How I Fell in Love…with The Potato Diet

On February 6th, I embarked on a 30-day healthy eating program, which is basically eating like a vegan, minus the nuts and oils. No meat. No dairy. No eggs. No fun, or so one might think. We kicked it off with a Potato Feast, where the only things we ate for five days, were potatoes.  […]

Gratitude And Prozac Have This In Common

Gratitude and Prozac both help Depression! Yesterday I read a great article which says that when we feel grateful, we boost our levels of the neurotransmitters, serotonin and dopamine.

Can You See a Sign if Your Eyes are Closed?

I absolutely love hearing about signs people receive after losing a loved one, and there’s a few reasons I sometimes blog about them… Most people (not all) find those kind of stories heart-warming and inspiring.

Setting Your Intention vs Just Wanting Something

Setting an intention for something you want is a bit different then just wanting it. It’s the difference between saying “I’d like to figure out how to get this,” and saying “I want this today, thank you very much.” Do you see the difference?

When It Comes to Boxes, Inside is the New Outside

When it comes to boxes, inside is the new outside Over the past few months, I’ve been connected with some new and rather unexpected teachers, lessons, philosophy and tools. Book after book, teacher after teacher, lesson after lesson ~ all of them seem to be finding their way to me; connecting and resonating with me. […]

The Year of Learning Dangerously

You can listen to the post by clicking above I’m calling this “The Year of Learning Dangerously” for two reasons: I’ve been doing a whole lotta learning lately, and Some of it feels a little random, a little risky… a little dangerous.
