Take a Journey With Me...

  It’s coming up on Mother’s Day and for so many people, it’s a time to celebrate being WITH.  Being with family, especially with mothers or daughters is a big part of this holiday.  Flowers and gifts are exchanged and the deep nurturing and heart connection between a mother and her children is celebrated.  True, healthy mothering is held up as the ultimate way that someone can be with another human being. And for others, it is a time that the feeling of being WITHOUT cuts especially deep.  For daughters and sons who did not experience that healthy mothering, this day holds up a cruel mirror that reflects being different, other, less than.  Who is so imperfect that their mother cannot love them, so unworthy that they are left behind, so broken that they are not fixed with a mother’s kiss?  Who is so empty that she View Full Post

I have heard other writers talk about their books as their babies and I thought I understood what they meant.  A book is something that is carried deep inside, waiting to make its appearance in the world.  It is made by you, connected to you and yet, somehow more than you.  It has a life of its own.   Yes…I thought I understood.  And then, along came I Am Her Daughter and I get it at a whole different level.

The Garden of Your Life is on full-speed Growth right Now! SPRING HAS SPRUNG!  April is the month of accelerated growth...What are you growing? ~ My addiction to perfection prevented me from allowing my soul to fly. There, I said it. (deep breath)... Revealing myself has been a frequent pastime in my writing, in my stories to the women around the fire at my retreats, in my experiences offered as wisdom to my mentees. My readers know that I am famous for sharing my deepest secrets about my life. I didn't realize that I was holding this startling realization to myself until this weekend, when my inner guidance declared that my addiction to perfection had been holding me back.   Dang.   In my work, I support women in coming into their leadership through their strengths...and through their weaknesses...because it is by embracing ALL of ourselves that we have the View Full Post
