The Things That Piss You Off (the gift of triggers)

Gift of Triggers

My cell phone rings. It’s my husband. “Your Moms flight has been cancelled. We’re on our way back home”. My reaction is not joy at having more time with my 87+ year old Mom. On the contrary, I’m pissed! I was really looking forward to her leaving. I love my Mom, but for no obvious…

Finally! The Baby’s Here!

Header Weekend Soul Retreats

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…

The Power of Language: Finding The “Right” Way To Talk About What You Do

The Power of language

The effective and powerful use of language is an art. The words we use have the power to heal or to harm. One word, one sentence – said with a certain emphasis – can create a sonic boom in someone’s awareness. It can attract or repel. It can open you up or shut you down. It…

The Power of Disappointment

Ever just feel like you’re struggling? You know what you “should” be doing, yet you just can’t seem to muster up the motivation or inspiration to do it? You do just the bare minimum. The things that are already on your schedule. You show up for your commitments, but in the spaces around them, you…

The COST of Not Being Present

Be present image

  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…

What’s [Self] Love Got To Do With it? [Success]

Rumi Quote

I spent the first part of my life trying to be anything but myself. I am an empath. That is, I have the ability to powerfully feel other people’s feelings (particularly when they are trying not to feel them themselves). I have an acute sensitivity to, and awareness of, energy – and emotions are energy.…

The Gift of Imperfection

I often say “Business is just another path of Soul growth”. This is because, in my own journey to building 3 successful businesses and having a life I love to wake up to everyday, I have discovered it’s more about who you become in the process. It’s about being who you need to BE. So you…

Are You Living YOUR Dreams?

Are-You-Living-Your-Dream

I have been in almost constant motion for the first six months of this year. It’s all been good. As one person commented on my FB thread last week “you are living the dream”. That is true. Most importantly, I am living MY dream. Are you living YOURS? For a good chunk of my earlier…

It’s 3:30 am and I am in the midst of final packing and preparations to go to the Be The Change Event in Orlando. I had written my post on Sunday but was inspired to send it as an email that day. At the time I hesitated, thinking “then I’ll have to come up with…

A Different Perspective

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”

I’m walking down the aisle, trying to balance the bag on my shoulder so it doesn’t bang anyone in the head as I struggle to navigate the small suitcase on wheels along the narrow path to my seat on the plane. I feel harried and agitated by the time I locate my aisle seat, 21c. Ugh! There’s…
