An authentic life is a

soul-satisfying life.

Living more authentically is glorious. It’s mind-boggling, fun, and freeing. While daunting at times, it’s always amazing. Soul-satisfying beyond words.

My journey to greater authenticity began years ago during a time when my life looked wonderful, but persistently felt out of sync. I couldn’t find a sense of ease or balance. I felt perpetually overwhelmed and exhausted. And so it all began…

Before long my life evolved into a better reflection of me. I’m sharing ideas and inspirations from my journey here… and I hope you’ll join me.
Trust the Process

Trust the Process

If you stop and think about it, everything in life is actually a process. Most of our desires require taking multiple steps and dealing with unknowns before developing into a final outcome. Seeking a new career, building a small business, planning a vacation, any worthwhile goal — they all follow a similar pattern. We must…

Soul Satisfaction

Soul Satisfaction

Here’s a life changing concept:  soul satisfaction. For me, soul satisfaction is the ultimate. It’s the truth, the measuring stick, and the best choice in every situation. Soul satisfaction is the result of being, doing, or having whatever is smack-dab on target for you. It, whatever it is, is so aligned with who you are,…

Simple Pleasures

Simple pleasures are powerful. They are powerful because they are indicators of our authentic selves. They make our heart sing and energize our mind and body. Simple pleasures are so beneficial and desirable it’s a great idea to identify, nurture, and incorporate them into our lives. The cool thing about simple pleasures is they are…

Never Work Again

Never Work Again

I know, I know. You’re young or young-ish, you need an income, you have obligations. There’s no trust fund in sight, retirement is a distant milestone, and buying lottery tickets seems futile. Do you often think to yourself . . . what would it be like to never work again? What if, somehow, I could…

The Power of Giving Yourself Permission

The Power of Giving Yourself Permission

If there is one thing I’m frequently discussing with clients, it’s the importance and power of giving themselves permission. It may sound odd that adults from all walks of life, with rich and varied backgrounds, need permission for anything, but in fact they do. We all do. It’s often one of the biggest keys to our…

The Freedom & Joy of ‘Enough’

The Freedom & Joy of ‘Enough’

Enough is a tricky concept. Discussions about ‘enough’ often surface in coaching discussions with clients. Whether we’re aware of it or not, the idea of enough shows up insidiously in our lives in three common ways: Am I enough? This is the predominant way most of us struggle with the concept of enough. While your inner critic {or…

10 Ideas to Write Your Way to Clarity

Anyone can write. You can write. I’m not talking about published content, but rather private, personal writing. This kind of writing brings much needed clarity; it opens you up to yourself in amazing ways. If you’re not a journaler, maybe it’s because you think you can’t write, you have nothing to say, or you don’t…

Longings

Longings

What long-term nagging desire or desires continue to flutter through your mind? You know, those persistent longings that regularly remind you of something you really want in your life? Those things that, at a glance, seem too big, too far-fetched, too good to be true? Those tidbits or full-blown ideas that never seem to go…

Ebb & Flow

Ebb & Flow

Have you ever noticed that if you allow it, your energy, motivation, even your intensity about things, has a natural ebb and flow? Some days or weeks, you’re tuned in, tapped in, and turned on. You are compelled to make things happen, tie up loose ends, or start something fresh. You are energized by new…

Embrace Your Authentic Feelings

Embrace Your Authentic Feelings

Feelings get a lot of bad press, at least that’s been my experience. We’re frequently told, directly and indirectly, that we can’t trust our feelings, that they’ll lead us astray, but I adamantly disagree. The key to tapping into the positive power of your feelings is discerning surface-level ego feelings from the truer, more resonant…
