Great expectations. That's the phrase I'm using these days to help me stay aligned with the experiences I most want to enjoy in life.

Cheryl Richardson > Be Excessively Gentle with Yourself.

I’m sitting here in my office, bathed in the cool light of winter. The winds are howling outside, lifting the powdery snow high in the air. Now and then I swear I see a dancing, white fairy, but she quickly disappears with the next strong gust.

It’s late January and our Christmas tree is still standing proud. This year, because of a delayed family party, the tree stayed up after the holidays and this week I’ve decided to keep it up indefinitely.

Cheryl Richardson > In Praise of The Ordinary

The New Year is off to an ordinary start in our house. Lounging in pajamas. Drinking tea. Staring out the window. Cleaning junk drawers. Taking long walks. Watching movies.

Rather than set new goals or make resolutions, I decided to build on what’s working already. Here are some of the guidelines I want to use in 2015.

Cheryl Richardson > Here’s The Sign You’ve Been Waiting For

There are some days when I need a reminder that there’s a grand design to life. That, in spite of pain and suffering and hardship, there’s a force for good at work in our lives.

Cheryl Richardson > How to see Resentment as an Invitation

Last week, while listening to a program about self-care coping strategies, I heard a therapist talk about what she recommends to clients who feel resentful – a harmful, debilitating state of mind.

This morning, while reflecting on my last unpleasant visit to a doctor, I wrote a letter in my journal as a way to work through my frustration. A letter I wish I could send to every ‘checked out’ healthcare provider.

Cheryl Richardson > Why You Need To Experience A Moment of Transcendence

This morning I had a beautiful experience.  I’d just finished watching TV when I decided to get up, put my teacup in the sink, and start the day.  I walked to the window to look out over the reservoir behind my home, and just as I did, I saw two white swans lift up off the water. 

I know life requires us to be present to everything – the success and sadness, the peace and pain.  Learning to be with all of our feelings is fertilizer for growth and healing.
