The Why and the What

I am on my journey these last few weeks but the road is bumpy. Whether it is my doing or simply life throwing me a curve ball I feel mostly lost. This is when I need to take deep breath and remember the why and the what that got me here. We all have times... Continue Reading →

Changing Ourselves

When are we good enough? This seems to be a constant issue in many people’s lives including my own. When are we good enough? What are we doing to help ourselves, others, and the world around us? When are we done? Are we ever done? Perhaps not. It is difficult topic because we don’t have... Continue Reading →

Life Coaching

Communication

Communication can define a long-lasting relationship or one that ended too soon. In the 80’s Spandau Ballet had a song called Communication and the refrain was “communication let me down”. However, communication doesn’t let us down. We just stop communicating in a productive way. Whether it is that someone in the relationship stops talking or... Continue Reading →
