This blog is about my reaction to words we run into every day. At different times in our lives even simple words mean different things. My wish is that when you read my blog you feel something you did not feel before and motivate yourself toward something new.

You were born with a voice. Your voice gives you the power to communicate what you want from and to every space you enter. You transfer that power to a gadget when you type or text what you want to say.  Don’t get me wrong, I love these gadgets because they enable me to be […]

This is a big month for most parents. It is the beginning of a new school year for the children we manage on a daily basis and many words apply: binders, tryouts, loose-leaf, lunch money, schedule, test, homework, snack, bus stop, pencils. Those words, along with the sound of crickets, are a reminder of how […]

Two weeks ago I put my children on a plane to spend the weekend with my brother and sister-in-law in Minneapolis. Their early flight meant we had to be at the airport by 5am.  I also had a very important meeting that was months in the planning that started at 9am.  Their flight would take […]

There are so many spaces in a day where we hear what we are doing wrong and how we can do better.  The news, social media and our own heads generate lists of how we can improve. As those lists grow, so does the drain on our energy field. Let’s renew, celebrate what we are […]

When he sang Frank Sinatra’s classic That’s Life, I felt like I was hearing it for the first time. These lyrics were resonating with me 48 years after Frank first sang them. That’s life. […]

This word conjures up all kinds of thoughts and emotions. Many of us feel love, warmth and comfort, while others feel conflict, duty and guilt. I have felt all of these from the moment I became a mother. Over time, “Mother” has transcended tradition.  In some homes, there are two moms, a dad or a […]

Recently, a coaching client of mine enjoyed valuable closure after a stressful few months with a colleague. It was such a powerful outcome I wanted to share how he got there because often people feel like they are in a negative environment indefinitely. In life, we are confronted with people who are NOT the yin […]

Are you getting the feedback you crave? I’m not talking about “Likes” or “New Connections” in social media.  I’m talking about hearing what you need to hear in order to know if your message is having a positive impact on your audience. A coaching client recently said to me, “People think I’m intense.”  I asked […]

The winter of snowstorms. The shoveling & the de-icing so we can move about and through our home space. On this last storm effort,  my only shovel broke and I was out of salt.  More snow and ice were expected overnight so I set out to Home Depot for supplies.  As I walked into the […]

I wanted something I thought I could never get. For over 25 years, I’ve wanted the iconic “Wrap” dress by Diane Von Furstenberg.  It was a staple fashion piece worn by beautiful women, its popularity and liberating statement landing magazine covers in both fashion and news media.  Unfortunately, no matter what my weight/size/shape, every time […]
