This was all I could eek out of myself as I crossed the finish…Continue

What exactly is financial freedom? And who is the authority to tell us? Well, it's definitely not Meriam-Webster or any other dictionary because the term isn't found there. Wikipedia, Brittanica and other encyclopedias are equally clueless. So, who came up with the term anyway and how are we supposed to know what it means? And if we don't know what it means, then how are we supposed to attain it?
One of my goals on the challenge was to attain financial…Continue

I've discovered there is more than one "right" way to do things. Some people have a clear vision with specific end results in mind. Others are more laid back and live in the mystery and just do what feels right and are OK with whatever result is achieved. Perhaps they feel the outcome is then "meant to be" or maybe it's just a way to not be specific, overly goal…Continue

Today I decided to do only things that felt good. I sat by the fire, listened to classical music, read a book and just relaxed. I rested and mediated. Then I took the dog for a walk out in the snow. It was quiet, just starting to get dark outside and beautiful with everything covered in white. It felt…Continue

It looks like somehow I lost track of the days. Two days of writing are missing. Well, the only explanation I have is that it's been a whirlwind. I guess that's a good thing. Did Dorothy count the days on her journey? Did she ever sleep? I guess that makes me closer to the finish than I realized. I do want a spa day in the Emerald City though. Big time! (I need…Continue

Wow! Day 89 already. Today is cause for celebration as I recorded my first TV show today! It is important to celebrate the small stuff as well as our major accomplishments. I don't take anything for granted. Celebrating at the end of the challenge will be great but our achievements and even baby steps along the way are important, too. …Continue

Running around like a chicken with my head cut off! Crazy getting everything ready for the TV show taping tomorrow. The set doesn't look at all how I wanted it to and I may go to plan B, which is taping in my house. It's more me. Instead of a "Restoration of Spirit" studio show, it might become "At Home With Janet Kohl." We'll see. I'm still experimenting. My flower aficionado is coming through to help me with flowers to boost up the set!! I've got two great guests and I'm…Continue

As I look around me I see a floor covered in popcorn remnants, interspersed with dust bunnies. Cleaning has not been a huge priority in the last 87 days and may I suggest it never should be. Life is short. Why waste time cleaning? Where really does spotlessness get us? I'm starting to like eating 94% fat free popcorn and dried cranberries, too. However, I'd give myself a big box of chocolates and a nice Pinot Noir, if I didn't have to lose 5 pounds in the next two weeks and if I…Continue

It's time to change. One thing we can count on for sure is change. The seasons change, feelings change and people can change. I believe our mission and vision can change but can our destiny change? In the 70's the Brady Bunch sang, "When it's time to change, you've got to rearrange, who you are into what you're…Continue

Life can be a rose garden or hell on earth. Getting through the thorns of life gracefully can lead us to the glorious heart of the rose. The heart is where I want to reside. Staying tangled in the thorn
s would be too painful.
People and situations were challenging yesterday. I focused on the heart of the rose. I practiced more blessing and releasing. I sent those people and situations love and I woke up feeling filled with love. I released fear, doubt,…Continue

It's a race to the finish line. At the end of a race, runners usually "kick it" and run faster in order to finish strong. It's totally mental and a conscious decision to push yourself and work harder. Knowing the end is near makes it possible for that burst of energy to erupt because you know you won't need the energy afterwards. It's about attitude. As a runner, I…Continue

For some of us, surrendering and expecting a miracle can be the hardest part of our journey. It may be the rockiest part of the climb. Why? Because we have to let go of control and hope we don't slip and fall down hill. We just can't seem to trust the process. When we are conscious and aware of our true deeper desire and focus on the feeling we're trying to create,…Continue

What's the desire behind desire? Why do we want what we want? What do we think our missions, once accomplished will give us? What are we really looking for? How do we think it will make us feel? What experience are we looking for? And where is the desire ultimately coming from?…Continue

Earnest Hemingway once said, "All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence you know." I say, all you have to do is live your truth. Live the truest life you can. What does it take to get honest with ourselves? To get real? True enough to live our full potential? Our purpose?
Willingness. Willingness to resist denial and go…Continue
