Getting ready to “LAUNCH” the message……Ladies, how do you fill your cup? How do you take care of yourself so you can take care of others?

The Big Ahavas Yisrael Women’s Project Event is fast approaching and I am praying that G-d blesses our efforts to decrease the distance between his children.

Please G-d, let the Loving Inner Parent speak kindly to all.

Please G-d, let us see how we have so much more in common than that which divides us.

Please G-d, let us learn to nurture Ourselves, so that our Cups are Full to Overflowing,  so we can pour and pour and serve and serve your children with big smiles and full hearts and the joy that can only come from being other centered.

Let these and all the other Self-Nurturance messages be received in open hearts.

Please G-d, one interaction at a time, let us merit to see real change in our homes, and in our community and in the world.

The time is now. Join us!

You’re worth it.

2013 is HERE!  Happy New Year!  Here’s to the possibilities! Here’s to new beginnings!

So much in life appears complex. And then we see a way to start. To ask a question about it. To get a foothold.  To Begin.

Don’t you love the freshness? The possibility? Me, too!

And to build on my enthusiasm for a brand new year, I am continuing my commitment to do Four New Things a Month.  That’s One a Week. Yowza!

I’ve been doing it for about nine months now, and it’s been, well, interesting. I have really gone outside my comfort zone a lot and I believe that the new experiences have me made younger and wiser!

Did I just say younger? Yes, I did.  Because in order to try new things, I’ve had to break through limiting mindsets, ask embarrassing questions, be willing to feel humiliated and be willing to be treated as a child by individuals more knowledgeable but younger than myself. So, instead of feeling ignorant, I reframed that experience and felt “younger.”

And I’ve definitely become “wiser.” Definitely.  Ask anyone who knew me last year. They’ll tell you. No moss growing over here.

Be More Healthy!  Let’s Do It Together!
