To all of the very special people who follow me, I am inordinately grateful for your friendship and support.  In considering how to share some of my other interests, I have decided to create a new site unlinked to this one.

My love and passion for baking, cooking, and creating my own recipes, has made me decide to expand my experiences with WordPress and the supportive community to a site totally dedicated to and for baking enthusiasts.

This location will continue to advocate and highlight on the critical need for and expansive power of Empathy.   Yet, not everyone wants to see both on the same blog.   There is nothing wrong with that; we are all multi-faceted with many emotions and interests.

So, if you would like to find me at a new site (in addition to this one) highlighting cooking and baking, please join me at Bubby Bakes     I would love to have your opinion and hope that it will be the right kind of move for some of you.  If it is not your cup of tea (cooking humor … drumroll) then please share the link with someone who might enjoy, partake,  and who I can have the pleasure to learn from as well.

Thank you, as ever, for your kindness and encouragement.  Please know that I send mine to you as well.


You are so welcome here!



courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me_jane austen.jpg

Every time you choose to stand up for yourself, you are enthusiastically living your life.  It is the absolute possession of your own mind to step forward, or hesitate, to improve how you feel and make the next best choice.  Each time you choose to show up, despite the pain, fear, and anxiety, you are enthusiastically encouraging yourself to keep going.

Enthusiasm doesn’t mean giggling at everything or punishing yourself if you don’t feel like smiling all the time.  Life has tumbles and struggles.  But, you can rise up because it is your choice and effort to do so.

Live your life to the best of your ability.  Show empathy and not cruelty.  Kindness and compassion increase the positive of life and make you feel better as you help others to do so.  Choosing to be enthusiastic in your life means that you are fully engaged in being sincere, honest, or vulnerable.

You are living enthusiastically each time you show yourself a good time or find the healing power of laughter.  Be proud of who you are and each step forward, even if you must step back a few times to get there.  Joy is your natural birthright and embrace it when you can.

Be enthusiastic in caring for yourself as much as you care for others.  Choose to make yourself a priority and, no matter what you face, remember how strong and brave you are no matter what you choose to take on.
