Am I Open?

Our world of Covid has shown us how businesses persevere to remain open. It got me thinking in what ways am I open and not open in my personal life. When have I quit too soon or when have I plowed ahead without pausing to see the wildflowers in the fields? When have I assumed

We Always Have Beauty

Happy Fall, L’shana Tova, (May it be a good year ahead) These chrysalis were given to us as a gift.  They have been growing in the living room by the window. We chat with them daily, and this morning they emerged. So thankful we weren’t ASLEEP when they arrived. Hope. Beauty. Transformation. New Life.   WELCOME.

Attending College During Covid-19

You can imagine the empty nesters and soon to be empty nesters calling, “I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO about sending my kids to college?”  I believe universities, educators, physicians, are really trying to make it safe. STILL, this is your child’s life.  I don’t mean to sound dramatic and you probably already know it.

She gave me permission during this Covid time to share, changing her name. I’m always the one in the room who raises my hand to help, to say I’m in.  Well, since sheltering at home and living solo, I don’t want to raise my hand.  People don’t get how much self-talk of cheerleading I do

What I Wasn’t Doing and Changed

During Covid-19, screen connections are joining us with new activities, work, friends, learning, and family.  In our group, each of us discovered what we weren’t doing well. LISTENING. We noticed we were taking for granted that we were actually good listeners.  Then the conversation deepened. We come to the screen time with pre-conceived ideas of

Daily Routine During Covid

We had this discussion during our group gathering. One thing everyone said and is true for me, as well, is, they DON’T do same same but they include the activities during the day and evening that usually are the same, just not as a routine.  So, I thought I would list them for you.  Each

I Can’t Do It

“I need to be cheered forward,” the phone session caller shared with me. Continuing she added, “I was raised to always do what has to be done. Get it done.  I just can’t.  I hate this coronavirus. Can you help me?” I wanted to reach through the phone and hug her, sit her on my

I Need You

We had so much fun at dinner, yes sheltered at home, being playful with the words I NEED YOU.  The eldest daughter started the conversation sharing that this is for fun and also a bit uncomfortable. She offered to be the “facilitator “to keep things flowing and feeding back if needed.  Here is a short

Do You Have Zoom Fatigue?

Natalie spoke with AARP about video calls, why they may be draining, and how you can cope. Life coach and counselor Natalie Caine says that another way to keep calls enjoyable is to appoint a conversation leader in advance (someone who will, for example, ask everyone how they’re doing), and then structure the call on

We are all experiencing the enemy of this pandemic.  That word, enemy, ignited a deep conversation during our women’s GROUP. How do I know if I have an ENEMY?
