Take Care of You

Take Care of You

I asked a group of women what they wanted to hear about when I write my next blog, what should it be about? One lady inquired about coping with the season. I immediately responded that we should take care of ourselves.   In my practice, I’ve found that women in particular, feel guilt or a sense of neglecting others, and…

Goodbyes are Hard

Goodbyes are Hard

Goodbyes are hard, but necessary at times. As difficult as they can be, they can be rewarding as well. Sometimes we hold on to things and relationships for different reasons: Sentimentality Obligation Guilt Fear None of these adjectives appear positive, right? So things in your life trigger these emotions constantly, are “tingles” that may urge you to investigate your feelings…

My Name Matters

My Name Matters

I recently started working at a local restaurant as a barista/bartender and the idea of it excited me to no end!!! In my second fictional book, one of the main characters is a bartender and PI, private investigator.

Surrender

Surrender

Determined to lose the weight I gained after taking meds to address the DVT and PE I suffered, I took to the gym. I had to surrender to what my body needed: I worked out four to six times a week with a series of cardio, core and resistance training. Six months later and after a bout of food poisoning…

I’m not sure why people are suddenly so up in arms about what has been prevalent for…ever. This is Flawed Thinking. There are many opinions out there: Black Lives Matter.

Listen Up!!!

Listen Up!!!

Recently, I’ve been posting the food I’ve prepared on Facebook for about two weeks. A few friends inquired, as it’s not my typical to share my culinary skills so publicly, but I did it for a reason. I’d fallen ill, no, not Corona, but a reaction to mold, and I had zero appetite. It didn’t help that I was being…

Confidence is a Muscle. Train it

Confidence is a Muscle. Train it

For many people, confidence is something that you are either born with, but it can be argued that it can be learned as well. With the right coach, confidence is a like a muscle, a fiber that we are all born with that we can train to achieve our goals. In fact, true confidence means that we are comfortable with…

Feeling Off-Centered?

Feeling Off-Centered?

In life we’d all like to stay centered, meaning calm, rational in your thinking no matter what is happening in our lives. We’d like to think that despite the hoopla that’s happening around us, our reaction one of subdued emotion, or at least the appropriate response. If there’s an emergency, we react in a swift alert manner. If someone disagrees…

New Year, New Leap!

New Year, New Leap!

“When you let go of fear and take a leap of faith, the net will appear.”   I read a similar quote recently and adapted it to my experience. Limited beliefs—fear and the sort hold us back from our authentic selves. A co-worker recently inquired, “Andrea, when and how are you so comfortable/open and free to engage people the way…
