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...

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...

Research says less stick, more carrot will improve performance and get you to your goals.

I used tell myself that I was going to fail every test that I was about to take.

That the A’s that I had received to that point were a fluke. And given my poor study habits and the...

When you're reaching for a goal, you're allowed to go slow.

I am on vacation with my family this week.

It is lovely. As I type this I can hear the ocean and feel the hot sun on my neck.

I used to drag work with me on vacation. Either physically, or mentally. Scroll throug...

Yes, my metabolism has changed....

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,...

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...

Sometimes guilt is just people pleasing in disguise.

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

When your...
