A funny thing happened after I published my book

Maybe funny isn’t the right word. More like familiar. After completing my latest book and online course, which took several months of dedicated work, I found myself in that familiar yet uncomfortable place. The space between. One of my followers emailed, asking, “What are you going to do next?” I found myself asking the same question. Inspired ideas for my next book and more online courses swirled in my mind.… Read More »A funny thing happened after I published my book

Why is change so hard?

Change is hard because it very often requires us to let go of who we are, in order to become who we want to be. Our fear of the unknown, and our affinity for what’s comfortable and predictable, makes change feel scary. However, when you start living inspired, and you set an intention for the life you truly want to live, you must be ready to embrace change. After all,… Read More »Why is change so hard?

Definition of Inspiration [Video]

In this sneak peek video from my online course, Master the Art of Letting Go and Following Inspiration, I share what I mean by “Inspiration.” First off, let me just say that I’m not talking about religion. What I am talking about, and you may choose to use a different label, is paying attention to, and following, that little voice that’s urging you to do something. You know that little… Read More »Definition of Inspiration [Video]

Master the Art of Letting Go [Video]

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and that’s because it’s been quite the undertaking moving my entire life across the country. A year ago my husband, two golden retrievers, and I left California to relocate to the mountains of Western North Carolina. We’ve been busy this past year getting settled into our new home and starting our lives here. I’m finally back to work and I am excited to announce… Read More »Master the Art of Letting Go [Video]

Ignoring is Not the Same as Letting Go

Distracting yourself is not the same as letting go. Trying not to think about something is not the same as letting it go. Pretending something doesn’t matter is not the same as letting it go. There’s a difference between Not Focusing on something and Letting it Go. If you truly want to be free of something… If you really want to be able to move on… You must relinquish control,… Read More »Ignoring is Not the Same as Letting Go

Following Inspiration for 3 Months, 6 States, and 2600 Miles

On June 22nd, my husband, our two golden retrievers, and I left the only place we’ve ever called home and drove cross-country to a new life. We did not have a home. What we had was a dream; an inspired idea to relocate from Southern California to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Three months later we couldn’t feel more at home. Despite leaving everything and everyone we knew, just… Read More »Following Inspiration for 3 Months, 6 States, and 2600 Miles

Unshakable

The closer we get to our inspired cross-country move, the more opportunities arise to be convinced we’re making a huge mistake. Yet despite it all, I’m happy to say I’m not falling victim to any of them. There was a time I would have allowed this to create doubt. But not now. Despite any reaction I receive from friends, colleagues, acquaintances, and even strangers, to our news of moving from… Read More »Unshakable
