Challenging Me

Reclaiming Skinny Bones

I had an epiphany this morning, one of those out-of-the-blue moments that first took my breath away and then had me following the thought and the feelings  it brought up down a rabbit hole I didn’t know existed! I thought I’d share it here because it might ring a bell for you, and help you…

My Leap of Terror Faith

My Leap of Terror Faith I’m taking a huge leap of faith in myself this week, and I’m asking you to please hold my hand while I take it! This leap is necessary because my life changed suddenly two years ago after my husband was killed in a traffic accident. I felt I had to…

Vulnerability of Receiving

I’ve missed posting about The Receiving Project for a few days – I cleverly perforated my eardrum (blowing my nose, how embarrassment!) and haven’t been feeling up to blogging – I know, pathetic but there it is 🙂 But I’ve been reading Jo Anna’s daily emails and yes even noticing the gift in the perforation…

Too Busy To Notice Life’s Gifts

Today’s email from the Receiving Project’s Jo Anna said exactly that. “Oh good topic,” I thought, “I’ll definitely get into that!” Just as soon as I do some laundry, answer this email, update my facebook page, pin a couple of things on pinterest, email my followers, help one of my members with a tech problem,…

Notice What Happens Along The Way

Day Eight, Week 2 of the Receiving Project. I woke up buzzing with this creative energy I spoke about yesterday. I’m also aware that I’m feeling very pushed to write this accountability post every single day! And that the voice that’s starting to say “oh do it tonight, leave it now…” is an old one,…

How We Are Truly Cared For

Wow already – Day 6 of The Receiving Project! After yesterday’s lovely little windfall I’m still beaming and am really feeling the message of today’s email from Jo Anna – when we are open to receiving the gifts of the Universe, we are open to feeling how much we are loved, just because we exist.…

Looking at What We DON’T Have

Writing yesterday’s Receiving Project update I was struck about what a quiet day I’d had and how some people would see it as a boring day (and it was a cold rainy Saturday after all 🙂 )! I was just resolving to get more life into my life when Jo Anna’s Day 5 email popped…

Day 4 of The Receiving Project

Today’s focus, sent by the lovely Jo Anna in the daily Receiving Project reminder email, is being clear about what is really a gift. A gift feels light, joyful. If it feels heavy then it probably carries some level of obligation and it’s okay to say no. I think another way of saying this is…

The Receiving Project Day 3

Day 3 of the Receiving Project. This is about giving from the overflow – or, making sure your own tank is full so you have something to give. The first two days have been very good. I’m a lucky woman, so much good comes into my life that I never so much as nod to,…
