Sitting with the Right People

April 19, 2016

A couple of weeks ago, a baby shower was thrown for one of my work friends. The party was during a workday, during lunch time, and as I walked into the room, I did what almost everyone who walks into a party does. I noticed the decorations and the food and the gifts, of course. […]

The Deep Yes and The Brave No

May 23, 2014

In March, we bought our first electric car. Not only it is awesome not to have to buy gas every week, but it makes me feel like we’re really being as environmentally responsible as possible. We dished out big money to have all energy-saver appliances when we bought our home, we’ve signed up with the […]

Being. True.

A few weeks ago, we had several snow days here in Atlanta. Two, back-to-back weeks of icy roads and city craziness and no school and so I decided to do some crafts with my two year old son. I’ve had these pretty, red flat cards for years that I’ve been meaning to use and Valentine’s […]

A Present from the Past

Last week, I remembered something I haven’t thought about in a very long time. I remembered my 25-year-old self, rolled up in a ball on the wooden floor of the apartment I rented, doubled over with grief and a reality I could no longer deny. That was such a hard time. That was such an awful […]

The Red Velvet Rope

A couple of years ago, I took a class with this awesome business coach named Michael Port. I learned a lot of great things from him, but one of the most profound was his idea of the “red, velvet rope.” Michael was talking about a business concept but his philosophy was so unique that I […]

It’s your life. Own it.

The other day I was walking through Target when I saw their huge collection of new, tiny, barely there bikinis with a sign above them that read ‘Sale!’ “Ugh,” I thought to myself, “Swimsuit season has arrived. I’m going to have to figure out a way to get into a bikini.” A few weeks ago […]

The power of your environment

In the April 2013 issue of Psychology Today, author Ron Friedman cited “the most critical, and overlooked, factor in a job search” as the people with whom we work. Based on new research in motivational synchronicity, “by choosing to spend the majority of our waking hours with a particular set of people, we are not […]

Challenge #10: Mastering an Unspoken Language

August 31, 2011

0

Remember when your teacher told you to sit up in class to show that you were serious about learning? Or your mother got on your case about your bad posture? Or perhaps a friend told you how important it was to make eye contact in an interview. Your whole life people have been telling you, […]

Challenge #9: Your Personal Style

August 29, 2011

0

As I discussed in the post about Your Image, your feelings of self-worth are partly advertised in the ways in which you present yourself. In addition to making sure you are as physically healthy as you can possibly be (a sure sign that you value yourself), you’ll also want to make sure that the clothes […]

Challenge 8: Your Body: Your Temple, Your Pet

“Do you not know that your body is a temple of God?” ~The Bible “To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”  ~Buddha “Keep your body pure and clean for the soul to reside in.”  ~B.K.S. Iyengar, Yoga: The Path To […]
