Just a suggestion for practice:

Step 1:
Look for all the ways in your life that you are cared for and adored. When you check out from the grocery and are thanked for your patronage, that is being appreciated. When you pick up your child from school, daycare, or camp and they smile to see you, you are adored. When your husband compliments your newest culinary invention, you are loved and appreciated. Simply witnessing your value in day to day terms is tremendously soul-enriching.

Step 2:
See yourself as a person that is totally deserving of this love, care, and compassion. Each time that you hear a critical little inner voice that tells you that something is wrong with you or your circumstances, stop the voice in mid-whisper and insert very deliberately the following words: "I Am Adorable". No matter what the situation or trial, simply state to yourself that you are adorable and a treasure on earth. No trash-talk allowed!

If you try this for even a few days you likely will be amazed at what happens. What have you got to lose anyway.... you're adorable, right?

With adoration,


With gratitude for Kay Allenbaugh's Chocolate for a Woman's Soul that gave me the idea for this practice. This is such a lovely and inspiring anthology. I highly recommend it!

Sorry everyone. Yoga in the Park is cancelled today because of rain...

I look forward to seeing you in the Fall.

Here comes the sun...

If you live in the Pacific NW you know how much this means... the sun is here! Everyone has been in such a funk lately as we had an epic sort of cold and miserable winter/springtime. But today, the sun is out and people are smiling. I feel something thawing out inside of me and I wanted to blog again. I hope my inner sunshine is starting to come back to play for good now. I've really missed blogging and sharing and I hope to start catching up with all of my bloggy friends again too.

Sending out warm rays of love and hopefulness to you all,


Here's some sun for you ala the Beatles!
