What can we recycle?

Tweet My husband and I have pledged to reduce our trash and garbage and recycle more, but I get so confused about what can and cannot be recycled so I did a little research and decided to share what I’ve learned. Please know that this is just a guide to help clarify some of the…

Catching Up

Tweet It’s been awhile since I posted. It was harder than I thought getting back into the swing of things after my Mom past away in January. For awhile I was pretty depressed. I was having difficulty balancing it all. I tried to keep going. I even started a new business as an Access Consciousness®…

What’s New

Tweet Last year I started studying Access Consciousness® and learned a new, holistic, hands-on, energetic body process that works by gently touching 32-points on the head. This is referred to as running Bars. It is incredibly relaxing, better than a massage, relieves stress and for some people helps create amazing changes in their lives. I’ve…

Small Steps, Taking My Own Advice

Tweet Yesterday I launched my new website for my new business. I’d spent weeks making notes, working on the website, starting and stopping and getting nowhere. There was too much to do and not enough time. I was continually making notes and overwhelming myself with everything I thought I had to do. I wanted a…

Wow, How Time Flies!

Tweet Wow! Has it really been seven months since I last posted here? I guess it has, but I really didn’t notice that so much time had gone by. As many of you know after a three years of treatment for stage IV cancer my Mom went on hospice in January 2012. I spent the…

Self-Care as a Daily Practice

Tweet Yesterday I wrote in my journal, “self-care needs to become a daily practice.” I like the word ‘practice because in implies I don’t have to be perfect. When I think about self-care all kinds of ‘shoulds’ pop into my head. I should eat better. I should stop eating carbs. I should exercise more. I…

Fun, Interesting and Odd Facts About Me You Might Not Know

Tweet I’m the oldest of my siblings. I have authority issues and hate to be told what to do, (even if it’s me telling me what to do). I’m bossy. I’m a contradiction. (See previous two statements as an example.) I love disaster films like The Towering Inferno, Airport, Earthquake, The Day After Tomorrow. I…
