Rewrite Your Story

October 19, 2017 - By: Helene Furst

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.” ~Eckhart Tolle

Our thoughts are powerful. I recently got an idea of how much so, when I had to take on a whole new career. Sure, writing is my passion, but the freelancing is sparse and that means so is the bank account. A simple little shift in my perspective kept me from feeling lost and sorry for myself.

At first, I was disappointed in myself for not getting a job in my chosen field. I built a novel in my head, beginning with the opening, “it’s unfair." Why can’t I find the job I want, when others who are less qualified, experienced, etc. are getting top positions? I began to see the classifieds and my email list as co-conspirators attacking me personally. Honestly, in my book, I was beating myself up, and often.

Sometimes you just need to get away...

Most of you know I review books on Amazon, and if I love the author’s way of getting the message across, they get a stellar review here, on Morning Beans Blog. I also read for pleasure (sorry Dorothy of PUYB) and now, having taken on a new job, survived the weeks of Jewish holidays and schizo-dog meltdowns, I am ready for a vacation.

How to Make Meditation Work For You

October 10, 2017 - By: Helene Furst

It's all about focus. Breathe, visualize, relax and be powerful.

It’s been a hectic week. The holidays have come and brought family, friends and a lot of stress. So, I meditate. In this series, I want to clarify, to break it down, so you – my lovely peeps – really understand what it is to meditate. It’s not just about some hippie chick sitting on a yoga mat, bent into a pretzel chanting Ohm. I find that there is a lot of confusion about the whole thing. What meditation is and how it works are a mystery to most, so Morning Beans will educate you, teach you, and relax you.

First, let’s get one thing straight. Meditation is all a balancing act. It’s about figuring out where you are, where you need to be, and how to get there. Zen. Meditation is all about focusing on feeling. Feeling the love, comfort, passion – whatever your n... [Continued]

Welcome to Morning Beans. Grab a cup of your favorite coffee, pull up a chair, and let's chat! I'm Helene and I am many things: writer, artist, mother, daughter, wife and friend. I write for all of us: the overworked homemaker, the executive goddesses, the poets, artists, and the wild hearted women

I believe life is about living your dreams, and sharing your story. And we all have stories. It's about being human and sometimes fallible.

Come visit often, and let my words move you, motivate you, and make you smile.

I believe in the power of words, in colorful conversations (often with strangers) and in the bright spark of friendship.

Welcome new friends.
