Better the Balance, Better the World.

Better the Balance, Better the World.


International Women’s Day is Friday, March 8th.

The International Women’s Day 2019 campaign theme of  #BalanceforBetter  is a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world.

I’m honored to be a guest speaker for a company that recognizes equality and doesn’t see barriers for moving forward.  As I prepare for my presentation, I wanted to pass along to you some information that I will be sharing with my audience.

My intention is for it to move you to great accomplishments in your life that fills your heart and those of others.

Dr. Tererai Trent is the author of The Awakened Woman; A Guide to Remembering and Igniting your Sacred Dreams.  She is an exemplary example of passing the baton forward. During an interview with Marie Forleo, she was asked, “What advice she would give to women who were having difficulty identifying their great hunger (purpose, passion) in their hearts?” 

Here’s what she had to say:

“We all have hunger for a meaningful life.  How do you tap into that hunger?  You ask, ‘What Breaks My Heart?’  Because it is in those moments, those moments of our brokenness, we realize that it is not the past, it is not the challenges in front of us.  Once we realize that, we have the power to find the solution inside.  We start to hear the stirring in our own heart pointing us to something greater than who we are.  And we find the answer to that Great Hunger.  But we must be  INTENTIONAL. “

A Reminder We Can All Use


A few signs along the way after teaching my Mindfulness Course in Florida.  We are all so unique and special and although our stories may be different we are all the same – and we all need kindness, love and support.  Here’s to staying mindful!


I want to pass along something a distinguished mentor told me.

I try my best to put it into practice. When I do, it changes everything.

It keeps me grounded and mindful of what really matters.

Truly, I can’t express enough how it has opened up my thinking.

I am grateful for this valuable lesson and hope it has the same influence on you.

Here’s what she told me…

Whatever you do, do it with love.

In other words, no matter what you put into practice, choose love over resistance, fear, anger…

Then watch the magic happen.



The Forward Thinking Mind

The words that you say to yourself matter. Our brains tend to believe what we hear. Develop a positive mindset by creating a “Greatest Hits Playlist” of positive thoughts. Think of it like a musician preparing for a concert. Choose empowering words that soothe and heal. Choose love.

Remember: We do have the power to change our thoughts and change our life. ~Organically Yours

Regret, Guilt, Worry – How To Overcome Negative Emotions

Can you recall a time when something in your life didn’t go right?  Do you wish things would have turned out differently and now you have regrets over it?  You’re not alone – many people feel this way – including myself.

I have been such a planner all my life that it was difficult for me to stay in the present moment. I can recall many circumstances where I was always reaching or looking over the fence. I didn’t know how to enjoy or appreciate what was right in front of me. I know this has caused me to miss out on a lot.

So yes, I have regrets, but it’s not wise to live there. The problem is that regret is like carrying around heavy baggage – it’s a heavy load to carry.  All that heavy energy can get in the way and tangled up in other emotions of guilt and worry – not a healthy combination.

What we want is to be able to create new energy to move forward.

Here are three tips to help you let go of the past and live in the present.

Tip # 1:  Show Yourself  A Little Love

How would you show love to someone you cared for who was going through a difficult time?  Compassion and empathy are two words that pop into mind.  Try doing the same for yourself.  We’re human and we are going to make mistakes – that’s part of life.  One of the biggest gifts you can give yourself is to treat yourself kindly.  Forgiveness is another important aspect to creating new energy – we’re not perfect beings and that’s okay.  Beef up the love.

Tip #2:  Keep The Faith

We don’t always understand the “bigger” picture in life – the “grand” scheme of things.  Although we wish we had a crystal ball to see into the future – the truth is we don’t really know what tomorrow may bring.  This is why we need to keep the faith alive and trust in GOD – or in other words, the Grand Overall Design.  Knowing that in time, all things will get better.

Tip #3:  Make It A Learning Experience

It’s so easy to get caught up in the moment of what didn’t go right, that we neglect to see what else happened in that experience.  Usually there are little golden nuggets if we look close enough to learn from the situation and make us better for it.    So the question is, What can you learn from a past experience that can make you better today?

Bonus Tip:

Remember, you don’t want to pull that heavy load a minute longer – here’s how to draw the line when you’re dwelling in the past on all that negativity.  You simply need to remember to LEAVE IT IN THE PAST.  That was then, this is NOW!  Let it GO!  I mean it…really, let it go for good and free yourself.  By doing so, you will be taking a huge step to living in the PRESENT!





They say that laughter is the best medicine.  I couldn’t agree more.

