Achieving our goals can wait. February 22, 2015

Do you know those times in life when nothing definitive seems to be happening? No resounding YES! You nailed it! Go with THAT one! Despite everything you’re doing, things just don’t seem to be falling into place. This describes my life the past couple weeks. I’ve experienced the opposite—when hard work and focus brought quick results. But now, after […]

Choosing for our children. February 15, 2015

As the wallpaper for his tablet, my eleven-year-old son chose a photograph of the torso of a very fat man being arrested, who was wearing a tee shirt that said, “This really sucks.” He thought it was hilarious. I knew it had to go. Eureka! What an amazing teaching opportunity it provided! Here was a […]

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 […]

The sweetest fruits of success. February 01, 2015

I’ve turned down a bunch of projects lately. Small ones and larger ones. I could use the income, certainly, but between my efforts with promoting my latest book Finding Zoe and some personal things I have going on, I hear a resounding internal NO every time I consider taking on a new project. My husband has been consumed with […]

How do we choose? January 26, 2015

  Have you ever believed in something so utterly and completely, that if it were compromised you’d be willing to let it go? A relationship, perhaps? A project? Perhaps, even your own life? I am reading, The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert. Tonight, after reading the book for months, riveted, I finally reached […]

Finding strength in tough times. January 09, 2015

When something in your life is very difficult to do, but you know in your heart that it must be done, how do you find the strength to see it through? How do you listen to your rationalizations, yet see them for what they really are? How do you honor your emotions, letting them course […]

Enhance your life by seeing the mystery in the mundane. December 02, 2014

Real quick. I was having trouble with my contact lens and had to stop wearing it. It was a simple case of red eye that not a single doctor could help me with. Each recommended something different, “Clean your eye with baby shampoo”… “Use a warm compress” … “Try dailies ” … “Consider laser surgery” […]

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 […]

False assumption? Just let it go. May 01, 2014

The other day I read a post on Facebook about making assumptions by the lovely Lissa Rankin, M.D. She explained how, for years, she had contorted her body in all sorts of weird shapes while reaching under the kitchen sink to fill the soap dispenser. She tried finding an easier way to fill it, but […]

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 […]
