True Vulnerability


The true sign of vulnerability is showing up transparently, even when you are uncertain by how it will be received. Today, I write you openly and honestly to share that I have not been inspired to write a Foundfully Friday for the first time since I began in January 2018. During these trying and [...]

Choose Presence


There are things that come into our lives whether intentionally or synchronously that when we pay attention and embrace, have deep lasting impact. To identify and recognize these opportunities, we must be fully present and paying attention. With time distorted recently, where days fly by or seem interminable, we often find we cannot be [...]

Feel Your Feelings


Shelter in place. Quarantine. Lockdown. Stay home. Covid19. Coronavirus. Pandemic. However you describe this unprecedented time, one reality is that we are all in this together. Just as we may refer to these times and this situation differently, we will also all feel differently about it. It is necessary to not judge ourselves and to [...]

Do You


Whether in action or inaction. Motivated or paralyzed. We can only be ourselves. These unparalleled times call for exceptional kindness to ourselves. Accepting what is and furthermore, knowing that what is now, may not be so tomorrow. Being aware but allowing for forgiveness. When all else fails. When your focus is lost. Your heart [...]

What If


What If.... You pause today. What if you find gratitude in uncertainty. What if slowing down and being home is meant to help us. What if you choose to do less. What if your fears are meant to be felt. What if you embrace our needs and desires and not judge ourselves or others. [...]

Feeling Hopeful


We are all experiencing such an unusual situation. Something none of us have ever experienced. So many unknowns. So many kind gestures. So many opportunities for humanity. I am feeling hopeful for US during this time of social distancing. For each and every one of you. For doctors willing to do whatever it takes. [...]

Nothing Lasts


A certainty we all share is that change is inevitable. Nothing and no one stays the same. Everything is constantly in a state of flux. Knowing and accepting this can help bring a sense of comfort. Minimizing anxieties tied to fears of the unknown. Allowing what is, while trusting the law of impermanence brings [...]

Our Inner Child


What is at the depth of our feelings? How do we connect and heal from past hurts? How can we let go of embarrassments and judgments that created layers of self-doubt? In embracing our inner child and deep sensitivity, we heal old wounds and feel worthy. By loving that part of ourselves, recognizing it [...]

Selfish or Selfless?


There is a reason the airlines instruct us to put our oxygen mask on first before caring for others. Without doing so, we would not be able to help those around us. Same goes in our lives and businesses. When we prioritize ourselves, it often feels selfish or wrong. Truth is, unless we intentionally [...]

Finding Gratitude


Times when we feel disappointed and at a loss are tough. Testing our mood, patience and practices. Tapping into tools like gratitude can escape us at the very moments we need it most. Creating opportunities to practice when we feel ok, help us recall and use such resources when we don’t. Allow today to [...]
