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 [...]

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.

Staying in the Miracle

This is my friend, Robert Hartwell.  Look what he did.  I can remember when he sent the first text message that said, “I found my house.” Robert wasn’t just attached to the house; he was committed. Attachment can foster fretfulness or doubt, while commitment is about devotion and purpose. Commitment is the spark for action. [...]

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 [...]
