What an eventful month it’s been since I’ve written you last.  I enjoyed my visit with family earlier this month – which always leaves me a bit melancholy after all the fun and visiting is done. And this swing of emotions has carried through my month.

I was recently interviewed for the local newspapers and during the interview and after the interview, I knew I was very uncomfortable. So much so, I sent a couple of emails to the reporter about my unease and concerns, and I expressed these same concerns to the photographer when he came to take pictures. With each contact to the reporter, she kept assuring me she understood what I was saying by repeating back to me how she understood my beliefs and the services I offer. Much to my dismay, when the article came out there were complete inaccuracies, and quotes from me that I did not say.  In discussing this with various family members and friends, I heard a resounding message that reporters always slant stories to be what they want, and that you cannot trust the news to be 100% accurate.   My big lesson with this is to always trust my intuition. I felt the unease halfway through the interview and I should have stopped it right then and there. I always tell everyone, and I need to heed my own advice – to always listen to your body, your heart and your feelings.

This month I became a Certified Chios Master Trainer under the wonderful tutelage of Susan Robinson. Chios is a relatively new energy healing modality that works more in depth with the aura and chakras. This class taught me about myself along with the various Chios techniques!

My best friend is celebrating a milestone birthday this month – as will I later in the month.  So I searched some quotes on aging for my Musing section, and found some great words of inspiration along with some passages that brought a bit of humor to this whole ‘getting older’ genre.  As always, I wish you a month filled with joy, peace and happiness.

“A man’s age is something impressive, it sums up his life: maturity reached slowly and against many obstacles, illnesses cured, griefs and despairs overcome, and unconscious risks taken; maturity formed through so many desires, hopes, regrets, forgotten things, loves. A man’s age represents a fine cargo of experiences and memories.”  ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
