Allow That One Word to Find You…

2017 has arrived… But what about 2016? Did your resolutions get lost somewhere along the way? Your past does not have to define the present. Motivation science outlines why it is difficult to keep resolutions, but offers hope for setting achievable goals (see linked article). But what about a different way to ring in the […]


Lights of Hope…

I have noticed many more Christmas lights decorating the outside of homes and businesses this year…maybe I am just more aware. Net lights, bulb lights, white lights, multicolored lights, flashing lights, and my personal favorite this season – projector lights- the easy way to decorate…lighting up whole buildings and homes and even surrounding trees and […]


Dryness and Blossoming…

I was recently given a Christmas Cactus as a gift. Not knowing much about the plant I did some research to learn how best to care for it. Interestedly, I learned that in order to get the fullest, healthiest blooms one should stop watering the plant after October allowing the soil to become dry. When the soil […]


Personal Patina and the Wisdom We Wear…

I’ve been given some lovely silver trays, bowls, and serving pieces that have been passed down through generations. This time of the year I begin to think how I would love to use them for holiday dinners…but then I think of the polishing…and the polishing…and the polishing and then it never really looking like the […]

Sharing Words of Wisdom…

I have a quote board in my office. Each week I write on the board an inspirational quote that has struck me. It is hung on the wall directly across from my couch and I have enjoyed seeing my regular clients checking the board when they come to session. They often remark with comments such […]


Over the Moon Excited…

Have you ever been over the moon excited?! That jittery in your stomach, can’t stop smiling, running on what seems like multiple cups of coffee adrenalin, not so sure your feet are fully touching the ground over the moon excitement? SO that was my state yesterday with the birth of my first grandchild…a beautiful granddaughter! […]


Leaving the Rat Race to Sit in Your Own Skin…

I often hear from clients… “I just have to get out of this rat race!” What is the mad scramble in your world? What is that fierce competition that keeps you in a constant hustle and bustle frame of mind? That rush, rush, rush that can leave you numb and tired and wondering what is the purpose of […]
