Old friends out last their usefulness

December 19, 2010

It’s winter time in NE Ohio!  We got pummeled with 30″ of snow last week, followed by rain on Saturday only to have it dump 18″ on us since Monday and its still coming down!  

Winter is a great time to review your goals, enjoy your accomplishments of the year, set some new goals and ponder what you’d like to do differently in the New Year.  It’s also a great time to reflect on what is important, notice what you’ve released, and rejoice in how far you’ve come!

I opened a gift yesterday!  One that sat on my bookshelf for several years all wrapped in beautiful paper with a big bow on top!  The first year it peered at me and I thought about it a lot.  I wanted to unwrap it and dig out the gift, but (more…)

Lack of Customer Service can kill you

September 1, 2010

As a consumer I have been overwhelmed with the lack of customer service in today’s world.   One incident I can overlook and with a busy schedule who has time to follow through and complain about the lack of service we get?  My recent experiences have taken on new meaning when it came to care my father received after a stroke or rather the lack of service and follow through with doctor specifications!

Paying it forward with Gratitude

January 7, 2010

I wonder how many people took to heart my November message about Gratitude?  When you put something out to the universe rarely do you really know how it perceived, its impact anyone or if anyone actually read what you wrote!  On a rare occasion, someone might actually tells you of your impact and how it effected their life.

My rare occasion occurred when I visited my eye doctor.  He was so excited to tell me how he took my message of gratitude to heart and challenged not only his children but his church as well.   (more…)


December 23, 2009

As we celebrate the beauty of the holiday and bring 2009 to a close, I encourage you to embrace the joys of the year, release the wounds of the past to the universe for healing, and open your arms wide to happiness and abundance in the New Year.

I share with you the words of “The Greatest Gifts” with the desire for you to embrace and allow them to be alive in you now and throughout the New Year.

May we break boundaries, tear down walls, and build on the foundation of goodness inside each of us.


May we look past differences, gain understanding, and embrace acceptance. (more…)

Gratitude – pass it on

November 24, 2009

Thanksgiving provides the perfect time to reflect and acknowledge the many blessings in our lives so we can continue to manifest more of them. Why not  reserve more than one day a year to recognize what is important to you?  Stop right now and make a date with yourself 4 times a year to reflect on the blessings in your life. Schedule a date for yourself in your Blackberry, Outlook, I-Phone, paper calendar (yes, people  still use the good old standby paper method) or what ever system you use and give yourself 5 minutes 4 times a year to take stock of what’s important to you.   Heck, go ahead, challenge yourself to do it more than 4 times a year! Or what if instead of keeping it to yourself, you TOLD people that you were grateful for them, or something they did right when they did it? What difference would it make in you, your family, friends, employees, and co-workers, gosh what might be different with each person you touch?    (more…)

Jaycee Dugard was kidnapped 18 years ago, she suffered tremendous abuse at the hands of her abductors , and is using the power of horses to heal.

Those of us who introduce horses to people through Equine Assisted Learning, Coaching, Leadership, workshops or Therapy know the changes and empowerment people experience in the presence of these magnificent animals. (more…)

Inspiration in a home run!

November 10, 2009

Turn on the news and what do you see and hear?  Another robbery?  Child abduction?  More layoffs?  Plant closings?  More jobs lost or homes being foreclosed on?  It can be down right depressing to hear all the negative things going on in the world today. 

Wouldn’t it be great to hear of the good things happening?  All the hundreds and thousands of people giving of their time to feed those in need.  To hear about the father (more…)

Horse friend talks about Horse Slaughter

September 14, 2009

Back about 4 years ago I had a young lady who, at the time was 11 years old, that loved horses and would do anything to be around them.  Kelly spent a lot of time with me, doing chores in the barn and around the farm just to spend time with the horses.  She did some of the dirtiest jobs with a smile!  Kelly soon learned about the work I do with humans and horses.  She used her knowledge to write a paper for school.  I recently came across this paper and wanted to share her story with you.

What's holding you back?

September 1, 2009

I’ve heard many times from friends, family and clients that they wish they could change.  My response to all of them is “What’s holding you back?”  Well, when I’m talking with friends and family I try not to put on my “coaching hat,” but with clients that’s what they want from me.  To push them into thinking differently and explore what is holding them back from changing, getting more out of their lives, sorting out their dreams and goals, pushing them into developing an action plan, supporting behavioral changes, and being with them as they move their goals into reality.
