Have you ever been invited to step right up to the plate, and found you could not swing? Or turned down an opportunity for advancement, because you just didn’t feel ready to advance? Have you backed up against the wall when the door to success swung wide open for you? You are not alone. Most...

I was taking the elevator ride up to studio 6B at 30 Rock. Terrified. It was going to be my very first time on national television (The Conan O’Brien Show). I was petrified, I was excited, I was somehow built for this. I knew, deep in my soul, that the only way to guarantee my...

Sometimes hard things are just…hard. It’s not about you. It’s not that you didn’t do the right thing. It’s not that you didn’t do enough. It’s not that you weren’t up for it. Or missed the boat. Or gave too little. Or too much. You didn’t blow it, or screw it up, and it’s not...

As you more than likely know, I refuse to play small or be put in a traditional box. Shrinking, dialing down, keeping a lid on it just don’t work for me. Truth be told, I don’t believe they work for any woman. And especially if you found your way to my blog, I know –...

And what does all that guessing do to a woman’s fragrant, vibrant, delicious, intuitive, poetic soul?...

Is your light on or off? Right now. Take a quick test: Do you feel flush with enthusiasm? Beautiful? Strong? Confident? Good. Then your light is on. And, ummmm…. If you are annoyed or irritated by this question, your light is resoundingly off. There are lots of very good reasons why we dim our light,...

Oh, sisters, mine. I have been pawing the ground like a racehorse. Pacing back and forth in the wings, for a dozen years, waiting for this moment. My brand new book, Pussy: A Reclamation is hitting bookstores everywhere, today. Right now. This book has been burning inside of me for so long, waiting for the...

There is a part of creation that hurts. That could seem humiliating. Or embarrassing.   Creation is … chaotic. Feminine. Co-operating with forces, more than rules. Raw. Risky. Fueled by passion. Making no sense, sometimes. Choosing into a living, breathing truth that may be utterly unrecognizable to others.   I had my ass blown every-which-way-wide open...

So you’re stuck, huh? Have you tied yourself into a big fat twisted stuck-knot? Ugh. It’s the worst. Stuck is everywhere. And there are so many ways for it to show up . . . Stuck in a 26 year marriage, and it feels suffocating, sexless, and numb. Stuck because her whole life, she’s had...
