Prevent Burnout: Be Like the Moon

Hello, Warriors! I’ve been writing and coaching about burnout prevention and recovery a ton lately. It’s my passion. I feel as if I’ve been planted on this earth to help be a mirror to others’ pain points while championing them to make the powerful choices they desire to rock their own world. Let’s go beyond the world, for a moment. If you were to think of the role you play in our solar system, what comes to mind? Yes, that’s quite the question, so let’s make it multiple choice. You can be the Sun or you can be the Moon. The Sun is fabulous because everyone is happy to see it, it warms the whole planet and never once asks what have you done for me.

Me … Enlightened?

Hello Dear Warriors! I just recently started up a new, ‘bigger and better’ turtle tank for my daughter’s two red-eared sliders.

I was disclosing to a group of clients the other day that I have hardly landed the plane on self-improvement or  self-development. I haven’t yet

The Power of NO

“I am the lightning that changes the world one strike at a time.” After months of introspection on my “life’s purpose,” this was the crystallized statement that I developed years ago and it still resonates with me big time. Those of you who know me well know that I am a high-energy person in every way. Yet, I sometimes get flack for this statement because “lightning kills!” Well, yes it can. But I’d prefer to see it applied to blasting stories and beliefs that do not serve your authenticity, zapping self-criticism, negativity and fear, and destroying the other things that do not leave you feeling energized. It takes courage to eliminate, remove, say “no,” put up boundaries and all of those blocking or zapping actions. Down deep, you want to please, serve, be liked, be appreciated, or even recognized. And that ‘violent’ act can seem selfish or unkind. But let
