Emotion Is Energy In Motion

“We are taught by our respective cultures, and often our family of origin, not to fall apart. For both women and men. If we are fortunate we are allowed to do so as a child growing up. We are told that our very survival depends on holding it all together, protecting our hearts and not showing the fullness of who we are. But what if that is not true at all?:

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

“I was well aware of the work that now 75-year-old Patch Adams, M.D. with his red clown nose has done, and is still doing, who’s message for health care providers has been “lighten the mood and you will lighten the struggle”. And Norman Cousins (Cancer Laughter Cure). had done on laughter and the simple act of smiling to raise endorphin levels, decrease pain, and augment healing even from a cancer diagnosis he was given. Yet, it appeared that I needed a reminder…”

Your Life Breathing

“What I have learned, and keep learning – it often takes repetition! – is that the moments at any stage of life are to be taken one step at a time. Being mindful of the words and thoughts we repeat to ourselves, that often squeeze the joy of simply being into the contracted small containers of judgement – of ourselves and others – worry, anxiety and fear. It seems easy to do these days….”

Employed By The Universe

“SEEKING HUMAN WITH THE FOLLOWING QUALIFICATIONS FOR CONSCIOUS OPPORTUNITY TO COLLABORATE WITH THE UNIVERSE….”

Over 70 – Elderhood In Action!

“Over a year of filming across the globe to tell 18 stories of people over 70. Why? Because there are lives that can inspire our own. Watch “Stories of A Generation with Pope Francis.”

DAY 31: Joy In Life

“I am filled with gratitude as I write this last post in the “31- Days of Joy and Laughter Project” and concurrently complete a 6-day self directed personal retreat to end the year. As all of these posts came from trusting the unfolding in each day – not planned agenda – today’s post reflects that magical synchronicity that constantly fills my life to over flowing.”

DAY 30: “Kindness Is My Super Power”

“On this next to last day of the 31-Days of Joy and Laughter Project the article from Good News, along with the video below, came to my attention. It sparked something within me. That part who consciously chooses to participate in one act of kindness and share laughter/humor with at least one person every time I go out into my community. A practice I have taken to heart for many years now and benefited greatly from. “

DAY 27: Enough Is A “Precious” Feast

“Three years ago I visited my home town of San Diego, California in the beach area of Ocean Beach/Point Loma where I was born, raised and brought three sons into the world – with the purpose of spending time with family still living there. It was like living my life backwards with so many memories arising as I walked my old haunts and the hard packed sand at the waters edge.  On one of these walks I reflected on my entry experience at the airport a day before….”

DAY 25: Come Out and Play!

“”Play is a beautiful, creative and powerful part of who we are. In this fun and inspiring video, you will be joyously reminded of the deeper purpose and gift of play. Watch how people express their playful spirit, and learn how play connects us to our Self, the heart of children, and the larger interplay of life.” Vince Gowmon

DAY 24: A Bit of Light Magic

“Awe, wonder and a bit of dancing around, just like the young child close to us, as we walked into the Winter Lights show outdoors at the N. Carolina Arboretum. What pure magic awaited us as we walked through hundreds of displays in the gardens spontaneously singing with the music and certainly with smiles on our faces the entire time!”
