Happy Gratitude Day!

It seems like ages since I have posted here and I miss it.  As I was driving home from my job job last night (Saint Anthony’s, not Living Room Yoga) I was overcome by a sense of gratitude and knew it was time to write a good juicy blog post. Seven years ago began a tumultuous period of my life …

Cheers to Barry Cooper

I want to take this opportunity to appreciate Barry Cooper. Babe, you are a complicated, caring, passionate man. You are a fabulous cook, Ayurvedic expert, massage therapist and yoga teacher.  You think, speak, and live what you teach. You are always caring about my needs – massaging away my aches and pains and making sure the house is clean, my …

Positive Conscious Thinking

So I have been diligently practicing positive conscious thinking again this week.  This has included filling my mind with more positive input:  Watching more positive television (Check out “Touch” on Netflix), reading or listening to Ernest Holmes whenever I get the chance.  I have also been painstakingly adjusting my output from negativity and fear to positivity, courage, and love:  Making …

…. and the the opposite showed up. RIP Frank.

I listened to more of Ernest Holmes – Man was that guy deep!  I can only listen for short stints.  Unfortunately the guy reading the audio reads too fast for me to process the deepness.  He also sounds disturbingly like Donald Trump so some of my processing time goes to overcoming that…. Yesterday I worked at the VA.  It has …

Writing a Positive Story …

Tonight I am writing a positive story about my life.  I urge you to do the same.  Here is mine: “I am amazed at how life always turns out well for me.  Just 4 years ago I was going through the roughest time of my life and it was difficult to see how things would ever feel good again.  Little …

A Dose of Gratitude Please

I am seriously questioning the wisdom of drinking that cup of coffee at 4:00pm yesterday since I have been awake since 3ish.  Sigh.  Sounds like a great day for some gratitude! Today I am grateful for using my time productively to get all my tax stuff together. being super organized for Localtopia. a paycheck that makes me go ahhhhhh. not …

The Energy Test

I slept 10 hours last night.  On a Monday night!  No hospital work yesterday or today.  Private appointments are slow too.  And I tweaked my back.  It is sore.  I could panic and let my mind go into a negative spiral or I can be happy.   As I was lying in bed, I decided to do an energy experiment …

Out of Humility….

It has been a humbling week in many respects,  some so tender that I will not share the details.  In one of my last posts I shared how despite feeling relieved that my full-time job ended so I could focus on Living Room Yoga, my health, and writing, I found myself obsessively applying for OT jobs.  Two of those applications …

My What is Wrong vs What is Right List

Life transitions never stop do they?  The good thing is that once you get to a certain age one (hopefully) realizes that things usually work out alright.  Around February of this year, I remember having a juice with Dawn Lynch after yoga and expressing how hemmed in – or trapped really – I felt about my work schedule.  I was …

ENOUGH! Committing to a Return to Sane Living

Lately it seems too often I have been experiencing the racing heart, the butterflies in my stomach, the agitated mind, the reactivity, and the emotionality that comes with having too many commitments.  Overworking is a Pitta tendency and a habit to which I default as a response to fear.  When it was announced that the unit where I worked would …
