If You Always Do What You’ve Always Done…

If You Always Do What You’ve Always Done…

(Originally posted Oct 9, 2018) I was fortunate to have the opportunity to take part in an amazing yoga nidra instructor certification course over three weekends in the past four months. I felt some fear going into the course, during the first two of the three...

Fall In Love With Your Fears – Kyle Cease

(Originally posted Oct 9, 2018) I love this guy’s perspective - Kyle Cease (picture above taken from his Facebook page).  I find his ideas super inspiring and motivating.  I'm in the middle of his book, I Hope I Screw This Up, which is great, and I recently stumbled...

Did I Say The Right Thing?

Did I Say The Right Thing?

(Originally posted Oct 8, 2018) I used to spend a lot of time worrying: was I doing the right thing in that moment, or what should I do or say next so that others would think I was acceptable.  I overanalyzed every situation, and agonized over how I thought I appeared...

Hidden Gems

(Originally posted Sept 10, 2018) I’m thinking about how I have learned the value of (and continue to work on) shifting my perspective - from that of lack, to that of gratitude for what I have and abundance; from focus on issues and ruminating on situations of the...

Additional comments on the blog posts

On ‘To Each Their Own… Reservoir of Knowledge,’ commented by Kelly Vass, May 13, 2019:  Thank you Carla. I find your writing brings me back to the now. Always helpful and inspiring. I find you have a way of allowing grace in. 

On ‘Hidden Gems,’ commented by Helen, Oct 7, 2018:   Carla, I love this post. 🧡 It’s a beautiful reminder of how full and “enough” this present moment is. I find I’m totally lost (grasping) when focused on the past. I’m most often caught in panic & fear in anticipation of the future. This moment is where beauty and appreciation lives! It’s where I’m most happy! 😊

On ‘Joy or Disappointment: You Choose,’ commented by KGC, Aug 8, 2018:   Thank you — just the tonic I needed this evening, as I’m facing disappointment at things I’ve uncovered at work. They certainly aren’t going as expected, but it is an opportunity to make changes and improvements — and that feels so much better to focus on. You da’ best!!!
