March 2020 Newsletter

Happy March!

In spite of the nasty weather March throws at us in the northeastern US, I look forward to this month.

First, it brings spring, technically at least, on the 20th this year. Second, no matter how much snow and ice Mother Nature throws at us now, it won’t last long. Third, at my house, not a single flower has bloomed, which means not a single flower has died. That might sound morbid, but when my crocuses die so early in the season, it reminds me just how quickly spring and then summer will pass. At this moment, with the ground still hard and bare, I know that nature’s most colorful beauty is still ahead–all of it–and I’m filled with anticipation. So, yes- Happy March!

I’m writing to tell you about some changes to my website

I added a menu tab: “Freebies!” On it, you’ll find the ten-minute guided meditation I initially offered to subscribers only. Now, anyone who clicks on that page can enjoy it. I shortened and streamlined the video a bit, so you may want to check it out again

And I have a new freebie for subscribers only–an Assertive Mantra “fun sheet,” designed especially for my fellow people-pleasers. If you need a nudge to find the confident, strong self within you, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to look it over. You can download it here. 

And as soon as I clear about eleventy-nine-thousand more IT hurdles, I’ll have it available for visitors when they subscribe via email. 

But you, my loyal peeps, who boost my every word with your love and support, you get it first. You always will.

Wishing you the best with the dregs of winter and the dreams of spring.
