“Is this the very most important thing I should be doing with my time and resources right now?”
― Greg McKeown
Still the book that I'm digging into with both hands, Greg McKeown's Essentialism continues to reveal new treasures on each page.
Here are some emotions that came up for me already this holiday season:

For some of us, this could be the most important permission slip of all. Feeling worthy- taking your power and owning the fact that you belong- can be one of the most important actions we take in life. One of the most important choices we make.

“What if we stopped celebrating being busy as a measurement of importance? What if instead we celebrated how much time we had spent listening, pondering, meditating, and enjoying time with the most important people in our lives?”
― Greg McKeown, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
Celebrate the moments that really matter, with the people you adore.
Everything else can wait.
In my last post, I shared my gift guide of things I love & hoped you might love too.
Now, I'm sharing with you a much more important list: my Un-Gift Guide. We take a lot of time considering what we should buy, and adding to our lists, and feeling ever more obligated to do more, be more, have more. May I suggest that you spend at least half as much time editing your list and consciously removing items that don't bring you joy?
I recommend you don't buy: Continue reading →
When I'm walking along the path of life, feeling my way through things, making decisions, writing, coaching, living… sometimes I won't be looking where I'm going and will slam myself right into a Big, Hairy Fear.
Diana, Herself by my mentor Martha Beck was the impetus for my “Live by Inspiration” change in life. It also made complete sense when Martha explained via FB Live that this book is the mirror of what's going on in our world right now- right down to the man who ran against a woman for president. (Really- this is a MUST READ.) This is the first in a trilogy- read this one so you're ready when the next one comes out! (We can stand in line together.) Continue reading →
Challenge the way you've always done things. The way you move through life. The way you move when you wake up in the morning. The way you move when you brush your teeth, shower. The way you move when you talk to your love. The way you move when you're angry. The way you move when you're joyous.
Pay attention to how you've always done things.
And if it serves you, change it.
Choose how you want to move- and embody that new self.
I want to share with you an email from a friend of mine. What she shares is helpful, especially during the holiday season when many of us are working hard to stay conscious and loving. Continue reading →
Jess texted me the other day with an SOS… “I feel like I’m going to lose my mind if I continue…” “My intuition tells me…” “But the rational part of me says…”
I texted back, “FEAR = THE PATH”
We hopped on the phone for a coaching call.
Within a few minutes, I could hear the calm in her voice returning, and then excitement building. She went from “can’t! So stuck!” to “I can actually do this, this is so possible”
I helped her get from FEAR to FIERCE.
The next day, she texted, “SO MUCH big shift today!!!” and shared all the HUGE steps she had already taken.. in one day!
I work with many women who are smart, hardworking, go-getters, who have huge hearts and great ideas, who want to make a change in the world and make the world a better place, who want to have fun doing it, and make a living- even a “thriving” doing it.
And when they get stuck, they call me. Continue reading →
