Take Emotional Risks

 

Open your heart and arms to new people and experiences. While it might seem safer to remain curled up in your cocoon, it is so much more richly rewarding to reach beyond your comfort zone. Recall that each person you now know and love was once a stranger to you. Can you imagine your life without them? Was it worth the risk to take that leap of faith to welcome them in?

    Such wise counsel, and so timely. I think I will take the emotional risk that I had contemplated today and which, until now, I was reluctant to take.

    Tony:
    How wonderful that you are extending in courage (comes from the French word couer, which means heart) to that ‘intriguingly endearing spirit’ whoever that is. Enjoy the enrichment:)

Light Filled Holiday
This morning, I saw a meme on a friend's Facebook page that expressed: LIKE if you plan to be politically incorrect by saying "Merry Christmas" this holiday season. My response to her was: "If I know what people celebrate, I will greet them with their preferred sentiment. I have friends of many diff

My Mother's Daughter
Yesterday, I did a mini-workshop at Awaken Healing Expo and offered BLISS Coaching; both designed to empower people to live the lives of their dreams and desires.

A Matter of Balance
I am a Libra, born October 13th and have found that balance is an essential ingredient in my wellness cookbook. Some work, some play, some rest. Time with friends and family, time in solitude. Time to dance and sing, time to meditate and veg. Kind of a bio-psycho-social version of Ecclesiastes. I f
