Profound Insights and Feeling What We’re Feeling

It’s back to school time. I live in an area with year round schools but I’ve been seeing back-to-school pictures and posts since July. It’s this time of year, however, when traditional schools return to class that remind me that I will soon be entering the months leading up to Leah’s accident. The new school [...]

Lessons from 2017

As this year winds to a close, I’d like to share with you what I’ve been reflecting on for the last few weeks. At this time last year I was preparing for my book to be published and starting to think about how I was going to market it. When I revisited my musings from [...]

A Good Death

Last week at the Raleigh Death Café  a participant’s question about what constitutes a good death prompted much discussion. As I listened to the interesting conversation I flashed back almost 17 years to Leah’s hospital room. I remembered holding on to every thread of hope as we conferred with her doctors. I remembered Dan helping [...]

Tails From the Road

In the past month I have traveled to two book events, one in Boulder, CO, and one in Minneapolis, MN. I’ve begun to write about each of them several times, but it took awhile until I was ready. Even though the content of each event was similar, I received unique gifts from each of them. [...]

Striving for Perfection

What comes up for you when you hear the word perfection? Many of us spend our lives striving for perfection, believing that we cannot live the life of our dreams until we reach this illusive quality. We put conditions on ourselves and beat ourselves up when we are not able to achieve what we perceive [...]

Progress on My Book

The last few months have seen me spending an abundance of time on my book. Late last year, as I was reflecting on 2015 and looking forward to this year, the top goal on my list was to publish my book. To go from forthcoming author to published author. I knew, in order to do [...]

Spring and Transformation

The weather in Raleigh was warm this week. Each day as I walked around my yard I watched life returning to my plants. Early in the week there was just the hint of green on the end of my blueberry bushes, my elderberry bushes, and my peach tree. As I cleared away leaves from some [...]

Feeling All of Your Feelings

I have been thinking a lot about feelings lately. Social media inundates everyone with demands to think positively, to be happy, and to not wallow in negative feelings. The double dose of holiday cheer, followed by New Year’s resolutions to think positively, can make you wonder what is wrong with you and you can feel [...]

Love Yourself Anyway

The last few weeks have been full. Lot of ideas have been coming in and lots of old stuff has been coming up to be released. As the seasons shift between summer and fall, I have felt shifts in my life too. These shifts have been in both my personal life and business life. I [...]
