I’ve always been impulsive. I am the action girl! Don’t think, just act, react! It served me so well most of my life… in high school I was involved in sports, clubs + activities and in college was always pioneering the next adventure with my friends. It was easy to be impulsive. I got a lot of stuff done. But now that I’m officially “adulting” (our definition of adulting is becoming parents, that’s when I really had to get it together)… so now in this phase of life, being impulsive is not such a fun trait. In fact it is down right debilitating. It’s not cool to be impulsive when you have two little humans who are way more reactive, spontaneous, irrational + crazy than you who have more of a right to be than you! Now it looks more like legit ADD.
Let’s face it- “working from home” is not always as glamorous as it sounds. Often times you are working MORE than you would if you were clocking in at a 9-5.

We all know the key to losing weight is to eat healthy and exercise… but it’s not always clear how to do this! Doctors have limited time with patients these days and end up sending patients out the door with these instructions but no clear process for getting started. Plus there’s lots of conflicting information about what to eat and how to exercise.
February is the month of love (well that’s what the marketers tell us with all the Valentine’s Day commercials and candy displays at the grocery store). Since I am approaching this year in terms of themes to guide my intentions for living I decided that February would be LOVE… but not superficial love that you can buy in candy form. Real freaking love. Love for myself, love for my family, my life, my daughter and most of all my hubby. Continue reading
I have been working on defining my personal offerings and “gift” for a year now. I’ve been doing this without focus and without a framework. And I’ve been doing it all wrong. I have been collecting ideas from the outside… looking at what other people with my credentials are doing. Or looking at “celebrities” in my field and trying to emulate what they may be offering to attract clients. I have been seeking the answers in the wrong places. The answers are never out there. They exist within us. Continue reading
