Paris in the springtime…. mon dieu!

I took 4 years of French in high school and  I should have paid more attention. Thankfully I travelled with my bestie Tim who happens to be a genius with languages. Flying non stop on SAS from Stockholm to Paris took only 2 hours and 15 minutes, easy peasy!! The point of my being invited

Summer, summer, summer time. A little DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince AND an exercise for you to start this season off right

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeaaaaar. Oh wait, that’s another song. The summer weather is here, birds are singing, pollen is flying and filthing up everything (at least it covers over the dust in my house and I blame it on that :)) and we have vacations about to start. What are your

Sweden and her interesting traditions – Ascension PLUS Cow Release Day!

Happy Thursday! Or better yet Happy Ascension Day (translated to Christ flies to Heaven Day in Sweden).

My little slice of heaven on earth

This week I have been spending my time in Surahammar, Sweden attending a course on Self Esteem, Stress and Mindfulness Coaching. The reason I decided to invest another week of my life on yet another education is so that I can have the additional coaching skills in my tool box and so that I can

Death and dying. How losing loved ones helped me find my way.

Ever since 2005 I have had a different view of dying. August of 2005 I lost my father at the age of 71 to asbestos cancer AND my best friend who was 43 years old died 2 weeks later of an embolism. It was a surreal time in my life, to say the least, and

Open for business.

I did it!!! YES!!! In order to become certified as a Life Coach, I needed to complete 60 hours of training hours and today I completed that goal… and ahead of schedule, to boot! This is where the power of goal setting returned RESULTS. I knew what had to be done. I knew when it

How to increase your awareness of yourself and others through human connection

I have always loved being in the company of others even as a young person. In my early years, between the ages of 5 and 14 we lived in an area of New York where our closest neighbors home was half a mile away in the woods so not much social interaction there. There were

Quality versus Quantity … which would you rather have?

Happy Friday! It is hard to believe that it is Spring with the 3 feet of snow I still have in my yard but the sun continues to shine and melt it down. Soon I expect we will get another snow storm! 🙂 Ahhh, Sweden in March…. As promised to you last week, I’ve been
