Personal Life, Politics, and Pinot Blanc – “Yes” I say!

I have been pondering my personal life, politics, and Pinot Blanc… After all, aren’t they the same thing? ~ Just L (March 9, 2012)

I believe that every single event in life that happens is an opportunity to choose love over fear.” ~Oprah Winfrey


On January 1, 2015, I prayed, “May there only be things brought to me that I can say yes to. Move everything else that does not serve me well out of my way.”

Believing in God, this course I stayed…

A great expanse of happiness fills my heart today.

I realized…

The past year brought me a new love. A man’s man—made for me almost too perfectly. I would have never dreamed it this way.

As a writer and consultant, I appreciate the work I get to do and the brilliant people I get to work with everyday.

I have become so confident in my authenticity, abilities, my friendships, and grateful for the simple pleasures and great new adventures of each new day that the yammering of naysayers has faded away.

I’ve forgiven those who hurt me, stole from me, and lied to get by. Apparently I had more than enough to give anyway.

The heart swell I feel watching my adult children create their own path is more than I can say. Though their lives are changing, it is clear our special bond is here to stay.

Don’t ever let life’s trials steal your joy: “YES” I say!
