Instead of resolutions: a Permission Slip to Slip.

And the the giveaway winner is: Laura. Hugs to all who didn’t win this time, more chances coming soon. This post is dedicated to my beloved #ppdchat friends. I’ve been so consumed  with creating events and classes here in Ithaca, that I’ve been rather absent on twitter. I miss you all, I’ll be back soon….

Thursday, not Tuesday, UnGuilt Trip, Shiva Nata

Haloooo! Greetings from Portland Oregon, where I am currently having the most marvelous time studying playing at Havi’s Playground  (with the Havi of the Fluent Self Wheeee!), in the most nourishing course ever. You may have noticed that I’ve been hiding undercovers lately,  I’ve taken a digital silent retreat, because I’ve been having a hard time…

The PPD Kooky Jar

This is an old post, now new and improved, revisited for two reasons: one, my neck issues are making it hard to write new posts these days. But more importantly, I wrote this in November 2010, when my blog was still a baby. Chances are you’ve never seen this before, and kookys taste much better…

On Fighting the Pain in the Neck.

I’m in pain. Because my neck has been acting up. And because I’m getting old. I don’t like pain. Not one bit. And I’m a wuss. And I’m talking major pain. I mean, I’ve had neck and back pain before. This is a completely different order of magnitude. This is scary. My first inclination is to fight. Fight…

And I’m going to be 40?!?

Remember this? It’s almost as good as “I’ll have what she’s having.” And much closer to home. I remember being 32 and feeling like Sally felt about 40, despite the fact I was married to a wonderful man and was pregnant with my first child. And today, I’m exactly one month away from this dreaded…

Vows for Jax, and Welcome, James

Oh, Joy! Jaime, another #ppdchat friend (she tweets as @jamesandjax) is visiting us today. Jaime blogs about her journey through ppd and anxiety while balancing work and home. I’ve been writing and talking about my disarming anxiety process lately (part 1, part 2), and Jaime and I twitted back and forth about it, and voila, now she is here….

Of Course I am Anxious (part 2) + Wound-Licking Time Out

So, where were we?  In part 1, we talked about how to get ourselves off the hook and begin to stop feeling guilty for being anxious. And about disarming anxiety rather than fighting it.  And how this is scary, and very empowering. It was sort of a what’s-in-it-for-you kind of post. This one here is…

Of course I am anxious. How about you? (Part 1)

This post is about disarming anxiety with Permission-Based Healing. About meeting yourself where you are, and not making your going be any tougher than it has to be. It’s about how to bring Ease to What Is when what is hurts. This post is dedicated to my #ppdchat friends: Jamie, (@jamesandjax on twitter, she blogs…
