Making Days Count!


The first month of Quarantine proved to be frustrating–up and down and all around in emotions. I developed some bad habits and I don’t feel good. I’m happy to report that the next round of 30 days is going to be far different! Instead of watching the news on television, reading news on the internetContinue reading “Making Days Count!”

Envy in Malibu


I have the privilege and honor of caring for people’s homes and animals while they are away.  One of the questions people always ask me is: “Do you ever become jealous or envious when  caring for other people’s homes?Do you go into the comparison mode and wish you had more of this wealth and abundance.”Continue reading “Envy in Malibu”

Feeling Freedom


I’m having a hard time finding words for all of the feeling–I caught a glimpse of it this last week.   I felt safe and secure, deeply safe and secure, yet all the indicators in the physical world would not convince you of my security. I live week to week.    I have no savingsContinue reading “Feeling Freedom”

Too Young To Learn From?


I invited a friend to come with me to  yoga.  The teacher of the class is  20 years my junior.   When I invited him, he said, “No, I won’t go to her class–what can I learn from her, she is too young.” I sure am glad I didn’t have that attitude when I firstContinue reading “Too Young To Learn From?”

Another tree had huge thick roots that stuck out above the stream.Continue reading “Dig Deep–I Am That”

Feathers Find Me


It’s amazing the thoughts and beliefs we hold onto. Even long after we are adults and can clear the clutter of the limiting beliefs we’ve been taught, there are still some beliefs that hang on. Lately I have been walking by lots of feathers lying on the ground.  One of the things my mom told meContinue reading “Feathers Find Me”
