Protest

I really don’t want to get too political here, but I am getting pretty tired of people deciding that what NFL players are doing is disrespectful of the flag and veterans. This was never about disrespecting the flag. These people are doing what they are doing in order to draw attention to something that is . . . → Read More: Protest

On hold

I think this blog may be turning into a place for me to rant oh well!

I was just on hold for over 30 minutes. I have several problems with this:

1 – Why am I dumb enough to hang on that long (there are reasons – I really needed an answer, and once you . . . → Read More: On hold

Shame

I love TED talks, and recently found one that really speaks to me. I highly recommend checking out Brene Brown: Listening to Shame. She is a wonderful speaker, and her topic seems really pertinent for so many people (including me). She is a shame researcher – which I had never heard of before, but I . . . → Read More: Shame

Recharge in a Bathtub of Love

I am still on a high from the event I attended last week. It was a celebration of love for two people that I love and admire very much. A & M have been together for almost 10 years, and wanted to celebrate that with people who love and support them; I was very much . . . → Read More: Recharge in a Bathtub of Love

Judgment

Judgment – what a word. I really try to not be judgmental – but it is hard. And then I am judgmental about how judgmental I am – what a vicious circle.

I have been watching Drew Carey’s latest improv show, in which they play a game they call New Choice. Two of them will . . . → Read More: Judgment

Self-care

How is your self-care these days? Are you doing things you need to do for YOU? Are you taking care of yourself?

Considering that I am not only a Life Coach, but that I also present self-care workshops, one would think that I do pretty well with my own self-care. And there are long periods . . . → Read More: Self-care

Where do I belong?

Where do I belong?  What tribe do I belong to?  This is a common question.  I know I ask it often.  And I think it is good to ask it often, because I think we can belong to more than one tribe at once, and we can change tribes as we go through life.

Question #3 – Will this matter in 5 years?

Sometimes we seem to waste a lot of time and energy on decisions that aren’t as big as they seem to be at the moment. Do you ever get stuck in ‘analysis paralysis’ over a decision, only to look back at it a little later to wonder why you agonized over it for so long? . . . → Read More: Question #3 – Will this matter in 5 years?
