It was a beautiful thing.  She brought such complete attention, that in her presence I could see his confidence expand.  He stood taller.  He played with more passion.  It was as if she had the power to light him up from within. This past weekend, as my kiddo was reacquainted with his keyboard and asked […]

You know how here are moments in your life that are frozen in time – that no matter how many years pass, the movie in your mind keeps the memory in full color, with every detail preserved, to be replayed in an instant?  There was a moment…a lifetime ago, that I will never forget. So […]

What Legacy Will You Leave?

On October 22nd of last year, I received a devastating phone call.  My dear friend was very ill.  He had pancreatic cancer and was committed to fight like crazy.  It seemed unreal.  Impossible really.  He was the most health-conscious guy I knew.  We’d go to dinner and he’d talk of doing a “cheat” if he […]

Ummm…What Did You Say?

Oh my gosh.  Night-before-last I did the parent-thing that I swore I’d never do.  My kiddo was talking a million miles an hour and I was….well yes, I was on Facebook…and according to witness testimony, I was nodding and smiling and responding to what he was telling me.  Ten minutes later my kiddo came back […]

Are You Choosing?

Like you, I wear a million different hats.  Business owner.  Teacher.  Coach.  Consultant.  Mother.  Wife.  Sister.  Daughter.  Friend.  I treasure my hats.  I would like to think that how I define what it means to wear each hat determines the actions I take – how I spend my life.  On a perfect day, I get […]

What Does Your Best Self Look Like?

When do you see 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?  I think we catch glimpses of our best self – like ghosts – leaving us wondering “Was that […]

Is Meaning Getting in the Way?

Posted by on Feb 14, 2014 | 6 Comments

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% of […]

Getting Present

Today is the last day before my kiddo is home for holiday break.   My husband’s office is closed next week, so I get him home too.   And while I suspect I could squeeze in a few hours to blog each day, I’m going to put my writing on “pause” for a few days. […]
