    How Are You Feeling?

    How are you feeling? Seriously, how do you feel today? Be honest with yourself, how do you feel? If you want to keep feeling that way, keep doing what you are doing, but if you want to feel differently… A feeling is an emotional state or reaction. Feelings are neither good nor bad; they just are. All […]

    Just Say No

    Simplifying your schedule and the busyness of your day may be crucial in avoiding physical, mental and spiritual burnout.

    “Friendship with oneself is all-important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.” This is a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt. “Take my advice, I’m not using it.” This is an implied quote we hear from lots of people we meet, sometimes from me, and maybe even from you.

    Three Bangs and Inner Voice Pause

    This was part of my  journey one day a few years ago… I was doing what I love. I was riding my bike. Whether I’m indoors teaching SPINNING to a class of 30 people or outside on the road or a trail by myself, riding a bike is my passion. That day I was outside enjoying […]

    Good Morning. How was you night’s sleep? Did you sleep restfully? Did you toss and turn? Did you stare at the ceiling? Did you try to solve the world’s problems before going to sleep?

    Live and Let Live

    Are you strong?. It takes strength to practice acceptance of the lifestyle of other people, to accept others as they are, even when they choose a different way of life than we would choose. We must all live our own truth and allow others to do the same. I find it best to focus my energy […]

    One Day At A Time

    Do you place your energy in the mystery of future or the reality of today? I always find myself returning to the philosophy that teaches me to live one day at a time, one hour at a time or simply one moment at a time. Any challenge that stirs my fears, worries or anxieties is […]
