Stuck in the wrong lane

As I was driving to a meeting yesterday, I found myself stuck behind slow moving vehicles while the lane to the left seemed to be moving smoothly. It gave me an opportunity to really take a look at myself. How was I feeling? Frustrated. Foolish. Impatient. Frustrated and impatient because I felt restricted. But I... Continue Reading →


Giving a space to BE…

When you say "I heard you".....did you just hear or did you listen? When you say "I got your point".....did you just get it or did you understand?

Rediscovering yourself

Isn't it strange how life always leads you to where you're meant to be? Things that fascinated you as a child, in your early youth sometimes get left behind, forgotten as you grow older and get into the everyday race for college admissions, career, kids..... Years may pass by and then somewhere later on in... Continue Reading →
