Twelve years ago, when I was deciding to name my business, it became clear that it must be GreenLight. Many people hear GreenLight and think it must have to do with GO, like go forward, take action, keep moving. the name actually came from my first experience with the Green Flash in Kauai, HI. ...

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...

It’s a New Day, Every Day!
Happy Summer! This time of year is a great time to re-evaluate your intentions for 2014. We are half-way through the year. You can acknowledge where you are on track as well as where you need more attention and focus to keep your 2014 intentions alive and flowing. Like many, I like to pick a theme for the year. My 2014 theme is EASE. My 2013 ... [Read More]Filed Under: Flourishing
What is Your Purpose?
What is your purpose? What does purpose mean to you? I like thinking of purpose as a verb rather than a noun. The definition of purpose as a noun is the reason for which something is done or created, or for which something exists. Purpose defined as a verb is to have as one's intention or objective. When we think of purpose as a verb it sets our... [Read More]Filed Under: Purpose
Boundaries are so important – especially during times of transition. Conscious change takes commitment and action. Before we take action we often need to envision what we want and in what direction we are heading. Once we have the vision, it is inevitable that routines and schedules need to change in order to realize it. When you begin coachi... [Read More]Filed Under: Flourishing
Compare and Despair
This time of year can feel like hitting the restart button, a do-over, or fresh slate. It is a good feeling to stand in January and look at the year ahead, all the possibility. Many people make resolutions such as get a new job, lose weight, quit smoking, create an exercise routine, and/or find a partner. I love thinking about the future, dreaming ...

Do you ever ponder the ebb and flow of life? How sometimes we are in action, sometimes we are in planning mode, sometimes we are resting and sometimes we are in celebration. There are many layers of energy in life. I think we all have internal seasons and sometimes our internal season does not match the external season. For example, we are curren...

How Do You Practice Self-compassion?
How many times a day do you find yourself in negative thinking? It could be negative talk toward yourself or judgment of others. It could be judging the way someone else is doing something or judging yourself for not being on time. It could be judging the person in front of you in line as he takes a long time ordering at the coffee shop or it coul... [Read More]Filed Under: Connection
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]Filed Under: Flourishing
Allow This Time of Year to Nurture Your Soul
This time of year (season) is a calling to slow down, reconnect, plant the seeds you want to harvest in the Spring. It can also be a time of stress with the Holidays and travel. I want to encourage you to follow the lead of the season and slow way down. Allow the natural cycle of going inward, and quieting the mind to take place. Notice what sho...
