Last week, Thursday afternoon, I felt a familiar ache on the right side of my throat.  I have only one tonsil (that’s another story) and it lets me know if I’m coming down with a cold.  My faithful cold-o-meter. Time to take extra immune-boosting supplements, eat nourishing food like homemade miso soup, drink plenty of […]

Nothing Like a Good Question

Posted by on Jul 8, 2015 in Entreprenurial Ponderings | 2 Comments

A question can reconnect you to your body, to your breath, to a friend. A question can set you free. Lately I’ve come across some questions that made me sit up and think.  The kind of questions that can send ripples through you. Questions you’ve longed to be asked and didn’t even know it.

A Deeper Layer of Self-Nurturing

Posted by on May 14, 2015 in Tips for Nurtured Entrepreneurs | 4 Comments

Ah, self-nurturing! It might sound like bucolic bliss at first, but what does it really mean? Do you even know what nurtures you, personally, beyond your go-to comforts? What is deeply essential to your well-being? What helps you thrive and feel deeply alive? And, how do you feed those holy hungers and do it without […]

What is Essential?

I am re-examining how I spend my time, energy, and resources. This involves discipline and discernment. I know that my days seem to fly by and mostly they’re good days, but still there’s a shadow of doubt.
