Comfort Zone? Is It Really?

Comfort Zone? Is It Really?

Comfort zones? We hear a lot of talk about this idea. It labels a point in our life, or an area of our lives that we are so familiar with and so comfortable in, that we mire ourselves there quite happily. But consider…is it REALLY all that comfortable? A lot of folks will tell you they are happy and are not interested in changing anything, but I don’t buy it anymore. First of all, consider that if these ‘zones’ are…

I Lied And Said I Was Busy

I Lied And Said I Was Busy

Have you ever lied about being ‘busy’? The vague ‘oh I have an appointment then” when you really don’t? That sort of thing? I most certainly have.  In the past I think I lied about this quite often. Or worse didn’t and struggled through situations that were far too much for my physical well-being, not to mention emotional or mental well-being. I don’t know about you, but I use to lie about being busy to avoid the looks, the feelings…

How to Loosen the Habit of Judgment

How to Loosen the Habit of Judgment

We all do it, it’s a natural part of our human experience…judging things and people. Some folks will tell you that it’s ‘helpful’ and we need a certain amount of judgment in our lives in order to live them. You know, we need to judge whether something is right for us, if a situation is safe or helpful, if another person is going to be a good fit as a friend. But let me make a case for the difference…

What If Our Problems ARE What Make Us Happy?

What If Our Problems ARE What Make Us Happy?

Sometimes the problem is not the problem, only our interpretation of the problem is the problem. Get it? Ya, it’s a bit messy sounding and can lead down a pretty winding path of eye’s widening and exclaiming “ooooh!” I’m not going to lie, that winding path goes deep.  Still, you don’t have to walk the whole thing today. Just get started, start thinking about things a little differently. A great philosopher (whose name escapes me right now, but if you…

Why You Don’t Need New Year Resolutions

Why You Don’t Need New Year Resolutions

Why don’t you need to bother with New Year’s resolutions? Easy answer?  Because they SUCK and you don’t really care about them anyway. C’mon, am I right? Little bit? Yeah, I thought so. It’s December 31st, 2016 today. New Year’s Eve Baby! At 8am I’ve already had 3 emails and have seen multiple Facebook and twitter posts about how to ‘FIX’ your new year’s resolutions this year.  Everything from wording them differently, to buy this app, to getting a ‘resolution…

Personal Boundaries Are Beautiful – Here’s Why

Personal Boundaries Are Beautiful – Here’s Why

Boundaries! I think these might be the things my tribe most want to talk about when they first begin. There are a lot of myths and beliefs that cause a great deal of discomfort and stress when it comes to boundaries. I get it, but they shouldn’t. Boundaries are a beautiful thing! Well, they are when they are done right. Let’s get clear however, around what I mean when I say personal boundaries. I’m talking about the choices you make…

Define Your Own Success

Define Your Own Success

Imagine you’ve worked hard your whole life. You’ve gotten the degrees, perhaps even multiple degrees, you got the job, worked your way up the ladder to a corner office, you drive a nice car, have a big beautiful house, some kids and spouse…yup – here you are.  You might be a bit grayer than expected, little stressed or even a bit burned out – but hey! You made it! So why doesn’t it make you happy?  Why do you often…

What You’re Worth

What You’re Worth

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts lately about worth. Some have been about how to share your worth, being true to it or even questioning it. Lovelies, you have NO idea what you are worth. And you cannot ever know the unimaginable ways that you have affected this world as you walk through it. It’s not for you to know…it’s not all that important. Needing to know is ego. You shine like no one else can, and your light…

Saying YES to Pleasure

Saying YES to Pleasure

Let’s check in shall we?  When life offers you pleasure – how often do you say yes? And I’m talking about ALL kinds of pleasure – food, drink, sex, textures, dancing, music, new opportunities and – for me, even de-cluttering. I mean sure, there will be times when you have to say no – the amazing wine you had last night is probably not going to be served in the board room the next morning, no matter how sweetly you…
