Positive Living

Manage your Energy, Not your Time

I am grateful for the positive support and encouragement from friends and family for this blog.   Good ideas for blog postings quite often come from casual conversations with this wonderful group of people.  As I’ve learned about the power of the law of attraction, I’ve come to believe there  are no real coincidences.  Rather, you […]

Love is Letting Go of Fear

If you aren’t living a life of peace and fulfillment, it’s typically subconscious thoughts that are holding you back.  Many books on how to achieve happiness, wealth, better relationships, etc focus on changing our thoughts in order to achieve feelings of happiness.  As I mentioned previously, the main theme is often similar, but they have […]

Happy Father’s Day!

“Anyone can be a father, but it takes a real man to be a daddy.”  – Anonymous Happy Fathers Day to all fathers and especially to my dad, my husband and my brothers.  This is a great occasion to express gratitude towards your dad for all his love and support. While Mother’s Day was officially […]

To Do List

For those of us who love to make lists:

The Power of Gratitude

Many of us are taught as children to say thank you in exchange for receiving some thing or kind words, primarily under the guise of good manners.  A parent prods the response with “what do you say?” after the child receives a gift or words of praise.  Parents are helping the child establish the habit […]

Inspiration from Women MAKERS

I was fortunate to attend a presentation yesterday given by Betsy West, Associate Professor of Professional Practice, Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.  Besides being a delightful speaker, Betsy is one of the Executive Producers of MAKERS.com, a digital library of interviews with trailblazing women in all walks of life. Betsy spoke about her early […]

The Secret

I’ve read a number of self enlightenment books and it’s interesting how you can read a book at one point in your life and it doesn’t resonate or have much of an impact.  Another time you read a book with a similar message and it makes a big impact.  Most books about happiness, creating wealth, […]

I Love this Thought

This is a thought I return to often and wanted to share.  I am pretty sure we can all think of a time (or many times) where we got upset about something bad that happened and realized later (sometimes much later…) that it opened the door for something great. How peaceful to think about negative […]

Positive Living

After 24 posts (wow.. can’t believe I have written that much already!), I realized I hadn’t yet written about positive living.  It’s time to start! I believe that the degree of a person’s health and happiness are the result of lifestyle choices.  Our bodies are amazing organisms.   If we provide the right raw materials, our […]

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms! I just found out that today is the 100th official Mother’s Day.  In that first Mother’s Day proclamation, issued on May 9, 1914, President Wilson said the holiday gives Americans the chance to express “our love and reverence for the mothers of our country.” Something fun to share:  100 […]
