November 19th, 2018

It’s Thanksgiving week and as I sat down to write my Monday Motivation blog I could not help but think about how motivated the Pilgrims must have been in 1620 when they boarded the Mayflower.  They were seeking religious freedom and a new life in a new and unknown world.   Did they know what they were signing up for?  Did they know they might not make it there alive, or even survive once they arrived?  Yet their desire for freedom was greater than any challenge that they would face on this foreign journey. Some of them gave up before they even got going.  Originally, they were going to... Read More

November 17th, 2018

Thanksgiving is next week and there are several of us who will be shopping for foods this weekend, and all next week, leading up to the big day! We all know the classic casseroles, stuffings, and desserts, but have you considered adding hemp foods to your menu? For some, hemp foods can be new to cook with, and there isn’t a lot of direction for how to add hemp to your Thanksgiving, until now! Hemp foods are gaining popularity, and becoming much easier to find in stores. Hempsgiving was recently held in Denver, where every item on the menu featured some sort of hemp. The event was such a success,... Read More

Thanksgiving Yoga: Happy Selves, Happy Cells

November 24th, 2015

The cells in our bodies regenerate at different rates; in our hips, the cells completely regenerate about every seven years. As emotional centers, our hips store a lot of information including feelings, emotions, experiences, and relationships. Seven years. That’s seven years of family meetings. Seven Thanksgivings. Seven years of table time with family or friends. Take that how you will. This could be exciting or concerning news. No matter what the past seven years’ worth of cells in your hips might tell you, you’re always regenerating cells, so you can start creating happy emotional centers... Read More

Giving Thanks: Beauty Product Edition

November 22nd, 2014

A few weeks ago I found myself locked out of the house.  I’ll skip over the relevant details of my misguided faith in humanity, and my totally appropriately guided abhorrence for our odious HOA, and just say I was locked out. Thankfully the episode predated the absurd cold, but even so I realized how much I take for granted having a warm, safe, shelter to call home every day. I am very very lucky. So, having said that, please know that there are at least eight thousand things in life I’m thankful for that supersede what I’m about to write (such as learning the word “odious” from Gilmore... Read More
