I rarely quote others, but this is one of my favorite quotes. Macrina Weiderkher was a Benedictine monastic of St. Scholastica Monastery.

Most aren’t even aware of this, but we believe that if we look within, we will find the truth about ourselves and that this will be too terrible to behold. Furthermore, we often believe that to think this of ourselves is humility, and to believe in our beauty is arrogant. (more…)

You have wings…I promise.

I wonder if the caterpillar is aware that it is literally falling to pieces when it’s in the chrysalis. Does it become afraid? Does it think that things have really gone seriously wrong? Does it sit and plan how it will return to “normal,” inching along on the ground? What is happening certainly can’t make any sense to it while it’s happening. Only as it finally emerges and takes flight could it possibly see that it was very mistaken. It could have simply rested in trust all along.

Things are often not as they appear; sometimes, what looks like falling apart is a preparation for a whole new experience. The old ways are sometimes simply out of alignment with the new ones forming, and they need to crumble to make room.

I’ve experienced this a few times, (more…)

My little heart’s nudges are leading me to Paris! Sadly, Prince Pucci will not be joining us, but he will be well taken care of.

I’m most looking forward to indulging in a lot of croissants, pastries…and Chanel.

Is your heart leading you to go on any adventures?

Winds may blow…

Winter is letting us know it’s not over yet where I am. I love winter. Ice storms? Not so much, but they can be beautiful if you don’t have to go out in them.

Appreciate the things with real value today. The more we appreciate them, look for them and express them, the more they grow in and around us.

It’s a new day! It’s unwritten and a new adventure. The past only mucks it up if we stay on yesterday’s page.
Can you find Prince Pucci?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

The love we seek is seeking us; it’s always been inside, waiting for an invitation.

She searched here, there, and everywhere and discovered that all she had been seeking was within her all along.

All the failures weren’t failures at all; she had just been looking in the wrong place. In order to find something, anything, one must look to where it exists. Don’t look outside of yourself, and you’ll find everything you long for…and so much more.

Did someone say sundae?

One of the most delicious mistakes I’ve ever made.

I think I might single-handedly keep the ice cream industry thriving. Hey, it’s a public service. My favorite flavors are, uh, who am I kidding? The flavors I don’t like would be a far shorter list. If I had to pick just one, it would be a banana split. Wink.

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

Can you find Prince Pucci?

It’s a very special day!

Today is the day! It’s the only day we can live, so don’t spend too much time putting it off until tomorrow.

Buy some balloons or some fresh flowers today for yourself or someone else. Use those things reserved for “special occasions.” (Like your bunny slippers. Wink.) Laugh, play, be silly and allow yourself to make mistakes.

But most importantly, speak from your heart and express love as much and as often as you can. Without expectation of a return. Let the love you feel in your heart be payment enough. I am certain that these things are something we never regret doing.
