Kita' s Gentle Message: Spike Plants are Like Life (Saturday, May 31, 2014)

I planted four spike plants in one big planter last fall when I moved them indoors.  They’re hardy and need little care or so I thought.  One by one the plants have withered away turning brown from their original green and finally keeling over like wet spaghetti.  Only one is left now and appears to be thriving: more green stems are expanding up and outwards giving the illusion of filling the entire pot.  Has this one robbed the others of vital nutrients?  Has it…

Kita's Gentle Message: Do You Ever Feel Like an Imposter? (Saturday, May 24, 2014)

Today as I’m writing this, there’s a little voice inside me saying, “Do you really think someone’s going to read this?  Do people really care what you think and write about, Kita?”  And I hesitate to answer because what if it’s true?  That I’m just kidding myself into believing that I’ve got a message worth repeating…  that I’m an imposter pretending to wanting to make a difference in your life.  And then as quickly as I’ve had this thought, it disappears and is…

Kita' s Gentle Message: Smiling Unleashes the Soul (Saturday, May 17, 2014))

“A smile is a crooked line that puts everything straight. Smiling unleashes the soul.

He was subsequently asked to come back to the campus but has not yet decided what he’s going to do. Defending freedom of speech and staying in your integrity in the face of…

Kita's Gentle Message: Miracles in the Looking (Saturday, May 10, 2014)

Being aware is not only a question of being in the moment and stepping outside of yourself to observe your behaviour. As you practise awareness and choose your response to people and situations with deliberation, something else quite miraculous starts to unfold before your “eyes”. Once these moments of awareness are strung together, you begin to detect a pattern of life happening with such precision and incredible timing that it’s beautiful to behold. The cancelled…

Kita's Gentle Message: Are You Tribal? (Saturday, May 5, 2014)

I’ve been asked if I am interested in contributing to “Tribal Woman Magazine”. My initial response is a set of two questions: What is a tribal woman and am I one? I went to the magazine’s website and saw that the byline states, “passionate about business and life,” which is great but somehow I keep conjuring up a bonfire with some wild-haired females dancing feverishly around it. My apologies for this stereotypical image my mind keeps offering me. I guess I’m not…
