Cellular Busy-ness

I used to be harsh on myself when I took quiet time to do nothing; now, I savor it.

Most people who know me would be more likely to say the opposite, that my cells and the bio-body that contains them are so busy that it would be hard to determine which moves at a more rapid pace. I refer to myself sometimes as ‘functionally manic’ and can multi-task admirably and only occasionally drop a plate or two that I might be spinning. In the past week, I have forgotten a few appointments and feel like I am scrambling to keep up. Good thing I have calendars on line and in book form. As I am writing this, I am listening to Neil Young and considering the next line in this blog entry AND what I need to accomplish tomorrow AND do my radio show tomorrow night AND prep for a weekend in which I will be away, which means packing, setting up the GPS to get me to an interim and then final destination on Friday AND do laundry AND see clients AND do paperwork AND in between those activities, ‘normal people stuff’ like sleeping, eating and bathing…oh and breathing if I want to be able to continue to accomplish all those tasks.

Another friend, Jenny Perry shared her wisdom: “Sometimes when you feel you’ve run out of steam on your dream, your soul is just refueling.”

I told her that my dream and I need refueling and that I am feeling inspired, tired and wired. Just today I was speaking with a co-worker and said that I need an intentional vacation during which I can rest and re-create…not by accident, happenstance or illness. My cells could use a trip to someplace ahhhh inducing; doesn’t have to be very far. It would involve quiet time in the embrace of nature, with massage and relaxing music; lovely company and healthy food. Setting intention for creating that sooner rather than later. I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, I intend to visit dreamland shortly which might just involve the scenario that I described above.

Invulnerable and Invincible?
  Yesterday, in the midst of a radio interview with Kerri Kannan,  I was asked a question about vulnerability. It is a topic that has become as familiar as the fingers typing these words. I was awakened to it when viewing a TEDTalk by Brene' Brown a year or so ago. It doesn't come easily to

The Now What Club
This morning, I joined two dear friends for brunch at Mal's Diner in Skippack, PA.  After a heart-healthy workout in cardiac rehab, I had a heart- happy  meal of egg whites, spinach (no cheese), fresh fruit instead of home fries and dry (no butter) whole grain toast. Yvonne Kaye has been my mentor

Enjoy Every Moment
Feeling emotionally raw at the moment, having just returned from a day of honoring my friend Delane Lipka. I had written about another extraordinary day in a previous Beliefnet article called In the Garden of Eden that described a gathering of kindred spirits that had been organized by Delane. For d

Cardia-versary
This morning marks 3 months since I experienced the kind of pain that cracks you open and has you revealing the emotional viscera that had long lay dormant. Literally at this moment, I was captured by the symptoms of a heart attack- searing heart burn pain, jaw tightness and wringing wet sweats. I s

Cosmic Coincidence
My definition of cosmic coincidence are those events that have me shaking my head in bewildered awe, asking "What are the chances that such a thing could happen?"  My answer is always the same. "100%, since it occurred." It is that encounter with just the right person, hearing a song on the radio r
