“Why didn’t you ask for my help?” This is the question Charlie posed to me after we learned that I had sustained a concussion last summer.

One theme (of many) that I’ve noticed that has shown up as I have been writing these Daily Anchors is the theme of setbacks. I would imagine that over the last couple of months (during this time of COVID-19) that setbacks have daunted many of you, as well. Our daily lives have been turned upside … [Read more...] about Uncertainty and Turning Setbacks into Stepping Stones
While COVID-19 has certainly placed enormous amounts of stress on every one of us, we can also use this time to reflect on how we are showing up in our lives day to day.

May 7 was our 17-year “we got married” anniversary. I call it our “we got married” anniversary because we didn’t have a wedding. We had a short ceremony with just the two of us and the officiant at the courthouse, and then told our family and friends we were married. There were so many reasons at … [Read more...] about How to Celebrate During COVID-19
Spend not one more moment in search of who you already are. Who you want to be is already inside of you. You are worthy and have been worthy from the moment of your first breath.

Trying to reach the shore. Stable ground. Sure footing. Waves taking me under. Can’t breathe. Need air. Grasping for light above the surface. It’s within reach. Almost there. Another wave takes me deeper. Time it well. I can reach the surface. Taken under again. I’m in over my … [Read more...] about Waves of Grief
No matter your strength of heart or the armor you are able to wield when the time calls for it, the truth is that each and every one of us has felt fear throughout these unprecedented times.

I love you. I am listening. Those six words made all the difference to me this morning. They didn’t come from someone else. They came from a little voice inside. The voice came so gently and quietly that it would have been easy for me to keep on the mind loop I was on and not really hear … [Read more...] about I Love You. I Am Listening.
Some of us have an easier time than others tapping into an abundance mindset: the feeling that there is more than enough available for us (and others) and that good things will happen. It comes from a place of trust. Having an abundance mindset can be difficult at any time, but it’s even more … [Read more...] about Abundance Is Still Available
About a month ago, during my morning meditation, I was drawn inward to face some heavy feelings that I had started to suppress even before COVID-19 became our daily reality. And that I had allowed to continue to build over time. (In a moment I’ll share why COVID-19 is an important part of this … [Read more...] about Working with Difficult Emotions
Is it time to surrender? While waving the white flag and giving up may be what comes to mind for you when you hear the word surrender, I have found tremendous strength and peace within surrender.

I shared the other day about my morning with the dropsies and what I need to do for myself when I find myself with a case of the dropsies. I have found it easy in the past — and to be honest, I still do at times — to become critical of myself when this happens. I can get harsh and judgmental with … [Read more...] about Are You Curious or Critical?
Sister, brother, friend, I see you. I know you. I see you. I am you.

I know you. I … [Read more...] about I See You. You Are Enough.
I was standing in the checkout line at Trader Joe’s when it happened. Milk dripping from a carton at the bottom of my shopping cart… a pool of white, forming on the floor, like a visitor unannounced at my door. Jovial as usual, I joked with Bob, the cashier, “Well, no use crying over spilled … [Read more...] about Crying Over Spilled Milk: How to Grieve Well and Rise Strong from Failures and Losses
I found myself at one point a few weeks ago with what felt like a war raging inside me. I couldn’t focus on what I wanted, and I just wanted to do my damn work!
