Texas, part 1 of 7: Wide open spaces, big hearts, what a great trip!

Do I sound like a broken record when I come back from a speaking tour and tell you how in love I am with my job? My job where I get to hear people tell about their SUCCESS, achieved through simple but true principles, applied consistently? And those who haven’t yet achieved a miracle, I […]

Nutrition and single parents….part 3 of 3

Thank you, single parents who commented on my two-part blog series a couple of weeks ago. I’m quoting Amanda from that blog series because what she said merits front-and-center attention: “Robyn, I know what you’re going through, and thanks so much for writing on this critical topic! There’s very little information online about how to […]

Are you fixing the plumbing in your cottage? or building a mansion? part 1 of 2

My high-school junior son’s photo is on the front page of Sports, rubbing the snow of the baseball before he pitches it on Tuesday. Brrr! And then the next day, I’m skiing in a t-shirt at Sundance. Gotta love Spring in Utah! I was in warmer St. George last week with a lot of downtime, […]

p.s. to yesterday’s blog

I had this phone convo with my dad yesterday: Me: Dad, remember how you sprayed pesticides in your grampa’s cherry orchard when you worked for him, and a few times you got sprayed right in the face with no mask?

“I love my body,” part 2 of 4

I spent far more than my share of time hating my body. For 20 years, in fact, before I experienced a dramatic mental shift. Ask my best friend, Laura, who started in junior high school trying to get me to see myself differently. We spent a lot of time on beaches or in her backyard […]

“I love my body,” part 1 of 4

Provocative title of this blog post, right? The topic I probably spent the most time on at the Zermatt class a week ago is the special talent women have for indulging in guilt and tearing ourselves down! Where we spend our thoughts, and feelings, causes us to unite our body/mind/spirit in positive ways–-or it causes […]

Gratitude, part 2 of 3

From Liz Gilbert’s book, Eat Pray Love: “I keep remembering one of my Guru’s teachings about happiness. She says that people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you’re fortunate enough. But that’s not how happiness works. “Happiness is the […]

Gratitude, making your own happiness, part 1 of 3

My good friend Matthew left formal religion as a non-believer. This was a big problem for his wife, who consequently dumped him, moved away with his kids, and remarried. He counseled me a lot as I was newly divorced. I sought that out, because his divorce was amicable and he refuses to be miserable. What […]

Some of you will outgrow me, and I HOPE YOU ALL DO!

In the recent Mercola/Campbell debate I called “Clash of the Titans,” a comment was made by a reader that you may not have noticed–but it really made me think. “John” said that the more he stays close to sun and soil, and the more he learns and empowers himself, the less attention he pays to […]

Why you will always be nurtured here on GreenSmoothieGirl.com

On the internet, if you’ve been around a while, you know that many of the comments people make in public forums are angry, negative, and nonproductive. On the rare occasion I read these forums, my stomach ends up tied in knots after a few minutes. I hate conflict. I grew up in a home with […]
