And a mid-August hello to you!
It is Monday evening and Iâ€™ve spent some time today thinking about this coming Sunday when Iâ€™ll be privileged to share music at Harmony CafÃ© again. Only the second time, this still feels rather new and scary to me. And as I write that, I need to ask myself why? Why do I have any reservations? Writing songs and singing is what I do! In the same way, you may â€œdoâ€ cooking or perhaps you â€œdoâ€ painting. Maybe you â€œdoâ€ helping people by giving of your time.
Several years ago I heard a definition of humility that really supports how I want to show up in the world. Believing in humility â€œnew styleâ€ is what gave me the courage to say â€œyesâ€ to singing at Harmony CafÃ©. Iâ€™d like to share it with you as a reminder for me.
But before I share it, here is humility as I remember learning it early on:

Good Morning to you!
I found myself in a very “busy” mental state this morning as I sat to journal, do my “morning pages” as Julia Cameron calls them.

TRUST – (T)aking (R)isks (U)nder (S)tressful (T)imes Continue reading Playing with words
Happy Independence Day!
Here in northeast Wisconsin, we are experiencing the most amazing and glorious holiday weekend. In my personal definition, it is perfection! And on top of that, it is the weekend of celebrating freedom, independence, that sacred gift that we in America experience in a way that many in this world cannot.
Beyond the external freedoms, how does your spirit experience freedom? Are you truly free in the choices you make each day about what you will do, how you spend your time, what you believe, how you show up in the world? Do you take seriously each “minor” decision along life's way, knowing that it is the very essence of your life, the impact that you are privileged to have in this lifetime?
This month, consider a new way of looking at the phrase “How important is it, really?”
How Important It Is … Really!
May you cherish each and every freedom that is available to you this day!
