Friendship: sharing and repairing our lives

My best friend just happens to be my sister. On the other hand, maybe it’s because she’s my sister that she’s my best friend. We often take liberties with family that we might not take with friends, which can be good or bad, depending on how we relate and how self-aware we are. This got […]

It’s not only a lot more fun, but also healthier, more sustainable and more rewarding—while incidentally bringing you the enhanced well-being, abundance or fulfillment you may be seeking. What works for you may […]

I’m just a baggage-handler…

At last. After months of planning, saving and working overtime, you’re finally doing it—going to Thailand to explore the exotic Asian culture, ride in rickshaws, and eat some really good Pad Thai.

Are you a Smartass?

A new kind of relationship dynamic may be coming soon to a Smart phone near you: e-divorce. But it’s not about getting a divorce online; it’s about having to get a divorce because you’re online—constantly checking e-mails, sending texts, updating your Facebook account—and, in the process, losing any kind of meaningful connection with your partner.

I was once contacted by a woman who felt horribly trapped in her marriage: her husband had developed emphysema due to a lifetime of smoking cigarettes, and her own life had ground to a halt as she increasingly assumed a caretaking role. She was emotionally unable to break free as she had been taught to […]

Find your wild side…

Have YOU ever interviewed a fly? What about a park bench, a peanut or a toilet? A boomerang, maybe? How about a bar of chocolate…? If not, you’re in for a treat, and a whole new world of wonder, guaranteed to get you thinking—and laughing—while expanding your take on life. I’ve always had a mind full of […]

Stuck in a power struggle with yourself?

As a coach and counsellor, I’m privileged to work with some wonderful high-powered businessmen (and -women). Yet the men, particularly, often resist their power so strongly that it can sometimes be hard to break through. They’re used to being in charge and to making things work. After all, for better or for worse, they’ve been […]

Here’s a new way to think about—and live—your week

MoneyDay: Make this a day when you’re mindful about what you do with money. Donate something to a charity, give some cash to someone living on the street, or buy a lottery ticket. Think about what money means to you—the power it has and how wisely (or otherwise) you use it. What’s the most powerful […]

Maybe yes, maybe no, or maybe just maybe…?

Words are powerful, and none more so than YES and NO. Are you using them powerfully in your life? In your work, friendships and relationships, what are you saying YES and NO to? Do you say YES to honest self-expression, healthy boundaries and authentic interaction? Or do you say YES to more work, more care-taking, […]
