Let’s get super honest right off the top. Parenthood is the hardest job you will ever do. Whether you are a mother, a father, a step parent, an adoptive grandparent, an adoptive parent… whatever your entry point to parenthood is, it is the most challenging, most transformational, most real work that any of us will … Continue reading Making Space for the Hard Stuff
Commit to a word count that feels easy. The point here is to develop the habit. Make it one of the first things you do in your day. I make sure it is on my agenda because I am an absolute freak about crossing things off. It feels good to me to cross an item … Continue reading Just Sit Down & Write Already.
We all fail. Heroes fail. That is part of life. I failed yesterday, in a manner of speaking. I have been hard at work on getting some serious habits in place that will support me in growing my writing practice, getting published more, growing my business, and ultimately making more money. Let's face it, I … Continue reading Failure Alchemy
I am coming to believe that learning how to show up is a part of growing up. Now, I am one who believes that we are never done growing up. Investigating showing up this week has uncovered some interesting notions for me, because we don’t really see ourselves until we actually look. Kind of like … Continue reading Grow Up & Show Up

You've lost it. And then ten minutes later you feel awful and guilty because you've said things … Continue reading Tame Your Triggers
It’s all about self care these days. Making your quality of life the top priority. Mani’s, pedi’s, vacations, date nights, me time, and self help books. Here’s the thing though, it is really easy to misunderstand this as making everything all about you and your well being. Expecting others to put your well being before … Continue reading This Blog is All About YOU.
When I work with clients, my number one healing recommendation is learning how to relax and cultivating a daily practice of energy relaxation. Not blobbing in front of the TV, not drinking a glass of wine. Relaxing. It is honestly the practice of doing NOTHING. Modern mom's have a hard time with that. I am … Continue reading My Relaxation Habit.
So many of us are deeply familiar with anxiety. That feeling in your belly of butterflies, and fire. That fogginess in your head. The tingles in your skin. The flutters in your heart and the racing in your mind. And the not wanting to be feeling it, and willing yourself to feel something, anything, else. … Continue reading On Anxiety
There is so much talk on the inter webs about how to raise our kids. Do this, don’t do that, and for god’s sake NEVER DO THAT. So much judgement, division, stress and anxiety. It’s no wonder that most moms I talk to feel alone, isolated, stressed and believe they are failing their kids in … Continue reading How Our Kids Raise Us
