Happy New Year

By |January 1st, 2017|

One year closes and another opens-new opportunities and new intentions. I feel that pull-to review and reflect and let go. To let one thing pass away and be done with it. I feel myself looking differently at this new year. I have set my intentions. I know what my word or theme of the year [...]

The stories we tell ourselves

By |December 1st, 2016|

I love stories. I love to sit and listen to people talk about their lives, share funny family pranks, tell me about their children, their happiness, their struggles. I love the laughter, connectedness and empathy that comes from opening up to one another. There is power in storytelling. Humans have been using storytelling for thousands [...]

What if we showed up as just who we are? With no censoring and no thought to being too much or having to work for approval or love. What does that look like to you? Showing up authentically is your birthright - it's the only thing that life asks of you - be you. Not [...]

I’ve been uncovering more about my deep belief that everything must be earned - that old “if it isn’t hard, it isn’t worth anything” paradigm. Do you have that belief? Do you struggle? My hidden and limiting beliefs are in conflict with my outward outlook and beliefs. This causes quite a bit of strain and stress on me [...]

Move Forward

By |October 26th, 2015|

Move forward - even if it’s messy. I am hard on myself - too hard on myself. I always have been: crazy high expectations for every aspect of my life - no balls dropped, flat out do-it-all-or-else energy coursing through my body, mind, heart. And, if I didn’t do it all - well that was [...]

Ask, receive, done.

This is a picture of my dad helping my youngest climb up a creek bank. She needed a little extra help from someone she trusted and he was there - ready and willing to lend a hand. So simple for both of them - she needed help and asked without reservation. He wanted to help [...]

Start Leaving What You’re Going To Leave

By |June 20th, 2015|

“Start leaving what you’re going to leave” - those words from Danielle La Porte from months ago are still working on me. It’s been a slow bloom for me although it resonated deeply upon first reading. Start leaving… that part really hit home. I felt empowered to take that first step of leaving even as [...]

My coach vision is: I am deep sanctuary, liberator of heart's song, catalyst of freedom and invoker of new stories. I had a powerful experience birthing that vision and I feel it deep in my bones - down to the very marrow. I believe this about me. And, that feels power-full. The definition of sanctuary [...]

On the road to Yes!

By |August 8th, 2014|

At times, in my life, I have had difficulty in saying yes to the things/experiences that I most want.  I allowed fear and feelings of not being worthy to interfere with what I most desired.  I thought that I could do anything for a set amount of time and chose that over my heart’s desire, [...]

Vulnerability and Moving Through

By |June 29th, 2014|

For years, I have said, “I can do anything for a set amount of time.”  What I meant was that I could push through, persevere, maybe even suffer if I knew how long it was going to last.  My mindset was one of buckling down, shoring up the personal armor and making the best of [...]
