Tune Tuesday #22 – Where is the Love?

In November, I was in isolation from the familiar. I wasn’t in Los Angeles, but home with my family. While I visit my family often, I didn’t have the energy, or communication with friends that have become standard during my visits home. Being sick shifted all my plans for the month. A week visit home…

Mindful Monday #92 – Do Not Lose Your Inner Peace

It’s Monday and I am back for real. This month has been a challenge from the start and it resembles my entire year. No part of this year was easy. Before I restored my energy from pushing through one challenge, I found myself faced with a new challenge. There were several times this year when I felt…

Mindful Monday #91 – Respect Everyone

“What is wrong with people?” “What is going on?” These are a few common questions that I have heard a lot these past few years. I’m still shocked by the turn of events in our world. News keeps getting more grim. There is a real battle between light and darkness, love and hate, good and evil,…

#PrayforParis

I’m really upset with the events in Paris yesterday. I have no words for the state of the world at this time. Whatever you are feeling, let it not harden your heart towards negativity. Love and light is all we need at this time and more then ever. Above all else, please hold on to…

Tune Tuesday #19 – What the World Needs Now

Home is distinctly different each time I visit, because my intentions are different. I came home this weekend to be with my sister aka the doc student and her baby for Halloween and so I could rest. Her daughter is her first child and the first grand child and niece to our family. I am…

Tune Tueday #3 – Peace at a Distance

From a distance everything looks at peace within society, our communities and within ourselves. When we dig deeper or when acts of violence occur, we are reminded that their is more going on underneath the surface. We should know our loved ones well, but many times we don’t. If we stop to think about the…

Wicked

Is there anyone in your life at the moment or from your past that makes you sick? They irritate you?  Bother you?  And You’d be okay if you never saw them again? Everyone at one point in their life or another knows or knew someone that they had trouble embracing.  Perhaps at times we have…

Does Peace Have a Chance?

As a little girl, I was aware that there were problems in the world, way before I could fully understand those problems. I always believed that world peace was possible and hoped that as I got older I would hold on to that belief. Recently, when I was home with my family for Thanksgiving we…

Wisdom Wednesday #12 – A Message For All Of Humanity

As a little girl I believed whole heatedly that world peace was possible.  Now as an adult I still hold on that belief as a possibility and a necessity. Too often we hold on to grudges.  Too often we focus on differences. In my human experience I have learned in academia that we are more…
