Life is Delicious!

Enjoy getting older! It can be fun!

Do families and holidays go together?

As I was growing up, thousands of holiday pictures like those of Currier and Ives were everywhere.  They portrayed holidays at Grandma and Grandpa’s perfect farmhouse, surrounded by fields of mounds of hay with frolicking animals in the yard.  Grandma was smiling at the stove ~ her white apron perfectly tied at the waist and her gray hair in a bun! Grandpa was sitting in a chair by the fire […]

Pigeon holes are for the birds!

Way back in history, pigeons were raised for the meat they provided. They nested in holes in walls.  Later in history, the term “pigeon hole” was used to refer to a desk or wall area with small cubby holes where you could file and categorize mail or papers or other information. Eventually our brains picked up the idea and started to pigeonhole people with preconceived ideas, many being a priori […]

GOOD THOUGHTS FEEL GOOD!

  Sound simple?  If so, then it would mean that people can think thoughts that make them feel good! I hope you are one of those people!  For any other people who are having thoughts that don’t feel so good, change is as easy as 1-2-3. ONE. It is important to know that every single thought we think has its full effect on our minds, bodies and spirits!    Every thought!  […]

Fall seven times, get up eight!

This Japanese proverb is the story of my life! Today I saw my medical doctor who I’ve seen for quite a few years, as needed, and who I very much enjoy. I gave her a copy of my new book, “Life is Delicious!” and even though she is a busy doctor, she took the time right then and there to quietly look at each page, and she remarked:  “This is […]

Be inspired by silence!

In silence….. The faithful sun rises and sets. Seeds grow and germinate and flourish beneath the earth. A pet stretches out lazily ~ and falls fast asleep. Trees slowly reveal their many changes. We grow older. Reflections come from mirrors. A knowing glance happens between two people. Shadows grow long and then magically disappear. Flowers move effortlessly from buds to blooms. Water flows into ponds and slowly evaporates into the […]

We all affect each other!

August is my birthday month!  My age?  Let me refer to you the genius of Abraham Lincoln:  “It’s not the years in your life that count.  It’s the life in your years!” Back in my twenties, I had seen a picture and read a story of a woman in her nineties that so inspired me that I made up my mind that when I am older, I wanted to be […]

How to give our minds a rest!

Do we “take in” the world around us, or does the world around us “take us in?” Countless things are always happening all the time, but many, if not most, of them do not have to trouble our minds or our hearts! Our minds can be busy, busy, busy….because…. The mind is such a faithful and true servant to its master! The mind works at a relentless, steady pace! The […]

How to communicate more honestly!

   Honesty and integrity within yourself are the most important things you can bring to any conversation. That means that what you think in your mind and feel in your heart and say with your words are all congruent within yourself.  When you are not congruent, you are giving others mixed messages and signals.  This brings harm to yourself and confusion to the other person.  The harm comes from letting […]

Long Journey. Short talk.

“Did you forget some of your things?” “No, I left them behind on purpose.” “You travel so light. How did you decide what to bring and what to leave behind?” “It was quite simple. Quite easy.” “Tell me more!” “I left behind me all the things that were less than the person that I am. Those things were part of my life once, but they are not my life now. […]

Shake it up!

Do something different today!  Life is not “copy and paste!”  Eat dinner for breakfast!  Have dessert first!  Do your nighttime routine in the morning and your morning routine at night!  Wear jeans instead of dressing up or dress up instead of wearing jeans!  Eat at a new place! Shake it up! Here is something that will interest you:  our thoughts and actions are embarrassingly the same day after day after […]
