Opportunity can be overwhelming. I read a lot of blogs and books about abundance, living fully, and creating the life you want. While there is nothing wrong with wanting to get the most out of your time here on earth, I have found that too many choices can lead to indecision and paralyzing fear. When my kids were little it was all about limiting choices. Whether it was the cereal they were eating for breakfast, or the clothes they would wear to school, I always presented them with a maximum of two options. This gave them a sense of power […]

There is no denying that most of us are lost. Even if you are very good at being on auto-pilot, doing the tasks you are expected to do, living the life you are supposed to live, you might be completely off course in finding the deep, personal meaning you long for. The ancients called this “soul-loss”, and it happens when we stay on the path of least resistance, and feel deeply unsatisfied with the way life is going. You may not know what you need or want; only that something is missing. If you feel this, you are not alone, […]

When it comes to your divorce, the very idea of forgiveness might feel impossible or even incomprehensible. You might ask yourself, “Why would I ever forgive someone who hurt me and ruined my life?” The answer is that just as anger and resentment feel empowering and often illusively relieve the pain of rejection, forgiveness can mistakenly feel like your pardoning your ex’s actions, or letting him or her off the hook. The truth is your anger and resentment create suffering, and your inability to forgive can keep you stuck. Read on.

I used to wonder why no one ever invited me to parties, places or gatherings. I felt like I really put myself out there, only to find that none of the people I had extended myself to reciprocated. It constantly felt like the world was passing me by, and that there was always something going on that I didn’t know about or hadn’t been included in. This went on for a really long time until I learned something important, and I want to share that with you now. LIFE IS A PARTY AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE INVITED. and […]

I always seem to get a little cynical around Valentine’s Day. Maybe it’s the over-consumption of flowers, chocolates and balloons, but I have trouble getting in the spirit of love when it feels forced. As most of you know, my view of things most often comes from what I call an inside out perspective. I am always looking for what’s beneath the surface; I delve down into the darker more remote parts of emotional life. I look for the meaning in experiences with the intention of gaining insight and wisdom from what we endure on a daily basis as human […]

I have come to believe that the key to long lasting happiness is connection. For years I have deluded myself into thinking that I am connected to others and the world because I receive emails daily or that I have hundreds of friends on Facebook. Then of course there is Instagram, Twitter and even Google Chat where I can interact all day long without ever having to leave my house. While these can all be considered a form of connection, it does not constitute the kind of deep resonance I need to have with others in order to maintain a […]

We are well into the month of December, which means many of you are on the cusp or in the throws of the holiday spirit. I always find this time of year to be both challenging and uplifting as I try to balance the joy with the inevitable stress. I find myself being more moody and sensitive to others actions, which I can only connect to the heightened expectations of myself, and others during this time of year. I have to dig deep to match my super friendly bank teller’s chipper attitude when I just want to make a deposit […]

My email inbox has been bombarded over the last few days with messages about gratitude, giving thanks, abundance and the importance of giving back. While I appreciate the friendly reminders and realize that there is never any harm in sharing positive and inspiring wisdom, I wonder if encouraging people to practice gratitude during the Thanksgiving holiday isn’t redundant. Thanksgiving is one of the few times of year where people feel and intrinsic motivation to give back and to take a moment to reflect on their good fortune. Volunteer opportunities on Thanksgiving are maxed out showing us that this is the […]

I’ve been on a personal quest lately to find the answer to this question, but first let me just clarify that when I speak of entitlement here, I am not talking about an over-inflated sense of entitlement that usually coincides with a lack of gratitude or a ridiculously unrealistic sense of importance. I’m speaking of our natural right to claim something that is legitimately yours. For example, I seem to have a good sense of entitlement in certain aspects of my life: I know I’m entitled to being treated respectfully, to work in a job I love, and to take […]
