My New Mantra: “No Big Deal”

  Over Thanksgiving, while waiting for lights to turn green, I read an article by one of my good friends, Ari Moshe Wolfe, an evolutionary astrologist and intuitive guide. Though I usually find his writings profound, this particular one (read article here) struck me deeper than usual . The message, NBD: It’s No Big Deal. I’m what we might…

Losing Grip: The Sequel

Earlier in the day, I wrote out my feelings in Losing Grip. It’s short. I highly recommend you stop and read it first.   I ended it by saying, And I don’t want to fight anymore. I realize how this may have left many of you really unsure as to my intentions. And while I thought about…
