Do Better (+ How I Royally Messed Up)

cloudy day

I messed up.

Like, big time. I should have known better. I thought I did know better.

Life can be messy. One part spills over and mashes into another. Never stagnant; ever shifting; interconnected + paradoxical. Rendering the whole bit slightly out of our hands.

The Habits That Hurt Relationships (+ The Ones That Saved Mine)

The Habits That Hurt Relationships (+ the ones that saved mine)

Have you ever been surprised when a couple you knew got divorced? More than a decade ago I was separated for a short time from my husband, Doug, and all of my friends were surprised.

It's extremely hard to predict which relationships will end in divorce, but bad marriages almost always exhibit what psychologist Dr. John Gottman calls, "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse."

The Five Stages Of Relationships


by: Mary Ellen Goggin

Nature evolves in predetermined patterns. Day follows night, winter spring, and adulthood follows childhood and infancy. This is also true of romantic relationships. Although each couple is unique, relationships tend to evolve in patterns or stages. Each stage provides a set of risks and challenges to navigate as a couple. If the couple succeeds, then the result is personal growth and expansion. If not, they remain stuck and experience difficulty moving to the next level.

How Being A Working Mother Made Me A Better Leader

How Being A Working Mother Made Me A Better Leader

My second son just graduated High School and headed off to VA Tech this Fall. He’s the last one out of the nest and it’s got me thinking about the first half of my parenting life – the half where they are children. I’m grateful for so many things about being a parent, not the least of which is having two fine young men to show for it, but I’m also grateful for what they taught me – about leadership.

3 Simple Ways You Can Inspire Your Kids Right Now


This article is from an interview I did that shares 3 simple ways to support our children in living empowered lives…

Q: How can we support our children in uncovering their mission in life and doing things that are true for them?

Once we start to explore our own flavors in life, once this process is going, we can start to support our children in their own interests. An important aspect of this is not trying to project our own desires and dreams onto our children. I did a teen call last week and we spent a good 30 minutes talking about this, how projecting our own dreams onto our teens can really create a wedge or crevice in our relationship with them. And this is a tough one, many of us do it without even noticing.

Be Patient With Love

patience with love

The uni-verse has certainly thrown me a lot of curve balls the past couple of years when it comes to love and romantic relationships and I certainly have learned so much about love and myself from all of them. I believe that life always brings us exactly what we need when we need it, and I also believe that all of my past relationships have truly prepared me to finally step into a place where I can feel a deep, profound love for another person and remain rooted in my connection with myself and the divine at the same time.

When To Love, When To Let Go


I’m writing a blog series about M. Scott Peck’s The Road Less Traveled (you can read Part 1 here), and as I read the book, I came across a definition of love that is perhaps the best I’ve ever read. Dr. Peck differentiates between “falling in love” and “genuine love.” Falling in love he defines by the psychiatric term “cathexis,” which he defines as “being attracted to, invested in, and committed to an object outside ourselves.” We can “cathect” a beloved, a child, or even a hobby, like writing or painting.

The Crossing: How Parents And Children Help One Another Through Change

A Road…

is a black, flat, stretched rectangle that blocked him from the places he wanted to go. A road is where the gwass, weeds, sidewalk, and even the diwt ends and the fumy, Hot! Hot! Hot! oil begins.

“Careful,” she warned him in that voice he knew not to question, but of what, he could not see. There was nothing coming or going or crossing… except for one dry, squiggly worm. He loved worms.
