Palm Springs Retreat

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss

Traditional Eclectic

Keep singing your song…

Let life take it’s course, but never stop singing your own song, and creating your own tune. Step to the beat of your own melody, rather than falling into the chorus of the mundane. Keep your dreams alive by following your own notes, and writing out a song you want to listen to and have played. The smart, successful, and the happy do what 90% of the population isn’t doing… so branch away and create your own way… write lyrics that keep you inspired, interested, and intrigued with what is happening in the present, and what is to come.

“Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.” - Rick Warren

It is so easy to get wrapped up in the thought process that the world revolves around “me”. There is nothing more respectful and as honorable as finding humility in yourself and start focusing on others. Think about the time that you spend on yourself, your drama, your complaining and your bragging and begin to fill that time by helping a friend through a hard time, taking a mental break on a hike or walk, or spreading positivity by doing a random act of kindness. Filling this time with gratitude will start to fill your life with happiness and the world with love. XX, The Golden Girls

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” - Melody Beattie

In a society of consumption, instant satisfaction, and mass marketing, we hear the voice of “more”… and become accustomed to acquisition. However, keep in mind that less is truly more.. and when we are satisfied in the present of now, with thanks in what we already have… we let go of “more” and find pleasure in the fullness of what is.

However, the key that allows you to enter the realm of complete fullness… is the act of giving gratitude for everything in life. Not just the good… but the shitty, the F*@$ed up, the loose screws, the annoyances, the dissatisfactions. This is where the golden tokens and joys of life are found… because these emotions and experiences of “bad” are not truly bad. They are lessons learned, they are guidance to the new, and they allow you to segway into GREAT. Everything happens for a reason, so give thanks for ALL. XX, The Golden Girls
