I first had the pleasure of meeting Stacey Murrell at the Lancaster Marriott’s Penn Square Grille one evening last spring when she was in Lancaster implementing a diversity training for a group at Lancaster General Hospital. I am sure that her frank, friendly, and erudite openness was an asset to their participants! Below, she has some inspirational words for managing everyday life:

— Dr. Liz


When artisans young and old begin to create a work of art, it usually isn’t until years later that the original work is seen by others as a Masterpiece. I suggest that we think of our lives in that same manner. Everyday each of us are immersed in a sea of movement and emotions. We are constantly on the go even when we are being till. Our minds, racing to the next thing in hopes of keeping all the balls in the air. Why are we surprised when they fall and most of us do not have the talent of juggling? LOL

The constant movement can cause overload’s that manifest as fear, anxiety and compulsive behaviors and we end up overlooking the very things that gave us the energy to perform at this capacity.

To regulate the nuances of life, it’s important to incorporate routines that will allow you to release the pressure. The following are simple “wins” that are meant to be stepping stones that will propel you forward in Mastering the Pieces until you become the Masterpiece you were destined to be…

1.) Meditate 5 minutes in the morning and night

2.) Take a walk for 10 minutes away from your work area/home

3.) Give thanks by telling someone you appreciate them

4.) Write down one simple “win” everyday in a journal near where you rest

5.) Look in the mirror first thing in the morning and say, “I’m good enough!”
