Beyond The Great Resignation… 5 Steps to Reinventing Yourself with Passion


Passion brought us here

Decades ago Coco Chanel spoke my future with these words:“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” I lived out Mlle Chanel’s words – cutting off all my long silky hair – when what I really wanted to do was change my relationship. Eventually, I did that too. And then my partner at the time and I both wrote songs about it!These are those kinds of times.One of my clients put it so simply in our last Creative Process Group: “I feel like I’m waiting on...

The Gratitude Antidote… Appreciation is the Cure


Growing up in Texas, I knew that every Thanksgiving my mother, the clear and present matriarch of the family, would end our meal with a single command. “Okay, now let’s go around the table and everyone say what you’re grateful for.” Eyes would roll. And the moans were audible. But out of deference to her (and because we didn’t really have a choice) we conceded. I was in my mid-30s before I began to appreciate this ritual. My father died the next year. And my mother was gone...

Create a (r)evolution. Start with your own life.


Mrs. Thelma Johnson

“A riot is the language of the unheard.” – MLK There is a great deal of adrenalized action in the world today. It was inevitable. We will never have peace in our societies until all our voices can be heard, no matter how uncomfortable those voices make us. There is going to be anger. There is going to be error. There is going to be misunderstanding… because we have not been listening. There is growing evidence that the only way we will heal from an intolerable shared...

“Go to your room.” What Mother Nature Needs You to Think About Now.


“That’s enough, children! Go to your rooms. And before you come out, I want you to think about what you’ve done to get here. Reflect on the consequences of your actions, and think about what you need to change to get along with each other. Is this really how you want to be?” This Sunday is Mother’s Day in the USA. And recently as I’ve reflected on our current circumstances, it’s all started to feel like it did when I was a child and things got a bit wild...
