I’ve been quiet here for a while.

  I’ve been quiet here for a while. For one, I simply haven’t felt like blogging. But the truth is, I’ve gotten more quiet in a lot of life lately. Less talking, more listening. Less pushing, more releasing. I’m meditating more. Opening to expansiveness, wisdom, knowing, beyond the chatter in my head. And doing less […]

Who makes you feel like a rock star?

  I’ve got this friend named Summer. And she makes me feel like a friggin’ rock star. Let’s be real here, being an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart. It takes courage, resolve, resilience and serious faith in yourself and your vision. Which can sometimes be challenging, to say the least. And there’s […]

Happy birthday, my sweet boy.

  Five years ago today, I was cracked open, body and spirit.  After 33 grueling hours of labor, my son finally emerged and I became a mother. Those first few days were raw, full of powerful emotion. A new, expanded sense of love opened me up to a new level of vulnerability and potential heartbreak. I […]

Is work/life balance a myth?

In my many conversations with moms running businesses, there is a term that inevitably comes up — work/life balance. It is usually mentioned with a frustrated sigh, an eye roll or a sheepish expression. It’s at the top of everyone’s list of wants but no one seems to know how to get it. A unicorn, […]

The Closeness of Death

My heart has been particularly tender around death lately. It feels closer than usual. Less abstract. The sudden loss of a family friend (and father of 3) in a freak accident. The death of a girlfriend’s dad, a couple years younger than my own. The passing of an amazing mentor who took exquisite care of herself.   Bowie. Prince. […]

Mess

  On the eve of my first THRIVE workshop, I finished the last of my handouts and fell into bed around 11:30pm. I was just dozing off when Sylvie started to cry. None of the usual tricks were working to get her back to sleep. By 1am, after being in and out of her room […]

No time to meditate?

I’ve grown to love meditating. Most of my waking hours are FULL with constant demands from my kids, my business and the rest of life (not to mention the information overload we are all subjected to). Sinking into the quiet and stillness of meditation feels like slipping into a cozy corner booth for tea with […]

How I ditched the New Years resolutions. And got more productive.

Here we are, one month into 2016. It’s usually around now that my new years resolutions start to fall by the wayside.  And I’m not alone. In 2015, The Washington Post reported that 25% of people give up on their resolutions after only one week and another 20% after a couple months. We could talk about will-power, laziness, what have […]

Craving Ritual

I CRAVE ritual, maybe more than anything else in my life. Ritual is punctuation. It has the power to transform weeks and months that might otherwise feel like a run-on sentence of “same old same old”. It is an opportunity to be mindful. A chance to sloooow life down, which is a major priority for me. And it often feels […]
