Top Dating Mistakes that Lead to Divorce

"If it’s a red flag while you are dating, it turns into a billboard sign after you get married."

These wise words are from one of my clients who just got divorced.

My work puts me into the unique position of 20/20 hindsight on dating mistakes that may lead you right […]

Enjoying the Enjoyable sans the Guilt

Over the last couple of weeks I've noticed a pattern with my clients; they aren't enjoying the moments and events that they do to supposedly find enjoyment.

Admittedly, I've been known to do the same thing. One of my clients pours herself a glass of wine and then berates herself for […]

Your Butt Looks Great in Jeans – Taming Jealousy

"Your butt looks great in those jeans, I'm so jealous."

This is something my friend Stacy will often say to me. Naturally, I'm flattered and not just because of the compliment. I admire her because she is willing to admit that she's jealous. She doesn't hold back at all.

Zero Pounds Lost; Best Year Ever

It was the best year of my 50-year-old life.   Most of the other years were really nice but this one was a standout.   I didn’t lose a pound, didn’t drop a clothes size, didn’t win the lottery, didn’t find a cure for cancer, didn’t win the Nobel Peace prize, didn’t change […]

The 50-Year-Old Gratitude List

My gratitude list is long but there are a few things that especially caught my attention this year.

November appears to have become “Gratitude Month” and that’s a nice thing.
I’ll gladly jump on this bandwagon though I try to be grateful all year round. This year gave me a lot of opportunities to think about all that I am thankful for. I turned 50 this year and was […]

Bullies? I wonder where they got that.

It seems that almost every day we read a terrible story of a child suffering chronic abuse at the hands of bullies.   These aptly named people seem to be relentless in their ability to attack, demean, and belittle their intended victim.  In trying to understand why people bully I see hand […]

Women’s Voices; I Can’t Hear You!

Last year I opened the virtual doors to my own business.  It was a dream come true brought about by hard work and lots of advice from some really brilliant people.  One piece of advice I received from a number of sources was to get active on social media but to […]
