Stepping Out

April 23rd, 2013
It was one of those wet blustery days where if you own a pair of purple patent faux leather boots, you must wear them. I like purple, and I like shiny. Nobody loses when one wears such boots on a grey afternoon. So our family and my boots dashed in the rain from our  car […]

Searching For Soul

March 11th, 2013
Is there any such thing as a soul? If so, what is it, where is it and why does it matter? People often think of the soul as something that’s added to a person at conception and leaves them at death. Then there’s the belief called “Frisbeetarianism” where the soul leaves the body at death […]
We program kids from a young age to measure their worth and happiness by what they do rather than who they are. While they’re busy being in the moment, playing in possibilities, what do we do? We ask them, “What do you want to do when you grow up? What are you going to do? […]
1. I have a louder than most would agree necessary laugh 2. A wonky social filter that kicks in sporadically. 3. An eye for sorrow lurking in corners. 4. A stubborn unsubstantiated confidence that the best in life will always bob up to the top. 5. I don’t wake up well. If given time and […]
Being authentic is one of, if not THE highest ideal in life. We all aspire to know and be the fullest and freest version of who we are. What do you do when your decision to live authentically clashes with others? Its like the old saying “My karma just ran over your dogma.” Does there […]

When Being Authentic Hurts

January 30th, 2013
A friend made a decision to leave a job recently. It was  a hard decision for her, because even though she knew it was the right time for her to leave, she didn’t want to disappoint her employers and coworkers. What do you do when being yourself causes other people pain? Is it ever appropriate […]
There’s a world of difference between fitting in and belonging. Fitting in is trying to squeeze into a pair of skinny jeans. There’s nothing wrong with skinny jeans. But sometimes you just want to relax and let it all hang out. Fitting in forces you to change your shape. It can cut off the circulation […]
The basis for authenticity is to think your own thoughts, know what you value and boldly live it no matter how strong the pressure to conform. When something is true for you, you HAVE to live it, even if the path is hard, your voice shakes, and few people understand you. The alternative is to […]

A Plastic Smile.

December 17th, 2012
I was in the dollar store. Buying brightly coloured plastic landfill, and crying. Did everyone else feel like me? I looked around – it was hard to tell as they filled their shopping carts with crap. I held fart putty in one hand while tears streamed down my cheeks. Nothing was funny. My kids do […]

Shattered.

November 27th, 2012
Bit different? Speak with a lisp, or like to read? Long nose, big lips, small ears, weird name, wrong shoes, no dad, no fun, too serious, too dumb, too tall, too short too, too, too- just too something. There is always Something. too loud, too popular, too shy too, too healthy. Can you sing? Shut […]
Speak your truth, even if your voice shakes, your knees buckle, and the earth trembles beneath you. You will be okay. In fact you will be better than okay. Stand by your principles, and the truth will set you free. How? You will like yourself much more this way, and your confidence will show. You […]
Marianne Williamson has lost her marbles. Or at least that’s what I thought when I read her famous “Powerful Beyond Measure” quote for the first time (in 2001.) “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” I cocked my head like a confused dog.

SEED OF AUTHENTICITY

June 20th, 2012
The essence of who you are doesn’t age. It’s like a new born every moment, pure potential, unconditional acceptance. Rediscover your born identity, your original nature, before the thief called fear and the thug named judgment filled you with doubt. Listen for the heart beat of authenticity and move to its rhythm.
