It's a snowy day here in New England and I'm sitting in my livingroom watching Poupon run from window to window trying to catch the big, fluffy snowflakes falling outside just beyond his reach. He's determined to keep at it despite the fact that he never gets the prize. Poor dear...
This morning, I sat on a stool in my bathroom for almost thirty minutes watching my cat, Poupon, study the faucet on our tub. Just before I walked into the room, he somehow managed to turn the knob just enough for the handheld shower to slowly drip, drip, drip water into the tub below. By the time I arrived, he was sitting on the windowsill next to the faucet, trying to figure out where the water was coming from.
Last week, while listening to a program about self-care coping strategies, I heard a therapist talk about what she recommends to clients who feel chronically resentful – a harmful, debilitating state of mind.
Almost every day I post something on my Facebook page in the hopes that it inspires, informs, challenges, or entertains the wonderful people who have joined me there.

This week I caught an interview with Jennifer Hudson, the young singer who was voted off of American Idol and ended up stealing the show in the movie, Dreamgirls. Jennifer was asked how she handled the disappointment of being eliminated from Idol when most people thought she would win.
Over the years many of you have heard me talk about "tapping therapy" - an elegant and efficient method for dealing with fears, phobias, trauma, addiction, weight loss, and so much more. Tapping uses the body's energy system (just like acupuncture) to clear away blocks that are keeping problems in place. As you tap on specific points on the body while repeating phrases related to the issue, life-long problems often vanish.
