I LOVE stationery. Beautiful papers, a great pen, a gorgeous journal, even a stylish pencil box, all have me feeling warm and fuzzy. I'm old enough to remember when Trapper Keepers launched and I couldn't imagine a better invention! Today, I don't need a single thing a...

The last couple years have been transformative for me. The short version is, a lot of things had to fall away in order for me to evolve to my personal next level. Along the way it's been a roller coaster to say the least and I was forced (aka uber-motivated) to find su...

Recently, I was listening so someone tell her friend a story about something that, in her view, was a bad experience. It was a crowded area (I wasn't trying to eavesdrop), so I couldn't really make out the details, but there was a lot of hand gesturing and "OMG" faces...

Lately, I’ve been hearing more and more about the concept of “self-care,” so I will go so far to say that it’s “in.” How I have seen it defined is in the spirit of taking care of yourself so you may take care of others - “put your own mask on first,” as the safety spee...

This is my birthday week and as such, I think about it as my personal new year. This one comes complete with a new moon for setting intentions, and yes, I believe in moon cycles. A bit. I believe in everything a little, and some things more than others. What I know for...

We all know we are supposed to be able to bounce back, to stay positive and optimistic in the face of a disappointment or setback, to "think our way back." But what if we can't? What do we do when we can't forgive, or let it go, or dust ourselves off and put one foot i...

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the expectations other people have of us and how they show up in big and little ways. These well-intended folks tend to fall into groups like “family,” “close friends,” “people from your past,” “work peers,” “hobby friends” and mor...

I was talking to a client this week about something seemingly simple like her daily schedule and I made a suggestion to tweak it a bit. In my view, the tweak was trivial, but in hers it touched the “should nerve.”

(Let’s agree to suspend the obvious truth that I am not...

I'm on a complete high as I write. Coming off of a great weekend of giving my workshop surrounded by old friends and new who came with open hearts!! And then there was the long weekend, getting to know people on a deeper level, sprinkled with travel to new places. #bli...
