Kindness and Intention

Kindness and Intention by Beach T. WestonJust Beachie Column (5 minute read) This story begins with a heavenly facial. An indulgence I allow myself on occasion. One of my mottos: Spoil yourself when you can. Give yourself treats—lots of delightful treats! We give our children and pets treats so why not give ourselves a few goodies.  I was following my own advice—and with each pampered moment my worries scurried into the ether. I was in such a delightful Zen moment that if someone had rushed into the therapy room and shouted:   “LADY GAGA AND BRADLEY COOPER ARE AT THE FRONT […]

Seek Joy. Seek Peace.

 “We can never obtain peace in the outer world until me make peace with ourselves”  ~Buddha~  Seek Joy. Seek Peace. by Beach T. Weston Just Beachie Column (5 minute read) One of my favorite stories began twenty-five hundred years ago. There are many delightful versions, but for me, I found the following to be the most engaging: The story begins with an Indian Queen’s dream of her unborn Child. In her dream, a snowy white Elephant offered her a pink lotus flower—with love—she accepted the gift. And with love—the white Elephant became one with the beautiful Queen. The Queen shared […]

Blame it on the Retrograde!

Should fear and the planet’s motions dictate our behavior? Is it sensible to be Chicken Little and run around shouting, “the sky is falling…the sky is falling!” Or should we just “pop it with a hatpin!”. And if that doesn’t work…

Is It Fate Or Is It Destiny?

Is It Fate Or Is It Destiny? by Beach T. Weston “Just Beachie Column” Fridays in Hawai’i are always referred to as Aloha Friday—give us any excuse to end the week with the shorebreak at our side, friendship, and Happy Hour. It’s one of the joys of living in paradise (or visiting paradise). It was on one of those perfect Aloha Fridays. The Palm trees catching the balmy breeze as if they were saying look how beautifully I dance the Hula. I seized the charm of the moment and presented two questions to my aloha friends.  Do you believe in […]

Feed me Facebook! Feed me! FEED ME NOW!!!

Feed me Facebook! Feed me! FEED ME NOW! By Beach T. Weston “Just Beachie Column” Scrolling through my feed, I was dismayed to see an unexpected announcement from my friend: “I’m deeply concerned,” she wrote, “with personal privacy on social media and I might close my Facebook account.” Of course, her Facebook community responded: “What!? No…we love you and your posts…please don’t leave us!” My friend, whom I shall call Merriam, is a nice person—she doesn’t post mean videos or comments—and to realize such a positive person was experiencing a difficult choice was a shocking moment for many of us […]

Joy and Gratitude

By Beach T. Weston Just Beachie Column (3 to 5 min read) Have you ever sized up a stranger within seconds based on their clothes, hair, teeth, shoes, height, weight? Anything that made them different from what society refers to as being “normal”. Or were you the one that was being scrutinized? Judged? As I pursue my lifelong quest of trying to be more conscious and kind, I find there are moments when I fall back into the judgmental thinking (for others and myself). But in my defense (or so I tell myself) it can be a real challenge to […]

Let Laughter Rock Your World!

Find Your Funny Bone by Beach T. Weston “Just Beachie Column” (3 minute read) Have you ever experienced a good belly laugh? A laugh so hardy it brought tears of joy? A laugh so grand it transported you to a place of bliss? I have…many times. I love to laugh! For me, a day without laughter would be like eating a salty, two-day-old sardine and pickle sandwich. Yuck! A day full of laughter is like eating a homemade vegan cherry pie. Yum! Think about what a day with laughter is like for you? And what is a day without laughter […]

Clearing A Path For A Stronger You

Moe and Curly decided to have a night cocked full of ruckus. Jumping, running, slurping their water, chopping on their food, digging in their box, (not depositing) just having fun digging for nuggets. Oh joy!
