Listening Skills Blog April 2019

Do you remember your childhood? How your parents talked to you? How other elders spoke to you? Were you acknowledged? Did they want to listen to your opinions? Did they bother to ask how your day was? How you felt about something that happened to you? What you wanted? Or, did they ignore you, NOT ask about your day, or what was the matter? Did they tell you to be quiet if you had an opinion or feelings they didn’t want to hear? 


September Birthday Blog

Birthdays. BIRTHDAYS!!!! Ugh! Who else has a love-hate relationship with their birthday? Who just LOOOVES when their birthday rolls around? Are you one of the lucky ones who doesn’t get what I call the “birthday blues?” If you are one of those people, then congratulations! (I am rolling my eyes, but I truly am happy for you…on some level. I am just jealous, so please forgive the snarkiness.) ;)


Health and Healing: Courageous Choices

Nineteen years old. That’s how old I was when I got diagnosed with diverticulitis. This is a health issue that usually occurs in older populations. According to this Cleveland Clinic article, “Diverticulosis is very common in Western populations and occurs in 10 percent of people over age 40 and in 50 percent of people over age 60. The rate of diverticulosis increases with age, and it affects almost everyone over age 80.”


Everything Hurt, Including My Feelings (1 of 3)

Outside of some beach trips with my mom and her side of the family, I wasn't one of those kids who grew up going on family vacations; my parents separated when I was one. We didn't hop planes to go places, we didn't go on road trips anywhere – no ski lodges, no Carowinds or Busch Gardens, nothing. I did hear several times about potential trips we were going to go on, though. All that being said, I always wanted to try my hand at skiing.


Everything Hurt, Including My Feelings (2 of 3)

Epic fail in regards to my first ski experience, but that was ok because it was now time to take a snowboarding lesson. Maybe this would be my thing. Maybe I would get it. Maybe I'd be a natural, I did do yoga, after all, and I have fairly good balance. HA! And maybe I needed to just be in the moment and wait and see what unfolded instead of putting pressure on myself and on the situation.


Everything Hurt, Including My Feelings (3 of 3)

On Wednesday, February 15th I hopped a plane to Salt Lake City, UT to make my second attempt at snowboarding and/or skiing, depending on if the snowboarding didn't take and I decided to try skiing. I was on my way to where there was real snow, and real slopes, and where people really knew how to ski. Oh my!


My Path to Becoming a Life Coach

Is there something, anything, that you feel comes naturally to you? Maybe it was a skill you were born with or one you developed over time. Well, for me, that skill is coaching. No, not sports coaching, but life coaching. There may be some similarities between the two – strategizing, motivating, and finding weaknesses and improving upon them, to name a few – but they’re still different ball games. Pun intended.


Five Easy Self-Care Tips to Better Health

Do you take care of yourself — truly care for your being? If so, how do you do that? What does that look like? Maybe you don't know what self-care is, or maybe you think you have no time for it.
