Letting Go

As a parent letting go can be quite a challenge. We have to let go in so many different phases and chapters of our children’s lives.  Right off the bat, we have to let go and let medical staff clean up and take care of our baby(ies) as soon as they come into the world…with […]

Back In The Saddle

I have been reflecting on what takes me out of writing as it has been a few months since I have posted here.  The main thing that comes up for me is emotional overwhelm with life situations.  I may have the time, but the emotional energy is not there and the content is more difficult […]

Shifting Energy

Shifting energy is something I talk with my patients about all the time and a skill I do not think I could live without. When we are dealing with something difficult or are just in a lower state with anxiety, depression, grief or anger, it is so important to find ways to shift our energy.  […]

Life is not Linear

We have had some unplanned, unwanted and undesirable events come up in the past 2 weeks. It has sent me reeling…it has made me look at things and re-evaluate my consistent perfectionistic desires.  There is so much we want in life…so much we plan for without even realizing it….and so much we fear getting in […]

Letting Go Of A Dream

Letting go of a dream….that sounds pretty dramatic doesn’t it? Sounds like something that could make us feel defeated… resigned…heartbroken.  This weekend Steve and the boyz let go of a dream. We sold the ’66 Mustang that Steve’s parents had bought for him  when he was  a teenager.  At some point it stopped running and […]

A New Perspective on Regret

Little Things Tuesday

Sometimes it is the littlest things that make us happy.  I thought it would be fun to celebrate these little moments, things or experiences and see if others can relate. I am a very visual person so my surroundings really impact me. I was looking for something small for a blank space in my bathroom […]

What’s Ripe in January?

As January has come to a close, I have been reflecting on the month. Living in the great northeast, about the only thing growing around us is snow :). Of course that is much to my delight as I love snow, skiing, snowshoeing, snuggling under heavy blankets and the pure peace, beauty and coziness that […]

New Year, New….

Garage door??? New hardware replaced but will need much more than that in the long run:( Well we are in a much better place than last year at this time….on January 1, 2018 we discovered we needed a new hot water heater, washer and dryer. Whoo hoo!  Here we are January 2019 and on Thursday […]
