Some Days, We Hold Both

Lately, I’ve been reflecting on duality.  Yin and yang.  Happy and sad.  Brave and afraid.  Right brain and left brain.  Today and Some Day.  The question I keep coming back to – How do we hold both? Some Day & Today Life comes with tradeoffs.  My today is both limiting and enabling.  Empowering.  Inspiring.  So,... Continue Reading →

Some Days, We Are In Transition

I love this time of year.  For many reasons.  One big part of this is that it is a time of transition.  Transition into the holiday season (my favorite).  The winter solstice taking us from darker and darker days to increasing light.  Transition into the new year.  New beginnings.  Possibility.  My career transitions have always...

The other day, a... Continue Reading →

Some Days, We Have Great Expectations

Being a grown up.  That big move.  Marriage.  Having kids.  The promotion you’ve been working towards.  The career you thought you wanted.  We have great expectations.  About all sorts of things.  And it’s wonderful and exciting.  Developing a vision for what is possible is powerful and motivating.  It’s that fire that keeps you engaged and...

Some Days, We Are Reborn

Each year at this time, as the birds start to chirp and the cherry blossoms burst in the cool spring skyline, I am taken with the metaphor of rebirth.   For as long as I can remember, and most certainly since I was old enough to yearn for something more, this time gave me hope,...
