The Five-Day Reset

The Five-Day Reset

I’d love for you to join me for a Five Day Reset, August 31 – September 4. It’s a chance for us to set aside the craziness for a few minutes each day, and set ourselves up to finish the year with sanity,…

How Do You Know If Coaching Is Right For You?

How Do You Know If Coaching Is Right For You?

I have been working with coaches since 2014 (although back then I called them mentors) and I have found that again and again, the process of intentionally reflecting and planning, trying ideas and refining them, has led to the greatest amount of growth in my life. I love books, podcasts, and courses, but coaching is about the integration of learning and insights. It’s about taking the inspiration, or the theory, and turning it into reality. To me, the heart and…

A Gentler Approach to the New Year

A Gentler Approach to the New Year

You can take the pressure off yourself, if you want to. You can set intentions, and set goals, and show up in the new decade with a lot of positivity, AND know that nothing will magically change overnight, and that’s okay. Or, if you’re not feeling it – and you’re a little bit worn, a little bit frayed, a little bit uncertain – that’s okay too. It’s not a verdict on the year. New Year’s Day simply provides a rhythm….

7 Ways to Take Care of Yourself This Christmas

7 Ways to Take Care of Yourself This Christmas

I absolutely love the idea of Christmas, but tend to get burnt out on the actual doing of all the Christmas things. Anyone else?? 🙂 Here are a few easy ways to practice self-care this holiday season so you can enjoy rather than just muddling through! 1. Stay hydrated.

Precise Questions & Practical Steps: Asking Questions That Get to the Heart of the Matter

Precise Questions & Practical Steps: Asking Questions That Get to the Heart of the Matter

I don’t remember where I was in our office building, only that a panicked team member came to find me, and pulled me into a conference room. “Why are they packing up his desk?” she probed, referring to our shared boss. She told me his personal items were being placed in an old file box, the universal symbol of a really rough day at the office. As second-in-command on the team, I could see why she asked me, but I…

The Full Life

The Full Life

It feels a little bit like the storm is over. There’s a settled sense of calm that I don’t take for granted. The knot in my stomach has loosened, my breath has returned, a new normal is starting to form, and it’s time to decide what to build on this new foundation. Regardless of how we come to a new beginning, at some point we have to ask: What now? And we know we’re really healing when we ask it…

How Do You Know You Need To Let Go?

How Do You Know You Need To Let Go?

On a grey morning in February, I tucked myself into the back corner of the cutest café Liverpool has to offer, with a cinnamon-maple latte and my journal, for what had become an annual tradition of reflection. The mug fit perfectly in my hands, comforting and soothing, and was the perfect moody grey to match the rain clouds gathering in my thoughts. I traced the smooth edge with my fingernail, and glanced over at the front table by the window,…

A Practical Guide to Wondering

A Practical Guide to Wondering

This is an invitation to dive deeper into exploring our beliefs so we can understand how we view ourselves, and our world, and our role in the world. When we are brave enough to ask ourselves hard questions, we give ourselves the opportunity to course-correct. It allows us to intentionally discard ways of viewing the world that have become warped or twisted, and keep only that which is good and true. (If you haven’t already read my blog post on…
