Do You Struggle With Transitions? Gratitude Helps

Greetings from Wellfleet Massachusetts. On May 8, my husband Chip, our dog Murphy, and I loaded up our car and embarked on a 19-day cross-country trip. 4,700 miles later we arrived. It's a transition I anticipate, as we make this trek each year. Wellfleet is a special...

Journal with Me: Creating Space

Last week you thought about what you might want to explore as we enter spring and experience more opening up in general. Maybe your inhale was learning something new, or connecting with special people, or exploring a new creative venture. Whatever you choose, do you...

Do you feel like you’ve been holding your breath? And now that things are changing do you want to take a deep inhale? There’s something about spring that makes me want to take a deep breath, to inhale both physically and metaphorically. Inhaling holds many...
