How Self-Aware Are You?

My email subscribers received this same question a few weeks ago: How self aware are you? When I tuned in and intuitively asked what would best serve any of you amazing readers, I heard loud and clear to deliver a similar message here.  This topic is so important because it is often our inner blindspots

Get Curious

Today you’ll find me curious about pretty much anything: my inner dialog, my procrastination, my dog’s behavior, my habits, my intuitive nudges and physical feelings, my judgments, any human I encounter and much more. I wasn’t always this way. I tended to be a bit of a know-it-all. It was a persona I needed to

What’s Your Trajectory

I recently read an email in which the head of a company that I really admire talked about her struggles with addiction. It caught my eye because I was surprised to hear this from someone so successful and from such a healthy habits focused family.  That is my judgment and the judgment of the world

Energy Exchange

Before I dive into this month’s column, I have a confession: It’s inspired by a commercial aired during a recent football game. I generally hate commercials and usually ignore them, but a reminder of one of the laws of thermodynamics caught my ears and kept me thinking. This law states that energy cannot be created

One Small Change

As you read this article you’re likely in as much disbelief as I am that it’s 2024. The end of 2019 feels like yesterday, yet the pandemic feels decades away and yet still very much here. Einstein had a hunch that time was not linear. Life has a funny way of proving him right.  The

The Gifts in Embracing Discomfort

A few weeks ago I jotted down the intuitive nudge I received on this month’s column. Today, as I sit down to write and edit, I’m realizing the irony of this December headline. December for many is a season of gift giving, and I’m being guided to show how embracing discomfort is indeed a wonderful

What’s Ready to Be Let Go

As I was walking my dog this morning I was struck by how beautiful the fallen leaves were, as if each was placed by hand. These ones were various shades of purple. Trees seem to innately know that when we let go of what no longer serves us others can enjoy the beauty. They also

Make The Call

I was blessed to live my early years without a lot of technology. We ran amok in the neighborhood without cell phones, an antenna brought local stations to our television, the library was the best Google machine, and we were always surprised to find out who was on the other line when we answered the

One Minute To Feel Into A New Vision

Have you ever had the awareness that a way you’ve always been may not actually get you to where you want to go next in life? Yes, that way got you here, but if you continue to cling to that you’ll likely always be stuck and not get to your next desired destination. Sometimes you

Tiny Adjustments Pack a Big Punch

A few days ago my boyfriend, his mom and I dove into the adventure of laying hexagon tile sheets in his fixer-upper house’s gutted kitchen. Before adhering them to the floor, it was critical to ensure we all felt good with the placement. His house is circa 1920s and most things were either built unevenly

What You Appreciate, Appreciates

Clichés are often clichés for a reason. They ring so true they are stated over and over again. What you appreciate, recognize the full worth of and be grateful for, appreciates, rises in value.  I grew up in a home that was appreciation-less. There was no expressed or shown appreciation, just expectation, competition, nit-picking on

Who’s On Your Personal Board Of Directors?

Working from home and being a solopreneur has many advantages, snuggling with my dog and connecting with my boyfriend on his way home from work are just two of the many freedoms I enjoy. This life I’ve chosen also has many disadvantages. I miss collaborating with my cubicle mates when I’m stuck on an idea

The Art of Prioritization

Recently I had a powerful conversation with my boyfriend that inspired this month’s article. He’s the type of man that goes all in. If a project at work needs finishing, he will work 15-hour days until he’s satisfied it’s complete. He also makes time for me, my doggo, and the kitchen reno he’s knee deep

Savor Your Spring

In last month’s column, I talked about the power of trusting in the magic of winter. But what happens after you practice diligent faith, allow stillness, and do all the hard work needed to get through winter? Yes, being still is hard, especially in a society wired to go go go. What if your spring

The Hidden Magic Of Winter

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what earth does in the winter. If all goes to plan, it makes us amazing snow to frolic in, but it often seems to drag on. This period of stillness has so much going on under the surface.  How do I know this? Trees bud, tulips pop, and

Get Unstuck

How many of you have ever felt stuck in life or a certain area of it? It’s a horrible feeling. When I’ve been in times like that I’ve felt heavy, unclear, hopeless, unsure of where or whom to turn, desperate, frustrated, full of despair, and usually very alone. My hope is that as the year

Find the Joy in the Messy

As I’m writing your hopefully helpful article for the first month of 2023, a snowstorm, cold temperatures and gusty winds swirl around my mom’s house in Illinois.

Do Your Actions Match Your Words?

December’s theme was inspired by my puppy’s beginner training class. He’s already graduated kindergarten, but as I’m a first-time dog mom, the training continues. We were practicing heel around the training room with other dogs of various ages. My trainer noticed that I had the leash slightly taut while also telling my dog, “good boy.”

Acknowledgment Is A Superpower

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the concept of acknowledgment, and how it makes us feel when we’ve been acknowledged by others and when we acknowledge ourselves. The meaning I’ll be using here is, “The action of showing that one has noticed someone or something.” I’m also not talking about the acknowledgment in, for

What Family Story Are You Willing To Shift?

Recently I attended a family reunion on my dad’s side, the first since the pandemic began and since his passing. I was more anxious than hopeful as my mom and I boarded the plane to Vermont. My dad was idolized by many of his 50-some cousins who didn’t want to acknowledge the darker sides of

Honoring The Gift Of A Highly Sensitive Person’s Brain

The Power Of Vision

Today on my run I thought about a lesson my high school cross-country coach taught me. It was on the power of vision. I remember it clearly, it was hot, and I did not want to finish running up the hill that our practice ended on. She sprinted up to me, reminded me I was
