Crying over electrical boxes and starting again

Crying over electrical boxes and starting again

I hope your New Year is off to a great start, but if it’s not, remember you can start again. Each day, each minute, each breath is a chance to begin again. I’m learning and re-learning that with each part of the house construction project I tackle. I think something is going to go one […]

Can the holidaze be a sane and happy time?

Can the holidaze be a sane and happy time?

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the United States. Thanksgiving is the kick off to the winter holiday season. So before you’ve eaten lovely food and spent warm and fun times with family and friends, I wanted to take a moment to help you prepare for the holidays. In our culture, the winter holiday […]

Surrender or Stay the Course?

Surrender or Stay the Course?

You know those mornings where everything seems to go wrong?  Of course, because it seems that everyone has one from time to time. Well, I had one this week and it went something like this. Wake up ready for a happy day, only to discover cat pee on the kitchen mat after I stepped in […]

Lessons in Patience

Lessons in Patience

Last year about this time my partner, Peter, and I decided we were ready to move forward on the remodel we’ve been wanting to do to our house since we moved in years ago. The roof has leaked for too long, the bathroom floors are rotting away from water damage and my pink laminate counter […]

My hearts desires are overflowing my time. Happy Equinox

My hearts desires are overflowing my time. Happy Equinox

I was on a coaching call with a client last month and we developed the idea that we have a heart of desires bigger than our time capacity. It’s kind of like having eyes bigger than your stomach. We explored that one of the hardest parts of being a passionate, driven person is having to choose between […]

Start the New Year Gently

Start the New Year Gently

I know it’s so great. You’ve got a new start, a new beginning. And you can change and correct and make better all those things that are “wrong” with you or “need improvement.” And……it’s also wet and cold outside, the days are still short and, MOST IMPORTANTLY you are already perfect just the way you […]

Cherishing your Dreams and Aspirations

Cherishing your Dreams and Aspirations

Some ideas seem so far out of reach. A couple years ago, an addition, even a new roof seemed so far off, so out of reach for me.  But each year I kept putting images of my new kitchen and the beautiful garden and all those things I wanted my home to have and be […]

My varying ideas about the New Year

My varying ideas about the New Year

It’s always fun to look back over the things I’ve written about different subjects.  I’ve got two widely varying perspectives on Marie Kondo- from too much to just right. And I’ve taken many approaches to the New Year as well.  Sometimes I’ve questioned whether you really need New Year’s Resolutions, and talked more about what […]

What’s your winter wonderland like?

What’s your winter wonderland like?

It’s getting cold outside (if you live in the northern hemisphere) and even though there’s a little bit more light every day. It can feel a bit depressing and tiring. If you’re like me you want a cup of tea, a blanket, a fire and a good book, BUT- I’ve still got to take kids […]
