I Miss You

  Well, here we are heading into Winter and into the holidays and we are still living in a world of uncertainty. This week, I am simply reflecting on my own feelings for our mantra. I miss you. I miss seeing everyone. I really miss hugging because I am really good hugger. I miss sharing stories Read More

We ALL Matter

  Wow! What a couple of weeks it has been?!?!? My emotions have been all over the place. It all seems so surreal. Despite being very mentally distracted, I was somehow still able to get some pages read in one of my new favorite books, My Life on the Road, by Gloria Steinem. I could not Read More

Negative Thoughts are Useless

  My mantras are inspired by so many different things, but often they are inspired by someone’s words on a podcast or in a book. When I hear or see these words, I write them down and keep a list going so that when I goto write to you I reflect back on what has Read More

Stay Calm

  Hey there everyone! If you are here in the US, or even just watching (which everyone is) the craziness occurring here, you know that this week is going to be extremely challenging no matter which side of the fence you stand on. And, please know that I am extremely saddened that the fence has become Read More

No One Can Hurt My Spirit

  Hey everyone! Mantras are back!! I cannot even remember how long I have been posting mantras, but I know it has been quite a few years. So, every once in awhile, it is nice to get really old school and simply write about what I have been up to. I hope you found the last Read More

So…how did I choose Vieques?

  Hey everyone!! I promise that this week is much more upbeat! I am sharing a bit about our travels and why we chose Vieques. We may not all be able to travel right now, but at least we can dream and maybe start planning for future travels. So, after canceling and canceling more travel, Read More

Sometimes you just need to getaway…

Hola everyone!! The next few weeks I decided to share something a bit different. I hope you do not mind. Mantras will be back in full force after because I am always being inspired by the world that surrounds me and I do believe we need mantras to keep us positive and focused. But, I Read More

I am resilient.

  I am back after some much needed time away from the computer! I hope you all have been well. This week’s mantra is once again inspired by a quote in Dr. Michele Harper’s memoir, Beauty in the Breaking. I could not stop reading these two sentences over and over again. They reminded me that I am and that Read More

I will heal. You will heal. We will heal.

  This week’s mantra is inspired by a quote in Dr. Michele Harper’s memoir, Beauty in the Breaking. Throughout the book she sprinkles in her connection with yoga and in her epilogue she gives such a beautiful description of yoga, and the similarity to medicine, that I wanted to share it in hopes that it Read More
