How To Be Okay with Not Making Everybody Happy

It turns out that it is actually impossible to make everybody happy. I know because I’ve tried. In some primitive way humans are wired to depend on others. Being accepted by the pack can feel urgent and necessary, even when it’s totally irrational. At times, having everyone like me not only felt important, it felt […]

Why You Should Do Less

It feels like everyone I know is overwhelmed almost all of the time. I speak with clients, friends, and even family members who are retired who consistently feel like they have more to do than they can successfully cram into a day. My neighbor bashfully confessed to missing the days of covid lockdown where she […]

Getting Over Getting Older

For as long as I can remember, I’ve associated aging with physical and mental decline, depression, illness, and isolation. Not shockingly, I have amassed plenty of evidence to support this not-so-fabulous belief system. Most impactfully, when my father turned seventy he fell into a severe depression. He was one of the most robust, energetic, vital […]

5 Reasons I Don’t Want a Bigger House

Time for some real talk. Most people want a bigger house. I don’t. Our home is 1200 square feet, which feels absolutely perfect for our busy family of four.

How to Plan Your Dream Day

One day, many years ago, Jordan surprised me by driving me to the Oakland International Airport. I didn’t realize until he parked what was happening, but it ended up being one of the most delightful days of my life. We flew less than an hour to Los Angeles and spent the next 24 hours doing […]

5 Tips for a Fresh Start in the New Year

Here’s How to Tackle Those Dreaded Tasks

The other day I found myself on the floor in the fetal position wailing “BEING AN ADULT IS HARD!” while my whole family laughed at me. This is a true story. I am very good at being productive and ticking things off my list (oh, how I love a list), but when asked to do […]

5 Things to do When Life Gets Messy

Things have felt a little messy recently. I found out that my book was stuck on a port in a far off place, and that after months of planning the timing of every last detail to correspond with the launch date, I would have to delay my launch by three weeks. Starting to travel for […]

5 Things to do When You’re Feeling Overwhelmed

Anyone else feeling stressed, swamped, or just generally overwhelmed – or just me? Admittedly, I have some incredible things going on in my life (book out this fall! Another book in the works!) but that doesn’t stop my brain from creating a whole host of reasons to feel anxious. I’ve always been a deeply sensitive […]
