Have you heard that expression to go all in?
I've determined that I'm not all in.
"All in" is a phrase marketers and coaches will use to motivate. I may have even used it myself in the past. If you go "All in," then you'll...do this, buy this, join this, achieve this...etc.
But most of the time, I'm just not ALL IN.
I love my business, but I'm not all in, certainly not "all in" on posting 3x a day on social media and all the other things I should be doing if I...
Did you know that, on average, each day, you generate 50,000 words in your private thoughts?
That's equivalent to a short book or roughly 100 pages.
It's fascinating to think that your brain is constantly writing a book of thoughts (which could become beliefs) regardless of whether you're aware of it. This is why I work intentionally with my thoughts. Once I realized how much we "speak to ourselves," it prompted an important question. What genre is your thought book?
Did you see the Oscars this year? I was in NYC, and after seeing Little Shop of Horrors, my family returned to our hotel room and turned on the TV immediately, hoping to catch the end of the Oscars.
And that's when we watched Michelle Yeoh's historic win for Best Actress. Of course, seeing someone achieve a dream they worked so hard for always makes me emotional, but this was bigger than that. My eyes filled with tears.
In 95 years of awards given by the Academy, only two women of...
Do you know that draining feeling of being stuck because you can’t make a final decision on something? You keep ping-ponging back and forth between two choices or you agonize over the research or the details? It’s this classic overthinking which leads to limbo. It’s what I call the Wishy-Washy Gremlin.
Recently, I’ve been wishy-washy over picking two much-needed appliances because I got overwhelmed and worried about making the wrong decision....

Many people I know are ready for 2020 to be over. I get it.
Last year when I sat down to write to you about my annual reflection ritual, it felt really hard.
I wasn’t sure I could even bring myself to do my own ritual, let alone write something compelling about why you should join me.
A lot happened in 2019 that felt devastating. I went through some major losses, and a few...
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...
I have a confession. I showed up for a party with my invitation in hand feeling very righteous about being there.
It was a good ol’ fashioned, self-induced pity party!
One night while traveling in Vermont, I found myself alone on a bench in a beautiful town feeling bummed and disillusioned and sorry for myself. And it wasn’t long before I felt the hangover of too much pity partying.
I felt an ache in my heart, and a heaviness in my being and disconnected from...
