“Ms. Thomson?…Ms. Thomson?…” Deep sigh “Is she here?”
“Yes.” Panting from running by the seat of my pants. “Who’s asking?”
“It’s the year 2018…”
“Yes.” Slightly breathless.
“Yes, I’m here now!” Speaking louder. “I’m Ms. Thomson. Or you can call me Lisa—that’s what my friends call me” *smiles beatifically* (I like that word ‘beatific’—in both sound and meaning) Continue reading “2018, Here I Am”
Art journaling is a ‘thing’. Have you tried it yet? I first heard about it a few years ago and was intrigued. There are many ways to do it but pretty much only one reason; therapy. Specifically to mentally unwind, go wild, let go and unlock your creative juices and your emotions. Continue reading “Art Journaling Therapy”
Not long ago, the word Chakra was foreign to me. How did it come up? Well, the store I worked in sold jewelry including troll beads. (That’s how my bead addiction started). What do troll beads have to do with the Chakras? There is a troll bead to represent each Chakra. I remember Continue reading “Cheat Sheet On Chakra Healing”
#1000VoicesSpeak for Compassion today and on the 20th of every month. The subject this month? CONNECTION. We don’t always feel it. My first thought on this topic was how often I have felt disconnected but my constant connection has been nature. If you ever feel alone or lonely… Continue reading “Alone But Connected #1000Speak”
“Courage is found in unlikely places.”-J.R.R Tolkien
Two things you’ll need to make any major change in your life are a shot of courage and a slice of bravery. Actually, before you even begin to make the changes you’ll need to identify and admit to the necessity of that change. That’s where we especially need a shot of courage and that’s only the beginning. The rest is getting from here to where we want to be. Continue reading “A Shot Of Courage”
In honor of my 50th birthday…gulp…I’m sharing my humble list of 50 things I’ve learned in 50 years. Some things are funny. Some are things you’ll say “She’s just figured that out now?” Yes, I’m still figuring things out…so please have a read and a laugh.

From the archives one of my favorites and just in time for flesh baring clothes….
Hello, where have you been? That’s what you’ll be asking when you find her. I can’t think of a better time than post divorce, to get in touch with your inner sex goddess. She’s dying to get out! Finding her will be exciting, fun and rewarding. Embracing your sexuality means owning it. Dressing in clothes that feel and fit Continue reading “Finding Your Inner Sex Goddess”
An interesting topic I tackled over at DivorcedMoms today… Should or did you go back to your Maiden name after divorce? First, what’s in a name? This was famously answered by Shakespeare’s Juliet…”A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” I beg to differ, Juliet. We might be the very same person inside but changing our name can change our whole perception. Why else do actors and musicians take on a ‘stage name’? To empower themselves… Continue reading “Should You Take Your Name Back?”
One of the most startling changes during my divorce, was my perception of myself. That sounds strange but when I was married I was a good girl. I was a good wife. I understood my role and made the best of my marital life. I played by the rules. I fulfilled expectations as a soccer mom, school volunteer and as a friend and business wife. I wouldn’t call myself a trophy wife as that would suggest I spent many hours primping and looking Continue reading “Be The Bad Girl”
