Stop Holding It In!

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditTuck it in. Suck it in. Hold it in. How many times have you heard, read or said this? Well, I say do the opposite: Let it out! I recently interviewed movement specialist Mary Derbyshire for my radio show Fearless Fabulous YOU! The focus was staying agile at any age.  Here is the link. Mary discussed how to sit, stand and move your body without overtaxing it. One thing I learned is that we tend to hunch and constrict our bodies rather than stay loose and limber. I  realized during the discussion that too many of us are too tightly […]

Fearless Fabulous You! Eat the Cake!

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditThis week a friend send me this quote below. I immediately dropped plans to work on my taxes and other practical things this weekend and took the day off to go cross country skiing. The sun was out; the weather was warm and the snow conditions were just right. Taxes could wait; the perfect day could not. That’s the meaning of Eat the Cake. Too many times we deny ourselves the joy of stepping out of our routines to take time to do something truly pleasurable, even decadent. Or we are so focused on creating constraints in our lives […]

The Voice of the Persisterhood Prevails

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestReddit This week the hashtag #shepersisted has been circulating with fervor after Senator Majority Leader Mitchell McConnell invoked Rule XIX to basically tell Senator Elizabeth Warren to shut up and sit down after she gave a lengthy speech and started reading a letter written by Coretta Scott King criticizing Attorney General candidate, Senator Jeff Sessions, whose appointment Warren opposed. He was later approved. The rule states that ““No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.” Senator McConnell […]

Walk the Walk; Don’t Just Talk the Talk

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditOn January 21 women around the nation and the world will gather in Washington, DC for the Women’s March on Washington. It’s not the first time women have marched. The women’s suffrage movement  in the U.S. started to gain momentum during the second part of the 19th century leading up to the constitutional amendment approving women’s right to vote in 1919.  On August 26, 1970, on the 50th anniversary of women’s suffrage, National Organization for Women (NOW)  organized a “Women’s Strike for Equality.” Approximately 50,000 women marched in New York and another 100,000 women participated in demonstrations and rallies […]

Make 2017 The Year of Kindness

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestReddit The Dalai Lama once said, “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible”   These days kindness seems to be replaced by chaos. Mall brawls, road rage, bullying, racism, rudeness, disrespect and disregard for authority or for anyone “not like us” monopolize stories in the media. It is too much! The new year gives us all the opportunity to clear the slate and try to make things better. Making new year’s resolutions is a ritual for me. It sets the tone and my goals for my year, and it can do the same for you. I think we […]

When Breaking Tradition May Be a Good Thing

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditI have the greatest respect for traditions, especially around the holidays. Maintaining longstanding traditions that are meaningful and joyful are always good for the spirit. They are like the glue that seals the passages of time and bonds you to others and to a sense of place. Many people have special traditions over the holidays, whether it’s familiar dishes or gathering places, decorations or songs, or people to spend time with either at home or away. But sometimes you need to take a break. This can be a delicate matter when it involves family and longtime friends who may not […]

When Breaking Up Is Hard To Do- Tips To Make It Easier

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditThere comes a point in everyone’s life when you’ll face a breakup. I’m not talking about calling it off with a significant other or divorcing a spouse or anything involving a romantic relationship. I’m talking about breaking off with people who provide you goods and services, perhaps for many years. And then one day you decide to make a switch. Maybe you were unhappy with someone’s services. Maybe you felt you needed a fresh look or new approach. Maybe a better offer or price presented itself and you wanted to give it a try.  Maybe you moved neighborhoods or […]
