You have the power to get out of the well one step at a time

The other day while doing some research I came across this fable which really spoke to my heart.

The Farmer’s Donkey

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the
farmer tried to figure out a way to get him out. Finally he decided it was probably impossible and the animal was old and the well was dry anyway, so it just wasn’t worth it to try and get the donkey out. So the farmer asked his neighbors to come over and help him cover up the well.

Welcome 2016

With a warm heart I welcome in 2016. 

The year 2015 was a year filled with change and challenges for me. I founded Chrysalis Healing & Coaching in the spring. A time for new beginnings for me and with enthusiasm I embraced the challenges of owning a business.

Along with those challenges 2015 also brought some personal challenges from my past that I had not completely dealt with.

For the first time in my life I was in severe physical pain.  I could barely walk the pain in my left hip and leg was so extreme.

Moving Forward

My body is tired, I am tired. Tired of all the pain I have endured in my life. Pain from my past. Deep physical and emotional pain stored away deeply hidden and rooted in my body.
I am tired of hiding, protecting and holding on to my past. I am tired of all the abuse I endured in my life- the physical, the emotional and the sexual. I am tired of blaming and holding myself responsible for all the abuse. I am tired of feeling ashamed of myself. I am tired of hiding behind masks.
I am tired of playing the victim role.

Living a Passionate Life

" Is what you are doing with your life worth the one life you have?"

A few weeks ago I attended a social networking event where the guest speaker Theresa Laurico asked us a very powerful and thought provoking question- "Is what you are doing with
your life worth the one life you have?"...

I had a chance to revisit this question recently when I was saddened to find out that a friend of mine's beloved pet had just passed away. She had just recently retired a few months ago and her pet was her life.

Embracing Change: Transitioning from corporate world to a student

April 7, 2015

Making a change in your life can be difficult, and stressful.

I was working in a corporate world mainly in the financial industry for 23 years when I knew I had to make a major change in my life. I was unhappy, extremely bored, frustrated and unfulfilled. I felt there was something lacking in my life.

When I was young and graduated from high school I did not know what I wanted out of life so
I got a job in the corporate world. Twenty three years later I was miserable and wanted something more meaningful out of life.
