Mr. Know It All

Mr. Know It AllI suppose I should rewrite that as MRS. Know It All since I'm female, but you get the point....Can't tell me anything.  I got this.  I'm right.  I'll do it myself.  My way is better.Truth be told it gets exhausting.  Especially being right all the time.  It's interesting that folks with low self esteem fall in to this category, too.  Wouldn't expect that, would you?  The motivating factor is different, but the action is still the same.  One person is proving they're right, one is…See More

Why Ask Why?

Why Ask Why?Do I need to know WHY something happened?Do I need to know WHY I feel this way?Do I need to know WHY you did what you did?I’ve heard that those of us who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.  I get that.  This isn’t about turning a blind eye, though.  It’s about identifying how I feel.To me, spending time in the why is distracting me from my now.  Keeps me in the past, keeps me in blame, keeps me in judgment, keeps me trying to understand…None of those things contribute to a good…See More

DON'T LET GO

Don’t Let GoHang on!  Don’t let go! Fear of falling is a basic fear we come into the world with, and it apparently sticks with us throughout life.  And so we hang on for dear life, don’t we?  Even when it’s time to let go.Not everything needs to be held on to so tightly.  What are we afraid will happen if we let go?Aaaah…that’s an interesting question…Sometimes it’s about fear and sometimes fear has nothing to do with it.  We hang on out of habit.  We do what we know.  We do our “normal” and…See More

Feeling Alone

Valentine’s Day doesn’t help…You can relax.  Call off the search. They don’t exist.“You’re wrong!  She really loves me.”  “We’re best friends.”  “I can’t be…See More

Make My Day

Make My DayDon’cha love Dirty Harry movies?  Who can forget Eastwood’s grimace as he snarls at the bad guy, saying, “go ahead, punk….make my day.”Who or what “makes YOUR day?”When all the lights are green on the way to work…When I get the first cup of a pot of coffee…When the jeans zip up with no problem…When I discover I’m getting…See More

Better than Coffee?

Lots of folks need that caffeine jolt to even open their eyes.  This isn’t a coffee bash; I LOVE coffee!  And don’t get me started on coffee ice cream…one of the seven wonders of the world, in this girl’s opinion.This is about designing your day.  Setting your intention.  Before you get out of bed.  Before that first cup of joe.How…See More

Keeping Secrets

Can you keep a Secret?  There are many things that create hurting, and secrets rank right up there.“Don’t tell anyone.”“Don’t talk about it.” “No one wants to hear about your problems.”We sometimes confuse keeping a confidence with keeping a secret.  To me, there is a fine line there…a very fine line.   I don’t like either one,…See More

The Power of Pooh

The Power of PoohEckart Tolle wrote a popular book, The Power of Now.  Ram Dass espoused “Be Here Now” in his writings, as well.And now we have the great Wisdom Master himself saying it, too.That’s right.  Pooh.The power of now meets the power of Pooh.There’s no way I can begin to touch the genius of ANY of these three, so for once, I’m going to be silent and share with you the brilliant poignancy of Pooh.…See More

What's Your Net Worth?

Your Net WorthDo you know your net worth right now?  Can you give me an accurate assessment of all your fiscal assets?Bet you could at least “ballpark’ it…Well, I’m here to tell you your net worth might be quite substantial, but it doesn’t matter. That fancy car, big house, expensive clothing…doesn’t matter.What matters is your personal worth, your intrinsic value.Check that….what matters is your REALIZATION of your intrinsic value.What’s interesting here, and what’s unlike your paycheck, is…See More

I’m Addicted to Self Help

I’m Addicted to Self HelpSounds comical, doesn’t it?  “My name is Annie-Pat; I’m a self help-aholic.”  I mean how can one be addicted to something that’s supposed to HELP with addictions?Pretty easily.  I know, first-hand.ANYTHING can be an addiction, honestly. Take water.  Healthy, good for you.  Also can kill you.  You can literally drown yourself with over consumption. Or sex, eating, exercise…all great activities and all potential addictions, as well.Whatever is done to excess, to avoid…See More

That something that is WRONG with you is really what is RIGHT!

When you have a problem, there is not something wrong with you. When you cant orgasm how you expect to...When you gain a little weight...When you forget something important...When you are scatterbrained...When you snap at someone...When you burst into tears...When you stub your toe...Yes, you are having a problem. But your problem is not the problem. You problem is a symptom.Your body and your mind are working fine. It is not an accident. It is sending out smoke signals for help, saying, “Whoa…See More

Ready to Tame Your Inner Critic?

We often focus on nourishing our bodies, with fitness and nutritious food, and forget that to function at our optimal level and experience overall well-being, it is equally important to nourish our minds.Years ago I wasn’t doing either, and eventually I got stuck, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Physically, I had low energy; mentally, I was not growing; and emotionally, I was bored, resentful, and lost passion for life.Life became a monotonous routine. I got lost in playing “safe” and…See More

We need more woman up in here.

We need womanness in our daily lives-- as women. We all need that nurturing. Not only as women, but as humanity as a whole. This "feminine", needs to counterbalance the masculine.I will use words from the Feminine Power Course to describe principles of the feminine. Words like emotion, integrity, nurturing, relatedness, flow,…See More
