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...

And it's actually a huge relief.

I used to spend a lot of time worrying about how other people judged me.

What I wore, was it appropriate, did it fit right? Did I say too much? Did I say too little? This person must think I’m too intense. And that person must think I’m n...

Don't get in your head about the easy stuff.

My 11 year old son tried scuba diving the other day.

Happy Birthday to me.

Today is my birthday.

I’m 46 years old.

According to all the life expectancy tables, I’m five years past the exact middle of my life. So, literally, over the hill.

But I have to tell you, it doesn’t feel that way to me.

Yes, my metabolism has changed....

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...

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,...

It's about moving toward the person you want to be.

I am at a one day conference on habits.

I’ve never been to a conference like this. All my other conferences were either medical conferences or Wall Street conferences. This is a much different vibe. But today’s has much...
