When Choosing a Weapon, Reach for Your Heart

Let me start off by saying, my heart goes out to the people of Paris, Beirut, Baghdad, and every other place on earth where people suffer at the hands of terrorists, extremists, and cowards, including right here in the USA. It's human nature to want to make sense out of an ...

Say YES To Life and It’ll Respond in Kind

Last weekend, I flew to Puerto Rico to surprise my sister for her birthday (check out my disguise!). She was vacationing down there with some family and friends to celebrate her big day. Two weeks prior, I had no plans to go anywhere. Then, my brother presented me with an idea ...

The Power of the Pause

On a call this week, a client and I were talking about how to practice being less reactionary, whether when invited to dinner, when asked to help out in some way, or when your buttons get pushed. If you tend to quickly say "yes" to requests or invitations, but then later ...

You Don’t Have To Do This Alone

As soon as I hear the first crunch of the fall leaves under my hiking boot and smell the intoxicating scent of autumn, I know I made the right decision. While I haven't completely thrown in the towel, my commitment to exercise has decreased dramatically since my move eight weeks ago. Each night I go ...

Last weekend, Melissa and I went to the Big E (Eastern States Exposition) -- the fifth largest fair in the country, billed as "New England's Great State Fair." With horse shows, concerts, carnival rides, gizmos and gadgets, and food - lots and lots of food - it can make for a whirlwind kind of day. Though ...

Deepen Relationships with Others and Yourself with this Powerful Practice

I recently had a marathon FaceTime chat with a best friend. Even though she and I are very close, I still tend to hold back when it comes to opening up. It's nothing personal to her. I do this with most everyone. I'm working on getting better at asking for help and relying ...

Your Clutter Is More than “Stuff”

Think about the clutter in your life -- books, magazines, draining friendships, clothes. Sure, it's all annoying and it would be nice to have it gone. Now feel into your body as you think about that clutter. Are you tensing up? Feeling a bit nauseous? Overcome with overwhelm? The "stuff" in your life ...

Are You “Shoulding” All Over Yourself?

How many times a day are you saying that you "should" be doing something? "I should call my brother back," "I should go to the gym," "I should visit my parents." The word, "Should," insinuates that the power lives outside of you; that the Should is forcing you to do things instead of you deciding ...
