What’s your message?

“My life is my message.” – Gandhi


The people you spend the most time with have a front row seat to the way you choose to live your life.

Every day they get to see the latest episode of the (insert your name) show.  What is it you show them? 

This has been a theme of a few conversations I’ve had recently. First, in the weekly mastermind call I have with my clients (as part of my group coaching program), we discussed the importance of scheduling your values instead of your busy work. 

In doing so you make sure the things that light you up get your time and attention. You also tell the world what you care about, what you stand for. 

In a mastermind I attend for my own growth, I was challenged to take greater responsibility for losing the 100 extra pounds I’m carrying around. I realized just how much I continue to sabotage myself regardless of the positive changes I have already made. 

The message I’m sending is a half-assed approach to improving my health. That isn’t the message I want to send nor is it the way I want to live my life. I committed to stepping up my game (I type while eating a salad), GO ME! 

You simply can’t expect good, lasting results without a complete commitment to creating what you want. 

What one thing are you half assing that you really need to step into?
What result will you experience by going the distance?
How can I support you in making it happen?

There’s no such thing as a stupid question

Listen to this post … There is no such thing as a stupid question when you live with neurodiversity. I read an email from my son’s school this morning about registering him for classes for the next term. It listed the instructions on how to do it, but guess what happened? I began reading it

Thank goodness for second chances

You’ll have your share of naysayers when you’re neurodivergent. When I first enrolled in the Social Work Program, I had a professor who didn’t like me. She went out of her way to try and get me to drop out of the program. It was the early 1990’s and about a decade before I’d learn

When Facebook wants you to friend a childhood bully

Facebook just recommend I friend someone who literally used to torment me when we were kids. We have FB friends in common it seems. I felt anger at first as I looked at his face. I tried to see evidence of that kid I resented so much. I couldn’t see him. I didn’t know the

Self-care is about more than getting enough rest

Listen to this post … Self-care isn’t simply about taking care of the parts of you that take care of everyone else. It’s about so much more.  It’s about taking care of the “self”, who you are, what fills you up and makes you feel most alive.  I focus on the self-care that strengthens the

Where do we go from here…

Listen to this post … I grew up being bullied by classmates, teachers, and even members of my own family.I was beat up at various times from the age of 5 through middle school. I finally fought back, decisively, and no one touched me again after that.To some, I should’ve acted sooner. In my mind,
