Not Feelin’ It?

So you’ve lost that lovin’ feeling? Lost your “mojo”? Just feel nothing? Who hasn’t been there? I got the worst cold in years this past week – I was in bed during the most perfect weather weekend in six months!  I made it through an arctic, awful winter (can these please stop by the way?), […]

The Epidemic of Not Good Enough

I thought it was just me. And I didn’t have a term for it, but I never felt comfortable in myself. I was never smart enough (so many smart kids in my high school), pretty enough (I was cute I guess, but felt awkward. And so many beautiful girls around), or even the best flute […]

Don’t Apologize for Your Existence

For a long time, and even now to a somewhat lesser degree, I didn’t want people to see me. I’m not sure when it started. I’m one of six kids, so I was just a number anyway. I graduated in a high school class of 1,000 people. We had 24 valedictorians.  That is ridiculous. But […]

Are you a late bloomer?

Do you ever feel like you have missed the boat? Like wait, I’m supposed to be married with 1.7 children by now. I’m supposed to be a home owner by (insert arbitrary age here). I should be earning this much money.  I should have written that best-selling novel by age 30. Ackk! Facebook has made […]


Life is uncertain. That’s a tough one. We want to control everything. We want to know that the person we want to love us will always love us. We want to know where we will be living in 5 years. We want to know that we will have enough for retirement. Hell, we want to […]

Why do I feel bad? 

We often look to others to make ourselves feel better after a trauma or bad day. But I was recently told that only WE can change how we feel. Wow that was NOT what I wanted to hear! But I had been disappointed lately when turning to several people hoping they could make my misery […]

Write Your Own Story

I was a shy kid.  I was afraid of people. They were loud. They wanted things from me that I might not be able to give. It felt like a test – and I always failed. “You’re too quiet. You’re shy.” These were BAD THINGS. By definition being “too” anything is never good. Even “too […]


I know, what a creative title for the first blog post!  But it is really, because the hardest part about starting a new thing is well, starting. Even if it’s something you really want. Sometimes BECAUSE it’s something you really want.  Which makes no sense.  Really, it doesn’t. Because then you have to ask yourself […]

What you resist persists

What you resist persists. Surely we have all heard that one before. But I heard it in a different light today. And I catch myself resisting things ALL the TIME! The context I heard it in related to the Law of Attraction, which many people interpret as having to think positive thoughts 24 hours a […]

What thought runs YOUR life?

This question came to me when asked in a different way – what negative “rule” do I live by? But the answer is the same. For me, I already knew the answer on some level. I’ve been hiding. My whole life. I don’t like people looking at me, I don’t want people to judge me – […]
