Progress …

Several days ago, I posted that I was working on getting my studio straightened up so that I can use it for coaching office space. I am pleased to say that it is coming along nicely! In fact, I can finally see the surface of my desk! It had gotten cluttered enough that I didn’t…

More Than a Little Bummed

Yesterday was a delightful day. John and I got up early enough to go have breakfast at one of our local hangouts. I always enjoy eating out, but I particularly enjoy breakfast out. It feels like such a luxury. When I was a child growing up, we occasionally went out to dinner, but the only…

So Many Books … So Little Time

Like many readers I know, I’ve usually got several books going at a time. I don’t read a lot of fiction these days, so I don’t have trouble keeping the plot points and characters in the right place (although I have had that happen!). Currently on my nightstand: Man’s Search For Meaning, by Viktor E….

On Spiritual Experiences

At my coach’s suggestion, I just started reading  Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul: How to Create a New You by Deepak Chopra. I’m actually not a big Chopra fan (not that there’s anything wrong with him), so I was surprised that on page three, still in the introduction, I had to stop and capture…

Thoughts on Money

I’ve come to realize that I have a problem with money. I’m not talking about making a budget or saving money (although neither of those are my strong suits), but rather my relationship with money. It seems that I have “money stories” that don’t serve me. I grew up in a home where money seemed…

The Yum Festival

Last week-end, I had a delightful time at The Yum Festival in Ontario, California. Not only was it a day of good food, it was a great people-watching day. There were over 20 food trucks to choose from. I had bacon-lobster-macaroni-and-cheese from Bacon Mania, poutine from The Gravy Train, and corn-off-the-cob, from Corn Heaven. All…

Last Minute Blogging …

I’ve been busy the past few hours, trying to put together a Welcome Packet for new coaching clients. I decided it was time to take a break when my leg fell asleep. I took a peek at the clock and realized I hadn’t blogged yet today! Uh-oh! So this will be one of those rambly…

Cleaning Up The Mess – And Feeling The Energy Flow!

We moved into our house in March; since then, we’ve emptied many boxes and taken many more to storage. The main areas of the house look okay, although we don’t have any art on the walls yet. My studio, on the other hand, is a different story. After I made a small place to work,…

Day Three

This will be just a short post, just to have a post for today! Three days into Blogtoberfest, and I don’t want to back out on my commitment. Today has been an odd day. I woke up around 4:00 AM — about five hours earlier than I normally would. The lack of sleep made me…

Creativity Streaks

Yesterday I promised that today’s blog post would actually BE about something. I really shouldn’t have done that, because now the pressure’s on! For the first few days, I confess, I will be blogging just to be blogging! Since it’s been so long since I’ve blogged with any regularity, I need to build up momentum…
