What Will You Struggle For?

A provocative blog post has been circulating lately. It’s called “The Most Important Question of Your Life.” See what I mean? You have to click on it. The headline bait yields a sweet reward. Here’s the crux of it: If I ask you, “What do you want out of life?” and you say something like, “I want to be happy and have a great family and a job I like,” it’s so ubiquitous that it doesn’t even mean anything. A more interesting question, a question that perhaps you’ve never considered before, is what pain do you want in your life?

Bidding Farewell to ‘Shoulds’

In a recent post I suggested a question to ponder to start the new year: What have you been meaning to do for a long time that you haven’t done? I went on to explain that it was meant in a light way to provoke small shifts in your world, i.e. new knobs for a cabinet or getting a print framed. At the end of the post, I even answered the question for myself – what I want to do is read Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina. I wondered what it might inspire or if it would just seem like a satisfying item

Thank You So, So Much

If you told me 20 years ago I would be listing all that I’m thankful for as my head hits the pillow every night, I’d have looked at you like you were crazy. Sure, I was grateful for some things in my life, but honestly I attributed most of them to my own hard work and boundless energy. I rarely stopped and counted my blessings. Now it’s like I can’t stop. All day long sometimes. The bird that lands on the bench where I’m writing. Grateful. The sunny day that makes me put my arms out in disbelief like I’m

Preparing for a New Year

With 2014 coming to a close, we can’t help but think about the great adventures we’ve been on, the people we’ve met, the Airstreamers who have joined our community and the excitement ahead.

Taking Stock of 2014

A year is winding down and here’s the big question – Did you live riveted to what resonates most with your heart and soul? I have done year-end reviews for myself ever since I can remember. I enjoy looking at the 12 months that just passed and thinking “huh, I could have done more of that” or “wow, I really did better in that area.” Sometimes there are years we don’t want to end or ones we can’t wait to see hit the pavement. In life coaching training many years ago we learned how to look at the various areas
