Low-Carb Eating Plan

Ok, it’s official! As of November 1, I’m going back on a low-carb eating plan.  Even though I love sweets, it just has to be.  Menopause and a slower metabolism is working against me these days.  I walk a mile every morning but I know it has to be supplemented with a low-carb lifestyle.  I…

Male Menopause

So how come when women hit menopause we have to put up with weight gain, hot flashes and cranky “episodes” and men get to date younger women and ride motorcycles?  In my next life, I must come back as a man.  (I think I’ve been one in a previous lifetime).

Looking Good; Feeling Good

Many people have made a comment on my skin lately.  Actually I’ve received six compliments on my skin in the past few weeks.  As a woman past 60, it sure makes me feel good! But the reason I say this is that I started using a coconut oil moisturizer on my skin and then apply…

Let Go of Dis-Ease

Is there anyone in your life who complains of physical ailments?  If so, maybe it’s time to NOT engage in that kind of conversation with them anymore.  I just read an article that says that what we profess tends to manifest itself if done on a consistent basis.  I truly believe that.  I think we…

The Gang of Six

When my brother died last year, I thought that as each day passed it would get easier. Well, some days it was easier. Some days I was in denial. Some days I still am. Sometimes the phone will ring and for a fleeting moment, I’ll expect to see his name come up on the caller…

Stating Intentions

This is a re-post of something (from the Intenders Handbook) that I believe is wonderful about stating our intentions. Have you ever noticed the power of your words? I know someone that, when I ask how he is, he says “not too bad.” Notice how negative that is? What if he got into the habit…

How to Simplify Your Life

There are probably hundreds of books and thousands of articles about the topic of simplifying your life.  You could: get rid of all the clutter in your house, your dorm room, your apartment, your garage, your car . . . any place that has too much “stuff” dump all the extraneous emails that you think…

Unbridled Anger vs. Unlimited Love

Which one would you choose?  Unbridled anger or unlimited love?  Which emotion makes you feel better? Many people are angry about what’s going on around the world and I can understand that.  We’re in two middle Eastern countries fighting a war that is absolutely stupid in my opinion.  One country is all about the oil…

Ghouls and a Goblin

In preparation for Halloween and the full Hunter’s moon tonight, I took the artistic liberty of altering some photos of my special “peeps.” They’re really NOT this creepy-looking in real life.  The Hunter’s Moon is tonight.  What is the Hunter’s moon?  October’s Full Moon is called the “Hunter’s Moon” or sometimes the “Blood Moon” or…

Number Sequences

For the past few months I’ve noticed that many times when I look at a clock there’s number sequences.  Like 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, 5:55.  Then there’s the other ones I’ve noticed . . . 10:11, 11:11, 11:12, etc.  It’s absolutely bizarre how this happens for a couple of days in a row and then…

The Struggle Ends When This Happens

It’s been said that the struggle will end when we become grateful for what is. Yes, I believe we have to take definitive action sometimes, but not always. It seems that most of the time we resist what is and if we spend that much time resisting, what time is there left for joy? Sometimes…
