What’s Your Anchor?

Posted by on Mar 2, 2015 | No Comments

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.”  Last week, as I wriggled back into “normalcy” after our wondrous adventures in Costa Rica, I find that I’ve a whole new appreciation […]

What Does It Mean About You?

Posted by on Feb 12, 2015 | One Comment

  Have you ever thought about what determines the way you define yourself and the choices you make? I remember when I was in college studying theatre, the only career option that was discussed was becoming a professional actor.  Yes, I get that we were studying theatre, but in a profession in which only 2% […]

On a Quest For Flexibility

Posted by on Jan 26, 2015 | No Comments

What’s coming up for me this morning, as I sit down to write, knowing that a 30-year storm is aiming itself at my corner of the world, is that flexibility is not my strength.  I would love to tell you that I’m great at being flexible – but alas, that would be a big fat fib, so […]

Making it Safe to Soar

Posted by on Dec 8, 2014 | No Comments

“(He’s given us) a stable ground to fly from.  To just jump off.  To feel…because you need feel that that kind of freedom.  Because we’re all very nervous – to put our selves out there.  But there’s a safety required to soar  as much as you might.  And without that safety you’re hesitant.   You don’t go […]

Your Reason to Give Thanks

Posted by on Nov 25, 2014 | No Comments

As we prepare to enter the Turkey-Day-fray, I’m remembering my kiddo’s first official Thanksgiving.  Since my mother set the feast-bar pretty high in my family, prepping for a holiday meal is a lot like preparing for the Pope, or Brad Pitt, or Oprah, or whoever-else you might have picked when you played the game “If […]

Aiming For Who You Want to Be

Posted by on Nov 13, 2014 | No Comments

I’m always amazed at how, now matter how conscious I try to be about being compassionate and appreciative – about being grateful – that I can’t help but be human.  And, at the risk of looking like the total dork that I can be, with Thanksgiving approaching and gratefulness top-of-mind, I thought you might find amusement in […]

Are You Powerfully Free?

Posted by on Oct 29, 2014 | No Comments

I will never forget the first time I traveled to Japan for work, as it changed the way I saw the world and myself in it.  At the tender age of 24, I knew it was going to be an adventure.  It sounded like a cool thing to do.  So exotic.  Having grown up in […]

Are You Powerful or Just Jerky?

Posted by on Oct 27, 2014 | 3 Comments

Have you ever done something that, immediately following, you get that icky “that-wasn’t-my-best-me” feeling?  I recently I got it, and I’m still questioning what I shoulda/coulda done differently. We’ve been in NY for about a couple of years now but I still feel like I’m learning the ropes.  Things happen fast here.  You need to […]

There is Power in Writing it Down

Posted by on Oct 13, 2014 | No Comments

I’m a believer in the power of writing down your goals and dreams – to putting language to vision.  And yet…I’m not always as consistent or mindful about it as I’d like to be.  I get busy.  Taking the time to write everything down seems like an extra step – when I could just dive […]

How’s Life in Your Bubble?

Posted by on Sep 26, 2014 | No Comments

I’ve spent more time in my head, since I’ve moved to NY and I don’t think I’m alone in that.  I remember when I first moved here I was like an open vessel, absorbing input with all my senses.  It was so exciting!  And so exhausting.  I would come home from the city and be […]
