100 Thank You's

Maybe one day I'll give a little big speech in a rather large auditorium with a trophy of some variety, earned not politically but legitimately for my work (creative, humanitarian or otherwise), in a dress that is a deep, emerald green, borrowed emeralds dripping from my ears, clip ons, of course, because my holes are loose and can't handle dangleys. I'll go home and put said trophy of some sort on a shelf, a place where I can see it when I want but not all the time, lest it come to define me and distract me from THE WORK....more
Thanks, Anastasia! Same to you. x more

Phenomenal Woman. That's You.

Good morning, Each day is a new beginning. An opportunity to regroup. Start over. Take a step in a new and different direction. The only thing that really keeps us from knowing what we want is denying the impulses which clearly instruct. So, stay as connected to your gut intuition as possible. Indecision, in some instances, is just a defense mechanism. I spent two years seeing a man who did not want the same things as me. We didn't share the same long term goals....more

What Motivates You?

What Motivates You? Good morning! I just got back from such a great spin class at Equinox in Woodbury. At 8AM, on a Sunday, almost all the bikes were taken. My mind was drifting a little at first and so was my gaze over into the cardio room, which was also PACKED. At 8AM. On a Sunday! ...more

Can You Prevent Your Child's Eating Disorder?

According to Dr. Bermudez, roughly 2/3 of patients with eating disorders at the time they are diagnosed are also diagnosed with psychiatric comobility (they are also diagnosed with another mental illness at the same time). Mood disorders are the most common (depression and anxiety). He's quick to point out that mood disorders are also more common across the board in terms of mental illness, than say, schizophrenia, so it does make sense -- but to me the important part is what comes next. ...more

What Would Cleopatra Say?

What Would Cleopatra Say? It takes way more responsibility to enjoy your life than to complain about it. It takes way more responsibility to handle your pleasure than to be angry at other people because you are not getting yours. It takes way more responsibility to investigate your desires than to blame others because your dreams haven't come true. There is no such thing as failure when you pursue your inner desires. The only failure is compromise and mediocrity. - Regina Thomashauer (aka Mama Gena!) Good morning!...more

Good morning, YES, you are!! Thanks for the comment and props. Looking forward to reading your ... more
