Believe, and take comfort in your incompetence.

This weekend I spent a lot of time getting organized, putting things in their place and preparing for the next few weeks of certain uncertainty. I prepped my new day-timer anticipating the oodles and oodles of to-dos, calls to make and tasks to complete. I am a self-declared task master and to-do lists don't worry me, what does have me a bit on edge is the balance. Work-Life balance is a myth and... I know that work-work-work-life...

Cross my fingers and…

  Cross my fingers and... I put my beautiful (albeit, total whack-job) children to bed and we are warm and fed and I feel blessed. I don't use that word often...(me and deities aren't really close) and yet that is the word that best describes how I am feeling right now. I am about to step into a role at work where I will be connecting directly with people who are living in poverty and I...

Cheers to a Crazy Awesome (and little F’d up) Year!!

Holy crap that was a seriously crazy year!!! And not for the reasons that you can see on social media.

My daughter learned how to read and she loves math. My...

Did you know we all have a superpower?

I discovered my superpower this week, yesterday actually... In a way it was challenging and beautiful...   The universe has begun to align the pieces that I have been setting my intention on. The challenge was accepting all that was laid before me. I have known for a while now that I want to give more time and energy to my coaching business, that I want to be present and show up for not only myself,...

What winning feels like…a parenting adventure.

  This is quick story about the amazing littles in my life because well...they, along with their Dad, are the reason I write and pretty much the reason I do everything... A short time ago Dave was home (awesome and rare) and as we sat in our post-pasta dinner glow, (which really means...sipping red wine and stinking like garlic) the girls decided they wanted to race (best pre-bedtime activity ever!!) We have an unusually long...

How Art Works For Me

Every week I take the time to sit down to write and I am always heavily influenced by what is going on in my life. This week is not much different other than my world being slowed down by bacteria and much-needed rest. Along with fluids and movies I had the chance to showcase my art for the first time in real life. Since then I have been feeling inspired to share a little of...

Where the magic happens… (hint: it takes a little vulnerability)

Right at that moment when you think you should give up and quit, if you can find the strength to push through, that is when the magic happens!  Maybe that is what was happened to me. A short time ago, I felt like I had won the lottery and I saw great things coming my way. Then, I hit a big wall and found myself screaming at my children, (like that blood curdling shit that people might...

This is my REAL life…I swear!

  What does being REAL mean to you? I have been thinking a lot about that since I asked my Facebook friends for some help in naming myself as a coach. Many of them referred to my ability to be real (which I am elated about), and it started me thinking...What is it about me that others find real? I think it's the swearing! Fuck Shit Fuck :) I don't mean that swearing is what makes...

I am Manifesting the Shit out of this…

I had no idea what I didn't know when I didn't know it...duh...of course. It is actually not a secret at all that the shit the The Secret talks about, the Law of Attraction and about manifesting the life you want by focusing specifically on what you really want, is real, and yet for a very long time it wasn't to me. I had no idea that energy follows intention and that action, no matter how...

Your Art Can’t Afford to Make You Money!

Your Art can't afford to make you money...she is timid and delicate deserving of a pedestal. Although she is tough enough to rip your heart out and serve it to you...treat her right and she will care for your soul all the days of your life. Abuse her and put her to work and she will turn on you, run and hide until she feels it is safe for her to return. We are each...
