Previews from my book!

For everyone who has been asking about the publication status of my book, I wanted to thank you for your interest and excitement.  We are still in the final editing and presenting stages, but I wanted to give you a few “sneak peaks” of what to expect.  In the coming weeks, I will be posting excerpts and ideas from the book under the category of “Book Excerpts”.  Please let me know if you enjoy what is there!  Thanks for all your support.

My pants are too tight, but I can touch my toes!

Here comes another summer and I’m sure we have all made the resolution to fit into those too tight pants this year!  When you pull them out of the back corner of your closet, take a deep breath and ask yourself this – if they don’t fit, will the world explode?  We use the phrase “so what” in a rather flippant way to show our disregard or disinterest in in a certain topic, but why not take it at face value.  Challenge yourself this week to honestly ask “so what”?  And then be ready for the answer that your ego throws back at you.  Be honest – it is usually our ego, not our intuitive self, which drives us to ignore everything amazing about ourselves in favor of shining a spotlight on the things we hate about ourselves.  Can you touch your toes?  If you can, then celebrate!  Give yourself permission to be honest – not about what you want, but about why you want it. Then decide if you really want to wear those pants.  If you do, make it a conscious choice every day until you can.  If you don’t, “SO WHAT“?

Let’s be honest – We’re not all models, so let’s get over it and PARTY!

Oh, no – not another “feel good” blog about how to improve your self esteem!  Welcome to my blog of down-to-earth comments on real life.  I tend to say it how it is and have some experience to back it up; but I always write with a sense of humor and a liberal dose of understanding – because I’ve been-there; done-that!  I hope to share my experience and insights  into body image issues, diet and exercise rollercoasters, and overall life strategies for embracing and exploring the abundance of living a vibrant life, no matter who you are or what your circumstance!  So, if you’re ready to have a good time while you are being brutally honest with yourself, then this is the blog for you.  It might be a bumpy ride – so hang on tight!  Welcome to my world!
