Turn expectation upside down and see your life from a new perspective. When hope hangs in the balance and optimism feels as fragile as shifting sand, reclaim the power of perspective. Defy gravity to shift the weight of limiting thoughts. Stretch your mind and body and let blood flow into your most creative, open beliefs.
If you don’t like the paths laid out for you, make your own. Visualize a future that excites you rather than going through the motions of what’s expected of you. Picture it in your mind. Feel it in your body. Be it with all your might. Now let it loose. Let it be a path ... Continue Reading »

He told me while I was in the kitchen. Stirring something, soup maybe, onions or boiling potatoes, doesn’t matter really, whatever it was, my stirring soon became furious. “They told me I wasn’t really a boy today.” His 12yr old voice tried to remain detached. “Really” I replied, trying to match his detachment, while searching ...

Over the years Tears. She’s pregnant. She cried. “You have a boy”, again happy, ecstatic tears. Another two makes three. Three times more the tears. Tears from firsts, tears from lasts. Beginning school, of pushing away, tight embraces, overnight stays, and saying goodbyes. First hurts. Last glances Thankful tears for second chances. Tears from fears ... Continue Reading »
It’s really best to get them out of your head. Just forget them, tear them up and throw them away. Yes I know they’re pretty, peaceful, perfect and quite delightful.
