Are you SUPPOSED to be here?

Today I’m reflecting on where I’m “supposed” to be right now. That was somewhere over the Atlantic on route back from a trip to England to visit family and in particular to see my  sister who is suffering with cancer right now. My youngest daughter is “supposed” to be at college. My other kids in … Continue reading Are you SUPPOSED to be here?

Sending Light and love for the holidays

I have been notably absent in the last couple of weeks and I have felt like the Holidays were canceled this year. Trying to pack up and downsize in just a few weeks all while the Holidays are suddenly upon me and my youngest daughters are back here. The result of all this is a … Continue reading Sending Light and love for the holidays

It’s the most (wonderful/emotional /stressful/hopeful/lonely/) fill in your blank time of the year!

I'm going with wonderful, but there were years when I definitely didn't feel that way. As I am talking with clients and also already getting my kids’ “suggestions” for presents this week, my thoughts are focused on the Holidays and the various emotions that they evoke.

And the same goes for you. The “what to make for special meals” sections … Continue reading Are you getting fed up with people asking you what you are doing for Passover or Easter?

February 14th again?

When I was a teacher of young children, one of the biggest days of the school year was Mother’s Day. There were cards to make, poems to write, songs to learn, gifts to put together. Then of course there was the special Mother’s Day Tea events that working mothers had to carve out time for. … Continue reading February 14th again?

From Fear to Fabulous…yes, you can

The challenges that many face after midlife divorce can seem totally overwhelming. The life that you thought you were "supposed" to have may have evaporated and along with it your view of a secure future, perhaps even financial stability that you were counting on. For many who were working in a job that needed a … Continue reading From Fear to Fabulous…yes, you can

Ever thought of doing an exercise class with HIS new wife?
