Sleepless

Posted by on Apr 14, 2007 in Rhonda's Articles | 0 comments

“When I’m worried and I can’t sleep I count my blessing instead of sheep And I fall asleep, counting my blessings” — lyrics by Diana Kral Sleepless? Do you toss and turn with your mind flooded with things undone and worries that haunt you? Gratitude is the key. Focus your attention on the miracle of life by recounting all the things, big and small, that have gone well today (are you still breathing?) instead of recounting what you perceive to be your shortcomings. Let’s say that in any given day one hundred things happen, and ninety-nine go more or less...

Take Time To ‘Fill ‘Er Up’

Posted by on Mar 12, 2007 in Happiness, Rhonda's Articles | 0 comments

Have you ever been late for an appointment thinking there wasn’t enough time to stop for gas, only to sputter, cough, and run out along the way? You then spend three times as much time cursing at the side of the road waiting for help than it would have taken to stop and ‘fill up’. In our busy lives we operate by the myth that speed is a requirement for success. Although it is a perspective that elicits a gasp from hardcore overachievers, the real truth is that focus is more fruitful than speed. Often what appears to be speed is instead a refined art of spinning our wheels....

Even Here, Especially Here, Happiness Is Possible

Posted by on Sep 10, 2006 in Happiness, Rhonda's Articles | 0 comments

I spent the day on a detour. My grandnephew almost 2 1/2 is battling a healing journey. He has leukemia and will in days receive a bone marrow transplant that increases his survival prediction from 30% to 70%. Last May he was barely two with a full head of hair living in Alaska and today he sports a baldhead, no eyelashes or eyebrows. His spirit is immense!!!!!!! He is supposed to travel no further than 1 hour from the hospital. Even though I live 2 hours away on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington his parents, baby brother, and Connor ventured by ferry and car my way. They dared to break the...

A Massive Outbreak of Peace!

Posted by on Jul 24, 2006 in Happiness, Rhonda's Articles | 0 comments

New peacemakers have emerged in the 21st century. They’re not political leaders. They’re not savvy diplomats. They are not only famous rock stars and billionaires. They’re women and men like you and me. Together, holding hands and sensing the truth beyond circumstances, seeing beyond our limiting beliefs, we dare to remember our magnificence. Women reclaim our voices, and we invite the men in our lives to reconnect with their hearts. It is only together that we can manifest the balance and compassion needed and called for by love. Together, in this circle of connection, we...

Stretch, Jump, Laugh, Smile

It is a common complaint. Women often do not feel like they are enough. The world of personal growth tends to reinforce this false belief that life is a problem to be solved rather than a journey to be traveled. With the abundance of coaches and consultants, personal trainers, and advisors many women become dependant on seeking “help” to solve a “problem” when all the answers reside inside of us. Often the greatest problem is coming to the realization that we too easily fall into that trap of seeing life as the problem, rather than our own disconnect from who we...

Women Have Peace in the Palm of Our Hand

Posted by on Jul 21, 2006 in Especially for Women, Rhonda's Articles | 0 comments

Women see the big picture. It is our nature. Although when necessary we have adapted to linear thinking, we are designed to be multi-taskers, visionaries, and aware of a larger perspective for the greater good. Part of our journey is to build a new bridge between ‘Mars’ and ‘Venus’ by coloring outside the lines, stretching the rules. Women are called somehow to poke around until the new steps reveal a way for men and women to blend our experience, embrace and honor our differences, and unite our gifts in a mutually beneficial way. Without this leap of faith, peace...

It was another amazing week. Did you know that life isn’t fair? It often isn’t easy. It comes with challenges, pain, and setbacks. I have been reminded of this over and over again through the heartache faced by my niece and her family as they maneuver the unimaginable weight created by their 2 year-old son’s leukemia, and one of my dearest friends was held up at gunpoint, left alive but feeling her freedom and peace of mind were taken away along with her purse. The purse can be replaced. Fear is harder to extract. Can there really be happiness here? I still believe...
