I do not want to say yes to this contrast.

We’ve been moving for the last week. We did so great. We hired full service movers to pack, unload, unpack. We flew out the day that the movers arrived. We didn’t even supervise the move. We flew private, brought the bunny. All that stuff was great.  Then four days into being in Sedona without our stuff… I’m pregnant, my feet are swollen, there’s no furniture, I can’t put my feet up on anything except the […]

TRUST the realness – don’t fake it till you make it!

There’s a lot of ‘fake it till you make it’ positivity in the world. (I’m sure you’ve noticed.)  How do you feel about it?  Personally, I’m skeptical.

A Life Changing Practice, but First Make it a Habit

You are standing at a fork in the road.  We all are. Anytime you’re thinking of making a change in your life, anytime you’re growing and transforming, there are two paths you can choose. The one you’re already traveling on, and the one that will take you where you really want to go.  It’s not always obvious.  Our subconscious makes noise to obscure the truth from us because it doesn’t want us to change.  So […]
