Ronna Detrick’s post on women’s commerce, raising prices, and standing firm broke my heart way open, in the best possible way.
You need to try polenta fries. Seriously, when I was at Green Mountain at Fox Run these fries were discussed in fervent whispers usually reserved for only the MOST delicious foods on the planet. And then I had them myself. And then I fell, hook, line and sinker.
Needless to say, they are delicious.

What to do when you realize that you need to fire your doctor.
It all comes down to this: “I got to” vs. “I get to”
Do you know how to brag about yourself? I’m talking about, really, truly, shouting from the rooftops about all of the things that you’ve worked your hardest on? Please make this a habit, STAT.
This post about National Coming Out Day (which, ahem, was last week – FYI) was my absolute favorite. Also, in the spirit of National Coming Out Day – I’m gay, in case you hadn’t heard. Wink.
Do you ever find yourself wondering exactly how much is “OK” to want? As in, before people start calling you an arrogant, greedy wretch or whatever your inner mean girl says – this post is for you.
Hannah Marcotti’s latest post about community absolutely stokes the first in my heart that tends to cultivating a community of my very own. So much love:
Our community is not me talking/writing and you just listening. It is also me listening and hearing you back. It is the flow of our energy and the sharing of our gifts together. I set the table and you bring the wine. Community is shared purpose, goals and explorations. The communities I am part of are warm and cozy, sunshine through the windows warming us when we need it most, lifting and truth telling. Lots of truth telling.

This week’s installment is brought to you by the Body Loving Homework E-Course, because enrollment is in full swing for the next six days and I really hope that you check it out.

Write on the top of it -How I want to feel January 1st, 2013:
Get to writing.
Here’s the thing. You have approximately 3 months between today and January 1st, so now is the time to tuck into the habits, skills, new beliefs, and really! exciting! new! things! to get yourself ready to start off 2013 on a high note.
Popular in our society are:
- Tips and Tricks to get you through the holiday season without putting on a pound.
- Resolutions for how to start off January 1st with your best foot forward.
By my estimation, what we are lacking is a solid (and sane) dose of perspective. I’m certain you’ve got big dreams for 2013 - I know I do – and I’m also certain that you know that in order to be most present and excited and happy and on sure-footing to make those dreams a reality. Help yourself along the path by taking a moment today to think about the multitude of ways that you can ensure your own happiness and success by taking care of yourself now – not just during holiday parties or when navigating difficult familial situations or after the first of the new year.
I also want to extend an offer to each and every one of you:
