Where Do You Find the Reflection of Your Best Self?

Where do you find the reflection of your best self?  When you look in the mirror?  Can we actually see our best self, or is “being your best” just an aspirational thing?  Would you know it if you saw it? Where do you find the reflection of your best self? What I find most often when I look […]

How Can You Anchor Yourself?

T.S. Elliott once wisely said, “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”  As I wriggle back into “normalcy” after vacation adventures in Puerto Rico, I find that I’ve a whole new appreciation for this place I […]

The Magic of Baby Steps

Posted by on Jan 25, 2016 | No Comments

It never ceases to amaze me, how when I look out over the panorama of my life, the biggest obstacles around are those that I’ve put there myself.  It’s almost as if I’ve driven a 4×4 jeep through my muddy pot-holed-filled journey, erecting ‘do-not-enter‘ signs every few yards.  I’m not alone in this unwitting-self-sabotage, I’ve […]

What are the Lessons of Your Life?

As I’m watching my husband bundle up to “battle the elements” for his walk to catch the train on his way to work, I’m reminded of my childhood.  As some of you know, I grew up a world away from where I find myself now (just outside NYC), on a cattle ranch in northwestern Montana.  My dad […]

“We must continue to open in the face of tremendous opposition.  No one is encouraging us to open and still we must peel away the layers of the heart.” – Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche, Tibetan Buddhist master There are books that you read, that reach down and grab you by the soul and shake you, and […]

Bridging Courage

When I was growing up we lived about 10 miles out town (I was a country mouse) and I rode my bike everywhere.  I thought nothing of pedaling the 7 miles each way to my best friend’s house to hang out, when her family moved closer to town.  I did what a kid had to do […]

Are You Committed? Really?

  We went to satisfy nostalgic curiosity.  Having grown up in the 80’s, even though we were raised on opposite ends of the country, my husband and I share memories of big hair, Van Halen, and the Lake Placid Olympics.  So when we found ourselves in upstate NY a few years ago, we seized the […]

More Than Meets the Eye

Every time I lead a session of OnStage Leadership, I’m always astounded by the stories my participants share.  Stories of resilience, endurance, courage, tolerance, patience, heartache, loneliness, regret.  Of a hunger for learning, of kindnesses received, of self discovery.  Stories filled with heroes and villains.  Of joy and pain.  Of wins and losses. So many […]

Are You Feeling Lucky?

We’ve all had them. Those insane days where nothing seems to go as planned.  Your alarm doesn’t go off when it’s supposed to.  You miss your flight.  Your connecting flight is over-booked.  You get lost.  An hour has been added to your already too-long trek to your destination.  You’re low blood-sugar, have a headache, and […]

Possibility Unleashed

Think for a moment about the people who have made the biggest difference in your life. Who pointed you in a new direction? Who gave you that unique opportunity? Who saw something in you, that perhaps you hadn’t even seen in yourself? There are people we meet who seem to magically change the trajectory of […]
