Diversifying Your Life Now That You’ve Reached Midlife

We spend all of our lives narrowing in and focusing in on what we THINK is important, only to realize at some point that we got it all wrong.

The only way to survive, reinvent who you are, move forward, have new ideas, create new adventures in your life, and develop relationships you truly want to […]

When Your Spouse’s Goals Don’t Match Your Own

What’s the key to a great marriage?

My answer today will be: compromise. (After 30 years together, I have a list of words. You understand, right?)

Because there comes a point in every great marriage where you simply won’t agree. You want to do one thing, and your spouse wants to do something else.

Some things are easy […]

From Wishing To Serious: What Does It Take To Start A Second Act?

I remember sitting there, hating everything around me. A failing business. A stressed-out relationship. Surrounded by a community that didn’t get me. Doing work I didn’t like to do. Bogged down in the crap just trying to survive.

And no matter which way I turned, nothing worked. It was more crap. More negativity. Slowly going from […]

Shrink Your Reinvention Deadline To Get Things Done

Are you a procrastinator? In some aspect, I think we all have a little bit of that in us.

Because in life, some things have higher priorities than others. We design our days around making sure the most important things get done.
If you have to be at work at 8 and it takes twenty minutes to […]

You’re Ready For A Transformation. Here Are The 14 Things You Need To Do Next

You’ve just faced a big change. You know you’re ready for so much more.

But what?

That’s the question. Because you know now is your time. You know you’re ready to transform your life in a big way. But you’re not quite sure where to begin.

Reinventing The Four Most Important Things Every Day

The world is going a little crazy right now.
You’ve said that before, haven’t you?

But no matter how crazy the times we’re living in are, I’m willing to bet if you go back a generation or two (or three or four), your relatives all had a time in their lives where they thought the same things.

[…]

What Won’t Change In 10 Years

What if someone asked you a very simple question.
“Where do you think you’ll be ten years from today? What do you want in your life in ten years?”
Chances are you’ve thought about this on many levels. We all have. You can’t read a self-help book or take a class in life balance without goal planning […]

Accept Who You Are In Order To Change

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself
just as I am, then I can change.”
Carl Roger
I reached a point where all I wanted to do was change.

Nothing was going right. Everything seemed to be going against me. I wasn’t living in the right place. My relationships weren’t healthy. I didn’t enjoy the […]

Why It’s More Important Than Ever To Be Yourself

Have you ever been scared to reveal who you really are?

Yep, me too.

I’d surrounded myself with all kinds of people. Looking back, I think it’s a product of being a Gen Xer. When I moved from the teens to my twenties, the world was a freer place. Or at least, it seemed so in my […]

Hitting 50 … But Not My Potential

We sat there with a glass of wine in our hands, chatting about the year we were about to leave behind.

“Oh. My. Gaaad. Was that the fastest year yet?”

We’d all flown in for the first trip of many, I hope, to have with this amazing set of friends. And as we toasted our friend on […]

How To Fall In Love With Your Life … Again

I heard love described today in a very interesting manner.

I was watching an interview with Sloane Crosley, author of The Clasp, who described love this way.
It’s like all the cookbooks available now to help you eat better. You don’t have to have them to tell you what to do; on some level you already know. […]

Why Women CAN Have It All

I’m a member of Generation X. I had a mom that stayed home with my sister and me, while my father worked as an engineer. We lived a solid, healthy middle-class life.

Yet from my earliest memories, I remember my mom coaching us on how to live as adults. Go to college. Get a good job. […]
