The Fours of Nature: Laurie, Mary, Norma, and Dorey What have I been up to lately? According to the date of my last post, it’s apparent that I haven’t been blogging. For one thing, I have added real estate to my collection of careers. Ultimately, I will be purchasing a retreat and realty presented itself … More It’s Own Reward
In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently. ~Tony Robbins On this Wisdom Wednesday (my first in quite a while), this thing about consistency is brought to my awareness … More “…if we want to direct our lives…”

Today I said “buh-bye” to some more things that no longer serve me. I attended a Burning Bowl Ceremony at the spiritual center I attend. I was reminded once again that things I once cherished were the very things I needed to release. Letting go of the past allows me to step into a new … More Moving On
