Perfectionista

I am coming to recognize another persona that I am calling ‘Perfectionista’.  She is polished and professional, sweet, kind and caring, loving and compassionate, creative and fun, positive and intuitive, reliable and  responsible, intelligent and articulate. So, you might ask, “What’s wrong with […]

The One

  When I saw this meme shortly after awakening this morning, I came smack dab up against all of the expectations I have for myself. Many’s the day when I have held the mirror to my face and fully claimed […]

Multiple Streams

  I am a multi-faceted multi-tasker, like many who are reading this article. I call myself a professional hyphenate:  Writer-speaker-social worker- minister-radio host-social worker-therapist-addictions counselor- BLISS coach-editor-author-reiki master-PR Goddess (and the list is growing). I used to say that I […]

Locket

  As a double nickels (55 year old) menopausal woman, I have sometimes fallen prey to the memory blips and brain freezes that may characterize this stage of life. In the past, I had believed it was mythical. After all, […]

An Attytood of Grattytood

Since I’m from Philly, where people talk like that, I invite you to take time today to focus on  ‘grattytood’  (gratitude),because what we think about and thank about, we bring about. Grateful people are happier people who can be a […]

Change of Heart

Cardiac update since my last posting called Stay in My Heart:  Following a surprising diagnosis a week or so ago of a condition called LAFB which  are alphabet soup letters for Left Anterior Fascicular Blockage, I went to my primary […]

The Craft of Improvisation

Inspired by this as posted by art therapist and coach Jennifer Gildred on her Facebook page since it speaks volumes about the courage it takes to be visible Bill Murray  -on his acting teacher Del Close. “Well, he was a […]

Who Are You?

  The headline reminds me of the Who song I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?) I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?) C’mon tell me who are you? (Who are you? […]

Stretchy Heart

As usually happens, my friend Jacob Nordby has wise words to share, whether they come from his own vivid imagination or from the pen of another beloved writer such as A.A. Milne. When I saw this on his Facebook page, […]

World Kindness Week

  “This is my simple religion.  There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” -His Holiness the Dalai Lama   Did you know that […]

Madly In Love With Me

Even as I wrote the title for this Bliss Blog entry, I could feel the little twitches of  “What will people think if I declare that statement?”  That’s what tells me that Christine Arylo wrote this book for me and […]

Water of Life

  Saw this quote this morning from Dov Baron and it spoke to an experience I had yesterday that carries over into today.   “Alchemy: You are an alchemist when you can take that which cursed you and make it […]

FAITH

  I saw a question recently that asked what faith meant. For those of us raised in homes in which religion played a prominent role, as it did in my Jewish household, it called for an acceptance of what might […]

Message Music

  Music is soul nourishing and the month of November offers a reminder that there is a huge buffet of  delicious, yummy, delectable, fat, calorie and cholesterol free  musical options. It is deemed  Positive Music Month by an organization call  […]

Snow In Sedona

    Awoke this morning and gazed out the window to an unexpected scene. Not in  my own bed (that was expected), as I am in Arizona for the first time;  at the home of my friend Dianne Evans who […]

How Much Better Does It Get Than This?

                                                                                                                                     My friend Annette Kroninger shared a story that brilliantly illustrates the power of our thoughts. She had been in the presence of a woman who had the experience that follows. This woman was walking down the street and […]

Celebrate Your Life

What would it be like to be in a room filled with elevated energy, abuzz with conversation about world healing, life enhancing concepts?  Imagine connecting with kindred spirits from all corners and curves of the globe; a multi-cultural feast for […]

                                                                           “..life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”  So began the daily group email  from Neale Donald Walsch that I receieved this past Thursday morning. I think about that concept each day, as my eyes open to greet […]
