Boundaries

  Boundaries are a gift that you can give to yourself and everyone around you. They give you freedom from guilt because once you've set them, everyone knows the rules and parameters. They know what to expect. If people don’t know what you want, they are unable to give it to you!   Recently, a client of mine who initially fought systems and boundaries tooth and nail realized that having succinct systems and boundaries gave her the freedom she had been searching for. You see, it opens up the rest of the world for you. It allows you to lean back on them and feel confident in your choices.   If this sounds like something you want to know more about, check out my boundaries

Thoughts on no longer having a three-year-old

In less than a week, I will no longer have a three-year-old. In fact, I will never have a three-year-old again until I am a grandmother. I have four children. So, I've had a three-year-old four different times — and the idea of not ever having another three-year-old is a concept that is unexplainably and uncontrollably heartbreaking to me.   I'm not sure what it is about the age of three that is so enlightening and magical. Perhaps because there is still such childlike wonder but the brain has started to develop so they're funny and they communicate and they're becoming tiny little people while still being your little baby.     As I sit and ponder my future without a three-year-old, I start to

The Return of The Phone Call

  I’ll be the first to admit it. I never really enjoy talking on the phone—well, at least not since I was a teenager and my parents installed a second line so that their phone wasn’t constantly ringing busy. As the technology industry boomed, I got more and more dependent on all of the other ways to communicate.   First, there was just email, then there were text messages, then there was Facebook. So there was never really a need to pick up the phone and call someone. In fact, I found myself getting annoyed when people would call me. I don’t really have the time to talk, or so I would tell myself. I don’t really want to stop what I’m doing and talk

The importance of having a tribe.

  Today I want to share something with you that I don’t think people talk about enough. This is one of the biggest myths out there.   I could never do it “all” without my tribe.   That’s right, my tribe, my people, my personal board of directors. My partner told me recently that I juggle all the balls better than anybody she's ever known, and I make it look easy. While that is a really fantastic compliment, I am here to tell you I could not do it without my tribe.   So, who, you may ask, is my tribe?   Well, my partner, who's a complete badass, and encourages me constantly. She asks me for advice (this is important because it means she

Choose intention instead of regret

Trust me when I tell you, you are not too busy to take action.  In fact, it is so imperative that you do these things, these things that you don’t really think you have time for but nag at you.  The phone call, the visit, the new business, the hug, the kindness, the generosity.  Whatever it is, that in the back of your mind pulls at you and says, “I should do this” and you think “I’ll do it later, I’ll do it next week, I’ll do it next month, I’ll do it next year … there’s time.”  But time goes whenever it wantsOne second you wake up and there’s no more time.
