A few weeks ago, an incredibly brave woman stood up at my intro class and broke open the room with her vulnerability. She stood there, voice trembling into the microphone. “When I went to the gynecologist, she said my vagina had atrophied. What?!” Bam. Ouch. WTF. Atrophy. Atrophied. We all took a collective deep breath....

Here’s the truth: I was an absolute brat to my kid yesterday. It was not my shiniest moment. My kid’s in the middle of midterms. And I criticized her on her way to her math exam. And then, she criticized me for criticizing her. Ba-bam. Later that day, I found myself being bratty with my...

I never really wanted a dog. I am more of a cat person – the coming, the going, the ignoring you, the keeping-their-distance thing was way more my style. I value independence. But, raising a single child as a single mother in the city that has more single people than families, that has lots of...

I have been reading all of the news about Planned Parenthood and finding the situation very difficult to process. Yes, I am shocked. Yes, outraged. Yes, disgusted, angry, frustrated . . . all of that and more. It is so easy to blame. To name-call. To meet negativity with double-down negativity. But we all know...

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...
