Self Love

Right now you are probably sitting at your computer or staring into your phone and you are reading this blog with your eyes or listening to it with an adaptive reader. Your body may be sitting in a chair or wheelchair, at a desk, in your car at a red light or on public transit. Your body may be relaxed or rigid with stress, sitting upright, slouched, lying down, your legs may be crossed, stretched out, your skin may be brown, black, tan, pale, dark, well preserved or bearer of scars.

Growth Mindset

It is the year 2022 and we are still tiptoeing around discussing and talking openly and honestly about mental health, addiction, therapy, counseling, rehab and treatment. I remember as a child that when my great grandparents were about to say something either embarrassing or offensive, their voice would drop into a whisper, as if that made it better or more palatable.

Inside Out

It has been one of those very hard to witness news cycles where we all watch in real time while Russia continues to invade Ukraine causing families to be separated, a rising death toll and an overwhelming refugee situation. Sometimes it feels like we are watching a movie, but it is so important not to get numb or complacent about what is happening in the world. While we may live in a country that is still fighting over wearing masks and whether to get vaccinated, there are those an ocean away wondering if today will be their last on this earth due to war.

I Feel Anxious

Life is a series of steps, much like a dance, some in the right direction, others in the wrong direction, but around and around we go. At times it can feel like we are doing this whole life dance pretty well and other times, it can feel like maybe we should just get off the dance floor so to speak. The news is harsh, the weather is harsh, for some of us, our personal and professional lives seem harsh and to be honest, sometimes being positive and cheery is too much to ask of ourselves, let alone others.

Real Life

Do you ever feel like you are in a life slump and are just waiting for what must surely be your real life to start? Life can often feel monotonous, another morning begins with your phone alarm beeping, coffee, exercise, car pool, breakfast, shower, work, carpool again, dinner, homework help, reading, games on phone and maybe some TV, sleep and then we do it all over again. It almost seems as if you are stuck in a time loop continuum when you can anticipate when the annoying, high strung dog next door is going to freak out and bark its head off!
