What About This Being A Baby Boomer Thing?


I started a YouTube page this weekend - and was scanning YouTube for other boomer-related channels - not much there except quite a number of channels that talked about Boomers being the "entitled" generation, being spoiled, having it all - what to do with all your retirement wealth ... and it made me think - How …

Shades of Grief -Divorce


A week ago I alluded to my amicable divorce.   It still is, we are in agreement on all things and will be doing a no response/uncontested action.  Taking care of business.  It's a relief that my terms are not being questioned - though it's simply whats yours is yours, what's mine is mine.  But …

Hot Town … Summer In The City of Sacramento


Sacramento Summer is here .. with a vengeance.   It's been pretty unseasonable so far - running just slightly above moderate temperatures, or below averages.  Not so much for the next two weeks!  It looks like out of the next 10 days, we'll see 7 over 100 degrees. No rain in sight. ** All of …

The Dregs of Apartment Living and Differing Points Of View


My son texted me on his way to work yesterday afternoon.   "Everything has been stolen out of my car. Nice."  It was parked in a guest stall in our apartment complex. Unfortunately he had a few more boxes of belongings to bring into our apartment from our move.  Unfortunately it was a lot of …

A Sanctuary In The Midst of A Crazy Week


So our move into our little apartment last Sunday was, though a long day, pretty painless for my son and me.  All the pre-arranging went off well.  It helped that we were not in a situation where we had to be completely out of somewhere by a deadline. And husband, though on one hand, wanted …

Contentment, Clarity and Peace


I love what one of the earlier teachers of Buddhism said: “Do not believe what others tell you – not even the Buddha. See for yourself what brings contentment, clarity, and peace. That is the path for you to follow.”   I seem to have lost my way a bit ... needing to find my …

Dear Judgey McJudgerpants:


I could not have said it better! A must share and a must read!
Thank you to “The Beauty Of Being Boring”!

Kim Berube: Next Level Grow

I’m writing this letter as a reminder. 

Here are a few things you know to be true.

1) You spot it, you got it. It’s so much easier to pick out the flaws and imperfections of others. I’m not sure why you do it (habit? patterns? human nature?) but, I am reminding you that it isn’t the way you want to show up and live. You absolutely know that others are doing the best they can at any given moment – so, cut them some slack. Remember that you don’t like to be judged and that you choose to ‘give away’ all that you want to receive. And frankly, who says you’re doing it right?

Grant acceptance.
Be tolerant.
Overlook what you perceive.

And just meet people where they are.
It frees them.
And you.

2) If you judge people, you have no time to love them
