A post about Facebook, Elizabeth Gilbert, Trump, Refugees, my new friend, Esther, and being an American.

What do these all have in common?  I’ll get there in a minute. Let’s begin with Facebook.  I love Facebook.  Why?  Two words:  connection and inspiration.  Not only am I connected with family and friends who I don’t get to see as often as I would like, I am inspired daily by posts by amazing […]

Authenticity.  A collection of choices.  Show up.  Be real.  Be honest.  Let our true self be seen.  This is, by far, the best definition of authenticity that I have read in all my years of studying spirituality.  We have the choice of how we show up when we are living our lives. It is about […]

Happiness.  We all want to feel that emotion, right?  Sometimes it seems like we spend so much time figuring out what makes us happy.  On the yogic/spiritual path we learn about balance – the yin/yang of life (which is the symbolism of my logo).  We explore how to be comfortable with being sad and we recognize that […]

Ha, ha… if you were an Entourage follower – you’d be smilin’ right now.  I was reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin today and though I’m not a huge fan of the book, I did gain some insights as great take-aways, including this interesting tid-bit. Gretchen writes that in her research she discovered that […]

TIMBo Training and Wholehearted Living.

photo: Tracy Rodriguez Photography “Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness. It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough.

Be Who You Are!

Dr. Seuss said, “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” I’ve written about authenticity before and the topic came up again a couple of weeks ago during week one of the most recent Yoga & Wellness session that I am facilitating.  […]

What do we want for our children?

What do we want for our children? To be happy.  To give and receive love. To be well in body, mind & spirit. How to do this? Mindful Parenting. Instilling self-esteem and self-confidence. Being an excellent role model. And a whole lot ‘o love! Erik Erikson’s Psychosocial Stages of Development states when children are preschoolers, […]