Earlier this morning I was getting myself all worked up about something and was feeling overly stressed.  The stress weakened my confidence and I started to hear the voice of that little gremlin that comes out every now and then.  When my gremlin makes an appearance, that little rascal puts on a mighty powerful show.  She likes to take hold of my ear and remind me of all the things that I worked so hard to reverse and/or let go of in my life.

Every now and then if I’m disconnected from my “self” she likes to whisper little untruths to me.  And if I don’t put a stop to her nonsense right away, her whispers quickly can turn into a loud voice that almost has an echo effect.  It’s as if I hear in multi-dimensional voices shouting all the things that tell me, ‘I’m not good enough’ or ‘It’s not good enough.’

But for some reason, when I heard her voice this time, I found it very funny.  And the more I thought about it, I started to LAUGH.  The next thing I knew, I was laughing out loud until tears were rolling down my face.  You see, I was laughing at myself.  How silly was I to even think these things and let them get the best of me.  The thought of me listening to that gibberish and allowing myself to be full of  fear, worry, and doubt created such an anxious state of mind that I really had to look at this from a different perspective.  And when I did, I just started to LAUGH.


The more I laughed, the more I thought about the word LAUGH and what it stands for.  I understand that laughing is an expression of amusement but this was so much more.  What I was really curious about was, ‘What was the message behind my fit of laughter?’  And then in my mind’s eye I looked at the word LAUGH and there it was.

L = Look

A = At

U = Us

G = Getting

H = Happy

Think about it.  As a society we are always on the go.  We tell ourselves that we have to be better and do better – that our best is not enough.  That’s simply untrue!  As long as we know that we are giving our best and doing our best that should be plenty.

Look, I’m all about productivity and efficiency.  Seriously, it’s what my career has been all about.  But when I saw the humor in how we work ourselves up into this hyper state of over thinking everything to the point of almost pure insanity and detachment of our true self, I found that it was necessary to take a big step back and give this the attention it deserves.  I had to ask myself,  ‘What did I just learn about myself here?’

From this experience I came away with a few things…

Laughing kicks in all those wonderful endorphins that make us happy and can transform our mood immediately.  After all, who doesn’t want to feel happy?  Laughter allows for us to be forgiving of ourselves and yes, others.  I also learned that I don’t have to take life so seriously.  I can ease up and be gentle with myself.  It’s super important to be your own best friend. We’re not always going to please everyone and that’s okay.  Slow down and give yourself permission to breathe. We do our best work when we remain calm.

And most importantly, life is good, so love yourself in this life and always remember to LAUGH.  It is the best medicine out there!



I’VE MISSED YOU – Let’s Catch Up!

I’ve Missed You – Let’s Catch Up!

It has been a long time since we have spoken and I really do miss you!

I am sure a lot of things have been going on in your life and I want to hear all about them.

So let’s catch up and talk.  I would really love to hear from you!

I can’t wait to catch up!

Closets Are Indicative Of Your Mind!

I’ve heard it said that ‘Closets are indicative of our mind.’  A messy closet, a cluttered mind.  An organized closet, a clear mind.

Closets Are Indicative Of Your Mind

I would agree that once a person cleans out their closet, they feel like they can think again. The problem is that many people have a hard time with the de-cluttering process. They tell me they feel overwhelmed just thinking about it.  They feel fearful that once they start they won’t be able to finish and they’ll be left with an even bigger mess. Some even report a sense of panic.

As a Clutter Coach who has worked with many people in their closets, I can share with you that these feelings are not just about the daunting act of  cleaning up.  It goes a little deeper.  It’s about what their things represent for them; unrealized plans, long-lost memories, etc.  

But I’ve got good news!  I cracked the code for cluttered closets. I’m about to share with you

3 Secret Elements that will radically change your clutter situation. Think of it as your very own Secret Elixir.

When It All Feels Too Much

When it all feels too much and trying to get through everything feels utterly impossible….

I want you to take a deep breath and say this immediately:

“I can change everything I need and more – It’s all within me.”
My coach Derek turned me onto this affirmation and I want to share it with you because it’s powerful! It’s powerful because it’s true.  We all have inside of us what we need – we just need to be reminded of this.  If at this very moment you are feeling overwhelmed, and it feels as if you lost your way, please register for my upcoming class.  I know where you are – I understand what you are going through.

Now is the time you want to learn some really good skill sets to balance out your life.  When we are out of alignment in our life, it usually is due to a conflict in our values.  The good news is this is something that can be worked out.

I encourage you to register for my upcoming class, especially if you are experiencing excessive clutter or any other outward manifestation. 

Register now and then congratulate yourself for taking the first step to change.  I look forward to your presence.
