How are you, my friend?

I’m thinking of you and popping by with a quick hello and virtual hug for you.

I’m visiting my mom right now. This morning I was doing yoga in her living room and happened to glance up and out the window. I saw what you see in that photo up above: an amazing red sunrise as a backdrop to the barren and beautiful trees. 

It made me feel this sense of surprise joy. Like Life handed me a gift out of nowhere! 

Squawky Polly mind said, “Enough lollygagging. Get back to your yoga and workout.” 

Thankfully, I didn’t listen! 

I put on slippers and stepped out on the porch to bask in the quickly changing color of the sun rise. I took the time to photograph it, too. 

My Celebration Moment was that pause to take in the gift of nature and of sunrise. 

It sounds like a small thing. And it is. 

Yet, is also EVERYTHING. 

Our life and our feelings of aliveness happen in these “small” moments. 

Don’t let your silly Squawky Polly mind ever talk you out of taking a pause when something sparks you! 

Please, always treat yourself to moments of joy. Bask in them. Savor them. Capture them if you want! 


I am giving you permission to always take that pause to feel alive and curious. 


I send you love today, my friend. 

I send you a day that brings you surprise gifts, like my sunrise. 

You deserve joy. 

If you are having a hard time, try to look for a tiny pinprick of light — anything at all that brings you comfort. 

If you are energized and feeling good, reach out to someone who needs help and offer them a pinprick of goodness. 

We’re all in this together. 

Thanks for who you are and for your beautiful spirit. 

Seek celebration — even in the dark corners,
