Cheryl Richardson > Tethered to the Sweetness of Life

Earlier in the week, while on my way to the grocery store (my big outing these days), I saw an elderly gentleman I haven’t seen since the beginning of the pandemic.

There are some days when I feel a sincere sense of weariness at the state of our world and I just want to find a small island in the middle of nowhere – one without internet or telephones – where I can fashion a small hut out of random sticks...

Cheryl Richardson > The Signals of Spring

It was 7am when I stood on the back deck breaking up ice in the birdbath so I could refill it with fresh water for the little creatures who come to visit. I then filled a new feeder with a special treat. 

Cheryl Richardson > Permission To Rest

Drizzling rain and blustery wind are making their presence known beyond my bedroom window. I left it open last night and this morning the room feels damp and raw.

Cheryl Richardson > What the Royal Tribe Has To Teach Us

Last week I watched the interview Oprah Winfrey conducted with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. I hadn’t intended to see it, but when a friend who didn’t have cable asked to watch it on our TV, I happily agreed so we could enjoy some time together.

Cheryl Richardson > The Exquisite Beauty of Ordinary Things

I just finished a zoom gathering with three girlfriends I’ve known for more than thirty years. We make a point of seeing each other now and then to reconnect and catch up on our lives.

Spring is in the air and I’m both excited and a little apprehensive. As the world starts to open up again, I wonder about the impact the global pandemic has and will continue to have on our lives.

Cheryl Richardson > Reasons to Smile :)

My friend Nanna introduced me to an interesting practice. She said she was taking note of the activities and experiences that made her smile so she could give them more space in her life.

Well that's an excellent idea, I thought to myself, so I started keeping track of what made me smile, too. It's a revealing exercise. Here's some of what I’ve discovered...

Cheryl Richardson > An Important Self-Care Reminder

Last year, I shared a note I wrote to myself when we first went into lockdown for the pandemic. I used it to stay focused on self-care when I felt stressed so I’d remain helpful to myself and others. 

Cheryl Richardson > Finding Certainty in Uncertain Times

This morning I woke up feeling like I’m stuck in the movie, Groundhog Day, repeating the same routines over and over again. I fed the cats, cleaned their litter boxes, refreshed their water, then went into the kitchen to make a cup of tea.
