Holidays Are Hard

Holidays are hard...I am writing this in a crunch. I am listening to Taylor Swift, a Diet Pepsi that is so flat it’s not worth it is nearby, as is my daughter’s Christmas list. I have been writing these blogs for almost two years. The first one I wrote as a regular contributor was right around this time and it was about the holidays and that pang. That pang you get as a parent who ...

Living On Life Avenue

Living on Life Avenue... The disappointment that we incur as a result of an unmet expectation is usually our fault, our problem, our unrealistic view.  Now that does not mean ‘don’t expect anything’… what it means is… Don’t let it ruin your day.  Don’t get disappointed about it.  At least not the kind of disappointment that keeps you in bed with a tear-soaked pillow or the kind that keeps you  returning to the fridge for ...

Season Of Gratitude

Season of gratitude.... With Thanksgiving right around the corner I am especially aware of how important it is to be grateful. Not merely as a concept, but more as an experience that can bring you to tears. It has taken me the better part of my adult life to fully experience gratitude in my body. One of the turning points for me was reading a book called Gratefulness, the Heart of Prayer by Brother David ...

How to Have a Happy & Healthy Holiday Season

Oh the holiday season that is upon us! This most wonderful (yet busy) time of year is filled with food, festivities, gathering, decorating, shopping, and traveling. If you are anything like me, the sights, smells, and music all make this time of year so nostalgic and magical. But along with all of the magic comes the inevitable stress, overeating, last minute shopping, planning/hosting parties, and full calendars for the entirety of the month of December ...

Are You Prepared?

Prepared today... Do you read the newspaper?  Have you ever read the newspaper?  Do you even know what the newspaper is?  Lol….  It’s like the rotary phone.  Some people today would look at it and not have any clue how it works or what it’s for.  I guess that would be the same as me watching operators from forever ago, who would connect the callers from one house to the next just by plugging-in wires, ...

The Double Handed Compliment

The Double Handed Compliment.....  It is Sunday morning. I have a coffee and a golden Doodle who is doing his best to convince me I should pet him. No music. But I have a suggestion- if you can, give Gary Clark Jr.’s cover of the Beatles Come Together a listen. In my humble opinion as a Beatles fan (I have a lyric of theirs tattooed on me) he does it justice. I am part of ...
