Come Here Often

Posted by on Nov 13, 2007 in Happiness, Rhonda's Reflections | Comments Off on Come Here Often

Welcome to the Center of Happiness. I hope you come here often. Become a part of an ongoing conversation about happiness. Life is an interesting journey, and here we can hold hands. On a daily basis (except when it’s not) you will find reflections and tidbits about happiness here and have the opportunity to share your own. And, by all means, invite your friends. Happiness is more contagious and fun when you travel together. After all… “I think the most revolutionary act a person can commit today is to be publicly happy.” ~~ Patch Adams, M.D., author of House...

Happy Feet

Posted by on Nov 6, 2007 in Happiness, Rhonda's Reflections, Websites Worth Wandering | Comments Off on Happy Feet

Dear Treasured Traveling Companions, I have always wanted to be one of those people who could who could think up really cool names for things, like a hair salon named “Curl Up and Dye”. I stumbled across a wonderful organization/website with an equally wonderful name, Soles4Souls.org, and even better, they offer an amazingly easy way to give. They have a simple mission: to impact as many lives as possible with the gift of shoes. We are partnering with charities and governments around the world to provide a basic (yet indispensable) gift that most of us take for granted. Whether...

Imagine Peace as the Light of Happiness

Posted by on Nov 4, 2007 in Happiness, Rhonda's Reflections | Comments Off on Imagine Peace as the Light of Happiness

Can you imagine happiness? Can you imagine a Circle of Peace? I was interviewed by Tina Carey on KGEM-TV in Monrovia, CA, recorded for an upcoming broadcast. It gave me the opportunity to explore with Tina and her viewers ideas about happiness, and the power of the Circle model of leadership as a way of providing and fostering key ingredients of happiness, connection and acknowledgment. With the afterthoughts of that conversation bubbling in me, I visited my computer this morning to attend to emails overdue. In my inbox I found that dear friend had sent me the invitation to visit:...

Easy Listening

Posted by on Oct 30, 2007 in Articles and Stories by Others, Rhonda's Reflections | Comments Off on Easy Listening

Rhonda’s reflections: Okay, okay. I know I’m supposed to promote myself on my blog about ons, filters and habits and how each of those aspects of the coaching process impact the results they are ngs and cars but no people. T: Had it been raining? P: Not sure – I guess it might have been. T: So there were puddles? P: I guess there could have been puddles. T: And, I’m just guessing here, might there have been fish in those puddles? P: Wow – I suppose there might have been… T: (triumphant) Ah ha! Just as I suspected – fish in the dreams! While most of...

Remarkable Lives, Remarkable Legacies:Women as Architects of Change

Posted by on Oct 27, 2007 in Events and Happenings, Happiness, Rhonda's Reflections | Comments Off on Remarkable Lives, Remarkable Legacies:Women as Architects of Change

Dear Treasured Traveling Companions, I am writing this from Southern California with ash still raining from the sky as a result of the devastating fires that surround me in Long Beach as I visit my three grandsons. To the north is Malibu, to the south is Orange County and San Diego, and to the east are the fires in Lake Arrowhead and the forests of San Bernardino County. The creepy orange glow of the sun struggles to be seen through the already too smoggy LA basin. How can there be happiness knowing tragedy haunts so many. And yet, if we are willing to see, positive things can emerge even...

Out On A Limb

Posted by on Aug 21, 2007 in Happiness, Rhonda's Reflections | 0 comments

Every day I get the spot-on email messages from T.U.T., Notes from the Universe. Seldom do my fingers reach for the delete button when they arrive. They always snap me awake before I completely nod back off into old familiar stuck spots. “Sweep the floor. Clean the slate. Pick a date. Window shop. Buy a few things. Go out on a limb. Rearrange the furniture. Pick some flowers. Take some time off. No, no. Not necessarily because the tipping point has been reached… But because this is how you reach it.” — TUT, Messages from the Universe, Andy Dooley Yesterday, even though...

I’m Back

Posted by on Aug 10, 2007 in Happiness, Rhonda's Reflections | 0 comments

Summer came and swept me off on a delicious two month mix of a little work and volumes of play and took me from the top, bottom and to both coasts of the United States. On paper it appeared that in between drinking in my grandsons and attending the U. S. Social Forum I would have plenty of time to hide away for writing and reflecting. I thought I would clarify what direction I wanted to head after over a year of having been devoted to being available to my toddler grand-nephew as he traveled his healing journey from cancer. I thought I could balance three grandsons, two grand-nephews, visits...

Will You Live Until You Die?

Posted by on May 9, 2007 in Happiness, Quotes, Rhonda's Reflections | 0 comments

Hello, Rhonda here. I am with my grandsons (and my two daughters) in Long Beach. These three little guys are ages five, 16 months and 18 months. What a joy they are, and how meaningful to me to know that they recognize me and see me as a safe place to land in this sometimes crazy world. By choosing to live every moment fully with them I am way behind in postings and other writing. Balance is illusive, especially since they sahred a cold with me,but, today I feel the inspiration and energy to share, and it’s nap time. For the past months I have been wearing an orange rubber prayer...

“Thank You’ would be enough…

Posted by on Apr 10, 2007 in Happiness, Quotes, Rhonda's Reflections | 0 comments

“If the only prayer you ever said was ‘Thank You’, that would be enough.” — Meister Eckhart Humble and authentic gratitude is indeed a powerful prayer. To be grateful for not only big things but for the simple blessings can carry us beyond challenging circumstances with a greater sense of contentment. One of the greatest heartaches we feel is a lack of acknowledgement. Too seldom are we fully appreciated for our contributions and not often enough do we appreciate the gifts of others sent our way. Yet, it is these simple gestures that grows true happiness and...

Alicia and Rhonda’s Updates about Connor

Posted by on Apr 5, 2007 in Articles and Stories by Others, Rhonda's Reflections | 0 comments

RHONDA’ S UPDATE Dear Ones, If this journey has taught me anything, it is that life can change in an instant. Don’t waste a moment harboring resentments or trapped by anger and frustration. Acknowledge those feeling fully or they will revisit, and then choose the quality you want for the next present moment, for it is all you truly have. That is the power of NOW. Alicia and Steve may feel cumbersome as they maneuver Connor’s path from fever-to-fever and from rash-to-feeding tube mishap, but indeed I see them being guided, willing to adapt to what is, and walking in grace....
