Lose your rhythm?

Without the rhythms that ruled my days in the past (school start times, yoga classes, circus training, soccer), I’m confused as to when to work, when to exercise, when to support my kids with school work. All the systems I created for my life, whether they were time management, client enrollment, or newsletter development and […]

What’s Hard for you?

What’s Hard for you?

Everything’s changed. Nothing’s the same since we all started sheltering in place and trying to flatten the curve. The changing expectations and shifting schedules are one of the hardest things so far. The constant presence of my family over the last month has turned my world upside down as much as I’m sure something has […]

Staying Calm in the Chaos

Staying Calm in the Chaos

No matter where you are in the world right now, Covid-19 is on your mind and most likely affecting your life. Those of us in the San Francisco Bay Area are ordered to stay home and avoid anyone we do not live with; no work as normal, no events, no school. This seems to be the […]

I might get a house to move into this spring.

I might get a house to move into this spring.

The house building process felt like it had slowed to a standstill this last month, but as usually happens when we persevere, the pace picked up again. We’ve gotten electricity, plumbing and insulation all complete and Sheetrock is going in this week. I might even have kitchen cabinets by the end of next week.  And […]

Happy love day

Happy love day

When I was young(er) I wanted Valentine’s Day to be special. I wanted someone special to surprise me with flowers or candy or something sweet. And I remember feeling disappointed more times than I can count that no one did what I wanted. Somewhere along the way, I realized that it wasn’t someone else responsibility […]

Where to put your creative energy?

Where to put your creative energy?

Creativity is one of the main drivers in my life- whether it’s professionally or personally.  I was a full time artist and art teacher years ago. And even though I’m not a full time artist anymore, I must create. Over the last 9 years, I’ve put most of that creative energy into my business, creating courses and workshops, […]

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 […]

Reality starts with a dream

Reality starts with a dream

The year is almost over…. and the decade is almost over too.  Let’s make your dreams come to life in 2020.  Take what you’ve learned so far and create what you want in your life and business next year. You can bring dreams into reality at any time, yet the energy that we collectively experience […]

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 […]

When the dust settles

When the dust settles

My family is now settled into our cute, cozy, rental house and the dust is settling from packing up everything, putting it into storage and being nomads over the summer. And as the dust settles from that, I’m finally feeling the huge emotional impact of knocking down my house. I was thinking about my house […]
