Is Your Glass Half Full?

Creating a sense of gratitude might be the most fulfilling thing you can do for yourself.  We can call on gratitude at the most inopportune times.  When things are not going as well as expected, gratitude can turn things around.  When your perspective needs to be checked, take inventory and surprisingly you might find things on your list you have forgotten about. It becomes about what you have, not what you do not have…So, what can gratitude do for you?...more

Sacred Pregnancy : Changing the conversation!

 When author Anni Daulter typed out the first words of her book titled Sacred Pregnancy she couldn't have known what an amazing journey would lie ahead for her. The book that was born from her desire to "change the conversation around the pregnancy journey for women," rapidly took on its own life - growing into a movement that will forever change the way we look at birth in this country. Anni's vision is breathtaking, beautiful, bold and raw. Though her earthy style may appear extreme to some, the core of her message resonates with all - Pregnancy + Birth are sacred! Through her book, magazine, community and retreats, Anni teaches women how to grasp their inner strength, follow their instincts and fight back against ideas of Western Medicine that women can't have an instinctual birth....more

Getting Healthy Part 3... Take a Walk!

In addition to the change in diet we have implemented as a family, the hubby has sold us on the idea of taking a walk around the neighborhood park every night after dinner.  The purpose is three-fold:  to incorporate movement in our daily routine, to walk off any extra calories, and most importantly, to exhaust the little one into an early bedtime. And don’t misunderstand, my 3 year old is not normal, he can stay up all night long if we let him. He is still unusually alert at 2am. Anyway, walking around a lake and feeding the ducks for an hour really helps tire him out....more

the back door to blogs

A lot of people say to me, hey, mo, i love your blog. (I may get embarrassed and try to redirect the conversation). Especially when they usually follow it up with,'s the only one i read. (I still have friends who haven't entered the 'mobile phone' realm). I smile, unsure how to proceed. Sometimes they might stop for a moment, puzzled, and say How did you even manage to start a blog? Now, I'm a person who wishes that I was easy and comfortable with change, but frankly, I'm not. With me it takes a long time....more

Motivation for Bookworms - Could I Just Read About Doing A Push-Up?

I tell myself I will sign up for that yoga class. I think about it every time I get a twinge or a crook in the neck. The days move forward and so does any lack of movement toward an actual decision or action....more

I guess if you wanna lay on it it has to at least have a butt clear spot.


Music and Movement and Guest Blogger upcoming this week....

I've always loved this band and this song.  I can totally relate to semi-tortured artists, being one of them.  The muse is moved more by things that haunt you vs. anything else.  When you listen to songs on the radio or read poetry, or books, whether fiction or non... it's pretty notable.  Anyway, this song, when it came out, really impressed me.  The late Kurt Cobain wrote this song and it is sung by the band Nirvana:  All Apologies<span style="font-weight:bold;">What else should I beAll apologiesWhat else could I say ...more
