I am editing my bonus handbook, Tried & True Tricks and Tips To Be A Calmer Mom. This little booklet contains gems of support and encouragement that people who buy my book, The Mom Who Took Off On Her Motorcycle, will receive FREE.

One thing that dazzled me is this idea: Easy Does It works from the inside out.

So, calm thyself, dearie, and the people around you will calm down. You get quiet, they’ll get quieter. You catch your breath and center yourself, the kids and any wild ones whirling around you will feel your wave of serenity. They’ll catch it. They’ll ride that wave with you.

How to change your life? Remember:

Easy does it starts from the inside out. Everything, everything, everything starts from the inside out.

Almost everything…I was searching for what to say at a time of grief and ran out of words. Here’s a link to my article that appeared in The New York Times on October 13, 2012:

  1. Wonderful post, Diana, and I’m also still amazed and touched by your opinion piece to the NY Times. “When Words Do Not Suffice” is a gentle, real reminder of how hurtful a well intended sympathy can be (oh, the agony of comfort that actually feels like a prediction of doom!)

  2. Hokey Dinah, the New York Times? I’m impressed. I can see why your article was in the Times. Your writing is beautiful and touched me deeply!
