Metal to the Pedal

Metal to the Pedal How long have you been driving? I've been driving since I was about 14. At the time, my sister Lisa was going to Boston University, and my father and I would drive up to visit after working a half day at our pharmacy. On the way home he'd take the 'scenic route' - Route 1 - that brought us through the backyards of MA and into RI. A little after we hit Foxborough (where the Pats play), he'd pull over and let me take the wheel into Attleboro, just as we were ready to cross the MA/RI line. It was a fast car - an Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. And, according to my dad, I had a lead foot. It was pretty exciting to drive and I looked forward to it! Later, when I moved to LA, I owned my dream car... a '64 1/2 Mustang - hard top, straight-six. It was...

RESET:  Resilience

RESET: Resilience

Most people think you're born with resilience.  You aren't.  It comes after your stress.... as you recover. Illness, job transition, divorce, debt and losses are all forms of adversity that can knock someone to the ground.  What is the worst experience you have had in life? Do you feel you've made a complete recovery?  Use these questions as a guide to gauge your success.  If you answer yes to 2 or more, it's time to RESET. Do you manage your emotions well? Are you able to easily pull in your focus and stay focused? How often do you feel empowered? Where in your life do you still feel like a victim? How efficiently do you solve problems How social are you? Do you have resourceful coping skills? Are you easily meeting the goals you set for yourself?

In The Meantime

In The Meantime

In The Meantime I've got a couple of clients who are in transition right now, and their biggest struggle is The Meantime. Can you relate?  There's always something that is changing in your world, isn't there? And the most challenging aspect of change is what to do in the meantime. By most standards, waiting sucks. You feel out of control, your spirit diminishes and you may even get a little depressed. The flip to 'hunky dory' may be a stretch at first.... would you settle for 'OK'? RESETs: You feel the windup..... you know you're going to that place - what do you do?!  Here are a few RESETs for you to practice to keep you out of a downward spiral:  Be Graceful - a lot of times when you're in the meantime, you have a little tendency to get out of sorts, don't you?  Taking a moment to switch into your higher power will keep you in a state of grace and good standing. ...

From Glam To Eternity….. David Bowie

From Glam To Eternity….. David Bowie

It's almost midnight, and I've just learned of David Bowie's death. I was hoping to get an original print from the archives and resend the original Rock Star Monday. For those of you new to my community, that was a really cool editorial I sent out for about a year covering Rock Stars with a relevant message. Unfortunately the template isn't available... here's some copy and a tribute. As we reflect on David's contribution to the world, think about your own input and any changes that would be right for you. Godspeed David.... thanks for the music!   "Changes" "I still don't know what I was waiting for And my time was running wild A million dead-end streets Every time I thought I'd got it made It seemed the taste was not so sweet So I turned myself to face me But I've never caught a glimpse Of how the others must see the faker I'm much too fast to take that test"...
