WHEN SOMEONE SHOWS YOU WHO THEY ARE
The first time
You better believe them.
But here's the thing – if you don't like someone's behavior or beliefs or attitude –
You still need to ACCEPT THEM EXACTLY AS THEY ARE.Read More
I'm talking about what's REALLY important.
Last night I was about to doze off for bed, and my son was still up.
He asked me if I wanted to play a game of chess – and even though I was pretty tired, I knew I couldn't pass this up.
He's turning 15 this year – and I know – no matter how old he is – 5 or 15 or 45 –
These are the moments that matter.Read More
Okay – this one's pretty personal. I had an old acquaintance I really looked up to message me and ask for help with publishing their book.
When I asked if they were interested in coaching or signing up for one of my online programs, this person got really snippy with their words, and told me matter of factly that they didn't want to actually pay for my services.
I sent this person a polite response and explained that I have a business, not a hobby.

What's been CRITICAL to my success in creating my Dream Life and living it here and NOW is the support I receive from my family, my friends and my mentor – but most especially from my husband, Jeff who's been by my side as my partner in this life for over 18 years.
We both took a huge risk by coming together all those years ago. I was only 19 years old when I met him; and after knowing him for just a little over two weeks, I packed my things and moved my entire life to Madison, Wisconsin.
It turned both of our lives UPSIDE DOWN.
But sometimes that's exactly what we need.

It's been nine years now since I lost my baby daughter, Siena.
She was stillborn at 20 weeks, and it was really unexpected.
For me, April 6th symbolizes for me the never ending love and bond between a mother and her child. It's still a raw feeling after all of these years, and although I have some so called "closure" I don't feel closed off to anything about her or the feelings I have when I think about her and the gratefulness of being her mom.
Today also signifies the start of my own journey all those years ago; and a completely new way of my view towards life, its preciousness, my complete devotion to the practice of living and breathing in the present moment, my belief in reincarnation, and my writing – my work.
When I lost Siena, and the jolt I felt hit my entire being, woke me up to a new way of life.
I began writing again, and began an ever constant search for more meaning.
