I’m changing my word. Can you do that, mid-year? I don’t know the protocol for the whole word-of-the-year business. But I’ve decided I’m changing mine. Or at least, changing the definition slightly. And since my word was originally “open” - meaning, I want to be open to new ideas, new challenges, new perspectives, I think the shift is actually quite apropos.Read More
On this eve of “the next four years,” I’m trying to figure out how to move forward. I think a lot of us are. Every day I read something that reminds me we have SO many steps to make to cover the ground that seems to be slipping from under us with each day that passes.
Sometimes I get overwhelmed. And sometimes, that overwhelm paralyzes me. Because the steps we need to take are so important. But now is not the time for paralysis. It can't be.
So I decided I'm going to have to start where I am, even if that means starting small.
I'm excited to share a new project I've been working on with you.Read More

And not just running. I have a list. If I showed you my diary entries from December 31st for the last dozen or so years, you'd see the same dozen or so items on this list. I'm sure I'm not the only one who writes a "how I'm going to be a better human" list once a year. (tell me I'm not!?)Read More
I wonder if I should send him to bed hungry so he knows what an empty stomach feels like. I wonder if I should return the brown paper packages tied up with string (and blue Amazon Prime tape) piling high on my dining room table. Would an empty stocking on Christmas morning teach him the lesson I am so desperate for him to learn in this moment?Read More
In gratitude for everything I've learned from my own grieving process, and because the holiday season can be hard enough when grief is a constant companion, I've decided to offer my e-course for free. If you or someone you know has suffered from a miscarriage, please share the link to my course (www.aninvitationtogrieve.com) so that they might find some solace in knowing they are not alone.Read More
