Asking What To Do? Use the COVID Pause & Look Inside

The-Personal-Pause-Message-Artist

Well, here we are. In a pandemic. Not something I really ever thought I’d be saying. Our reality is not what we’re used to. Not only is business as usual not an option, but for some, business at all may not be an option. There’s a lot of fear about what’s going to happen and […]

Motherhood embodies so many vital things: nurturance, caring, kindness, giving, thoughtfulness, planning, preparation, and unconditional love, to name a few.

Don’t bludgeon yourself with the New Year’s resolution stick!

Throwing Resolutions Out the Window If your inbox looks anything like mine, it’s full of emails giving you ideas for New Year’s resolutions: fitness, health, business habits, etc, etc. It can be rather overwhelming. I get it … everyone wants a chance to start over, to make the new year better than the one before. It’s […]
