Self-Love Poem by Charlie Chaplin

    As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”. As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call ... Read more

How Do I Love Me? Let me count the ways…

It's February and all things of the heart are in many of our thoughts. To love is more than a feeling, it’s an action don’t you think? So let's start at the core of where to show this love first. I am sure you guessed it to be yourself. Yes, you can stand in front of a mirror and state your desire to love yourself, but is that where it ends? A few questions that may help you get better at self-love. How do ... Read more

Happy Everything, Everyone!

I am someone who enjoys the holidays! Friends have been cheerfully celebrating Hanukkah while others busily prepare for Christmas. There are many others who celebrate different traditions as well and not all of them right now, but we can all wish them love and happiness! I love everything about this time of year. Well, almost everything. I love the pretty lights glowing as I drive through my neighborhood making everything sparkle! Baking special treats to gift my friends over the holiday season ... Read more

Give peace a chance

I didn’t know what peace really meant. When I was young it meant a very small portion of something as there were eight of us to share and as kids our piece was always small. I figured out the difference as I grew up. As a teen it came in the saying “Peace, man”. There was “give peace a chance” that John Lennon said in the 60’s, from a bed holed up in the Queen Elizabeth Hotel with Yoko Ono in ... Read more

Is home where your heart is?

They say that home is where the heart is. Who are ‘they” anyways? Well the heart of my home is the kitchen. Actually it is where I am sitting right now, on a stool at the counter with a cup of tea at my right, even though I am a lefty. I can’t stop writing and want my tea hot so there you have it. When family and friends come over for a meal or to commiserate over a cup of tea, ... Read more

Have you ever had “yeah, but-itis”?

I cannot tell you how many times people have said “yeah, but…” in response to something I said. I may have had an opinion, insight or idea they either never heard completely or couldn’t be bothered to listen. Like they were busily creating what they were going to say. Brushing me off completely while they created their case! I end up feeling like I don’t matter or that I must defend myself. It’s awful! How do I know that this may have ... Read more

What’s in a name and how did you get yours?

I was second born to my 11 month older brother in Winnipeg, Manitoba on November 28, 1958. I have 4 younger siblings of which 2 were girls and 2 were boys. I was given my father’s name Rowland, even though my parents were not married until five of the six of us were born- I was told this nugget as a teen. I was named after the perky character from the song in the movie “Tammy and the Batchelor” which came ... Read more

Evesdropping #2 “Eve has been shoulding all over herself!”

You met Eve last week in “Eve” a REAL client! Eve had come a long way in her quest for happiness and value in her first coaching session. Her next session began with thoughts about feeling guilty. Eve felt guilty about so many things. Guilt about not being the best mom, not doing enough of ‘this’ and even doing too much of ‘that’ at times…I know that you get what I am talking about. Some of you have been there, ... Read more

It took me 50+ years to find my purpose…

Today I know what my purpose is and I can tell you that it took more than 50 years to find it. It is not apparent in all that I do, but I am getting closer daily. I believe God had guided me to be of service with what I have learned in my first 50 years. I expect to have another 50 as my mom’s mom lived to be 99! This purpose comes to me in the form of intuition. ... Read more

10 “Energizing” Habits #2…What feeds your soul?

What feeds your soul? Yeah, for me! Last week I kicked off “10 daily “energizing” habits and I for one did it! Well I did the first one, which was the plan, after all. I was a bit lazy on the weekend as I did some writing in advance, sort of. In reality I wrote every day as I was working on a new piece or editing one for the next day so it seems that is the nature of this beast. ... Read more
