Besides all the cute costumes our kids wore and the pounds of candy that made its way back into our homes yesterday (which I’ve already had too much of), many across our globe began a ritual of remembrance. What is rooted in Aztec tradition, The Day of the Dead has been carried on through many cultures, most significantly in Mexico. 

Six years ago I found myself smack dab in the middle of a Day of the Dead parade in...

The pain right under my shoulder blade began a few weeks ago. My trainer, Linda, and I have reconnected again (picture a vivacious woman with 80s bleach blonde hair pulled back with a scrunchy and a New Jersey accent. SHE.IS. EVERYTHING). 

Kettle bell exercises, god-awful dumbbell plank lifts and heavy overhead medicine ball swings had to be the culprit and instigator to my burning and throbbing scapula.

Or maybe it’s...

For something we can’t see, the energy around us can take a toll on our bodies, minds and lives. Many of us are energy sponges, soaking in the energy from the room we walk into, the people we are around, and even the vibes from a situation. 
 
In some cases, taking on what’s around us is a good thing.  The buzz from a live sporting event can drive our energy up, so can a hike on a beautiful path in nature beneath the...

When I was younger my dad used to read the obits, as he called them. I always found it fascinating how someone's long life could be condensed into just a few sentences. You have to really choose your words wisely!

Which is why I was careful when I wrote my own obituary last week, an exercise that turned out to be way more insightful than I thought it would be.

My intention was to see if I was staying true to m...

Dear Miracle Worker,

Do you feel comfortable trusting your intuition and following through with life choices based on your inner guidance?

Most of us do not. 

Maybe we've gone too far down a path and don't feel like that inner nudge to change careers or do something else is logical. 

Most of the time our intuition is not logical, which can make it feel really scary to trust. 

We can't see it, taste it,...

Hi Miracle Worker, 

After a two week Italian adventure I'm back in my home office. A few deer have welcomed us home with backyard visits. I think they may have missed us. :-) 

I love coming back to a clean house. Everything is in order, organized and arranged. Right away I had a beautiful painting I purchased in Rome framed. It now hangs in our kitchen above a furniture piece that sat in my grandmother's...

I’m getting up the energy to pack my bags for Italy. We leave tomorrow and I haven’t packed a thing. This trip, while exciting to think about, has left me with a ton of resistance. 
 
I can hear the calls now- “are you crazy?! It’s Italy, go, enjoy, eat lots of pasta, enjoy the wine, drink in the views and stop complaining!”
 
But the fact is, this trip is a stark reminder that I am divorced. Which, as someone who va...
