The Many Facets of Change

How do we get through the feelings of emptiness? ¬†Well, first we must figure out what it is that makes us feel that way. ¬†Is it a person that might not be there anymore? ¬†Is it a routine that was a part of every day and now is no longer on the schedule? ¬†Or maybe it might be something as simple as saying “hi” to a neighborhood pet that sat behind the fence and is now living indoors. ¬†What do all these have in common? ¬†Change.

The thing about change is that it has many meanings depending on how one looks at it. ¬†It can create an empty feeling. ¬†It can also be exciting and filled with possibilities. ¬†It can be sad and at the same time be better for whatever the situation may be. ¬†So to get through the empty period, we need to reflect on what it was, what we learned and where do we want to go from there. ¬†Knowing that, we start heading towards a new way of thinking. ¬†A new idea. ¬†A new path. ¬†A new routine. ¬†A new… change. ¬† ¬†TM ‚̧






Lessons Learned

Everything is a lesson if we let it be. ¬†The trick is to realize that it IS a learning and as we discover that with each lesson, we only get better and stronger. ¬†As the lesson becomes more clear, patience develops and a calmness within takes place. ¬†But we must be able to put our personal feelings aside to have an open mind to take in what we just learned. ¬†Try it. ¬†You’ll find a new understanding within. ¬†Namaste & Aloha… TM ‚̧

Look Clearly

Hello! ¬†Remember you? ¬†What? ¬†Tracy, what are you talking about? ¬†YOU. ¬†Remember YOU. ¬†Hmmm… okay, let me reword this…

When you first read my words, you thought I was gonna say, “remember me”, right? ¬†So it confused, just for a bit, until the words that you are looking at this very moment, and now it is clear.

Life is like that. ¬†We are currently living in a moment of thinking what we think it is, but then it isn’t and it’s a confusion, but just for a bit. ¬†Step back, remember YOU, and now it is clear. ¬†Make sense? ¬†Message for today. ¬†ūüôā

Namaste and Aloha Always ‚̧

A Map Can Help

It has been WAY to long since I’ve put my thoughts down on this blog. ¬†Time just runs away and next thing you know, just when I think I grabbed it by the tail, 7 months have gone by! ¬†There’s so much I want to say and a series I want to finish (Overall Wellness vs. Cancer) and yet… ahhhh life!

Has it been that way for you too? ¬†It feels very restless, or maybe the word I’m looking for is unrest? ¬†So much energy is off balance and leaning too far right or maybe too far left is making us all feel a bit wobbly.

I’m so glad that I’m writing this as the words that are popping up on my screen are giving not just you a reminder, but for me as well. ¬†What to do when life feels wobbly? ¬†Reflect, deep breath, give thanks, and remember where we are going.

So with that, I’m going outside to put my feet in the grass and feel the sunshine on my skin and try to remember where I put that road map… TM ‚̧

Letting Go…

img_3682The unlimited love and always giving nature of a Mother… where does the path take her when the breadcrumbs have been eaten or blown away? ¬†The years of perfecting the role of a lifetime… it was never really perfection, but a constant watching of the weather. ¬†Enjoying the sunshine on a clear day, and waiting for the storm to blow over and hoping for a rainbow the next. ¬†Like a sailor with his telescope watching the sea, hoping to get a read of where the wind will take his boat. ¬†Some arrive safely to shore, but not always.

Just when she thinks she’s¬†found the manual, or rather, written the manual, revisions come at a quick pace. ¬†Keeping up and trying not to fall behind, and yet… the hands holding onto the rope is slipping. ¬†Does she just let go? ¬†Maybe it’s time to let go. ¬†How much can the heart endure knowing that the rope is near the end? ¬†Time dwindles away with no rhyme or reason when a confusion is present.

Breathe. ¬†Take several… large… deep breaths… Think. ¬†The beautiful memories. ¬†A small hand holding a larger, safe hand. ¬†Showing the way… watching the weather together. ¬†Unlimited love… always giving… ¬†the path takes her to a lookout where she sees a rainbow over the horizon… TM ‚̧

Good Morning



The morning is breathing upon me with its freshness and glorious early bird view. ¬†Day life is waking up as the nocturnal beings are slowly fading into their cozy cocoons ready for their sunlit naps. ¬†My first cup of warmth has prepared¬†me to seek the challenges of the day and to this I say, “Bring it!”… smiling of course, because every morning brings a sense of a newness that can be of our choosing, and I choose to view it with a ray of sunshine surrounding my heart. ¬†I’d better go look for my sunglasses…
