I have friends and family who are firefighters and police officers who…Continue

Kindness is a state or quality of being kind. By being kind to yourself you emit more supporting, helpful and kind energies to the universe and in revert get the same that support you and help you to get control over your life.

In my family, we are serious, music-loving fools. Now, granted, none of us can actually play an instrument (well, not yet anyway!), but we sure as heck appreciate people who can. Yep, we dig it so much that it's generally playing in our house in some form or fashion 24/7.…Continue

I remember how the song “Lighten” came to me as clearly as if it were yesterday. I was rocking my baby to sleep and probably drooling on myself because I was so tired and relaxed at the same time. I thought of all the other women in the world who work so hard,give tirelessly of themselves to their families and the world, have such love that they share. I was thinking of how incredibly wonderful they are….how precious and loved they are. and how they probably still struggle with occasional…Continue

When you hear the word "balm" it should trigger other words in your head like one-for-all, multi-tasking awesomeness, and untouchable. Have you found a balm that does that? I've found great alternatives to even my favorite petrolatum products (like Aquaphor- seems there's nothing it can't do), including Burt's Bees Res-Q Ointment which I discussed…Continue

I don’t have much respect for anxiety. My own anxiety is ridiculously annoying. I was never an anxious person until that cancer diagnosis came from out of the blue. Now I worry about my health all the time. I have read that anxiety serves a purpose: to keep you aware of potential danger, but when you…Continue

Raised to believe that a man needed to look after a woman and that, as her mother used to tell her, ‘single women have no status’, Philippa Sklaar felt that any man was better than no man. If a man looked after her, she owed him. So, for financial security and, admittedly, her relationship addiction, Philippa tolerated abuse, became whoever her husband wanted her to be and lost herself along the way. Her book,…Continue

These are words are screams and experiences that are all too common amongst most anxiety and panic disorder victims.
Actually, you can breathe if you’re able to shout those dreadful words. Breathing properly is the main issue.
We must learn how to breathe properly, especially when over-stressed!
When stress ravishes the mind it…Continue

It’s Kindergarten time and we and when I say “we” I say that loosely as I rather mean “I” as Mom! Mom has had to deal with; lice, cold, flu, fevers, pink eye, growing pains, nightmares, teething, etc.
My husband works during the day so, I get it, I…Continue

I Am. I say short books rule. I've never understood people who pick up a 700 page book with gusto. What are they thinking? That's hours of time with eyes glued on print. I get it, the story can be amazing and transfer you to an incredible place. I just don't think that I have the stamina to go there. Do me a favor and turn that book into 5 different books and I'll bet more people would gladly pick it up.
I've recently discovered…Continue

If you have a headache, you can take two pills and call it a day- you'll probably have to take two more in a few hours. If you have a headache and figure out why- you may not get the headache again.
That's called integrative healing. Drugs alone typically mask what's going on. Figuring out why something happens, gives you a chance to truly heal. Go down the list. Here's a sample:
(1) Is it nutritional? Did you eat today? Are you dehydrated? Are you…Continue

What does it take for us to trust our own instincts? Does having the confidence to pose a question mean that we have the guts to advocate for what we believe is right? Asking questions is probably the first step in trusting ourselves. It shows we value what we think.
But what does it take to trust ourselves? Experience. There's two ways to get that- the hard way- actually go through it or the easy way- learn from someone else. I think that's why stories can inspire us. To the…Continue

There is no manual that pops out with the baby that tells you exactly how to raise a child. So what do we do? We ask friends, family or buy books. The problem with that is we are getting advice from someone else's experiences based on their own environment, family dynamic, genetics, issues or talents. We need to find out who WE are first and then raising a child will be easy. How do we do that? The only way to find answers is to ask questions.
The glitch is that we need to be…Continue
