Feeling Acknowledged

May 10th. I just got an e-mail for my older step-daughter. It was brief but it meant a lot to me. She thanked me and expressed her heartfelt love across the miles from NYC to CA. I felt recognition for all the years of happiness and adversity we experienced.  She is an adult now and we don’t see each other much but there...

Business Is Personal

Finding Acceptance

May 7th. I’m tired today. I think the impact of what I learned last night has finally sunk in. Changing my diet and sticking to it, is not an option, it’s a necessity.

Moment To Moment

May 2nd. The only way to live my life is one moment to the next. It’s ok to look back to learn from where I’ve been or to look forward to see where I want to go, but regrets for past mistakes or worry about future plans are all a waste of my present.  I  know the days when I am happiest, when the sky seems bluer, the...

Daily Balance

Daily Balance May 1st. I’m learning to find balance by watching myself as I go about my day, recognizing some of my ingrained behaviors. Small changes make a big difference.
