Steer, Not Control

Another short post to share intuitive guidance that came through me this morning. This message is for anyone who has been waiting for something for extended periods of time and feels that you have met your end of the bargain and done all the “right things.” Yet, it still eludes you, and you are frustrated […]

Vulnerability and Shame

Last summer, a friend of mine recommended Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brene Brown. The post-it note on which she wrote the title sat on my coffee table for months before I ordered the book. It then took some more time before […]

Serenity, Courage & Wisdom

2014 started with some challenging news. There is a 5% margin that I could prevent the worst outcome from happening. However, the disproportionately higher likelihood that it will come to pass—and the pain it will bring me—has been weighing heavily on my mind and in my heart. When I meditated on the situation over the […]

Can Competitiveness Be Good?

Last week, I played a satisfying competitive tennis match. My partner and I won narrowly in a third-set tiebreak, which was described by a teammate watching us as a nail-biter till the very end.

Misunderstanding Spirituality

Do you consider yourself spiritual? What does being spiritual mean to you, and how does that affect how you live? Unless you’re new here (if you are, welcome!), you know that spirituality is very important to me, and I try to bring a high level of consciousness to how I live. Recently, I got on […]

A Miracle Is Faith In What’s Real

Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. A miracle is a shift in perception from fear to love—from a belief in what is not real, to faith in that which is. Above are two quotes from Marianne Williamson’s latest book, The Law of Divine Compensation. The central thesis of this book is that we […]

What is Vulnerability?

Vulnerability has been in the forefront of my consciousness lately. Last week, I read an incredibly powerful post on this subject by Samantha Hall. The power and wisdom from embracing her struggles with vulnerability is truly palpable in that piece. Aside from reading about vulnerability, I’ve been feeling it in real life. Waves of fears […]

On Being Fearless

“Courage?!” That was the instantaneous response a senior executive gave me recently, when I asked her how she makes difficult decisions—before she launched into a series of logical decision-making steps that consider the marketplace, the competition, strategic priorities, available resources, etc. To me, her first gut response stood head and shoulders above everything else she […]
