Today I’m finishing up a new writing project. I’m transforming my “Self Care Cards” deck into an updated version of helpful, healing messages so I’m sharing a blog I wrote last year about one of my favorite things – books.
This morning, I woke up to the realization that while yes, there’s plenty to be done in the outer world, my inner world is the top priority right now. I need to rest more than I think I should. Blows to the emotional immune system take physical energy...
On September 20th I’ll be releasing my next book, You Can Create an Exceptional Life. This book is written with Louise Hay and it’s a teaching story that unfolds over the course of a year of traveling together throughout the US and abroad. I’m excited to share this experience
This morning, as I filled the bird feeders, changed the water in their bath, and tended to the seeds I’ve started for the deck garden, I thought about how I used to rush through these daily chores to get to the gym or to attend a meeting for work, pre-pandemic.
Two years ago I developed a morning ritual of writing one page of spontaneous affirmations in my journal as an uplifting way to start my day. I’d make myself a cup of tea, find a sunny spot in my home (whenever I could), and sit down and write what came to mind. I’ve learned over the years that it’s the feeling an affirmation gives you that fuels its expression in your life so, over time, I crafted a list of affirmations that made me feel hopeful, excited, and instantly inspired.
Last year I adopted a quote from Louise Hay’s daily calendar. The page read: “I choose to make the rest of my life the best of my life.” As soon as the day was done, I hung that page in my office where I’d see it every day. Doesn’t it sound like the perfect guiding principle for a New Year?
