I am not the sum of five people I spend the most time with and neither are you!

For awhile now, when I’ve heard the phrase “You’re the sum of the five people you spend the most time with,” it’s never felt right to me. In fact, it’s actually rubbed me the wrong way. While, for a long time, I didn’t get why, and I tried to fall into what other highly-successful people and coaches were saying, I could feel the dissonance that lay underneath this. So, as with anything that pokes at me, I began to ask why. Why didn’t this feel true to me, and most importantly, why did this idea get under my skin so much? […]

What to Do When Your Family Triggers You…

So, yesterday, I was at a family reunion. Even though, this is a part of my family that I had only connected to just a few years ago, family can have a way of (mostly unintentionally) bringing up our stuff and yesterday, I had this experience with someone I hadn’t met before.

Subconsciously, I may have even treated him less than due to his job or felt that I didn’t need to acknowledge him because he wasn’t family, a friend or someone I knew. This time, though, I felt an instinctual pull to speak to him, to acknowledge him, and really, to acknowledge his humanity. I do this often. When I’m walking. At the gym. […]

Do you know when someone’s lying to you + Final Reminder for the Online Intuition Workshop!

I’ve been thinking a lot about intuition lately, and really, all of the ways that I use my intuition, which for me, is part of my daily decision-making. And, one way, that’s often undiscussed, but can be very helpful, as we’re going through this journey we call life :), is our innate ability to distinguish if someone’s lying to us or not. How is this possible? Whether we realize or not, we are all connected, and that old saying about “I’m rubber, you’re glue,” is simply not true. If we choose, we can always tune in and connect to implicitly […]
