Such a personal place. And when it comes to our hairstyle preferences, especially down there, SOCIAL TABOO gets stamped all over it. But I’m going to bust that wide open for a few minutes. Because when our hair down there gets between us and love and self-acceptance, we need to talk about it.
So a few weeks ago, a friend and I were sitting on my couch, giggling and chatting as good girlfriends tend to do. Somehow we ended up on the subject of the twisted public image of women’s bodies. And as things go, we brushed up against the subject of sexual expectations.
She then told me a story about her, her hair, a play and an ex-boyfriend.
Breathing can help prolong your life. Well, especially when you combine it with meditation.
In an age where we are constantly multi-tasking, plugged in, inundated with images, facts and emails and enduring constant over-stimulation, it’s no wonder we’re exhausted and a little frayed at the edges each day.
And when you have added stress, it can affect your body in many ways both physically and mentally. So whether you are going through a difficult time in your life or are struggling with an ongoing mental health issue, adopting mindfulness could be just what the doctor ordered.
Two weeks ago, my husband and I moved our kitchen trash can. It didn’t seem like a big issue at the time.
For five years, I had it stored away behind the pantry door. While it’s in the kitchen, technically, it serves as the main garbage receptacle for our home. I had picked the pantry because I find trash to be unsightly. And it can smell. Plus, I had cats. Cats who get too curious for their own good, sometimes. Three of ’em.
But my husband had a few good points: Moving the trash to beside the sink would reduce the amount of food droppings and other spillage across the kitchen to the pantry, and, ewww, fewer germs and residue on the pantry door handle.
I had to admit that his logic was sound. It seemed like a better, more sanitary choice.
That was the case until the first 300 times I went to throw something away.
Do you feel frustrated about how difficult it is to find other people that you have something in common with? That “get” you, or you can truly connect with? Your “tribe”, so to speak?
It’s actually not as hard as you might think. And as I rediscovered this past week, it’s as easy as following your heart. Here’s what happened to me recently: Continue reading

There’s no better way to wake up on a dark, cloudy morning than a cup of tea! And I loved today’s little message on my teabag tag:
After 33 years of living life, I’ve learned that being and staying healthy in mind and body is a never-ending balancing act.
This is a moment that I get off my soapbox as a wellness mentor and talk to you, woman-to-woman and tell you something I’ve learned recently. I have a very personal example. Continue reading
I am in the throes of creating a new vision board for myself.
While the first one I ever built two years ago still holds merit, I have grown as a person. I have new and/or revised goals and directions, and I want my new vision board to reflect that. I am a very visual person, so I am eager to get started in finding images that illustrate my morphing worldview.
But all I had were vague concepts in my mind. And I wasn’t sure how I wanted to encapsulate those concepts in a few simple images. More importantly, I realized that I didn’t want just images, but images that would create strong emotions and feelings. Images that would invoke those passions in me and excite me into action each day, to work toward making them a reality.
