Speak Your Peace

Today I attended a seminar with my 2nd grade class that taught them methods of dealing with bullies in school. The assembly lasted about an hour and when it ended, I felt such a great deal of love for the kids, for my co-workers, and for the presenters. The main theme was that all of… Continue reading Speak Your Peace

Proud of You

A few years ago I began a project that I never thought would happen for me. I was working on a podcast, a co-host for Natural Peace Radio... a podcast all about me and the work I've been doing for several years as a life coach, tarot advisor and healer. Like most things, I went… Continue reading Proud of You

The Star Card

It's been a while since I've written about a specific Tarot card but this is one of my ABSOLUTE favorites in the deck. The Star is one of the most stunning and encouraging cards in the Tarot. The woman in the card is shown vulnerable - even naked in some of my decks - asking… Continue reading The Star Card

Congestion

For several weeks I have been battling a cold that has manifested into a full blown sinus infection. Last week, over the phone, my mother advised that I should head to urgent care and request an antibiotic for this one. Moms know best and I took my sweet time listening to her advice. Then on… Continue reading Congestion

Understanding the Anger

On the surface, I look like a pretty happy person. I have a wonderful life, children and a husband that I love, and that love me unconditionally. I have happy animals, a sweet and comfortable home. I have food in my belly, medications to keep me healthy. I have family around me, friends who love… Continue reading Understanding the Anger

I could tell you horror stories about my first year learning to ride a snowboard, but in time... I began to get more comfortable and… Continue reading I Can Do This!

Please Slow Down

Happy New Year friends! It's 2019... are you all still with me?? I don't know about you guys but the last few weeks of 2018 had my head spinning. In early December I was second guessing myself quite a bit because of a decision I had made in the early fall months. I had signed… Continue reading Please Slow Down

Deep Gratitude

As we move into the next few weeks, we are faced with a choice... we can focus on all that we have, or we can fall into the trap of accumulating. The Holidays are upon us, and many are torn as they look at the future and wonder how things will work out. Today I… Continue reading Deep Gratitude

Appreciation for the Sun

I picked my daughter up from school on Friday in a cold wintry mess. There was a cross between snow, slush and rain falling from the sky and it reminded me that winter is on its way in. Such is life in upstate New York! However cold and gross last week was though, the weekend… Continue reading Appreciation for the Sun

20 Minutes

Last week I walked into my house after a long day at school where I work as a 2nd grade Teacher Aide. I had both of my small children (2 and 6 years old) in tow and I was extremely close to exploding. I will be honest... as much as I enforce morning time for… Continue reading 20 Minutes
