Worth It Book Review

I talk a lot about wellness, yet probably not enough about a key area of well-being in all our lives – financial well-being. If we are not well in our financial house, that can bleed into basically every other area of our life.

The Power of An Apology

I’m sorry.   Those two words can mean the world to someone when said with deep sincerity.   Yet, we resist it all we can. We jump to our own defense.

When one person heals, we all heal

Happy Thanksgiving!   What are you reflecting on today? Perhaps you’re looking around and bursting with gratitude for all that surrounds you – your family, your friends, your home, an abundance of delicious home-cooked food (or amazing take out). I’m exceedingly grateful for all those things too, and I also find myself being thankful forContinue reading “When one person heals, we all heal”

To be a woman

Deep breath…   To be a woman is to be gorgeously complex and radiant in your vulnerability and imperfection.   To be a woman is to experience a wild kaleidoscope of emotions on any given day.

What are you trying to prove?

Lately I’m noticing that many people are on a constant unconscious quest to prove exactly the opposite of what they want to be true. There’s a tendency to stack up all the evidence that supports the belief that you suck, that you’re broke, that it’s not working, that the world is a dangerous place…  Continue reading “What are you trying to prove?”
