Nature’s first law is order. Without order, you are cruising toward chaos. In chaos, you stifle or completely crush the amazing experience you are on this earth to have. I’m not self or professionally diagnosed OCD… far from it. Trust, there are disorganized piles and areas in our home. Also trust that I know those… Continue reading Organized.
Our little monster turned 8 this past week. He may be cruising into his senior years, but he hasn’t slowed down a bit! He runs his laps around the couch, often to evade me. He chews holes in the corners of the couch cushions. He’s still working on remodeling the molding between the living room… Continue reading Hoppy 8th Birthday Peanut!
I’m going to push you today. I was on a call with my coach on Friday and she presented us with an idea that has been swirling around my head ever since: Are you doing what you want or are you doing what you feel like? Follow me here… because those two things often aren’t… Continue reading Want & Feel
Don’t get me wrong—there’s lots of activity happening at headquarters but I do not feel busy. Last week, a dear friend posted a graphic on Facebook, prompting scrollers to describe her life using only GIFs. I have a GIF obsession, so of course I was into this. For this friend, I posted a Green Acres… Continue reading I’m Not Busy
I was on the phone with my dear friend D the other night and she passed a comment marveling about how much television I manage to watch, all while working a full-time job, managing a non-profit, running two businesses and sleeping 8-12 hours a night. I laughed… but it’s true. The secret is that I… Continue reading Keeping it Light
Summer Denise is a legend in her own mind. I go back to work Tuesday and by Wednesday afternoon, it will feel like we never left… but for the first time in my recollection, I really feel restored, renewed and rested. Yes, it is possible to have two months off from the day job and… Continue reading Back to Ms. B
A teacher friend once said to me that July is like a month of Saturdays and August is like a month of Sundays. Now, that way of thinking only fits if you subscribe to the paradigm that Sundays are days that should be part relaxation and part dread for Monday and the week to come.… Continue reading Eternal Summer
Adulting… you probably saw 10 memes about adulting already today. We laugh about it, sometimes lament about it… but adulting is what we are “supposed to” be doing (I write this just feet away from my guinea pigs, so at least we can say we have our own brands of adulting). Of the many things… Continue reading Adulting: Insurance?!
My coach’s coach says, “Your spiritual DNA is perfect.” He’s talking about you. And you. And every being. On that note, I’m thinking about instinct and acceptance. When Tater Tot was alive, he loved to snuggle, to dill eat and to rip up the living room carpet. He would tear out the fibers one by… Continue reading Instinct & Acceptance
Hoppy Mother’s Day! Enjoy this classic Mother’s Day story from the Believe In Bunnies archives… My mother never let me have pets other than betta fish. My betta Bonus lived 5 or 6 years and traveled back and forth from Connecticut to home on every college break. I was never much of an animal person… Continue reading Mother’s Day Tribute
