Ask Yourself: What Do You Need

When our daughter was little, there were times when she was so out of sorts, I felt helpless in helping her. One day, I opened up to a friend and shared this with her. In return, she offered the suggestion of asking our girl the simple question – What do you need? That question became […]

How to Respond with Gratitude

Last week, my life was full of Magical Moments – but probably not the kind you’re imagining. On Monday, we discovered that we’d accidentally cut the gas line to the stove while doing some DYI landscaping (no explosions or injuries, thank God!) Tuesday, the septic backed up and had to be pumped. Wednesday, the plumbers […]

Lead with your vulnerability

When working with coaching clients, whether to help uplift and transform their lives or bring their book to life, the theme that constantly emerges is Vulnerability. Lead with your vulnerability, I so often say. Open your heart and share what is there. That is where the magic begins. That is where others will connect to you. Easier said […]

What is yoga to you?

I was recently thinking about a yoga class where my teacher posed the question, “What is yoga to you?”  She wasn’t looking for any raised hands. The question was more of an offering; something to meditate upon throughout our practice. As I began bending and twisting, I thought that yoga was just simply moving my body. […]

You Have Permission to Take Care of Yourself

There were days when I was so exhausted, my eyes wouldn’t focus properly. Yet even on the rare […]

The Power of Writing Down Your Dreams

Last week, I was talking to a dear friend about all the changes he really wanted to make in his life. “Write them down,” I told him. In my coaching sessions, when my clients describe their dream life, I say to them, “Write it down.” There is something so powerful about writing words on the […]

A Summer Snow Day

There’s nothing I love more than a snow day. When I was a classroom teacher, I’d listen to the radio announcements with my fingers crossed – willing the announcer to say the name of my school. Then when my own kids were in school, I’d say a little wish before opening the computer to check. […]

The Magic of Setting Intentions

Last week I walked into one of my favorite local bookshops (where I’m doing a reading in October!) and let my eyes linger on covers and titles, waiting to find just the right one, or for it to find me.  I left with the book, Soulful Simplicity, by Courtney Carver, and I’ve been immersed for the past several days. It’s […]
