Broke Or Out of Shape?

Something that I find interesting is that many of my clients explain to me a trait they’ve discovered in themselves that is tripping them up and obviously a flaw in their character that needs to be fixed.  Unless they feel that they are tragically broken and can’t fix it therefore they need to work around it somehow or be doomed forever. …

The Cardboard Cutout

Since I’m on a roll with ways in which we seem to be connecting with and honoring others while not actually doing that, I’ve got a couple of more for you: “You’re perfect” and “I’m so proud of you”.  I mean, what could be wrong with being seen as perfect or having someone be proud of who you are and what you do. …

Time For Some Thrilling Heroics

Thrilling HeroicsThere’s a time to plan and there’s time to implement the plan.  Planning just a wee bit more or evaluating the plan just one more time doesn’t actually add anything to the endeavor.  In fact, it wastes time, effort, and sometimes the patience of the other people involved. …

How Did It Become About You?

Something that just really hit me over the past few days is the interesting ways in which we honor people. It’s been on my mind a bit due to the passing of Leonard Nimoy.  He was an amazing man in so many ways including being Spock, being a great director, a talented photographer, a genuinely kind and good human being, and so much more. …

Newsiness

Most of us have experienced nosiness.  People who are overly interested in us, in the minutia of our lives, who need to know even though they really don’t need to know.  It’s worse if they feel the need to comment on what they think they need to know. …

But What If?

It’s great to be able to see the big picture and to look at all the possible outcomes of taking this action or that.  It’s a great way to make a plan of action, but looking at all the components and possibilities and putting things together from the best of all of it. …

Spirituality Like Old Jeans

…fabulous for being lived in.  😉 I’m currently reading The Gift of Kabbalah: Discovering the Secrets of Heaven, Renewing Your Life on Earth by Tamar Frankiel and I love how she speaks about this universal truth: All of us have the gifts we need to reflect the image of God, each in our own unique way.…

The Lost Pieces

A client’s comment reminded me of this recently.  They said their mother had died when they were between 3-4 years old and so they didn’t have that experience of having a mom in their lives.  They had a wicked-stepmonster (my word) who was a defining presence in their life, but not in a good way. …

Emotional Scapegoats

It’s very much true that we should actually listen to our emotions, hear what they have to say, and weigh that wisdom with the other voices going on inside us to find our soul’s path.  Sometimes that means doing what we feel like doing in the moment because that freedom allows us to unfold, sometimes it’s getting tall and strong by taking on a challenge that leads us to feeling victorious and accomplished and vindicated. …
