Positive experiences in a jar

So I said in my Happy New Year post that I wouldn’t be posting GFG! Monthly Challenges each month. But I would post occasional challenges on the Facebook Challenge page. This is a¬†challenge I am doing for myself for 2014. And I decided that more than Facebook Challengers needed to know about this one. Throughout […]


Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone. A new year is always exciting. A clean state. A new start. Or maybe just a continuation of things already forming and molding and becoming. I have known for some time that January is going to be a challenging month for me. And I am trying to not freak out about […]


Regular Restorative practice helps keep me balanced

The December Monthly Challenge was nicknamed 5 for 5. A challenge I made for myself was to attend the Sunday night Restorative Yoga class at my yoga studio every Sunday in December (as long as I was in town). (I won’t be attending this coming Sunday as I will be out of town.) The first […]

In the spirit of 5 for 5, over the next […]

Wow, can you believe that it is already November? Halloween is over. Do you have candy lingering? Before we know it it will be December and Christmas and then a new year. 2014!

Committing to your good health

I have been thinking a lot about priorities lately. About what is important for me and to me. And what makes me happy. (Don’t forget about Do you want to be happy?) One of my friends/co-workers told me that something I said to her lately really hit a chord. And she suggested this be a […]
