This week, I’m doing annual planning ( big picture) even though I don’t know all of what I’m doing next year and nitty gritty planning of my Reflection Ritual. I know the energy and laser coaching of Friday's Work on It Workshop will get me fired up and focused to finish. Are you coming? There is still time to join us here.
Planning creates structure, and when done well, it also allows us to be flexible because we all know that plans have to be...
This email is long. So feel free to skip it and come back next week.
I wrote most of it in my journal. I decided to share it because you most likely remember this, are experiencing it, will be, or know someone who is.
Last August, we helped Ethan – our only child – move into his dorm for his first year of college.
It's a big milestone moment for any kid, but it felt like one of the most significant in my journey as a mother.
On the one hand, it was ...
July marks the mid-way point of the year!
As an education major, I trained in how assessment and review are key pieces of the learning process. It’s how we determine progress (or lack thereof), what needs attention, and if objectives are met and on track.
In my own life, I do reviews and reflection rituals. I’ve shared them with clients to do in your personal life, for your work, and especially for your business if you are an entrepreneur.
The following review process can be...
I was going to write you a love letter, but it became a letter of longing.
I long for time to slow down. I’m not ready for it to be the halfway point of 2023.
I long for connection and conversation that feels meaningful + warm, + uplifting, even if the topics are heavy and emotional.
I long for a break from the bad news of corruption, hate, dysfunction, and destruction that comes at us from all sides. I long for a respite from the heartbreak of the comment...
Hey everyone, I was invited to have a conversation with Coach Michael Taylor on his new podcast Not Okay with Gray which is about empowering men and women to change their mindsets and attitudes about aging so they can make the rest of their lives, the best of their lives.
We discussed female empowerment, my journey, and some of the work I do.
Do you have a graveyard of notebooks hidden away somewhere in your home? Do you keep a journal but rarely revisit the entries? If so, you may be missing out on valuable insights and inspiration.
It's easy to forget the value of our notes and journal entries, but they often contain a wealth of ideas, thoughts, and aha moments that can spark creativity and offer guidance. If you attended a course, workshop, or conference and took notes, go back and read them. If you keep a journal, go back and...
Throughout my decade of coaching and leading women, I have come to believe in the transformation of giving ourselves grace and forgiveness as a way to really care for our physical and emotional well-being.
Forgiving yourself is difficult especially if it was never modeled. How could you ever be “enough” if you were conditioned to carry around your guilt like a badge of honor designed to keep you “humble”?
As a human be-ing, you will make mistakes and poor choices, act...
Today is the Autumn Equinox here in the Northern hemisphere.
Seems strange to imagine that this is a day of equilibrium between the light of day and the darkness of night. Strange to think of the concept of balance when all the imbalances and inequalities of the world are on full display.
And yet here we are. September 22nd, 2020.
Today marks the still...
