Powerful Coaching. Powerful Results.
I know there's something you need. If you need to find the kind of job that really suits you, I can help you do it. If you need to battle burnout, I can help you learn approaches, tactics and techniques to get your breath back. If you need to get better at doing your job, or find more meaning and purpose in your work, or get unstuck, we can certainly do that.
So what do you say? Want to get to work?
I’ve been writing every Sunday since, oh, the dawn of time (Internet time, at least) and some of those Sundays have also been Mother’s Day.
Last year, I wrote my own version of Lean In, I guess, with What Working Moms Really Want. I just re-read this one and I really like it. Perhaps that’s a funny thing to say, but I don’t often go back and read things I’ve written.
With me and writing it’s totally catch and release.
In 2011, I imagined what an Empty Nest Mother’s Day would be like. I’m getting closer and closer to that reality today, and while I caught this one, it’s harder and harder to release with each passing day.
I asked Who’s A Mom? in 2010, which I consider my love letter to everyone – both men and women – who reach out and help children.
“With every kindness to a child, you create a better world,” I said then, and I mean it still.
Then in 2009, I repeated a column from 2007 simply called “Mother’s Day”, where I suggested we celebrate every holiday every single day.
Somehow that brilliant idea didn’t really catch fire.
In the sandwich year there, 2008, I wrote about busyness (it must have been in context of my own situation) with Repeal HAFTA.
And in May, 2006, I was a few months away from starting to blog so the words were still in my head and heart, unreleased.
What a journey. What an experience. What richness.
And right now I’m talking about my 20+ years of mothering two wonderful people who inspire me every day to step up, be present and be fully myself.
Because when I am able to do that, they are able to do so, too. It’s a love circle, baby.
And, believe me, I get so much more than I give.
Oh, people, I am truly blessed. May you find blessings, too – full with love and acceptance – in each and every one of your days.
