Self-Nourishment during Covid

Posted by:

Our days have certainly changed since my last post, haven’t they? We are living with such uncertainty. All around us though, us humans are stepping up and showing love and kindnesses in the most remarkable, creative ways! We see examples of them every day on Social Media, the news and in our own neighborhoods.

One of the greatest acts of love we’re all being asked to follow are  the staying-at-home directives. Challenging, yet it is the ultimate act in caring for ...

Where to Begin?

Posted by:

I can’t tell you how many times my readers tell me that they really want to live a more “non-toxic” lifestyle but they don’t know where to begin.

I admit it can be overwhelming, but I do have a few suggestions for making the transition easier!

I’d like to add that it’s important to give yourself a high five ...

The Power of Two – Intention & Change

Posted by:

I wrote about “The Power of Two” last January as an exercise in de-cluttering, intended to reduce the crush of feeling overwhelmed. Many of us dread home projects because they can loom so large in our minds. Truth is, many times they are large. My daily mantra for the past year has been “the power of two, the power of two,” in helping me find empowerment, accomplishment and change in my daily actions ...

Blooming Beauty All Around!

Posted by:

We’ve all heard this saying, “You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” Today’s post, Flowers!

It’s mid-summer and aren’t many of us surrounded by beautiful flowers either where we live, where we work or where we are traveling? I think most of us would be hard pressed to say there isn’t a beautiful garden to enjoy somewhere near us. What is it about flowers that make us ...
