  We have all been at this Covid thing for a while now!  What was supposed to be a Shelter in Place for just a few weeks has turned into months. In so many ways we don’t know what is ahead. Our jobs, the economy, our children’s education, our business’s future and more are all in a cloud of uncertainty. Do we start up our startups? Do we make vacation plans? When can we just have a normal gathering and eat hamburgers and ice cream together again rather than those drive-by birthday parades or...

The gift of being known and loved…..

The gift of being known and loved…..

these two. i have known them forever. we are growing old together. they know me. they know the parts of my story that are beautiful. they know the parts of my story that are not. when my story is beautiful, we dream and laugh and eat good food together. when my story is filled with pain, they are Comfort. their words are warm and few. they sit with me and listen. they cry. they tell me they love the hell out of me. they hold me tight and don’t let go. they pull me onto the dance floor when my...

The work of personal growth….

The work of personal growth….

What is this work of personal growth? Is it about rejecting parts of ourselves? Is it about forcing ourselves into being something different than we are? Is it about being who others want us to be?

Do you celebrate?

Do you celebrate?

Do you celebrate? Or do you just keep going? Are you a business owner, entrepreneur, artist, student, barista, or a team leader that is doing all the things it takes to get to the big goals and there are no breaks between for celebration? There is a lost art to celebration. We have forgotten that it is important. It impacts our forward motion. If we don’t celebrate, we are just on the seemingly endless uphill journey of hardness. We see only the goal, and the failures or ‘two steps backwards’...

Where is your EQ?

Where is your EQ?

Hey, Friends! Where is your emotional intelligence? Is your emotional intelligence on the experience side of your brain? Or is it on the bookish side of the brain? Did you know that we can know all the things there are to know about emotional intelligence....and still not have it? We can read all the books. We can listen to all the podcasts. We can be totally bookish and smart about it. We can examine it. Define it. Name all the parts of it. But it is not until we are in the correct...
