Forward

Some of us, as leaders, go through a series of purpose-expressions, a series of careers, as we grow, learn and become more and more of who we are meant  to be.  Others find one avenue immediately after high school or college and stay with that one expression of their vision throughout much of their life. Whichever path you follow is yours, not right or wrong, just yours..

The one core truth we learn, however, is that whatever path we choose, there will be a continuous series of opportunities for growth or stagnation. For living our truth or being in self-betrayal. Choosing leadership, consciously or otherwise, requires that we be ready to grow in order to deal with all the challenges, opportunities, and expansions that happen as our vision takes on a life of its own. That choosing can support compassion, understanding, and a greater leadership skill as those around us go through their process as well.

As leaders, we are challenged at times to decide if we are ready or even want to grow to that next level, to lead at that level, to become even more of who we are.

If you are human, you will at times want to stop, to breath, to reconsider your choices. That is never a failing, or a weakness, rather it is an amazing gift you give yourself. When you have grown significantly, or when it is time to grow significantly,  stopping to catch up with yourself, to integrate all that is happening, is a smart and solid way of strengthening your foundation, your connection to your Spirit,  to your purpose, and to you.

What Are You Connecting With?

I held a one-day intensive this Saturday for the women in my current 10-month Women in Transition program. As happens, a great deal of additional self-awareness and accountability was ever-present for these amazing women who were willing to risk being fully present and thus fully real.  One frame of reference we discussed was, are powerful women in authority really like…

New Life – New Body – New Dream

By Articles, Blog, Transition

It’s a new year – almost a full month in – and that implies for me a new life. In March I have another 10-month program starting for women in transition:  Transitioning into Freedom, Transformation, and Passion (along with power, impact, & purpose.) It is solely the byproduct of my love of transition and recognizing that, for many, transition is…

The Joy of Connecting

By Articles, Blog, Energy, Mindset

The adventure of life is continuously calling us to try new things, take new risks, and come alive in new ways. Nonetheless, it is sooo very easy to get comfortable with patterns, with routines, and even rituals that we create. As an aside, I happen to love rituals, they bring purpose and meaning to specific actions or behaviors. Whereas routines…

What A Life!

By Articles, Blog, Energy, Mindset

If you have been following me, you are aware that I have recently moved. The walls are all painted, the pictures are all hung, all the plants are settling, and the new furniture is in. Now back to my life…  In my meditation each evening, I review my day. In what way did I betray myself today? (Saying yes when…

In Wisdom, An Unknown Adventure Begins

By Articles, Blog, Mindset

As I write this, it’s that time between Christmas, Hanukkah and several other holiday celebrations and New Year’s when many take the time to destress, deprogram, and discern while reviewing 2022 and planning their agenda for 2023.  For me, it is a time also for giving thanks to all those who have followed me throughout the year, those who have…

It’s An Odd World

By Articles, Blog, Mindfulness, Mindset, Values

Have you ever noticed that the most skilled, qualified folks, have a large sense of insecurity or uncertainty about so many things they are not expected to know?  Or that the folks who are just starting out have an amazing sense of all-knowingness?  A theoretical physicist I know will not feel he has accomplished anything until he equals or exceeds…

As a child we have moments when we “know” we are going to have the world all figured out when we get older (like 18 or so), we will find our place in it, and we will know all we need to know. Then we get older…  Reality is a much bigger story and filled with so much more uncertainty….

To the Future

By Articles, Blog, Energy, Mindset, Transition

Most of the notices we are seeing now remind us to be thankful for all that we have and certainly we do have great abundance. A frequent saying I have been using lately is a reminder that most of my problems are definitely “first world problems.” Waiting in long lines to make purchases, an order not arriving on time, not…
