Guilt and Shame

I’m a TV girl. When I moved into my new town a few years ago and a very nice girl invited me to her book club I said, “ummm….do you have a TV club?” I also like movies. Anything on a screen is up there on my list of “let’s do it.” I didn’t read […]

Happiness Isn’t Easy

Wanna know what’s easy? Looking in the mirror and noticing what you don’t like. Worrying about what could go wrong. Noticing all the things that aren’t how you thought they would be at this point in your life, and then feeling bad about it. Blaming other people or other things when you feel bad, or […]

What I Teach and Why – Part II

According to Matt Miller at the Washington Post, “As many as 100 million Americans live in households today that are earning less than their parents did at a similar age. And this is happening well before we feel the full impact of global economic integration with rising economies like India and China.” Matt Miller might […]

Show Me How Big Your Brave Is

Sara Bareilles sings that line in my favorite part of one of my favorite songs, as I’m sure you know. And it’s what I want you to think about today and here’s why.

Raising Kids is Not a Marathon OR a Sprint. It’s a Ragnar

Connection is a Thought – What a Relief!

Connection is an important part of our human experience. Thanks to researchers with good intent but clearly no compassion who locked lonely monkeys in cages decades ago, we know that physical touch is almost as important as food and air. More recently through much more humane and fascinating studies, we know that emotional connection is […]

What I Teach and Why – Part I

What I Teach and Why If you’ve never heard of Life Coaching, or you’ve heard of it but still couldn’t answer a question about it if you found yourself on Cash Cab, today is your lucky day. By the way if you do end up on Cash Cab give a shout out to my husband… […]

Are You Numbing Yourself to Happiness?

I used to think that people who engaged in numbing behaviors were people who have unhealthy addictions to things like drinking, drugs or gambling. It wasn’t until I learned more about this topic that I realized everybody, no matter how disciplined or healthy, engages in numbing at times, and the impact it has on our […]
