Who am I anyway?
After 25 years as an
award winning
advertising Execu-
woman I'm on a
campaign to inspire
women to unzip their
inner joy through
my writing, paintings
and transformational
speaking. To find out
more about me
over here.

Do you know a Goddess
of Transformation?

Each month we'll honor
a woman who has
changed her life or
someone else's. 

Contact me to
nominate yourself or
another goddess
(and tell me why).

What are you giving yourself for Mother’s Day?

Even if you don’t have a child, you deserve a gift this Sunday.

After all, Mother’s Day is all about giving.

And Goddess knows, you’re a Giver (with a capital “G.”)

You give to your family, your friends, your work, your pets, your community, your causes, your you-name-it’s.

But, what about Yourself?

What about that  little girl inside of you who gets lost in the endless to-do lists of your grownup life?

You know, the one who tries so hard to make everyone else happy that she forgets to listen to the voice of her own heart?

How about nurturing and nourishing your Inner Child?

This Sunday, give her the priceless gift of being heard.

It’s easy. Just find a quiet place away from any resident eye-rollers. (You know who I mean.)

Take a few deep breaths, give yourself a great big hug and ask, “What do you need right now?”

Then, listen.

It may take a little while. (After being neglected for so long, your Inner Child may be a little shy about speaking up.)

But if you’re patient, you’ll hear her shy, sweet little voice.

She may ask for a nap, a playdate or a bubble bath.

Perhaps she wants some cookies and milk, a hula hoop or some crayons.

Or maybe she’d just like to hear some of those things that most of us didn’t hear enough of as a child.

Like “You don’t have to be perfect. Just be yourself.”

Or “I know you’ll do the right thing. I believe in you.”

(Ahhh….breathe that in. It’s not something you’ll find at Bloomingdale’s.)

This Sunday, give your Inner Critic the day off.

And see what a gift it is to re-parent yourself with such whole-hearted acceptance.

The thing is, the more we learn to give to ourselves in this loving, non-judgmental way, the more we have to give everyone else.

Including our own mothers.

All my love to the sweet child that you are.
