Otherwise it will choose problems that can't be solved.

I was trying hard not to lose my sh*t this morning.

It takes a lot for me to lose my cool at this stage of my life. I have a lot of good mental tools that I use to shift perspective when the unexpected happens. And...

I’m standing at the precipice of a choice.

Anyone else making a decision? A big decision or a little decision. Sometimes it’s not the size that matters. Sometimes the small choices feel exactly the same as the big ones. Terrifying.

There are two paths that I can take. Bo...

Recognize your power to choose.

I remember the first time that Jennie Barrett invited me over to her house.

We had been in school together for years, Jennie and I. And obviously I knew a lot about her. She was dating one of the cutest boys and was a top player on the lac...

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.

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...

Start with something less scary - curiosity.

I was talking with a friend of mine last week about a midlife career change.

She was feeling overwhelmed.

She has been a successful accountant for many years. She works in a lucrative part of the accounting industry and has a g...

Stop pondering ten different goals.  Find one that resonates for you.  

Six years ago, I found myself with more flexibility than I’d had in a long time.

I had left my full time job to do consulting. I still had young children. I still had to do a lot of networking a...

Saying Yes to everything is keeping you stuck.

I spent two hours yesterday in a meeting that I didn’t want to attend. Plus I drove there and back. And paid for parking.

Have you ever done something like that?

A parent from your kid’s school asks you to make something for...

Don't worry about the perfect choice.  It doesn't exist.

My cousin lives in a charming old house.

It has a big glassed in area in the back. She keeps lots of plants back there. Her cat spends most of the day in this greenhouse area, sunning itself next to the potted fig...
