Cheryl Richardson > Who Are The Sheep In Your Herd?

I’m no longer willing to spend the precious time I have left on the planet dodging sarcasm, feigning interest in boring topics, or defending my choice to live an examined life.

Cheryl Richardson > What Could I Do To Love Myself More in 2016?

“What could I do to love myself more in 2016?” I asked my husband and a few close friends this question given what they know about me and how I live my life.

Cheryl Richardson > A Call for Compassion

When we get scared or triggered by something that makes us feel powerless or afraid, we tend to go from being full-functioning, clear-thinking adults, to children who act impulsively. 

As I think about the upcoming year, I have no doubt there will be challenges. There’s so much happening on the planet right now and it’s easy to feel anxious about our future.

Cheryl Richardson > If You Want To Beat The Blues, Do This.

I woke this morning to a wall of gray outside my bedroom window. The fog was so thick, I couldn't see a thing. Ugh, I thought, today is going to be cold and gray and depressing. Not the best thought to start the day with. 

Cheryl Richardson > Let Me Disappoint You

I hate being disappointed.  There's nothing worse than getting your hopes up only to have them squelched when something doesn't turn out the way you plan.  And that's precisely why I hate to disappoint others.  Over the years I've watched myself go on autopilot when someone asks for a favor, saying "yes" when I know in my gut that I'd rather not do it.  Or I've suffered, spending too much time trying to come up with a graceful way to let someone down so they wouldn't feel hurt or angry at my "no."

As I sat down to write this week’s newsletter, I realized that today is a special day.  A special date, actually.  It’s 10/10/10.  So, inspired by these numbers, I decided to do something fun.  In an effort to help you take good care of yourself, I quickly made a list of ten things to say yes to, ten things to say no to, and ten things that contribute to a great life, overall.  I hope you find a few on the list that resonate for you!

This morning, while reflecting on my last unpleasant visit to a doctor, I wrote a letter in my journal as a way to work through my frustration. A letter I wish I could send to every ‘checked out’ healthcare provider.

Cheryl Richardson > In Praise of The Ordinary

The New Year is off to an ordinary start in our house. Lounging in pajamas. Drinking tea. Staring out the window. Cleaning junk drawers. Taking long walks. Watching movies.

"Money cannot buy peace of mind. It cannot heal ruptured relationships, or build meaning into a life that has none." -- Richard M. DeVos

While searching for a resource in past newsletters, I came across a topic I wrote about in 2000 that's worth repeating during this difficult economic time. It's about where real security comes from.
