Releasing and letting go

I’ve been having a profound experience of releasing expectations for the past week.

On Jan. 1, I began participating in a weight release group.  Prior to the new year, we had made our plans about how we would begin adjusting our eating and exercise habits in order to honor ourselves and our bodies.  Mine had …

What kind of movie should I star in?

My mentor and dear friend Rev. Nancy often admonishes me that in the movie of my life I get to choose whether I want to be in a horror/suspense script or a romantic comedy script.  And, wouldn’t you know it, when I call her, it’s usually because I’ve chosen to reread scenes from the horror …

It’s okay, you’re not gonna die

I’ve been having trouble with my contact lenses for the last couple of months.  So much so that I’ve taken to wearing my glasses to work a few times a week, which is extremely unusual. A while back I called my eye doctor for an appointment and today was the big day. And with it …

When being sick is a good thing

While I was in New York last week, I wasn’t too careful about the food I was eating.  I tried for the first day or so, but by the time Monday rolled around and I had a six-hour car trip home, I was digging into the potato chips and sugary snacks.

Let me back up …

Letting the past be the past

Last night I introduced you to several of the women I met over the weekend, including a beautiful young woman named Jen.  There was one piece of the story that I neglected to share, so tonight I’m giving you – as Paul Harvey would say – the rest of the story…

As you all know …

How Leah got her groove back

I fell in love this weekend.  Madly, completely, head-over-heels, crazy in love.

I can hear you through my computer screen – WHO DID SHE MEET?

I met myself again.  I met my work again.  I met my purpose again.  And in the process I met a group of phenomenal people and fell in love with …

Waiting to exhale

I made it.  Yesterday is over.  I’m grateful for all the support and love I’ve received from everyone.  It’s a reminder to me – in the past I wouldn’t usually say anything, so I wouldn’t get any support.  Just goes to show what happens when I let myself be vulnerable – amazing angels show up …

Finding the core

Recently I found this in a bag of baby carrots:

As I’ve mentioned a few times in the last month or so, I’m going through a period of deep introspection, processing and healing.

When I saw this carrot, it seemed like the perfect embodiment of what I’ve been doing: going straight the core and …
