What’s so great about spring cleaning?

What’s so great about spring cleaning?

It’s Spring….. happy sunshine and flowers…. This week’s the equinox. We’re headed closer and closer to the warmer times of the year. I know with all the rain here in California and crazy amounts of snow still in many places in the US and Canada, it doesn’t quite feel like spring yet. But… I would […]

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 […]

My brain is an idea factory

My brain is an idea factory

My brain’s an idea factory, but my body’s limited. I don’t know about you, but I go through lots of energetic ups and downs through my weeks and months. There are a handful of factors that effect my energy- the moon cycle, the seasons, my own cycle, whether I’ve been exercising, the weather etc. But […]

Thrift Stores are Marie Kondo-ed out

Thrift Stores are Marie Kondo-ed out

Last month, I told you my opinions and experience with the Marie Kondo craze currently happening in our culture. (And yes, I finally got to watch a few episodes of the show- well done and thoughtful.) With the success of Tidying Up, thrift stores across the country are over-flowing. Some are even turning away donations. […]

Are you on the Marie Kondo craze?

Are you on the Marie Kondo craze?

Happy New Year! I hope you thoroughly enjoyed your winter holidays, no matter what you celebrated, or how.  The best part of my holiday was getting time to step back from my action packed life of business, kids activities, computers and just BE for a few days. To just BE in our current world is […]

Closing out the year with reflections

Closing out the year with reflections

Even though the official start to winter is still a couple weeks away, I’m feeling the cold in my bones. I believe it’s because the days are so short as we approach the solstice. And isn’t it funny that the longest night of the year, the lowest point in the light cycle of the sun, […]

Taking Action in the Midst of a Hurtful World

Taking Action in the Midst of a Hurtful World

I received a 2019 calendar in the mail this week from one of my favorite SF non profits, Project Open Hand, and I suddenly realized that we’re approaching the close of the second decade of this century, this millennium, and I was blown away. I began to think about what I imagined the world would be […]

Can We still Create a Curated Life?

Can We still Create a Curated Life?

It use to be that as a culture we were limited in how much we could own music, movies, books, photos and so on by the amount of space we had in our homes. Yet now with endless digital storage, we can have more and more and more of all these things. We can keep […]

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 […]
