I’m proud to share that I got a piece published in Thrive Global! Arianna Huffington’s new venture. I talk about a pretty dark period in my life, but it ends well. ♥ … “It was a sunny fall afternoon in 1996. On this particular day I was sitting on my bed reading a self-help [...]

A Through Line

Time passed. The worlds continued to shift. COVID visits and I remember. Books, being outside, and connecting to people I [...]

Want to make your New Year’s Resolution last more than a week?

Welcome to the season of goal setting and self-flagellation! I stopped setting New Year goals years ago, because I always started off the year feeling like a failure.  I am not alone. Research has shown that less than 25% of people are still keeping their goals by the end of January.  Worse, only 8% of [...]
