Most likely it was one of your favorites too.
I’ve decided that now that my granddaughter is four, it’s time to bring out some of the longer, more meaningful books that my kids loved. I haven’t had a chance to read it to her yet, but reading it again for the first time in many years, I realized that “becoming real” is all about why I became a Life Coach.

Just because you find yourself living that “unexpected life” by no choice of your own doesn’t mean you don’t have permission to make changes and find the gifts in the “unexpected.” Yes, it feels unfair and your soul is ripe with questions.
I love the way Melanie Dale puts it: ”Picture yourself getting on a roller coaster. Part of the ride is waiting in line for a crazy long time. You’re sunburned and annoyed and the person behind you smells like the bottom of a garbage can.read more
A sacred day.
The day you were born.
It was the sweetest day of my life. I remember your tiny, delicate facial features, your whispery sounds. I remember looking into your soulful, blue eyes for the first time, your first smile that almost never left your face.read more
I saw three R’s
It was early morning while meditating. Most often, insights and guidance come as whispers or a sense, this morning it was a picture of three R’s.
What does that mean? I’ve learned not to be too quick to brush things off so, I just sat with the three R’s and pondered as they kind of danced around in something like hazy shadows.
They slowly emerged to reveal the full words they stood for. As if I were watching a power point, one word at a time.read more
I didn’t know I was holding back. That’s what I used to do.
I’ve worked so hard, prayed, learned so much, sought advice, stepped out in courage revealing the soul parts of me, but sharing my light with the world has not shone as bright as I know it’s meant to.
I’m passionate about it, that’s why I’m a Life Coach. But come to find out, I’m still playing small.
Certain beliefs are creviced into my brain much deeper than I’d realized, and my soul is still breaking ties with them.read more
If you know me or have followed me at all, I talk a lot about the vast difference between my life before and my life after. My life before losing my daughter, Tina, and my life after. It’s like being transported into another world, a different galaxy. It is one of the most difficult things to put words to. I’ve described it as being like getting Lasik on your eyes, walking on pavement or sand, body movement in water or out of water.read more
The thing is – we may have never met but I know you.
You know there is So Much More.
But – You find yourself living a much different life than you’d dreamed of.
You feel ungrateful for wanting So Much More.
You sacrifice yourself to care for those you love.
You default to saying what is expected instead of speaking your heart and truth.
You’re often depleted, spiritually, emotionally and physically.
You rarely do the things you love.
You live by have-to / supposed-to.
You feel guilty for feeling resentment about the have-to’s.
Now, you feel trapped but believe you need permission to change your life.
I know you. I was you.read more
They are always about us.
It happens every day, but recently, someone I love was completely ambivalent about something I said that was important to me. They had no desire or reason to respond. What I had said didn’t matter and was stupid and even irritating.
That was my story. Within seconds I had made it up in my head.
Come to find out, it was fiction.read more
In recent months, I’ve made some major shifts in the way I think about prolonging life vs living life. It started last summer when I read Christiane Northrup’s book, Goddesses Never Age, right before my trip to Greece. Perfect, right. This would make me a Greek Goddess.
The truth is, there came a certain point when the aging process seemed to be accelerating a little to fast for my liking. Of course my body’s going to change as I grow older. No one expects their twenty year old body to be the same all their life.read more
How do you feel, right here, right now?
Is it easy for you to immediately identify your feelings? How much thought do you have to put in to accessing your core feeling in any given moment?
For most of us, we have to stop and think for a moment, or even longer if you’re resisting a given feeling. And very often, we don’t even know we are in resistance.
Can I ask you to give yourself the gift of feeling?
Let me explain:read more
