A reminder that the "size" of good and bad is all in our heads.

My husband was going through some papers the other day, trying to put our taxes together.

He texted me from his office. Mixed in with some old paperwork, he found one of my first annual reviews from Wall Str...

Bringing giant fears back down to size.

I have to go to the dentist this afternoon.

Not for a cleaning, but to have…a procedure.

The appointment shouldn’t take more than an hour. And its only 15 minutes from my house. Which means this lovely dental adventure shouldn’t tak...

A life without the best is pretty damn great.

I am not the best writer.

I am not the fastest runner in my age group.

I am not the best mom in the world.

I am a middle of the road, middle of the country, midlife working woman, wife, and mother. Indistinguishable, at times,...

And manage your mind in the process.

It’s been a week.

Sometimes guilt is just people pleasing in disguise.

If you’re a certain kind of person (and I am that kind of person), the feeling of guilt can be triggered by the smallest thing.

Not picking your son up from school on a Thursday at 3pm because you are working.

When your...

It's messy (and a little scary) but it works.

My beloved dog, Rosie, almost died last winter.

My sister and I were hiking with her on some trails near my home. I have hiked or snowshoed with her off-leash hundreds of times. As long as we aren’t near any roads, I know she...

But you can learn to do it for yourself.

When I was first promoted on Wall Street, I thought I had it made.
