I bought my dream car last week. The kind of car you give yourself permission to buy when you no longer tell yourself you have to be practical or realistic or whatever other stories I used to tell myself. Continue reading “The Story of My Dream Car Almost Crushing My Dreams”
The more I know myself, really and deeply know my Self, the less I’m finding I care…
I don’t care what I look like.
I don’t care that I make mistakes.
I don’t care that my thoughts go off on wild, unhelpful tangents.
I don’t care that I get afraid or triggered.
I don’t care to spend so much time Digging Deep. (Gasp! I know!) Continue reading “The More I Know Myself, The Less I Care”
I realized recently that I don’t get scared speaking anymore. Not when I’m interviewing someone big or important, nor when I’m teaching my essential oil workshops. Continue reading “The Fear of Public Speaking and What It Really Boiled Down To”
I had a dream several years ago that I was describing to my doctor what was hurting in my body by describing the one thing that wasn’t: my toes.
Then I woke up and as I went to stretch my stiff joints and aching muscles, I felt it….my freaking toes were throbbing. Continue reading “Before We Get the Opportunity To Change Anything, We First Get the Opportunity to Love It”

Wanna know what they are? Continue reading “The Two-Fold Cure to Any Problem”
Your idea of self-care might be as simple as showering when you’ve got little ones crawling the walls. It might be as basic as drinking enough water or remembering to eat. It might be as nurturing as a massage or some quiet time to yourself. But how it looks is inconsequential to your willingness to make it happen. Continue reading “There is NO Excuse for Neglecting Yourself (let me show you)”
When was the last time you had something only for you?
Not something you did because you “should” do it…
Not something you love and decide to turn into a business on the side…
Not something you teach… Continue reading “Something Only For Yourself”
I’ve been having a lot of conversations with myself lately. Not the kind I normally have; they’ve evolved into something quiet and still and full of observation without words. They come instead with color and texture and movement and breath. With messy hands and a messy kitchen. With exposed shoulders and wisps of hair. With clutter and cleaning.
