Perhaps I feel so optimistic right now because it's the
beginning of a New Year; or maybe it's the hope that's
coming from the upcoming political shift in our nation;
but, whatever the reason, I am grateful. I am
experiencing that after-a-good-thunderstorm-feeling
that can only come from the end of tough times, a
fresh mind, and the ability to make wise choices.
Even if you don't share the same sense of optimism
right now, I encourage you to put away your umbrellas
and dare to get out in the sun!

|Can't We All Just Get Along?
Is there a science to getting along with other people or
do you experience it more as a roll of the dice?
Granting credibility to the fact that some people just
can't be in the same room together without
sparks, I would like to offer up that there is something
to learn from every single instance of spark
you encounter along the way.
Taking the idea that whatever ignites us - either
positively or negatively - is a part of us that we have yet
to own. It is the shadow upon which Carl Jung
described as a set of unclaimed characteristics of our
personality that exist in us all. He surmised that we

wide range of
our own personality.
Great. But how? If you can't see it, you can't own it,

we do see it. That is, if we choose to recognize it. The
people in our lives bring us our shadow to the big
Relationships can be tricky as well as one of the
fastest ways to
achieve wholeness. Here are my top tips to
- Never EVER, EVER, talk about someone
who isn't present.
- Conserve your precious energy by not trying to
figure out another's motives. That's their work to do
(with their coach perhaps!). You will never know for
anyway unless, of course, you ask them - GASP!
- In touchy situations, speak your truth by beginning
each sentence with the pronoun "I". "I feel" also is a
good starter. Stay away from sentences that begin
with "You". That's up to the other person to state (or
- No one has the power to make you feel any thing
or any one way. Don't give your power away like that.
- Exercise the muscle of your intuition until it is spot-
on! If you don't use it, you lose it. Work it until you can
trust it to help you navigate social situations.
- Decide where you choose to shine your light rather
than allow anyone attracted to it to come into your
- Oh, and did I mention to Never EVER, EVER, talk
about someone who isn't present?
None of us are
exempt from dealing with challenging relationship
issues. Whether it's your co-worker or your spouse,
you will be sparked on repeated
occasions. But each of us has the potential to do
so in a way that honors our integrity. Nobody said
relationships were a trip to Vegas, but they do hold the
odds of a good pay-out!
