Big Lessons Learned from Malaena

Malaena moved acros the country and included some great lessons of her own in a change-of-address email.  She generously agreed to share them with all of you:

I have learned:

  • People are there for you when you need it- but you need to be willing to ask!
  • Don’t wait until “the goodbye” to tell each other how you feel.
  • A clear vision, intentional patience with strong determination can clear away all obstacles from reaching your goal.
  • Two suitcases can carry everything you really need!  We all have way too much “stuff”.
  • Walking everywhere (no car yet) is not only great exercise but purposeful living.
  • After achieving your goals, leave space for dreaming the next ones.

 I may be far in miles, but I am still very close by and available by phone for work/life coaching, psychotherapy, spiritual counseling and Kabbalistic healing services.  Many of you have already experienced phone sessions to be just as rewarding and helpful as in-person sessions.  I also plan to integrate Skype into my sessions, for those who would enjoy the visual contact.

Eat now, repent later

Today I learned* that I can go ahead and eat the yummy sugary fatty treat, and it will taste just great, but that a few minutes later it will just feel bad.  Not regret-bad, but that-was-the-wrong-thing-for-me-bad. 

* I have “learned” this so many times that this just may not be the last time I’ll learn it before I … learn it.  So I’ll bookmark this entry and just point back to it, if needed.  Sheesh.

Turns out you can follow a blog via email

Today, I learned, from Gale who did it, that you can subscribe to this blog and get email updates when someone posts or comments.  I would like to tell you HOW she did that, but that will have to be an entry for another day, after I figure it out.  Or someone can comment here and tell us all.

(I am automatically subscribed already, so I think I’m not seeing the same option for subscribing)
