I’m Ready

“Tell the negative committee that meets in your head to sit down and shut up.” – Unknown I’m ready. Ready to take active steps to rid myself of the feelings of isolation and unworthiness. It’s quite a task to undertake, but I’m ready. As I begin to make changes to my habits of checking in […]

Where Did I Go?

It has been quite a while since I’ve posted. I’ve had quite a ride this past year, dealing with some health issues that took my attention. I feel so much better, stronger and have learned a lot on my path back from what was, for some time, a pretty scary place. One of the biggest […]

Connect To Now

NOW can be an alarming demand — especially if someone’s hollering at you. NOW can be something that’s an immediate action item to prevent harm to others or yourself.

YES! Assignment, August 3, 2015

Did you wake up thinking “Yes, I’m doing this today” or “No, I am dreading this”?  Be bold and take a step toward turning your dreaded “I have to” into a liberating “I get to” all through the power of YES! Avoiding an important conversation? Write it down, then practice saying it. If it’s a […]

Connect To Now

Pause for a moment. Take a deep breath. Did you feel the air tickling the hair on your arm? Does it take you to a sandy beach with azure water lapping at your toes? Or is it an arctic frost that’s making you uncomfortably alert? Count to a slow “60” with your eyes closed and […]
