"All human actions are motivated at their deepest level by one of two emotions - fear or love...Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, runs, hides, hoards, and harms. Love is the energy which expands, opens up, sends out, stays, reveals, shares, heals. Fear wraps our bodies in clothing, love allows us to stand naked. Fear clings to and clutches all that we have, love gives all that we have away. Fear holds close, love holds dear. Fear grasps, love lets go. Fear rankles, love soothes. Fear attacks, love amends." ~ Neale Donald Walsch

Today marks the one-year anniversary of my father’s passing, and I know that he would want me to inspire others to live from a place of love, not fear – just as he did for me.


"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time." - John Lubbock

Every Sunday in Spain it amazes me and warms my heart to see families and friends gather inside or out, enjoying each other's company, and actually sitting down to have a meal together. This week I share my experience of the European notion "Switch off Sundays" and how this S.O.S. has been life-changing for me and my family. You too can learn to de-stress from distress.


“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” - Sophia Loren
