This week I completed a new card deck called "My Daily Affirmations" that will be available at the end of the summer. It's a deck that inspires you to work with affirmations every day that support meaningful relationships, prosperity, vibrant health, creating a soulful environment, and much more. To finish the deck, I used a tried-and-true process that works. (It's great for overcoming procrastination). Whether you need to complete your taxes, a college application, or writing a book, here are six steps that will help you to succeed
Recently, during a visit with my friend Nancy, I learned about a show on the Sundance Channel called "Iconoclasts." The show brings artists together to dialogue about their work, the causes that are important to them, and their creative process.
Last week, I spent some time with a dear friend who's going through a tough time as he struggles with multiple life changes that have left him reeling, yet pregnant with possibility. Like so many people these days, the rug has been pulled out from under his life. He's lost his job, his marriage is ending, and for the first time as an adult, he's struggling financially.
Like so many of you, I've watched the earthquake devastation in Haiti this week with a heavy heart. It's tragic to witness so much pain and easy to feel so helpless. While donating money is important, it just doesn't feel like nearly enough.
"Move when the energy moves you." Several years ago my friend Max said this to me when I was complaining about needing to get my butt in the office to clear my desk. I was in no mood to work, yet I felt so emotionally badgered by the piles on my desk that I was desperate to get them handled so I could stop thinking about it and relax.
Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were everything you hoped they would be. I've been enjoying some down time, thinking about my own personal theme for 2010. I was having a hard time choosing one so I finally let go and decided to let the theme of this year find me. And it did, last night, after dinner with friends.
This week marks the end of a decade and the 10th anniversary of the Life Makeover newsletters. It's been quite a journey and I look forward to continuing to share stories, ideas, and inspiration with you in 2010.
I'm sitting here in our living room looking out over the falling snow, feeling grateful for the silence that occurs when we have a storm and everything is forced to stop for a while. It's as though Mother Nature has gently placed a blanket over my part of the world and whispered, "Rest little one. Take a break from the hustle and bustle and let yourself nap for a while." Love that idea...
Well, it's the time of year when I usually share a few holiday self-care reminders to support you in taking good care of yourself over the next few weeks so you enter the New Year feeling good about yourself.
This week I head to New York for my last trip of the year. I'll be teaching a new workshop called "Movers & Shakers: Building a Multimedia Platform that Brings Your Message to the World". The development of this program is a great example of the quote "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity."
