Follow the Fear September 24 2020

Follow the Fear   This is some of the best advice I ever received.  I am not talking about the fear around life threatening situations, but the healthy fear or hesitation around things that challenge you, your beliefs, habits, or practices.  I have actually begun to develop a new hobby that has me practicing this on a regular basis, mountain biking.  For anyone who knows me well, they know that...

Running Free August 27 2020

  Last full marathon I completed in Comfort, Texas I have been a runner for 17 years.  Sixteen of those years I have completed at least one half or full marathon.  I have run miles in every city I have visited in blistering heat, rain, and snow.  I have run with any friend who has been around me much, usually convincing them to do a half marathon at some point....

5 ways to fitness August 20 2020

  Me and my fit friend Wolvarine. ;) Exercise.  We just breezed by that one in the last chat about immunity.  Didn't think I was going to leave it there did you?     Exercise is not just part of my life, it is part of my lifestyle.  Most of my recreational activities revolve around exercise (apart from visiting Harry Potter land of course).  This did not happen overnight.  This...

Hearing the Silence August 13 2020

A brief overview of how we can boost our immunity and bring more wellness to our lives.

Sunny Side of Things May 07 2020

  Fantastic view from a solo trail run in San Clemente, CA a few years back.   As yet another follow-up to the discussion around what has been keeping me healthy and happy lately, I decided to do a little reading around getting some sun in your life.  I feel there is some fear around going outside right now.  Our immunity suffers with fear, so let’s educate ourselves as to...

Greatness in Gratitude April 23 2020

  We all have heard of a gratitude practice by now but I ran across an article that discusses how it can positively impact your immunity.  Fear seems to be all around us, whether it be in the form of anxiety, stress, ugliness towards others, haste or otherwise.  This article does a great job of giving a simple explanation of how changing fear to gratitude can benefit us physically.  I...

Stronger Self II April 17 2020

With time on my side, I have been able to reflect on how my mood is changing the past few weeks.  Strength is awareness, understanding yourself and how your habits and environment are affecting you.  I have made an effort to pinpoint what things are missing on the days where I do not feel as positive, energized and motivated.  This is what I have found:   I must ELEVATE my...

Building a Stronger Self April 02 2020

Right now many of us have time on our hands.  I began thinking, rather than allowing our minds to worry about a future we cannot see nor control, why don’t we spend this time creating a stronger self?   I am realizing very quickly what is good for me, both mentally and physically. I like many, have been feeling anxiety and am doing everything I can to rid myself of this...

Wellness Staples March 09 2020

  Making all these medical alert bracelets has gotten me thinking about wellness.  Whether we are dealing with a chronic condition or not, wellness is an area of life that is not only getting more and more attention but constantly changing.  I have found that the concept of "healthy" has evolved for me over the years.  What I thought was healthy 10 years ago is not the approach that I...

Allowing: a daily practice November 15 2019

Not too long ago I started my day with an early morning swim that would be followed with a late morning coffee and coworking session.  My day began and relatively well, I was able to take my time get my swim done and head back home while listening to my latest inspirational speaker, David Bayer.  While figuring out the days outfit, the thought occurred to me to ride my bike...

Trending with Tassels November 07 2019

I have seen an abundance of tasseled jewelry from the traditional mala necklace to the bodacious multi-tasseled earring which although are cute, never really spoke to me.  But, while paging through one of my supplier’s catalogues I spotted the world’s tiniest tassels.  If you know me, you know I LOVE ALL THINGS TINY.  Consequently, Thought Blossoms launched into the tassel trend.  After a little research on the tassel I came...

Here come the holidays! November 05 2019

Now that it is November, I feel safe speaking openly about the holidays!  Yep, they are upon us and I don’t know about you, but I am planning on getting all my preparations done by end of month.  Ambitious yes, but in years past when I have not made a plan as such I have ended up at the last place anyone wants to be day before Christmas, the MALL....
