Victim much? I’ll share mine if you share yours…

May 8, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  As I spend more time on this internal journey to get back to myself, I start to see where my shadows are. The hard crusty parts I need to scrape away. The darkness that I need to shed light on. The twists and turns that I need to follow to get to the truth…the sometimes very hard to admit truth. Shining light on the …

To any woman in some darkness right now

March 21, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin    This post is for any woman who is in a dark and challenging place right now because she has dared to begin to listen to her own voice, to hear her own desires, to voice her deep truths and to want to become the writer of her own story. Sometimes, this journey is a choice we make. And other times, it is put upon …

The sisterhood, coffee talk and the depth of the feminine…

January 31, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  Every once in a while, my brain wants to vomit out my thoughts in a messy but heartfelt way. Trigger finger, really. Editing be damned! Re-reading tossed aside! Grammar begone!  (Actually, you got me on that one because I can’t have any grammatical mistakes, I just CAN’T!) So, here goes. The sisterhood, coffee talk and the depth of the feminine (should we choose to …

Extend your after-glow….miaow…..!

January 24, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  By after-glow, I mean that super-delicious feeling that comes after you’ve done something you are proud of. A first. Or a really good. Or just something you dived into, even though you were terrified. Or anything that you did (or that was done to you….mmmm….) that made you. feel. good. I’ve found that I can either cut the legs off my after-glow so it …

Do you ever feel like your brain is your enemy?

January 12, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  When I talk about helping women to live more in their bodies and less in their heads, I always get a big YES response. And it’s the less in their heads part that really resonates with many of us. We might not know what it is to live in our bodies but we sure as heck know what it’s like to live in our …

The warrior who fights for everyone else but herself

January 5, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  (I can’t believe that I had actually forgotten about Xena, Warrior Princess for a few years. Never again!!) Do you recognize yourself in this? The warrior who fights for everyone else but herself? We rage at our schools, our daycares and our camps to demand better treatment, better food, better playgrounds, better resources for our kids. We join petitions and send emails to complain …

My dream friend, Oprah and being full of yourself

December 13, 2016

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin    There is an interview that Brene Brown does with Oprah on her Living Brave interview series. I want to share it with you, quite simply, because it is entirely engrossing. I have watched it twice and will likely watch it again. This time, with wine! I wish that Brene Brown was my friend. She may be, one day. I would start by saying …

What’s hiding in your body?

December 1, 2016

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  One of the really big changes I’ve made over the last five years is to feel. I mean, FEEL. Really feel. Feel it all. The good, the bad and the ugly. And from where I am right now, I can look back and see how much I wasn’t feeling before. I can see the rage that I shoved aside because, frankly, I thought it …

The dark side of motherhood – I see you

November 11, 2016

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  I wrote this blog post after feeling very resentful about having my work pushed to the bottom of the list (sigh, again) and shuffling into my role as mother and housewife. I was so desperate to hear my husband say he got it, he understood, he felt my pain, he knew how amazing I was, he couldn’t believe how I do it all, he …

New York, a book title I can’t write here and total ramblings…

September 22, 2016

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  I really tried hard to put all of these ideas into some sort of order but it just hurt my brain too much so I decided to go freestyle and just spew thoughts and moments onto the page and walk away, satisfied. Hopefully, the satisfaction isn’t just for me and that somewhere in this mess of a blog, there is a nugget of shivers …
