A Simple Gift: Greetings Celebrity


Passing forward this Simple Gift to inspire and encourage everyone on their naturally curious and creative P.L.A.Y. journey. 🙂


A NEW YEAR – 2020!  TIME TO CELEBRATE!


In an age where social media has created a new definition of celebrity I’d like to expand the idea even further and say that we are all celebrities.

Consider this, if we truly celebrated the presence of everyone we meet throughout our day wouldn’t that mean we would treat each of them as if they were a celebrity?

And if this were true wouldn’t it be a wonderful feeling to know that as you greet people throughout your day: loved ones, friends, neighbors, folks in the grocery store check-out line, and so on that you would be celebrating their existence through your smile, nod, or exchange of kind words? 🙂

Who knew if we simply celebrated our loved ones, everyone, then we would all be celebrities! 

Loving Kindness in the palm of your hand. Love rocks pass it on and celebrate!

Time to gather up your friends & family (celebrities all) and go out and P.L.A.Y. to celebrate this idea a little more!

Sending Smiles,

A Simple Gift: Compassion

A Simple Gift: Compassion

Finding the word compass in compassion means you know you are headed in the right direction. 🙂

Both self-compassion and compassion for others require that we simply put forth our ideas and requests and then let them unfold naturally without any attachment to the outcome or direction it may send us.

This can be applied to everyone’s journey: from parenting to corporate work, building a home to homeschooling, creating art to creating a family meal.

If we are able to be in P.L.A.Y. mode more often and simply be present with what is we are more likely to engage from a place of compassion and this will make all the difference in the journey which is the sum of our life experiences.

Joseph Campbell, known for his Hero’s Journey work, summed it up well in this quote from An Open Life

It has something to do with submitting rather than dominating. Surrender, submit. Have faith, trust in the mystery. That’s not easy. Surrendering one’s life to living in, and serving, the beauty of a mysterious world is a big step. . .The purpose of the journey is compassion.
