Recent Life Lessons from my Bucket List

As some of you know, I recently came face to face–somewhat unwillingly–with one of my Bucket List/Life Dream/Why Not? items.

Let me give you the backstory. Several months ago, Studio 5 challenged we core contributors to do a “Never Ever”–something we’ve never done before but wanted to. I’d always wanted to sing with a jazzy, bluesy, Harry Connick Jr.-y Big Band. It was even written on my Life Board. And since it was many months ...

How do you deal with discouragement?

I’ve been thinking this week about hope, and discouragement, and what makes both a part of our lives.

Because I’m speaking at a women’s retreat this week about this, it’s been sitting on my soul. The director of the event sent me questionnaire responses from the attending women. The information floored me. Their trials ranged from everyday exhaustion to deep, deep difficulties, the kind that don’t resolve with bucking up.

As I searc ...

Face and embrace your fear

Last week I had two opportunities to face and embrace my fears.    First, I was invited to be the self-help guest on Studio 5’s LIVE baby shower show–I’d never done a live one before! AND do the keynote for the Success Summit women’s conference. Seriously, I felt so nervous about both–as in, wake up in the middle of the night nervous.   The live show meant being fast, to the point, but giving a take-away in four minutes, and flexible on the exact how.   The keyn ...

Want a FREE eBook & Ticket to Success Summit?

Several months ago, I was invited to contribute a chapter to a potential 25-author book titled, Success Through Failing. After learning about the stories of the other authors, and their surviving and thriving through life fails–from everyday life fails to surviving childhood prostitution to rehab from drug abuse as a mother of several children–I was overwhelmed by the life lessons and wisdom offered by these amazing women. The book became a reality. And just last week, ...

Start Big By…Doing Nothing!

Christmas was fabulous, let’s just be clear about that. And then, that night, I slept 10 hours. Each year I underestimate what the month of December takes out of me. But what did I do? I got up and started cleaning, clearing, and organizing with vigor, wanting to get the post-holiday bombshell house back to a sliver of normal as soon as possible.

What I didn’t realize was this: I wasn’t ready. My body and soul were saying, IT’S VACATION, and my mojo was already there. I had sev ...
