It’s Thyme to love yourself more

That’s not a typo in the title by the way.
Hang on to your aprons cause things are about to get spicy.

I love pasta, especially a good pasta sauce. When you’re cooking dinner for your family, one way you know it’s done is to taste it.

Directly experience it for yourself to see if it’s good enough for the people you love. Right?

Now think about how you treat yourself. What do you say to yourself about yourself? If you’re your number one fan that’s fantastic.

But if the voice between your ears feeds you stuff you wouldn’t feed the people you love. Well we need to pitch it in the trash and start from scratch.

For decades life has been my kitchen. Lemme tell ya. I’ve been poached, burned, dropped, rolled and chopped. Quite recently I was pretty baked.

The point being. If it doesn’t taste good enough for your family, you’re probably not gonna feed it to em.

Some of the stuff you say to yourself, you wouldn’t say to them because you love them. But wait.

I invite you to think about love as something you can feel, taste, smell, touch. Just like tasting the best pasta sauce when it’s ready.

You’re kidding yourself if you think the poison in your mind doesn’t find it’s way into the heart of those you love.

But like any committed Chef you’re always about upping your game and insist upon even better ingredients.

Ones that promote focus, growth, healing. You know they’re the best because you enjoy them yourself, you know firsthand.

You know what it feels like to be treated in a loving way. It makes treating others in a loving way come more naturally.

I’m honored work with Moms who are learning to love themselves after spending years putting themselves last.

Inside your own mind must become the safest place to be. Whenever possible.

It’s a matter of training yourself to be more self-compassionate and accepting of yourself as an imperfect human. Even finding joy in it.

Learning to let go of perfectionism and embracing curiosity.

A loving approach toward yourself acknowledges you are both good enough as you are, and you’re growing.

Helping your neurodiverse child stop tuning you out

Listen to this post … Hoping our kids learn important lessons through lecture is a fruitless strategy. All your kid really gets better at is tuning you out. I’ve learned (especially with ND kids), introspection is a more powerful teacher. But ND kids tend to avoid introspection. Their self-consciousness and inner critic make it something they want to

A useful way to manage anxiety

Listen to this post … Let me tell you something about anxiety. Anxiety is stored up energy for action you can’t take. When you fret about the past, thinking about how it should have gone, what you should’ve done – you’re suggesting to yourself another course of action is possible. Your subconscious mind thinks, “Yeah, let’s do

Getting beyond RSD with ADHD

Listen to this post … I have an idea about RSD (Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria) experienced by many with ADHD. I’ve noticed those that experience it perceive relationships in an all or nothing way. You’re loved or unloved, given attention or ignored, you’re happy when they’re happy. When in a relationship it’s often co-dependent. Wanting constant access to the

He’s going to be an adult someday so he may as well learn it now

Listen to this post … “He’s going to be an adult someday so he may as well learn it now.” This is a concerning belief in the mind of many parents raising a child with neurodivergence (ND). It demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding about how our kids learn. Believing a consequence needs to be harsh and effective the first
