It’s Such a Surprise

ENJOY THE AUDIO RECORDING OF THIS WEEK’S BLOG BY CLICKING here OR THE PINK ICON TO LISTEN: A few weeks ago, my friend Cindy started sending me a link to a web page about an open call for models for a Kentucky Derby fashion show. She’s seen a lot of the photos that I’ve had [...]

The five “power questions” to ponder and answer

I’m always coaching my clients to write things down. Journaling. Write “thought downloads.” Write down five things for which you are grateful. When I’ve practiced that in my own life (and I still do almost every day), it has had a remarkable impact on my life. A food journaling practice (that helped me observe my [...]

One Big Holiday: Your Extraordinary Ordinary

I told my husband a little secret of mine the other day that I was hesitant to admit to anyone else. I love the holidays and look forward to them. Thanksgiving Day is special. Christmas is joyful and a family ritual and milestone I love each year. But, I told Bobby, those single days don’t [...]

Bringing It Back & Letting It Go

Bringing It Back & Letting It Go

Fall is here, good people. It’s my favorite season because it feels like a cool, fresh start. It’s also so cozy and full of promise. That a sweet combination.

Woman on Wire

Have you seen the 2008 documentary Man on Wire ? It chronicles the story of how a young Frenchman, Philippe Petit, plotted, planned and staged what he called “the coup” — his code name for what ended up being his ethereal, mind-blowing tightrope walk between the two World Trade Center towers in August 1974. I am moved [...]

There are actually writers, reporters and photographers all over my city of Louisville, Kentucky this week doing just that, and many more eloquently that I will. What I know is what it means to me — a [...]

Sometimes you don’t need a complete do-over, makeover or renovation…maybe you just need another set of eyes and an open mind to help you see things in a fresh way. Maybe you need someone who can help you excavate all of the treasures you already have — the ones you’ve been staring at for months, [...]

How to get everything you want

Do you know what you want?  That’s the first order of business when a client hires me to work with them as their coach — to determine what you want they want in life. And I offer you grounding in that quest by guiding you to name the feelings, desires, and values and you want [...]

“You couldn’t play small, even when you tried…”

  I went to a ball almost two weeks ago that celebrated the start of Derby Week in Louisville (which actually is more like three weeks long, but nobody’s complaining about that around here — we love it). I love, love, love a gala event and a chance to dress up, have someone play with [...]

What’s Already There

Almost two weeks ago, I held my Women, Wine and Vision workshop for over 45 women. I guided them through a creative process that allowed them to dream about what was possible for their lives and literally create a vision around that. It didn’t have to have to be logical. It didn’t have to make sense to [...]
