We honor all the Presidents who served and tried to serve well, but I have to admit,

I tend to be partial to Theodore Roosevelt as most folks are around here.  

Most people think of Teddy as the Rough Rider and Intrepid outdoorsman who feared little, but fear itself.  But that was who the boy became throughout his journey,  

As a child he had many difficulties to overcome in the way of health problems.

 He was very nearsighted, thus the signature glasses.  His asthma attacks are reported as suffocatingly bad on many instances, and the allergies wrecked havoc on his digestion.

 All of the above added up to a boy who was a wisp of a shadow, awkard, unmuscled and with the buck teeth, probably well bullied on several occasions.

And yet, he overcame all of the above to become the l arger than life man people adored, admired and were exhausted by! 

HIs struggles weren't limited to the physical realm.  Teddy was considered to have been Hypomanic, probably Bi-Polar and unsurpassed in energy by most everyone- with the exception of his daughter, Alice.  

Yet Teddy Roosevelt found, as many folks do, Nature is the savior of Wellness and salve of the soul.  

The moral of this story, is that it truly is amazing what goals a person can accomplish, even when there are significant obstacles to overcome-

When one sets their mind to it, and gets a bit of fresh air!

Carbs and Hurricanes: The perfect couple

Carbs and Hurricanes: The perfect couple

One of the interesting aspects of preparing for a hurricane is an (almost) overwhelming need to stock up on those carbohydrates.  It seems to be a pretty universal feeling from glances at the shopping carts and shelves around you.

Are You Feeling Friendly with Your Universe?

Are You Feeling Friendly with Your Universe?

This sounds like an odd question to be sure.  But it's actually more important for you to take the time and consider carefully.  

And after you've considered it, act accordingly on your answer!

You see social media marketing is ever more adept at giving you the Universe you want, at least in the digital sense.  But then that carries over into the 'real world' also.

No? Don't think so? 

When was the last time you asked another, 'did you see So&So's post on ... read that article on ...?

So yes, that digital manipulation has bled into your interaction offline and with the improvement to Facebook analytics, it will do so even more.  

You see, Facebook, Google, Windows are all wonderful.  Sure they've given us so much we had no idea we wanted.  They have broadened our horizons and shown us a treasure chest that could be ours at  a click-- but they have also shown us that which we pay the most attention to.  ie, conspiracy theories, hate crimes, the worst faces of politics and the baddest behavior by the stars.  

The latter information can lead you to believe that there is great evil afoot, and let's be clear- it does nothing to promote your Resiliency or Wellbeing. 

 This will be along election season for those of us in the United States.  So it's important we get friendly with our Universe and with each other.  We will never all agree with politic or policy, but we can find our way through this together. 

We'd love to hear your thoughts below! 


Need a little help with that?  We're here for you.  Just a click or call away!

Wishing You A Joyous Independence Day

Wishing You A Joyous Independence Day

I hope you celebrate your freedom with gusto today!

Will you embrace the freedom to be your Best Possible Self? 

Do you revel in the openness of possibility?

Are thinking of tomorrow’s exploration with a sense of exhilaration?

Have you celebrated and shared your discoveries so far?

If Not……

 When will you bring these cherished gifts to your life?

Will there be a day when you share these inner wonders of you with the world?

First You Will Have To…

Let go… Yes, you will have to let go of the idea that you are bound by others.

So often I hear clients say they have these goals and feel pulls in directions that they just can’t get to because of the others in their life.

You love your family and friends unconditionally, but if you don’t let them know YOU and YOUR DREAMS, how can they be of support?

Release Your Excuses

Of course you have commitments to your family.  Of course you want to be there for your friends. Of course you want to earn a living, be a good worker, a pillar of your community, an upstanding member of…..

Can You See Where This is Going?

How long is your list of HAVE TO’S?  When You Start Listing the Limitations You Have On You, Your Time, Your Life,

You Have Given Up Your Freedom

Your family didn’t take it, your career didn’t infringe on it, your community didn’t force it from you. (not legally anyway!) You gave it.  

I know,  I hear you.  What else were you supposed to do? Everyone around you has needs and it falls to you to fill them, some of them anyway.  More for this person, less often for that, but still it keeps happening. 

Realize Your Responsibility

Yes, You are responsible for the jail you have created because you kept quietly suffering and juggling the needs of others against your own.  Honey you’re getting nowhere but burned out like this.  

Realizing Your Personal Responsibility and where it lies doesn’t mean abandoning the people you love.  

It does mean you will have to spend some quality time with yourself.  Time figuring out what exactly are your values?  What do you wants?  What do you need for yourself and the others in your life. What strengths do you already have and how can you use those?  What are skills you might need to develop to be successful?  It means figuring out if you are willing to do all the things necessary, the easy and the hard. 

Accepting this isn’t losing, it means gaining ….. Freedom

When you accept that you alone are responsible for following your path.  You also realize you are responsible for the outcome of that path.  If in your heart you want to be an acrobat, but you value your family and you need to pay bills, yes that’s a tough one. Yet other people have don it.  Maybe there are ways to incorporate it into your life now. 

You don’t have to drop your family to run off and join the circus. Chances are, they know you have a dream or two.   Maybe they want to come with you! Maybe they’ve been ready, and are just waiting on you.  Waiting for you to finish that epic battle within yourself. 

What Does That Look Like?           Being Free ?
