Find Your Grit

Sometimes You Have to Be The Warrior

“Whatever you are physically…male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy–all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior.

Taking a Dose of my Own Medicine

“Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.” ~ Lord Byron It’s ironic that the day after posting about my progress yesterday I found myself back in herxing land. Herxing is a side effect of the lyme bacteria inside me dying off and releasing their toxins as a parting gift. I haven’t felt this dreadful […]

Why do you keep running from the thing you want?

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”   ~ Henry David Thoreau     It’s a simple enough question. And today I’m asking you. Why? Why do you keep running in the […]

Do what you have to do

Sometimes what we need to do doesn’t feel good. Or it feels unfamiliar, all wrong, and way out of our comfort zone. It can often involve not just effort, but sacrifice.  While everyone else is taking things easy, while everyone else is having fun, you have work to be done. To learn, to grow, to […]

“Life wasn’t meant to be easy, my child, but take courage: it can be delightful!” ~ George Bernard Shaw I received an email from a student recently, who has just started working as a healer in a new clinic. It’s been her dream for many years, and she’s good at what she does. Here’s an except […]

Fear of Crossing Roads

“No one has traveled the road of success without ever crossing the street of failures.” ~ Unknown I have an embarrassing confession. I’m not good at crossing roads by myself.

Sad Unicorns OR Is your New-Age Thinking Positively Unhelpful?

“Great heroes need great sorrows and burdens, or half their greatness goes unnoticed. It is all part of the fairy tale.”  ~ Peter S.

Feelings are disturbing. […]

Closing the Door on Abusive Relationships

“You show others how to treat you.” ~ Dr Phil This week I have seen two of the people I love most in the world finally end abusive relationships.  One walked away from a long-term love relationship.  One walked away from their ‘dream job’. The woman who closed the door on an abusive relationship had […]

“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” Christopher Reeve Think about it. You read a book.
