3 Steps Out of Self-Absorption

April 10, 2012

We have all been around friends or family that seem to be pristinely preoccupied by their own life experience. To the point that they often seem to be almost absent when we are together with them. They can talk all day about themselves and they never ask you a single question about how you are doing? Those people stand out to us as rude, immature, selfish and leave us feeling unfulfilled in the relationship. But, have you…

50 Ways to Get to Your Joy Default!

February 13, 2012

The True Power of a Mother

November 5, 2011

So today I made a vow….that I would, no matter what my kids threw at me. I would be patient. And I tell you, I needed to make that vow. We had friends over for dinner last night and it got late for the kids, but as you might well expect, they were up at the crack of dawn, ready for action (and food). Our little one hit the ground running in terms of complains and if…

Expect YOUR best!

October 23, 2011

It’s a loose, loose scenario for moms today. If we are all positive about motherhood, people think we are in denial or not admitting the hard parts of being a mom, if we complain about how hard it is, we seem disconnected to the beauty of being a mom and ungrateful for the blessing of having a child.
