Making My Bed…Mama Made Me©️

Understanding Morning Grief

Growing up it was instilled in me to immediately make my bed in the morning. The habit stuck and research shows doing this is very common among successful people.

After experiencing breast cancer, various other surgeries and what I dub, “The year of death,” getting out of the bed was the goal.

I was completely filled to the rim with anxiety. There was no room for self-love, passion or energy.

Depicted above is my cat just not feeling the bed making vibes either. Animals are so in-tune to human emotions.

My doctors described it as morning grief: an uncontrollable panic attack filled with debilitating tears the very second you open your eyes. I only told my doctors and two friends about the situation in which I found myself.

My psychologist asked that I try to do three simple things per day and progress from there on better days.

Getting out of bed was one. Making the bed was two. I was never quite sure what the third act would be.

Flash forward about one year, an amazing life coach gently opened my heart again and lessened the grief. I learned coping skills from her, a new way to think, felt love from key people and most importantly pulled it together for my children in college and my adoring pets. Someone has to walk the dog!

I’m proud to say that I don’t wake up hysterical anymore. I meditate every night and morning along with prayer. I make my bed even if there’s a big cat lump in the middle.

There are no words for the immense gratitude to the doctors, my amazing coach and friends who understood and pulled me through.

If you’re suffering in any way, reach out for help. Please know there are solutions. And when possible, it’s always good to make your bed.

Eternally blessed & grateful – Me ©️

Time Is A Unifying Gift©️

Celebrating the passage of time is my favorite “holiday.” This is a time in which most desire blessed memories of what has passed, welcome the best of times, and pray for more time.

Time: past, present and future. It’s not a religion, and it’s not a political view. Time is now and what we make of it. Time is what we have, can help heal and speed away unexpectedly. Treasure all the moments you’re offered by time.

Around the world, we collectively rejoice, love, kiss and pray. Time is treasured at this moment, as we treasure each other. Time is a gift. Celebrate it now and and every tick-tock you hear. 1-1-2019©️

Five Women Walk in A Bar

Five attractive ladies walk in the bar. Two are besties forever (ok). Two can’t stop gossiping about the other three in front of them (truth). One is drinking to kill the drama (oh yes).

My hope this new year and every year is friends will lift each other up instead of throwing each other overboard. I’ll never waste a vacation again.

My dream is for peace in this hostile world. I pray for a world where my children are safe, blessed, loved, respected, and supported by the best of friends especially if I’m not here. My vacations will be with them.

My goal is to create moments that will send me flying into a new phase of my life. I’ll surround myself with true love, real people, creative, thoughtful and positive people. I’ll write and sell more books, think out of the box, and build strength that no one can touch. I’ll plan awesome vacations. All work and no play is never good.

Wishing you great love, wonderful friends, and a healthy, prosperous New Year 2019.

Live, love, play! 2019 ©️
