February 14th, 2024

The Classic Yin Yang Symbol From Ancient China To Daily Boulder Appreciation The Yin Yang symbol has been used in Boulder and worldwide for millennia. The Yin Yang symbol, originating from ancient Chinese philosophy, embodies the concept of dualism, illustrating how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world.

Fresh Air on the Inside – Clearing Clutter

November 10th, 2023

Giving a little clearing to our living space frees up our vitality and energy to focus, Westside PM Team says it also allows us to relax and be creative in our home. You know, that basement room could be a really cool extra family space if only all the boxes of old stuff and random collections were gone, if only it could be cleaned out, perhaps enjoy a new piece of furniture or art work…  That office space that has become cluttered and chaotic… The sewing or craft room that was long ago overtaken by papers ‘to file later’ and now hosts the kitty litter box… It doesn’t... Read More

Entrepreneur – The Dirty Word That My Dad Hates

July 28th, 2023

A true entrepreneur is not just somebody who doesn’t like to work for others. It is somebody who has a burning desire to create new systems and build upon existing ones. An entrepreneur is always thinking of ways to improve everything they come in contact with. Successful entrepreneurs have a part of them that is extremely lazy. This laziness is what causes them to relentlessly think of new ways to make things easier on everybody. They are obsessive problem-solvers; they see every challenge as an opportunity to show people a better way of doing something. The typical office environment drives... Read More

Your Mental Armor is a positive attitude. Your attitude is the one thing you always have complete and total control over. Your attitude dictates your response to every situation.

Opportunities will find you because you are always looking up and looking forward.... Read More

Thinking it Real – how to use positive thought to create a life you love

June 26th, 2023

I’m passionate about sharing simple and powerful tools that make a positive difference in my life.  As I get ready to begin a more consistent daily affirmation practice, I have been thinking about the power of positive and intentional thought and how it is changing my whole outlook on life. Perhaps you’ll understand what I mean when I say that I used to think affirmations were a bit chintzy, a bit ‘Hallmark’?  The thought of repeating snappy little phrases to myself seemed superficial, and I felt pretty unconvinced that this would work for me. Living in Boulder, of... Read More

Flower Essences – Bringing back our connection to Nature

May 12th, 2023

Herbs, flowers and trees have all been used for healing for thousands of years. It was an English physician, Dr. Edward Bach, who developed a range of remedies made with the healing energies of flowering plants and trees in the 1930’s. His collection of 38 remedies have been used widely since then, and his technique for preparing them has been used by others to create essences from many other flowers. Bach was committed to creating a simple system of healing that anyone could learn to incorporate into their lives for everyday healing. They do not treat physical illness directly, but by restoring... Read More

The changing of the season – exploring the equinox

September 22nd, 2022

Yesterday I spent my morning amongst the flora and fauna of mountain land, tending a beautiful garden of wildflowers and native plants, herbs and roses.  As I spend more time working with the earth and the plants, I begin to feel the cycle of the seasons come alive in me. If you know me, you know I can’t resist a good metaphor, and a change of season is ripe with meaning for our own journey.  So, inspired by the nature of the season, I have been pondering a few questions. We are approaching the autumnal equinox, one of only two times in the year when day and night are of equal length.... Read More
