Changes for 2013 and My New Beautiful Website

Butterfly Movements 
This is the year of big changes. Most of us have  an uneasy relationship with change. We look forward to it and then hate it once it is happening. When my youngest daughter was 5 or 6,  I remember knowing that  the end of our vacation would be announced by very loud  temper tantrums. She hated the change. When I was in my twenties, I lived the hippie lifestyle and  I moved or traveled  every 6-12 months to a new location. I always felt very unsettled and never very safe.
So no matter how we handle change, this is a year for great shifts. We have all been feeling the tremendous, political, climatic,  and economic and emotional   changes  going on. It is hard to not feel them.  So what do we do to manage the changes.

What if?

What if everything that we thought that we wanted we did not really want. What if the things that we did not want we really wanted. What if everything was turned upside down.
We are so sure that we want extreme success and yet it comes with enormous exposure and responsibility. What if we  were always happy, what would we do when we become unhappy for the first time.What if every thing  that we encountered  in our lives, we had this tremendous ambivalence about.
