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.

Cheryl Richardson > Learning to Live With Questions

Still in process and doing my best to make sense out of a senseless event, I’ve been sitting with the inner storm and its aftermath. I don’t know about you, but I’m tired. Exhausted, actually. And fed up. 

Cheryl Richardson > Stay Connected to the Sky

The best decision I made in 2020 was to meditate every day starting on January 1st. I kept a small journal by my bed and before going to sleep, I placed an “M” next to the date with a checkmark.

Cheryl Richardson > Go Gently Into the New Year

I woke just after 7am today to watch the sunrise, a wash of fiery red and orange fading to soft pinks and peaches on her ascent. I’ve grown to appreciate these daily rituals for the reliability and grounding they offer during unsteady times.

Cheryl Richardson > When a Bicycle Man Goes Viral

Well, winter has finally arrived here in our neck of the woods. Yesterday we had our first Nor’easter, and while the prediction was a foot of snow, we ended up with a couple of inches and I’m happy to enjoy that as a starter.

Cheryl Richardson > Finding Gratitude in Tough Times

There’s a memory I hang onto when times are hard and I find it difficult to feel grateful. I’m 24 years old standing in a bathroom no bigger than a linen closet, staring at my bloodshot eyes in a mirror.

Cheryl Richardson > Going for the Gold

For more years than I care to remember, I’ve celebrated my birthday by making a list of ten intentions for the upcoming year. It was a ritual inspired by my friend Jules back in my early twenties.
