Day 16 / Forgiveness and Children

Day 16 / Forgiveness and Children I’ve been pondering this one for several days. My first reaction is that I wouldn’t need to forgive my son – I’m the one who needs forgiveness. I think of all the things I didn’t do right in his life. I remember them keenly. Even little things like, one […]

Do Not Complain Reboot 32 Day 4

Do Not Complain Reboot 32 Day 4 – My life isn’t always stress-freeĀ . What I aim for, though, is to deal with those stressors in a way that preserves my health.

Starting my 10pm meditation – meditating on the beauty innate in every day :). And music, sweet music! #meditate
