weekly chocolate

April 30, 2010


Wild Geese by Mary Oliver You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. […]

How to say no gracefully

April 29, 2010


Many of my clients tell me that one of the things they struggle with the most in interpersonal relationships is how to set appropriate boundaries. Specifically, how to say “no” to things they do not want to do. Boy, do I know where they’re coming from! As women, we often strive to please others and […]

The Dating Program of Three

April 26, 2010


As part of my ongoing dating and relationship research, I have recently purchased Diana Kirschner’s book Love in 90 Days. First let me say that I do not agree with every piece of advice that Dr. Kirschner presents in this book. However, there is something to which Dr. Kirschner advises single women to do that I […]

(This meditation is from one of my favorite relationship coaches, Katherine Woodward Thomas. ) -Sit in a comfortable and relaxed position.

A little note about self-worth

April 22, 2010


My brother sent me these gorgeous soaps from France for my birthday. They were incredible-I could smell them as soon as I opened the UPS box.

“All you really need is love, but a little chocolate doesn’t hurt now and then.” -Lucy Okay, I know. A little blog entry is certainly NO substitute for chocolate. But since I delve into so many deep issues and thoughts on this blog, I thought it might be nice to have a weekly dedication to […]

When things fall apart

April 14, 2010


This week my computer picked up some awful, sneaky virus that somehow made its way through my antivirus system. You can imagine how freaked out I was. My entire business is in my computer. Everything. All of my coaching programs and workbooks, all of my advertising stuff, all of my research. Not to mention how […]

8 steps for dealing with rejection

April 12, 2010


So you put yourself out there. You put your precious, vulnerable self out into the world in a big way.  Perhaps you were feeling brave. You were feeling confident. You were feeling like it was time to unveil your heart. You were scared but you did it anyway. And then, it all came crashing down […]

welcome to a whole new way of being in relationships

April 7, 2010


Recently I decided to give my life coaching company a makeover. What I mean is, after weeks of debating and over analyzing and going back and forth and then back and forth again, I finally felt ready to choose a specialization (or a niche if you’re into all of that business jargon). And you know what? I’m […]
