Darling, I ran into a girlhood friend, Carol. We had not seen one another in more than 40 years. She has a quiet life in the country, married to her childhood sweetheart, and working as a high school guidance counsellor, in Vermont. In the last year, she and her husband separated, she battled diabetes, lost...

Darling, Let’s say you were making a drawing of yourself. And it was a drawing of how much you listened to your head, versus your body. What would the drawing look like? Would it be a giant head with a tiny body attached? Or a giant body with a tiny head? Like most women, I...

There is no worse word for a woman than stuck. We can handle pain.  We can handle loss.  We can handle chaos. There is a beginning, middle and end to those experiences. But stuck feels like slow asphyxiation. Like solitary confinement. Trapped with no oxygen, no windows, and no understanding of how to get out....

Darling, I am still drenched, saturated, steeped in the beauty, power, and cell-changing energy that we created in Miami. No kidding, Sisters. It was Nuclear. Fission. That’s what we were doing all weekend. Live alchemy. Which gets amplified in the most astonishing way when we come together as a community to kneel, together, at the...

Darling, 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. Light is everything. No light, no life.  It’s that simple. Do you notice women’s light? I am sure you do. You can tell right away whether it...

Darling, I have just gotten the single mother break of the century. My daughter has a whole weekend sleepover with a camp friend, in the country.  She gets fresh fall air, changing leaves, and giggling all night with friends, and I have time to ride my horse, catch up with friends, and sip a cup...

Darling, I spent a few intense hours last Sunday with my daughter, trying on clothes, making sure she had the perfect thing to wear on her first day of school.  The big question, as she tried on each different thing in her closet?  “Mom, do I look fat?” She is not fat. And this is...

Ohmygoddess! LOOK at your body. I mean, LOOK at it! Really. Look at it. What do you see? Do you see beauty? Flaws? Flab? I was having dinner with a friend in the Hamptons on Saturday night, and there was a moment when we were in her bedroom, getting ready for a party, and reviewing...

Life transitions… Such a polite way to describe what are really the dark nights of the soul, those dark, difficult turning points in life. Just when you think you have it all figured out… WHAM! Life turns you upside down and shakes you. I know that many of you are going through your own exploding version...

It’s Monday, Sisters, and I know, I know, I am a day early, but I just could not wait to inform you all of what is going down starting TOMORROW! I was overwhelmed and thrilled by the responses we received to our blog post requesting your deepest questions. The stories we read, the questions plead, touched me to...
