Inhale and Exhale

I’ve been reading like crazy these days. I usually have a couple of books going at a time — one fiction and one non-fiction. But lately I’ve been all about the non-fiction. It began in with Red, Hot & Holy by Sera Beak and The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes, and then really kicked up a notch with Find A Way by Diana Nyad. It […]

I recently listened to a podcast where Seth Godin was being interviewed about being a writer. I heard him say something that made my whole body vibrate with resonance. When asked to describe his work in the world, he responded: “I notice things for a living…and I try very hard to be aware of my narrative.” Happy sigh. I do too, Seth. I notice things constantly.

Do you want to find out?

If the coaching police suddenly descended upon my universe and insisted that I was only allowed one question to use in my practice — no, let’s be more dramatic…only one question in my LIFE — this would be it: Do you want to find out? From where I sit this question is where the rubber meets the road. This is the question that starts my engine […]

Do you remember that book you read when you were little that just lit you up inside? Maybe it had you not feel so alone because you related to the main character. Maybe you felt inspired because you read how the character overcame unsurmountable odds and grew stronger as a result. Maybe entirely new worlds opened up before your eyes, having you touch lands and […]

Eruptions From My Soul

Last week I wrote about the empty spot I was feeling inside me. The one that was created when my book was released, like a recently vacated womb. I didn’t plan on writing about that. That post started out as something entirely different. But then I felt it. The way my writing shifted – first coming from my head, then moving further down inside me, […]

Laying Hands on The Empty Spot

Last week I needed a lifeline. I got one (thankfully) when I reached out to a good friend. Here’s what was going on: My book, Unscripted: A Woman’s Living Prayer, finally came out on Amazon on December 30th, just getting in under the wire before a new year started. I say “finally”, because it felt like I had worked and waited an eternity for that moment. I […]

Catching & Releasing My Shame

I’m going to tell you a story I could easily not tell. It’s a rather ugly story that reveals an unsavory part of my character. But I’ve decided to share it with you because here’s one thing I’ve learned over the last year: Shame can’t live outside me.  Holding onto it by keeping it inside me not only sours my joy, limits my expansiveness, and dampens my […]
