“NOTHING EVER WORKS OUT FOR MEEEEEE!” These are the words that I (rather melodramatically) whisper-shouted a few days ago while pawing through my bathroom cabinets. After a 16-hour work day and ages stuck in traffic, I’d officially reached that overtired, non-rational emotional state where just about anything will push you over the edge. And in this case? It was the discovery that I was out...

We all do it: Long for more Want what’s next + pine for expansion And doing this doesn’t necessarily mean we don’t appreciate what we have. Our desire for more can feel like a betrayal to our reality. We tell ourselves that we are small, ungrateful people for dreaming bigger. Guilt’s sharp, unforgiving blade finds its place in between our ribs. Its pang runs deep and piercing. Our fear...

“It’s hard to know where to start.” We say that all the time, don’t we?  When we want to move to a new city, start a new venture, go back to school, learn a new skill. We pull out that old chestnut of an excuse, shine it up, and then use it on the daily to explain why we’re not doing what we want to do. But is it really true?  Do you really not know how to begin? Name something you...

“But what if he doesn’t call me back?” “What if I don’t get the job?” “What if I never earn the money I need?” “What if I don’t lose the weight?” “What if everyone hates my book/art/speech/idea?” What if you took all the steps to create the life you wanted + it didn’t work out? Would you be left with a less-than-spectacular life? AND an unsatisfied goal? Yes, going...

Maybe you’ve heard of these mythical creatures. Or seen them in movies. Perhaps your best friend/sister/neighbor is even dating one. The Perfect Partner. They always clean up after themselves. They plan surprise weekend getaways. They buy sweet, thoughtful gifts and spontaneous bouquets. They say things like “I’m so lucky to be with you” and “You’re gorgeous” and “I like...

I want my past and present to flow through me like water + the future to come to me easily. Fluid yesterday and today. Fluid tomorrow. There was a time when effortless flow and deep, rich breaths of acceptance were mythical creatures. Alluring, gorgeous, and totally unattainable. I can remember the sometimes fearful constriction of: 5 years old 9 14. 21. 28. and 30 years old. There was...

We hoard. Feelings, belongings opinions + the best of ourselves. We “save it” for a better day. For an event that’s more important so it won’t “wasted.” Yet, sometimes “later” becomes “never.” And never can suffocate. The “good” china, dress or jewelry is left behind to dull + collect dust. Unused, unworn + subsequently unloved. We squirrel away our opinions (+ hearts) for...

Traditional goals get forgotten. We’ve all made them. I’ll go to the gym five days a week! I’ll never eat pasta again! One glass of wine per week!  Max! I’ll be in bed by 10 pm every night! They can be overwhelming if they aren’t connected to what deeply matters to you. They can make life busier. Screw “the list” –  let’s carve a path! Goals with soul and thoughtfulness....
