Walking Away from Someone You Really Care About

Are you listening to the signs?

Are you listening to your gut?

Or are you ignoring your intuition, hoping it’s wrong, and that your desire and longing for love conquers all?

Let me share with you my story about having the courage to walk away from someone I really cared about.

I met this guy on a flight back to Nashville. This was at a time in my life when I had totally surrendered to God, and was in the zone. I was feeling good, open, available and receptive to my Higher Power’s will in every area of my life – but looking for nothing specifically.

So I’m sitting in my seat on the airplane, minding my own business, when this really good looking guy plopped down in the seat right next to me. The next thing I knew, we were holding hands and looking deeply into each other’s eyes like long lost soul mates.

It was a magical two-hour flight. Continue reading “Walking Away from Someone You Really Care About”

How to like yourself when someone clearly doesn’t like you!

When someone just doesn’t like you – even though you’ve been kind to them – it’s a tough pill to swallow.

When someone creates a story about you – misjudges your intentions, talks about you behind your back or blackballs you from your own friends and family – it’s a really hard pill to swallow.

Your reactions are all over the map: You want to lash out; You want to convince them to see you for who you really are; You want to understand what you did that offended them on such a visceral level that this is their response. Maybe you’ve even asked them, “What in the heck did I do to you?”

And yet they refuse to discuss it with you. Continue reading “How to like yourself when someone clearly doesn’t like you!”

My First Step To Healing Everything

I am so honored to have my article featured in the nationally acclaimed Science of Mind Magazine in the January, as well as March, 2017 editions.

Here’s the backstory on the article:

The power of admitting powerlessness…

There are so many people who think that the word “powerlessness” only applies to those who are recovering from drug addiction, and this perception often blocks those suffering from other life diminishing stressors from having a true experience of surrender and relief.

Resentment – The #1 Killer

I thought for years that if I didn’t have the mother I had, I wouldn’t have been so screwed up. If I had boyfriends that were true and honest, I’d have felt loved. If I hadn’t gotten pregnant at sixteen, I’d get to do what I wanted to do, when I wanted to do it. These mental chains held me in a self-imposed prison until I decided to set myself free through forgiveness and taking responsibility for the part I played in my own life.

An Unexpected Gift

I was recently made an offer that blew my socks off. I thought, “this is just the boost my career needs, all of my problems will be solved, my life is going to be so much better,” and then – wham – the offer changed, and the rug was seemingly pulled out from under me.

I was on the floor with disappointment – I couldn’t understand why this opportunity had been dangled in front of me, just to be snatched away. In my distress I felt that I would’ve been better off if the offer had never been made. I was doing just fine, so I thought, without it. Continue reading “An Unexpected Gift”

Reclaiming Your Bad-Ass Sexy

“Oh My God, I hate my thighs! Is that a hair growing out of my chin? No, it’s three hairs growing out of my chin, and it’s friggin gray!!! Was that wrinkle on my forehead there yesterday? My tummy is sooo FAT! God, I feel like I’m going crazy! Maybe I should get a face-lift… I might still feel nuts, but at least I’d be beautiful – I’d be enough. Maybe if I lose weight, get liposuction and laser treatments for the hairs growing out of my chin, someone will want me – because then I’ll be perfect.” Continue reading “Reclaiming Your Bad-Ass Sexy”
