How To Stop Overhelping And Keep Your Energy For Yourself

Just last month, I ran the first: Get Out Of Your Own Way Challenge. It was SO MUCH FUN. I loved getting your responses every day and I loved the shifts that happened in your lives in 12 short days.

I sent out a survey after the challenge and asked the challengers what their favorite exercise...

Is Being The 'Nice One' Contributing To Your Illness or Burnout?

**DISCLAIMER**
These are my thoughts and opinions. I’m sure there are studies somewhere to back some of this up, but I’m not going to go looking for them. You’re welcome to if you’d like. In addition, this article in no way states that you are at fault for your illness....

Why You Need Proprioceptive Writing, Even If You've Never Heard Of It

In just over a year, I’ve been pouring out the words that are usually jumbled in my brain. Trying to clear some space up there and trying to rearrange those words so that they are helpful for you. This past month, I gave myself the challenge of trying Proprioceptive Writing. This is a...

Martha Beck's Designated Issue Theory

Martha Beck. I’ve mentioned her a couple of times before (or maybe all the time). She’s on my Top Ten list of coaches I love. She seeped into my brain through articles in O Magazine that I read when I was living in Poland. I would buy an Oprah magazine at an exorbitant price at a...

How To Follow Your Intuition Like A Pro

You know you have gut feelings, an intuition, but how do you know if you are listening to it or if you're just bullshitting yourself?

New Year's Resolutions Are The Worst (Do This Instead)

No, seriously. New Year's Resolutions Suck.

 I’d like to share with you what I do instead of New Year’s resolutions. New Year's Resolutions suck, we all suck at them and we all get sucked into them. A few years ago, I started choosing a theme for the year instead of making...

I Sent Back A Steak

For those of you who don’t know me personally, I’m going to give you a little background information. In addition to being brought up in a household that was concerned with ‘never being a bother’ to anyone, I also spent over a decade of my life working in bars and...

You Can Only Light People Up If They Can See You

I was curled up on my oversized bean bag watching the clouds pass over this October’s full moon. I love the moon. This one seems particularly powerful. The clouds are lighter in some places, darker in others; thicker in some places, thinner in others. And as I watched the light of the moon...
