My 3-part burnout cure How to cure burnout in 3 easy steps

March 19, 2024

Are you hitting a wall? What does it mean to be a success? In your own eyes? And how do you know when enough is enough? One day last spring, I had been running on empty for so long that I up and left my laptop in a taxi. (Fortunately, it was returned by the […]

Is life an adventure? Or a tragedy?

March 5, 2024

I ask myself this question a lot. Escalating violence, sweeping intolerance, anti-LGBTQ attitudes, incidents of racism, sexism, transphobia, xenophobia, and all-out genocide in this country and the world have hit me, and many of us, like daggers of grief and rage to the heart. Add to that my own personal challenges of caring for an […]

Make 2024 the year of your pleasure

February 27, 2024

What is your pace? Your rhythm? Your flow? Do you zip through the day – spinning way too many plates, and getting off on how many you can keep in the air? I know I do that. We all get so many points for being busy. Or acting busy. As if our inherent value hinges […]

So, what do you want to be called?

February 13, 2024

We made our way up to the 12th floor of St Thomas’ hospital to meet him. He was 24 hours old. So tiny, so beautiful. My step-daughter was in bed, baby in her arms. Her husband, by her side. Big Ben and Parliament gleaming in the distance. “What do you want to be called?” they […]

Let’s talk. Who is with me on the pissed? There are so many good reasons to be mad. For me, these days, it’s genocide, racism, misogyny, global warming…just to name a few. What are you angry about, sister? Self-serving leaders? The cost of prescription drugs? The electric bill? Your partner who can’t put socks in […]

Is your masculine in overdrive?

January 2, 2024

I have to be honest… Motherhood absolutely overwhelmed me. From the first moment I pushed my baby out, I was absolutely overwhelmed with love, with worry, with fear, with responsibility.

My wish for you in the new year

November 28, 2023

I want to check in with you, [First Name], with all of us. It’s the week after Thanksgiving – how’s your energy? Your attitude? Your sense of wellbeing? Are you bouncing through the days, boundless and joyful? Or are you just slogging along…checking everything off, but feeling depleted and running on fumes? (Maybe more than […]

This time of year is so dense with feeling. If you love the deep, dark, rich range of human emotions – like I do – you are feasting right now. If the deep, dark, rich range of human emotions terrifies you – like they do me – you may feel somewhat tentative, somewhat overwhelmed, somewhat […]

November 7, 2023

Do you know what it feels like to be at the precipice of a huge sea change in your life? Ever been there? Are you there right now? If so, then you know, it ain’t always pretty. It’s vulnerable. It’s open. It’s scary. It’s messy. It’s so hard to believe in a reality that you […]

Raise your hand if you’re stuck as f*ck

October 10, 2023

Are you living a life that feels like yours? All yours? Is it an expression of what you value? Of what you love? Of who you are? If the answer is no…that’s probably because you’ve been too busy surviving, and serving, and being responsible, to pay any mind to what you want, and who you […]
