Christmas Expectations

Most newsletters sent out today or tomorrow are usually wonderfully inspiring and ethereal. That is such a gift.   However, I would like to provide another approach. As a psychotherapist in private practice for 25+ years, this time of year – November 15th to January 15th, extra appointments were always the norm…. Why? Expectations. It is true that this time of…

Your Call To An Expanded Purpose

Have you noticed that if you followed your heart when you began working, or perhaps chose to listen to your heart later, that at some point you still may have found yourself surviving rather than living? You were doing what you loved and chose yet somehow it didn’t seem to fit any more?  What a gift…  That happens because you…

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…

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…

St. Patrick’s Day It Is

Growing up in South Boston, Massachusetts, Saint Paddy’s Day was a day in which all the schools and businesses, other than the bars and package stores, were closed. The annual St. Paddy’s Day parade was a celebration of the Irish heritage Southie folks were so proud to claim. The standard activity included the Kennedy’s in their convertible waving at all…

Another Day in Paradise

The adventure of life is quite a thing. For me, it means ever-questioning, ever-looking within to see if I am in alignment with my values, with me, and with my purpose. As a businesswoman, I try to stay clear on what that purpose is. Why am I here? What good have I come here to do? Does my business reflect…

A Life Well-Lived

Here we are, in the midst of winter, snow, and Covid. Just another day of living in New England… My virtual assistant reminds me to do the newsletter, several potential new clients need a half-hour introduction session, I need to do my work-out routine, and the emails keep piling up.  Just another day in the life of a very blessed…
