The Power Of Simple Questions

disappointed and discouraged

I spent last week sick with a chest cold, exhausted from promoting my new book, Free Yourself, on radio shows, social media, and an East Coast tour this fall. But as I lay sick on my deck, soaking up rays, I noticed a pressure on my heart. Along with deep exhaustion from a busy year of editing, proofreading and promoting, I felt disappointed and discouraged that a few close friends were too busy to help me.

Great Mother Love - For When Life Feels Heavy, Hard And Too Much

Watch this Great Mother Love video and meditation & surrender what’s weighing on your heart.

I don’t know why we think when we grow up that we are supposed to be all strong, and have it all together. That when we become parents or responsible adults that we won’t get scared or confused. That when life is hard we should just buck up and push through, instead of doing what a little kid would do – have a little cry, wrap up in a blankie, and ask it’s mom to make it all better with a kiss, a hug and her magic wand.

How Road Rage Transformed Into Grace

Road rage


It’s one of the things I do that I dislike the most.

I stack up my plate, fill it to overflowing, wait until the last minute to eat, prepare, leave the house, and then it leaves me in a state of panic and I rush: to get there, to not be late, to be on time, to not be judged by myself or others, to prove that I can do what I say I’m going to do!

Can you relate?

Why Is It Easy To Be Nice To Other People...But Hard To Be Nice To Ourselves?

be kind to yourself

“When you know better, you do better.”

—Maya Angelou

Have you ever noticed that it’s pretty easy to be nice to other people — to smile, to offer a few words of appreciation, to extend a helping hand, to say “you look beautiful” or “you’re doing an amazing job!” — but much harder to be kind to yourself?

Is It My Intuition Or Is It My Resistance? Here's How To Know The Difference


On the one hand, there’s listening to your body, your inner wisdom, your gut feelings, your intuition, or really whatever you want to call your divine instinct.

And then on the other, there’s resistance.

What’s the difference?

Rethinking The Busy-ness Of Our Lives


No matter where I am or who I'm with, conversation inevitably turns towards how busy we are. Let’s face it – we’re often on our phones answering texts, or we are thinking about what we need to do or who to call. We’re rarely in the present moment.

Normal Is Boring

Normal Is Boring

We all have ideas of what ‘normal’ looks like.
Jeans and a button up and tasteful jewelry.
Job in an office.

Get Up Stand Up!

Beach front

A few years ago a close friend and I headed to Jamaica for a much needed vacation. We were there in September and by this time the resorts were rather quiet, the way a relaxing vacation was meant to be.  While staying at the resort there were about 5 other families total! The beach was serene, the waves were wonderful and the view from where I sat was breath taking.

How To Run A Mountain

run a mountain

By: Kimmy Klassen

I really do want to tell you what I know about running up and down a mountain. This story wasn’t meant to be a metaphor for life, yet...

Earlier this summer I hiked to the top of Red Mountain, the local ski hill that I can see from my living room. At the top I enjoyed views of the surrounding towns, rivers and mountains as far as the eye could see. I also saw a man run to the top, shirt off, sweaty and panting only slightly. He was older…than me. I wondered if I could run to the top of Red Mountain?

A few weeks later I decided I would, or at least try.

I ran from the upper edge of Rossland to the top and back down again. Twice now, it’s addictive, the euphoric high fuels my weekend.

This photo was taken on a different recon mission for a run. Little did I know I would run up what I saw in my view.
