Faking It

I have a confession to make.  Sometimes I fake it.  I must admit that the idea of “faking it” rubs me the wrong way.  It seems disingenuous and insincere. I like to think of myself as authentic and real.  But as illogical as it may sound, I have learned that if I strive to [...]

A New Routine For Mistakes

Lately, I’ve been thinking about mistakes.  It’s a relevant topic for me since I am learning new dance routines!  Believe me, making mistakes is not new to me.  I make mistakes of varying size and consequence on a consistent basis.  And I must say that I am good at deconstructing my mistakes, attempting to [...]

Resolution Crisis

This past year is the first time in a long time, that I have not accomplished my committed New Year Resolution.  This year I had set my eyes on completing a 100-mile ultra-run.  A few months into training, my body let me know that was not in the cards for me.  Eventually I made [...]

Date Night Check List

In Defense of Beauty

I have an uncomfortable relationship with beauty.  For me, and I think for many women, beauty is a loaded word.  As women, we get mixed messages about beauty.  If we care too much about our appearance, we are vain, if we don’t care enough, we are lazy.  As we age the messages only become [...]
