The Joy Factor

Many women are desperately searching “how to” these days. Frustrated because so many other women make things like balance, wellness, fun, peace, joy, wealth, etc. look so easy and yet they haven’t a clue what it is they are missing to find and hold on to the similar lifestyle or feelings. So where is the disconnect here, ladies? I believe it is the unclear “Joy Factor.” It is so hard for today’s gutsy gals to stop and go the extra mile for themselves. Nurturers by design, putting us first can seem, well, selfish. But let’s face it, without carving...

A Two 2 Step Process to Avoiding Unsettled Feelings

Don’t be Afraid to Feel It When it comes to emotions, I believe we are sometimes taught to “let go” too quickly.  Trust me, I am a firm believer of letting go, shedding what is no longer working, moving on, moving past something, and focusing on the "right now" by being fully present, but what if we are moving too quickly through something?  What if falling into the trap of letting go too quickly is really equating to avoidance? I believe you have to feel the pain, the agony, and pressure, the hurt, the sickness, the dread, and the...

When Surrender is the Only Answer

A Bigger Conversation Recently I woke up to some devastating news, which turned out to be breaking national news. To a stranger, the news would appear to be painful, heart wrenching and even may have caused some anger.  When I looked at the person’s photo being blasted on the news and social media feeds I realized it was my high-school sweetheart  - we had dated throughout my entire high-school years and, while we had some small break-ups in between, we were certainly an item. This man was facing the loss of his son because of an accident coupled with judgment, criticism,...

Two False Perceptions of Leadership

Time to Squash this Now…. Being a leader in your own business or in your workplace is certainly no joke.  Accepting the role as a “leader” means you have taken responsibility to uphold certain duties, deadlines, outcomes, changes, ethics, values and forward movement.  You have become personally responsible for progress, development, coaching and mentoring. I am a leader. I have been a leader for well over fifteen years and over these years, I have come across different masks I have had to wear.  I think the biggest mask I wore and the biggest false illusion I carried for years...

Can Too Much Clarity Be a Bad Thing?

I have personally struggled with trying to squash the clarity monster. I would push my desires, my work, my writing, and everything in between away merely because I was engulfed in the illusion that clarity creates.  I would start to write or start to begin a launch just to kick it the side when a little doubt entered my mind.  I found myself listening and watching other like-minded professionals and one common message seemed to be clarity + a defined niche.  I am the first one to tell you that as soon as I became lost in the cesspool...

Is She Your Real Mom?

The word “real” never had any significant impact on my life until I became a stepmom 17 years ago. It was then when the word actually became a label and part of the native language of the typical blended family. Questions like: Is that your real mom? Do you live with your real mom or your real dad? Do you have to ask your real mom? Are they your real kids? Is that your real daughter? It was a tough association to have to worth through because, after all, this was my “real” life and the love I had...

Chasing Your Dreams

You have everything you need right this moment… Elizabeth Gilbert reminded me of something so vital to the health of any dream during her latest podcast. She said that we are not chasing our dreams. Our dreams are chasing us. This is so wise and it is what makes up our divine design. The Internal Flames! Something is burning inside of you for a reason. You were meant to step out to share and build whatever it is that continues to call your name at the best times and at the not so great times. BUT what do we generally...

3 Savvy Secrets for Today’s Step-Mom

Are you a step-mom who is simply surviving and you would much rather be thriving in your role? I understand. Being a step-mom is no easy walk in the park. As a veteran step-mom, I wasted plenty of years paralyzed with the disease to please. I had no idea what my role was supposed to look like, how I was supposed to act, and in what way I needed to “show up” in my stepdaughters’ lives. I was over-obligated, overwhelmed, and I was weighed down by the common pitfalls commonly seen in today’s blended families. This was cause for...
