7 Reasons to Be Happy Even If Your Life Isn’t Perfect Yet

By | Awareness, Happiness, Personal Growth | No Comments

“Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect. It means you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.” ~ Author Unknown Happiness is your birthright. Everyone, no matter who you are, deserves to be happy. Interestingly though, the happiest people in the world aren’t the ones with the most money, possessions, fame, power, friends, health or even love. Most of us, from an early age, learns to be unhappy. We form hidden or subconscious patterns that create unhappiness. Some people even come to…

Top 5 Unexpected Misconceptions About Manifestation

Top 5 Unexpected Misconceptions About Manifestation

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Manifestation is one of those words that has become a “buzzword”. Often associated with the Universal Law of Attraction, for many it conjures up images of having things appear magically “out of thin air” (but only if you know “The Secret”). For others, it denotes an ability to attract without effort – a gift that is given to a select few. In reality, we are all manifesting all of the time, 24/7. We are all co-creators of life. The question…

How to Make an Impact in the World that Matters to You

By | Personal Growth | No Comments

Every year, I talk with many women about their career hopes and dreams. And the one thing I hear them say most often is: “I just want to make a difference.” And the truth is that they are already making a difference, because everything we do has an impact in the world in some way. The problem is that they are not making the difference that matters to them. The hours that you spend working will dictate whether or not…

3 Powerful Ways to Let Go of Self-Criticism

By | Personal Growth | No Comments

Are you too hard on yourself, constantly criticizing yourself, saying things you would never say to anyone else? Do you have a “mean voice” inside your head, telling you things like “You’re not worthy” or “You will never make it” or perhaps even “You’re so dumb.” Self-criticism can be a deadly trap that will stop you from making the changes you want to make in your life. Perhaps you had parents or a teacher that criticized you harshly with the…

It’s Not About Being “Careful”

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

A few weeks ago, as I stepped out of my house in the late evening to walk my dog, Sadie, I started to slide on the ice outside my front door. Whoa! I looked around and saw that a thin layer of ice was covering the entire sidewalk and road! I had to walk her, so I figured out pretty quickly that if I walked on the grass it was safer. I slowly made my way up the block, carefully…

NOT Feeling The ‘Happy’ In the ‘Happy New Year!’ ?

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth | No Comments

Yesterday (New Years Day), I was despondent. I was morose. I felt uninspired. Here I was on the first day of a brand new year, with all the promise it holds, unable to feel excited or grateful. My mind kept running through what I “should” be happy about, what I “should” be grateful for.   Yes, there were light moments throughout the day: Sitting on the couch snuggling with my doggy, Sadie, and watching her completely relax and soak up…

Finding The Gift In Your Pain

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

My body was out of alignment. For a few days I had been feeling a ‘clicking’ in my right hip and lower back. I went to chiropractor and got adjusted. It didn’t hold. Within 30 minutes it was clicking again. A deep tissue massage and another trip to the chiropractor helped, but did not completely resolve the issue. I knew my body was trying to tell me something. When an issue doesn’t resolve right away it’s an invitation to look…

What’s Your Fear Of Confrontation Costing You?

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

I used to HATE confrontation. I would avoid it like the plague because I was raised to believe it’s “not nice” and I placed a high value on being “nice”.  Is that true for you too? It’s one of the driving forces behind what I call “TOXIC NICENESS”  (where we hold back from expressing how we really feel for fear of hurting someones feelings or to avoid them thinking badly of us.) Fear of confronting (looking at or speaking the…

Messy Transitions

Today marks the first day that I am officially an “empty nester”. The last of my three children left home yesterday for college. My older two have been gone for a while. (It’s a 10 year age difference between #2 and #3.) Last week we were all together for the first time in 6 years! #2 graduated from the Naval Officer training program and I seized the opportunity to create a mini family reunion around the celebration. My Mom flew…
