If weight loss feels challenging to you, reflect on this quote by Marianne Williamson from her book, A Course in Weight Loss:
"The weight you are seeking to let go of was added to your consciousness before it was added to your body. Your body is merely a screen onto which is projected the nature of your thoughts. When the weight is gone from your consciousness, it will be gone from your physical experience."
Extra weight that has been on your body for a long time can feel like protective armor. Especially if you experienced childhood trauma, the weight may help you feel safe.
Instead of searching for the next fad diet, commit to looking deeper. As you heal the reasons for needing the weight, your heart will feel lighter and you will feel safer. And as you feel lighter and safer, your body feels safe to release the weight. It's all connected.
Focus on healing and your body will take care of itself. 💜 ... See MoreSee Less

My husband and I took our boat to Cuttyhunk this past weekend. It's a small island off the coast of Massachusetts. Quiet and peaceful. There's not much to do except take long walks and enjoy being in nature. I could have spent hours sitting and staring at this pond. I hope looking at this photo gives you a moment of calm, too.
Nature restores your mind, body and soul. Even if you live in the city, find a park or bike path to spend some time every week. Make the commitment to add nature to your self-care practice and you'll be amazed at how this feeds your soul and reduces your overall stress level.
And it's free. Affordable healthcare courtesy of Mother Earth. ... See MoreSee Less
I'm thrilled! Rhode Island finally passed a bill banning the use of hand-held car phones. In June 2018 it becomes law. Cell phone use while driving is one of my pet peeves. It annoys me to no end when I see the tops of people's heads instead of their faces while they're behind the wheel of a two-ton killing machine.
Distracted driving is a public health issue. Accidents and deaths have surged since more and more people are talking, texting, tweeting, Facebooking, etc., while driving.
I admit that when I first got my iPhone years ago, I was enamored by all the bells the whistles. I didn't use it while my car was moving—and I have blue tooth for calls—but in the beginning I would check emails or Facebook while at a red light. I'm not proud of that. And after too many people blared their horns to get me moving because I'd be looking down and not up at the light, I realized how ridiculous I was being and how dangerous it was to have my phone as a driving companion.
I quit cold turkey.
My phone stays in my purse when I'm driving. When I need to make or answer a call, blue tooth is my friend. Emails and texts wait until I get home or am safely parked.
Good self-care—and your mental and physical health—start with safety. And it's just not safe to keep your phone in your hand while driving. Your life—and the lives of others—depend on it. Remember... #itcanwait

Dawn WesenbergAt the risk of being accused of cynicism, it hasn't stopped the lower end of the evolutionary scale in British Columbia. More deaths are now attributed to distracted driving than drinking and driving. But it is a start. www.icbc.com/about-icbc/newsroom/Pages/2016Mar1.aspx2 weeks ago · 1

When you get caught up in relentless complaining about how hard it is to release weight, end emotional eating, save money, deal with your boss... or anything else, you've got to find a way to stop.
Complaining for a little while is fine. It helps release that energy from your body. BUT... when it continues and festers and becomes the only way you're thinking and speaking, you're making things worse. Much worse.
Firmly say to yourself, "Stop complaining about this!" Then ask for Divine help:
"Dear God, please restore my mind to peace and calm. Thank you."
Repeat often. ... See MoreSee Less
