“It was like an out-of-body experience…”

A few nights ago I could barely hang on... And as I reflected on the experience while journaling the next morning, I tried to pinpoint the trigger that set me off and I decided that there were a number of things that caused me to fall apart. Let me set the stage for you... The morning before I had had the opportunity to connect with some fabulous women (some of which may be reading this...

Anger! Resentment! Disbelief! The world was set against me…

For a very long time I felt deep anger at the idea that the world was set against me. I could only see all of the things I could never have. Money. Travel. Clothes. Health. I worked really hard at making everything right and making people happy, in hopes that things would turn around. And yet time and time again I felt like no one gave a shit or appreciated how hard I worked to...

I am also preparing for a Facebook Live I will be doing on Tuesday that walks people through my e-book Stuck to Start: 5 Steps to get from where you are to where you want to be. I did a pretty good job at writing posts and creating content that...

How do we remember music? Why is it easier?

Do you remember music easily? Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. I am actually pretty good with lyrics and keeping the beat although I wouldn't say my singing voice is going to get me any time in the spotlight. Then there are interesting musical incidents like the one that happened recently. While I was driving home from work...mentally preparing for 20 days off in a row, the radio was playing the "all request lunch hour"...

What to do when doubt takes up residence…again!

Every once and while I think I've got this whole "being authentic" thing figured ... I mean I am an Elements of Authenticity expert right?!? Then life... well... life throws me a curve ball and I begin to seriously doubt myself...maybe just to see if I am paying attention. Well guess what? I'm paying attention! What I have come to understand is that being authentic does NOT mean being without doubt or fear or anxiety....

Just when you think they aren’t looking…

So yesterday I sat in awe of my child (once again) as she showed me around Barbie's house, that she recently "re-modelled", and as we toured from room to room (yes she has a frickin' Barbie house with a shit-ton of rooms...I can't decide if that makes me a good parent or a bad feminist...but that's for another post...anyway...) As she shared with me where "Mommy The Doctor" and "Daddy The Super Cool King", who...

How Epic Failures Turned Into The Happy Handlettering Art Shop

Over the past few weeks, Happy Handlettering (meaning I) experienced a series of epic failures! I have learned so much and what I think is most important is that I have realized that I knew so little. As part of my grand vision I have a deep desire to not only be a full-time Elements of Authenticity Coach, I also want to fill every day with art, creating, learning and sharing. The pull to share...
