The Earth Spins Faster Inside My Bathtub Thursday, Jan 21 2010 


Really it does! I’m sure of it.

For many women, the bathtub is a refuge especially if they have kids. Even before I had kids there were times when I would come home from a hard day at work, grab a glass of wine, light up some candles and pour myself a hot bubble bath and then melt inside of it.

It seems that people know not to disturb people in the bathtub. When I had a room-mate, she would let me chill when she heard the tub running.. she knew the international signal for “I want so peace”. (The other symbol was the glass of wine I would pour before I even sat down after I walked in from work). The kids hear my bath and they know not to knock on the door (I can’t even get that for anything else in the bathroom!!)… the bath is a place for me to re-group.

How you may be unwittingly putting toxins in your body. Sunday, Dec 13 2009 


So many people are doing detoxes to cleanse their livers and colons and even detoxes to cleanse the estrogens out of their system. Then they change their eating habits to make sure they aren’t putting the toxins back in and they are even switching their household cleaning products to less toxic products.

How do I love Thee? Monday, Jul 20 2009 


Many times when people talk about love, it may invoke thoughts of romantic love; the light airy feeling one gets when they fall in love. It seems to be the love that we focus on most as we grow up. Often times it seems illusive to people, like they aren’t sure where to find it.

There are all sorts of love and many times people feel unloved especially by those close to them like family. (more…)

What is the Meaning of Menopause Friday, Jul 3 2009 


Over the course of our adult lives, women get somewhat attached to their cycle. It’s part of us; we operate our lives on this cycle. At some point this cycle changes and we know what it means for our bodies but what does it mean to our identity?

It reminds us of what power we hold.
