We are all so busy living in our heads that we forget about this wonderful body we’ve been given that has and will do the most magnificent things. I know I’ve mentioned the mirror exercise before but to restate – stand in front of a mirror and look at your body. Familiarize yourself with who you are. Sometimes I’ll notice I’m stressed out and not sleeping or eating right and then I think about what I’m doing to my body that is trying to do its best keeping me healthy and vibrant (on a good day!) I also try to remember the awe of when I had my two daughters. Imagine a body pulling that off!! Isn’t that crazy?!? So – give yourself some time to feel yourself inside your glorious body.

Where do you see yourself in the future? Think about all of the potential realities ahead of you and be as dreamy as you can. Have you published that book you’ve wanted to write? Have you gotten that new car? Did you find that stay-at-home job so you can spend time with your kids? Think big!!

If you keep on clinging to who are you are right now you will miss the opportunity to meet that future, amazing version of yourself. Let go and see what happens!

Think about all of your life that lays behind you and all of the life you have ahead of you. Imagine the amazing things that can and will happen to you. Feel completely at peace knowing that time passes and wherever you are is passing, too. See if you can find some joy in where you are right now. If you are very happy where you stand right at this moment, give it all you’ve got. Let yourself go and really enjoy and know that everything is ok, just as it should be.

If you are able, spend a whole day just on you. You can either do it on the fly if you feel you really need it or you can plan ahead for it. Think about it as if you were taking out someone you love for the day. Ask yourself what you’d really love to do. Think of really decadent stuff. The only rule is that you keep the day full and only think about yourself. Being a mom, I’m almost always the last person I take care of. Just for one day make yourself your priority. Everything will be just as it is, don’t worry – the world won’t fall apart if you let it all go for a day.

What could you do? Some of the really decedent stuff I can think of would be a matinee, a day at the beach, waking around NY City, going to get my hair done, going on a hike or even just staying in and watching movies if it’s a rain day.

What are your most decedent things to do? Remember, it’s a date with yourself and try not to feel uncomfortable if you take yourself to the movies or out to lunch. Lots of people do things and dine on their own. Nothing to feel self-conscious about.

What did you do on your day? I’d love to post where you took yourself on your special day. Comment here or write to me at

Have fun!!!


This is an excerpt from my new book –

Tools for the Journey

Inspiration for Change

Most of the book deals with profound change in your life. No matter what size of the transformation you wish to begin, you first need to make room for a miracle to happen….

To make room for miracles you will need to create actual space in your life and in your self. There are things you might need to let go of on the road to growth. This might not be a person or a place. It might be as simple as losing a few pounds to feel self-confident. Maybe it means leaving a job to find a new one where you can showcase your talents and abilities.

Clearing out your physical space, your body and your mind, sends a signal to the universe that you are ready to receive joy and direction. Clearing out clutter inside and out literally creates clarity.

You have to actually create space in your being to accept new life. You have to let go of your own story to be able to write a new one. You will need to let go of limiting beliefs so you can replace them with true facts about your abilities and your power to create the life of your dreams. You have to surrender. You also need to clear yourself of energetic blocks so new life can flow through you.

How do you know a miracle when it happens? It makes you feel wonderful and excited and just completely in awe of how this amazing gift made it’s way to you. It’s relief in the time of stress, a moment of joy in the times of sadness, renewal and love and opportunity no matter where you stand.

Keep your eyes open and ENJOY!

I’d love to hear about YOUR miracle… you can comment here or email me at

Hi Everyone! This is just a reminder to laugh a little today. No matter what is going on in your life, take just a moment to remember something funny or watch a sitcom… It is actually good for your health, spirit and your mind.

“I believe that if people can get more laughter in their lives, they are a lot better off,” says Steve Wilson, MA, CSP, a psychologist and laugh therapist. “They might be healthier too.” Wow – can you imagine there is actually a title called “Laugh Therapist” ?!?! He’s on to something!

According to this article on, Laughter can benefit:

Blood flow, immune response, blood sugar levels, relaxation and sleep

Another time of year when we begin anew… School starts, summer ends for everyone… Wow, did that go fast! How are you embracing change? For today, identify one small change that you have been putting off that would improve your life. It could be a dietary change, cleaning out a drawer or pantry or getting a new hairstyle. Change can be scary but we need to realize that we change every day. Each day our bodies change, the weather changes, people change and we change. When you change and the world changes you keep the flow of life going. Think about one change that you know will make your life easier and happier that might even prompt other, significant changes in your life. Have fun with this!

Well, what a few weeks it has been! My Mother-in-Law was in intensive care at the hospital for a week and then staying with us for the past two weeks. As there are no coincidences, a big contract position I’d worked on ended at the beginning of July. Here I was wondering why this could happen when the economy is in such a flux. I have been enjoying my time this summer with my kids A LOT and might not get time like this for a while I could say that is a blessing all on its own. Because it’s unusual for me to have this kind of time on my hands, my mother came in to spend a week with myself and the kids. Wouldn’t you know, that week my Mother-in-Law falls ill and we need to rush to the emergency room one night and then cover our watches with her for the next few days. Well, what a “coincidence” that my mother was here that week to watch the kids while I went back and forth to the hospital. And, what an amazing “coincidence” that I wasn’t working full-time so that I could watch the kids since my Mother-in-Law has been our main caregiver. See that? Perfect example of looking for clues and… everything happens for a reason.
