Me, Myself, I am Enough
On August 1, 2019 | 2 Comments

  I’m asked about confidence a lot. Why am I so confident? Is it innate, can one learn how to become more confident? What can I do to gain confidence? When I reflect on my own experiences, contemplating why I feel I am enough, several factors come to mind: I played sports since the seventh […]

On March 26, 2019 | 0 Comments

I wrote an article a while ago addressing this topic for women http://trustingthetingles.com/my-take-on-five-promises-every-woman-needs-to-make-to-herself/.

Even if you think you want to see the other person suffer in some horrific way and be in pain—it’s typically because you’re in pain. Maybe you had grand ideas and dreams for the future that […]

Jealousy, Regret, Shame and Other Unnecessary Emotions
On March 14, 2019 | 0 Comments

  When I hear someone discuss how “jelly” they are of someone else, I always stop and wonder…why? Jealousy is a waste of time in my opinion and it does more harm than good.

One lesson I’m often met with, is acceptance. It’s natural to want to control the outcome of things: interviews, sports, prepared meals, children…however, the truth is, you can prepare the best you can and perform to your best. What will happen, will and we have to accept the outcome.

Intention of the Day (Smile!)
On May 17, 2018 | 0 Comments

In yoga, before practice starts, the instructor may suggest that you set an intention: dig deeper, respect your body, or don’t compete with your neighbor… I’m writing another book, My Intentional Year, where I chronicle a year of setting a daily intention. I decided that on one particular day, I would smile at every person […]
