I’m an early to bed, early to rise kind of person. When New Year’s Eve comes around, most of the time I wait until New Year’s Day to greet it with the sunrise. There are years when I am with family and friends who want to stay up and greet the new year at midnight. On those occasions I need a lot of intention and distraction to keep myself awake and even then, it’s no guarantee. Many times, someone is shaking me awake saying “Happy New Year!”.Read More
This week has been painful for our nation and for individual lives. I have encountered and sat with people who are feeling angry, overwhelmed, sad and despondent just to name a few emotions. It feels like an open wound that will not heal.Read More

Taking a back seat on the insanity bus and wondering why life is so crazy!Read More
I had the privilege of attending many wonderful events this week (The National Association of Women Business Owners, Women’s Enterprise Foundations and Self Made Successful Women) and to be surrounded by amazing wonderful giving men and women.

(I want to let the guys reading this know that this blog is woman-focused, yet can apply to many men I know, so adapt as you see fit.)Read More

Are you connecting to others? Isolating?
Are you trying to continue life as normal? Or has tragedy impacted what you thought was normal?
Has anyone asked you these questions?Read More
It has been a week of contrasts. The pain and anger surrounding events in Virginia and Spain. Words that highlight how division is present. And then on Monday the solar eclipse. A phenomenon that brings all of humanity together. As I witness this I see the differences between focusing on the big picture and focusing on the smaller picture. I’m reminded how important the spiritual practice of tapping into bigness is.Read More
