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...

After whipping my smoothie together, grabbing my gym stuff, tossing a green juice in my bag, scanning the NYTimes on my iPhone and ordering a latte – to go – it’s only 7:30am. Me, you, and who else? Then there’s my kid, who is vexed because she isn’t sure what to declare her major in,...

When was the last time you took a leap of faith? I mean a real leap of faith. The kind that makes your cells sing. And makes the earth not only shake with you – but applaud you with little trails of generously sprinkled signs that you are on the right track. Where you weep...

I am writing from a small café on the Champs-Elyseés, soaking in the final moments of my time in Paris (pics below!). After four days together in this breathtaking city, we just completed the graduation session for the Creation Course, and I’m overflowing. Overflowing with pride, with joy, and with volumes of gratitude. These women...

It is so easy to make the same choice over and over and over again. Making a bold decision, and stepping into something new is almost impossibly difficult. Usually we have to be chased by something achingly painful – like a viciously unhappy relationship. Or deep physical discomfort. Or a job we hate that does...

A really really really really good friend of mine, Ayo, got engaged last month. For the very first time. At age 68. This was not a likely thing to have ever happened in this world. She came from a single mama who raised her alone. And she had been a single mama, raising her daughter...

Sister Goddess Patty, Age 54 I was born in a car in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on my way to the hospital. In those days (1960), since my mother gave birth before arriving at the hospital, I was considered “contaminated” and had to stay in the room with her instead of the nursery. She had often told...
