Making Time to Take Time

A longtime dream of mine has just been realized – to host(ess) a retreat for a few select women, where we could just BE – enjoy peaceful surroundings and each other’s company.  This past summer, in talking to a dear friend, who had the idea for a retreat, but not the place, we were able […]

Dream BIG

If there were ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, it is NOW.  Not for any grand cause, necessarily, but for something that tugs at your heart, something that’s your aspiration, something that’s your dream.

Feeling Guilty – Useless Emotion

It has been four months since I have posted a blog.  I have not been hibernating, even though the winter has been a bitter one. Life has been busy and good. Recently, a friend, who is a Life Coach mentioned that we need to eliminate the “shoulds” in our heads. The things we think we […]

Yes, […]


What is Personal Wellness to you?

Personal wellness can mean different things to different people. Someone asked me recently, “What if I was hoping that my book launch would go extremely well and that my new book would be wildly successful? Could that be considered personal wellness?”  Good question. I would (and did) say yes, for the simple reason that our […]

What would make a difference for you or someone you love?

Once upon a time, there was a hard-working, forty something, General Contractor in construction who had built, over 20 years, a very good life for himself and his family. He had 3 children and his wife had been a stay-at-home Mom for their entire childhood. They had a beautiful home, 2 cars, a cottage, a […]

Are you doing your bit for the environment?

When I started my business in 1995, raising environmental awareness and educating my fellow consumers on the dangers of the toxic chemicals found in common household products, (cleaners, laundry and dish detergents), personal care products (soaps, shampoos, toothpaste) and skin-care and cosmetics, (lotions to mascara and everything in  between), there was a lot more skepticism […]
