We’re back with Part Two of our interview with Life Coach and Author Kate Swoboda. (If you missed it, Part One can be found here) I know you don’t believe in the possibility of “balance”. We’d love to hear a better way to approach life as opposed to this mythical “balance”? When people are talking [...]
Spring has sprung and I am hell-bent on creating a butterfly garden for my family to enjoy this summer. While researching the appropriate flowers to transform my boring suburban yard to a winged creature sanctuary, I marveled at the simple needs of the butterfly and pondered what I would require if I only had [...]
For the second time in a week, the gas light comes in on my car. It’s Friday and I’m on my way back from a LONG week of teaching. I want to go home and pass out in my bed with my cats, but I am too paranoid to let the warning light go ignored. [...]
But the nightmares go back farther than those tense days in August. They go back to May – a remarkably short period of time, really – to the morning when I passed out on the cold tiles of the bathroom floor in my dormitory building. My period had been acting strangely for a couple of [...]
In light of the All Things Girl “Color” Edition, it is only fitting to speak to Christine Mason Miller, artist, author and ATG Alumnae. We each have our own inner color, a creative energy bursting to get out through our thoughts, actions and talents. I had the opportunity to interview Christine about her book, “Desire [...]
Cast as the hot, not-so-bright jock, Ryan Shay on ABC’s Suburgatory, actor Parker Young sheds some light on how he came to be an entertainer and the importance of taking chances; even if it means stepping out of his comfort zone. Some of our readers may recognize your name, your voice, or your face – [...]
“No one ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he or she is not the same person.” Heraclitus In this present moment, I am living in the glow of witnessing the universal launch of my first book. It is both exhilarating and terrifying—not unlike sending your first child [...]
I find myself speaking less and less these days, partly because I have a 2-month-old infant who wakes every few hours during the night. My 3-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son no longer take naps, throwing the “nap when your baby naps” suggestion right out of the window. My outward voice has temporarily shut off due [...]
There was a time where I could turn almost any positive feedback into something negative. I don’t know if this was my attempt to confirm my belief that people were usually hurtful, but I had a talent (and still sometimes do) for distorting people’s words to avoid accepting praise. If someone found me after [...]
I recently found myself in the uncharted waters of a happy relationship. In the past I had become accustomed to weathering the storm and battening down the hatches in my somewhat turbulent love affairs. This was different. The sun had come out and here I was face to face with a beautiful vista akin to [...]
I still have nightmares about getting my period. Now that your laughter has died down… I am actually serious. Last time I got my period, it was a nightmare. It was two years ago. I had packed my car to go to grad school in Arizona and planned to leave the next day, when I [...]
Jumping into Partnering with My Children I don’t know what I’ll be when I grow up. I’m not sure if I will grow up, at least not if I have to appear “dignified” to any future, grandchildren. Today, the best I can do is to try to dependably clarify the meaning generated by select thinkers, [...]
Spring is firmly upon us; a season’s whose appearance I welcome as I thaw out from the frigid San Diego cold. All right, all right, pipe down Chicago and Belarus, I am kidding about the San Diego cold, but I do so love spring. Tiny, tender shoots of chickweed push their little green plant selves [...]
When I first discovered Kate Swoboda, I was hooked by her brilliant voice of wisdom and truth. We interviewed her back in September as she was launching The Coaching Blueprint for new and emerging coaches and am thrilled to go deeper with Kate in this two part interview. In case folks missed our interview with you [...]
I was all set to make this column a rant about my love/hate relationship with social media and how having access to such tools makes otherwise intelligent adults behave the most annoying people you knew in middle school, but such a rant would really be rather pointless. I mean, we all know that “friend” is [...]
