THE ONE THING WE SHOULD ALL BE CELEBRATED FOR; NOT JUST HOLLYWOOD.

I was moved to tears the other night after listening to Oprah deliver her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMile Award at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards. I know I wasn’t the only one. I saw it in the eyes of Hollywood’s finest – the women and the men. The black, the white, the gay, and the straight. I saw what I was feeling in their eyes. The feeling of unity, hope, and love. The most powerful feelings that exist. The feelings that make you shout “Yes!” on the inside and out. The feelings that make you feel completely inspired and empowered. Those words that Oprah spoke;  ...

ONLY THIS 1 THING WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

There is no person, place, thing, or experience that changes your life. You my friend – YOU change your life. The same goes for saving your life. You hear it all the time don’t you? AA totally saved my life. Yoga changed my life. Nope. It didn’t. Did the yoga do all the work for you? Did AA do the work? Pretty sure it didn’t. You did the work. You are the captain of your ship. You determine what course you will follow. You are the one that takes action that directly impacts your life. You make the decisions, the choices. You, quite frankly, become the change. Or you don’t. You  ...

CLOSING THE BOOKS ON 2017

Sitting here in the stillness of the evening, watching the last few embers burn in the fireplace feeling an overwhelming sense of contentment knowing that tomorrow night the books will officially close on 2017. 2016 was a year of digging deep into the earth and then digging it all up. This year, 2017, this has been a year of building a foundation. A simple, strong, and solid foundation to support the house I am building. It is all work – foundation to eventually fixtures. It doesn’t matter what part comes next. The work never stops. If the work stops, the house suffers. When I  ...

THE TRUTH IS I’M STRUGGLING

It’s gray (for the 3rd day in a row). I’m chilled to the bone sitting here under a blanket wearing my hat and poofy vest I threw on to take 1 kid to the bus stop and the other to pre-school. It’s been in the 30’s- mid 40’s for the past week. Welcome to New England. This morning started at 5:49 am when we caught our almost 7 yr old scaling a piece of furniture to get to his Kindle. We recently reinstituted a rule that there is no technology before school. Let’s just say not everyone agrees with this. The Kindle battle lasted for approximately 40 minutes  ...

THE BEST WAY TO SWEAT

Have you ever needed to blow off some steam? Have you ever gone for a run or hit the gym to help release some stress? It works – right?! Exercise is a wonderful and healthy way to relieve stress. But there’s something better and tomorrow I will begin an intensive month long training so I can teach it. So I can share it. So I can hopefully inspire and help 1 person, if not more, discover the tremendous healing benefits of what is known as Bikram yoga. I came to Bikram because the counselor I was seeing almost five years ago told me I needed to do some yoga. I was a runner and  ...

ASK THIS QUESTION AND THEN FIND OUT

There’s this AMAZING thing that happens when you can just get out of your own way; when you can acknowledge what your mind is telling you, but then let it go. When you can move past the “talk” and let yourself see what is possible; when you can ask the big questions; even the questions that aren’t necessarily big, but yet, still hold us back, and when you can then just go find out what the answer is – that’s where growth occurs and where the juiciness of life resides. For me, today was a question of “what if?” “What if I did it?”  ...

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  ...

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  ...
