Archives 1/22- 1/28 2006-2009

It’s another great day -any day above ground is a good one. I’ve been distracted and preoccupied as of late but I’ve found a great new site that helps me dwell less on my grievances over silly things like snow (I do feel childish and petty) and to be more mindful. The site is an agent of change. I love the way she writes. She writes the way I feel so how come my words don’t come out as kindly as hers do? She’s definitely a model for me to emulate. For a sample, see When life asks more of you than it has before. And thanks to my friend Ann Katzen who told me about it.

As (nearly) every Friday, here’s this week’s entries from the archives. Hoping you enjoy a relaxing weekend.

    Kathleen, I love your writing. I think it’s clear, concise, witty, informative, constructive and very professional. I read your site for inspiration because you “do” and encourage others to “do” rather than “wish”.

  2. Hello there, snowing here too, unexpectedly…….I got your book and am enjoying/loving/soaking in every page. I have learned so much. There is so much to learn! I’m naturally curious so all is very interesting and helpful. I’ve read the whole thing and some parts over again already. This is the best, most interesting reference book ever. Thank you so much.
