What is your life purpose? February 08, 2015

This question, when thought about for even a minute, begins your inquiry. If this question tugs at your insides, if no question is more important, then we can engage in a meaningful conversation. I was asked to write a quote about Purpose in honor of the CLBLive HOA video show, on which I was a panelist […]

What is your personal Thanksgiving? November 23, 2014

I am freezing while sitting here writing this. Our furnace is on the brink, and for the last week or so, as we researched which furnace to buy and worked with Mass Save so that our energy usage would be the most efficient, the temperature has steadily dropped in the house, this morning reading 60 […]

Empowerment. Live like you mean it.   July 20, 2014

Yesterday I met someone who reminded me of how grateful I am for everything I have. We met at a women’s networking luncheon, and talked and talked. We talked about her father, a Harvard graduate who stood for world peace way before it was in vogue, and had died at age 44, when she was only 16. We […]

How to improve self-worth. March 21, 2014

A true sign of self-worth and self-acceptance? Feeling good enough to be on camera without any make-up. This issue arose for several of us on a recent Google+ HOA (Hangout on Air)—a live show, but one that most people would watch as a rerun.  I, fairly new to this technology, didn’t realize that a simple […]

Your self-acceptance project. March 12, 2014

For self-acceptance I invite you to ask WHO AM I? Sure, we grow and change. Learn new things. Meet new people. Cut our hair. Make money. Get sick. Run the marathon. Grow old. There’s so much change. But does it change who we really are? And, how do we discover who we really are? Do […]

I’m in. #BringYourNakedFace. January 27, 2014

There ins’t anyone who can convince me that we don’t get exactly what we need. We only have to go after it. What do you need? Ask the still, small voice inside, allow the wisdom to come and it will be there. It is always there, it is just our receivers that need fine tuning. […]

Learning to love and accept yourself—really. December 20, 2013

I was driving to Boston the other day, and instead of it taking me the usual thirty-five minutes it took me over two hours. The traffic was insane. Sitting in the car was torture; however, I noticed that I was deriving some sort of perverse pleasure from imagining how I would complain about it when […]

Let it go, this too shall pass. November 20, 2013

A few years ago our family went through some real difficulties. My husband lost his job, and I wasn’t bringing in much money, so our savings were going fast. Yes, it was freak out time!! We were also dealing with some medical issues, while looking for new medical insurance. All of this really put a […]

Follow your gut as a parent. And reap the joys. November 20, 2013

The other day I was on my treadmill digging on my tunes when my son—and our dog—came downstairs to the basement to be with me. Frankly, it irritated me, because my favorite song was coming through my headphones, and I was enjoying my alone-time. Fortunately, a few seconds later I said to myself “helloooooo!!!!” I’d […]
