STOP WORKPLACE GOSSIP, please ;)

According to research, as explained in Psychology Today, conducted by a team from the University of Amsterdam, 90 percent of office conversations are actually gossips. Researchers at Georgia Institute…

Are you caught being dragged into places you don't want to go to?You have a lot of obligations with family, work, friends, boyfriend/partner/spouse that you HAVE to go to, and I get that.Within all of these things that you are obligated and most likely guilt-tripped to do, you are also not scheduling activities that align with your…

What are you not allowing IN?

If you are holding tightly to something, within the illusion of control, what are you NOT allowing IN? When I heard myself say this out loud with my business coach the other day, I thought to myself, damn. That's been me! As much as I pride myself on thinking I'm an over evolved human and more…

Boundaries are a Thing.

The dreaded word for some of us is "boundaries."  I'm not sure why we dread it or why it makes us uncomfortable, but for some reason or reasons, it does. I used to be someone who struggled with this a lot. I learned a dynamic of codependency as the norm, and I began to see…

Nourish Your Mind, Body and Soul

It's a term I heard a lot and had no idea what that looked like for me. I also know now that I wasn't putting it into practice. I feel like when it comes to "performance," there is a certain level of care you need to put your attention to because the only instrument you have…

Change Matters; Here’s Why

One hard lesson I learned through my coaching career so far is this; you can't change anyone who doesn't want to or is not ready to change. Plain and simple. I work with people who are on the cusp of change because that thing that they want is so precious to them. It goes back…

What if I don’t want to “Grow Up”?
