When Life Changes

I miss my friend. Terra died of cancer on October 4, 2022, she was only 46. She was a dear friend and true pillar in my weekly life.

Inspiration, Effort, and Flow

I love thinking about life through the seasons, especially the older I become.  Each season brings us a new beginning and ending-- weather, foods, flowers, plants, and trees.  Nature reminds us that nothing stays the same, yet there is a beautiful rhythm we can expect in life. The sun rises, the moon shines at night. The sun shines greater in sum... [Read More]

Plan, Action, Surrender, and Repeat

I want to focus on the power of surrender. The older I get, the longer I coach, the more I have the privilege of witnessing loved one's lives; what I know to be true is that there is a rhythm to life. There is an ebb and flow to life, like how the seasons have different feelings and energy associated with them, so does our individual life. Especial... [Read More]
