I have had several people recently tell me in their own unique ways that they felt something like a bouncing ball in life. Trying to juggle work, school, health and family responsibilities can be overwhelming, leaving someone to feel out of balance, disconnected and unfocused. Many of us can get caught up in busy and active lives. We start treading water and just surviving rather than making purposeful choices and actions with ourselves and others. This can be slippery slope in any relationship. I think it’s important to take a quick assessment every few months – check in on your priorities and values and what’s important to you right now. Have you...

I love shopping! I don’t care what it is, I’ll offer to help my friends shop. Need a car? Oh, let me go online and research for you! Need to find the perfect dress? Please, let me go with you! Yes, I love to shop! Shopping for a coach? Well, maybe not so much.  But, I look at this this way…. When it comes to choosing a life coach, finding the right one for you is like finding the right running shoes.

Sometimes people finally cultivate the courage to...

  What is your reaction when an injustice occurs? Do you react, submit or strategize an effective action? *** Unwashed for weeks, the woman is physically strong and lustful. She steps into the shower at Green Hotel in Peshawar with her Afghani warrior. Layers of red dirt stream down their bodies. Mouthfuls of water splash into their kisses. The force and pulsation of unbounded energy melds them into ONE. A knock at the door, the hotel manager enraged throws the Moujahadeen out of the hotel. “Not allowed,” he yells. Stunned the journalist argues but to no avail. She packs her things and leaves with her handsome lover. A day passes and she discovers that her...

The self-fulfilling prophecy

Often what we tell ourselves about the events of our lives and the meaning we give our different life phases can affect not only the way we see ourselves, but also affect our future. I know many people who believe their best years were when they were growing up, or when they were in their twenties. Others still believe that they reach their prime and have their best years in their thirties, and then after that it’s all downhill. Still others think that they only reach their peak when they hit forty, and it is common now to hear the phrase that the fifties are the new forties – who knows what after that! This belief always fascinated me, because I remember as...
