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…

The Joy of Connecting

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!

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

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

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…

To the Future

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…

Letting Go

In preparing for my move to a new home, I discovered that in addition to the normal anxiety, excitement, anticipation, and longing for peace and being settled, there was also the need to let go. To let go of things I never anticipated leaving behind and to things far less tangible as well.  Moving into a home with a dramatically…

Perspective

On occasion I have someone ask: “What does a coach do?” “Is it like therapy?”  The answer is always “yes and no.”  Therapy, as described, is the use of psychological methods, particularly when based on regular personal interaction, to help a person change behavior, increase happiness, and overcome problems.”  Coaching, as described, is a professional relationship that helps people produce…

My Brother-in-Law Died

My beautiful sister who has spent the past 30 years alongside her husband has lost him, and the world has lost a man of amazing humor, goodness, and grace. Listening to the many, many, people Mike has supported over the years as they “walked with Bill” brought tears to the eyes of all of us in attendance at his Celebration…
