I am a self-proclaimed do-er.

An overachiever. A person, like many others, who have benefitted from the achievement model. I have always been “rewarded” for being ambitious; therefore, being ambitious is how I have always been.

In fact, people often say to me, “How do you do it all?” The answer is I don’t know how not to. Like so many women and mothers in this time and space, I have been doing all. The. things. All. the. Time. For everyone else. Not realizing...

Dear Jen,

You’re on the bus ride to the airport and starting your journey home. Journey—that’s what this is. That’s what all of this is. NH is so beautiful (you just looked out the window. 444 on the car next to you. Angels. The Divine. They’re there. They’re always there we just have to pay attention and invite them in).

And just like that you lost it—writing started to get me to think about doing and with my cell phone so accessible and the Internet even mo...

The days are long but the years are short--before I had kids this is what I always heard parents say.   And from experience I can now say no truer words were ever spoken about parenthood. The days ARE long and some days are certainly harder than others.  But amid all of t...

Dear Mom Guilt,

I am feeling feisty today--so watch out.  Emily Ley told me in her book Grace Not Perfection that you are a liar, and today I decided to believe her.  And so, like any true break up, I know this will be a process--but it is time for me to say a much overdue goodbye.

No longer will I endure your abuse.  No longer will I tolerate your gaslighting and manipulations.  No longer will I let you activate old stories and patterns.

Get out of...

“You’re forgetting that you are living a dream. Even though you’re years in now and it’s become your norm, the business or role you have now, was once a dream that you wish you could achieve.This dream that you had always wished for made you believe in yourself and what you really can achieve, again.It got you moving; it catapulted you out of your comfort zone.It awak...

Dear 2018 Jen,

This is a really cool little ritual that you created last year.  A reflective gratitude letter to yourself. Last year it sort of came to you as a way to process beating yourself up over spilled milk.  But isn’t that how the best ideas come to us? By accident.

So current status is babies are asleep (for the time being) and so isn’t Mike--after your 16 hour drive from MA where he did all the driving, he definitely needs the rest.  So don’t w...

As I am sitting here working on an overdue blog post and trying to set the agenda for my Sacred Bliss Women’s Circle event I have been interrupted 5 times in the last 40 minutes, and it got me thinking about an important topic that I know I’m not alone in---how to get in your creative flow amid distractions, specifically the mom life.

I used to trivialize my interests and not create space for my passion.  I would let the mom guilt...

It is the Autumn Equinox and although here in Charleston weather-wise, it still very much feels like summer, this signifies a change in seasons.

This year I am feeling this season change really intensely.  My daughter turns 4 years old tomorrow. 4 years. I am letting that sink in for a moment.  I have been a parent for 4 years. I have grown alongside her. I still remember what it was like to be 4 years old sometimes.  She’s such a bi...

Transitions are hard.  Today is the first day of school for many and I can feel all the feels of the transition energy all around me.  There’s the excitement and anxiety (which are two sides of the same coin--really the same feeling which is why Mel Robbins helped me with the trick of when you’re feeling anxious just keep repeating ‘I’m excited’ until you truly feel excited--try it--it works); there’s the sadness of the ending of...

A Call To Bliss

I know you have felt it

The Inkling

The Call

I know you have ignored it

I can’t

I don’t know how

I am unworthy

I know that it has whispered

I am not listening

It can’t be real

I know that you want to

Maybe a little

A small part of me

I know there is resistance

Is it fear?

Is it doubt?

I know there is anxiety

What if…?

It is all uncertain

I know there is promise

It won’t stop calling

It could be real

I know there is support

Who are my all...
