Conscious Living

Kathleen LaRoche

As a woman in the 50+ age bracket, I have experienced generations of social change. From my childhood in the groovy 60’s, my adolescence in the 70’s (very cool) , my first round of college in Boston in the 80’s (amazing hair!), to meeting my husband, starting a small business, losing my Mom to cancer, and becoming a mother in the 90’s….well, I could go on, but I think you have the picture…I have experienced quite a lot of life! And, one thing that has been consistent throughout all of these years is my faith in humanity. Somehow, despite all of the challenges and sorrows, my heart is still young and happy. What is my secret? I will share it with you…My secret is not a secret at all…it is a simple practice of being present in each moment of life…of learning from mistakes, but not holding onto the past…of awareness of breath, body, emotion, thought…and of the vast potential within each of us for change. The change I am describing is energetic…as my experience has shown, when I allow for each moment to be as it is, I make space for the infinite potential of the experience to be in my awareness, clearing my mind of excess thought and memory so that I can access the highest and best idea-emotion-sensation available to me. I am not saying that I don’t get bogged down in ridiculousness on occasion (usually when hungry or tired), but I do experience the bliss of release and self acceptance (even when I am acting crazy). Because, it is, as Shakespeare so wisely shared, “All the world’s a stage, and we are only players”. Sooooo…my advice to you is to get up, get out, and get playing! Go have some fun…challenge yourself…discover your “edge”…live your life…What are you waiting for? There truly is no time like the present! Well, It’s 7:00am…time to get ready to hit the road…have a great day, Kathleen LaRoche, LMHC
