I made the conscious choice years ago to be a person who works to learn and grow as long as I am blessed enough to be on this journey to do so. After I made this choice, one of the unknown-to-me-at-the-time lessons early on was that to stay on this path of growth, I needed to learn how to forgive … [Read more...] about We Are Not Our History
“Is it the pushups? It has to be the pushups.” If you’d been inside my head a few days ago, that’s the conversation you would have heard. See, for the past couple of months, I’ve been gently rehabbing a shoulder injury. Nothing too serious, but enough that I had to back off on some of my … [Read more...] about What My Shoulder Injury Taught Me About Solving Business Problems
The Daily Anchor is becoming The Anchor! If you joined us on our Monthly Momentum Call (MMC) earlier this week this will not come as a surprise to you, as we shared about this at the beginning of the call. If you were not on the MMC, while this may be a surprise, it’s probably not entirely … [Read more...] about The Daily Anchor Becomes The Anchor
As is often the case for me, I sat down today to write about one thing (daily intentions) and when I started brainstorming, what came out (intentions and goals) was much different than the plan. I’m going to go with it and put that other idea in the idea garden for another day. And me taking a … [Read more...] about Honoring My Brain and My Heart
I started playing with something a few weeks ago to see how it worked for me. This is something I’m still testing and is definitely not an engrained practice yet, but I’ve really enjoyed the results thus far, so I thought I’d go ahead and share it. When I find myself in one of two different … [Read more...] about Love Is Always a Good Idea
Sometimes ideas come to me slowly and gradually sink in and I realize, “Oh, that’s a good noticing.” Other times, I feel like I get smacked on the side of the head — a wake-up call of sorts. Still a good noticing, but perhaps a bit (or a lot) ouchy. I had one of those ouchy moments this morning … [Read more...] about Are You Worthy of Your Own Trust?
What if one of the best ways you could be of service to the world right now is by doing your work? This question came to me about four weeks ago when I was struggling with how I wanted (and needed) to be an active participant in the global movement for social justice. I shared recently that I … [Read more...] about Doing Your Sacred Work
You’ve probably had this happen to you before: some well-meaning person tells you that there is always good to be found in a situation or that there is a gift in the struggle you are going through right now or not to get so down because — you’ll see — it’s better right around the corner. Thank … [Read more...] about What Is Here for You to Learn?
Close to two months ago I shared the Daily Anchor, “What Are You Taking With You?,” asking what lessons you might be able to take from this forced pause (due to COVID) in your daily life. I want to revisit this topic again and I hope you will take this opportunity to do so with me. I am going to … [Read more...] about Have You Really Honored This Pause?
I have a practice that I want to share with you today. And, by practice, what I really mean is that this is something I have tried many times over the years and have never really “stuck to it” for long periods of time — but when I do use this practice and stay present to it, the results are … [Read more...] about Enjoyment in Every Moment
I was talking to a friend last week and she shared with me that she is doing really well. She has good energy, is taking care of herself, feeling hopeful, and all-around feeling positive and upbeat. I noticed, though, that she shared all this with hesitation. She then shared that she feels … [Read more...] about It’s OK to Be OK Right Now
A couple of months ago I shared with you about some difficult emotions, specifically anger and resentment, that had been building in me for a while and my growth edges when it comes to feeling and expressing anger. Because of my early experiences with anger and the unhealthy ways I saw it … [Read more...] about What Is Your Anger Telling You?
How are you doing at honoring your limits? I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit how much I still struggle in this area of my life. Boundaries and self-care are areas where I have helped hundreds of people through coaching, teaching, and facilitation, yet they are my perennial stumbling … [Read more...] about Are You Honoring Your Limits?
The free planners for July are now available on the Free Planners page. For better or for worse, here we are – halfway through 2020. Regardless of how your year has gone, taking this time to reflect back on the past six months and make a meaningful plan for the next can help you to let go, … [Read more...] about The Free Planners for July 2020 Are Now Available
There are times when all I really need is for someone to tell me: “You are doing so well.” Some of you may need that, too. I’d like to be the one to tell you today: You, dear soul, are doing so well. It’s true that I don’t know your exact story, nor do I know what all you have done today or in … [Read more...] about You Are Doing So Well
I have resisted writing this specific Daily Anchor (DA) for nearly three months now. The topic came to me around the same time I started writing these DAs, but I put it in my idea garden for a later time. I knew that I would eventually be pulled to write about this and I also knew that there … [Read more...] about Take a Breath
Prior to COVID, Charlie and I often went out for Sunday morning brunch. We called it our date brunch; we would often spend hours just talking, connecting, and ensuring we were making quality time together a priority. Our schedules are generally very full and we learned a long time ago that we … [Read more...] about Beyond Just Surviving
I learned long ago that being in nature is one of the most cathartic things I can do for myself. To stay grounded and centered I need time outdoors. And, when I am having a rough time, I almost always feel better if I can make time to get outside. Recently I was having a rough couple of days; it … [Read more...] about A Lesson from Nature
