Are there times in your life, when you feel discouraged, overwhelmed and wondering when you will jump off the hamster wheel on which you have been spinning? You set out on your day, only to be met with ‘spiritual flat tires’ that leave you on the side of the road, waiting for AAA to come rescue you. Have you had an expectation that relationships, career, money, health and well-being would look certain ways that just don’t match up with your vivid imagination? Do you give up and give in, or do you leave the heavy baggage of disappointment in a ditch?

I have always been surrounded by cheerleaders, yay-sayers, and blessedly few nay-sayers.  Rarely do I remember being told that I couldn’t do, be or have what I wanted in my life. My parents were among my most ardent rah-rahs; telling me me that I was smart, beautiful and accomplished. In the midst of spiritual amnesia, I sometimes forget all of that and it takes a team to remind me. Lucky for me they show up, even before they are needed, to keep my tank full.


Most of the critics throughout my life have sounded remarkably like me; the inner voice that tells me I will never succeed as marvelously as I imagine. The not-enough mantra resounds through my mind at times and I need to silence it by over dubbing with lyrical love.

I am glad to be an encourager who provides a listening ear, a shoulder to lean on, a hug, a pom-pom waving, foot stomping, hug offering place to land.  Love being the wind beneath wings ~I am grateful for the many who have played that role for me.

What Would Yoda Say?
Although he is a fictional character created by Muppeteers Frank Oz and Jim Henson, Yoda remains my favorite little green sage. His wisdom is exemplary and in his death, he melted back into the Force, as I believe we all do. One of the most ...
