  • Six Building Blocks for Better Listeners

    Six Building Blocks for Better Listeners

    How many people do you have in your life who truly listen to you?  Listen fully, without judgment and even help you hear yourself better?  Probably not very many…  As I’ve asked this question in workshops over the years, rarely can people name more than three or four people who hold this kind of place…

  • Impact or Intention?

    Impact or Intention?

    I intend to be conscientious and careful as back out of my narrow driveway multiple times of day. And although it’s daytime, and there is no radio, talking, texting or even anyone in the car, I’ve managed to swipe the driver’s side mirror off by the way too close proximity of my car to the…

  • Golf


    Golf…I’ve always wondered about the fascination with golf, and certainly never thought it would be a sport for me.  Emily, my daughter, and I took lessons this summer.  Perhaps it was the gorgeous, warm but low-humidity summer that gives the season a great reputation, or perhaps it was some unique mother-daughter time. A serene, park-like…

    Is the Glass Half Empty of Half Full?

    I read this post recently, and thought it was a great twist on a common expression…Just had to share! A young lady confidently walked around the room while leading and explaining stress management to an audience with a raised glass of water, and everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, “half empty…

  • Making Room

    Making Room

    I didn’t know what a “clothing swap” party was, much less, what to bring or what I would find that evening. The idea behind the swap was in purging what you no longer wore or wanted from your closet, you could trade those items with someone else and both be better off than you were…

    Be Purposeful

    “One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. ‘Which road do I take?’ she asked. ‘Where do you want to go?’ was his response. ‘I don’t know’, Alice answered. ‘Then’, said the cat, ‘it doesn’t matter which road you take.’ Energy comes from purpose, and…

  • Being Present

    Being Present

    I didn’t know it as a child, but now I recognize the gift my father gave me by being present.  He had the ability to stop what he was doing and truly focus on others, and listen to not just words, but what was behind those words.  As a parent, it can be challenging to…
