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 […]

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 […]

Every mother should learn how to let go. October 31, 2014

  Yesterday was the first day that I left my son home alone. He’s eleven. At first, it felt strange asking him if he wanted to stay home by himself. But he was ready, and so was I. The freedom I felt was glorious; going to the mall and bank solo, just like that. I […]

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 […]

Empowering our kids with social media. June 11, 2014

I got stuck between Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. I was on automatic pilot, engaging, responding, posting—information coming at me from every which way, until I didn’t  know if I was coming or going. It began innocently, but like a wave, the social media lure just swallowed me up and spit me out. I was in […]
