The Waiting Game

Have you ever gotten an action photo taken? You know the type...you decide you want a picture of yourself in mid-air? Or mid-run? Or mid...whatever? It’s oddly satisfying when you get it just right.

What is the Right Amount of News?

I’m a health coach, by trade. I live and breathe the stuff.  When I wake up in the morning, I begin by removing my pink eye mask and my earplugs.

I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up! (What HSP and Cheetah’s Have in Common)

I have been having one hell of a time working up even an iota of creativity or a fraction of my usually abundant "can do" energy. The struggle has been real.  What's odd about it is that only a few weeks ago, I was charged up and ready to go. I had momentum. I had a … Continue reading I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up!
