Lighten Up!

I don't know about you, but in the past (which means about a week ago :-) ), I was SO very intent on judging the hell out of myself! It was as though my Inner Critic was having a free for all and I didn't seem to be able to stop it!

The more I judged myself, the more I seemed to be entrenching myself in the field of negativity and certainly out of my Flow!

It was Exhausting!!!!!!

The more I couldn't find the Good Feeling Thought the more I judged myself for not being 'spiritual/evolved/enlightened' enough to find the Ease and Joy of my Life and how I KNEW it could be!

So how did I do it???? That is, get back into the Flow?

Well, I stopped making it such a Huge Flipping deal! I am Fully Human and Fully Divine and part of that  humanness is dealing with those fears, thoughts, feelings that if I allow, can catapult me out of the flow to where I'm stranded up on the banks with my face and hair caught up in the grass and leaves! You can picture it right? Hair all askew, mud smeared on my face! :-)

Part of me wanted to lie there along the riverbanks for awhile and sing the "somebody done me wrong song"...which I did :-), but eventually, I wanted to quiet those fears and get back in my little inter tube and resume my journey of floating down that peaceful, flowing river.

Sooooo, I started noticing that voice that would whisper that I was a fraud, that voice that said "good mamas don't lose their temper with their children, good partners treat their spouses lovingly...always." Just a few of the phrases that would come pouring in.

I began rebuffing those voices with a Lightness, saying, "yeah, so that wasn't one of my most stellar moments, and I am going to forgive myself", and "well, shit, I did it again!; I'm gonna apologize AGAIN!' and "I know that I could choose to focus on what didn't go well; I have been REALLY good at that in the past, but I'm going to choose Kindness and ALL that did go swimmingly"

Lighten up on your Sweet Self today and Focus on ALL that is Flowing smoothly for you!!



I am more excited about this summer than I have been in a long time. Not that my summers have been heinous up until now, far from it, but I've made a choice as to HOW I will spend this one.

I had to do some Soul searching and weed through the fear, anxiety and whatever other negative emotion came up to get to this Joy-Filled place of where I am now.

After last summer of trying to juggle my Coaching clients and two five year olds and a seven year old, I made the decision that when my children had vacation, I would not meet with my clients.  That was a BIG choice and a scary one! My Ego did not cotton to that idea one bit! The questions/comments that immediately began flying around in my noggin were: "You can't just abandon your clients!", Can you even afford to do that??", "What if they go some place else?", "What if they don't need you anymore?"

You get the picture. 

I am happy to say that I was able to shush those voices, not overnight, mind you, and from a powerful decision place, decide to do just that! I am going to BE in the moment and play Hard with my little munchkins and Trust the Universe that " It is Always working out for me!"

My little nuggets are only this young for such a brief window. They still think I'm the best thing since sliced bread. They still want to jump into my arms. They still want snuggles and smoochy kisses!

Cain't put no price tag on that...EVER!!!!

Make this summer how you WANT it! Heck, make this Moment how you want it!

Make your summer and your Life, Magical and Miraculous!





This is my First 'Official' BLOG (that name always makes me want to drag it out...Bbbblloggg! )


As most of you know who follow me on FaceBook, I am ALL about the Magic and Miracles in life! I believe that the miraculous happening is really the 'norm', but we are so entrenched in our way of thinking that anytime something "coincidentally happens", we either don't notice, say "wasn't that weird?!", or start doing a little Magic dance. These days, I can more often be seen doing the Magic Tango!


Trust me, I can MISS a lot of Magic as I fret about things that seem 'Oh so important' at the time like "When am I going to change the sheets before my mother arrives and can I fit it in before soccer practice?!"

That can be one of a bazillion thoughts whirring around in my head as my youngest is asking me to read Duck! Rabbit! to her.

What I realize is that sheet changing gets done, and it gets done with a 'grace and ease' when I show up fully in THAT moment and say,"Sure, honey."


The Miracle is many layered: I get some special time with Lucy, I am right there, in the moment and THAT's where the joy in life is, that is where the Miracle and the Magic ONLY occur!

When I opt in to what is REALLY meaningful, I find that little worm holes of time open up and sheet changing, toilet scrubbing, laundry hanging occur almost effortlessly....For Real! :-)


Try it today!

Instead of 'Future Tripping' as one of my friends says, keep bringing yourself back to the here and now!

Say, "THIS moment, this Holy moment is ALL that I have, what Miracle do I want to experience?"

You'll stop saying, "wasn't that weird?" and begin to start doing the Magic Dance with me!
