My First (and last) Triathlon

It’s that time of year again.

No, not Christmas or Hanukkah.  It’s time to set new goals for the next year.  This is the time of year when I look back at what I have accomplished (or have yet to accomplish) and set an agenda for the coming year. 

It’s torture.

Two Rules of Self-Care

Sunday, I did something out of the ordinary.

Nothing.

Seriously.  I didn’t even change out of my pajamas.  Didn’t shower.  Just sat on the couch and read my Kindle.

That was not my intention.  Sunday is normally the day I set myself up for the week.  I make a...

Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

We had a beautiful, sunny, fall weekend and took advantage of this perfect weather by raking leaves.  Our next-door neighbors were also performing fall cleanup and we chatted a little as we worked.

We have a split rail fence along our property line.  It doesn’t offer any...

What Do You Stand For?

What does it look like when you identify and stand up for your values and principles? 

I recently watched a documentary on the fabulous Latina actress, Rita Moreno.

Falling Down the Rabbit Hole

I haven’t been myself the last few weeks.

Just a general ennui, a lack of energy and feeling of listlessness.  I couldn’t put my finger on what was causing me to feel this way.  Could it be the weather?  Maybe my diet?  Lack of exercise?

Thursday I was able to talk...

The Verdict Is - Not Guilty

I was talking to a client yesterday and he said, “I was supposed to go to a funeral today, but I decided not to go.”

Tom feels his family is toxic and has a history of negative behavior.  Currently there is a legal battle regarding stolen inheritance money, and he...

Elsa Said It Best - Let It Go

When you tell someone, “No,” how does it make you feel?

The moment people pleasers are faced with a decision, we become hyper focused on how the other person will react.  As we try to measure how the other person is feeling, we lose sight of what we are...

Tired of Being Used

“I should know better by now.  Every time I try to help my brother, I get screwed.”

Sometimes, the people we love the most can be the biggest energy vampires.  My client, Kelly, is tired of being taken advantage of by her brother.  She is balancing being a supportive...

Should You Be Worried?

My mom is in town, staying with me for a few days.  I am just a way-stop on her journey to Nova Scotia, Canada.  The border opened so she can finally take this trip that was cancelled last year due to Covid. 

My mom is a world traveler with an adventurous spirit.  Canada is...

One Woman's Transformational Journey

I just finished up a three-month transformational journey with an amazing woman named Jessica.  When Jessica scheduled her 30-minute discovery call with me, she expressed her struggle this way:

“I am having a hard time setting boundaries and saying no to my mom.  This is impacting...

How to Communicate With Confidence

Think about a time when you needed to say NO to someone or something.  Maybe you had to cancel a service or didn’t feel like attending a family gathering. 

How did it make you feel to say NO?  Were you able to do it?  Or did you force yourself, against your wishes and...

Change Takes Courage

In my last blog post, Time to Realign, I shared how I was losing control of my resources (time, energy, money) and needed a realignment.

I spent some time identifying and reaffirming my values and priorities.  I hope you did too!  There are so many things grasping for our attention;...
