When it rains…it pours.

I’ve written and re-written this blog post a number of times in the past week. I kept hovering over the publish button, not sure about whether to publish or not…hesitating. My goal when it comes to these blog posts is to offer something to my readers, something that they can take with them and apply […]

big rocks vs. little rocks

Big Rocks versus Little Rocks

More often than not, we spend too much time focusing on the little rocks…   When I start working with a new client, one of the first things I ask them to do is to write a list of what they are doing right now to work toward their goals. So if their goal is […]


Balance – why I don’t think it means what we think it does

Balance.  We say we want it, but what does it actually mean? When I think of balance, the first thought that comes to mind is the lady justice holding the scale…now this could be that I spent 3 years of my undergrad degree studying law, but a balanced scale, or equal weight is often the first […]


Want to be ready for summer? Try these 4 things!

I cannot WAIT for summer to be here.   I don’t know about you, but I’ve got some major cabin fever going on. I am looking forward to the day when I can leave the house WITHOUT having to wear multiple layers of clothing.   If I’m completely honest, I need the warmer to weather […]

Focus on being more, not less.

A big shift happens when your focus moves from being less to being more… I was at the gym the other day and couldn’t help but notice that for the first time, other gym members weren’t invading my space.   By space I mean that area around you that feels invasive if others cross it. […]

I COULDN’T BE MORE EXCITED!!!   …and had this been a year ago, I also would be OVERWHELMED with stress! I’d be freaking out over all of the little things I needed to done […]

It’s Time To Kiss The 21-Day Fix Goodbye. Here’s How.

It’s almost the end of January, which means that many of the 21-day fix programs have either ended or are just about to finish up. This is usually around the time that another influx of quick-fix programs and easy solutions find themselves on social media and popular magazines. If one program is ending, it makes […]

The Case for Proactively Taking Care of Your Health

I used to only go to the doctor when I was sick. Or when something hurt. I would avoid those yearly check-ups, not because I was afraid, but because it was so inconvenient to drive all the way out there or to take time off work. And really, I felt fine, so why did I […]
