Awake and Aware
I’m Easy. Well, not THAT kind of easy … although, in my 20’s… For a long time now I have been noticing that we reward ‘all that is difficult’. Like, “I studied hard for that exam” and, “It was a rough week” and, “I pulled an all nighter to get this project together for my […]
I think life flashes us these false “End of Trail” signs all the time. But we don’t have to believe them or heed them. And THAT is my final Cathedral Rock Lesson: There’s Always More So Forge New Trails. The most exciting stuff begins where the tried-and-true leaves off, right? Now, let me be very clear, there are definitely rewards for going beyond where you usual do (or where others have rarely gone before), but there is also usually a price to pay. Paved roads are easy to walk, whereas creating new pathways in your life may require that you pull out your metaphorical machete and start hacking away at that jungle brush.

I spent much of my life tiptoeing around my desire to find a group of people among whom I could be unconditionally loved and accepted, while staying in alignment with my true nature… I tried to find my tribe, but I always felt like the odd duck swimming with swans, who all seemed to enjoy a sense of belonging I never quite felt.
I’m not going to be talking about the kind of magic that sees rabbits being pulled out of hats or pretty pink-clad fairy princesses riding on unicorns pulling candy-floss out of their bottoms. No. Magic exists, it just might not be in the shape or form of what we’re told magic is. Magic is […]
It’s been a long time since I sat down and worked on a puzzle. So it was fun to start one last weekend with my partner Michelle and daughter Ella. It took us about a week finish and in the process, that puzzle taught me a lot about Life, Growth, Detachment, Patience, Persistence, Perspective and […]
I Am Enough. A couple of years ago I logged into my infrequently used Twitter account one day and found a flurry of messages congratulating me on my nomination. Nomination for what??? Apparently I had been nominated for a FIERCE Woman Award. I was touched that the nomination was in the category most meaningful for […]
“You can always alter your reality at any time.” Owning Your Power You’re probably familiar with the saying ‘what you think you create’ but how can you seriously filter every bad thought? Surely it’s a struggle worthy of giving up on before you even get started? Certainly not. There’s only one person responsible for what […]
This short tap-along video addresses a common frustration for people who are passionate about making this troubled world a better place.
Are you one of those people who aims for goals, but forgets to celebrate when you reach them? If so, this video is for you (and since I’m that way sometimes, it’s also for me). In it, I tell a short story of a young couple and their dog that reminded me how important it is to celebrate the little victories in our lives. Because if we don’t celebrate our victories, we can start to feel like a hamster in an exercise wheel — always moving toward something but never feeling like we’ve actually arrived. When we live this way, we never enjoy what we’ve achieved.

You can learn about the “The Work” here, and download a “Judge Your Neighbor Worksheet,” a form that helps you deal with the thoughts you are having that are making you unhappy.
“A rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success.” — Bo Bennett The Fear of Rejection Rejection is not something we take to kindly. Rejection, for most, is something to be avoided at all costs and if encountered we tend to slip into self-doubt, shame, self-flagellation and a variety of […]
