Healing and the Two Sides of What If?

Annah Elizabeth Leave a Comment

Happy Thursday-Friday, Journeyer! Yesterday I received some equally sad and happy news: Hay House Publishing picked the three winners of their Denver workshop book proposal contest. The world is about to be inspired in magnificent new ways and these authors are about to embark on a fabulous new adventure! The disheartening bit is that The Five Facets Philosophy on Healing …

Journeyers, I’m so excited I could bust a gut! The final cover for Digging for the Light has been chosen. I know you’re going to love the image as much as I do! The first e-book proof is done and the print proof will be completed later this week! And, as if that weren’t enough excitement for one week, I …

Small Indulgences

There is a woman who sells jewelry at one of our local craft fairs every year. And each year I purchase a set or two for myself and as Christmas gifts for friends. And every single time I wear one of the pieces, as I did several times this week, I receive compliment after compliment. The name of her business? …

Loving the Skin I’m In

My week began with number five in the Soon-to-be-50 series of fun my mother’s been sending me.     She even managed to inject a little more humor into Warren’s birthday celebration! At the ugly (as in I can’t believe I’m up at this time of day!) hour of pre-dawn, there’s nothing that gives this Night Owl a Good-Morning-Pick-Me-Up like …

A New Lease on Life

Sometimes it’s just the littlest things that either bring us down or help build us back up… I spent my entire Saturday in a hormonal stupor. I wore a path between the bathroom, the kitchen, and my couch. When I wasn’t pacing, I sat with my computer on my lap, wandering back and forth between Facebook, my blog, and open …

On Leadership and Failure

This morning I’ve got Leadership on my mind. Last year I applied to speak at a local TEDx event. The TED organization, for those not familiar with them, is a group whose focus is centered around one central theme: “Ideas worth spreading.” I’ve been following TED and TEDx (locally branded TED enthusiasts groups) speeches for nearly six years now. One …

The 5 Ws of Thanks

What can we give thanks for? Two weeks ago today, the unthinkable happened. A seven-month-old died. In her sleep. The young mother had put her down for a nap. And hours later the twenty-year-old was being whisked from one authority to another. “You would think they could have at least waited to question her. It’s like they think she did …

The Space Between Luck and Misfortune

Annah Elizabeth 2 Comments

Well, fellow Journeyers, I’ve done it! After more hours than I wish to recognize, I have finally pieced together my first video. The idea came to me when I discovered Washington, DC’s TEDxWomen and their theme for this year’s conference. The Space Between… I immediately thought of my piece Finding Four-Leaf-Clover-Kind-of-Luck in Shit. And The Space Between Luck and Misfortunewas …
