    The Past

    I enjoy visiting the past once in a while but I don’t want to live there. I am happiest when I live in Today. While we often learn by an occasional glance in to our past, we must remember it serves us no purpose to stare. Learn from the past, yes, prepare for the future, […]

    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. For many us, myself very much included, life is a seemingly series of never ending commitments.  Sometimes we have to “Just Say No, I need to rest.” While there is nothing inherently wrong with being busy, […]

    Be Good to Yourself First

    “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 […]

    I notice all too often that I need to smile more. Why? I FEEL better when I smile. It feels good for me to smile whether I’m alone or in the company of other people. I also find that when I’m smiling, I seem to meet more smiling people. Hmmm, I wonder why it works […]

    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? How about prepare for a meeting? Did sleep enough? Did you wake up naturally and refreshed or by an alarm and […]

    Good Pain

    Pain is often a prerequisite for physical and spiritual growth. If I search for easy days and avoid challenge,  I’ll never grow to be a stronger person. How do we gain physical strength? We challenge our bodies by inviting various forms of resistance, things that are uncomfortable, and sometimes even painful. Maybe we train our […]

    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 […]
