Shiny Unicorn Attack (Cos It Had To Happen…)

“Never laugh at live dragons.” ~ J R R Tolkien So, I’m standing in a health food store yesterday, waiting while someone finds a product I’d ordered. I’m miserable. My eyes are streaming and one is gummed closed. My face is blotchy and puffy. I have a UTI and a chest infection and I am […]

Start Again In June!

“Today is the perfect day for a fresh start. Stop delaying, stop making excuses, stop putting it off. Now. Today is the perfect moment. You can change things, you can try. Don’t give up.”  ~ Akiroq Brost I had so many messages yesterday from readers and students and clients all asking me if they could start […]

Sorry You Missed Me Yesterday…

  “Persistence and resilience only come from having been given the chance to work through difficult problems.” ~ Gever Tulley I was intending to blog yesterday, and then I couldn’t. Early on Monday morning I was strapped into a heart monitor and holder for twenty-four hours, and while I was wired I had to stay […]

The restorative power of deep rest

Let The Dying Live!

“You’ve got this life and while you’ve got it, you’d better kiss like you only have one moment, try to hold someone’s hand like you will never get another chance to, look into people’s eyes like they’re the last you’ll ever see, watch someone sleeping like there’s no time left, jump if you feel like […]

The Very Valid ‘Not Coping’ Style of Coping

“It’s funny: I always imagined when I was a kid that adults had some kind of inner toolbox full of shiny tools: the saw of discernment, the hammer of wisdom, the sandpaper of patience. But then when I grew up I found that life handed you these rusty bent old tools – friendships, prayer, conscience, […]

Today’s Sunday Planning Session And Some True Confessions

“Live in the moment but just be mindful that you are working towards something.” ~ Eric Zaccone   I know, I know. It’s Sunday. And on Sundays I don’t blog, and I don’t go on the internet and I don’t do any work. Except that on this particular Sunday I am! I’m taking some time […]
