Reflection

It was my birthday this week, and I love to spend this time of year in stillness reflecting on the year passed, and to simmer in what I want for the next. I have come to think that how I spend my birthday is the way I live my life. I have became so much better […]

Smile

Someone last week told me that when they had decided to smile as much as they could throughout the day then things started to change for them in all areas of their lives. Amazing. I recently went to a seminar on meditation and chakras and we were asked to stare at our right palm and […]
