What a perfect example of what LOVE looks like. Present, paying attention, compassionate, always available. Does love look like this your life? Do you express this kind of Love? We can always get better at it as we expand our awareness of what the quality of love looks, and acts, like.

April Balance – an oldie but goodie!


The balls were rolling all over the room as we all attempted to lie, bounce, stretch, dribble, and run with them.

It was something different to do on a Saturday morning, and it required lots of balance.

I compensated for it, and did well anyway. Once I realized that self abuse is just as horrible as abuse done by others, I began to uncover and eliminate the habit. Because that is what bad self-talk is; a habit and learned behavior. As destructive as that habit and behavior is, it is an accepted one, so I also had to give up any desire to feel a part of what others do.
