Doing My Life Better Series: Living Out Loud

Doing My Life Better Series (In hopes of helping you do your life better too) I will be writing a series of blogs about how to do my life better. I always find something in other’s stories that resonates with me, and I hope the same is true for you. I will not try to find the parallels; you will have to do that. The first part is to excavate. That means looking at my defining moments. Those moments that changed you in some small… Read More »Doing My Life Better Series: Living Out Loud

When You Can’t Control the Circumstances, What Do You Control?

As I enter Day 26 of being isolated and quarantined, I am conscious of this ‘out of control feeling’ that I am experiencing.  Most of what is happening is out of our control.  I am not an expert in how to best get through this.  I am struggling right along with you.  It is interesting that my clients are all going through the exact same thing at the same time.  I know that we are all going through this in our own ways – some… Read More »When You Can’t Control the Circumstances, What Do You Control?

This One is for the Girls

I heard Deborah Tanner speak years ago about the differences in women and men. It was so intriguing to me, that years later I remember most of what she said.   One of her points was that, as little boys, men play games where the whole team wins – football, baseball, and basketball. Girls play games like teacher/student and mother/child. Girls compete in beauty pageants where only one of them can win.   It is my belief that when a woman wins the presidency of this nation,… Read More »This One is for the Girls

What is Your Word of the Year?

Every year, I sit down and go through a process of deciding what one word sums up what is most important to me for the upcoming year.  What do I want to be, do or have?  I write down a lot of words and start to edit them until I come up with the one that fits.  Let me explain why I do this.  One word is easy to remember.  One word can be repeated often.  If it is not a goal or a “should”… Read More »What is Your Word of the Year?

How to Make a Change for the New Year

What would have the most significant change in 2020 for you?

The truth is that I never stick… Read More »How to Make a Change for the New Year

Looking Back – Looking Forward

I like to take some time in the craziness of December to first look back over the past year and then look forward to the new year. This gives me perspective and appreciation for what was accomplished instead of focusing on what I didn’t get done. My practice is easy and it is a great exercise to appreciate the past year and to anticipate what will matter in the next one.  I hope you will take the time to do the exercise below for yourself. Let’s get started… Read More »Looking Back – Looking Forward

Watching Women Find Their Wings

In my job, I enjoy watching my clients figure out something or see something from a new perspective.  I watch the transformation that what they want and need matters.  What is surprising is that we all need that push — that nudge to put ourselves on the list, or to put on our running shoes when we don’t feel like it.  These are the wings we need to fly. A few weeks ago, I asked a client what was most important to her.  She sat… Read More »Watching Women Find Their Wings

60 Years Old – Starting the 3rd Act!

I will turn 60 on September 7. That is a milestone – a chance to take stock of the life you have lived and look ahead and ask – What now? This is better than the first day of school when you got to decide how you wanted to show up in whatever grade you were in. There isn’t fear at 60 that you won’t be good enough or that you will fail. But there is a need for me to make conscious choices of… Read More »60 Years Old – Starting the 3rd Act!
