Trust yourself, follow your intuition and take bold steps. The universe will meet you halfway and open doors to exciting new opportunities, relationships and experiences. The sky’s the limit when you live with sky high trust. The door is open. Now let go of the handle and walk through.

One of my all time favorite TV shows was Picket Fences. My favorite character, partly because he had one of my favorite real life names, “Fyvush Finkel”, was an outrageous attorney named Douglas Wambaugh. He was so offensive that he was barred from his own synagogue. His tongue in cheek legal mantra, printed on his ... Continue Reading »
Carol Luebering, an author who wrote a lot about death and dying, said, Forgiveness is not something you do for someone else. It is something you do for yourself.

You love to see them grow. Your heart bursts with every achievement and yet you worry about every bend ... Continue Reading »
I like to take any opportunity I can to snoop. I like to check you out, give you the once-over, peer inside your house and take in all I can see from where I stand. I assess, discern, listen to my gut and then create an opinion about you all within a few seconds. I ... Continue Reading »
There is nothing I can do. But watch. My wanting it to change, my arguing with it, pleading for one more day, pointless. The leaves fall, the wind changes, the temperatures drop, the geese fly. My mind calling it the enemy. I prefer, cloudless skies, sprinklers, and bare feet. Nights on the deck in the ... Continue Reading »
Ahhhh, holding a child’s hand…ever done it? Felt their soft little palm in yours? Have you been fully aware of the trust, love and tenderness between you? Try it. I have been known to grab, pull, drag, a child’s hand, across a busy road, through a mall, up a sledding hill, No, not this kind ... Continue Reading »
This piece is reposted with permission from Nan’s blog. Most of us weren’t surprised when Pew Research reported, “Only 22% percent of the public trust the government in Washington almost always or most of the time.” We were unfazed when Gallup found, “Americans’ confidence in banks is at a historic low.” And we didn’t blink ...

Maybe you feel jaded because your trust has been betrayed and you have built high walls of protection around your heart. Thats understandable. Life can be harsh, and people can be cruel. Now you have a choice. You can either let the betrayal define you and become closed and bitter, or you can rise above the hurt ... Continue Reading »
It all felt particularly hard that day. I lay flattened by the weight of it all, buried with barely a pulse – until a whisper brushed by my ear, barely audible as doubt and disbelief smothered each word… “The sun’ll come out Tomorrow Bet your bottom dollar That tomorrow There’ll be sun! “ Yet, it ...
