Strength in Vulnerability

A couple of weeks ago, my mother took a pretty bad fall down a flight of stairs. Miraculously, she walked away from the accident without any broken bones, except for a small fracture in her foot. While she did have a lot of bruising and some intimidating-looking hematomas, it could ...

The Pendulum Principle

Have you ever been so fed up with a situation that you wanted to jump ship and run away?  We can be so aggravated that we think our only option is to call it quits. As human beings, we are wired to run from pain and/or run toward pleasure. When desiring ...

Asking for Help: A Challenge

I've got a lot going on in my life right now. Exciting changes are afoot in both my business and my personal life, and while ultimately, it's all good, the process and transition is overwhelming to say the least. I'm not very good at asking for help. Never have been. It's scary. ...

Stick with the Twists and Turns

Coming from a big math family (financial advisors, CPAs, etc), I decided to study journalism and writing in college. I know, I'm such a rebel. After graduation, I struggled to find a job in my field, so ended up at -- yup, you guessed it -- the family business doing taxes. ...

What Are You Spreading?

I'm settled in to one of my favorite cafés in town to get some writing and emails done. As a somewhat regular here, the owner comes over to say hi. "What's new, Mike?" I ask. He dives right in about several projects he's clearly excited about, and shares his vision, ideas, and ...

What Are You Focusing On?

Last week, we got another 14 or so inches of snow here in Massachusetts and the onslaught of Facebook posts came: "I'm so over this snow. Spring can't come fast enough!" "Damn groundhog and his 6 more weeks of winter." "Not another storm!" And so on and so on. Sometimes I think people complain ...

I Think We Need a Break

I initiated a difficult, but necessary break-up recently. As a result, I'm sleeping better, have fewer headaches, and am experiencing only minor withdrawal. Because I use my iPhone as an alarm clock, I sleep with it next to my bed. Over the past few weeks, I found myself jumping on to ...

Brené Brown Would Be Proud!

Well, that was unexpected. It's a topic I haven't spoken on much, at least publicly. I certainly hadn't shared so much of myself and my journey with it. I also hadn't given much thought to how vulnerable it might be to lead a webinar on weight loss. And I sure as shit ...

It’s SZA Time!

Last night, my best bud, Christina, and I went to a Zumba/Barre combo class at a local studio. Having never tried either activity, we were both nervous. What if we suck? What if everyone else is really good? What if we hate it? As we sat outside the studio waiting to ...

What Stories Are You Telling?

Holy hell, am I glad the holiday season is over. I didn't realize how out of my body I had become until it was all behind me. I felt like a new woman on January 6th. I love the holidays, don't get me wrong. Once Thanksgiving approaches, I become a little ...
