I gave a sermon at our local Unity Church and, after the service, I stayed for a while to talk with members of the congregation. It didn’t take long to discover that, like many in our online community, people are struggling. I listened as men and women shared stories of having to work overtime without extra pay just to keep their jobs, families who are worried about losing their homes, or business owners who have watched their income drop dramatically over the last few months while expenses have increased at the same time.

Last month, while enjoying some time to myself at a local park, I overheard a conversation between two women who were talking about how frustrated they were with their jobs. They were sitting close by and, while I was doing my best to mind my own business, I couldn’t help but notice how much time and energy they were investing in the problem.

Cheryl Richardson > Birthing the New: Make Space for What's Next

There’s something new being born in my life.  I know this because I’ve felt the desire to go through my house and office looking for things that need a new home – the items that represent the past that need to go. You know when something new is trying to come into your life when...

This week's rebroadcast is a newsletter I wrote after a visit from an angel at the gym.  Who knew I'd find one there :).  Keep your eyes open -- you never know when one will show up.  Here goes...

Several months ago while surfing the net I came across the following quote by Lawrence Kushner:

In this moment I’m reminded, once again, that so much of my time has been spent trying to make things happen – pushing and prodding my way to a better life.

 

It was 10:30 when the oppressive summer heat finally gave way to cool night air that kept the mosquitoes at bay. I plopped down on a zero gravity chair in the middle of our deck, pushed back on the arms, and came face-to-face with a stunning, cloudless sky.

Several years ago, while teaching The Writer's Workshop on a cruise ship, our group experienced an important moment that highlighted a universal theme. A brave woman shared that the subject of her book was a departure from the more traditional life she grew up in. The thought of publishing her work for the world to see ignited the pain she felt as an outsider in her family - the unconventional one in a world of convention. 

A couple of weeks ago I had a conversation with my friend Melanie, who had given birth to a baby girl a few months earlier and was now nervous about going back to work. Like so many new moms, she couldn't imagine leaving her baby with someone else. Melanie is a communications executive with a company in the Midwest. She's been with them for more than seven years and has enjoyed a fruitful career.

Cheryl Richardson > The Intention Ritual: Celebrate your life

Last night my husband Michael held a 50th birthday party for me with a surprise guest list of important family and friends. It was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the half-century mark with people who have touched my life in meaningful ways. It set the stage for another celebration - a gift I give myself every year, and one I invite you to give yourself, too.

Cheryl Richardson > Self-Care Club

I've just arrived home from Omega where I taught a Mother's Day weekend retreat about developing the qualities and habits of an extraordinary mother. We had a terrific group of women and this week I'd like to share ten pieces of wisdom from our time together. Here we go...
