Messy Transitions

By | Personal Growth, Self Care | 2 Comments

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…

Finally! The Baby’s Here!

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

If you’ve been following my journey over the last 8 months or so, you’ll know that I was journeying though what I called “The Void”. I surrendered fully to my Souls journey, letting go of much of what I was doing and how I was doing them and creating space for what was wanting to be birthed next through me. It’s has been a journey that has required: Developing greater levels of courage and trust – in myself and the…

The Greatest Gifts

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

Monday was a ‘doozie’ 🙁 I woke up feeling anxious. So I listened to a guided meditation called “fear clear”. Then I picked up a book I’m currently enjoying: “The Book of Knowing and Worth” by Paul Selig. It didn’t take long before the voices in my head started reminding me that it was Monday and I “should” get up and “get to work”. Traditionally, Mondays are the day I work ‘on’ my business (marketing, planning) , not ‘in’ it…

I’m BACK!!! (Did You Notice I Was Gone?)

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | 2 Comments

I’m BACK!!! Ok, so maybe you didn’t even notice I was gone… 🙂 But if you did, you may be wondering where I’ve been … or maybe not (but I’m going to tell you anyway) Lol! I’ve been in “THE VOID”. It’s a place of deep unknown – in between letting go the old and waiting for /allowing the new (the next level of expansion) to emerge. It can be pretty scary. Especially if you don’t have support and don’t…

Are You Paying Attention?

By | Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

Yesterday I was going to the restroom on a break at a seminar I was attending. I was checking my emails on my phone while I walked (even though I get annoyed at people who nearly run me over because they are looking at their phones instead of paying attention to where they are going! Lol!) My very full bladder was relieved to find there wasn’t the usual long line in the ladies rest room and I only put my…

A Hero’s Journey

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

  I first met Lizel when I moved to Maryland in 2008. Her striking eyes were a window to a beautiful soul. What I also saw, was a protective wall of energy she had built around her. As an intuitive healer and empath, I often perceive what is not obvious to others. Lizel simultaneously loved and hated that I could see behind her well constructed masks and sophisticated defense mechanisms.  It was also the very reason she hired me as…

Is The Reward Worth The Effort?

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

The end of the year is always a time of reflection and contemplation for me. I look back (with gratitude) at ALL that happened his year – what went well and what didn’t, what happened and what didn’t, what I accomplished and what I didn’t. I think about what I want to continue doing in the coming year, and what I want to do differently. Most importantly, I decide how I want to BE. It is part of being a…

The COST of Not Being Present

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | 4 Comments

  December can be a really joyful time of year, reconnecting with family and friends. Lots of celebrations and parties. It can also be an emotional and stressful time of year. For some, it’s a time of financial stress… Running around buying gifts, entertaining, traveling to visit with family and friends. For some it’s a time of emotional stress. Feeling sad, missing someone you’ve lost this year, (through death or divorce). Or the stress of feeling obligated to go places…

It Takes A Village (to be successful)

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | 4 Comments

It’s 60 minutes before I’m scheduled to present my talk. I’ve been calm all day. Surprisingly calm. None of the usual jitters. Which is interesting, since this is the first time I’m going to be making a paid offer to an audience at an event that is not mine. I’ve made many offers for free gifts that had people “running to the back of the room” and this is my next “stretch” – to make them an offer that requires them…

What Are You Tolerating?

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care | No Comments

  A sound causes me to look up from my desk. My husband is standing in the open doorway of my office, a pained look on his face.               “Robbie died today”.   What? My initial response is that he is joking. His face crumples and he lowers his head as a loud sob escapes – I immediately realize that he is not. I jump to my feet and grab hold of him. Instinctively…
