March, 2019 Newsletter

Hi, all-

Since March is the month of St. Patrick’s Day, I’ve been thinking about luck.  More specifically, I’ve been feeling the absence of luck lately.  My husband has had health issues recently that required hospitalization (he’s on the mend now), and I’ve been feeling overextended and stressed.   A friend reminded me that I need to take some of my own advice that I share on my website,, about de stressing and taking care of myself.  I realized that I have been neglecting my self care lately, and I feel it.  My signs of neglect and stress show up as back pain and tension, headaches, stomach issues and trouble concentrating and multi tasking.  These are all signs that my body is telling me to take a step back from my life and pay attention to what I need to do for myself.

If you are also neglecting yourself, please consider joining me at my weekend retreat April 26-28, 2019 in the beautiful mountains of Idyllwild, California.  I promise to have some great writing, sharing and creative activities designed to help us Flourish in Mind, Body and Spirit and live our best lives.  Best of all, you will have your own private bedroom and bathroom at the beautiful Creekstone Inn to rest and take a break from your everyday life of taking care of everyone else.  There are 2 spots open, and I’d love to have you join me!

I know I’m in need of a reminder to take care of myself before I can take care of others in my life.  How about you?  Are you feeling depleted?  Is it time for you to take a short break for yourself?  Please consider joining me in this beautiful mountain town where the pace is slow and the breeze is gentle and it is easier to take a breath and just be…

Won’t you consider joining me?
