Would you love your body then? - Mar 5, 2010 - 9:38:09 AM

I saw Roger Ebert on Oprah this week. He has had thyroid cancer and has lost his jaw and his ability to speak and eat. It was very sad and also inspiring. Here he is the biggest movie critic, known for his voice and his opinion and it is taken away from him. When asked about how he looks, which is radically different then he used to look, his face is slightly disfigured, he said, “no one is perfect, I wish I had have learned his years and years ago“. He said he is very happy.

Also this week on Oprah, Jessica Simpson was interviewed talking about the horrible bashing she has taken because she gained a few pounds, speaking of the “mommy jeans” issue of the tabloids, she said she was extremely hurt by the criticism she received. She spoke about how hard it is for her to have the pressure of having the perfect body, and her own body image challenges...

All you need is Love and lots of Laughter - Feb 19, 2010 - 5:47:50 AM

I just completed the half marathon (Marathon Bahamas) with my team, the Ripped Chix in Nassau on Valentines Day.  It was a first for 3 out of 5 of us and a first for the token male on our team we call a “ Ripped Chuck”. Our team members came together last spring when a seed was planted to participate in the Conchman Sprint Triathlon in Freeport. With the exception of me, sports activities had played a minor role in the lives of our team members and certainly none had ever participated in a Triathlon. 
 
When I came to Freeport nearly a year ago I was looking to connect with like minded people and have some fun too. I had no idea what to expect moving from my busy life in Vancouver, and was completely open to any and all possibilities. Since I am not working here in Freeport, I have some time on my hands and  it was up to me to make connections and find the fun for myself...

Why is Change so darn Difficult?? - Feb 4, 2010 - 2:33:03 PM

Well it’s mid February and if you made any New Years resolution, it might be starting to slip from your memory.  Or it is so stuck in your mind that you are beating yourself up because you have not lived up to your commitment.  We make these resolutions because there is something we want to change, adjust or try something new. But what happens? We have the best intentions, we have great ideas, great passion at the time, and something happens as the days go by.  

One thing that happens with an idea is we pick something that is too big. The goal is too far away and too large for us to reach it, and in a world of instant gratification we want in a few weeks not a few months. We have to remember whatever it is that we are wanting to change has been there for years, it does not just transform in a week or two.  And what is it that we are really wanting from the change? Is it a fantasy of how we will feel with the change or the things that we will get?

What is the “ Hard Stuff” for? - Jan 13, 2010 - 12:52:47 PM

I was thinking about this question as I was still trying to recover from my Apple laptop being stolen from my suitcase traveling from Vancouver to Miami. I picked up my bag and knew with that sinking feeling that my bag was too light, and sure enough my lap top was gone!  I was very upset.  Then when doing a workout with my friends in Freeport today, we put our extra shirts on the side of the bushes where we were running back and forth and when we returned 5 minutes later they were gone. The hard part was the it was my NY City Marathon shirt, only available to anyone who actually can run 26.2 miles in one day and trained for 6 months to do that.  

I am still upset by the loss of my laptop, as it has many personal things on it, including pictures etc, and it will cost at least $1500 to replace, which I cannot do right now...

Having a Joyful Holiday Season - Dec 19, 2009 - 9:46:45 AM

As I was writing the title of this article I was thinking, well of course we will have a Joyful Season, isn’t that what all the songs are about? I happen to love Christmas music, I think my love for Christmas music is always because I want to feel that Joy, Peace and Magic that the songs are all about.  

What is it that sometimes prevents us from feeling these things during the holiday season and all year round?  

The holidays are a time to connect with family and friends. It is a time of giving, celebration, sharing food, forgiveness, and joy. That's quite a bit of pressure falling on one day or even one month. No wonder we get stressed and start to dread the very thing that we love.  Children, however,  seem to be able to feel the joy and magic.  What are the things that children do that we sometimes forget or let go of?

Living a life with Love and Fulfillment - Dec 7, 2009 - 3:26:02 PM

Lisa-Love-Web.jpg
How do we fully love our lives and extend love to those who are important to us? Do we have to be happy to be able to do that?

In our busy lives, we often do not find the time to ask ourselves, Am I living life to the fullest? Am I happy?  How can I love life more?  We may have thought about these things before but have not explored further.

How come? Are we afraid of the answer? Are we afraid of the work involved, the change that is involved?  

Let me suggest that you ponder that just for the next 5 minutes while you read this column and see what transpires...
