Shower Power

Water_interior_light_227488_m

Most people take showers to clean their bodies. I also take showers to ‘come clean’ which to me means, to wash off the gritty and grimy thoughts and emotions that cling to me as well.

Imagine a beautiful, hot summer day (which feels really good right about now, since here in PA, it is still in the mid double digits) in which you are down on your hands and knees, planting a garden. Sweat is dripping down your face, and mud is caked to your knees. You stand and stretch, wiping your hands on your drenched t-shirt as you admire the neat rows of posies and plants. You smile as you take the back of your hand and brush your hair, which is all askew, out of your face., leaving streaks of dirt across your forehead and cheeks.

Entering the house to cool off and clean up, you peel off your clothes, dump them into the washing machine and head for the bathroom. You turn on the faucet and step into the tub as the welcoming water cascades down on you. Ahhhh~  Sighs emerge as the mud pools at your feet and is whisked down the drain.

In that same way, I also scrub away layers of mental muck and gunk. This morning, I asked for the water to carry away self doubt and fear thoughts, belief in lack and limitation, hesitation to take the necessary leaps into the life I desire.

When I stepped out and dried off with a vibrant red plush towel, I felt renewed, refreshed and revitalized and ready for my shower-empowered day!

Life Smoothie
In conversation with my flight attendant friend Jewelee Landis, about whom I have written many times over the years, we were musing about life being like a smoothie. She, like most of us, wears many hats.  Hers- wife, mom, daughter, granddaughter,  friend, doggy and kitty mom and now grandmom to n

What Does Your Facebook Page Say About You?
What did we ever do before the Phenom of Facebook?  It is where people turn for companionship and to relieve boredom. To learn what is happening in the world, without watching the news. It serves the purpose of entertainment and to gain a different perspective,  as well as to rally the troops for

For Me
I had a revelationary thought today as I recognized that for much of my adult life, I have done things for the benefit of others first and foremost, or to please someone so as to gain or not lose love and/or approval. Now, since the heart opening experience in June, I do more things for my own satis

The calendar has all kinds of quirky holidays and the block that is set aside for the second Tuesday in October is National Face Your Fears Day. This year, it occurs on October 14th.  Oh, that's today!  What if we really could do just that? What if we could look at what is an imposter, cleverly
