Who’s Running This Moment?

Two weeks ago browsing in Barnes and Noble I happened upon a book by one of my favorite teachers Pema Chodron, COMFORTABLE WITH UNCERTAINTY. I didn’t realize at the time that it was prophetic! I’m a very structured person. I like schedules, routine and “certainty”. However 2018 has been less certain than anytime I can… Continue reading Who’s Running This Moment?

Willing to vs Wanting to…

I was introduced to this concept earlier this week at a program on anxiety. The facilitator Dr. Mark Schneider Ph.D, spoke on the differences of “wanting” and “willing” to do something.

Why is any of the above relevant?… Continue reading Running through Winter…

Make Fireworks Every Day

My latest Shutterfly creation was a place mat with the above picture with the words “Make Fireworks Every Day”.  This is to remind myself to give my best in all aspects of my day.
