The more we copy or imitate others, the less we are ourselves.

A while ago I was watching snipits of the early auditions for American Idol.  A 17 year old came into the audition room and was asked who her influences were.  She mentioned an artist who was her “idol” and that she was signing a song by that artist.  After starting to sing, she was asked to stop almost immediately.  On her 3rd song choice, which happened to be from church, her real tone and personality came through.  The judges spoke ...

Happy Mother’s Day!

What a wonderful day to celebrate Mothers, nurturers, and yes! Mother Earth! Here are 3 fast ways to celebrate Mothers and the Nurturers among us –

Most people who are in the “pause” mode are managing and becoming rather acclimatized to being in or around our homes.  Human beings are a pretty acclimatizing bunch.  Yet its a strange time we’re in when we go out only for groceries and the like, and THAT feels like a major deal.

Have you noticed that you have ...

What’s in a “pivot”? Re-visioning Your World after COVID-19

Last week, within a space of 2 days, I found myself involved in several conversations where the word “pivot” or “pivoting” was used.  I hadn’t heard that in a while.  New buzz words are here now, from “social distancing” (words that together might have been an oxymoron until COVID-19!), to “new normal”.  Pivoting is not new, and I’ve noticed that it tends to show up in times of change. It appears to have been resurrected as we find ways to ...

Another tool to deal with fear, doubt and worry…

Recently I was giving a Q&A talk and was asked this question: How do you shift from fear, doubt or worry?

My response? The fastest way to shift our state, regardless of what it is, is through GRATITUDE.

Now, that may seem challenging in the situation we find ourselves. Everyone is isolating, and life is certainly not what we’ve known as “normal”.  Yet this is not necessarily gratitude for the situation we find ourselves in, though there ...

3 Ways to Use the COVID-19 Situation to Expand your Life

We are living in unprecedented times, and that requires an unprecedented response. It isn’t “business as usual”, and if we’re honest, we know the “as usual” will never be the same as pre-COVID-19.  This is a seminal moment.

Folks working in some sectors and industries are feeling stressed with too much work.  Others are feeling stressed by insufficient work and bills coming in. And there are unseen elements in all of it, generating more fear, worry and the like.

So, I (like ...

Extra Grace Required

One of the principles I sometimes share is “Extra Grace Required”. At this point it looks like we may be self-isolating for longer than first expected. That means more time with family, which can be phenomenal (1 way or the other). I recently heard a family law lawyer interviewed and she mentioned there is often a rise in number of couples separating after the Christmas holidays and expects it to be similar here. That’s where “extra grace required” can ...

Ready, Set, GO!

In this collective moment when the world seems chaotic and many things are on pause, we have a unique opportunity. Pauses like this are rare, and we can move into greater fear or take the opportunity to discover what is most important to us. The fear vibe is currently palpable. We’ve been encouraged to hunker down and listen to the news, leaving many feeling stressed and anxious. People horde toilet paper and find other ways to cope. Yet in the ...
