Here is the plain, strange truth: I’m resistant to pretty much everything. This includes, but is not limited to: things that are good for me, things that I want to do, things that I waited for, things that I chose, things that I planned, things that light […]

“Vacation was wonderful, but now it’s back to reality.”  “Lately, I just want to escape the real world and curl up with a book, in my jammies with my kitty.” “I’m having a challenge returning to reality after the glitter and glamour of the Burlesque Experience…” I’ve […]

Me? Stress-free? Can it be?

My name is Lisa and I am a recovering adrenaline junkie. I have spent a lifetime, decades, in a rush toward the ever-changing finish line, overloading, overextending, overwhelmed. That’s just the way I did life. I think I even made myself slightly late to everything so that […]

If It Feels Good…

If It Feels Good...

As I sit down to write this morning, the steady rhythm of a rain shower as my background music, I open wide my office French doors in order to take it in, to breathe in the sweet summer air and better hear the rain song, I think “this is […]

Be Satisfied AND Want More: There’s Room for Both

Be Satisfied AND Want More: There's Room for Both

Every time I think of “wanting it all”, I think of the petulant, spoiled-to-the-core brat of Willie Wonka fame, Veruca Salt. She’s an extreme example of wanting. Spoiled, recklessly self-absorbed, and we all know what happens to her. She faces her unfortunate demise when she falls down the […]

The Life-Affirming, Tantalizing, Divine Power of a Crush
