Perfectly Imperfect Blog

Imperfect Blog is a title that has been on my mind for about a year now. I had slowed down in my blogging last summer because I caught myself caring more about sounding smart than sharing from my heart. I was more focused on where I could publish my article for the best visibility than [...]

How a Young Cancer Survivor Can Shift Our Perspective for the New Year

Happy New Year! I hope your first few days of 2017 have been blessed and contemplative. What went well? What would you do differently? What did you learn? What do you want to be true one year from now? Three years? What do we feel good about and where do we need to shift perspective? [...]

To Save a Mockingbird

Tis the season for nests and baby birds everywhere! We were fortunate when a finch family nested in the floral arrangement hanging on our front storm door. We had first row seats to all the action, and the lessons were abundant. I also had an encounter with a baby mockingbird who took a premature fall, [...]

The Norman Rockwell Illusion

Holidays are supposed to be a joy-filled, happy time with friends and family. Day after day of sparkling euphoria, right?! Don't we all long for the Norman Rockwell experience? What if after the timeless moments are captured, we showed each other what really goes on—the good, the bad and the ugly, and also the ordinary? [...]

A Reader Had Me in Tears

A few days ago, I received a private message from someone who purchased my new book, Finding the Gift: Daily Meditations for Mindfulness. I was just floored and with permission, have to share and comment. To protect anonymity, I will change certain details. Reader writes, "I ordered your book. I made it through the acknowledgments [...]

Never Given More Than We Can Handle Includes Our Potential

© We have all heard the phrase, “We are never given more than we can handle.” I have always applied that to difficult situations and tough times, but I recently heard the idea that it's also true for our talents, our potential, and thus, our destinies. In Nelson Mandela's famous inaugural speech, he [...]

Patience Learned from a Feather

Patience is a virtue and never more needed when chasing a feather! Yesterday while cleaning, I noticed a random, red feather had somehow landed on my finger. Without thinking, I threw it up in the air to shake it off me. When I realized I would have to pick it up again to throw it [...]

What the Buzzards Taught Me

Buzzard Metaphor: I just saw something I've never noticed before. (That happens a lot when I take the time to sit in nature without an agenda!) I am watching six or eight large birds. Buzzards maybe? When they fly, they rarely flap their wings. Mostly they glide! Buzzards use the wind in their favor. When [...]

My Spiritual Bike Ride On a walk early this morning, I saw a fascinating box on the curb (it's trash day). Partly because of curiosity and partly because I am a salvager, I like to see what my neighbors are throwing away. The box had a picture on it which looked to be some kind of [...]
