Truth Byte #8

Ten minutes until appointment time. The room is ready, I am taking my mandatory ten deep breathes to clear my head and get aligned for the next client. Bracing myself as I am about to launch into five more back-to-back counselling sessions, followed by a movie night at the local elementary school and a sleepover at my house.   It’s…

Truth Byte #7

This weekend, I witnessed a tidal wave of miracles. I watched a man who had bad luck most of his life, fall to his knees and ask to know God. I watched women who were bent over by the weight of their lives stand up straight and claim partnership with the Goddess. I saw children literally grow up before my eyes as the adults that they had become…

(originally published in winter of 2016) It is flu season.   Around me, friends, family, and clients are dropping like flies, even those who were diligent enough to get the flu shot.   This got me to thinking: why does it take a total- body-drama for us to be willing to just stop and lay in bed for a couple of days? The reality is, most…

Truth Byte #5

I am going to let you in on a little secret: there is no other shoe. Rather than anticipating the next disaster, what if instead each one of us were to concentrate on what is really working right now?  What a refreshing perspective that would be for our colleagues, our family members, and even those strangers we haven’t met yet. …

How do you measure the success of your relationships?   Is it by how many likes or followers you have on a particular social media site? Is it how many missed calls you have when you turn your phone on silent?   Is it how many people light up when they see you?   Is it how many times a week your mother tries to reach you?   It is…

Truth Byte #3:

I am tired of people telling me they are fine when they are so clearly NOT fine.   Your marriage is breaking apart at the seams. That equals not fine.   You are grumpy when you start work, and grumpy after you're done. That equals not fine.   The only time you can relax is after you have had a drink or two, and only if…

Truth Byte #2:

I have spent years feeling bad about not starting.  I finally finished my Ph. D. and it was time to hang up my shingle and get to work.  I had all the resources, all the book knowledge, all the cheerleaders I needed, but something just wasn't working.   My business wasn't launching the way I knew it could.   I…

Truth Byte #1:

This morning, I was angry. At everyone. But mostly at myself. I knew I should have gone to bed earlier, and I woke up cranky with a full day ahead of me.   I rushed around, getting the kids bathed and fed and out the door, only to remember as we were getting into the car that it was pyjama day at my son’s school. So I ran back into…
