You may have heard about Masterminds or may be wondering if this is something only science nerds do! I recently came back from a Mastermind and was really blown away with how connecting with other powerful women was so abundantly supportive to my inner growth. It tapped into a deep part of my soul, so that I could come back home feeling more centered for my family and more passionate about my work.
I recently had a talk with one of my clients. She is a strong and confident woman, especially how she shows up on social media. She inspires people and has written really compelling content. She is vulnerable and raw at times and it can be hard to read, I’ll admit. But with each stretch in her being a woman, she has started to have success.
And that is what has offended people, apparently.
Have you ever gone to conference or an event where you get totally inspired and injected with excitement with all the possibilities your life? Think Tony Robbins or Lewis Howes. (read my post about The Summit of Greatness)
It's that time of year again, where Summer is coming to a close and the nip of Fall has touched our senses. You can feel the hints of the cool air as you step outside in the morning, while still having a warm Summer afternoon. It's definitely changing.
In Chinese medicine, the Fall time is all about "letting go"…
Whether you read on a Kindle or an Ipad, it doesn't matter. For the most part, I truly enjoy the feeling of touching the pages and holding a book in my hands. I was recently asked by a good friend, do you really read all those books? And the truth is, I read about 85-95% of the books. I tend to skim over parts that aren't resonating with me in that moment. But, that doesn't mean I won't hit them up later at some point when I feel called to that book again. I get the meat of the book within the first couple of days and if it's really hitting home for me, I invest a night or two to really absorb it. I'm also a fast reader, so that does help.
There’s a misnomer out there about how if you make “everything perfect”, you will somehow succeed. If you have the right education or come from the right family. If you take the right course or just follow the right person on social media, your life can be just as perfect as theirs. Just like the lie of social media on an Instagram or Facebook feed. This is the "Martha Stewart syndrome" (before we all found out she wasn’t perfect and went to jail).
was speaking to a friend the other day who is a divorced single mom. She was really stuck in the story of how unfair her life had played out because she didn’t have a partner to share it with. My heart went out to her for the loneliness piece, but at the same time I saw how attached she was to this picture she had created in her mind. That it would bring her, the sort of, “answers to her prayers”. When we become so fixated on how that one thing will help us solve all our wants and desires, we tend to lose sight of who we really are in the process.
You love your friends and their friendships mean the world to you. You would do anything for them and they for you. That is until, their kid and your kid don’t get along. It’s the worst feeling because you love this person, but you may not always like how their kids act. Each parent, parents differently, and often times your way doesn’t match their way when it comes to the children. You may let your kids eat sugar cereals and they think that’s poison.
Well, it is the end of March. “Senior Season,” or “#SNRSZN” as the kids call it, is well underway. I can see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. Yet that light feels like it is on a train hurdling toward me at record speed and I should probably jump out of its way. The four of us recently attended the bar mitzvah of our dear friends’ son, and it got me feeling really sentimental. He is the baby of my “OG” mommy group, and this milestone truly felt like a finale to my kids’ childhoods.
