Being A Mom In Transition

As I get ready to celebrate my birthday shortly and our youngest leaves home for real now (the moving van pulled out today with the belonging of a lifetime to move some 3000 miles away), I am struck by the lack of anxiety that I feel and the real joy of our (her Dad’s and My) own accomplishment at this …

Expectations vs Happiness

For the past few weeks I have been traveling around the US.  What I have observed is that in a general way every single person that I have encountered has unrealistic expectations of just about everything that they are doing.  What I am coming to a conclusion about is that, our addiction to "Fast, Instantaneous, Nanosecond" action is making all …

Relationships

Each and everyone of us has been in some kind of a relationship.  Relationships come in all shapes and sizes and distinctions.  We have all had a relationship with other playmates and children our own age when we were small.  That grew into friendships, relationships with classmates, teachers, schools, sports teams, music teachers, church affiliations, clubs and organizations, even businesses …

Yesterday, I asked you what would you do to answer the bigger questions about owning your future.  What did you come up with?

Freedom & Owning Your Future Step #1

What does "Being Free To Live Your Life" mean to you?  Think back when you first felt your first taste of "FREEDOM".  Perhaps it was the first time you moved your tassel on your motorboard.  You thought:   "…boy! now I’m a grown up and I make all the decisions now!…"  Perhaps it was when you waved goodbye to your parents …

Joy In Continutity

Recently I had the pleasure of attending a Bar mitzvah for the son of a friend of ours.  My husband and I were extremely sore and tired after cleaning out a storage outdoor closet and several garages where we took everything out, sorted through 10 years of accumulations and threw away the old outdated things and put up support boards …

Shooting Stars

On any given night a person may look up into the night sky and see what is referred to as a "shooting star".  You of course know that it is a piece of something from space burning up in the atmosphere of earth and as it descends and burns up, to us it appears as a shooting star across the …

Transitions

Every minute of every day is a transition for someone, somewhere on the planet earth.  The next 5 days are each and every one going to be big days of transition for many members of my own family and my extended family.  How do you handle your transitions?  For our family there are going to be many happy moments of …

Curve Balls

What happens when you wake up and you are thrown a "curve ball"?  What do you do?  If you are like most people here on planet earth, you have a knee jerk reaction and immediately go into a panic about all the things that are going to go wrong with the next period of time that this curve ball is …

Finding Wisdom

wisdom you ever looked for "Wisdom"?  Since it is not a tangible thing that you can just go out and pick up at the grocery store, where would you go to find "Wisdom"?    Whom do  you label and equate to the word "wise"?  What are their qualities? Can one find "wisdom" in a particular place?  Where would you look? …

Double Mindedness

My topic today is "Double Mindedness".  I rarely hear this term spoken about nor debated or trained upon.  Do you know what it is to be "Double Minded"? Let’s explore this together as to its origins.  This comes from the Greek word translated "double-minded" is "dipsuchos", from dis, meaning "twice" and psuche, meaning "mind."  It is used to describe someone …

Mirror Image

What happens when we look into the mirror?  Well depending on what time of day you look into the mirror the reflection may be different.  First thing in the morning we may be shocked at our "bed hair".  Later after we shower we are the "wet head look".  As we do a final look see on our way out the …

How We Live

Today, as I went through my email, I came across two emails from individuals who seem to be in some kind of a searching process.  By all accounts on the outside they appear to be successful in their own right.  They are both successful  in their businesses and they photograph very well, beaming with success.  From time to time I …

Reality In Your Business Future

The blurring of what is actually possible in the advancement of a person in their career is a harsh reality for many.  I have often listened to a potential client who is wondering what their next step is in the climbing of the corporate ladder. The problem seems to come when they hit the reality ceiling that this thing called …

Whose Posioning Your Well?

Recently, I was driving down the road and I heard a story about "well poisoning".  That got me to thinking about this vessel that we inhabit called our body.  This is our well.  Our well has more than one entry point at which it can be poisoned.  How many entry points can you name and what you let in them?  …

Gates

Entry into your being through anyone of the points in which you can perceive anything into your body is a "GATE".  When we allow anything to enter our very being we are opening one and more often than not several of our gates.  When entry is gained other triggers go off inside of us, specifically in our brains. These triggers …

Ready For Opportunity

Did you ever stop and think that if "you ship came in", "opportunity knocked" or that big something happens that can propel you to the heights that you always dreamed of, would you be ready? The truth is most people are not ready to recognize, much less act on an opportunity. How does one stand ready to recognize and act …

Real vs Reality

I am observing a time of the "blurring of what is Real vs the Hype of Perceived Reality".  What do you mean by that, you may ask?  Let me be very clear here about where I stand on what you know, what you think you know, what is real and what is truly fiction. From our birth most of us …

Valentine’s Day

This past Valentine’s Day, I was with my sweetheart in Barcelona.  Barcelona is a beautiful city in the northeast corner of Spain.  Architecture is one of Barcelona’s tourist attractions and it is fantastic.  The people here have a real sense of who they are, where they come from, their family is involved in their everyday life and the history is …

Sticky Situation

  Etiquette is in a state of dignified decay. Earlier this year ,  the French “Bling Bling” President, Nicholas Sarkozy has been doing his obligatory State visits with his new girl friend Italian beauty Carla Bruni. Sarkozy is divorced from his wife of 11 years since October 2007. New and not so new behaviour is being played out for the …

Breaking Our Focus

Hey, did you just wake up?  March Madness is almost history.  This is what I  surmise from my clients sometimes when they suddenly WAKE UP and discover that the sun is still up when they come out of the office.  We are all bombarded everyday with things which are intended and on purpose meant to draw our attention away from …

Intersection of Knowledge

When was the last time you paid to learn something new?  What were your expectations for what you were going to go home with at the end of the day or week or session?    When I am taking a webinar, teleclass, seminar, or some other type of training for my own enjoyment and education, I choose topics that will expand …
