YOU CAN’T FINISH WHAT YOU DON’T START

Many of us have things in our lives right now that we are dragging our heels on – for whatever reason. You know, those should’s, need to’s, chores, tolerations and more that are cluttering the to-do list. Often they are things that are molehills we build into mountains. Things that, if we just did them,…

BEGIN WHERE YOU ARE

Happy New Year! We’re a couple of weeks in – how’s it going so far? Did you burst out of the gate, filled with possibilities and enthusiasm – ready to begin? Or was is a different experience for you altogether? Mind you, there is no “right” way to begin the year, and every year is…

NEW SEASON, NEW BEGINNING

Here we are, the beginning of a new season. The crisp days of autumn are here, the lazy days of summer are just a memory. The pace quickens as the days grow shorter, and there is a pull to start something fresh, a time to reinvent and reimagine who we are. Now is a perfect…

LEAPING INTO MONDAY

Don’t know about you, but in spite of my best intentions,  some Mondays can feel like I‘ve just been shot out of a cannon. Don’t get me wrong – I absolutely love what I do, and am grateful to be able to do work that truly fulfills me. But still, Mondays can feel rushed, with…

SEPTEMBER – AND IT’S TIME

How did it get to be mid-September already? It’s the beginning of a new season, of course, and so much more. The leaves are almost beginning to change colors, and, despite the fact that it is still 90 degrees in Sacramento (where I live) there is a change in the air. There is a…

Are You Choosing YOUR Dream?

In a world filed with so many choices, sometimes it can be daunting to choose. Let’s take ordering a cup of coffee, for example.  30 years ago or so, we could order coffee 2 ways – caffeinated or decaf. Today, when we walk into our local coffee place (Starbucks or countless others – there is…

Egg on My Face

by Fredi Baker Rookie mistake. That’s what I told myself about the teleclass I was a participant in recently. The presenter told us, upfront that she had never used a bridgeline before and never done a class that wasn’t in person. And, boy, the first fifteen minutes or so were rough and rocky. In fact,…

WHAT’S YOUR WORD?

Word cloud created by jasondavies.com/wordcloud/# HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Out with the old year and time to embrace the new one. I’m ready – how about you? For me, 2014 can be best described as mercurial, with a chaser of wonderful and quirky – none of which were my words, by the way. What do I mean…

GRATITUDE

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and…

Even NOT Choosing is a Choice

Every day, we are faced with countless choices. From the moment we wake up, we choose countless everyday things like “shower first, then coffee?” Or, “coffee first? Perhaps tea?” You get the idea. Of course some choices are more important and more difficult, but by not choosing, you are still choosing something. You are choosing to not…
