You Are the Expert in You

My best work comes in reflecting back to each person the answers they have within themselves. Being well is the foundation for living the life you are meant to live. It allows you to be who you are and do the work that sustains you and gives back to the world.

I will share a way of thinking about your bodymind complex as an integrated whole. A way to make small decisions in life that trend you toward wellness, not dis-ease.

Remember that your puppy considers a wide range of items edible that you cannot imagine they would. You need to really sit on the floor and ask yourself what is small enough to be swallowed – those things must be conscientiously put on higher ground. Then find the things that are small enough to be chewed into pieces that could be swallowed. Or are handled a lot by you, especially when you might have been eating.

Do You Underestimate Your Dog?

Do You Underestimate Your Dog?

I have a lot to say about dogs. Which is highly curious since the reason I share my life with a dog is precisely because of the wordless communication that fills my introverted soul. I love Zanzi. So much so, I had to write a book about our rather tumultuous early relationship. As I wrote that book, I did a lot of reading.

It makes me proud to have created a little slice of the internet where people could feel like there was an easy way to start to change the opportunities that are possible in their lives.

For me, writing this post brought me a fabulously supportive network and a chance to become a virtual entrepreneur, making a living from being a kind, generous, and thoughtful person outside of cubicle captivity.

If You Need to Write It, Someone Needs to Read It

If You Need to Write It, Someone Needs to Read It

We all love our dogs and there are thousands of books celebrating the joys of our dogs. But the honest reality is that they live very short lives. When I went through the intense and ultimately fatal illness of my first dog, I felt all alone. I often wrote through my feelings. And after a few years, the thought of writing a book to help others through a very difficult period in their lives emerged.
