Mark Mid Summer and Look Ahead To The Future

Today I’m inviting you to pause to mark mid summer and turn to look ahead to the future you want to create for yourself.

It’s all been so much richer and deeper and more amazing than I could have ever dreamed. Join me now in...

Ever feel overwhelmed? When there are so many important things to attend to, you can wear yourself out trying to take care of everything and everyone — leaving you feeling scattered and exhausted. And often your own self care — and your hopes, and dreams — get bumped off your To Do list all together!  But don’t despair — everyone feels like they can’t keep up with their own life sometimes. That time is flying by and important goals always get put on the back burner.  And that feeling balanced and centered will never happen. I’ll let you in on a little secret:  the elusive feeling...

Finding Authenticity in Letting Go

Posted by on Dec 1, 2016 in Blog, Changing Habits, Decision-making, Empowerment, Mindset, Overcoming Fears, Self Acceptance | 4 comments

No matter which candidate you supported, this election season and the turmoil it has unleashed, has taken a great toll on each of us, and our nation as a whole. I believe it’s important to recognize this fact and...

What Fat Pants Have To Do With Self Love

I came across my fat pants the other day, while reorganizing my closet. You know what I’m talking about — those pants you had to get because all your other ones were too tight, choking you in the waist and riding up your… well, you get the picture, no need to go into the gory details.

We’ve all been there.

My fat pants, and some of my “regular” pants are a little big on me now, and it’s all because I bought the fat pants.

That’s right, buying the fat pants started the extra weight coming off!
