Happy 2020 and what IF…

Hello Friends, I took a bit of a hiatus but am glad to be back. I hope you enjoyed your holidays and have had a great start to 2020. For me 2019 was a year of many changes and new adventures. In 2020 I am reinventing myself and my intention is to experience more peace and joy as I stumble along figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. I've found that as I follow what makes me feel good things seem to work out in my favor; even if hard work is involved - I enjoy [...]

In spite of yourself, still rise and lead

Hello Friends, Where would we be without rebellions and revolutions, right?! But... these days we have many rebels without a cause, people walking around carrying past traumas ready to unload their anger or grief on unsuspecting others who cross their paths. This is why we are all called to lead by example in all areas of our lives, you know, what Gandhi said: "You must be the change you want to see in the world." I'd like to propose that the rebellion most needed at this time is one against our own fears. Fears that come in the form of [...]

Harness the power of your mind

Hello Friends, As we approach Thanksgiving, I was pondering: what am I most grateful for this past year? I am most grateful for a sound mind that I am learning to control in my favor, as opposed to allowing any thought that passes through to scare me silly or disturb my peace. This is no easy feat, it takes concerted effort to renew your mind as we are filled with counterproductive messages received in childhood and bombarded with manipulative messages from our culture and the media. But it's SO worth it! We have millions of thoughts running through our minds [...]

A little willingness goes a long way

Hello Friends, Trying new things and change can feel difficult or down right wrong; but, that's only the 'creature of habit' within protesting and being fearful. Anytime we are confronted with something new our mind searches our past history and when it comes back with nothing, it's first response is: 'no way, we have no information on this and it could be dangerous'! Fear not friends, this is where a little willingness comes in handy. willing 1 : inclined or favorably disposed in mind; 2 : prompt to act or respond; 3 : done, borne, or accepted by choice or without [...]

Mel’s 2¢ now on YouTube and trying new things

Hello Friends, Mel's Two Cents is on YouTube! Now you can join me as I talk about blog topics, interview fellow entrepreneurs in the healing arts and answer viewer questions. For quite some time I was being encouraged by many to start a YouTube channel, and I've finally done it. Not only did I start the channel but on the first episode I am actually doing a horse therapy session with Laura Higgins from Tranquility Ranch Equine Assisted Therapy, LLC - talk about trying new things and putting myself out there! LOL I was nervous and worried about looking foolish [...]

Practice speaking and living your truth

Hello Friends, We are taught from a very young age to hide our true feelings - be nice, be polite, don't cry, it's not OK to show anger, etc. We walk around wearing masks all the time, afraid to be authentic, afraid of rejection or retaliation, afraid to be an outcast. It's not that we're out there lying, we're simply hiding, or holding back, our true feelings and desires. Then we wonder why we're not happy and not getting what we really want. As I was contemplating this, I decided to try something different: to speak and live my truth [...]

Embracing and sharing your fabulousness

Hello Friends, I don't have anything really insightful or profound to share today, just a friendly public service announcement: I am fabulous and so are you! That's right I said that and I mean it! We are unique individuals with unique talents. These talents do not have to coincide with work or career, although for some it does. It can be a hobby or a helpful habit. It's that thing you do that people always come to you for advice about, or to fix for them, or because they admire you and want to learn from you. It's the thing [...]

Embracing stillness and silence

Hello Friends, We're so busy these days juggling home, family, friends, careers, and unforeseen events a.k.a. WTF moments, that we often find ourselves reaching for something to calm us down, give us a boost of energy or help us get some clarity. The quickest and healthiest way I've found is to be still and get quiet for a few minutes at a time throughout the day. I simply find a spot where I can be alone, close my eyes, take some deep breaths and go to my happy place. Amazingly, I quickly feel calmer, my mind is clearer and I [...]
