That “New Normal”….it’s getting easier. Finally.

“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And...

Are You Really Cutting the Turkey Like THAT???

I’m at my sister’s house for Thanksgiving and I immediately notice that the neighbor, Joe, is cutting the turkey the wrong way!  You know, horizontally, cutting down, not flat against the bone. Oh my G-d! The man accountable for cutting the turkey is a sergeant, so rather than openly object to the...

Navigating the New Normal this Holiday Season

When Noise Sounds Louder than the Whispers of Joy

For me, joy is sensitive to noise…the noise of the world. Thousands of stories and interactions come barreling toward us every day, vying for our attention. News stories about political strife,  devastating news about human beings being killed or becoming homeless from the endless reporting of natural disasters and all...

Giving Our Opinions Too Much Power

My friend called me out when we talked earlier this week. She said, “Maryl, when you tell me that you feel like you wasted your afternoon at the beach or that you’re feeling really A.D.D. about your day, then you are bagging on yourself–you know, making yourself wrong. Were you...

Did I tell you about the time I found myself in a Ponzi scheme???  

Not my most joyful moment! I think I figured out the fastest ways we give our power away.  It’s when there’s a “problem” and I point to the problem as the problem.   Stay with me here.  That problem could be a person, a place, a thing.  It could be a...
