I just have to laugh! I mean, look at what is happening as this election draws near! We are only eight short weeks away from electing a new President and the parties have stirred up enough controversy to last another decade!
So here's my plan for this Fall. I've decided to not spend anymore of my creative energy on what I don't want. Moving forward, my goal is to only focus on the outcome I DO want to see in November. No matter what your desired political outcome is, it behooves each of us to concentrate our creative energy on the outcome we want rather than the distraction of the outome we couldn't possibly imagine happening.
Because this summer, I learned an essential lesson - that our lives are meant to be joyful. It is a controversial statement perhaps, but it's been a fun hypothesis to test. Studies show I'll be healthier for it too, so I plan to continue. And if I get to the end and discover otherwise, at least I've had some deep belly laughs, and hopefully spread some joy along the way.
Email me! I'd love to hear about what's making you laugh these days.
Enjoy the bloom, Stephanie

The Space between Lemons and Lemonade
"The world blooms in consciousness." - Brian Swimme
You know the saying, "when life hands you lemons, make lemonade". As a metaphor, it has helped many come to a place inside to deal with hardship. I have seen proof of this in my work where I frequently experience resourceful clients turning tough lemons into sweetness. And when one commits to making lemonade, an interesting transition occurs in the in-between state of no longer lemons and not yet lemonade. THIS is the fruitful state of possibility, and it can be too delicious to miss.
