  • Bliss claimers: Who ARE these people?

    I’m finding out. I’m interviewing them, right here. People who are actually doing it. A series of video interviews. Just for you! I run them as they are ready for viewing beginning the last week of March 2012. (OMG, it’s my inner Oprah coming out!) Real people, in the flesh, claiming their own bliss. Sharing […]

  • burning question: what would you like to stop doing?

    From the past: Stop blaming myself first; Pretending that I didn’t have any needs; Treating what I wanted as unnecessary; Putting myself last on my list; Staying in relationships – with friends, family, colleagues, ex-boyfriends because I thought that my life would be lonely otherwise; Planning every inch of my life; Wishing for something different […]

  • my ingredients for bliss – a manifesto

    Everyone is always teaching you how to love yourself (you just may not agree with their methods). Eat well. Sleep well. Laugh well. Live well. You are the hero you’ve been waiting for. You are brilliant. Your job is to honour and channel that brilliance. You don’t control who loves you. You don’t control who […]

  • tell me your secrets, hopes, fears and dreams + questions

    Give ’em up! I dare you! I confess. I am deeply interested in your big questions, your burning questions and your secret questions about how to create and follow your bliss. Tell me. No really, tell me: ::What you want to know; ::What crosses your mind that you forget and then remember and forget and […]

  • burning question: what’s one dumb thing you used to believe in?

    The laws that we create for ourselves lurk in the shadows of our periphery and dictate our follies. We test both might and fright to live by them. It’s the imagined prison that prevents the living of fantastical lives in harmony with your true self, your true love and your true work. At one point […]

  • love your strengths and you too can have career bliss

    I love the idea of a strength. I especially love the very thought of using my strengths to feel strengthened. And I love Marcus Buckingham and his crew for naming that and championing this evolution in how we view how we work. Question tho’: Why is it so difficult to see your own strengths if […]

  • on the matter of death + the possibility of birth (like now)

    Learned from Vanity Fair that my childhood super crush Michael J. Fox and I have this in common: When it’s our time to go, the grim reaper will find us being licked to death by puppies. It’s a done deal. Decided. My fate is sealed. Who’s with me? Too scary to ponder? Here’s what’s real […]

  • Unconventional career tools make your old world new again

    A relaxed mind that’s having fun acquires, reveals, and contributes way more than a stressed out one. This much you probably already know. My confession is this: Unless I see something or do it for myself – experience it somehow, I have no idea what’s going on. My truth is this: Learning was stressful growing […]

  • This isn’t about nudity – it’s “on-the-job” exposure

    It’s (like seriously long over-due) time to re-imagine our concept of work. Work is not just a means to an end. Real work is about creating a life that integrates all parts of you. Meaning: The simplest thing that you do is your gift to the world. It’s simply how you are. You need no […]

  • What the dog taught #2: We create our own delays

    Anyone committed to dog training success with the fastest, most loving results will tell you: The best way to get a dog to buy into your methods is to make the outcome worth their while.   So here’s the scenario: Sonnet follows me around while I get her food ready. I pick up her bowl, […]
