  1. But when reality calls, we have to find a way to get up, get through, and deal with seasonal depression or, more casually, those dreaded “holiday blues.

    • Julie Genovese

      YES so true! There’s a time when all that pj wearing permission, decompressing and detoxing has done some deep work and getting back into action is part of coping/healing the holiday blues or any kind of depression. There is always more love to give to ourselves whether we are curling under a quilt or getting out into the world. How our reality looks and unfolds is determined by our outlook. The down time shows me where I have forgotten consistent self-love, and the ways that I am self-defeating, in my own mind! Just that awareness means I can see the “problem” isn’t somewhere outside me, or out of my control. I can support myself from the inside, continue to heal, and continue to feel more and more fulfilled…. Take good care of you, always ❤

    As always your insights are spot on. I remember a landscape artist talking about how her yard was always the one who needed the most attention. Not surprising that, for a moment, you forgot to practice the self compassion you help your clients use and missed the signs of all or nothing thinking.

    Every time that I read your posts I keep my paws crossed that you will write another book. Please don’t feel pressure from me. I recently wrote Lin Manuel Miranda to thank him for his musicals and signed the card “anxiously awaiting your next musical.”

    You are not only a wise woman with such insightful guidance but a wonderful writer. Hugs and kisses. Bunky

      LIS! You’re de bomb! I was embarrassed to share this one, but I also figured it might help others who are embarrassed by their caca. You are so good to me to read and comment so generously. It means A LOT coming from you – your depth of knowledge, expertise and compassion in the area of psychological BS! You make me feel understood AND smart all at the same time :) THANK YOU.

  15. What an amazing column, thank you so much, Julie. Delicious reading. Every word so true – we are in the midst of abundance but somehow few can see the valuable gifts bestowed on us by generous Mother Nature.


    • Julie Genovese

      Thank you my Noisette-angel! We ARE surrounded by abundance and yet it is too easy, amidst our challenges and overwhelm, to feel poor in one area or another. It’s all an attitude shift and Mother Nature is the best helper in redirecting my focus toward the glorious gifts in the present moment. I don’t know how I forgot to mention that picking my weeds brings a miraculous mindfulness where I am rich with life. Mega hugs to you! xoxoxo

  16. Yea for the smooth-o-weeds! Good job Jul!

    • Julie Genovese

      Hahaha! I meant to include that! SO happy that you’re enjoying weeds in your morning smoothie/smooth-o-weed, too! THANKS Rob!
