There was a time I tried to be everything I wasn't. Then wisdom whispered in my ear, "You're everything you need to be."

For a good portion of my adult life, I set traditional goals. January came along, I would list what I wanted to accomplish and hoped they’d stick. However, ten years ago it all changed. I found myself less excited about the goals I was setting. I decided to do some digging to figure out why […]
For a number of years I’ve written an Ode to the New Year replaying events of the past year. But this year felt different. As I make my way in to the New Year I’m just not inspired to write my annual ode, instead I feel compelled to revisit some of the moments that reminded […]
Ego, #itscomplicated. However, ego is necessary as we navigate through life. When I think of ego, I think of Goldilocks. She sampled different bowls of porridge before finding the one that was “just right.” Ego, same thing. Finding just the right amount of ego can work for us. Too much or too little ego can […]
One of the things I love about moving forward in the game of life is the realization that learning NEVER ends. When I was younger, I believed that wisdom came to “old people” when they knew all they could about others. Fast forward, I’ve come to know that wisdom is learning about yourself. You cannot […]
For a good part of my life I thought I was terrible at math. If I’d make an error when figuring out how much to tip, I’d say, “I suck at math.”  The problem is that every time I said this it reinforced the belief that I was not good at math. Let’s add in […]
Many of us have likely struggled with doing something we know is good for us. There is clearly a block that prevents us from doing what's good for us and sticking with what we know, what's comfortable, what's easy.
Over the past two years there has been a lot. A lot. In fact so much that I kept trying to figure out how to save the world, only to weep in frustration knowing I couldn’t do anything. I’d put my head down on my pillow at night and think about all the things that […]
I was very excited to tune in for the Adele special this past week. Her voice sounded as good as ever, and I rather liked how they broke her songs up with the Oprah interview. (Random observation- two women who just go by their first name). The conversation wasn’t deep but it was enough to […]
In today’s environment the one thing we can all agree on, this past year has been a sh&% show. Everything from Covid to work/life shifts, political division, and now, to spice things up, we’ve got the Delta variant and vaccine wars. It’s sad, it’s frustrating, and at times it’s heartbreaking.
Some of life’s most important lessons don’t happen with the snap of the fingers, or in the course of a day. In order to learn, sometimes we need to hear a message over and over again. Only when we are ready and willing to accept the message that is being whispered, or in my case yelled, are we truly able to receive it and transform.
