That weight you’re losing….
That marathon you’re training for….
That business you’re building…..
Put the whip away.
Partner with yourself.
After all, it is YOU who will do all the hard work, the long hours, the late nights. Show yourself support, compassion, love and nurture as you embark on these valiant journeys.
Because at the end of […]
I know this from years of deploying this tactic with futile results.
Definition of a double negative for the purpose of this conversation:

Life is about contrast.
Light – dark
Love – fear
War – peace

Taking responsibility for your life is no easy task. And amongst everything it requires of us, courage is the most important quality to embrace. Often times, even in my own life, when I notice I’m out of balance or not in alignment, I will first attempt to ignore the brick wall I just ran right […]
First thing I did after I wrote that blog last night was immediately begin to re-read Julia Cameron’s The Right to Write (LOVE that book).
