Intentional Choices


In these trying times, it is not unusual to feel a mix of emotions. Despite some people and places seemingly returning to some version of normal, the unknowns still loom. Given the quantity of decisions we are having to make with such uncertain outcomes, stress levels may be high. Procrastination and distraction habitual. For [...]

Mistakes Happen


Accepting ourselves and others when mistakes happen, is challenging. Holding on to feelings or frustrations only causes us to relive and repeat the pain. Mistakes are incidents or situations that have already happened. Since we are unable to alter the past, there is little that holding on will resolve. Instead, making peace or apologizing [...]

Choosing Wisely


“Don't be distracted by emotions like anger, envy, resentment. These just zap energy and waste time." — Ruth Bader Ginsburg Be grateful for who you are, rather than who others want you to be. Find meaning in knowing and being your authentic self. Stand up for what you believe and make choices that align with [...]

Stretch Beyond


Flexing our discomfort muscle allows us to grow. In doing so, we stretch beyond what is usual in order to experience more. More satisfaction, more connection, more learning and ultimately more of who we truly are. In exploring beyond comfort, we can begin to identify, then step into our most authentic selves. We may [...]

Radical Acceptance


In letting go of the past and growing into the self we want to be, we shift into radical acceptance of who we are. This requires acknowledging reality even when we disagree. Fighting against what was or is, only creates suffering. While pain may be inevitable in our lives, suffering is optional. By accepting [...]

Communicate Openly


Sometimes the hardest thing to do is be open and honest about our opinions and fears. We tread lightly to avoid hurting others or encountering uncomfortable confrontations. In doing so, we hold back our true feelings or allow others to design our reality. Communicating openly during such tumultuous and changing times is a must. [...]

What Do You Need?


Each Friday with my Foundfully Fridays, I share something I am feeling or try to provide insights or inspiration based on my experiences and conversations with friends and clients. Today, I ask you: what do you need and how can I help? I invite you to also ask someone else. We need each other. [...]

Do What Works


With the ongoing uncertainty of how long the current situation will last, we must stay flexible about the choices and decisions we make. Empower ourselves  by having a strategy. Even a simple breathing ritual can allow space for reflection and calm. Perhaps it means stepping away and making no decisions for a bit. It is [...]

Finding Comfort


“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” - Martin Luther King Jr. The times we are experiencing require bravery. We may be shaken to our core but can always choose to find comfort. [...]

Mindful Choices


As many of us grieve the loss of our former lives, mindful choices may be extremely helpful. Finding ways to be more present and intentional helps shift us out of negative behaviors or patterns. By focusing on the here and now, we are able to appreciate and enjoy small repeated tasks, such as hand [...]
