Relinquishing Control


Letting go of the need to control others moves us from judgement to acceptance. We are able to “hold space” and walk alongside people, without trying to impact the outcome. By stepping out of the way, we let life be; opening up space. Removing an unrealistic sense of responsibility from our shoulders. Shifting away [...]

Getting Unstuck


When we hold ourselves back from our potential and feel stuck in any area of our lives, it is time for a change. Change is difficult and something we often avoid. The status quo seems safe and comfortable but won’t get us where we want to go. Action however, will. What we need is [...]

Required vs Inspired Action


Required actions are all about following the status quo. Doing what you are supposed to be doing without thought and based on the expectation or beliefs of others. Often resulting in undesired outcomes that feel constricting and counter intuitive. Conversely, when we feel inspired we are compelled naturally. There is a fluidity and ease [...]

Facing Fears


We have them. They can stop us from trying, asking, and doing. They may show up as excuses or justifications. Resulting in action or paralysis. As unique as they may seem, there is one undeniable shared characteristic when it comes to fears: how we deal with them. We can opt to let fears stop [...]

Deeply Engaged


Leading authentically requires having a clear understanding of your own ethical principles and personal values. It means feeling comfortable being who you truly are and even sharing your vulnerably. When we can lead in this way, we create a space of security; one where people are willing to feel deeply engaged. Engagement, like leadership [...]

Reflection Time


Making time to reflect is as important as goal setting, strategizing and plans of action. Time spent looking back in introspection is useful. We are able to recognize & learn from our lapses, improve our efforts and repair any wrongdoing. There are often actions and relationships we could have handled differently. Situations or decisions [...]

See Yourself


Imagine seeing yourself in your best light. Appreciating your skills, valuing your creativity and trusting your contributions. Imagine self-doubt, judgement and second-guessing were a thing of the past. Now imagine that this is all possible. And accept that with one simple shift, it truly is. Today, see yourself from the outside. From the perspective [...]

Ripple Effects


All actions and words have consequences. I am fortunate to be reminded of this daily and to see how that even simple interactions can have such far-reaching effects.Everyone we come in contact with, be it intentionally or not, starts an undulation in the universe.  How you speak, what you say and do and what you [...]

Stop Resisting


Life always finds a way. Why not collaborate with it? Resistance only intensifies struggles. When we embrace challenges as opportunities we can get unstuck and grow. Although some negatively equate surrender with failure, in this context, it is not about giving up on life, but rather seizing to fighting with life. Failures may be as important [...]

Do Overs


Our lives and work entail inevitable positives and negatives. Therefore, our mindset determines our outcomes. Dwelling on the past may impede forward action, while recognizing opportunities may lead to greater successes. A shoulda, woulda, coulda monkey mind breeds anxiety given the irreparable nature of the past. A more constructive approach is refocusing on the [...]
