Your Year in Review, A Guide

Looking back at the end of any year can be confusing. It may seem as though 1 or 2 events engulfed the year. Your year wasn’t made up of one or 2 events but an accumulation of actions, thoughts, feelings, happenings within your control, and happenings outside of your control. You know this but all […]

When You Find Something Wonderful

Yesterday, I missed a presentation. I was attending the PA Conference for Women in Philadelphia. I was on my way to this presentation when I decided to take a swing by the Coaches Corner, where I’d worked that morning. Last year, it hadn’t been very busy at the Coaches Corner where pro bono consultations were […]

About That Goal

The goal was important. Important because it was made from the deepest of intentions, based upon values and life purpose. A plan was made. Life happened. The plan got sidetracked. Sometimes, life’s big stressors arrive in clusters. When they do, dealing with what’s most important takes precedence. The goal took a backseat to pressing priorities. […]

Your Next Step

You don’t know what it is. You do know what it is. Either way, you feel immobilized. Questions you might ponder: What’s holding you back? Is it perfectionism? Is it fear, grief, sadness, or self judgement? What would you do if you could put your concerns aside? When would you prefer to take action? How […]

Owning Past Learning is One Measure of Success. Why?

This past Saturday I got way outside of my comfort zone. I signed up for a 6 hr. chair yoga instructor training class. The class was open to yoga instructors and those with health care experience, PT’s, OT’s, RN’s, who had yoga class experience. I love yoga and have benefitted physically and emotionally over the […]

A 1st Step to Creative Change

We cannot feel inspired at all times. Sometimes, we feel flat even when change is looming. Always, change is looming. We may not feel inspired but most of us want to feel a sense of control. The 1st step to control and making a creative change is about knowing yourself very well. Who are you […]

Confusion to Clarity

Here we are. Spring is upon us. It looks, feels, smells like Spring! This AM, after an early morning run, I sat on our back porch with my cup of coffee, taking in the sight of our large cherry tree covered in blooms. The scent of my neighbor’s lilac bushes are wafting into our yard. […]

That man. This lesson.

There are times a recalled memory makes you smile, grin, laugh aloud. At other times, the same memory creates tears. This post is about that type of memory and the learning which followed. That man. This memory. There was an event, a memory I have of throwing something at a man in anger—-or extreme irritation. […]

Better Than Shamrocks!

Bad Things come in 3’s. Waiting for the other shoe to drop. Perhaps you don’t have to be Irish to have grown up with these limiting ideas but I am and did grow up with these and many others. Sometimes, they were stated with a wry smile. Sometimes! Why not, then, schedule my annual mammogram […]

Not This Year

Some year(s) of our lives focus what seems like all of our attention on a major life change to the extent that other meaningful aspects of our lives take a back seat. You may have completed an education, changed careers, welcomed a child into your family, moved, built a business, married, ended a significant relationship, […]
