The Eve Of His Birth
It's the eve of his birth. Our son's. Tomorrow he turns 7. This time, 7 years ago, I was eating pizza on my cousin's veranda, with my belly so huge and heavy that I wasn't even sure if I could physically fit any pizza in there! I did.  In case you're wondering ;-) Fast forward to the next

My Family (The Dream Team Mindset)

Why It Doesn’t Exist Outside Of You (Work-Life Balance)
We have become inundated with the notion of ‘WORK-LIFE’ balance. With the idea of ‘having it all together’ and with the idea that not having it all together means failure. With the idea that not having ‘balance’ is a problem. You see, right here, I have a problem with that idea… it te

Over the years as a Life Coach I have learned, on a VERY personal level, that a fulfilling life does not start in the head. At it's core, it starts in the heart. While our brain (the logical mind in our head) plays an obvious role in our lives, aligning the two (logical mind and heart mind) is param

How My Husband Offended Me – And I Thank Him For It
This morning I decided to simplify my life (even more) and go on a major de-clutter binge.
