Who Are Your Anti-Busy-Buddies?

“I wish I could” she said,  “I never have time for lunch.  It’s crazy-busy here.  Always.” “Oh I hear ya!  This is the first time I’ve come up for air in weeks!” I replied, feeling like I had to somehow justify the unfilled gap in my day. As a culture we wear our overwhelm like […]

When to Say “When”

Posted by on Sep 14, 2015 | 2 Comments

There are days that I would love to have a clone.  Today is one of those days.  As evening approaches and I realized that I had not yet written a post, the sinking awareness that I should accept the fact that today’s blog may not be “all that” hit me.  And then I thought…I bet many […]

Are You Feeling Lucky?

We all have them. Those insane days where nothing seems to go as planned.  Your alarm doesn’t go off when should.  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 can’t quite […]

Are You Bringing Your Best REAL You?

  We’re all so good.  We’ve read all the books, and the Influencer posts, and the cute-quippy-quotes that make us think and reflect.  We’ve been ever-so-subtly-trained in how to play the game and win.  We know the right things to say.  We know how to talk-the-talk and walk-the-walk.  We’ve worked so hard to do what […]

What’s Your Mess to Own?

One of the things that makes life both magical and complicated is that there is no such thing as a perfect human being.  Try as we might (and some of us are trying mightily), we mess up from time to time.  We react in the moment.  We say and do stupid things. It’s not just […]

My life keeps dishing out proof that the more I learn, the more I realize I need to learn – and it’s a very uncomfortable place to be.  It’s so much more fun when you feel like you’ve got all the answers, don’t you think?  My husband (the innovation-guy) and I were talking about the […]

Scan Yourself

I woke up this morning feeling like my jaws had been cemented shut.  It hurt to yawn.  I realized that I must have been clenching my teeth again while I slept, an unconscious coping-mechanism in my body’s attempt to manage all the rapid change we’re facing.  As I sit massaging my cheek, at the painful […]
