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, [...]

Take Hold of This Day

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 [...]

Peace is an Inside Job

We can’t ask for or expect peace in the world when we can’t claim it for ourselves. Today, I pause and create space for the calm that leads to peace. Peace, like happiness, is an inside job. It's not about them. It's about us. You and me and what is going on inside our heads, [...]

Each morning here on the island of Aegina in Greece, I open the white metal shutters of our bedroom and press them back against the bisque coloured stucco. They are secured with black iron hinges shaped like ‘S’s that swing up and keep them from blowing and banging in the breezes off the sea below. [...]

It’s WONDER. There is a fast ferry between Aegina Island where I live and the port of Pireaus in Greece, but I prefer the slow boat any day. It is a super, guilt-free, time to have an ipnaki (nap) or if we take our hotspot, to catch up on emails and such. On the ferry [...]

Happiness Is: A good night’s sleep. Tips.

By | June 17th, 2015|Exhilarated Life, Happiness, Quality of life, Wellbeing, Wellness|

Sleep deprivation is so common that many take it for granted. But sleep is the period of restoration of the body, integration of the past day’s events in the mind in dreaming (even if you don’t recall them) and opening of the spirit to access the vast reservoir of consciousness that guides us to our [...]

A successful marriage (life partnership) requires falling in love many times, always with the same person. ~ Mignon McLaughlin Love relationships - whatever stripe - are a challenge to keep in passion.
