A Woman’s Heart — The Scariest Trail In The World

I recently saw pictures of what is called the “Scariest Trail in the World” on a mountain in China. It has since been added to my bucket list.

Like My Father

I’m sure we’ve all asked ourselves this question: Am I just like my father?  But the real question is: Do we really want to know the answer? With the passing of my 35th birthday this year, I’ve found myself reflecting back over the last several decades, the laughter and tears and the lessons I’ve learned. But I hit an interesting …

Escaping The Cult Of Darcy

“Illusions are dangerous people. They have no flaws.” – Irene, Sabrina (1995) I’ve read most everything that Jane Austen has written.

Are You Desperate?

Recently, as I was meeting with another favorite client (can you tell I have many?), I had another revelation for the single people of the world. This revelation can actually be applied to many situations and circumstances, but is very fitting when applied to relationships.
