You Have a Choice to Get Off the Train

“It seems like you were on the train.” I told the woman with tired, worn eyes. “On the train?” She asked in a confused tone. In the moments leading up to what she revealed to me, I found myself linking her experience to a similar experience I had over eight years ago. A romantic relationship, which…

2014: The Year Of…

Just when I thought I was done with my 2014 year-end reflection, another reflection popped in my head and it’s bugging me to give it air. You know you are doing something right in life when the lessons that will help guide you to the next level of your evolution appear to you versus you…

Face Your Fears

Whew. What a year?! I can’t believe it happened and I can’t believe it’s over.

Wisdom Wednesday #5 – How to Achieve Your Childhood Dreams

I have always admired people who were dealt a hard hand in life, but manage to keep smiling and/or over come their struggle.  In the hero’s journey of storytelling the story of the underdog is a story the audience wants to see and never gets tired of seeing.  We want to see the underdog rise…

Wisdom Wednesday #1 – The Power of Vulnerability

Introducing Wisdom Wednesday.  We all have wisdom of our own and things that we have come to understand at this point in our lives.  As we grow what we have come to understand and how we see the world changes, evolves, is longer needed or is sometimes forgotten.  Wisdom Wednesday will be a monthly post…
