Thanks to my hive mind!

beehive
Thank you to everyone in my hive mind who chimed in on last week's post about independence and freedom! Here are just a few of your ideas; some came out of conversations, others from emails I received, and still others can be found in the comments left on the blog: Independence is situational; freedom is a state of being. Freedom feels flow-y (dare I say feminine?); independence feels m...

Word-perfect

A quick shout-out to those who filled out my Tell me about yourself survey—I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy day to help me out—and a request of those who haven’t yet done so: 100% anonymous, strictly market research, no commitment, and it's up for another week. For the past few years, I’ve heard a lot of buzz at New Year’s around identifying a “word for the year”—sometimes in...

What’s your value?

This month, I'm taking a look in the rearview mirror at 2018 and a peek ahead at the road ahead in 2019. I invite you to hop in and take some time to reflect on and forecast on your own life alongside me! It's the food. And it's more than the food. In less than 10 words, one of my very first clients summed up the essence of Integrative Nutrition®. And she did it using "and" instead of "but," so ...

Rearview mirror | What we learn from reaching (or not) a goal

Everything seems to slow down and turn inward at this time of year, which makes late fall/early winter a perfect time to reflect on the year gone by and think about the one ahead. I've been looking ...

Full stop.

On the anniversary of the breaking of the Harvey Weinstein story and the explosion of the #metoo movement, I've been reminded time and again of the fact that women still don't get the respect we deserve—nor do we honor ourselves very often.

New (School) Year’s Resolutions?

It's Labor Day weekend, and we've made another circle around the sun: as hard as it is to believe, I have two sophomores now: one in high school, one in college. And the new school year still feels like the start of a new year with new clothes, new school supplies, new haircuts ... and often new goals.
