How to Push Reset on a Bad Day

2020-10-16T12:22:17-07:00October 15th, 2020|

Whether the day is a good day, the month a good month, or the year a good year, is all a matter of choosing the right perspective. The sun hovers over the ocean in front of me, casting beams of light down through the clouds as it makes its ascent and a brand new day begins. The view is mesmerizing, the breeze warm and soft on my face, and the  Read more »

What Do You Need to Let Go?

2020-10-14T11:08:24-07:00October 8th, 2020|

Fall is here in the Northwest and with it crisp temperatures with a bit of morning mist giving way to warm sunny days. Though I love the change of seasons I must admit I am mourning the end of summer just a bit. Out on the golf course yesterday the deep green of the fir trees against the bright changing colors of red and gold on the stately maples created  Read more »

It’s Ok to Not Be Ok

2020-10-08T16:09:00-07:00October 1st, 2020|

Sitting in the doctor's office waiting for the results of a test, I checked the time again - the third time in about 10 minutes. As an executive with a heavy schedule I thought to myself, I don't have time for this. Some changes on my skin and the concern of a friend had brought me in. When I think back, this was a very difficult time in my life.  Read more »

When Your Future is Unclear

2020-09-23T14:45:21-07:00September 17th, 2020|

My morning started off in the usual way. After a good night of sleep, I feel energized and ready to start my day. But then I open the blinds. Instead of the welcoming morning light streaming through the windows there is a dense fog surrounding the house. I can't see more than a few feet ahead. I thought to myself, this is strange, it seems a little early in the  Read more »

You Can Adjust the Sails

2020-09-15T11:55:45-07:00September 10th, 2020|

It is a beautiful summer in the Pacific Northwest, and my family and I have had the opportunity to spend some glorious days boating in the San Juan Islands. With the Labor Day holiday and end of summer quickly approaching, we escaped with my parents to Orcas Island to catch the last hurrah. The sky was blue, the sun was warm, and there was just enough of a breeze to  Read more »

How to Purposefully Live Your Best Life

2020-09-15T11:42:33-07:00September 3rd, 2020|

When I was a young girl we used to sing a song called "Count Your Blessings." It is a simple song with a simple but profound idea: name the great things and people in your life one by one. That song was probably my first brush with the idea of living a gratitude-filled life. I have many blessings - more than I am able to count. But every morning, I  Read more »

5 Reasons You Need to Play More

2020-08-20T11:18:43-07:00August 20th, 2020|

When I was a little girl, my Grandpa built a playhouse for my sister and me in our backyard. It was a miniature of the farmhouse where we lived, painted white with green trim, and even had a small loft. We loved to play in our "very own" house, and spent hours of make believe there. Our kittens became our babies and would allow us (most of the time) to  Read more »

Want to Be Happier? Stop Living on Automatic

2020-08-07T08:41:49-07:00August 7th, 2020|

In order to become a better and happier version of yourself, you first have to identify the areas of your life that you are not satisfied with - where you have succumbed to "living on automatic." Let me illustrate with a story. My husband and I enjoy kayaking together on the ocean near our home in the Pacific Northwest. There is nothing more beautiful than being out on the water  Read more »

3 Powerful Steps to Dream Big

2020-07-24T12:49:22-07:00July 24th, 2020|

As a child I had boundless energy and a big imagination. Dreaming came easy. Growing up on a dairy farm out in the country, my sister and I spent a lot of time playing outdoors. She and I spent hours playing in the tree-house my Dad built us in our front yard. We pretended we lived there, that is, until Mom called us in for dinner. Rainy days did't get  Read more »

Don’t Let Stress Hurt Your Marriage

2020-07-16T12:30:03-07:00July 16th, 2020|

I am sorry for what I said in quarantine. Over something ridiculously small I had snapped at my husband and needed to apologize. Can you relate? My day had started out just fine. Despite the extra efforts needed to rise above the latest negative news, I was ready to tackle the workday. Armed with my morning latte and my list of priorities I got to work. However, it quickly became  Read more »
