The low grade fever, one congested nostril, utter exhaustion thing got me this week. I definitely was put to the test to see if I could/would walk my talk and I’m happy to report I did!


I stayed home. I rescheduled all my in person appointments so I wouldn’t share my germs with others. I applied cold care protocol. I read a 400+ page novel and am happy to that my symptoms never got worse!


How are you feeling these days?


Each week in 2018 I’ll be sending you articles that have sparked my interest because they are all about Self-Care and Life Satisfaction.




Musings Of A Bereaved Daughter – such a beautiful essay about grief, longing and connection. One of my grief self-care practices is to dedicate a few days a year to my mama. I don’t work, I allow my feelings to be what they are (always evolving) and I even bake a cake or pie to celebrate her birthday.


An Interview About Resilience – Listening to this interview I was struck with the thought – “OMG, I think I teach resilience!”. A serious case for self-care.


Chocolate Lollipops – continuing bonds after losing her mama over Thanksgiving.


What Your Myers Briggs Personality Type Says About Your Sleeping Habits – INFJ is spot on for me. ENFJ is spot on for my husband. What about you?


Understanding Grief – One of my biggest motivators for teaching and coaching around self-care is bad/tragic stuff happens every single day. An old friend lost her husband this week, someone else’s college kid never woke up, and self-care helps us be resilient when we need to be – when tragedy strikes.


 Why Hire a Life Coach? – Are you ready? Let’s talk!



Sheryl Sandberg’s book OPTION B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience and Finding Joy is an absolute must read.


I’d love to know what you are reading,  watching and listening to these days. Tell me all about it!


I look forward to seeing you soon!
