Today in one of my integrative nutrition classes Daniel Vitalis lectured on living wild, or rewilding.
(Did I tell you I took the leap and went back to school? I did! Eep!)
Anyway, today, I heard Daniel compare domesticated human beings, that's us, to Chihuahuas. Tamed and timid.
If you think about it, he's right on many levels.
Very few of us still hunt and gather. Instead, we score our food from grocery stores and fast food joints. When is the last time you cooked an entire meal from scratch using fresh, whole ingredients? Or baked a cake from your great grandma's favorite recipe? Or tended a garden of organic veggies in your own back yard?
Lately I've struggled to put butt-in-chair and focus on writing.
I think I've grown afraid to write because I'm terrified of losing my mind.
When I write I want to dive as deeply as I possibly can. No holding back. Screw spouting fluff!
I want to sink into the muck and mire at the center of my soul, that place where all the dark things live, that place where all the deep emotions hide for fear of being exposed to the sun. For the sun may kill them. Not wanting to die they fight not to be seen.
And our own psyche encourages us to use addictions: too much wine, too much food, too much mind-numbing TV, social media, pills, gambling, porn, shopping, lula roe, (**phew, breathe**) in an ......

Good morning dear Gorgeous Goddess,
I am curled up cozy in my PJs, with a warm, fuzzy, snow-leopard blanket, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers Twinkle, Twinkle Little Rockstar playing softly in the background, writing to you on this chilly, Ohio morning. Who knew the RHCP had a lullaby album? My heart is excruciatingly happy in this moment! Squeee!
And I hope your day is starting out just as beautiful.
So, lately I have been feeling out of sorts about a couple of personal and business decisions. I was being indecisive and wishy-washy, which isn’t my usual modus operandi.
I knew something was off. I’m never one to sit and wait for things to just work themselves out. I’m ......

Women are becoming woke.
No, this isn’t going to be a long-winded diatribe on the present political state.
I promise! NO POLITICS HERE!
So, grab a cup of your favorite warm libation, relax a bit, and lean in for just a few moments.
This past Sunday I was blessed to witness 25 women come together for an event that was designed to remind them of their capacity for power, pleasure, and play.
As I livestreamed my dear friend, Toni, of Roots To Rhythm, leading these beautiful souls in a drumming circle, I watched women begin to play with a bit of uncertainty. Many of them excited for a new adventure, something far removed from their daily lives. Many feeling unsure ......
When The Pipefitter and I were first married, a lot of years ago, he wasn’t a pipefitter and I didn’t own my own coaching and facilitating business. He delivered pizza for Domino’s for tips and pumped gas for minimum wage ($3.35 an hour). I was a very young stay-at-home mom, because we felt it was important for one parent to be home with the baby until she started school, and I was still too young to start college so it was easy to dedicate myself to full-time motherhood. I did teach dance classes one night a week in exchange for free classes for myself and our young daughter, but that didn’t increase our bottom .........
So, I had an interesting conversation with a group of ladies this past week regarding the term goddess and how women feel about it. The results were interesting. Watch the short video above then chime in with your thoughts and feelings about it in the comment section below. As always, I love to hear from you!

I'm usually so relaxed about dealing with any problem. Problem solving is a huge part of what I do as a life and business coach. I pride myself on my ability to resolve major issues, mine and other peoples, with ease and grace.
But recently my trust was challenged to a degree that caused me to be extremely angry and resentful. I’m human. It happens. I was deeply wounded. My anger was growing by the minute, and to such a deep degree that I couldn’t see a way out of it. There didn’t appear to be a solution to the problem, and I was struggling to deal with the dark emotions that were bubbling to the surface.
I had been lied to about something huge. This event rattled my cage because my faith in this other person had ......
