Be Flexible and Be Willing to Let Go

Look, see how much fun I had?! Don’t worry, Ian’s not creepy, he’s awesome!

I had a fun and fabulous time recording some videos to help celebrate the publication of Overcoming Overwhelm for my publisher, Sounds True. Instead of flying out to their studio in Colorado (that would have been a lot of fun, but also a lot of missed patient time), we agreed that I’d do the filming locally—with videographer extraordinaire Ian from Vertica Productions, and they’d do the production on their end. Gads I love the power of the internet! 🙂

Deciding not to travel to Colorado is an example of how I choose to live my life based on my OWN values. While I’m thrilled to be a published author and enjoy honing an online presence, I value my patient work too, so my life requires thinking outside-the-box to make it work, and thankfully, this usually works well!

I was able to have my husband there with my to help me stay present and focus on the work at hand, rather than worrying if my glasses looked goofy or whether my hair had all the flyaways!

This video features a reading from my book.

Yours in health,

PS you can see another video on the book page! More to come. ♥

The Water You Drink: What to Watch Out For!

My husband is the water keeper. If anyone is wasting a drop in this house there’s hell to pay. As someone who can take (I know, don’t judge) four showers a day to warm my tiny little body up, I can get an earful on the regular. I can hear him unloading and reloading the dishwasher so we can squeeze in every last item. I...
