You learn more about someone at the end of a relationship than you do in the beginning. What is my intention for being in this relationship right now? Can I speak openly and honestly about both my positive and negative feelings or do I hide them or suppress them? Can I easily make a repair and forgive after I’ve been hurt or do I go silent and hold a grudge? Am I able to take in a different perspective on something even if I think I’m right or is it essential that my partner ultimately agree with me? Am I […]

“You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.” ~ Maya Angelou Most of us walk through the world with the sole agenda of proving our self worth and purpose for being on this earth. While I know we all want to make a difference, and it’s becoming harder and harder to stand out in today’s crazy world of social media, I feel it’s my duty to remind you of why you have nothing to prove to anybody.   I’ll start by saying it simply. YOU ARE ENOUGH. A hard concept to grasp I’m sure, but it’s very […]

Happiness is the new self-help drug. We all want it, strive for it, and feel depressed when we don’t feel it. I know I have watched happiness slip through my fingers time and again leaving me feeling frustrated and ineffective for not being able to sustain it. Not unlike love, happiness eludes and changes form as soon as we think we’ve got a sense of what it is. As you know from most of my previous writing or through working with me that I am highly focused and passionate about generating a sense of meaning in life as opposed to […]

“There are no wrong turns, only unexpected paths.” ~ Mark Nepo There are times when life is simply coast, and other times where it’s under construction. For those of us who make the personal choice to grow and learn about ourselves throughout the lifespan, we can expect to be in and out of doing work at any given time. Sometimes it’s a personal choice, and at other times we’re bombarded with something that forces us deeper into our inner world. When you’re passing through a personal work zone the roads get bumpy and the path is unpredictable. It’s hard to […]

I had a conversation the other night about the passing of Nelson Mandela. The gentleman I was speaking with kept referring to this great leader as being “smart” and politically savvy. He went on to suggest that Mandela “knew how to manipulate people” in a way that “good leaders can”. I had an immediate reaction to the use of the word “smart”. Not because I don’t think Nelson Mandela was a very smart man, but because it’s way too simple of a word to describe the magnitude of what he contributed. Nelson Mandela was not only smart; he was wise. […]

“Necessity of action takes away the fear of the act, and makes bold resolution the favorite of fortune.” – Francis Quarles The countdown to January 2014 is on, and this is such a powerful month for so many reasons. The winter, and December in particular, can bring on feelings of overwhelm, confusion, and uncertainty. The colder weather and time change force us inside both figuratively and literally, making it hard to escape many of the realities we try to avoid throughout the year. However, December can also be a month of deep reflection, and it’s historically been a time where […]

The holidays are upon us, and as always it opens the door for a great amount of self-reflection. The end of the year brings many thoughts and feelings, but most often it invokes inquiry about where we are in the context of our lives. To uncover where I was this time last year, I went back and re-read the newsletter I sent to you in November of 2012. I had just returned from a trip to Morocco, which was my first international trip alone. After reading it I realized that my message, intention, desire, and authenticity remain the same today… […]

I’ve been digging very deep these past few weeks on truly embracing my vulnerabilities, and allowing myself to just show up in the world as my imperfectly perfect self. It’s been an interesting ride so far, even as someone who thought she had done all “the work” necessary to be content with who she is (hint: that’s me). I’ve come to realize that there is no end to this game of personal growth. It’s an ongoing process, with peaks, valleys and potholes. I have always been a firm believer that regression begets development, meaning that we have to take two […]

I have just returned from a life altering conference called Emerging Women 2013. The name will most likely generate an immediate reaction in you that will either be “I need to know about this” or “Oy, not another feminist uprising”. I feel it’s my job to let you know that Emerging Women 2013 is both. Whether you are a man or a woman, you will want to be connected to this amazing organization. Not only because it needs to grow and spread like a wildfire, but because we cannot continue to make a difference in this world without it. I’ll […]

I’m preparing to go on a trip this week, which is always a kind of process for me. As you know, I think and write a lot about “journeys” and the process of getting from one place in life to the next. I’m always hyper-aware of the in between parts of any kind of travel, and I believe that leaving and arriving are secondary to what happens in the middle. This got me thinking about how life is one big trip to nowhere. I think we all like to act like we have destinations and places we aspire to reach, […]
