I Don’t Think I Can Do It.

“I don’t think I can do it.” How often do we say this? I’d argue that it’s waaaaay more often than we even realize. We can limit ourselves so automatically that we can find ourselves wondering if this is truly the life we want to be living or if life has just sort of…happened to…

My Problem With The Body Positivity Movement.

According to wiki, the definition of body positivity is this: “Body positivity is acceptance and appreciation of all human body types. It is a social movement rooted in the belief that all human beings should have a positive body image, and be accepting of their own bodies as well as the bodies of others.” I like this definition. It sounds good to…

Everyday Miracles.

I want to share something that happened last week. Something extraordinary. And yet, had I been too busy to notice, the moment would have simply slipped away. It was a day like many others. Nothing special about it at all. Roger and I had just finished our workouts and were popping in to grab coffee…

Tearing Off The Mask.

While I know Rumi isn’t talking about the mask I wear with makeup and hair colour and big sunglasses, I know it’s part of it. And I continue to work on that daily. But what he really means is that in order to shine bright in our lives–in order to BE THE PEOPLE WE ARE…

STOP Eating SALAD!

Last week, I posted on Facebook that I am the world’s worst when it comes to taking pics of my meals because, most often, my meals are salads. I mean, even in winter, I eat salads for lunch almost exclusively and most often for dinner, as well. Now, before you feel sorry for me or…

Let GO.

For over a decade, I was a nightly drinker who embarrassed myself regularly, went to work hungover daily, and made mistakes more often than I could count. But after finally letting go of the life I knew and surrendering to the knowledge that alcohol could no longer occupy space in my life, I started on…

REAL Talk.

Last week, a friend of mine was really struggling. She reached out and we talked for a very long time. It was heartbreaking hearing her crying over the phone, but it also felt incredibly…sacred. I felt deeply humbled by her choice to confide in me and share the source of her pain. While I haven’t…

Walking The Talk.

Back in April, Roger left his toiletry bag behind on a trip we took, even though while we were packing up, I had reminded him not to forget it. When we arrived home and he didn’t have it, I knew I had two choices. I could chastise him and be angry that he was so…

We ALL Scream For ICE CREAM!

Last week’s post was a doozy, and I simply want to say thank you. Thank you to each and every one of you who took the time to read it and to comment and to share it and to be reminded that we all go through difficult times, but that we are not the pain…we…

“I Am A Pain To The World.”

Last week was tough. Two members of our human family committed suicide in the same week–Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain–and because their names are well known, their deaths acted as a glaring reminder about what is broken in our society. Mental illness does not discriminate, and as my friend Amy Dresner pointed out, “I think…
