To climb your personal mountain…you must commit to you!

Okay, so let me be real.  I might climb a trail up a mountain, but I'd never rock climb.  I'm just not that kind of gal. I'm more the dancer and singer type than the athlete.  However both activities require a commitment.  A promise that you will keep going even when it gets tough... because [...]

Are you expressing the real you?

Are you expressing the real you? What does authenticity mean to you? Is it about always telling the truth? Can you honestly say you’ve never said a ‘white lie’ to protect someone’s feelings? Or even to protect yourself? Authenticity is not simply about telling the truth, it is about fully expressing yourself in a real and honest way.  It’s about sharing with others what you feel and think, not from a place of judgement but from of acceptance and love.

So it’s not surprising that we want the same from our parents.  […]
