"It's time to stop searching ... and simply START shining"

I share more of my story of being a highly sensitive & creative humanitarian HERE

Do you ever wonder what you could be doing to create a better world…without exhausting yourself in the process?

Would you love to have more time in your calendar, more meaning in your life…less clutter in your closets?

As a highly creative, sensitive (& organized) person, I’ve cultivated a life of spacious, joyful and generous flow.

Let me help you create more joyful flow in your life, too.

Simple?  Not always, but as we live with our hearts wide open, our days free of excess clutter, something magical happens.

We begin to SHINE as a solution for whatever is in front of us.

A new (spacious) normal

One thing is certain. Things are not as they were. Normal is taking on a new definition, and life is moving in ways we barely recognize. Fear can still be felt in the air, but also hope and the blossoming of the earth. Here, in this new normal, we are given a choice....

Your Love Matters

“The page awaits, pretending to be blank.” It’s the beginning of a new month, and I’m sitting with a blank page and so many ideas that my brain has gone into overload. The ideas are circling and layering on top of one another so fast that I’m losing any thread of...

The Inner Joy of Tidying Up

I’m sitting in the middle of a clutter-clearing project with everything I own piled in a room waiting for me to decide what to keep and what to let go. Have you ever been in the middle of one of those clutter messes? Marie Kondo might invite me to go through the pile,...

Set a New Year Evolution.

Every New Year brings a dialogue about why resolutions don't really work, and many (including me) prefer to simply choose a single word or short phrase, a mantra, to inspire us forward. I call these 'NY Evolutions' because I allow them to change as I grow. I also use...
