Life Coaching: How to Stay Sane When the World Appears Insane

I just went through airport security on my way to Seattle to visit my brother's family for Thanksgiving. If there ever was a physical manifestation of collective paranoia, psychosis, delusion and insanity this is it. One guy put something in…

Wrestling with Election as a Swing Voter

I've always been a Democrat, but this year I've found myself wrestling with the issue. I don't want to give Obama a free pass. And I don't think Mitt Romney is Satan. Neither man is the anti-Christ. I wrote a series of posts over at The Broad…

Law of Attraction & Relationships: Love Stretches Across the Whole Wide Universe

Sometimes I remember someone from way back, or think of someone across the entire planet from me, and I marvel at the feeling I get. I feel love from and for this person stretching thousands of miles. Maybe my grandma, an old lover. Perhaps…

I had one of the best palm readers in the country, Myrna Lou, come to my The Future is Bright; Let There Be Light party this last weekend. I wanted to mark the milestone of this bright shiny new chapter in my life: post-divorce and 39. Myrna…

Change My Life: Uh. Uh. Uh. Here's a Boundary. Watch Your Step!

Lately I feel like I'm having a lot of opportunities to set boundaries, to change my life. Perhaps it's because I've nearing 40 and have realized that without clearly enforced boundaries, everyone on the planet will try to suck me dry. Perhaps…

Law of Attraction & Relationships: Co-Parent & Wasband

I call my ex-husband my co-parent and my wasband. Co-parent is the term I prefer over single mom or baby daddy. I'm a co-parent. He is my co-parent. I don't like ex-husband. It has a negative connotation to it. It implies that we are in conflict…

Life Coach: Forget Fair! Try Happy!

I remember when my dad would say, Who ever told you life was going to be fair? and it would piss. me. off. It's not fair!  Fair. Life should be fair. Right? My children now say/whine/scream, It's not fair!  And I tell them, when…

Change My Life: Go Slow

First a whisper, a comment from someone, an article that catches your eye. Next a pebble, pay attention. Along comes a stone, it smarts. A brick or two, that shakes you a little. Make a vow, ignore it, justify. When the whole damn wall comes…

Law of Attraction & Relationships: 50 Shades of Being Treated Like Shit is Hot (Grey)

So I bought Fifty Shades of Grey, the chick porn series that is flying off the shelves. Professional, strong women are getting all hot and bothered by hideously lazy and trite writing and messages even worse than Twilight. I read a…
