2017|Acceptance, Body Wisdom, Exhilarated Life, Health, Holism, Uncategorized, Wellbeing|

To my friends who are female and the men in their lives – lovers, husbands, sons, brothers, fathers: Many of you have asked me to put a heart on my wall ‘without comment’ and to be sure to check my ‘boobies’ as it is breast cancer awareness month or some such call to action. I [...]

Take Hold of This Day

By | February 12th, 2017|Consciousness, Exhilarated Life, Happiness, Present Moment, Self-fulfillment, Wellbeing|

Enjoy these days – they are your own; they belong to no one else but you. Don’t endure them, curse them or wish they were over. Craft them, carve them and paint them with desire. Many of us have goals, or at least wishes - thoughts how we'd like things to turn out and we [...]
