Change your story, change your life

This morning I talked to my old therapist on the phone about a jarring email I received from a distressed follower yesterday.

It’s a rainy morning in Indiana. Billy and I went on a walk early and just let the rain fall on us as if it was a magical substance that would give us energy! Rain infused hair + wet puppy = happy morning. This is the sixth post in the Cleaning Out Your Stuff series. […]

What We Measure Matters: Clarity of What is Important to You is an Excellent Roadmap for Making Decisions

It is a rainy winter day in Indiana. My dog and I went on a walk early this morning and got muddy and dirty like little kids. Now I am happy to be sipping warm coffee and reading emails from my clients who are making amazing progress in their lives. How lucky am I? This […]
