There’s power in the pause.

Thank you to my friend, Ami Lloyd, for sending me this quote earlier in the week with the message, “I thought of you when I saw this. You glow from within.”    If you needed to see this today, I hope it reminds you:   Don’t let go of your glow.   Last week, I [...]

Sorry I haven’t texted you back…

Quote via an  Instagram post by @elainewelteroth   This was a post I saw last week highlighting World Mental Health Day on 10/10/20.    It’s also a heavier version / example of some of my text replies (if I remember to reply ) for the past two months.    It’s not like this all of [...]

Take What You Need And Leave The Rest – Part II

If you’re a good friend of mine or in my private Facebook group, Women On The MOVE, you’ll get a good meme from me each morning, most days of the week. There’s nothing like a good quote, mantra, piece of advice or proclamation to set the tone for your day. I find them all over [...]

Is your surge capacity depleted?

Now, to be transparent: of course I created the contrast with those photos on purpose.    You looked, right? ; )    Obviously, there’s a whole glam situation going on in the first photo: there’s the glass of champagne (haven’t had one since that night), and the setting is an art museum gala event I [...]

Shots for everyone. I’m buyin’.

Zumba @  ClubSport: “Shots” … and two things:   1) Doesn’t the instructor look like Martina Navratilova?  2) I’ve always enjoyed dancing to some of the nastiest, grinding songs ever in classes  where I know some of the people in that room would not stand for it in any other environment : ) .  *  [...]

The Miracle of Play

I don’t usually throw my days away in a basket like that, but when you start thinking bad things come in 3s, and wonder why you’re getting a 6-pack instead … that’s where you land sometimes. Life threw me some challenges, but that didn’t stop me from the one job I gave myself when I [...]

Creating A Life On Purpose & With Purpose

Earlier this week, my dear friend, master coach, Susan Hyatt, shared our interview from her BARE documentary. It was a sweet surprise to see it show up in my newsfeed. This interview was filmed on 12/19/19. That experience was a whirlwind flight to ATL for a 36 hour trip to see some of my closest [...]

Do the things you wish would happen.

It’s always a good day to be a guest on Great Day Live! with host Angie Fenton.   I am grateful I can be a source of information and inspiration for my community; and, I have to admit I get a Laura-lift when I get to have a conversation (that’s not a text message) with [...]

The empress of your mind

Hey good people –   You can also listen to this week’s blog post (blogcast?) anytime and anywhere by clicking the pink logo: Coaches and counselors (myself included) who do any kind of mindset or thought work often say this:  “You are not your thoughts.”  When I have painful thoughts and feelings and offer myself [...]

Where do I go from here?

  “No one will be left untouched by the events and experiences of 2020.”   That is one of the only “This I know for sure” thoughts I’ve had this year. A lot of my 2020 new-decade-blast-off! plans had disappeared into the ether by late winter. A lot of y’all probably felt this way from [...]
