KEEP DOING THIS…

It has been a year now since I signed a legally binding form terminating my job. I voluntarily walked away with 2 weeks pay and not a clue of who I was or what I had become. What would I be trading my scrubs & stethoscope for? I had absolutely no idea. It took MORE than just the trauma of my brother’s accident. It took MORE than witnessing his death. It took YEARS and YEARS of watching people die to wake me up. It sounds crazy but the fact of the matter is we all have our own timeline. Our own unique path. You will never walk in my shoes; nor will I ever stand in yours. But we  ...

TURTLE SPEED

A sneak peek at the rough draft of the first paragraph of Part II of my book, “I CHOOSE ME – BREAKDOWN TO BREAKTHROUGH” Just sent 1,600 words over to my editor … slow & steady … just like a turtle…   So where do YOU begin? Just how do YOU transform yourself? Well my friend I have phenomenal news. There is no need to run out and spend any money. There is no need to be pre-approved. YOU; my dear; begin right where YOU are. So where exactly are you? Where you are will look completely different from where your neighbor is. Whether you are a stay at  ...

Tom Brady made me do it …

If nothing else…I hope this inspires you … Twice a month I volunteer at Cameron’s House which is a sober home for women about 20 miles North of where I live. I witnessed so many people lose their battle with addiction when I worked at New England Organ Bank which is why I felt called to be of service to these women.   Every time I leave Cameron’s House and get in the car to drive home my cup runneth over. My heart is full of joy. I feel so grateful to be a part of supporting these women in recovery. It’s amazing to see their strength and to look them in the  ...

The Yin and the Yang

I’ve been on this journey of practicing yoga for exactly 4 years now. I started practicing when the counselor I was seeing at the time highly recommended it. So I did some quick research and found a studio near my house. It offered a hot and humid room of 105 degrees with a 90 minute class. I took my first class and I was hooked. The marathoner and Ironman in me was stoked. Not only would I get to de-stress and stretch, but I would get a workout in too. Sweet! I went back to see my counselor. I told her I found a studio I loved. She was excited and then asked me about it. So I went  ...

HOW TO TAKE CONTROL

It’s that time of year (again). How many of you just want to hibernate right now? I know I do. How many of you have let the motivation of a New Year fade away? Has anyone noticed how your old habits have crept back in? For me, this is a time of year that is particularly difficult. Not just because the East Coast seems to be blanketed by heavy gray clouds. Not just because I have lost some steam and see old habits seeping back into my life, but because grief knocks on my door every winter. Just about 5 years ago I watched my brother’s life slip away in front of my very eyes. As a critical  ...

THE ANSWER TO YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM

I recently conducted a survey. One of the questions I asked people was, “What is your biggest problem?” 78% of you responded that balancing life was your biggest issue. I am here to solve that problem. The solution just came to me last night as I was reading ‘THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS‘ by Danielle LaPorte. And let me tell you, it has already helped me to live lighter today! (Hence why I am leaving the groceries out on the counter and why the blender hasn’t been washed yet.) So here is the answer… THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS LIFE BALANCE  Really. There is  ...

NEVER GIVE THIS AWAY

Don’t ever throw this away. Don’t hide it. Don’t lose it. Don’t forget about it. I’m talking about integrity people. What is integrity? What does it mean to you? For those of us who may be slightly obsessed with etymology, which is the study of the origin of a word and how it has developed over time, integrity comes from the latin root integer. Who remembers any math? Anyone? Bueller? An integer is a whole number. An integer is also a “thing complete in itself” (thank you Bill White!) Ok so why am I blogging about this? Integrity implies being  ...

The ONLY way to travel

I have to give credit to an amazing woman, Colette Baron-Reid, who introduced me to this word, coddiwomple, which is defined as traveling in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination. The minute I read about the word on Colette’s blog my soul was screaming, “YES! YES! YES!” This is what the journey is all about. I’ve had people ask me where I’m going with all that I have been creating and the truth is I HAVE NO CLUE. The destination is vague my friends, but now I have a fun new word to define my action; my journey of curiosity and experience.  ...

HAPPY NEW YEAR

So here you are. You’ve reached the end of 2016. Another year older; another year wiser. I can picture you sitting in your kitchen or perhaps on the couch drinking coffee and reflecting on the past year all the while full of hope and inspiration for the new year ahead. I can hear you all now….This is going to be THE year. This will be MY year. The year of less stress, no excuses, better health, and a balanced life. I can hear you because I am you.  Perhaps you are starting off the new year with a cleanse, a new nutritional program, or some type of 30 day challenge. You are  ...
