The Downside of Acceptance

downside-of-acceptance

Acceptance You’ve heard a lot of good things about acceptance. About how it can help bring peace, clarity, and less pain. How people who practice acceptance are happier, often more appreciative, and even sometimes healthier.

Looking Ahead With Lauren: Follow Your Arrow

I, like most of the world, tuned in to the Grammy’s the other night. While most people were obsessing over the power couple, Jay-Z and Beyonce, I was most inspired by two other females.

The world can be a pretty difficult place to navigate. It’s tempting to say that it’s tougher now than it has been in the past, but that’s probably not so true. People have felt bewildered by the things going on around them for eons – war, famine, disease, how to pick a good spouse – […]

Waiting

patience

Bling! I love when the light just turns on. Once intolerable, I actually enjoy waiting now; without judgement, expectation or worry. I just wait. These days, my greatest inspiration and deepest joy comes from practicing patience and the possibilities within the space of waiting. After 50 years of nudging and pushing, which by the way […]

A few weeks ago I had the good fortune to go on a deluxe Disney World vacation in Orlando, see the four major theme parks and stay at Old Key West Resort. It’s not surprising I had a magical time with great family memories of seeing my 11-year-old daughter soak and absorb it in. Like […]
