Learning To BREATHE.

When I do speaking engagements or in my coaching calls, I often ask people what they believe the most important nutrient to be…like, is it protein? Carbohydrates? Fats? Water?

“How’s That Working For You?”

The Dr. Phil show debuted on September 16, 2002. I hadn’t been sober even two months when I let Phil’s southern drawl and no-nonsense approach to therapy seep into my consciousness on a daily basis. As a huge fan of Oprah, I had become familiar with him through her show, but it was exciting to come…

Animal Therapy.

When I was little, we didn’t have any pets. It wasn’t until I was almost 14 years old that we visited some friends who had the cutest little dog, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Monday (I LOVE this name for a dog), and I saw something in my dad that I hadn’t seen before.…

7 Day Post Vacation Detox!

This post is spurred by an old friend of mine who, for several weeks straight, posted his food and drink pics on Facebook. And while his meals certainly looked mouth-watering, he shared that he’d be ready for a re-set once he got home, so I suggested writing a blog post for him, and anyone else,…

BIG Love

I just finished reading Big Love by Scott Stabile. It was a joy to read, and I gobbled it up during a recent visit to the spa with Roger for his birthday. It was a truly decadent way to spend the day…soaking up the warm sun and enjoying the delicious words that Scott served up.…

Wait, WHAT? You Did NOT Just Call Me THAT.

I can not imagine being a mother in this day and age; where I have to teach my daughter self-respect and boundaries and what it means to stand in her power. Because in the year 2017, I am being called names like “stupid”, “slut”, “twat” and “cocktease” for a decision I made about my body.…
